Dr. Shawn Jones' Book Named Health IT Book Of The Month

"I’ve been interviewed by multiple media outlets and the book has been named ‘Health IT Book of the Month’ and was recently named an Amazon bestseller in Organizational Psychology. Additionally, I’ve been named the Medical Director for Provider Wellness for the largest not-for-profit hospital system in Kentucky. I don’t believe any of this would have been possible, had I not written the book and then enlisted the incredible expertise of my Advantage team." Read More

Matt Zagula Uses Advantage to Make His Message Neat and Concise

"Life after the book gets you into the position of understanding all of the little steps that are required to deliver your content in a very concise and neat package. What I loved about my experience with ForbesBooks and the folks over at Advantage was the fact that they had systems and processes in place that took you by the hand and showed you how to build that content in the most compelling and moving way. For that, I’m a huge advocate for the folks over at ForbesBooks and Advantage. If you are considering it, this will elevate you in your profession, it will make you the expert in your field. If you are considering it, stop and just do it." Read More

Buddy Teaster Gains New Partners For His Non-Profit By Giving Them His Book

"In fact, recently, a big, multi-national company that we were working with in Asia, really couldn’t find the key to unlock the door. I gave the CEO a copy of my book, he read the book, came back after the weekend and said, ‘We’re going to do this.’ In ways that have gone far beyond our expectations. The process and having the physical book in our hands that we can give to people has changed the way that we tell our story and how people see us. The ROI is really easy for us to identify. It’s something that we value far beyond what shows up on an income statement. We would recommend it to anybody." Read More

Vincent Battaglia Uses His Book To Lobby In Washington, DC

"Having this book, it’s created a confidence in me that I am the expert in this evolving industry. It has garnered me more interviews and more platforms in which to get the renewable message that Renova has at its core and in my purpose to a much, much broader audience. This is my calling card. This has then influenced the business by bringing more attention, meaning more business. There has absolutely been an uptick in our business, meaning its installation in solar batteries since my publication of the book. We are about a $42-million-a-year in revenue company, making us one of the largest of the 11,000 solar companies in the United States. We’re in the top 50. I can honestly say that without the help of Cut The Cord and the great people at Advantage that Renova would not be in the pull position that it is in." Read More

Why Cathy Hung Picked Hybrid Publishing Over Traditional Publishing

"I was beginning the plan to write a book about cultural competency for healthcare professionals. As you know, professionals are busy, so traditional publishing was not really an option for me. I did not want to wait one to two years before I had my book. I was introduced to the concept of hybrid publishing. I went to Charleston for 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. Now that the book is published and available, the American Dental Association publishing department wants to purchase my books and feature under the ADA website/e-catalog for members. This is huge as the exposure will be tremendous. They like my book and feel that it is a very important topic." Read More

“Don’t wait. Do it sooner rather than later. There is nothing more powerful than being able to drop off a book and hand that to your prospects. Advantage really makes the process easy, even for people who don’t like to write. In my mind, being able to persuade people with the written word when you are doing marketing that is based on educating the people you are talking with and doing it in a book format, I don’t know of any better way to establish credibility with your marketplace than writing a book.” Read More

I probably met about two dozen people from Advantage, so you get to meet the people who are going to be standing behind you as you’re working through this project. I also met with Adam while I was there. He greeted me and knew what my project was. He was pretty excited about what was going on.

Andy Bailey Says Book Is His Company's #1 Marketing Tool

“I got to see Adam Witty speak and deliver his message a couple of years ago at a Gazelles Summit. I immediately attached myself to Adam and said, ‘How do I get my own book?’ He walked me through that process. It was very simple. Took a little bit of time, six to eight months, to get things down, another six months to actually get it published, but the book is all about being the authority in your field. To date, we’ve given out and sold a few of these books. Somewhere close to 10,000 of them. We use them in our sales and marketing process. Any time we get a new lead who is interested in learning more about coaching, we send them a copy of this book in a really nice box. We put a little bit of extra marketing around the book itself. These go out to our candidates, people who have raised their hand. It tells our story extremely well. The #1 marketing tool that we have is our book. It could be yours as well!” Read More
