Recently I worked with a group of amazing men on a project called “The Warrior Guides“. The goal was to product a series of books that focuses on Time Management which were all branded under the same name.
The purpose of this? There is huge power in numbers and working with a team of people with a common goal helps you achieve so much more than what you could achieve on your own.
I loved the interaction and the fact that everyone had a role to play in the planning, production, execution and subsequent marketing of the series.
The exposure that each team member will get is multiplied by ten. Why? Because ten people are driving the marketing of the series. The number of people that we as a team can reach with our marketing efforts completely outstrips the marketing effort by one person. Each team member has a circle of friends and followers on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube and other social platforms that has the potential to reach millions of people. Now that’s power.
So my question to you is: why on earth would you try and do it all on your own when you could have results that exceeds your wildest dreams by working with a team? Perhaps it’s your ego that is getting in the way? You want to do it all yourself and get all the credit?
The problem with that approach is that it takes a really long time. If you think about what’s involved in producing a book there’s a lot that needs to be done:
- Write the book
- Format it
- Design the cover
- Load it on Amazon
- Create a Book Review Video
- Post it on all the different social platforms
- List your book at all the Kindle sites
- Pay for Advertising
- Get people to review your book
- Setup a web page to drive traffic to
Would I do a project like this again? In a heart beat!
