Whether you're new and want to make any of the best selling lists, or you've been mid-list for years and want to push through to the next level, we have strategies designed to help achieve your goals. We do a big push the first week the book is out and we develop a video description that tells the public you're an author not to be missed! Each campaign is designed specifically for the author's goals and needs.

What can COS do for me?
We will create a book video that performs!
Why a book video? It works. Video offers a compelling way to communicate your marketing message and can be strategically utilized to reach your unique audience.
- Video Quality: The video must be aesthetically pleasing to watch, with a clear visual flow and crisp, clear image.
- Video message: The text, narration and/or visual elements must sync to give a clear message as to what the video is, what the story is, who wrote it and a call to action.
- Video Utilization: We create videos that have a wide range of uses. Our formatting is title-safe so it can play on large screens and is formatted so it can play on mobile devices.
- Video performance: Having a great video is only half the work. Circle of Seven Productions has the expertise and knowledge to know the best place to market your video. We’ll place your video on the websites that will bring the highest visibility to your book; leading to higher sales!
We help you achieve your goals!
Looking to break through to the next level with my career:
New Author Marketing Campaign:
Congratulations! We know that being a new author is equal parts excitement and nervousness. You need to let people know who you are and what your book is about in a big way, right away! We have a campaign for new authors that we think you'll love! We take a two-tier approach so we get your book video to as many people as possible, and to as many readers, booksellers and bloggers as possible. For new authors we also recommend the Social Media Marketing Package.
Making a big change in my writing!
Whether you're coming back after a long absence, changing genres or adding something totally new, we can help create a campaign for your new book, series and even for YOU as an author! It's important to reach readers what will love what you write, so if you've changed your genre or if you're looking to re-target a new audience we can work with you to reach them using your COS video!
Branding is a way to build trust with readers. It lets them know that, whatever it is you write, they can trust that you’ll give a good story. Branding also gives readers an idea of what you're about, what you write and helps make a personal connection between you and your reader. We have created branding videos for bestselling authors, new authors and self-published authors. We work with you to create a video that shows your style!
Making a bestseller list is a dream-come-true for most authors. COS has a specific campaign for those authors hoping to make bestseller lists. We know that the first week of sales in very important and we have a series of specific tasks we put into motion the week your book is out and the days prior to the release date. For this goal we recommend our Social Media Marketing Package to give you that extra exposure.
Website Traffic Building:
Your website is where you want to drive traffic so readers can stay informed about your books, backlist and future releases as well as events and other news. If you have a newsletter, blog or members section we want to help you build your audience and your mailing list.
Target Audience/Special Groups:
We have over 400 profiles in a variety of online social and news sites. We have researched the type of audience that goes to each type of site, what opportunities there are to reach out to them and what types of very specific interests they have. If you're looking to reach a very specific type of audience let us know! We can match you and your book to the readers most likely to be interested.
Movie Options, Foreign Rights and Publicity
Dream big! We are successful in helping authors get their videos to sites where producers and production companies look for the next big movie. We also have the ability to create your video in other languages. We understand the need for b-roll, which happens when you're being interviewed and they play a video to introduce you. Additionally, we’ll provide a link to your video for you to send to producers for consideration of being on a show. There are a lot of uses for book video beyond YouTube.
If you're looking to advertise online, television, movie theaters or other out-of-home advertising we can help format your video to any specifications. Formatting fees may apply. All COS videos are title-safe which means the text will show if the video is played on a television screen. Please let us know before production of your video begins if you are looking to use the video for advertisements.
Let us know what your goal is and we will do our best to match what we create and what we do with your video to the goal you have in mind.
