Author Solutions

Online Event: Friday, May 19, 12-1PM EDT

With thousands of business books published every year, how do you stand out from the competition? How do you engage your target audience? Ever-shortening attention spans and the explosion of media options make that challenge truly daunting.

That’s where Author Solutions from Leading Indicator Systems (LIS) comes in.

Thought leadership sells! Writing articles and books establishes you as a thought leader in your market. Offering your target audience a validated, online quiz built around your thought leadership reinforces your value proposition. It sells some books but, more importantly, it provides an “on ramp” to working with you.

In this interactive session you’ll hear from two authors about their online assessment tools and the PhD Psychometrician (the science of survey design) who built them. Learn how those assessments are:

  • Sparking business development discussions
  • Enlivening client workshops and speaking engagements
  • Providing continuous data for content marketing


This session is ideal for:

  • Authors who are preparing to publish and want to tie-in an assessment
  • Authors who have already published and are looking to re-energize that thought leadership
  • Consultants, Coaches and Speakers who are looking to turbo-charge their client experience
