How to make a book trailer?
Craft your trailer
Make a book trailer in your web browser
Forget about installing apps and worrying about file or platform compatibility. Flixier runs entirely in your browser, so you can use it to work on your book trailer from any computer, whether you’re at home or on the go. All you need is an internet connection. On top of that, we use powerful cloud servers to process your media in order to make sure that your book trailer is rendered and ready to publish in minutes, rather than hours, even if your computer is more suited for writing instead of being a graphics powerhouse.
Save time with an easy to use book trailer video maker
Use Flixier to free up more time to focus on your writing! Our video editor is easy to use and won’t have you wasting hours watching video editing tutorials online. Flixier offers an intuitive interface that’s clearly labeled and easy to use. Adding transitions and ready-made, professionally animated motion titles is as easy as clicking and dragging, and customizing them to your liking is no different than editing a manuscript in your favorite text editor.
Publish your book trailer on TikTok, YouTube or Instagram
Reach a wider audience by publishing your book trailer on every possible platform! Flixier makes it easy to create videos that are optimized for social media. You can easily convert clips from landscape to portrait and our Social Media Safe Zones tool will help you preview your trailer to make sure that nothing important will be blocked by the interface when your video goes live. Speaking of going live, when you decide to export your video, you can give it a title and a description and have it published to TikTok, YouTube, Instagram and Facebook, all at the same time!
Why use Flixier to create your own book trailer?
Find music for your book trailer
Nothing sets the mood better than music! Flixier lets you access a full library of copyright-free music right in the editor and add it to your video with the click of a button. After you add music to your video trailer, you can easily trim and cut it down to size. On top of that, you can also use the Audio track to find sound effects and make everything more immersive.
Create your own book trailer using images
You can use Flixier to add images to your video, or even create an entire book trailer using images. Our preset animations and effects allow you to add some dynamism to the images, and if you want to delve a little deeper you can even use our simple keyframes system to tilt, pan or zoom the “camera” in and out. Perfect for turning your book’s artwork into an engaging trailer!
Add transitions to your book trailer easily
Flixier offers you a library filled with dozens of transitions which you can add to your video, text, or other graphical elements. All you have to do is open the Transitions menu on the left and drag them down to the timeline. You can easily swap between transitions to find what works best for your scene and control how slow or fast they are by dragging on them in the timeline.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the 4 elements you need to make a book trailer?
In order to make a good book trailer, you first need to have a good hook. Ideally, this would be the premise of your story, a short summary that can intrigue the viewer without spoiling anything, leaving them wanting more. Another crucial element are the visuals, which need to reflect the genre and tone of your story. Add some music that evokes strong feelings and sets the right mood and end it with a good Call to Action that invites the viewer to buy the book or directs them to your website for more information.
How long can a book trailer be?
Ideally, a book trailer should be shorter than two minutes. A good, tightly edited trailer can be even shorter. Keeping it under one minute would be ideal since it would allow you to share it over YouTube Shorts, TikTok and Instagram Reels as well as traditional video sharing platforms like YouTube.
Are book trailers effective?
Book trailers can definitely be an effective way to let people know about your book, especially now that more and more readers are using video platforms like TikTok or YouTube to discuss their favorite books.
Why are book trailers important?
Book readers spend more and more time online, and communities centered around books are taking off on all the popular social media platforms. Since the most consumed content on these platforms is video, it only makes sense that creating a trailer video for your book is a great way to reach these people and get the word out about your new release.
