Platform University Is Now Officially Open!

I’m pleased to announce that Platform University is officially open. My team has been working on it for months, and I am so excited to be able to share it with you.

Platform University

I won’t repeat what we have on the Platform University site, but I would like to encourage you to check it out today.

  • If you want more visibility for your product, service, brand, or cause …
  • If you want want to turbo-charge your platform-building efforts …
  • If you want to avoid making the same dumb mistakes others have made …
  • If you are ready to experience the benefits of having a platform sooner rather than later …

Then Platform University is for you.

And when you join this week, you can take advantage of the Early Bird discount, which ends on Tuesday, January 29th. (We will NEVER offer this introductory deal again.)

There has never been a better time to build or expand your personal platform. This year—2013—could be your year to make it happen. My colleagues and I are here to help.

Question: What would a platform make possible for you? You can leave a comment by clicking here.

    Micheal,
    I met you last year at Blissdom and so enjoyed hearing you speak.  I have a lifestyle blog that’s grown alot over the past 5 years but I’ve never been very intentional about my goals for my site.   I made a New Year resolution to be more intentional with my writing, which led me to a 3 week frenzy of down-right stalking your blog and podcasts and everything you have to say on the topic of writing/leading/building platform.  I also bought two of your ebooks and can’t wait to get started on writing my first book proposal.  After a lot of soul searching and listening to your words, I made a hard decision to self-publish my first ebook, which launches this week, despite the fact that an agent expressed interest in it one week before the launch. Your podcasts on getting published were invaluable to me.   I so appreciate your transparency and approachability.  You have a unique way of sharing your gifts and insight and  I wanted to say a big hearty thank you for all you do.  Can’t wait to check out your newest venture.  
    Bless you and your family in the new year,
    Edie Wadsworth

    Michael, it is somehow OT, but I would like to say how amazed I am by your way of challening yourself each time and reinventing new ways to communicate your skills (and make money out of them). Congratulations!

    • http://michaelhyatt.com/ Michael Hyatt

      Thanks, Elisa. I have a great time of people who help.

    This is awesome Michael.

    I did find a weird sentence in the FAQ – What will I receive every month as a member?

    Sometimes Michael will teach these himself, but other times I’ll be co-teaching these classes with other high profile guests.
    That doesn’t make sense as the person changes from third to first. Just thought I would share that.

    See you inside Platform U.

    • http://michaelhyatt.com/ Michael Hyatt

      Thanks for catching that, Matt. We’re on it!

    Woot! So excited to see you move forward with this Michael. Can’t wait to see the great things that will be coming from this program.

    • http://michaelhyatt.com/ Michael Hyatt

      Thanks, Joe. I’m really excited.

    A platform for me would most certainly increase awareness throughout the world. You can be called of God to do something for Him but i am grateful we have all been given creative abilities to get on and make it happen.

    I am so excited about Platform University.  Michael, your blog has been instrumental in showing me how I can have a larger impact and influence.  This has been inspiring, motivating and rejuvenating for my passion for helping. I am signed up, eager and very appreciative of what you have in store for us all. In case it is not on the radar, I would truly love to see a Platform University iPhone/iPad app. With all great material I anticipate that I will need to reference it over and over again

    When is the first master class?

    This is such a fantastic idea, Michael. I truly believe this will be a game changer for many, many people.

    Hey Michael, two quick questions:

    1. If I join can I quit at any time or am I locked in for a certain period of time?

    2. Will you be offering your Platform Theme at a special rate to the people who attend Platform University?

    Thanks

    I’m in!  Platform University is going to be awesome.   I am looking forward to learning and interacting with other members. 

    Thanks for making this possible!

    Hi Michael, this is a great idea.  I plan on joining.  I started blogging in 2007 and stopped after a year.  I wish I had not.  A few months ago I started another blog, and my readership is growing. It’s doubled to 184 unique page views (does not include mine, but does include my mothers) in three months.  I’m looking forward to learning from you.  Thanks for leading!!

    Nice site.  A platform will bring more attention to my books and music, which in turn will allow more people to find personal value from my work about healing from abuse and personal tragedy, as well as entertaining stories and songs.

    Hi Michael,
    I just signed up for PlatformUniversty and I am so excited. I have been writing a book review blog for several years. I read your book and found it very informative.
    I really think I need an accoutability group like this to keep me focused on building a platform and moving forward with my goals.
    Thank you so much for offering an affordable program like Platform University. I am 100% in and plan to give this my best effort!

    Looking forward to this opportunity to be given an inside look at how you have built your platform Michael.  I believe I have a story to tell with the way I was born and the life I have experienced.  Believing that a platform like what is presented here, will give me a greater chance of getting my message out.  Thanks again Michael.  Appreciate what you provide.

  • Margaret Feinberg

    Congratulations, Michael! Praying for this journey!

    I just signed up. The quality, volume and format of the content look excellent! 

    I write and market proposal packages for getting approval of telecommuting, job sharing, a six-week sabbatical, and other flexible work arrangements.  So an expansion of my biz platform would make it possible to improve the quality of life and family time for many more busy professionals. That’s my mission.

     Michael,  I look forward with a surge of hope and optimism to the significant expansion Platform University will provide this year.  I dream of my writing and speaking becoming meteors shooting across a clear summer sky.  Right now they’re hobbling, eager students peering  into the lens of the telescope at the winter sky, in awe of what is coming. 

    Michael, thank you for encouraging us and investing in the sky of a thousand constellations.

    Hello Michael,

    While I am happy and will most likely join your Platform University program, I am eagerly waiting for your GetNoticed! WordPress theme — can you shed some light on its expectancy?

    Thanks,
    William Shaker

    • http://michaelhyatt.com/ Michael Hyatt

      No, I’m afraid I can’t. We have not yet announced a ship date.

  • Jim Martin

    Congratulations Michael!  After signing up, I thought about the tremendous amount of work you must have done to produce this.  Looking forward to experiencing this.

    • http://michaelhyatt.com/ Michael Hyatt

      Thanks, Jim. Glad to have you aboard!

    Hello,

    I only have a question before deciding to jump in; I’m French and I haven’t decided yet if I would blog in English (which I need to improve) or in French (which I no longer use that much…).
    My question is simple, is Platform designed to work with all marketplaces or designed only for the American one?

    Thanks in advance for your answers.

    • http://michaelhyatt.com/ Michael Hyatt

      The principles will work anywhere. I guarantee it.
