Think You're Fast at Typing?

This is a little off the beaten path for Writers on the Move, but it sure is entertaining.

I don't usually spend time watching YouTube video, but a particular video lassoed me in.

I found this piano player who seems to have lightening in his fingers. And, it seems there are piano stations all over the place for anyone to play - in airports, in malls . . .

While this doesn't really have anything to do with writing or book marketing, it's an excellent example of the power of video. It made me stop and watch. Hey, I guess it does have to do with marketing after all. You've got to have something to GRAB the audience with and something that will hook them - keep them in place long enough for you to get your message across.

Try creating a video as part of your book marketing strategy.

Hope you like Boogie Woogie!

I'd be one of those people who stopped to watch!

If you watched it, we'd love to know what you thought. And, of course, please share!

Wow! I have never seen anyone play this fast.

Great reminder to all writers - we need to grab our audience's attention!

I know, Kathleen. He amazed me. And, yes, video done right does grab attention!

This is FANTASTIC, Karen! Thanks for the energy break - now I can do everything faster this afternoon. I flipped over to another one of his YT videos that included a short interview and heard that he is mostly self-taught - WOW! thanks for posting it!

Karen Cioffi said...

Oh, wow, Deborah. How interesting. I didn't know he was mostly self-taught. Some people just have an innate ability for certain things. He definitely has it for piano playing! Thanks for letting us know that!
