HOW WRITING A BOOK WILL TRANSFORM YOUR BUSINESS
A few years ago I decided to push past my insecurities and write a book that had been stirring in my spirit for some time. For years I not only lived but was consumed in a state of fear, not really believing that I was capable of what I desired. And now that I am on the other side I am able to see truly how costly that fear was.
When I wrote my book it literally transformed my life. One major thing my book did for me was it allowed me to start a business and expand my reach quickly. Because of this experience, it has been a passion of mine to help other women entrepreneurs learn the power of adding author to their bio.
Did you know that there are 28 million registered businesses in the United States? In addition, there are 20 million entrepreneurs and network-marketing individual. The market is becoming saturated and the competition is getting thick. If you are in business it is imperative that you find a way to stand out if you want to be noticed and not just blend in. In my experience, writing a book is a GREAT way to help position yourself as an expert and help your business to stand out.
In this blog, I will share the seven reasons why you should write your book to expand your brand…..
YOU CAN GAIN CREDIBILITY IN YOUR FIELD
When you write a book, it instantly gives you credibility in your market. People will instantly begin to see you as an authority in the area you write a book. For example, if you write about getting out of debt, you may begin to get speaking engagements regarding financial transformation etc.
YOU CAN EXPAND YOUR STREAMS OF INCOME
When you write your book, you can make money from your sales. In addition, you can begin to be paid to speak; you could make workbooks and even teach courses. There are so many additional ways to make money from your book. In January of 2018 Amazon Kindle paid out 18,000,000 to their authors and of that the independent authors are the highest earners!
YOU CAN CONNECT WITH POWERFUL PEOPLE
Individuals on blogs, radios, and other business owners love to feature authors. When you add author to your bio people will want to feature you.
YOU EXPAND YOUR REACH
Your book could be sold ALL around the world. This allows people from all over to really get to know who you are and what you have to offer. To win in business you must be willing to get in front of people. A book is a great way to you’re your message in front of millions of people.
IT INCREASES THE LIKELIHOOD THAT PEOPLE WILL BUY FROM YOU
When you offer paid programming, people might not be ready to buy from you. When you write a book, it is a safe way for people to see your content and what you have to offer without spending a fortune. Once they see what you have is valuable they may be more inclined to purchase bigger options from you.
YOUR BOOK WILL HELP YOU LEAVE A LEGACY YOU'RE PROUD OF
Writing your book is a great way to leave behind your words and what you believe in. Long after you pass your book will still be around and it is something your family can be proud of.
IT'S A GREAT WAY TO EXPAND YOUR SKILLS
Writing is something people often throw behind them when graduating high school. When you write a book you get the opportunity to learn more about what you’re capable of and what you have to share with the world. I believe that when you push past your comfort zone it gives you an opportunity to realize some strengths that you did not know existed previously.
As an author, I could go on for days about the blessing of becoming an author. I could literally give a hundred more reasons why becoming an author is the way to go but these are the BEST ones to get you started today. The truth is this… There are YES a lot of authors all over the world. There are not necessarily a lot of authors in your industry. If you want to win in your business, and stand out to your tribe, you need to get started NOW!
