Join Me for a FREE Platform-Building Teleseminar with Jeff Goins

I’d like to invite you to join me and my friend Jeff Goins for a free, LIVE platform-building teleseminar on Thursday, June 20th at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time (7:00 p.m. Central, 6:00 p.m. Mountain, 5:00 p.m. Pacific).

Jeff Goins Speaking at the 2013 Platform Conference

2013 Platform Conference, Nashville, Tennessee

During the call, I’ll be interviewing Jeff, who will share how he …

  • Attracted an audience of over 100,000 monthly readers,
  • Built one of the most popular writing blogs on the web, and
  • Became a professional author and speaker in less than two years.

Jeff will also be available to answer live questions—a perfect opportunity for you to ask anything you want about writing, blogging, or publishing. But here’s the catch: You MUST register to participate.

What You’ll Learn

We will begin by hearing Jeff’s story of how he went from frustrated blogger to published author. We’ll explore the steps he took to “turn pro” as a writer, which allowed him to quit his job and pursue his passion full-time.

Specifically, we’ll cover five topics:

  1. The secret weapon most A-list bloggers used to build their platforms
  2. How to get a book deal without worrying about rejection
  3. The five types of platforms and which one is right for you
  4. Why you should self-publish NOW
  5. The little-known techniques you can use to connect with anyone

And, of course, Jeff will answer your specific questions. The call will last forty-five minutes to an hour, including the Q&A portion.

How to Register

This call is FREE. You can access it LIVE by phone or a streaming web audio player. And yes, we’ll have a recording after the call, but you’ll need to register in order to get access to it.

Please note: we only have room for 3,000 people on this teleseminar. (That’s the limit imposed by our hosting company.) Therefore, you must register now to participate.

Register for the FREE Platform-Building Teleseminar

I am really excited about this free workshop. Publishing is one of my favorite topics and Jeff is a great example of what it takes to succeed as an author in the world of new media. We’re both hopeful that this free event gives you a jumpstart on building (or expanding) your platform, finding your tribe, and getting published.

If you still have questions, read the FAQs below.

FAQs

Q: What is a teleseminar?

A: Think of it as a giant conference call. You dial in (or listen via streaming web audio), along with others and listen while I share and answer questions.

Q: How much does this cost?

A: It’s free. If you choose to access the LIVE call via phone, you may incur standard long-distance charges if you choose a dial-in number that is not local to you (there are multiple dial-in number options). Other than that, no fee at all.

Q: What is the date and time?

A: The LIVE call will take place on Thursday, June 20th, at 8:00 pm Eastern Time (7:00 pm Central, 6:00 pm Mountain, 5:00 pm Pacific).

Q: How can I access the LIVE call?

A: You’ll have two options. Our call capacity is 3,000 total. Five hundred can access the call via phone, the rest via streaming web audio (listening via your computer). Access is on a first-come, first-served based on registration and which access option you chose. We will notify you prior to the call with the specific phone number and web address.

Q: I can’t make the LIVE call. Will there be a recording?

A: Yes, we will make the recording available after the LIVE call. You’ll have the option to listen to the replay online or download an MP3 file. But you must register in order to get it.

Q: How do I ask a question for you to answer during the call?

A: When you register there will be an option for you to submit a question. We’ll do our best to answer as many questions as possible during the LIVE call. However, we will likely not get to all of them. We’ll try to make sure I address common themes.

Q: Do I need any special equipment?

A: No, nothing special needed. You won’t need to download anything to access the call. If you use the dial-in access then you simply make a phone call. If you use the streaming web access then you simply open a web browser, click play, and listen. I will send the instructions to you via email.

Q: When do I get access information after I register?

A: We will send you access information via email a day or two before the call and a reminder email on the day of the call.

    This is great. Wish I could attend live, but the audio will be fantastic as well. Two of the internet’s most brilliant writers together! I’m psyched for it. The secret weapon of bloggers what I am most excited to learn about.

