Why do successful business owners publish books? A book positions you as the expert.

The next step for successful entrepreneurs

If your business has some momentum, getting your book written is a natural next step. Experts have books, and people want to work with the expert. Publishing a book gives you instant credibility. Prospects will never again compare you to the guy down the street. They’ll recognize that you’re in a different category altogether.

Be seen as trustworthy

The credibility boost that a book provides is especially valuable for entrepreneurs in high-trust industries, including financial advisors, attorneys, real estate agents, tax resolution specialists, and CPAs. You will lose clients to your competitors if you fail to convince them you are credible.

Persuade prospects before you meet with them

Publishing a book means prospects get to know you in the low-pressure environment of their own home. They show up to meet you, already persuaded that you’re an expert who can solve their problem. Picture a sales appointment that begins, “I read such-and-such in your book. How can you help me do that?” That’s the powerful credibility you get from a book.

"The book has been an effective credibility tool. People have been more willing just to say 'okay, Dan, what should I do?'"

- Dan Sullivan,
Sullivan Retirement Resources

"It's the best marketing money you could ever spend. There's nothing that gives you the instant credibility of a well thought out book.”

- Brad Pistole,
Trinity Insurance and Financial Solutions

"Folks are immediately convinced when they get the book that they're dealing with an agency that's just head and shoulders above our competitors."

A Book Is a High-Value Lead Magnet that Attracts High-Value Leads

You don’t have a lead problem.
You have a lead magnet problem.

Nobody wants a brochure or “free report” anymore. No one will believe you provide a valuable service if you trick them into opting in for worthless junk.

Do you charge thousands of dollars for your services? Then you need to give away a lead magnet that’s obviously valuable and worth your prospects’ time. A book has high perceived value and will interest your ideal prospects.

Tired of getting few leads because your lead magnet is bland? Change that with a book.

"People hold a lot of value in a book. It's different than a flyer or a business card."

- Mike Davidson,
Parkway Automotive

"I give books away in replacement of business cards. One of the best things you can do for credibility."

- William Waggoner,
Stoney Creek Advisors

"Instead of giving people a flimsy brochure, if you're giving them a book, it's a lot harder to just throw that in the garbage. And every time they look at it, hopefully they remember you."

- John Browning,
Guardian Rock Wealth

How Will Your Book Earn You Money?
A Book Supercharges Your Marketing

As a business owner, you won’t become rich by selling copies of your book for $15 each. But you can make a lot of money by getting your book into the hands of prospects who read it, decide they like you, and spend thousands of dollars on your services.

How does it work, exactly? Here are real-life stories of how a book has worked for our clients:

Reactivate Old Prospects

How many email addresses do you have of prospects who said they were interested, but never bought? Probably hundreds. You need a good reason to get back in touch. Imagine you’ve just published your book and have a box of copies sitting on your desk. You type out a quick email to the ones that got away:

“Hey, I just published my book. I’d love to give you a free copy. Are you interested? Just tell me where to mail it.”

Financial advisor Alynn Godfroy sent that email to her list of 800 inactive leads. The results: 80 people responded. 10 set appointments. Alynn closed enough business from that one email to pay for her book—“Now everything else is gravy.”

Capture Website Leads

Most businesses’ websites are terrible at capturing leads. The Contact Us page has a form to request more information, but who actually fills that out? Only people who are highly motivated and seriously interested. The others—casual visitors, those interested but not ready to commit—leave without a trace.

Fix your website’s lead capture with a book. Put an image of your book’s cover on your homepage with the offer, “Request a Free Preview of My Book’s First Chapter.” Collect names and emails. A few days later, send an automated follow-up email: “How did you like the first chapter of my book? Are you interested in learning more?” A simple message like that can produce conversations and appointments.

Consultant Ryan Weiss put his book on his website and started getting leads—even before his book was published!

Generate Referrals

Referrals are the easiest sales to close. Referred prospects trust the referrer’s endorsement, which gives you a head start. Your book can easily stimulate more referrals, since it’s natural for people to share a book they like with others.

Most clients never refer because it feels awkward and they don’t know how. You can make it simple: Hand two copies of your book to every satisfied client. Explain, “We’ve been glad to work with you. Here are two copies of my book for you to pass along to friends. If you need more, just let me know.”

Mortgage broker Lee Welfel’s book turned real estate agents into referral machines:

“I give my book to my realtor referral partners, and they hand it along to their clients. So people know exactly how the process is going to unfold before they come in and sit down with me. My business has grown drastically.”

Prompt Word of Mouth

Similarly, a book can spread by word of mouth in a way that a brochure never could. For example, financial advisor Michelle Bertram’s sister posted a simple photo of Michelle’s book on social media. Then:

“A friend of my friends saw the post. It must have caught her attention, being a retirement book. She bought it. Then a few days later she emailed and said, ‘I read your book. Would love to set up a time to talk to you.’

“She and her husband became clients after the second meeting. They wanted to implement the financial plan immediately with nearly $600,000 in investable assets. So far we’ve done $550,000 of business with them. They came in within six weeks of the book being out. That client was enough to pay for the book probably 2–3 times over.”

Get People to Respond

Most TV, radio, and online ads make boring offers. Prospects hesitate to share their information unless they’ll receive value in return. Offering your book can persuade people to raise their hand after watching anonymously for a long time.

For example, Brad Pistole is a financial advisor who hosts a weekly radio program. After we published his book Safe Money Matters, he changed his offer from “call in to learn more” to “call in to get a free copy of my book.”

Brad reports the results: “I’ve had this book for six years, going on seven. I work with about 100 clients a year. They all come to me either by referral, because they've read my book, or because they’ve listened to my show.

“I've handed out about 1,100 books. It would be easy to say that 300 of those people became clients. And so if you look at just what my numbers have been in total annuity and life production over the years, and multiply that out by how much commission that is, it would be 30 to 40 times more than what I spent on the book.”

My First Book Saved My Business and Changed My Life

I started a marketing consulting firm after a decade at a nonprofit. Nobody wanted to hire me, because they didn’t think I was credible. It didn’t matter that I had worked in advertising before, or that I had been studying marketing on my own for years. They saw me as a “nonprofit guy,” not a marketing guy.

So I wrote and published my first book, On Marketing. Suddenly everyone wanted to meet with me. I mailed a copy of my book ahead of time. When I walked into the appointment, my book was lying on their desk—dog-eared, highlighted, and underlined. They opened the conversation by asking, “Michael, in your book you say this. How can you help me do that?”

I experienced the power of a book firsthand. I knew that other business owners who deserved to be seen as experts could be helped if they had a book. So I started Paperback Expert to help business owners create, publish, and profit from a book.

"The ROI on the book is off the charts, and will continue to show a return for years to come."

The Credibility Calculator: Measure Your Credibility

How do your prospects see you? Do they look at you as a credible expert, or do you look just like your competitors?

If you look like everyone else, there's no reason for prospects to pick you. So you lose the sale. By increasing your credibility, you'll increase your sales—because prospects will see you differently.

In under 5 minutes, you can discover what you really look like with our free Credibility Calculator, taken by nearly 1,500 business owners.
