Write a book that customers want BEFORE you spend time on writing it
Most authors go with their "gut feel" or intuition when they choose a book topic and title. They focus on picking a smart or catchy title that sounds attractive but ends up confusing their readers.
Moreover, most readers are bombarded with hundreds of book titles every day, so if your book topic is not crystal clear (to someone who glances at it in 2 seconds), then you might be losing sales.
Given that there are many free research tools available (including Google and Amazon), there is absolutely no reason why authors should waste their time and energy on a book that doesn't sell.
After taking this course, you'll learn how to craft the perfect book title that is descriptive AND persuasive before you start writing it. You'll end up with a book that grabs attention and turns more people into buyers.

Tips from a 7X Amazon Bestselling Author
My name is Hassan Osman and I understand how it feels to write a book that doesn't sell. When I wrote my first book back in 2006, I spent every weekend for a year at a local coffee shop typing away at my book. When it finally got published, I thought that all that hard work was going to pay off immediately after launch. Unfortunately, it flopped and barely anyone bought it. I learned the hard way that I should have focused on marketing before I wrote a single word.
Picking the right topic and title before I wrote the book was how I should have approached it.
Today, I'm the author of 14 books, including seven Amazon No.1 Bestsellers. I wrote all those books while working a full-time job at Cisco Systems (note: views are my own), so you can follow this simple process without spending a ton of time on it.
I'm also the podcast host of "Writer on the Side" where I help employees become nonfiction authors.
In this course, you'll get simple tips about picking the right title from someone who's done this multiple times.

"Short courses for busy managers"
Hi there, my name is Hassan Osman and I've been managing projects and virtual teams for the past 15+ years.
I'm currently a Director at Cisco Systems,* where I lead Project and Program Management teams on delivering complex projects for Cisco's customers.
Previously, I was a manager at Ernst & Young, where I analyzed failing projects at Fortune 500 companies, and recommended solutions to fix them.
I was also a research assistant at Harvard University, where I studied issues related to virtual teams.
I'm an Amazon bestselling author of 7 books about team management (including "Hybrid Work Management," "Influencing Virtual Teams," "Don't Reply All," "Project Kickoff," and "Effective Delegation of Authority"), and I hold the PMP, CSM and ITIL certifications.
Most managers don't have a lot of time to watch lengthy courses (that are usually full of fluff). So I focus on creating short courses that help busy managers become more effective leaders, without wasting their time.
I have published courses about Writing Better Emails, Managing Hybrid Teams, Delegating Effectively, Leading Virtual Meetings, and Managing and Influencing Virtual Teams.
