I recently put up my Cleopatra’s Perfume book trailer in both color and black & white on several video sharing sites and thousands of hits later (okay, it’s under 3,000 total hits but we’re climbing every day!), the results are interesting:
On some sites like You Tube, the number of hits for each video are about equal.
On Metacafe the numbers are 802 hits for the black & white and just over 500 hits for the color–seems Cleopatra’s Perfume in black & white has gone viral. I located my black & white video on French and Finnish sites, sites from Mexico and Italy along with video search engine sites and feed sites.
You know what they say, a video is worth a thousand hits!
