Self-publish your book
in 6 stepS
6 simple steps
toward the publication of your book:
from manuscript to published book
As a small business owner, you know that writing a book or e-book helps you to the following:
✔ becoming visible to potential clients
✔ increasing your credibility
✔ demonstrating your skills and knowledge
✔ standing out from the competition
✔ elevating your status to that of an expert
✔ securing speaking engagements
✔ sharing your valuable knowledge and experience with the world
✔ creating a source of passive income
But you’re not sure about the publishing process:
? When is your book good enough to publish?
? Do you need an editor?
? What are the steps to self-publishing your book?
? What else do you need?
? How do you market your book?
Publishing your book can benefit your business in more than one way.
You know this, and you may have started writing your book already.
You’re an expert in what you do for a living but maybe not in book publishing. So, these obstacles may stop you from continuing or even starting your book. It’s not that you give up easily, but you have so many other more pressing things to do and for which the processes are more clearly laid out.
But you realize it would be so good to have that book finished and published!
