The key to success in real estate or book writing is the same. Marketing is the key!
Marketing is something we all must do if we want people to know what we have for sale or how our product will benefit them.
When I was running a real estate office, my agents were often hesitant to market themselves as professionals. They thought people would think they were bragging about themselves if they shared their designations or awards. How will people know what you bring to the table if you don't tell them or show them? It is not bragging to market your work.
The same is with book writing. I meet authors every day who do not or cannot market themselves or their work. Many have wonderful books. Their writing is excellent, their creative processes top of the line, and yet they have few sales because they fail to market.
If you want to be successful, learn how to show the world what you do, and why you do it better than anyone else! Don't be afraid to MARKET YOURSELF!
