The books below represent a variety of projects but certainly not all of them. Some contracts prohibit Ben from disclosing his involvement. (And his attorney thinks it would be a good idea to honor those requests.)
Sometimes you don't need as many words as you might find in a traditional book to say something meaningful.

Books Are the Foundation of a Content Ecosystem
Books are the most widely accepted medium available to collect, organize, and share ideas. You don't have to explain how to use them. And you never have to search for a plug, update an operating system, or connect to a Wi-Fi network.
Once your book is complete, Ben can turn it into blog posts, email marketing, social media content, speeches, presentations, case studies, scripts, podcasts, and a variety of other content forms, so you can build your platform of influence. The effort to create a book is fully maximized when you see it as the foundation to gaining attention and building an engaged tribe of followers and fans.
You Need a Collaborator
Turn your ideas into dollars without the fear of staring at a blank screen.
Ben can take your notes, notions, and outlines and turn them into a book (and more) in less time than you think. He is used to working with executives and busy professionals and has a proven track-record of delivering a finished product on time, on budget, and on point.
Each project is different and should be treated as such.
He has successfully worked with publishers, agents, CEOs, executive directors, consultants, and pastors, to develop books and eBooks designed to meet the goals you have for the project.
Ben brings a proven process to get you from idea to done. And since he can write one thousand words per hour, Ben can help you meet your publishing deadline without having to dramatically disrupt your normal workflows.
Minimal Impact on Existing Workflows
Content is the sum total of our questions, obstacles, experiences, and perspectives. These insights often emerge in spontaneous moments of inspiration. But when harnessed through a system of predictable habits, they can move people to action.
Ben’s experience includes working with sales and development teams, executives, and consultants on a single project or ongoing basis. He can consistently and systematically fuel your content marketing and brand journalism engines with minimal interruption to your normal workflows.
You Won’t Have to Do This Alone
Ideas should disrupt, engage, and inspire people to connect, collaborate, and create change. Publishing manages the tension between your message and its delivery to ensure everyone receives your invitation to create a better tomorrow.
Ben Stroup combines the systematic nature of publishing with the revenue responsibilities of marketing to yield a content ecosystem that will work for you and accelerate your ability to achieve your growth targets.
Every author is unique, and every project is different. Whether you start with a manuscript, notes, or a blank page, Ben will walk you through the entire project. You won’t be just a number or assigned to some random editor in a cubicle. You’ll get his personal attention and proven skills.
