7 Reasons to Buy My New Book Now

UPDATE: Sorry, this bonus offer has now expired!

Today, I am launching my new book, Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World (Nashville: Thomas Nelson). To celebrate, I am giving away seven bonuses worth $375.98 to everyone who buys a copy this week and e-mails me the receipt. I’ll share the details in a moment.

I won’t spend time in this post telling you about the book. I have created an entire page for that purpose, complete with endorsements from 27 people who were kind enough to read it before publication, including Seth Godin, Chris Brogan, Dave Ramsey, John Maxwell, and many, many others.

In addition, more than one hundred people have posted reviews on the major online retailer sites. All of them (so far) are five-star. The words and phrases you’ll find repeated are “specific,” “practical,” “down to earth,” “inspiring,” and “empowering.”

On the product page I go into detail about why I wrote the book and how it can help anyone—authors, public speakers, bloggers, recording artists, business owners, sales people, pastors, brand managers—get visibility for themselves and their message.

The main thing I want to communicate here is that if you buy the book THIS WEEK, I will give you seven FREE bonuses:

  1. Platform Video Jumpstart (a $179.00 six-session video series)
  2. Why Now Is the Best Time Ever to Be an Author (a $47.00 one-session video)
  3. How to Write a Winning Book Proposal (a $47.00, two-session audio series)
  4. Writing a Winning Non-Fiction Book Proposal (a $19.97 e-book)
  5. Writing a Winning Fiction Book Proposal (a $19.97 e-book)
  6. All the Digital Editions of Platform (a $38.06 collection of the Kindle, Nook, iPad, and PDF formats)
  7. Audio Edition of Platform (a $24.99 audio edition of the entire book)

This offer is only valid through the end of the day, May 25th, CDT. At that point, this offer goes away FOREVER. To get these seven FREE bonuses, you must take these three steps:

  1. Purchase Platform from your favorite bookseller. You can chose from one of the online retailers below or your local bookseller. The book retails for $24.99, but many retailers are selling it for less than $15.00
    Amazon
    Books-a-Million
    Family Christian
    Mardel
    Barnes & Noble
    Christian Book Distributors
    Lifeway
    Parable
  2. E-mail me a copy of your receipt. You can simply forward a copy of the receipt from your online retailer to gifts@michaelhyatt.com. If you buy a physical copy from a local retailer, scan the receipt and e-mail it to the same address. It’s that simple.
  3. Confirm your e-mail address. I don’t want to inadvertently spam anyone, so I follow a strict, double opt-in e-mail list procedure. I will reply to your e-mail and ask you to confirm your address before I proceed further. (Actually, this is automated, but you get the idea.)

That’s it!

Once I get your confirmation, I will e-mail you the link to the special Platform Bonus Download Page, where you will get access to all seven bonuses.

If you’re serious about taking yourself, your business, or your product to the next level, order your copy of Platform today and get started.

Again, this offer goes away forever after May 25th, 2012. Don’t miss it!

  • Tcsikos

    Hello Micheal,
    first of all, congratulation to your new book!How can it be that there are already 73 customer reviews at amazon.cam about the book (all of them with 5 stars of course…)? 

    • http://www.jmlalonde.com Joe Lalonde

       Tesikos, there are already reviews on Amazon because Michael and the publisher gave away review copies. No one was required to leave a positive review. They were required only to give their honest opinion.

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      Amazon has been selling it since they got their inventory—about three weeks ago. That is how it works in the publishing world. The book ships about a month ahead of schedule, so that it has time to make it to all the retailers and get on the shelves. Though there is an official publication date (in my case May 22), retailers can begin selling it as soon as they get it.
      Plus, as Joe pointed out, we distributed review copies to early readers. This again is standard operating procedure. We asked them to read the book, and provide an honest review. We didn’t require they write a positive review.

