Today, over 81% of Americans want to write a book. Whether they are looking to share their life story, build their brand, or share their expertise – there is something about being a published author that appeals to the vast majority of Americans. Despite its vast appeal, writing a book is easier said than done – especially if you want it to succeed. That’s why it often pays to have an expert on your side.
Tyler, founder of Authors Unite, first realized the power of writing a book when he published his book “Conference Crushing.” In this book, he shares tips for making meaningful connections at conferences and how to grow your network. The book became a bestseller and changed the course of his life. He realized that he could help others to do the same thing. “I wanted to help others to find success like I did, so I started to put together the idea of Authors Unite.” The idea was that he would create a company that would help aspiring authors with every step of the book writing process.
Writing Your Book
Authors Unite is more of a community than a company. While there are plenty of book publishers, coaches, writers, and editors in the world, there aren’t many places where you can find them all in the same place. Whether you need coaching to finish your book, an editor to put the finishing touches or you want someone to write your entire book for you, Authors Unite has a team of the best writers and coaches to help its clients write a bestselling book.
Marketing Your Book
Nothing beats the thrill of completing your first book, but then what? Your book isn’t going to generate very many sales unless you have a big following or have a lot of money to spend on celebrity endorsements or something like that. At that point, you’ll spend all the money that you hope to make just finding a way to get your book to the masses. That’s why Authors Unite offers a variety of marketing services. “We have built connections with speakers, companies, PR agencies and other news outlets to help spread the word about our authors.” By leveraging these connections and finding creative ways to gain attention for their clients, Wagner’s team is able to consistently generate sales for their books.
Planning Your Business
There are two realities that authors must embrace. The first is that most authors will not make a fortune from writing their books. While this is certainly something that marketing can help overcome, most authors will not become the next J.K. Rowling or Stephen King and acquire a billion dollar fortune from their books.That leads to the next reality. Most authors don’t know what to do after writing a book. This is where Authors Unite comes in. Prior to releasing a book, Wagner and his team will create a strategy for their clients based on their goals. If you are looking to build your brand as an author, promote your business, or go on tour as a speaker, his team will teach you how to make that dream a reality.
Turning Dreams Into Reality
At the end of the day, Wagner and his team at Authors Unite have one goal – to help authors become profitable and maximize their impact. Wagner realized that when he shared his first book, it unlocked a world of potential for him. A world in which he could help others to share messages of hope, inspiration and knowledge. “We believe by helping authors succeed, we help the world succeed.” Authors Unite is dedicated to helping its clients find that success. Christopher Kai, a successful keynote speaker had this to say. “After Tyler launched my book to bestseller, I landed my first $30,000 keynote speech. I could not have done this without Tyler’s help. If you’re looking for a team that can help you write, publish, and market your book… Authors Unite is it.” You can keep up with Tyler Wagner via Instagram and contact his agency for a free book consultation at their website.
