If you’ve considered writing and publishing a book but haven’t figure out what to write about, how to go about writing it, or have delayed getting started, I’d like to encourage you to write your book in 2020. If you’re not sure about the benefits of being the author of a nonfiction book, allow me to point out six clear benefits to being a nonfiction book author.
- Create a passive income stream – First on the list is to create a passive income stream. If you publish a Kindle book on Amazon and sell 1,000 copies at $2.99 each, you’ll keep 70 percent of that, or about $2.03 per sale. That would be an income of $2,093, and if you do that every month, that’s a nice side income. If you publish a print book and sell it for $12.99 per copy, you’ll still net 70 percent so your income will be $9,093 on 1,000 sales.
- A book makes you an authority – The root word for “authority” is “author.” That’s no accident. As soon as you publish a book with your name on the cover, you’ll become an instant authority. Everyone who reads your book will consider you an expert in your field, as long as the information you provide is expert-level information. The best and most direct route to being viewed as an authority is to write a book about a subject on which you are a proven expert.
- It makes a great calling card – Published authors everywhere realize that a book makes a great calling card. Whether you are a public speaker, a podcaster, or a professional with a specific expertise, if you publish a book on the topics you talk about and in a professional area that you practice, you’ll have a nice calling card that presents you as the professional you are.
- A book enhances your message – Public speakers, YouTubers, podcasters, and professionals of all stripes can enhance their message with a book. There’s no better way to reinforce your message with your audience.
- It promotes your business – Doctors, lawyers, executives, and professionals from all subject areas can use a book to promote their businesses. From sous chefs to auto mechanics, whatever kind of business you own can be promoted with a book.
- A book makes a great lead magnet – Looking to generate leads for your business? Write and publish a book. It doesn’t matter if your business is an internet business or a brick-and-mortar business, a book is another type of business promotion. You can sell your print book in your brick-and-mortar business, or you can sell both your print book and your e-book on your website. Wherever you go and meet people, carry your book with you. Give it to your prospects, sell it, or find a way to get it into the hands of your qualified leads and they’ll be eating out of your hands.
Virtually everyone has a specialized knowledge. With these six benefits of book authorship, there is no excuse for not writing your book. Whether you want the passive income, the respect and prestige that comes with authorship, or you want to generate leads for your business, writing a book has huge benefits. In fact, I wrote a book just to prove this point.