    • http://www.thedailyretort.com/ TorConstantino

      Interestingly, when you consider that accomplished writers such as Michael Hyatt, Jeff Goins, Jon Acuff, Dave Ramsey and Dan Miller all live in Tennessee – it must be something in the water ;-)

      Seriously, Jeff is an extremely gifted writer, but I am most impressed by his relentless commitment to his craft. I think Jeff is only surpassed by Michael Hyatt when it comes to generating top-quality content that’s given away for free.

      • http://josuemolina.com/ Josue Molina

        Yeah I noticed that. An none of them are musicians. So I think.

  • Wesley Wiley

    Looking forward to it! Just listened to Jeff on another podcast, loved what he shared about the difference between starting and committing.

    • http://michaelhyatt.com/ Michael Hyatt

      He has some amazing insights—especially for his age. ;-)

      • http://goinswriter.com/ Jeff Goins

        Thanks, Michael. I’m excited to share with your tribe. :)

        • http://goinswriter.com/ Jeff Goins

          agreed.

      • http://www.kixblogger.com/ Kix Blogger

        LOl, “for his age”

        Some people are wise beyond their years, and then some are years beyond their wisdom.

        Maybe if you grew a beard, Jeff, you would look a little older. But then again, that might be too much “red”! :-)

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

          Some are wise beyond their years, and others years beyond their wisdom. Great quote!

        • http://goinswriter.com/ Jeff Goins

          I’m TRYING! ;)

  • http://www.davebratcher.com/ Dave Bratcher

    Looking forward to learning from two of the best in the business. Thanks for facilitating the seminar.

    • http://goinswriter.com/ Jeff Goins

      Looking forward to having you, Dave!

  • Earth Lover

    I would love to participate, however I’m traveling to India to be with my family as we celebrate my father’s life at his 1st death anniversary. Would this be available online after the workshop? If so, I’ll be sure to tune in at a later date.
    Michael, THANK YOU for all that you do to make this world a better place.

    God Bless You Richly!! Kind regards, Sangita :)))

    • http://www.thedailyretort.com/ TorConstantino

      Michael’s team does a great job of providing replays of these types of events – but you still need to register for the event. All you have to do is click on the box that says “I’m unable to attend” and the link to recorded content is emailed to you directly.

      Please be sure to register – you don’t want to miss this!!

      • Earth Lover

        Done!! Thanks for your suggestions :)

  • http://www.forbenmedia.com/blog ryentzer

    I’m looking forward to this seminar. I hope to hear ways to combine my desire to serve God with my passion in web design and development.

    • http://www.thedailyretort.com/ TorConstantino

      That’s exactly one of the areas that Jeff writes about – working your passion. He’s a living case study in following your passion and turning it into a profitable lifestyle.

  • http://JonDHarrison.com/ Jonathan Harrison

    I’m looking forward to this call. I’m ready to take my platform (especially the “Life Changers” section) to a whole..’nother..level!

    • http://www.thedailyretort.com/ TorConstantino

      Jon, you won’t be disappointed. Jeff is a genuine, humble and gifted individual who will “deliver the goods” – so to speak.

      • http://JonDHarrison.com/ Jonathan Harrison

        that’s quite an endorsement…is it Thursday the 20th yet?

  • http://www.thedailyretort.com/ TorConstantino

    I’ve known Jeff since 2010 when we were both members of a blogging community started by Bryan Allain called BlogRocket that’s now named Killer Tribes. I’ve had a front-row seat to Jeff’s success – and have applauded him every step of the way.

    If you’ve never heard him speak or read any of his gold-plated content, you owe it to your platform to sign-up for this teleseminar.

    Michael, thanks so much for offering this invaluable resource to us for free!

    • http://michaelhyatt.com/ Michael Hyatt

      Thanks, Tor. It’s been fun watching Jeff succeed, hasn’t it?

      • http://goinswriter.com/ Jeff Goins

        Thanks, guys. I’m honored.

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

      I agree, Tor. So proud of his determination and passion. He’s accomplished much in a short amount of time!

  • José Luis

    As usual – great content !!! Thank you VERY much Michael :-)

    What I would LOVE to get out of this call is the following …

    What are the specific step-by-step actions that Jeff did – that launched his online business into the stratosphere.

