You have an important message to share with the world—maybe a business, a ministry, a cause, a book, or a career to promote. But where do you start? How do you stand out? What are the right tools to use, and how do you keep up with the changes in the marketplace (and technology)?
Many talented people just like you are struggling to stand out online. The virtual marketplace is crowded, and you deserve a trusted guide to get you from point A to point B.
That's exactly why Platform University® is such an important resource today.
Michael Hyatt understands the unique set of challenges facing aspiring platform-builders trying to grow an online audience today.
As the New York Times bestselling author of Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World, Michael reaches over 1 million people a month through his blog, MichaelHyatt.com, and is consistently ranked in the Top 50 of iTunes Business for his podcast, Lead to Win.
After the success of the Platform book, Michael founded Platform University®, helping tens of thousands of students reach more people online and attain success with their platforms.
"Platform is absolutely essential to delivering value. As a big fan of Michael Hyatt, I'm excited he's sharing this with you. Your job? Learn about this and implement it. Your success depends on it."
Perfect for bloggers, authors, speakers, and those who want to be. This book is the FIRST place to start if you are at all interested in sharing a message with the world through an online platform. Michael Hyatt provides a load of pragmatic information for a successful platform. He is also the leading authority on platform building. It has been absolutely essential to getting my platform and blog off the ground. If it weren't for this book, I wouldn't be anywhere near where I am now. I was able to easily apply the information provided in Platform and notice results right away!
As a small business owner I've read quite a few books on branding and social media. This one tops them all. Well written with practical tips and ideas that everyone can use. I can honestly say I will be using much of what he recommended.
As a public speaker, digital marketer, and a political pundit, I wish I had read this book years ago. This is a great book for budding authors, bloggers wanting to increase their readership, salespeople wanting to understand how to operate in this new digital noisy world we live in and executives in need of insights on how to lead in this new world.
Inside Platform University, we give you the exact sequence you need to follow to grow your audience fast.
Our new step-by-step core curriculum will guide you from a humble beginner to an established expert with an engaged online following.
We won't throw a bunch of information at you and hope something sticks. Instead, we'll take you by the hand and walk you through this proven formula for success.
Spending just 30 minutes a day with this process can give you the influence, impact, and income you desire. But this process is only available to the students inside Platform University.
John Meese was one of the first Platform University students back in 2013, and quickly established himself as an up-and-coming platform-builder over before he became the full-time Dean of Platform University.
Using everything he learned inside Platform University as a student, John launched his own blog and podcast, built a dedicated following, and leveraged his relationship with his audience to sell online courses, coaching services, and software products—quitting his “day job” after less than a year on the scene.
Now he’s committed to helping other Platform University students achieve the same level of success—along with a list of hand-picked guest contributors that includes industry experts like Pat Flynn, Ray Edwards, and Bryan Harris.
We start with the basics, even though we know you already have a head start. That way, we can build a strong foundation together and progress towards more advanced material over time.
We believe your message matters, and deserves to be shared with the world. We’re committed to helping you succeed, and believe that we only succeed if you do first.
We learn from the best of the best, often flying industry experts in for studio interviews—but we are also practitioners ourselves, and teach from our own personal platform experience.
We leverage both full-time faculty and guest contributors to ensure you always have the best guidance available, no matter the topic.
We aim to set the standard on research-backed, high-quality content designed to give you measurable results. That's why we interview experts who have a proven record of success with their own online platforms.

"Where do I even being with the impact that Platform University has made on my life and career? Since joining in 2013, my blog, Confessions of an Adoptive Parent, has become a global brand and voice for foster and adoptive parents worldwide. What began as a small dream is now read by more than 100,000 people in 22 different countries every month. Along with that, we launched a successful self-care parenting course and a membership site for parents that launched with 400 members last month. I also have signed a traditional book contract and get to travel all around North America, yearly, and speak at conferences and seminars for parents. I credit Platform U for helping me to get to this place. I can confidently say that concepts in Platform U work! Big time. I'm living proof."
"Thanks to Platform University for encouraging me to learn more. I now have a fun WordPress site, enjoy blogging (for the last two years) and love podcasting. Thanks to Michael and his team, I have been able to listen and learn about digital media, writing, and connecting with others online and around the world! While I still am a psychotherapist, I have expanded into coaching online as well. Thank you."
"One week after I launched my membership site, I had 500 members and a new career as an entrepreneur. I owe what I learned to Michael Hyatt and Platform University. Believe me, this stuff works."
"I made $16,000 in 60 days once I dialed into my audience and started selling products and consulting services with my platform."
"Platform U has been a real blessing in my life, I've met so many wonderful people that have become friends, mastermind partners, and business associates -- joining 'the U' was one of the smartest and best decisions I ever made. I've gone through a very intentional reinvention over the past few years, from consulting with large corporate clients to working with solo entrepreneurs. Specifically, I help experts (consultants, coaches, strategists, advisors, practitioners, etc.) turn their knowledge into high-priced ($3,000 - 10,000+) group programs -- and successfully market and sell them."
"I have seen amazing growth on my site since joining Platform University. My unique monthly visitors have increased 49% and my email list has more than doubled. I've also become a regular contributor for the Huffington Post and have signed two publishing deals with LifeWay. I'm so excited to impact more men and families with my message thanks to the growth I've experienced since joining Platform U."