      • http://www.thereligionteacher.com/ Jared Dees

        Thanks for clarifying this, Michael, and providing a great model for authors. The “launch day” of a traditionally published book is difficult to pinpoint even for the publishers. I love that you’ve “launched” your book today even though the book was already available. We’ve had authors ask us why their book is available before “launch day” and your answer here seems to be a great response. 

        • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

          The only exception to this practice is a hard “street date.” This happens rarely, because it is difficult to enforce. As a result, publishers only do it with very, very big books—like a new Harry Potter novel.

          • http://www.thereligionteacher.com/ Jared Dees

            Oh the power of metadata…

    • http://patalexander.com Pat Alexander

      Tesikos, it was very exciting to be a part of Mike’s launch team. It was an honor to be selected and be able to get a pre-release copy of the book to read and review. It is worth every positive review it has received. Buy it, you will find it possibly the most useful business book for today’s environment that there is.

  • http://blog.cyberquill.com/ Cyberquill

    This offer is only valid through the end of the day, May 25th, CDT. At that point, this offer goes away FOREVER.

    Alright, but FOREVER means FOREVER, right? You’re not going to use that old marketing trick and extend the offer “just ONE time” due to “overwhelming demand” or  because your virtual assistant and your accountants “forced” you against your own better judgment or something along these lines.

    • http://www.danieldecker.net/ Daniel Decker

       : ) I work with Michael on the launch. No, you won’t see any gimmicks here. When it’s over, it’s over. This full package of bundled resources will not be offered together like this again after end of day on May 25.

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      Yes, forever. You have my word on it. We will sell these bonuses later, of course, but this is your only chance to get them free with the purchase.

      • http://www.producewithpassion.com Dan McCoy

        Michael, I have my passcode but – Will we still have access to these vids etc after that date?

        • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

          Yep. You can check the FAQs here. Thanks.

          • http://www.producewithpassion.com Dan McCoy

            Thanks – At 5AM – I totally missed that. :-)  

  • http://www.SiaKnight.com/ Sia Knight

    I can’t wait to receive the insight provided by the new book. I’m planning to purchase it today!

    • http://www.jmlalonde.com Joe Lalonde

       You won’t be disappointed Sia. It’s an amazing book full of insight.

  • http://www.jmlalonde.com Joe Lalonde

    I was able to get a review copy of the book and must say I was blown away by it. Blew through the book in two days(may be the quickest I finished a book) and loved it. I will be going back through the book a couple of times and then keeping it on the shelf for review. 

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      Thanks for your kind words, Joe!

    • http://www.tnealtarver.wordpress.com TNeal

       Your words, Joe, remind me why I got a hard copy instead of the Kindle version. I’m sure I’ll be flipping through the pages to review the material. It’s good to have the resource on the shelf.

      • http://www.jmlalonde.com Joe Lalonde

        Glad my words rung true. The great part is when you buy the hard copy, you also get the Kindle version along with a ton of other goodies. 

        I know this book will be sitting on my desk or near it as I write future blog posts. It’s just that good!

  • David

    Hi Michael, 
    Does this apply to “KINDLE” Purchases? Or do we have to purchase a hard copy? Thank you. This if my first post and have been anticipating this book! Can’t wait!
    Thank you for you experience and wisdom.

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      Yes, it does. However, if you buy the physical copy, you get the Kindle edition free.

      • http://www.facebook.com/roger.benge Roger Benge

        I was going to buy the Audio version but saw that it is also included in the offer so i bought the hardback.  I figure i can make notes in it and maybe someday I’ll be lucky enough to meet you and get it autographed.  By the way, already read the first chapter.  love it.

        • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

          Thanks, Roger!

      • Sarah tip

        How do I then get the kindle edition free? I ordered the hardback on Amazon.

        • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

          It is one of the bonuses on the bonus page, under Digital Editions. Did you get the link to that page?

      • http://www.tnealtarver.wordpress.com TNeal

         Did not know that about the Kindle edition added in. Nice to know although I wanted the hardcover anyway.

