There are many reasons why a service provider needs to publish a book. Publishing a book isn’t easy, but it is not as difficult as many people think. You don’t have to get a big publisher to show off your knowledge. You can self-publish and attract a wide audience if you plan ahead.

Why Publish a Book?

Authors tend to have a certain status and level of respect in society. Authors are able to show off their creativity as fiction writers. Service providers should publish a book for the following reasons:

Expertise

As soon as you are a published author, you set yourself above the other providers in your niche or industry.

Accomplishment

Not everyone can write a book. Having one with your name on it is a symbol of what you have accomplished.

Gaining instant authority

A non-fiction author is seen as an expert in their field. This means they have many more opportunities to show off what they know. This means more chances to lure clients, because you will be seen as offering more value than service providers who are not published authors.

More money

Chance are you will be able to charge more for your services as a result of the media coverage you will get in relation to your book.

Use your book as a calling card

You can use excerpts from your book, or the book itself, as a way to get your foot in the door with top clients you would really like to work with.

Add links to your book on your LinkedIn profile

LinkedIn is the most trusted social network because it does not allow people to hide behind the cloak of anonymity. Link to your book and you will stand out from other people in your niche.

Add a new stream of revenue

Social media and other forms of marketing can also help you make book sales.

Get more consultancy work

You don’t always have to offer a full service to clients. You can become a consultant too, offering your expert advice. If you’re seen as someone in the know, with your finger on the pulse of your industry, you could have the chance to work with many high-paying clients.

Get media attention

Once you have published your book, issue a press release about it. The media attention you get could significantly extend the reach of your brand and business.

Speak in public

Groups and businesses are always looking for good public speakers with something interesting to say. For example, your local chamber of commerce will make all the arrangements. It is a great way to network with prospective clients and also give you the chance to sell and sign your book.

Book signings

Book signings are a great way to boost your profile and sell more books at the same time. If you’re a good speaker, other opportunities will arise – including a chance to work with the local media.

Help A Reporter Out (HARO)

HARO is a great way to get media attention, which in turn can lead to more clients. Offering to be an expert with whom they can consult is sure to raise your profile.

About Me

I've been designing and marketing websites and businesses for over 24 years and prior to this I worked in sales, marketing and big business for almost 18 years... which makes me not only old, but also highly experienced at this marketing and Internet stuff.  I've won lots of awards and helped thousands of people, and this website is a testament to the information I share freely to help others succeed online.

When I'm not designing websites, doing this online marketing stuff or writing. I love nothing more than getting out on a weekend and scuba diving. I'm a qualified rescue diver and love getting wet in the waters around Perth and Rottenest Island. I also cycle, which must be a sight as I'm not the thinnest of people (lol)... and a paddle on a kayak or a swim helps makes most weeks, perfect. At home I have a marine reef tank, which I just love and on top of that I've an awesome dog, called Ziggy.

What Can I Do For You?

I can work with you to design a website and marketing strategy that actually works. You'll get a website that looks fantastic but also attracts and engages your potential customers, helping generate leads, sales and profits.

What Will It Cost ?

A discussion about your requirements is completely free of charge.

Solutions are tailored to meet your budget and success goals as much as possible, and websites have been delivered costing just a few hundreds dollars a month or for one of payments of a few thousand... it all comes down to our discussions, if you want a website that generates millions of dollars in sales your budget will obviously be bigger, if you're a small business then your goals and costs will be more realistic, at least to start with.
