Publishing a book and earning

  • A lot of people want to write a book, however they have no audience.
  • A blog can bring you branding, can help you connect with other people in your industry, help you understand what people like to read about, more importantly what people don’t like. All this can help you write a book that can become profitable.
  • A lot of people don’t consider a book because you only get a couple dollars a book but that’s not just what you earn.
  • Publishing a book can allow you to then launch a product because people always want more, also a more exciting prospect is being paid to speak. If you are published, your automatically seen as an expect, it doesn’t matter if you never sell more then a dozen books, this means you can charge to speak and charge a lot more for consulting.
  • There’s so many different ways to go about publishing a book, most choose self publish but if your blog is successful, either they will find you or in my case, a friend connected me with his published and told me I should write a book. Someone in your industry who blogs, will also have published a book, help them and they will help you.
Benefits:
  • Authority.
  • Long term earnings.
  • Increase your charge for consulting.
  • Paid to speak at events.
Drawbacks:
  • Timely or expensive if you have a ghostwriter.
  • Doesn’t make you a lot of money on it’s own.
