Your name, as an author, on the cover of a book… It would be exciting, right? Not only is it exciting to see your name printed on the cover of a book, but it’s also a great way to market your business . That is why this note reviews some reasons for writing a book.
If you’ve always wanted to write a book but haven’t had the time yet, here are five reasons why writing that book should be a priority right now.
5 Reasons To Write A Book
Or at least 5 reasons why every entrepreneur should write a book.
1. Position Yourself As An Authority In Your Sector Or On A Specific Topic
There is a certain prestige when one is cataloged as the author of a book. People naturally assume that you know what you’re talking about; After all, you did publish a book on the subject, didn’t you? Your book is a way to share knowledge about your industry and stimulate reader interest.
People are more likely to think of you when they need products or services that your company produces because they have already read your book and consider you an expert on the subject.
2. Writing A Book Opens The Door To Speaking Opportunities
If you’ve never sold from a stage, you’re missing out on a great opportunity to sell more of your products or services to a captive, pre-qualified audience. When you write a book, people come to you and ask you to present a workshop or session at conferences full of people interested in your products or services. It’s easy to set up a sector somewhere in the same room, to sign your books, talk to people and sell, sell, sell!
Giving lectures, apart from the fact that sometimes you get paid for it, increases your visibility and your prestige.
3. Writing A Book Is Better Than Any Business Card
It’s unlikely that someone will throw away a printed book if you give it to them (or a digital copy that they can download directly to their e-Reader device). In general they save it, read it, sometimes share it.
Even if they don’t read it, their presence reminds them that you are the expert on the subject , the book is proof of that.
Unlike a business card that often gets lost among the papers, a book will be located on the shelf or in an e-Reader, always available to be consulted and with contact information at hand.
4. Digital Publishing Offers Advertising Opportunities
The beauty of the digital edition is that you can link directly in the content, on the bio page, and even on the front and back covers. So when someone finds an interesting topic, they can immediately click on the link to reach a specific page on your website or blog.
And when you self-publish (which is very easy to do) you also control the content of your book. You can be as egotistical as you want – although you probably don’t want to turn your book into a 250-page ad. However, you can directly reference your company’s products or services when it makes sense to do so.
5. Another Reason To Write A Book Is To Get Additional Sources Of Income
Why not make money with your book? Editing and uploading your book to Amazon is a simple process, and remember, Amazon is the bookstore giant. Even if you don’t rank first in your book category, you could certainly earn some extra income from sales.
The sales of your book are only limited by the amount of time and effort you put into marketing it.
When you are ready to benefit from having your own book, know that help is available.
If you don’t feel comfortable writing , you can always hire what is called a “ghostwriter.”
And if you don’t have time to market it , you can hire an internet marketer to capitalize on promotional opportunities that will lead to more revenue for your business.
There has never been a better time to have your own book in print and in its digital or ebook version .
