A writer for hire is a goldmine to entrepreneurs! Most business owners are overloaded with the various day-to-day activities of operating their company. They get to pick their own hours, but those hours usually push way beyond any 9 to 5 job. Personally, I can attest to that! No, the average CEO has no time to write a book. So, what’s the solution?
Hire a writer for hire. Hire a ghostwriter. It makes sense!
Would you like increased credibility?
If you’re a successful CEO, you probably know the effect of handing a potential client a book with your name blazoned on the cover, right? It’s one of the best ways to show credibility. People respond to published authors a little differently; you instantly become an expert in your field . You also gain peer respect.
However to maintain that respect, the book must be well-written. If you’re writing your memoir, it must be riveting, following all the basic rules of writing. Publishing a poorly written book with tons of errors will backfire on you.
Do you have a story to share?
Most successful entrepreneurs have many stories to share. Writers for hire know how to pull these stories together in such a way to create a book that won’t be put down. Perhaps you have created your businesses from scratch. How impressive is that?
Of course, I’m sure you made plenty of mistakes on your journey, and through those learning moments, I’m sure you’ve stumbled upon various key successful actions.
Those lessons can be key components for a great book.
Are you willing to share yours?
How many people are struggling in today’s economy? Many readers want to create their own thriving business, but don’t know what is involved.
They need guidance, and you can provide that!
Do you have advice for existing clients?
How many times have you repeated the same set of instructions for your customers? Wouldn’t it be great if you could just hand your client a book and have them read the relevant portions for their situation? Imagine the look on their face as they accept your book.
And if you’re a coach, your knowledge and advice could reach more people if you wrote a book. There are only so many hours in a day and so many people you can help one on one. By writing a book you can get your message out there to more people.
How can you market your book?
Once you have your book in hand, make sure to plan a marketing strategy:
- Offer to be a guest lecturer
- Give seminars around the country
- Build an attractive website with a blog
- Maintain a healthy social media campaign
As an author, you will want to give lectures or offer seminars to your fans. This is a great opportunity to sell your book and get more name recognition. It also allows you to get personal feedback from your readers.
You definitely will want an online presence. Make sure to have a good-looking website, with a strong call to action. Add in articles to give potential readers a taste of what you can do for them. Also, start your social media campaign now, as it takes time to build up a following.
Books help to brand your name. As more people buy and read your book, they will recommend it to others. Word will spread and your name will be better known.
Make sure to make your book available on eReaders. Amazon sells more eBooks than hard copy books today, because they are easy to produce and sell.
As a ghostwriter, a writer for hire, I can tell you that books help entrepreneurs on into the future. The book you write today will be passed around decades from now!