  • http://www.fromnowtillido.com Chichi

    Hi Does this apply to overseas purchases? I want to buy your book from amazon.co.uk, but your link takes me to amazon.com. 

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      Yes, if you can buy it in this window of time any where, you can still get the bonuses.

      • http://www.fromnowtillido.com Chichi

        Thanks Michael and Congrats on your new book, can’t wait to read it!

  • Tricia

    Congratulations on your new book Michael.  Is the above video available for sharing? It is not on youtube or vimeo  so no access to an embed code.

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      It should be showing now. I forgot to flip the flag from private to public. Argh.
      Can you confirm that you can see it? Thanks.

      • Tricia

         Video is visible on Vimeo now Michael, thanks!

        • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

          So good to know.

  • http://successbeginstoday.org/wordpress John Richardson

    Wow Michael, launch day is finally here. Thanks for letting us all tag along on your journey from blog post to published book. I can honestly say, I’ve never seen an offer like this from any author or publisher. To be able to get the audio version and all the peripheral materials for free is very compelling. I can’t imagine anyone who won’t take advantage of it.

    As far as the book goes, there are so many people who need to read this…

    1. Anyone with a business
    2. Entrepreneurs
    3. Writers, speakers, and artists
    4. Anyone out of work and looking for a job.
    5. Stay at home moms
    6. Anyone with a dream…

    I hope that we hear stories of readers who take your message, create amazing platforms, and change the world… one tweet, post, or article at a time!

    Congratulations on a job well done!

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      Thanks, John, for all your encouragement along the way!

    What amazed by this book is how many ways it can apply to your life. It’s not just about becoming a well known blogger. The principles apply to anything you do. You can read it straight throug, as I did. Or you can use it as a reference source later on, as I plan to.

    This is a great book. (I had the opportunity to buy it at the SCORRE conference.) One of the things I mention in my review is the fact that you can put down the highlighter with this book, because every word was valuable. There was no filler, like so many other books include. I could go right to the chapter I wanted to review, and get a list of tips, each one useful, without having to search for them.

    I’m proud to be a part of the platform review team, but I still purchased a hard copy because it’s a book I will refer to again and again as I continue to work on my own platform.

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      Thanks so much, Kelly. I appreciate all your support in this process!

    Michael,

    Thanks for the insight and additional info. Your proposal e-book is Money… it’s what I used for my proposal and subsequently landed publishing deals. I originally bought the kindle of your new Platform book this morn until I saw your comment saying if you buy the physical copy, you get the kindle for free. Cancelled the order and just bought the hardcover.

    #FistBump and congrats on your book. already #3 in several business categories.

      Thanks, Tor! B the way, your question about platform will be in my podcast on Wednesday.

  • http://www.charlielyons.ca/ Charlie Lyons

    If today is the launch date, why does Amazon say “Pre-Order with 1-Click… 
    This title will be auto-delivered to your Kindle on May 22, 2012.”? Today is a statutory holiday where I live (Ontario, Canada) and I was hoping to devote most of the day to reading. Apparently I can’t get it until tomorrow on Kindle, regardless of what I try. Any suggestions?

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      Unfortunately, Amazon is strict on the pub date with Kindle editions—and that’s tomorrow. HOWEVER. If you buy the physical copy, you get the Kindle version free with the bonus package. You can start reading it immediately.

      • http://www.charlielyons.ca/ Charlie Lyons

        I thought about that just before you commented back. I’ll move on that right now. :-) Thanks, Michael, for your quick reply. Blessings!

      Nice..thanks Brandon!

    It sounds like a fantastic resource for where I’m at right now.  Can’t wait to take it all in…and then do what I need to do to cut through the noise.

    I’ll grab a copy and send you my receipt a.s.a.p.  Looking forward to the extra goodies, thanks.

    Again, congratulations!

