Weather you are launching a product or if you are looking to become an author or a blogger but don’t have much digital marketing knowledge yet, then I highly recommend Michael Hyatt’s book,
Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World [Audio].  As said on the cover, this book is a guide for anyone with something to say or to sell. Even if you already are blogging, Michael’s book has advice that can help take you to the next level.

Michael Hyatt lives in my hometown of Nashville, TN and was the CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishers for eight years. Now he serves as Chairman and is a major thought leader and an influencer in the online world.

Michael’s book, Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World [Audio] argues that creating an effective platform is the key to success and gives you a guide a building your own virtual stage.

This book:

  • Starts with “Wow”
  • Gives advice on branding & prepares you to launch
  • Talks you though building your home base
  • Gives you methods for expanding your reach
  • And engaging you online community

Michael is full of great advice and I recommend following his blog and his twitter to stay tuned to all he has to offer to the blogging and publishing community. His blog has been ranked in the top three for Productivity, Leadership, Publishing, and Social Media Marketing. Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World was one of the books that helped me feel confident about starting my online platform, the Nerdabilities blog.
