Top 10 Reasons to Write a Book

  1. Instant Credibility: You are not just “Jay Conrad Levinson”, but “Author Jay Conrad Levinson.”
  2. Opens Most Doors: Whether it’s during the writing process (many folks want to be included in a book) or afterwards, the name “Author” carries weight.
  3. The Media Wants to Hear From an Expert: Easy to put your evangelist in front of the press.
  4. Leads Come to You: If you write a good book, it will be passed around and leads will seek you out.
  5. Asked to Speak at Conferences: The author is the one that is asked to speak at conferences and events.
  6. Prospects Ask for Your Brochure and Actively Share it With Others: When else would you hear someone say, can I please have your brochure, I’ll even pay you for it.
  7. Major Retailers Advertise Your Products and Services: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other major retailers give you 3rd party credibility.
  8. It’s Not About How Many Sell: Who cares how many copies sell if you can place your book in the hands of your prospects and they buy your products and services?
  9. Great Gift: What a great way to meet people, place a gift in conference gift bags, send as a present to both your existing customers and new prospects.
  10. Ghost/Collaboratively Written: You can have someone else write it for you or you can ask a bunch of experts to share their stories (e.g. “42 Rules for Driving Success with Books”) which adds credibility while building key relationships.