  • JaysonFeltner

    Just ordered it!  I’m buying it on my iPad, but I had to also order a hard copy of this book.  This one belongs on every writer’s bookshelf.  I purchased it through Amazon to help bump it up Amazon’s best sellers list.  It sure was hard waiting this long since they’ve been shipping it out for a while now, but if it helps get Michael on the NYT Best Sellers list again, I’m all for it!

    Best of luck!

      Thanks, Jayson. I appreciate it!

    Hi Michael.
    Does this offer still stand if I purchase the kindle version of the book. I live in the UK and your book is not going on sale here until late June the kindle version is available now.

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      Yes, it does. Thanks.

  • Giridhar

    I know Michael Hyatt for just few weeks. I read each and every article from Mike and listened to pod casts. I now believe that every book from Mike should be in my iPad.
    So I pre-ordered Kindle version Just now and I am eagerly waiting for the book to be delivered on May 22nd.

    Thanks Mike for sharing your learning and experience with us. God bless you and your team

    • http://www.MicheleCushatt.com/ Michele Cushatt

      • http://www.kellycombs.com/ Kelly Combs

        So funny you said that Michele! In my review I said I quickly realized that I needed to put down the highlighter, because every word was valuable. When a book is so well written, with so little filler, no need to highlight. It is ALL GOOD!  YAY!

  • http://talesofwork.com/ kimanzi constable

    This book was so helpful to me and opened my eyes to some things I need to change as I build my platform. I’ve seen some success but know this book will help me take things to the next level! I’m honored to be on the launch team!

    If you’re thinking about buying it, it’s worth every dollar.

    • http://www.MicheleCushatt.com/ Michele Cushatt

      I agree, Kimanzi. Worth every dollar and more. This is one of those books that will help the beginner as well as the more experienced. It’s packed full of practical to-dos to launch your platform from where it is now to something with wider reach and more potential for influence. Who doesn’t need/want help getting their message out? It’s excellent.

  • Jamie

    Just purchased the book and received the free content.

    Michael I wish you every success with this book. I’m sure it will be the first of many successful endeavors for you in the future.

  • http://somewiseguy.com/ ThatGuyKC

    Congratulations on the launch of Platform! I just ordered my copy from Amazon and can’t wait to begin diving into the free gifts and read the book once it arrives.

    I just finished reading EntreLeadership by Dave Ramsey and started Quitter by Jon Acuff this morning. Will be done in time for Platform to be delivered.

    Am excited to build my platform the right way and begin crafting my dream job debt free.

    • Rachel Lance

      Way to go! Do what you must to keep sight of that vision. The road might be long but that vision is what will keep you going. Let us know what you think of Platform and what you plan to implement first.

  • http://www.producewithpassion.com Dan McCoy

    I find it pretty sad that a p*0 rn  book sits (and continues to do s0) at number one for days on end when you have great content like Brendan Burchard’s The Charge and Michael’s new book which I am sure is going to be great.   I just got my copy from Brendan sent to me free (yay). Ordered PLATFORM at 5:13AM this morning

    BTW, Michael, I have been bugging my marketing coach (Robin Robins) who is in Nashville (lives next to Dave Ramsey) to give you a call and get you on an interview.  She’s got over 16,000 subscribers that we can get you in front of if we can.   Hopefully she will soon.

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      Great, Dan. Thanks.

      I will be on Dave’s show on Wednesday. He is a good friend.

  • Kodakalla

    Wow… As soon as I ordered the book and sent email to you, Within few minutes, I got all the gifts.I am able to download and listen to the videos.  Thats excellent Mike. So happy today…Can’t wait any more. have to start reading your book right now :):)

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      Wonderful!

  • Giridhar

    Its already in 4th position on Amazon. Thats amazing …

  • Jeanna Baker

    Bought and sent confirmation through Amazon. Said only 7 left in stock (now 6 I suppose). I RARELY by hard copies of books and almost never these types of books (the only exception until now being Acuff’s Quitter). If these reviews are any indication this is whole package is going to become crucial to me as I navigate the treacherous beginnings on the path to my dream (also known as God’s will for my life!). Thanks!

