How To Write A Book Fast!
Now that you know why you want to write a book, let me share a few tips on how to get your expertise book written easily and painlessly.
- Write short 90 min books: These days’ people are busy and they don’t have time to read long boring drawn out books filled with fluff. Short succinct books are popular these days, which makes it easy to write lots of books and position multiple areas of expertise in your niche market quickly.
- Go deep on one topic: One of the strategies I teach my clients is to write books based on existing programs, training, coaching or products that lead them to a free gift in your marketing funnel. Teach them the what in the book, and provide the how in your programs.
- Use a framework: Writing an expertise book is like following a recipe. Keep it simple. Tell them tips, tools, strategies, systems, results or case studies that will move the needle for them and get them some sort of result. People read books to get a transformation or a quick win. Get them that outcome as quick as you can and then guide them to where they can learn more.
