There are a thousand different reasons to write a book:
- You might be writing it for your heart—because you just have to.
- You might be writing it for your art—creative expression in action.
- You might be writing it for your clients—so you can hand them all your wisdom in one nifty package.
- And you might be writing it for your pocketbook—in hopes of selling a whole lot of copies.
If you’re in that very last camp—or some combination of the above—there’s one piece of advice I really need to give you.
I shake my head every day at writers who think they’re going to sell tons of copies of their book without thinking about this.
You’d think it would be super obvious, but I’m here to tell you it’s not!
This applies only to writers of practical nonfiction, btw. Novelists, historians, children’s book writers and poets need not follow this rule!
But if you’re writing a book you serve to help other people—and you want to actually sell copies in the world—you quite literally must apply this wisdom.
This one small shift of focus is HUGE because it’s:
- The #1 reason people purchase transformational nonfiction books
- How to get people who don’t already know you to buy your book
- The key to getting people to recommend your book to their friends
The tip is super simple, but you’d be surprised how many aspiring authors miss the boat on it completely. I don’t want you to be one of them! Watch the video now!
