“Begin with the end in mind” were famous words (and Habit #2) in Stephen Covey’s best-selling book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. When building authority, you must take Mr. Covey’s advice.

As part of your virtual Authority Marketing Blueprint Day, we will pair you with one of our award-winning Master Book Planners to strategically outline and blueprint your book. Without having to write a single word, you will begin with a 60-minute virtual interview by your Master Book Planner. Conducted virtually in the comfort of your home or office, this initial interview provides your Master Book Planner with deep understanding of you, your business, your target reader, and your vision for your book.

After a week or two of meticulous work, your Master Book Planner will present his/her Master Book Plan via a 60-minute presentation. You and your Master Book Planner will discuss necessary revisions and edits to the book outline. This is one of the most enjoyable parts of the Authority Marketing Blueprint Day! Note: If you already have a manuscript written, in lieu of a Master Book Plan, our Editorial Manager will conduct a formal manuscript review, presenting a 10-15 page detailed review offering creative and objective suggestions to improve your manuscript.

The team there is absolutely amazing.

I benefited a lot from the Authority Marketing Blueprint Day, where they broke down literally everything I did in the business. That was a learning experience in and of itself, but then that parlayed into all kinds of other business ideas. The team there is absolutely amazing. I can’t say enough about how important it is to write the book and be the authority.

...was a phenomenal personal of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done.

We came out of the Blueprint day and one of my colleagues who I was working with at the time said, ‘This is the right thing to do.’ From that first meeting until the time the book came out in May of 2018, was a phenomenal personal experience, getting to work with our writer. The chance to craft and write that story for our audience was one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done.

 It was all about me and how we wanted to do our book...

We started off by doing our Authority Marketing Blueprint Day and Advantage couldn’t have been better at organizing all of my thoughts and all of my goals. It was all about me and how we wanted to do our book, not how they wanted to do it.

Thanks to them and all of their guidance, I own the first two and a half pages on Google for my name.

I attribute so much of the success that I’ve experienced professionally in the last four years to the highly skilled, professional and loving team at Advantage|ForbesBooks. I got to experience this team at an Authority Marketing Blueprint Day. Literally we pounded out my strategy, took the messages from my book, the strategy, the tactics, everywhere from content creation to social media, how to have a website, the name for your website, and how to rank on Google search. Thanks to them and all of their guidance, I own the first two and a half pages on Google for my name. I also became a #1 New Release on Amazon thanks to them. I followed the strategy and tactics that they gave me, implemented it and got the award.

I'm so glad I did the Authority Marketing Blueprint Day, where I talked with the team, not just about my book, but they created a whole business and marketing plan for me. I learned a lot about social media and how to position myself as an authority. It was an amazing experience for me.
