10 No-Hype, Non-Sleazy, Real-World Reasons to Write A Business Book This Year

  • A book positions you as a go-to expert in your industry
  • A book is the new business card
  • Writing a book can give you a leg up on your competition
  • Every business needs a book
  • Writing a book is easier than ever these days — anyone can do it now, so why not you?
  • If audience members (particularly new members) are consistently asking you the same questions and bringing up the same problems over time…
  • If audience members tend to get stuck on the same places in your system or process, or struggle to implement that system or process in the same ways…
  • If audience members want to get to know you better before they start working with you (especially if you’re a premium service provider)…
  • If audience members tell you about books other people in your industry have written (either in a positive or negative way)…
  • It encapsulates your system or process in a bite-size, easily accessible resource
  • It lends credibility to that system, since people tend to trust what they read in books — and things that have books written about them
  • It’s easily to distribute and disseminate widely
  • It’s a great gateway to other forms of visibility such as podcast interviews and media appearances
  • And even if you don’t have a large audience or a broad reach at the moment, a book can help you grow that audience and reach over time
