This may seem like a book slightly outside my usual recommendations, but is definitely worth checking out. Especially if you’re a blogger, or any kind of communicator, you should look into getting Michael Hyatt’s Platform this week since he is offering 7 free bonuses:
- A video series expanding on the core topics of Platform
- A video on why now is the best time to be an author
- 2 audio sessions from an upcoming series on how to get published
- Writing a Winning Non-Fiction Book Proposal ebook
- Writing a Winning Fiction Book Proposal ebook
- All the digital editions of Platform
- An audio version of Platform
Michael goes into much more detail about the value ($375.98) of each of these items on his blog. The Writing A Winning Non-Fiction Book Proposal is worth the investment alone. I had actually just purchased the eBook a couple of weeks ago. When I saw this special, I asked if I could have my money refunded since now you could the book for free with this special, and I was told “Absolutely!”
All you have to do is purchase the book, and then email your receipt to email@example.com. I did it Monday, and even though Amazon is a little behind on getting them shipped out, I was immediately emailed a link to the bonus content and had downloaded the eBook to my Kindle shortly after that.
After reading through about half of it, I think it is definitely worth the investment if you want to improve your communication skills. I know for me that is an area I really need to grow in. I learned a lot things worth saying and communicating while in seminary, but I need to polish my delivery and ability to connect with an audience. This book offers very practical advice on how to do that, especially as it relates to blogging. Since I would also love to distill my thoughts into a book one day, there is much valuable advice here on that as well.
So, if you’re a blogger, you need to pick up this book. If you’re not, you might still want to look into it if you do anything on a regular basis that relies on your ability to communicate. At least right now until Friday, you’re getting an incredible value for less than $15. I’m glad I did, and hopefully you’ll start seeing the fruits of the insights I’m gathering in the coming weeks and months here on the blog!
