Why you would write a book for online business
The negatives must also be mentioned for balance. There is a belief that because there is so much information online, people are not that into books anymore. Let’s look at the Amazon sales to reconsider this belief and you be the judge.
Go to www.amazon.com and choose Kindle and just to be inspired choose a Best Seller category. Scroll to Product Category and you’ll see the Page Rank is #1. This is the best and the higher the number the lower the book sales. To know how books are selling, Amazon gives them a sales rank number. This figure changes all the time and is updated hourly by Amazon using their guarded algorithm.

As a professional, or with a personal journey to share, you are an Expert and have a place in the vast self-publishing empire. Writing a book is easy. Writing an excellent book is harder. If it were really easy, we’d all be authors earning a 5 figure monthly passive income from our book sales. If you love research and writing, self-publishing will provide hours of satisfaction and revenue.
Before you sigh, thinking a book a book would be an online strategy you would like to pursue but don’t have the time or skill, then there are “done for you,” writers and publishers. With these services, you can have your book finished in a matter of months rather than a year or two.
These services generally interview you, once, twice even more and then write the book for you according to your book structure and logic. T
hey also arrange for the book to be designed, create the cover, launch, and market the book. All this happens with you by their side providing input every step of the way. If you have a few thousand dollars to invest in your business but no time to write this could be worth considering.
