One of the many benefits of writing a book is that it makes a great foundation for building your platform. Let’s talk about creating a platform for your business. What does this mean?
A platform is your foundation for creating ancillary products based on your content. What income-producing ancillary products can you create based on the content from your book? Lots and lots!
Here are just a few:
- Audio Book
- Coaching Program (Live or Recorded)
- Workshops / Seminars / Events
All of these products can be created based on the content of your book. You simply repurpose them and you now have products you can sell at the back of the room or online via your website and blog.
You can also create an ebook, quickly and simply, that can be listed on Amazon and Kindle. We’ll talk about the difference in formatting your book for Amazon and Kindle in a latter post. The important thing is that all of these products are based on the content of your book.
Having a book can create a whole new dimension to your business online. A published book can attract attention online via your website, blog, links to other websites, press releases, internet radio interviews and pod casts. If you are interested in passive avenues of income, marketing your book and ancillary products online can produce amazing results.
These are just a few reasons why writing a book can be a great experience, produce a phenomenal business tool and create extraordinary results for you.
