Get More Reviews for Your Book via YouTube
One way you can get more reviews for your book is via YouTube.
YouTube. You know it, you love it, you spend hours of your time watching new music videos, movie trailers, and tutorials on it. But did you know that YouTube is also the hub to which many an avid reader flocks? Enter the BookTuber.
There is a huge community of BookTubers on YouTube that regularly post videos sharing their thoughts on new books that they’ve read. Most BookTuber’s have a devoted following. People who closely follow the world of YouTube – which is a lot – subscribe to their videos and watch them regularly, the same as if they were tuning in to their favorite TV show.
For this reason, BookTubers are a fantastic source of exposure for your book! Not only do they get the word out about your book, they provide great feedback and entertaining commentary. Not to mention they’re generally super friendly and helpful!
Take a stab at reaching out to some BookTuber’s, you may be surprised at how many of them are willing to review your book!
We’ve put together a list of some of the BookTubers we’ve worked with in the past and have found to be open to checking out the latest in the book world. As with any other reviewer, be sure to read their About page and make sure that your book falls into their accepted genres and that they are accepting review requests. Most BookTubers have their contact information listed on their YouTube account. When reaching out to BookTubers that you feel would be a good fit for your book, offer to send them a complimentary copy of your book in exchange for an honest review. The more BookTuber’s you can get to agree to review your book, the better!
Now that we’ve observed the niceties, it’s time to get out there and meet your friendly neighborhood BookTuber! Here are a few of our favorite BookTubers to get you started:
