Why Should You Publish a Book?

More and more industry professionals are turning to publishing books to share their knowledge. They are promoting themselves, gaining new business, and building credibility within their industry all with one book. With more publishing resources becoming available online, professionals are finding that it’s easier than they thought to have their book published. There is no reason to delay writing your own book any longer. You already have the knowledge. Publishing a book could boost your business to a new level and be a key move in your career.

There are many benefits to publishing a book. For starters, it provides you with a passive income. Publishing a book is a way of continuously earning money off of your knowledge and experience in a way that lets you showcase your intelligence without sounding like you are bragging. Once you complete one book, you can continue to earn a passive income with a good marketing plan. The brilliant part is that there is always going to be an audience for your book. All you have to do is refresh that marketing plan every so often. When you see book sales stagnant or falling, use a new marketing strategy to promote it and reel in a new audience. When you publish a book, you will have a tool that you can use for years to come.

More importantly, publishing a book is a way to establish yourself in your field of work. You can’t write a book without having a lot of knowledge to back you up. All of those years of hard work and experience will pay off when you are able to help others through your experience. Sharing your knowledge and wisdom with a large audience helps you establish your credibility and authority. When readers see you as an author, they see you as an expert in your field. Having that level of credibility will open new doors for you and your business. People will want to work with you, because of the perception that you’re the best at what you do. No matter what you use your book for, your level of authority on the subject will increase once people see your name in print.

Publishing a book can seem like a daunting task and that’s understandable. There is a lot of work that goes into the process. In truth, I tell my ghostwriting clients that they should expect to read their first draft in at least two months. A book needs to be outlined, scenes constructed, and chapters planned out even before the writing phase begins. I’ve seen this process take hundreds of hours, although for most entrepreneurs, the process takes about forty.  Writing is a huge time commitment as well, and there’s editing, proofreading, and revisions to be done afterward. That’s why publishing a book is a long process.

But it’s a process that’s very rewarding. There really isn’t an easier (or faster) way to build authority, especially if you’re marketing in a crowded niche. Blogging helps you to establish authority, especially if you’re posting relevant, insightful blog posts. But nothing says “expert? quite like having published a book. The ROI is incredible, and the passive income is a nice bonus.
