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
    Family Christian
    Barnes & Noble
    Christian Book Distributors
  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!

    I see that I am only the 191st comment on here, probably because everyone else who bought the book is focused on reading it…but I’m busy downloading the bonus content right now, thank you for the extra resources, they were a great incentive to buy the book right away, a lot of people can learn from that kind of marketing!

    Got the book! Bought it yesterday, but was in the middle of reading another book that I wanted to finish.  Finished that book and cannot wait to get started on Platform…starting today!

    Checked out a few of the bonus content and happy to say I’ll be reading the book and taking notes via my Kindle reader!  Safe to say I’ll be consuming a lot of Platform content over the next couple weeks.

    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.

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      Nope, I don’t. I simply trust my readers to do the right thing. The vast majority will. Thanks.

  • Randy Wilburn

    Hey Michael,

    Congrats on the book!  I cannot wait to read it.  I just ordered my copy through Amazon last night.  I discovered you through Cliff Ravenscraft and I love your podcast!  Keep up the great work and keep operating in your Purpose. 

    Best Blessings
    Randy Wilburn

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      Thanks, Randy. I love Cliff.

  • Rebecca

    I purchased a hard copy from Amazon on Monday.  It arrived on Tuesday!  My husband and I are enjoying it tremendously!  Unfortunately, I have sent the receipt via email to both of the email addresses provided because the “gifts” email comes back as undeliverable.  I have never gotten the email verification (despite having sent the receipt 3 times) and link to the gifts…and I would really like to have the link sent to my email address so that we can access all of the wonderful information that you’re providing.  Thank you so much for giving us so much value!

    • Rebecca

      I just sent the receipt a fourth time and it finally worked! So happy!  Thank you!

      • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

        Awesome. Not sure what the problem was. I’m glad you got it.

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      I apologize for the inconvenience. We will take care of this right away and get you the link. Stay tuned …

    If I order today, but it’s back-ordered, will I still get the bonus? 

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      Yes, you will. However, Amazon has it in stock.

  • http://davidlarteyblog.wordpress.com David Lartey

    I ordered mine a few hours ago and I’m currently waiting for the receipt and when its done I’ll send them to you ASAP.
    Anyway I’d like to say thank you for this great offer.

    Just flew Matt (our Social Guru) in for 3 days of whiteboard work on the subject “Why are we going to ICRS”. Your video (and book) came up on the 3rd day. We bought two of course! Thanks for being a leader. By the way, nice pitch.

    I just ordered the book from Amazon, but they won’t ship it to me for another 1-2 days, which means I won’t get a receipt until then. Can I send my order confirmation to the email address to get the free gifts? 

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      Yep, the order confirmation is sufficient.

    Michael, I just made a rap video promoting your book.  Here’s the link.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0zL2ARAJemg&feature=youtu.beThanks for everything you do!!!

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      That is awesome. Perhaps the most original promotion for Platform I have seen! Thank you.

    Just picked up ‘Platform’ yesterday. This read is loaded. Thanks for giving away your expertise.

  • http://tikesbestfriend.com/ Tim Dahl

    My book just got here from Amazon. I’ve forwarded the email I had from them after I bought it, but I’ve not seen the automated email responder asking for verification.  Did my email not get through the other day?

      We are a little backed up, but we will get you taken care of. Thanks.

    I just ordered my copy and made it in before the cut off time by just a few hours – phew!  Close one lol!!  I can’t WAIT to read it!  I would have bought your book anyway – but this deal is just too amazing to not take advantage of – thank you SO much!!! 

  • http://www.roshawnwatson.com/ Roshawn Watson

    Purchased. I just emailed you my receipt too. I’m really excited.

    Sorry to have missed the bonus — I was out of the loop when the offer was made. Congrats on the success of PLATFORM.

  • http://www.SevenPillarsOfSuccess.Net Louise Thaxton

    I have been waiting on the book and was so excited for the date to get here!  I purchased hard back copy and Kindle edition and e-mailed receipt for both to the e-mail address you gave last week but never received the free offers.  Am I doing something wrong – or sending to wrong address?  gifts@michaelhyatt.com?  

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      I’m not sure, Louise. It could be that the e-mail was trapped in your spam folder. Regardless, I will have someone get it to you. It may be Tuesday because of the holiday. Thanks.

      • http://www.SevenPillarsOfSuccess.Net Louise Thaxton

        Thanks, Michael – I appreciate it.

    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.



    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      Yes, that is true. In essence, Amazon doesn’t let you put a book in their cloud unless you buy it from them.

  • cheryll

    michael - 
    did the pre-order on your appointed day but still haven’t received ‘platform.’  ups says maybe by thursday.  i’m about to release my own book and have been waiting excitedly for the book.  never thought b&n would have been a quicker option.  live and learn.

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      Sorry about that. Where did you order it from?

  • http://HomesatHelper.com Belinda Parrish

    Thank you Mr. Hyatt for this wonderful offer for buying this book. My 13 year old son started reading  it immediately while riding in the van!
    I have tried multiple times to email (I bought before the deadline), but have had no response.

    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.

  • http://www.photographyandtransformation.com/ Sheila Finkelstein

    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!
