How to Write a Business Book

Start this course

Every entrepreneur or business owner thinks about writing a book at some point. Books are "the new business card," a great way to position yourself (and your business) as a thought leader in your space. Plus, since you have all the knowledge already, writing the book should be pretty easy, right?

Wrong. Writing a business book takes more than just dumping everything you know bout your industry on a page. It takes discipline, structure, and an ongoing reflexion as to the goals and target markets for your book. In this course, Alison Jones — a publishing partner for businesses and organizations — will teach you how to approach the writing of your first book, from the idea itself down to the day-to-day writing routine you should adopt.

What you'll learn in this course:

  • How to identify your target market and what they're looking for in a book
  • How to outline and structure your book
  • The most important question to ask yourself before you start writing
  • How to set goals that will keep you going instead of overwhelming you
  • How to build a network as you write
