Big Bold Business Book Cover

U.S. business owners, this book is for you:

“Big Bold Business Advice from 50 U.S. Business Owners: Practical Pointers, Solutions, and Strategies for Business Success” After publication of the award-winning first volume of the Big Bold Business book, we have had inquires about when the next volume will be published. Apparently, business owners have lots of valuable business advice and insight to share. In fact, several contributing authors from Volume 1 have already agreed to write chapters for the next volume.

Most business owners will agree that writing and publishing a book is one of the best ways to become a recognized authority in their field.

  • It’s no secret that writing and publishing a book is one of the most powerful ways to showcase your knowledge and know-how and get increased visibility for you and your business.
  • In fact, business owners with books under their belts establish themselves as experts… gain more prestige… and charge higher fees than their competitors.
  • Even as social media explodes and electronic communication is the key to staying connected… nothing is more impressive than handing a client… a prospect… a friend or family member a copy of a book that includes valuable business advice from you.

But… writing and self-publishing a book is time-consuming… even for skilled writers and for those who keep up with the never-ending changes in the publishing industry.

The solution? Write one 1,000-word chapter

The beauty of writing only one 1,000-word chapter… is that you become a contributing author… FAST! More important, the only thing you have to focus on is writing your chapter. Everything else is taken care of. Best of all… you’ll have 49 other contributing authors promoting you and your business every time they sell or give away a copy of the book. That’s right—49 other contributing authors either blogging, tweeting, posting, or spreading the word about the book to their circles of influence. You get introduced to new audiences by writing just one 1,000-word chapter. Where else can you get such widespread exposure without spending a fortune?

You own the copyright to your chapter, so you can continue to use it to promote your business again and again.

  • To increase your credibility, you can send electronic or hard copies of your chapter to prospects and customers.
  • To drive traffic to your website or store and build a list of interested prospects, you can… turn your chapter into articles and then submit them to e-zine directories, turn your chapter into several blog posts, or record your chapter and use it as a bonus download to sell other products and services.
  • To grow your customer list, you can strategically place your chapter in e-zines or blogs that offer different products or services, yet target the same audience.

As a contributing author, you benefit from Big Bold Business marketing tools and opportunities and gain more visibility for you and your business. Here are a few of the benefits…

  • A pdf file of your chapter as it appears in the book.
  • A background sheet about the book for regional and national media.
  • Press release announcements to send to your local media and post on your website.
  • A marketing tip sheet for authors.
  • Speaking opportunities.
  • Invitations to participate in webinars and panel discussions.
  • Book signings and more!