    • http://michaelhyatt.com/ Michael Hyatt

      Great question. Thanks.

      • http://goinswriter.com/ Jeff Goins

        Yep. We are going to answer this.

    • rabbimoffic

      I know the specific steps will be instructive, but so will the overall framework. One thing Jeff has taught me, and that I have seen in his journey, me is the power of identity. Once he said he was a writer, he wrote and wrote and taught. So much of building a platform comes from committing ourselves to our purpose, and then building out from it.

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

        Yes, exactly. When it came to being a writer, he “owned” it. The most important first step.

        • Jim Martin

          Michele, the idea of Jeff “owning” the idea of being a writer was what really drew me to his work.

          • http://goinswriter.com/ Jeff Goins

            Thanks, Jim. I’m still trying to do that. Fighting against Resistance is a daily discipline.

  • http://www.anxioustogrow.com/ Alex Rogers

    After seeing the short interview between these two on youtube, to say I am excited for this webinar would be a severe understatement. Michael and Jeff, you are both huge inspirations to me, as well as many other people too. Thank you for all that you do!

    • http://michaelhyatt.com/ Michael Hyatt

      Thanks, Alex. That’s encouraging to hear!

  • http://www.asimplehaven.com/ Jenn at a Simple Haven

    I’m there! I’ve become a total evangelist for Jeff’s stuff. It’s fantastic.

    And, Michael, I’ve been enjoying your podcasts tremendously. I’ve listened to almost half of them in just a few weeks. :)

    • http://michaelhyatt.com/ Michael Hyatt

      Wow, Jenn. Thanks. I am honored that you would listen.

    • http://goinswriter.com/ Jeff Goins

      I ditto the wow. Thanks, Jenn! Really kind compliment.

  • Jacqui Washington, MBA

    Just signed up! Looking forward to the Teleseminar;)

  • http://www.danerickson.net/ Dan Erickson

    I follow Jeff’s blog and wish I could watch, but it’s graduation ceremony at the college where I teach that evening. Will you have a recording/podcast of it for later viewing?

    • http://www.thedailyretort.com/ TorConstantino

      Dan, all you need to do is register above and click the box saying you can’t attend and the link of the recording will be delivered to your inbox!

  • Clara Hinton

    Looking forward to learning the steps to making the switch from dream to reality — from thinking I’m a writer to knowing I’m a writer. I’ll be listening intently to every word — how to build that “tribe” and how to keep that tribe engaged. Most especially, I want to hear what the five platforms are and how to choose the one that is right for me.

  • Kathy Kidder

    Attendance at the live seminar is not possible for me, but I am so grateful for the audio link opportunity! Thank you in advance! I am desiring to come away with a working understanding of what is involved in building a platform, just what a platform is and how to make it work for me. Every time I think I’ve got it – I find myself fearful of overlooking and missing something that will make it possible. Somehow I know this is the direction I’m supposed to follow, it just seems intimidating at times. Thank you again!

    • Jim Martin

      Kathy, I can relate. Everytime I hear either Michael or Jeff speak regarding some aspect of building a platform, I gain some new insight or a concept finally begins to sink in. It can seem intimidating and overwhelming at times. I have found it helpful, however, to simply think about a “next step” or two that I need to take. This helps me from being overwhelmed while at the same time I can see that I am making real progress.

      • http://goinswriter.com/ Jeff Goins

        I can relate, too. I still get intimidated by all this stuff.

  • http://www.alexbarker.org/ Alex Barker

    Super pumped for this seminar! Looking forward to suck wisdom up!

    • http://goinswriter.com/ Jeff Goins

      Hopefully that you suck wisdom up instead of me just sucking. ;)

      • http://www.alexbarker.org/ Alex Barker

        Not true! You’ll do great Jeff!

  • Bosede Santos

    Thanks to two of the best for the invaluable resource, and for free! A true blessing. Hoping to learn how to be effective at combining all the social media I’m currently on and growing my platform maximally.

    • http://goinswriter.com/ Jeff Goins

      Hope I can help!
