If you at all want to grow a platform, this is the book you need to read first. I can’t tell you enough how helpful it has been. I wish I read it two years ago. And the source? Not some self-named “guru,” but someone who actually knows a thing or two about growing a platform: Michael Hyatt.
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 creatives 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? By building a platform. It has never been easier, less expensive, or more possible than right now. . . The book includes:
- proven strategies
- easy-to-replicate formulas
- 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.
I really don’t have much to add, because the description is spot on. It’s a must read, extremely helpful and worth every penny!
