Why Write A Book - Leveraging Your Business - Guest Post

by Yvonne Russell on July 24th, 2008

By Bob Turek

My books are business books. Check out my web site. Once you get there, notice some of the things you can do: write a blog, link to my blog on b5media www.projectmanagement411.com , list and sell your books.

I wrote my first one based on an Innovation Award winning software solution for manufacturer’s called Rapid Priority Management. The purpose at the time was to provide a business case, training and implementation suggestion book that could be used in sales cycles for the software.

My second book was about a very innovative approach to selling called Value Selling. This book was as much a education experience for me as it was a book for others to experience what I had done- i.e., I put together a standardized approach based on several selling campaigns I had been involved in. I constantly refer to it to make sure I’m doing the correct steps in a sales cycle.

My third book was a compilation of articles I had done that were directed at C-level executives. The article writing started about 20 years ago and preceded my book writing. What I saw was an opportunity to group the articles into categories and present them in a valuable way.

Bottom line - article and book writing have always been a very pleasurable experience for me. There are definitely difficult points but the end result - seeing your book on-line with you as the author is very satisfying.
