by Michael Hyatt,
“Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World” takes readers behind the scenes, into the new world of social media success. Michael Hyatt is the author of this book. Michael is a professional blogger, author, and speaker whose blog is consistently ranked in the top three for Productivity, Leadership, Publishing, and Social Media Marketing. Hyatt’s depth of knowledge, his practical tips, and examples that resulted in his own success make his message compelling and strong. Yet, he never talks down to the reader. His book is chock full of useful information for a person setting out to create a brand, blog and social media platform for that brand/blog.
It provides incredibly simple, step by step stuff. If you are under 30 and/or already use Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc., you will skim by maybe 10% of the book. If you aren’t active in social media already, this will be incredibly helpful. It doesn’t get too nitty gritty into the details, but it gives you a great outline for the first year or so of blogging/developing a brand so that you can be specific about what you need to research/look into more for each moment in that first year or so.
