12 Reasons why you should be a Contributing Author?
1. Books Are Becoming the New “Business Card” – As a result of the explosion of book self-publishing, the use of ‘The book as a business card’ has added a new and powerful tool to the marketing arsenal of many successful business people. Pretty soon if you do not have a book, you will be in the minority, but if you act now this book could be only the first of many in your writing career.
2. Share Your Story
We all have a story to share that can encourage, motivate or inspire others. Do your part to empower our readers to learn from your experiences and focus their energy in a more direct manner that will result in better outcomes.
3. Easy & Economical
Have you ever dreamt of becoming an author, but become overwhelmed and frustrated with the steps involved? Contributing to this compilation book is a simple process that is easily accomplished at thousands of dollars less than having your own book. All with the same results.
4. Brand Recognition
Use your new book to create and promote the most important product you have to offer, “YOU.” Being an author will help you to create and be recognized by your own personal brand that will ultimately provide you with a valuable commodity that no one else can offer.
5. Increased Credibility
A book exponentially increases your credibility, making it super easy to sell ANY product or service you promote—or promote on behalf of others. Think about the potential revenue each year from just one more client at quadruple your normal fees. Then multiply that by how many new clients you want to gain. Cha-ching!
6. Unique & Effective Exposure
Spread the word about your business via this very effective “word-of-mouth” marketing tool. When most other marketing efforts fall short due to our overstimulated lifestyles, this can be the best way to receive the biggest impact from your market efforts to help you get and maintain “top-of-mind awareness” with your clients and prospects.
7. New Added Respect & Loyalty
Being a published author will allow you to gain the respect, attention, and support of your clients, colleagues, and peers, who will develop a strong loyalty to you because of this accomplishment.
8. Expertise Status
Establish you as an expert in your field, so you attract significantly more and better-qualified clients who are willing and able to buy from you. When the time comes and they need or want your products or services, they will automatically turn to the expert in the field—YOU!
9. Increase Your Network
Participating in a compilation book project will give you the opportunity to connect with and cross-promote other like-minded women who have created significant lives. Participating in a book with featured celebrity authors will give you added credibility and open up the doors into all new networking circles.
10. Celebrity Style Recognition & Media Awareness
Create and maintain an instant “fan” base that will seek you out to hire and buy from you over and over—and refer you even more business. You will also attract media interviews, potential high-level partners, endorsement requests and possible speaking gigs.
11. Create a Reoccurring Revenue Stream
Do you want to know how to build your business, while working less than you do right now? Create a line of products that will provide you with continuous revenue from that original work. Your book can be the first step in this process to create a financially abundant and prosperous future with more time to spend how you choose.
12. Fulfill a Dream – Leave a Legacy
While there are many projects we can undertake that will give us great satisfaction, most cannot compare to the utter gratification achieved by fulfilling your dream of having your own book. Your personal story, in print, will also be an amazing legacy for you to leave your family and friends.
