What makes books drawn from podcasts so special?
Although some people think otherwise, the number of active readers is only increasing. The same happens with podcast listeners. The secret is that the content from books and a podcasts continue to diversify.
A book can not only be a container of information. It can also be a collectible or a motivational asset. An interactive experiment or a practical guide to mastering a new skill. An art gallery, perhaps. The limits are beyond the pages.
If you can create a podcast, you can transform it into a best-selling book
We’ve already talked about how useful it is to delimit an outstanding goal that you can share with your audience to highlight what makes it stand out from the rest.
If this goal translates into the potential creation of a book that follows the show’s content, the ongoing experience of your podcast will become a creative project beyond the audible. In other words, books are super cool (and podcasts are super cool too).
So, if you’ve already ventured into podcasting, why not write a book? Here are some tips and examples of how to overcome the fear of becoming an author and transform your podcast into a best-selling book.
