I think book trailers need to be really high quality to succeed. I've seen so many poorly made ones that would actually put me off reading the book.

But if you really must...

The two main things I would recommend:

1. Make sure it's 30 seconds or under. Nothing worse than sitting through 2 minutes or more of what is basically a bad powerpoint presentation.

2. Concentrate on the words used in your trailer not on the "effect" of how they appear on screen.
