9-Step Checklist to go from "Overwhelm" to "Bestselling Book on Amazon"
LEVEL 1: Writing Your Great Book
1. Define All Goals (Author Goals & Reader Goals)
There's no point in going to the trouble writing a book if you don't know how the book will fit into your business, your marketing, and your legacy plans.
There's a magic around books -- like no other medium! -- so make sure you have thought through all the ways you will leverage your 'bestselling author' status and book.
• raise your prices • more media attention (TV, radio, magazine)
• more speaking gigs • bigger impact and legacy
• more podcast interviews • increased confidence
• new brand awareness, leads, and sales (i.e. profit)
I don't believe in putting out self-agrandizing content (aka like a 'bro-douche marketer' ;)) that doesn't bring the market any value. So, it's worth making sure that what you put inside your book will truly help your reader, your audience.
And the good news about this step? Do it well, and your book will naturally turn into more leads and paying clients!
*Our Bestselling Book Accelerator walks you through fun and effective exercises to make sure you cover all your bases on both author and reader goals!
2. Plan the Book's Structure
Make sure your book follows a logical presentation of information to deliver on your author goals (enticing more clients) and reader goals (learning something valuable from you to solve their problem).
Think about how many chapters you want and what will go in each chapter to introduce the audience to that chapter's content, teach them 'the goods,' give them ways to apply it, and be ready for the next chapter!
*In our Bestselling Book Accelerator, we talk about how you can think of your book like a 'veggie burger' where Part 1 and Part 3 are the "buns." They contain your introductory and conclusion material, respectively. The veggie patty in the middle, Part 2, is the core part of the book and delivery of value!
*Hint: It's easiest to write in this order: Part 2, Part 1, and Part 3! Plus, we show you how to work in 'copy inception hacks' to make sure your book attracts new clients like flies to honey!
