Benefits Vs. Features: A Crucial Key to Selling More Books

Synopsis
One of biggest marketing mistakes we non-fiction authors can make is to confuse the benefits and features that a reader will get if they buy our book. And, at first glance, it might seem a little difficult to understand the differences – especially if you are writing a book for the first time. And, if you the author don’t understand how to explain the benefits and features of your own book, the reader/buyer will certainly be confused – which means that they won’t buy your book. So, here is a quick explanation to help you understand the basic differences between a book’s benefits, and a book’s features.

The Professor Can Help You Sell More Books!

What You Will Learn In This Post
1. You will learn how to quickly define your book’s benefits.
2. You will learn how to quickly define your book’s features.
3. You will learn how and why benefits and features work together to help you sell more books. Continue reading
