Build an Engaged Online Audience From Scratch

With the Core Curriculum, Community, and Coaching Inside Platform University

Your Message Matters.

You feel called to share your knowledge in a way that serves the world. You took some hard knocks, you learned from them, and you want to help others avoid some of the bumps and bruises you had to experience yourself.

But how do you reach the people who need to hear what you’ve got to say? There’s so much to learn, but so little time to implement.

  • You like the idea of growing your online presence, but your time is so limited, and you feel frozen without a step-by-step plan to move forward.
  • You want to make an impact, but you’re missing a nuts-and-bolts recipe for implementing high-leverage strategies. You want to provide a service—and generate income—but you aren’t sure how to get your readers and followers to become supporters and customers.

What if you didn’t have to guess the best way to build your platform? Imagine if you could:

Narrow Your Niche and hone in on the exact people you are meant to serve.

Find Your Voice Online and learn strategies to communicate with your ideal clients and customers in a way that leaves them eager to buy from you.

Create Consistent, Transformative Content With Ease so you never struggle about what message to share with your audience or how frequently to contact them.

Monetize Your Online Platform and make a generous profit from the ideas you share and the value you provide.

Maximize Your Efficiency by implementing the habits, secrets, and techniques professional platform-builders and online business owners rely on.

Build Out the Necessary Tech Pieces without tearing your hair out or wasting hundreds of dollars on website design.

Streamline Your Strategies to grow your audience so that you’re spending your time where it yields tangible results instead of spinning your wheels.

What Our Successful Students Have to Say

"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.” —Linda Gullo
“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.” —Jackie Bledsoe
“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.” —Rocky Buckley

Now It’s Your Turn To Follow A Proven Path To Success

After supporting more than twenty thousand students over the last six years, we’ve learned a lot about what it takes to build a successful online platform.

While Platform University has been a flagship program for more than six years now, we constantly update the curriculum and student experience to make this the ONLY community you need to build a profitable online presence.

Here’s what you’ll experience when you join Platform University:

01 | Your Step-by-Step Core Curriculum

After six years of teaching more than 20,000 Platform University students, we’ve identified the key strategies that are foundational for growing an engaged online audience and a profitable platform-based business. We flew industry experts into our studio from all around the United States to create our comprehensive Core Curriculum, which we’ve developed into cohesive, sequential training modules which we regularly review to make sure they’re up-to-date.

We begin with the basics, so we can build a strong foundation together and progress into more advanced material over time. You receive immediate access to Module One upon joining, then unlock a new Module each month. This gives you the correct sequence for implementing, (rather than merely consuming) the content―and taking action! Whether you’re experienced or just starting out, Platform University provides the know-how you need to get to the next level.

Our Core Curriculum ensures that you cover the right content at the right time, and includes instruction in vital areas like developing your brand identity, building your email list, creating compelling content, shining on social media, copywriting and messaging, and launching your flagship offering online.

02 | Your Personalized Roadmap

From Day One, your platform journey is unique to you. You’ll receive access to our Step-by-Step Core Curriculum, and complete an Initial Assessment that will guide your use of our extensive Learning Library. All of our Learning Library trainings are available to you immediately upon enrollment, but the initial assessment will help you pinpoint the exact trainings that will benefit you most. There’s zero guesswork once you become a Platform University member.

03 | Your Comprehensive Learning Library

We believe your message matters, and it deserves to be shared with the world. We’re committed to helping you succeed, and we know that means giving you access to comprehensive trainings. This includes a deep and vast library of instructional how-to’s, master classes, bonuses, behind-the-scenes tours, and expert interviews on countless topics you’ll need to learn. All of our resources are at your fingertips.

04 | Your Access To Experts

We learn from the best of the best, often flying industry experts in for studio interviews—but we are also practitioners ourselves. We teach from our own personal platform experience. Hear the best advice from industry leaders and successful entrepreneurs who have researched, tested, and done what you’re aspiring to do.

05 | Your Focused Coaching

We leverage both full-time faculty and guest contributors to ensure you always have the best guidance available, no matter the topic. We have a full-time Dean, whose main priority is fostering our community and ensuring the excellence of your experience inside the program. We also have an active student community where we offer regular live office hours and bonus Q&A trainings so your specific questions are always answered.

