Done 4 You Book Publishing Tips (example below)

Done 4 You Tip #1 – Getting Top Results From Your Book Giveaways!

By offering your book for free to your ideal clients, you are speaking to an audience that is ready to listen—and ready to hire a real estate agent. If your offer is good and helps them in their time of need, then they are much more likely to hire you over a competitor who has nothing tangible to offer.

Research proves that free book offers work. We found that you can increase the response of website visitors to take action by over 35% when offering a free book as an incentive.

So, if you don’t have a free book offer on your website, you are missing out on numerous highly motivated clients.

Done 4 You Tip #2 – The 3 crucial steps to take when offering your book online

  • Create a valuable and relevant free offer. Your free book offer should be relevant to your potential clients and really offer something of value. Aim to impress your readers.
  • Target the right audience with your offer. Once you have a great book, you have to get it in front of the right people. Think about your target audience, and then add your free offer on relevant websites, blogs, and social media posts.
  • Don’t forget to add a great a call to action. Make sure your reader feels encouraged to contact you with further questions once they’ve read through your book. After all, you ultimately want your free book to bring in more clients for your business. The most effective offers tell readers what to do next and include a great call to action!

Done 4 You Tip #3 – Give away your book as downloadable e-book chapters or as a physical product

  • Downloadable offers. Make risk-free offers to prospects to request excerpts and sections of your book by filling in a short opt-in form, requiring no physical address or phone number. The form should include fields for a name and email address only. This will allow you to send the file and follow-up emails in the form of a drip campaign and is less intimidating than a longer form.
  • Physical offers. When you offer the book in its physical form, you’ll need an address. To get a free book people will be willing to fill out a longer form that includes name, street address, phone number, and email. The benefit of a longer form is that you will send them the book PLUS you will have their address to send out traditional, snail-mail marketing materials, such as postcards and printed newsletters.

Now that you have contact information, make good use of it. An email drip or direct mail campaign will keep your real estate services on the minds of those who were already interested enough to request your free book offer.

Done 4 You Tip #4 – Get your book read!

How we keep your potential clients reading:

  • Setting up each chapter as a “Secret Revealed” or “Priceless Tip”
  • Including images, graphs, and/or charts
  • Ensuring that it’s error free
  • Breaking up long chapters and paragraphs
  • Talking about them, not you
  • Saving the call to action for the end
  • From title to the final paragraph, your book should reflect your professionalism and dedication to helping your clients.
