1: Becoming an author adds credibility (+ several other things)!

The first way that becoming an author can help your business is by adding more credibility to yourself as an expert in your business field—whatever field your entrepreneurial skills happen to lie in.

Becoming an author can help your business because adds prestige to your life and your business.

It also gives you bragging rights and allows you to truthfully say, “I am an author!”

Becoming an author can help your business in other ways, too. It can lead to other opportunities, such as creating more books, having book signings, and even creating courses based on your books, which will help you earn more money!

2: Becoming an author will help your business because you will earn extra passive income by selling your books and/or e-books!

There are three types of income: portfolio income, active income, and passive income.

Portfolio income is income from investments, dividends, interest, and capital gains.

Active income is generally defined as income earned from selling a service.

Passive income is defined as money you can earn on an ongoing basis that doesn’t require any effort except for the initial work, such as rental income, affiliate income, or book/e-book royalties.

It’s always nice to receive an email notification saying that a deposit has been made into your account! If you become an author, this will definitely help your business profits skyrocket!

3: If you don’t publish a book, you are missing out on a huge market, so becoming an author will help your business reach new customers!

A lot of people are on Amazon as readers, not as consumers of your product or your services, but you can easily convert them to consumers if you publish and sell an e-book.

Why and how?

As a business owner, you are probably already on social media (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.) and you already have a bunch of people on your email list… so you are already reaching a ton of people. That’s great, but you still aren’t reaching the Amazon audience.

There are millions of people on Amazon who are readers. They like digesting stories and learning new information. (People buy books for many reasons.) If you don’t have a book to sell on there, you’re missing out!

If you publish a book that is based on something related to your business, then you can put it on Amazon and tap into that market. You can use your e-book as a funnel to take those readers from Amazon and funnel them to your website to your products, to your services, or to whatever it is that you’re offering! How? Just include some hyperlinks in your e-book and entice readers to click on them!

Amazon will even help you make sales! If you’ve ever bought anything from Amazon, you already know that Amazon recommends certain products by saying, “People who bought this also bought…”

Clearly, Amazon is THE way to go if you want to earn some extra cash and tap into a new market! Becoming an author can help your business become more profitable! Read More

Why Evaluate Your Business? (+ WHAT to Look At)

Why Evaluate Your Business? (+ WHAT to Look At)

A business evaluation can provide you with valuable insight as to how your business is making money and how you’re spending it. Taking a closer look at your finances can reveal things you never knew about your company’s finances, and where you need to plug potential holes in your expenses.

Here are 5 things you should evaluate when performing your business evaluation.

Business Evaluation Component #1: Employee Performance

Labor is probably the biggest expense for your business, and if your employees aren’t measuring up to certain standards, you’re throwing away your money. As business owners, we set standards to ensure that we’re paying employees fair wages, based on what they can do and how well they perform in their areas of expertise. If employees aren’t measuring up, it’s time to take a look at how this really impacts your finances.

Let’s say you’re paying someone $50,000 per year for a high-level job that requires a lot of work. This employee has continuously failed to meet goals throughout the year, causing other employees to have to pick up the slack and help do their job. Not only is this detrimental to the cost of keeping this employee on the payroll, but it can cause serious frustration and extra work for other employees.

If someone on the payroll isn’t measuring up, perform a review twice a year and give them goals to reach. If they continuously fail to meet those goals, it may be time to consider seeking out a new person to fill that position.

Additionally, because blogging can help your business thrive, you should be sure to hire bloggers who can create compelling content for you on a regular basis. This will help boost your brand’s visibility online as well as help you rank in the search engines. Read More
