Greetings, Dear Writerpreneur,
I pray that you are well.
Welcome to another Empowering Post, where I teach you valuable lessons that will impact your Christian authorship.
For today's article, I want to urge you to make the necessary steps towards developing your author's brand. As the headline suggests, if you don't start this now, you will regret it later.
In a previous article, I touched upon this same topic. And because branding is such an important element for writerpreneurs, I want to bring further clarity to the topic.
You already know that branding is more than simply having a logo. It's your reputation as a writerpreneur. It entails the core values that you possess. It's your mark in a crowded industry.
You project or display this brand in various ways, such as creating a logo or using certain colors and images to represent who you are.
Too often, new Christian Writerpreneurs want to jump to the design element of branding; but they have not cultivate the message or science of the brand. They have no direction with their business, and as such, they come across as confusing to others.
This is why it's important to begin building your brand today so that once you are ready to promote or market it to others, there's a clear, concise message that will be received.
So, let's get straight into today's teaching.
Making Strides Daily to Build Your Brand
Take a look at some of your favorite brands, even the ones that have nothing to do with writerpreneurship. What do you notice about them?
How long do you think it took them to cultivate their business and reputation?
Your answer should definitely be more than a few hours.
Deciding what your brand will look like or entail is something that builds upon months of development. Successful entrepreneurs are the ones who have done something every day that directly connects to the brand and business.
Whether it's writing a blog post each day; or working on the brand's image; or speaking with known influencers who relate to one's brand; in all, successful entrepreneurs are committed to seeing their brand excel in a crowded industry.
Here's my example. My brand and reputation as a self-publishing expert to Christian Authors did not emerge over night. It took several years for me to cultivate this reputation.
And when I decided to expand my brand's reach and impact, it took another 9 months just to do the research on revamping my brand. Another three months were spent on putting the images together so that everything resembled a cohesive look.
I started building my brand every day, little by little. And what I noticed is that as I took the time to care for my business, I enhanced my role as the go-to brand for Christian Authors and Writerpreneurs.
In like manner, you want to work on your author's brand every day. Not once a month or even once a week.
You need to spend time on it so that as you begin to share your expert knowledge on a given topic, people come to view your brand as something remarkable and trustworthy.
Why Building Your Brand is Important
In this next section, I want to share with you important reasons why building your brand as a Christian Author is so crucial.
Stop Sitting Back on Building Your Brand
So, now you can see why if you don't start building your brand, you will regret it later. Branding is more vital to your growth and development as a Christian Author than you realize.
And once you start working on this, you will quickly understand just how beneficial it is to your writing ministry.
So, don't sit back on this important element. Don't waste any more time trying to determine if branding is important for you.
You now know that is. However, the challenge is in knowing how to put it together. And this message is what I teach to my clients and students. Continue reading more of this article to learn how you can receive this advanced training.

Step 2: Get Trained
The majority of new and aspiring Christian Authors assume that because God gave them the vision to write a book, then it's up to God to put everything together. They fail to realize that the success of their ministry is based on their training.
There are five pillars that Christian Authors generally lack:
