Do you have real estate knowledge that you wish to share with other investors? Or, would you like to build a passive stream of income with sales of books you’ve authored?
Let’s talk today about five reasons why you should write and publish your book instead of thinking, “Oh, maybe later.”
1. You can get your message out to a lot more people than you ever could through one- on-one work, networking groups, speaking, etc. It’s just really been beneficial to my clients, to have hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands, or even millions of people exposed to you, your message, and your story. A book is just an incredible way, and a very affordable way, to get that message out. Because more people are willing to invest $9.99 or $14.99 in a book than $100 or thousands of dollars in your course, your service, etc.
2. When you write and publish your book instead of just thinking about it, you get to enjoy the reputation and credibility builder of being a published author. Clients have told me that they decided to work with me because they don’t want to keep seeing “Author of…” in everybody else’s bio, especially when they were speaking on live or virtual stages. And writing a book really shows that you’re in the game for the long haul, that you’re not just a one-trick pony. With the pandemic, a lot of people started calling themselves coaches, consultants, and other experts. And we don’t know if some of those people will go back to their day jobs or jump on the next trend. So, writing a book just shows that you’re in the game for the long haul. Your business isn’t something you just decided to do, especially because of the pandemic.
3. You’ll have that sense of accomplishment that I and others have experienced after writing and publishing a book; that feeling is indescribable. Most of the population has not even attempted to write a book. And of the people who try to write a book, less than 5% finish it and publish it.
4. People seek you out a lot more when you have that published book out there. The opportunities include media interviews, speaking gigs, and podcast interviews. Having a new book is a great way to increase urgency among people booking such opportunities because everyone wants to be on top of the news.
5. Waking up to passive income is another benefit of finally writing and publishing your book. While many of my clients make money from new clients that come in through their book and the increased publicity surrounding them, some people that I’ve worked with have made five and even six figures from book sales. It’s great to make money when you sleep, especially with rents, mortgages, and everything throughout the world on the rise.
So, write your book. Don’t just sit around thinking about it and end up on your deathbed wishing that you did it. Just do it. I promise you — especially if you get the right support. It will not be as painful or as difficult as it sounds.