    • Rachel Lance

      Not so treacherous, Jeanna! Practice the fine art of looking for the beauty along the way. Embrace the challenges and one day we’ll all be learning from your platform story! Let us know what you think of the book!

      • Jeanna Baker

        The beauty is easy to see, Rachel. It is tamping down that devilish fear that keeps me so stumped at times. I’ll get through it though, I am taking the second half of the summer college session off to allow me time to more fully focus on determining and reaching my goals and will likely not get to this book until after the Fourth because of that. I will definitely be sharing my thoughts though!

    Checked out the bonus resources and I have a question.  Will access to the page be disabled when the offer expires or will we be able to access it for an extended period of time?  I ask because the videos aren’t downloadable (or at least they don’t appear to be) and I wouldn’t want to miss out on all that information/encouragement/inspiration if they are only going to be available for a limited time.  I was really expecting that content to be available in a form that we would have on a permanent basis and be able to refer to again and again.

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      Yep, you will have ongoing access—as long as my blog is alive and well!

      • Donald

        Excellent news!!  Your blog, the podcasts, and the comments are such a breath of fresh air – a consistent source of real inspiration, relevant information, and fresh perspective – that I find myself reviewing articles I’ve already read and still coming away with a renewed sense of enthusiasm.  For the first time in a long time I actually feel encouraged and motivated (I work in an essentially dead-end job for an overpoliticized state government agency for people in authority that seem to thrive on squeezing the life out the employees) about the future.  Thanks for challenging me to get back to the basics while also pushing me to look beyond what I’ve always seen and embrace that which may seem impossible to attain.

          Donald,
          Your motivation—motivates me! Keep going!

      Donald – access to the bonus items page will remain.  The only deadline is to actually purchase the book….once you access the bonus items you’ll be able to go back to them at your leisure.  Thanks!

    Thank you for the book and bonus content. I am looking forward to learning a lot!

    Just a note for others, the images in the original post led me to believe that the bonus includes physical discs, but that is not the case. (To be sure, nothing in the text actually promised hard copies, so why the images?) Everything is digital; some can be downloaded, and some appears only available as a stream from the bonus page. I guess I will need to be online whenever I want to watch the sessions. I am still happy with the bonuses (hey, it’s free stuff!) but would have appreciated knowing that up front rather than expecting a set of discs. 

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      Thanks for your comments and thanks for buying the book.

      I frankly struggled with that. But it is difficult to depict bits and bytes. The content is the same regardless of how it’s delivered.
      Thanks again.

          It’s been an exciting day indeed! Last I saw, Platform. Was #1 in several categories on Amazon and #4 in overall sales which is a pretty big deal in itself! Can’t wait to see the rest of this story unfold!

    Michael, the book releases for Kindle on MAY 22, tomorrow. There are CDs – do you know when and if AUDIBLE.COM will be picking this up for download?  Sorry for the caps – dk how to make bold for the comment box.  Looking forward to this release and am trying to decide on the best format.  

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      I am not sure about Audible, but if you buy the book and get the bonus downloads, you get the same audio files Audible will use.

      • Carrie Fancett Pagels

        I presume you mean buy the book as CD there are bonus downloads. That does not make sense that with the purchase of a printed book there are bonus downloads that cover the entire book on audio. I am an audible platinum member. Usually if audible is going to pick it up it is within several months. Not always. Congrats and thanks for writing the book!

        • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

          I am saying that if you buy either the print or electronic edition of the book, the bonuses apply. Hope that helps.

    After following Michael for a few years, I have no qualms about this being a fabulous offer!  Though, I am worried about purchasing this book before the 25th.  I ordered it on amazon yesterday.  It was listed as “This title has not yet been released.
    You may pre-order it now and we will deliver it to you when it arrives.”  My estimated delivery date is in June.  Thus my card will not be charged until it is shipped which will be AFTER May 25!!!  Help!

