Most writers these days are trying to build their platform. The problem is, how?!
At the same time, most writers I know don’t want to spend a lot of time thinking about how to build their platform. They want to spend time on their writing!
Daily Challenges So You Can Focus on Your Writing
The Platform Starter Pack takes the thinking and indecision out of platform building. Through simple, practical challenges, you can focus on your writing while we tell you exactly what to do to build your platform.
Here are a few fun and practical examples of the challenges you might see in the Platform Starter Pack:
- Post a quirky tweet about your life. Here’s an example: “Finally tweeting for the first time. No really, I’m making bird noises outside my front door. People are staring. It’s awkward.”
- Write a blog post about the five best books in your genre (and if you’re really bold, include your book in the list!).
- Ask another member of the course if you can interview them (we’ll even give you his or her name). Email them eight questions and then post their responses on your blog.
And many more!
About the Teacher
When I began building my platform in 2007, I had no idea what I was doing. I created a blog, but it took me dozens of hours to set it up. There were so many plugins and widgets and strange codes, seemingly, in other languages!
Ever since, I have been growing my platform incessantly. As of 2013, my websites have over 30,000 subscribers, 120,000 unique visitors per month, and some of my books are #1 Amazon Bestsellers. My platform has even enabled me to write articles for national magazines and books for business and cultural leaders. I don’t say this to brag, but to show you how powerful a platform can be to your writing career.
The good news is that you don’t have to accomplish all of this on your own, as I did. This course will help you lay the foundation to your own publishing success faster than anything I did on my own.
My goal with this resource is to save you those hundreds of hours of research and indecision that I went through to make my platform look professional, connect well with readers, and act as the catalyst for my publishing efforts.
I hope the Platform Starter Pack helps you become a better, more informed, and more professional writer. More than anything, though, I hope it helps you reach the people who need to hear your message.
