A book can be a hugely powerful marketing tool. Writing a book can give you authority and credibility in your industry. It also raises your profile and increases your reach. So how do you go about writing your own book?
Ginny Carter is a successful ghost writer and the award winning author of the book “Your Business Your Book”. This helpfully takes small business owners through the process of planning, writing and promoting a book which will have a major impact on the success of your business.
Write a book to promote your business
We spoke about why a book is a great marketing tool for your business and how to turn your expertise into something that your ideal audience wants to read. Ginny had some great advice if you find the idea of putting your ideas out into the world somewhat daunting. We also talked a lot about finding the time to write – and surprisingly it’s not about clearing your diary!
And finally, once you’ve written your book, Ginny has some helpful advice for promoting it. Do the things that make you comfortable, because the marketing that works is the marketing you do.