    That idea was the simple answer to the question, “What do my readers take away from this entry?” I wasn’t answering that before and making my blog too much about me. Thanks for the simple and profound insight!

    My current boss suggested I become a follower and I am so glad I did.  I always learn.  Thank you!

    I went on line to buy your book, checked Amazon and  Barnes & Noble for price. Amazon was a little cheaper but  BN was near where I had an appointment nearby so called them and discovered to my glee they had in stock.  They agreed to reserve a copy for me. Great!  I arrived and headed straight to the counter, associate was very friendly, she rang it up and asked for payment that was double the price I had seen online.  I said there must be some mistake.  It was half the price when I checked online.  She said, “we are  obligated to charge the publisher’s price in the store.”  I muttered “you are kidding” and then said,  “thanks but no thanks I’ll buy it on line.”

    I went home and ordered online through Amazon not for spite but  because it was one click (my profile is stored) and there was no tax!

    Do the publishers/bookstores really think this practice will last over the long-term?

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      It seems amazingly short-sighted, doesn’t it? Wow.

    Micheal, congratulations on the launch.  I have enjoyed following along on this journey to write something that many people will find truly indispensable.  I’ve been listening to the audio edition while waiting for the book to arrive. Already I have sat in the car after arriving home as I did not want to pause it for a few moments.
    As others have said having different editions will be valuable and the bonus materials are a wonderful resource.

    Thanks.

    hey Michael –
    I am really looking forward to receiving your book.
    I have a concern though.
    I bought the book and got all the extras already (they are great!).
    Only thing is that the book is shipping from Amazon on the 30th (bummer) but I already have the digital copy etc.
    Do you have protections in place to make sure no one cancels their order after already receiving the digital copy?
    Someone may have already bought this to your attention, but I wanted to just in case.

    Just an FYI – for those that use Kindle. After you download the kindle friendly e-book from his reward website, you can’t upload it to be shareable between your multiple devices.  Yes, you can upload it to the individual devices (aka ipad/kindle app and iphone/kindle app).  But, they won’t sync together.

    Sorry,

    Thank you so much, Michael, for having put together this very generous pre-launch package.  I am so thankful that I opened, the day it was sent,  Andy Andrews email recommending it.  

    I have been listening to PLATFORM in the car the past two days.  How great it is to hear your voice simplifying and breaking down/listing all your important points.  I love that you weave details on the technology that you are using. I’ve been in a lot of IM courses.  

    In addition to reinforcing some of what I’ve learned, you’ve spelled out and stressed some key points in writing, order of writing, what to include, what not and so much more.  I have several websites and a couple of blogs and will be going back and looking at them with new eyes.

    I’ve already recommended the book to a few people.  Are you going to be making the downloadable version available for purchase, perhaps a package of both the print and the MP3s?

    In addition to everything I have from the bonus, I now look forward to going through your site, taking advantage of the wealth of information you have available.

    I do have one question… well two:

    1 – Hmmm. I almost answered myself.  I was going to ask why the most recent comments are at the end of the stream and I just noticed, we have a drop down choice.  It’s simply that the default, evidently, is “Sort by oldest first.”

    2 – Your “signature” box is different from ones I usually see on blogs.  Is this “Post as…” button/option part of the STANDARD theme you are using, a  WP plugin, or something you had designed.

    Most appreciatively,  Sheila

    PS – 3 – The purpose of the image button is ???  I’m assuming our faces will show up as the gravatarswe have.

    Assuming this is immediately following my last comment, I’m simply adding my full name – Sheila Finkelstein. Get so used to first names only in email sign-ups. Again, thank you so very much for the book and the bonus package.

    Hi Michael,

    I just bought your book and working through it. I am a magician, so I had to rack my brain to find a great way to help my customers with some valuable contact. My blog, http://www.JoshLondonMagic.com is coming along nicely and just want to thank you for your book/help!
