Robin’s Riff on How to Write a Book to Get Clients

Robin Colucci

Summary:

A book can be a great tool to grow your business. But one of the most common misconceptions when it comes to writing a book to get clients is that your book is not just a big business card or an extra long sales letter. 

The book should be about your reader (a.k.a your ideal client), and demonstrate, not tell, how you and your business can add value to their lives. If you do this right, your ideal client prospects will come into the sales conversation already set to hire you. 

In episode #128 of The Author’s Corner, Robin explains what a book is not a big business card, and how you can craft it to inspire your ideal client.

 

Key takeaways:

  • Why you should write a book to grow your business, and not to have a business
  • The key role of competency stories
  • Why you should give your ideal reader what they already know they want
  • How to use the book to get clients once it is published
  • And more!
