THE BEST WAY TO TELL YOUR STORY
Share Your Message & Grow Your Audience
If you’ve been in the online business space for even a short amount of time, you’ve probably heard someone say that the best way to spread an idea or message is with a book.
And it’s true. A book lets you put the most essential stuff all in one place. It's a visible, tangible way to tell your story, one that will continue to live on the shelf even long after it’s been read.
It’s also an incredible way to establish yourself as an authority in your field or niche. A book demonstrates your dedication and strength in refining your message, and in seeing a huge project through to the end.
And yes, writing and publishing a book can also create new revenue streams for you, not just from the book itself, but by leading customers to the products and services you offer.
Here at SPI we’ve supported Pat in self-publishing not one, not two, but three books: Let Go, Will It Fly?, and Superfans. Through the success of these books, we know how valuable it is for you and your brand to have a published book with your name on it as the author.
The benefits of publishing your own book can be huge. But the task of actually writing and getting your book out into the world? That can seem daunting, especially for first-time authors.
That’s where we come in.
