You’ve had the idea that you want to write a book for a while. Maybe you’ve written an outline, or even a chapter or two, but then you shelved the project because more “important” things came up. Becoming an author always seemed like a far away dream, and you never really felt pushed to follow through and finish your book. I’m here to tell you that you need to make your book a priority! You need to be publishing your book NOW to make the biggest impact.
SELF PUBLISHING IS STILL GAINING POPULARITY
Here’s the good news: self publishing has never been easier. It’s also rapidly gaining in popularity, which means more and more people are becoming self-published authors. That also means that if you want to stand out from the crowd, you need to publish your book NOW. If you wait, you could wind up being just one in a sea of new authors who are all vying for attention from the same readers.
Do you ever find yourself wishing you had started using Instagram or Pinterest for your business about 10 years ago? Or that you had started blogging in 2005? Getting ahead of the trend means you’ll get the recognition and attention for publishing your book now, and you’ll continue to get it even as self publishing becomes more popular. Instead of just following the trend, you’ll be leading the trend.
BUILD YOUR PLATFORM
If you want to make money from your blog and become an expert in your niche, you need to work to build your platform. This includes your website, your social media channels, and all of the content you create. Having a book will really help elevate your platform as a whole. You’ll be able to describe yourself as an author in addition to all of the amazing things you already do. Plus, having a book gives you almost instant authority, especially when it’s accompanied by testimonials from readers who you’ve helped.
Don’t put off doing something that can really help take your business and blog to the next level! The longer you wait to take the big steps to grow your platform, the longer it will take you to grow your business. You need to show that you’re serious about your business and your niche, and a book is one of the best ways to show your commitment while also showing off your knowledge. Get your book out there NOW so you can reap the benefits of being a published author.
