7 Reasons Business Owners Should Write a Book

Business owners often entertain several marketing ideas and strategies to increase competitive advantage and online exposure. Questions arise like, Should I start a podcast? Write press releases? Host weekly webinars? Or, perhaps write a book? I find many of my clients write and publish a book as a way to build a brand, attract clients and, thereby, increase revenue. Case in point, one of my clients wrote 3 books in The Book Funnel program. He’s a tech guy who owns a […]

[PDF] This private experiment blew my mind

  Earlier this year, my friend Marisa Murgatroyd ran a private experiment to create and sell a “new” kind of info product and got some absolutely CRAZY results which I’ll tell you about in a sec.

Don’t Use a Ghostwriter: 5 Reasons You Should Write Your Own Book

Transparency. In a world where transparency and openness reigns, the use of a ghostwriter can have negative connotations. This gives rise to the trend of co-authorships or celebrities who acknowledge and give credit to the writer of the book by including their name in the author byline. (The word “ghostwriter” signifies that the actual writer is not disclosed—both the author and the writer agree to keep the fact that a ghostwriter was used a secret.) The […]

5 Crucial Questions a “New-School” Business Plan Will Answer to MAXIMIZE SALES and INCREASE COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE

Business planning as most know it is out-of-date. The practice of prescribing every detail of your plan for success is “old-school.” You must get new products to market fast and be quick to change based on customer feedback. But you can’t stand in front of the sharks – be they customer, investors or employees — with a plan that says “Let’s just throw our product over the wall to customers and see how they respond.” […]
