Publish a book, make an impression

What is 6 inches by 9 inches, weighs roughly one pound and is giving an increasing number of business leaders an advantage over their competition? A book!

The expansion in the popularity of indie book publishing, sometimes referred to as self-publishing, is opening a whole new avenue for businesses to reach new customers. Many successful businesspeople have begun to use a self-published book as their business card. This has unlocked a powerful marketing resource. Indeed, authoring a book establishes the business owner as an expert and showcases the business as a credible and successful enterprise. By publishing a book, seasoned experts and professionals can showcase their knowledge and create a calling card that is sure to make a big impression.

Learn how to self-publish your own book at our seminar during Small Business Week.
