I’ve been talking a lot this week about Platform University. There’s one simple reason: Enrollment only opens twice a year—and today’s the cutoff. Tonight, after 11:59 p.m. Pacific, the doors close until fall. Can your message wait that long?

Odds are good you have a story to tell and a message to share. But do you know how to get the attention of a publisher?
Along with a powerful personal platform, you also need an irresistible book proposal. If you had just one shot to hold a publisher’s interest and sell them on your book, what would you say? What would include in your pitch?
These days everyone knows that you need a platform to get published. But if you’re like a lot of people I meet, you’re overwhelmed, short on time, and not sure where to begin. It feels impossible. But what if I told you it’s easier than you think?
Part of our problem is that we blow things out of proportion. We think we need a massive celebrity-sized platform. I used to think that. Maybe you think that too.
But here’s the good news. It doesn’t take huge platform—just an engaged one. And that’s within your reach.
If you’re like most bloggers I know, you started with enthusiasm to spare. You cranked out content like crazy. But then life happened. Time got short, and you missed a post. Then two. Now it’s catch as catch can, and your readers don’t know what’s coming next anymore than you do.
What if you could get back on track and create more content in less time? It turns out there are four common obstacles every blogger faces to writing consistent, powerful posts. I know exactly what they are and how to beat them—and I’d like to show you so you’ll be able to produce compelling content with ease.
In my new webinar, Blog Faster, Blog Smarter, I’m sharing ten simple strategies that can help you overcome them and get cranking again. You can join in Wednesday, April 22, at 10:00 a.m. or 1 p.m. Central. There’s no charge, but the number of spots is limited.

Whether you’re an author, coach, consultant, business leader, speaker, or entrepreneur, I know your passion is making a positive difference in the lives of others through your message, product, or service.
But the challenge is trying to gain traction with that message. It can feel nearly impossible to get the the thing you are most passionate about in front of the people who need it the most.
Momentum is a beautiful thing when you’ve got it. But sometimes it can feel like we’re just sitting in the water going nowhere. I’ve certainly felt that.

When I first started blogging, I was only drawing a few hundred visitors a month to my site. No matter what I tried it seemed like I couldn’t get any real momentum.
“Becalmed” is the word sailors use for this. Maybe there’s no wind on the water, or it’s blocked by land. Whatever the reason, our sails are slack and our boat just drifts along.
Most of us possess a deep desire to have a lasting impact and make a positive contribution. But sometimes it feels like we just can’t get any traction, like our messages aren’t connecting, right?
If you’re a blogger, podcaster, or online entrepreneur who feels like you’re spinning your wheels, you’re not alone. The good news is you can sharpen your message and significantly increase your impact with a simple but proven makeover process. My free, three-part video series, Your Platform Makeover, will show you exactly how it’s done.
If there’s one question about platform building I hear more than any other, it’s this: “How can I drive more traffic?” We’re all asking it, right?

We want to influence as many people as we can with our message, and that means connecting with as many readers as possible. But how?
I’m a firm believer in getting outside counsel when I want to grow beyond my current reality. So I asked twenty-six of the top bloggers and communicators what they do to drive traffic, people like Tim Ferriss, Glennon Doyle Melton, Jon Acuff, and John Maxwell.
