How to Promote Your Business with a Book

Why Promote Your Business with a Book?

Your Book Is a Big Business Card

Publishing a book is one of the best ways to promote your business and open new doors. Being a published author automatically denotes you have authority status, which increases perceived value about your work and builds trust. That means your book makes it easier to get interviews, speaking engagements, and higher-value clients. Using your book as a sales tool is a great way to pre-screen your prospects as well as educate them on your services. In short, your book is a win-win for both you and your client.

So what gets in the way of publishing a book for profit? Most professionals would say they don’t know the process or how to get started, much less promote it effectively. No matter how good the content of your book is and how much value it will give your future clients, your book needs to look good with an eye-catching cover and professional typesetting for interior pages as an initial indicator of the quality of your service delivery. The good news is we have editors, designers, and print production specialists who will give you a product you can be proud of to represent your expertise and enable you to publish for profit.
