Give Your Book a Selling Chance Before You Write It, P 3

Aug 17, 2007
Imagine thousands of people buying your book all over the world in the coming year. Furthermore, they love it and write you about how it has helped them. They even email all their friends about your insightful book. Sound far fetched? Believe it; it could happen to you! Keep reading only if you want to give your message the selling chance it deserves.

To start with, every part of your book should be a compelling part of your message. Every part should be written passionately and designed to be a sales tool. Touch your readers' emotion with passion for your topic and you'll sell more books. In fact, when you design your book to include the passion points below, you'll sell more books than you ever imagined.

Passion Point 11 Make your book brief.

Give yourself a break. You don't have to write a 350 page book like your colleague to be successful. It doesn't even have to be 150 pages. Simply write a short book approximately 10-100 pages long and fill it with your insightful information, your expertise and/or your experiences.

Passion Point 12 Write your book the easy way.

Write the solution. Identify 8-10 questions or problems for each chapter. Speed your writing time by simply writing the answers to each problem or question. Include your stories and experiences to add interest to your book.

Passion Point 13 Write your book vision intention.

Oprah Winfrey says, "Writing your intentions down and watching them manifest is one of the most powerful goal setting experiences ever." Write the date your book will be published and the specific outcomes. For example, write down what you will hear, see, and feel now that the book is finished and people are reading it. You'll find it's much easier to envision a finished outcome than it is to keep hoping it might happen.

Passion Point 14 Plan to market your book the easy way.

Create a book marketing plan or revise your old one to include Internet Marketing. Your book marketing plan is what I often describe as your map. It describes your book, what you will do after the book is completed and published. It also describes who you hope to sell your book to (target audience.)

Passion Point 15 Invest in educating yourself about book writing.

If you don't know how to write a book fast, enroll in a book writing mini-course, join a book writing group or purchase a book about writing books. Are you on a shoe-string budget? Subscribe to a book writer's newsletter and receive bite-sized tips.

Passion Point 16 Include your book in your top priorities.

If it doesn't make it into your top plans, it may take years to complete. Set a plan in place including when you write, how much you write and even when you will finish. Make your book a top priority at least 5 days a week and complete sooner.

No matter how good your book is, if you don't use the above simple tips in setting it up you may never sell as many books as your message deserves. Start today. Enthusiasm and passion are contagious. Give your book the best selling chance possible. Fill it with enthusiasm for your topic and sell more than you ever dreamed.
