News & Opinion: Authors in Moving Pictures

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 2:46 PM – Filed under: Marketing & Sales, Publishing Industry

Anyone spending anytime online has been to YouTube. I thought I would point you to a couple of authors who are using the site to promote what they do.

Of course, you will find Customer Evangelist Jackie Huba on YouTube. You get the first five minutes of a keynote she did.

You can also find Jeff Pfeffer and Bob Sutton talking about their book Hard Facts. I take a little credit for this one. They sent me a video link and I immediately told them to get it posted up on YouTube.

I did some searches for others like Jim Collins or Marcus Buckingham getting no results. Even Scoble only has a really poorly recorded 1:17 piece.

Are there others out there that I have missed?
