State Your Opinion
If you have a strong opinion writing a Kindle Book is a GREAT way to express it.
Do you feel strongly about world events? Frustrated with local politics? At wits end with the educational system? Believe there is more that people can do about their health than they realize? Tired of feeling at the mercy of the healthcare system?
Any one of these areas carry strong opinions, some fact and lots of room for improvement.
Many people want to be part of the solution to so many challenges going on in life today. Yet, they stand by the wayside and do nothing. Nothing but say, “If only I could do something.”
You can. It’s called writing books. Yup! Write books.
My Last Kindle Book
I wrote my last Kindle Book, Power Up Your Sales, to share step by step insights on how to build your business through presentations. It’s based on lots of solid experience. You can access a copy FREE. Click here.
Of course, there are plenty of other things you can do to get your opinion out to market. You can blog, write articles, start a podcast show, comment on other people’s posts or shoot short videos.
All of these have an impact (when done correctly) yet, books raise the bar beyond a short video, a tweet or Facebook wall post. Again, everything can have an impact, but if you’re looking for long-term strategies, books are it.
In days’ past, it was a lot more difficult to get a book to market than it is today. The costs were prohibitive as was the process of getting published.
Today, with options like Kindle, it’s simply a matter of writing the book, having it edited (yes, it is recommended to have your books edited even if you are a strong writer) and then uploading to Kindle.
Do You Have an Opinion? Write a Kindle Book
Everyone has an opinion. Some have bigger opinions than others.
Some state their opinion as fact and the only truth there is, while others see their opinion as one of many.
A great many books that are written are based on one’s opinion more than hard and fast facts. For example, I’m currently reading Thank and Grow Rich. Sure, there’s fact in the book, but author Pam Grout expresses her opinion based on her experience of how outrageous gratitude literally changes our experience.
I tend to agree with her. Thus, I’m finding the book an easy and fun read, but truth be told, it is opinion.
Before she could get thousands upon thousands of people to read her opinion, she had to get the book done.
Imagine what it will feel like when dozens, hundreds, even thousands of people download your book.
However, it takes more than simply putting your book up on Kindle for it to reach your intended market.
There are steps you need to take to assure you get the greatest result.
