9/28/12: The Writing Edge for Business Writers

Sep 28, 2012 | Better Writing

You’re a businessperson. You may not think of yourself as a writer, but you know that writing well can boost your results and your career. Naturally, you want to do better. Here are some recent blog posts and articles that might help.

This week I’m pointing you to pieces on reasons why you should write a book, writing for your customers, and common self-publishing fears. There’s also a pointer to a free e-book about blogging.

From Michael Hyatt: 5 Reasons You Should Seriously Consider Writing a Book
“Have you ever thought about writing a book? If you are like 61.5 percent of my readers, you probably have. But even if you haven’t, I urge you to consider it.”

From Laura Roeder: Write For Your Customers, Not Your Peers
“Think about your last ten clients. Did they hire you because they have the same level of knowledge and experience that you do? Or did they choose to work with you because of your expertise?”

From Ali Luke: How to Beat 7 Common Self-Publishing Fears
“Maybe you’ve watched other bloggers launch their ebooks, and you want to do the same — but something’s holding you back.”
