How Publishing a Book Increases Credibility & Audience Engagement w/Mitchell Levy

podcast Nov 19, 2019

With so many social media options, it means these platforms are no longer a huge differentiator for entrepreneurs and experts, and that means we need to find other avenues to create an edge and stand out. How do we write a great book without over-investing our time? How can we effortlessly create a breadth of quality content? Why is self-publishing a great option?

On this episode, bestselling author and credibility expert, Mitchell Levy discusses the work he does with busy entrepreneurs helping them write the greatest book of their careers.


Watch the Full Interview:

There are so many experts in the world, a book is how you make sure you still stand out. – Mitchell Levy

Takeaways + Tactics

  • Nowadays every expert has a social media presence. There’s so much competition for the attention of clients and consumers, and a book is what we can use to cut through the noise with credibility.
  • If you’re going to write and publish a book on your own, expect to spend upwards of 320 hours on it.
  • Anthology books are a great way to build relationships with other experts, and speed up the process of creating and marketing a high quality read.

At the start of the show, we talked about how a book can help to differentiate us from the competition, and why self-publishing is a great route to take. We also talked about how a book is the ultimate credibility piece for us, and the difference between the time commitment of writing a book on your own, and working with Mitchell.

We also discussed;

  • How to elevate perceptions with a book 
  • Building relationships through collaborations 
  • How to increase audience engagement
