Imagine having a blog as having the equipment needed for you to build your own empire. In the meantime, you have to understand that for this empire of yours to grow, you have to be responsible, consistent and persistent to lay one brick after the other. Failing which, the empire will either collapse or remain dormant. However, once your empire has been successfully built, three words: You Own It!

Grashyo Creations has a system that detects as to how every particular lead [potential customer] has been captured. Be it an online or offline lead, we keep records of such data. Over two years of using this system, it has been evident that other leads emanated from the relationships we build through blogging. Through blogging, your content can build relationships that may later become the potential, if not to a direct sale, then a word of web/mouth to someone who does buy.
#-5 Growth in Number of Followers
The fact is: business growth in social media is gradual, by ‘growth’ in this context, we refer to ROI [Return On Investment], but according to recent trends, it is quicker than Outbound Marketing. As much as growth is gradual, the quality of followers the writer can build is extremely high; and converting them into paying customers becomes easy; because they trust your content and opinion. These followers begin to announce your site to everybody else who needs it.
#6-You Sell Softly
This is one admired factor about blogging: Selling. Not just selling, the art behind selling. Selling should be smooth; it is an art beyond skill. And blogging does it for you. Being consistent and persistent about blogging will keep your pipeline full, meaning, it helps you sell… Softly.

All the first five book titles we have submitted to the major bookstores [Exclusive Books, CNA, Adams,and Wordsworth and Bargain Books] have been approved, however, how much the stores will buy will depend on how visible the author is about their work. We will end it from here for now… Authors in Business posts series is coming up.
