“Is It Really That Helpful to Become a Published Author?”
Hi there, Dori Soukup, with another Question of the Week. This week’s question came to us from Maggie from North Carolina.
Maggie says, “I watched your webinar on how to Become An Influencer.”
By the way, you can watch that on the Free InSPAration page on InSPArationManagement.com.
“In it, you talked about writing a book. Is it really that helpful to become a published author? And how can I do that when I work full time?”
Good question. Thank you for asking it. The thing is, all of us almost work full time. But it’s all about how much you want to be a published author because then you will find the time. You’ll use my method of time blocking and you start blocking some time. I have a better answer for you than that.
We work with many medi spa owners, physicians, nurse practitioners and entrepreneurs who own a business. Since you watched the webinar about Being An Influencer, you know in it I talk about how to attract people to you by being an influencer yourself. The best way to do that is by improving your positioning. What a better way to improve your positioning than to have author right next to your name or your resume. Or, if somebody comes to your website and they see that you’ve written a book.
I’ve written three books. I just published my third book called, “How To Make Million$ With Your Medical Spa.” I’m a very busy person. I do over 100,000 miles of flying a year. I’m working on my second million-miler with Delta. So, I work. I’m busy.
But yet I found the time to publish a book. And not just me. We have so many clients. These are our newest published authors, Jeff and Stephanie. They just published a book called “Master Injector.” They did an amazing job. If they can do it, so can you.
Let me tell you how we can help you. Maybe you have not found out about BecomePublished.com. If not, you need to go and visit that site. You’ll see a seminar that we host where we Write A Book In One Weekend. Of course, you’re not going to have it completely done in one weekend. But we’re going to get the content down in one weekend.
I have an entire process that I take you through to become a published author. Depending on how fast you want to move, you can be a published author within a couple of months after that weekend we spent together. Then we design your front cover and your back cover. We list it on Amazon.
Then I show you how to market yourself, how to become that true influencer on the site and other social media platforms. I show you how to get media interviews so you can help your positioning and become that expert, become that go-to person within your community.
Is it worth it? 1,000%! When I published my first book, my business went on steroids. It keeps growing more and more and more. My company grew by 52% last year. Part of it is all because of positioning. Positioning is so important. When people see that you are the expert, they’re going to be drawn to you and they’re going to want to come and spend money with you.
It’s an important part of your marketing mix. Now, is it everything? No. But it definitely is a big chunk of positioning for you and your business. We have helped over 100 people become published authors. If they can do it — and again, they’re all busy individuals and are not just sitting around — if I can do it, so can you. Go check it out: BecomePublished.com. See how you too can become a published author.
If you want more information, give my team a call or set up a strategic session. You can get that from the website. Just click on it. See what you would like to improve on your business. We can help guide you and show you the best way to do it.
Thank you so much for your question. If you have a question, make sure you email me at Dori@InSPArationManagement.com so I can answer your question too.
Until next time, let’s become published authors!
Until next time, stay inspired!
