When you already recognize the advantages of a collaboration book then it’s time to work on your chapter.  Since you will use the book as a marketing tool to promote yourself or your business, your topic should be related to your niche. This way, you will not only share your expertise to the world, you are also marketing for yourself or your business.

To put the collaboration book to good use for marketing, your topic should present your ideas, your business, and its offerings. The consumers today are already enlightened. They now have a standard when it comes to buying products or hiring services from companies. What they want are companies that show innovation, substance, reliability, and value. It’s not easy to fool them with fabulous marketing slogans.

Today’s consumers take time to research and compare products, services, and companies to learn their options. They read reviews and testimonials to collect opinions or sample products to determine the best ones for them. With the abundance of information, it’s easy for your business to go unnoticed among competitions. To avoid that fate, you need to be discovered, and writing a book could help you do that.

As a business owner who knows that writing a collaboration book is the right marketing strategy then, you should be the one to write it. Yet, if you are not confident that you have the writing skills to put your ideas into paper then, hire a ghostwriter. What’s important is that, it’s your ideas and knowledge that will be put into writing, not others.

So, what contents should you include in your chapter?

People want to work with an expert on their niche. They want to know how you can help their business. What challenges did you encounter growing your own business, how did you to overcome them, and so on. Thus, your chapter should let the readers learn that you know what you’re talking about. If you fear that you will be giving-away your secrets, it doesn’t have to be that way. You can still write your chapter in a collaboration book and prove your expertise without revealing all.

Things to Write About in Your Chapter

  • Description of your business’ history such as its failures and successes.
  • History behind strategic decisions and creation of ideas.
  • Insight about powerful people behind top companies.
  • Explanation on the importance of your business offerings to the readers’ markets.

Writing a good chapter that would get your readers’ interest will help you gain the following benefits:

  1. Establish your business’ brand.
  2. Achieve favorable media coverage.
  3. Directly communicate with your customers.
  4. Acquire speaking gigs.
  5. Encourage new business opportunities.
