Publisher's Summary

In Platform, Michael Hyatt, one of the top business bloggers in the world, provides down-to-earth guidance for building and expanding a powerful platform.

To be successful in the market today, you must possess two strategic assets: a compelling product and a meaningful platform. In this step-by-step guide, Michael Hyatt, former CEO and current Chairman of Thomas Nelson Publishers, takes readers behind the scenes, into the new world of social media success. He shows you what best-selling authors, public speakers, entrepreneurs, musicians, and other creative minds are doing differently to win customers in today’s crowded marketplace.

Hyatt speaks from experience. He writes one of the top 800 blogs in the world and has more than 100,000 followers on Twitter. His large and growing platform serves as the foundation for his successful writing, speaking, and consulting practice.

In Platform, Hyatt will teach readers not only how to extend their influence, but also how to monetize it and build a sustainable career. The key is to build a platform. It has never been easier, less expensive, or more possible than right now.

The book includes:

  • Proven strategies,
  • Easy-to-replicate formulas, and
  • Practical tips.

Social media technologies have changed everything. Now, for the first time in history, non-celebrities can get noticed - and win big! - in an increasingly noisy world.

    "Excellent book!"

    I started listening to this book and found myself taking so many notes that I bought the hardcover to go along with it so I could highlight everything I wanted to notate! Great information and I am now going to put together a plan to take action on my blog and begin creating my platform! Thank you Michael Hyatt for all the great value in this book!

    "Overall Good Suggestions, Little Outdated"

    All good suggestions - some of the tech info (e.g. regarding Twitter) seem outdated but besides that this book contains excellent marketing suggestions. I can honestly say I learned a lot.

    "Good ideas, but Twitter?"

    I learned a lot about building a platform, especially refining my blog. Too bad that so much social media time was spent on Twitter. What about Facebook?

    "Building a Voice!"

    Michael Hyatt is fantastic. He instructs with a calm, poised demeanor and pleasant tone. This book is critical to the successful development of my new spreaking/coaching platform and i couldn't be more satisfied with the content!

    "How to guide for success"

    Wow.

    I want to be Michael Hyatt when I grow up!

    I discovered Michael on a virtual summit and took copious notes during his presentation. I purchased the audio and kindle versions of Platform but will now also invest in the hardcover edition. (It has earned a spot on my shelf. Prime real estate. It's THAT good.)

    His pragmatic advice, outstanding experience and incredible generosity pack this book so densely that I've begun to immediately read it again!

    "What single brave decision do I need to make today?" --Michael Hyatt

    Today, I start.

    "The "Ten Commandments" of branding in a social media world"

    Incredible. Too many words to express the gratitude I have for @michaelhyatt writing this book. If you are an entrepreneur, a creative, this book is a MUST HAVE.
