Publishing a book is one of the greatest investments you can make in your career. Whether you’re a business owner or you’re looking to offer your expertise and skills to others, publishing a book will set you apart as an authority in your field.
Set Yourself Apart as a Bestselling Author
Build Your Author Platform
What exactly is an author’s platform? Your author platform consists of your website, blog, social media accounts, and your overall online presence. It also includes events such as speaking gigs or book signings. It’s the image you present to your readers and the public; it’s your brand. You’ll want to create a consistent brand on all platforms (for more information on that click here!) and be active in social media. If you don’t have the time, consider hiring a personal assistant or someone skilled in marketing.
Book Speaking Gigs
Speaking works both ways — you can book a speaking gig by having a published book and it also helps promote your book. In fact, this is a great way to not only promote your book but yourself and the skills you are offering. It’s a positive cycle that will draw in more readers, clients, and thus more speaking gigs. Not sure where to start when it comes to using your book to become a public speaker? We have a great blog post with tips here!
