Why publish with Major Street?
"There’s no question in my mind that publishing my book has been the single biggest catalyst for my business growth and I continue to be grateful for your support."
"Publishing books has helped me grow my business significantly. Our business heavily relies on our ability to demonstrate expertise and trustworthiness. A book is the best tool that I know of that achieves this. It allows you to share your knowledge, insights and beliefs in a way that is educational, not 'salesy'. As a result, this not only generates a substantial amount of new business, but it attracts prospects that are already aligned to your beliefs. My books are responsible for generating over one third of new business and referrals. They have also generated invitations for me to appear on TV, podcasts and blogs. As a result of my books enhancing my profile, I have been invited to be a regular contributor to The Australian newspaper."
Never underestimate the power of a book to deliver a serious return on your investment in your self."
Andrea Clarke, CEO of Future Fit Co and award-winning author
"Working with Lesley Williams and Major Street Publishing through the publication and distribution of my book ‘A Surfers Guide to Property Investing’ has provided a huge boost to our company's lead generation and has opened up enormous media opportunities which would have never been possible without her expertise and guidance. Since launching my book our business has grown over 40% in the past 12 months alone!
