Did your book dream slip to the back burner? Did you lose interest in it? Did you get stuck on a part of it and just dropped out?
Do you say, “I just need to…”
- “Do a bit more research on the Internet?”
- “Take another how-to course by phone or Web?”
- “Wait until the rest of my life calms down?”
It’s just “one more thing” that needs to happen before we get started.
Some gurus say the business side of your book is all important.
They are right. If you want to write your short ebook fast, you need to know the pre-marketing skills before you write a single chapter. Too late you say? You already wrote three or four chapters? And you got stuck?
It’s never too late to learn these skills. If only writers would learn from book coaches who really walk the talk, they would not make mistakes with time and money wasted. In ebooks, blog posts, and book coaching you can get the how-to’s to make your book happen.
Benefits of Knowing the 9 Hot-Selling Points:
- Help you write focused, compelling copy, so you can finish your book fast.
- Help you market and promote which you write, so you’re completely ready to make sales the minute you are finished.
- Cut editing time in half so you can finish fast.
Make you book easy to read, cohesive and organized.
- Help you distribute your book to thousands rather than hundreds.
Check and Correct The Essential Hot Selling Points:
1. Do you already know your one preferred audience? Use Judy’s strategy session to create the questions your one audience wants solutions for. And, use Judy’s “Dear Audience Letter” from her book.
2. Did you create a book title that tells readers the benefits and uses long-tail keywords, so your readers can find you quickly? Use Judy’s Report “How to Write a Book Title that Sells.”
3. Create a cover that your book audience can’t resist.
4. Write a short introduction (1/2 page) in Five Steps.
5. Create your table of contents from your chapter titles.
6. Know the difference between benefits and features. Study Judy’s report at her blog.
7. Write a 60 second “tell and sell” when you only have a few seconds to impress your potential readers. Good for websites, books and services.
Take a Reality Check
- There will always be more research to do.
- There will always be another seminar or book to read.
- Work is never going to calm down.
Judy Advises, “Get Ready, Fire and Aim.”
Jump right in. Do it. You’ll be amazed of your progress when you don’t let perfectionism or procrastination hold you back.
Are you tempted to wait until it’s all just right?
Maybe you’re bogged down with planning – your high school approach to your book’s outline, for instance. Long, boring, rotten?
Be “Green and growing” and find the solutions you need from one who has blazed the trail before you. Instead of an outline, think from your readers’ point of view. What do they want? They want specific solutions to their challenges. So, take a long look at your writing approach, and give your audience what they need and crave.
Surprise! You don’t need to know it all before you start writing your book.
Unknowns come along for us all. Just as a client was about to start writing his book, his computer broke down. Frustrated, but not dead in the water, I asked him, “What are you going to do to solve this?” It turned out he borrowed a computer. So, if you get bogged down, get to a solution fast.
