5 Steps to Building Your Platform [Infographic]

I thought it would be cool to create an infographic for my new book, Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World. Thanks to Dave Whitlock of Principle Design for creating this for me. Click here to download the full-size PDF.

    I love it! Reading and listening to “Platform” now. Downloaded this to keep me on track with where I am in the platorm-building journey…

    Thanks for ALL the amazing content Michael.

    Looks like it would be the focus and outline for a good seminar/class to me

    Had a conversation with a friend today, the leader and founder of Step Seven a Christian-based addiction recovery ministry here in Parker, CO. He’s Michael’s age, but fully admitted once again his ignorance of how to build a platform, especially the use of social media. I love Tom and he’s a huge inspiration in my life. Therefore, I became Platform Evangelist. I told him in our short ride to run an errand this morning, “This book is perfect for you! You want to grow the ministry, this is the way to do it.”

    As soon as we returned to his office I brought up this page and left it for him to check out. It’s perfect, because it offers pretty much all the information he needs at a glance as a follow up post my “evangelism”.  I like it.

    Thanks, Michael! I really like the infographic and I’m very excited about reading your book. I do have a question–I didn’t receive the special offer downloads after I submitted my receipt. I did get the email verification which I thought I completed…but maybe it didn’t go through? Thanks so much for looking into this!

    Good and clear overview of the book/message.  I went through the “bonus” videos and will be getting to the book after my current one(s) are done.  Looking forward to it. 
    Dave did an excellent job on this. 
    Thank you Michael.

    K, bye

    Excited as your new book arrived this afternoon.

    Okay, I know you Mr. Awesome when it comes to building platforms and you probably receive thousands of compliments, but I just wanted to add to it by saying, you are the bomb Michael Hyatt! I am having a hard time putting your book down, my highlighter has run out of ink, and I accidentally shushed my husband (it was a knee jerk reaction before I realized how disrespectful that was) on the way home from church tonight. My time for reading your newest book was limited   as I needed to intentionally focus back in on my family when we arrived home after spending a wonderful afternoon together. I am setting the alarm early to devour some more nuggets of knowledge and wisdom as I am shooting for the stars.

    Thanks for helping me help others to also Live Beyond Awesome!

    I don’t have hard stats but they say 80% or more of us are visual learners. I am one of them!

    I loved the visual summary because it showed me the key points and the major steps and sections of the platform. I am looking forward to reading it.

  • Dwwelton

    Great infographic and even better book…I am reading it and also “The $100 Startup” right now…”The $100 Startup” is excellent…but “Platform” is even BETTER.  Read them both!

  • Rachel Duhon

    The info-graphic is highly engaging! I’ve read past Chapter 8 and it is so fabulous! Can’t wait to dive into the rest. I’m taking so many notes along the way. Thanks Michael Hyatt!

    I am currently reading with excitement the book after the seminar in WPB Fla. last week. I am so new to internet “communication”, and I do desire to know this in order to build my platform. I have done so much research into “internet Marketing”, etc. that I have been so confused more than ever. However, once I started reading, studying, following Platform it has made things clearer, and has given me direction which I believe I can now do this.

    I think the inforgraphic is great. It goes along very well with what I’m learning through your book.

    Thank you,

    Good stuff – information overload on your site for me (good though).  Thanks for all your doing and giving.  I have a problem with choosing which platform I’m most excited and interested in building.  I will keep learning and growing from your info thanks!

    You could do better. Yes, it’s colorful. But where are the numbers? I may be the only one who thinks this, but when I think of infographics, I think of what ESPN and SI magazine does with facts and figures, like this http://atl.as/inf0graph1c
