How Writers & Readers can use Twitter’s Vine-Sherri Rosen Publicity Intl, NYC

How Writers and Readers can use Twitter’s Vine

About two weeks ago, Twitter launched a new social media tool—the Vine. It’s one of the best new ways to see and share life in motion. Vine is a tool where you can record short, six-second videos. Full color. Full sound. And with full access to the worldwide web. And if you’re an author or a reader, it’s an amazing tool to celebrate books. Authors can create short, even beautiful, looping videos in a clean but sharp way for their potential readers to see. Already, Vine users are learning that it’s not just simple. It’s downright fun. Here are some of the basic features it offers authors and readers:

• Unlimited, free uploads?

• Instantly post videos on Vine, then share to Twitter and Facebook

• Find, follow, and interact with people close to you

• Explore trending posts, featured tags and editor’s picks?

We here at Sherri Rosen Publicity have been brainstorming a few simple tips that authors should remember when making their Vine videos. The goal? To engage fans in a new, free, and exciting way. First and most importantly, you need to have fun with it. Readers want to catch the good disease, as it were, and that means you need to share you passion and joy for the book. You want to create a short film that is enjoyable visually, but also emotionally grabbing, and functionally powerful.

How can you tell the reader what they need to know in less than six seconds? In short, why should they want to read your book? What’s in it for them? But apart from this basic information, how can you woo them in, make them laugh, make them come back? Above all, strive for simplicity. It can take some time, and a few trial efforts, but it can be done. Authors can make fun, aesthetically pleasing videos that readers will watch again and again. And these videos can turn into book sales.

Within only a few short weeks, Vine has become more than a tool. It’s an art form. Here at Sherri Rosen Publicity, we want to share in the excitement about what you are creating. Be yourself. Write with passion and live free. When you make your Vine video, share your exuberance with the world. And may your sales soar.

    Communication is crucial. We use our computers endlessly to chat to those in our lives. I can’t even dream of a world without modern computers.