06 | Your High-Quality Guarantee

We aim to set the standard on research-backed, high-quality content designed to give you measurable results. We only interview experts who have a proven record of success with their online platforms, so you know that the information you receive in Platform University is tried and true.

07 | Your Supportive Community

As a member of Platform University, you never have to go it alone. Our student community is a thriving hub for like-minded individuals to share inspiration, encouragement, and support. When you join, you’ll instantly have access to the knowledge, expertise, and feedback of our engaged and generous students.

“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.”—Mike Berry

“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.”—Wayne Stiles

Frequently Asked Questions

We offer a comprehensive Core Curriculum that walks you through creating an engaged audience from scratch. Our Core Curriculum leaves no stone unturned regarding what you need to know to build your blog, attract readers and followers, create irresistible offers, and sell with confidence. We meet you where you are with our onboarding questionnaire and create your custom curriculum roadmap so you waste no time learning things you already know and jump straight to the information you need. We have a built-in community of other purpose-minded people on a similar journey of building their income and impact. And we provide coaching so you always have a listening ear if you’d like support around a specific step as you grow your reach.

  • Is this a one-time fee or a monthly fee?
  • Platform University is a monthly subscription service. When you join, your card will immediately be charged $47. You will be charged again for $47 one month later, and then again every month for the duration of your membership. You can cancel anytime. There are no hidden contracts or commitments that will blindside you. We believe in proving our worth to you, each and every month, and we are confident that you’ll want to stay.

  • What kind of access will I have to the modules? Are there transcripts and audio-only options, or do I have to watch a bunch of videos?
  • We understand that people have all different types of learning preferences, and we meet you where you are. With each lesson, you’ll have the option to stream the video content straight from your device OR download the audio, video, and/or PDF transcripts and save them, wherever is most convenient for you. We give you maximum access to all our content formats so that you can listen to and view each lesson at your convenience in the way that feels most productive for you!

  • Can I access the content released at Platform University during my membership once I cancel?
  • You have full access to all the content released inside the membership during the life of your membership. However, you will no longer be able to access that content if you cancel your membership.

  • As a student, what will I have access to?
  • When you join Platform University, you immediately have access to the first module of our core curriculum and our entire learning library archive. That’s a full six years worth of 300+ training material! In addition, you’ll receive an invitation to our exclusive student community, where we host periodic live Q&A office hours.

  • Is there a long-term commitment or contract?
  • No. You are free to cancel your membership at any time. Platform University is packed with members who’ve been with us for years, because they love the program and continue to find value, month-after-month. We believe you’ll want to stay when you see how much progress you make with Platform.

  • I’m already super busy. Is this going to take up a lot of my time?
  • We recommend blocking out 30 minutes a day to work on your platform, and only spending one or two of those blocks consuming content inside Platform University. That’s less than half of 1% of your week, but that small bit of time packs a huge punch.

Platform-building takes time, period. But your membership will help you do it efficiently. You can learn a new skill on demand. You can download content and watch it on the go.

  • If you’re just beginning to create your online platform and you’re not tech-savvy, Platform University is the perfect place for you! While we offer content for students at all stages of platform-building, we pride ourselves on the ease and simplicity of our strategies. You’ll have an advantage, since you’ll learn exactly how to set up your platform the right way, from the start. That means you’ll avoid costly missteps and gain traction immediately.

Platform University is a membership experience where you’ll be equipped to build an online audience from scratch. Applying the techniques we teach canearn you way more money, and leave you far more satisfied than the Biology 101 you’re forced to take to earn a college degree.

Read this before you go...

Just in case you’re still on the fence about joining Platform University, let me give you a little backstory of how this unique program was created.

Years ago, Platform University Founder Michael Hyatt was leading a BUSY life. He was the CEO of a major publishing company, a husband, and a dad to five daughters. He loved his work but felt that he had more to contribute.

So he started blogging. Daily. For years. He got consistent, and he got persistent, and he built a massive following. Eventually, he began to monetize that following.

It was tricky at first. Some people were mad that he sold things. But he knew that he had so much value to give.

Michael cracked the code on building an engaged audience that would become a consistent customer base, and he did it by serving first. His book Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World became a New York Times Bestseller, and his blog now reaches more than one million people each month.

Michael didn’t want to keep his success to himself, though. Instead of hoarding his knowledge and expertise, he founded Platform University, and is now responsible for helping tens of thousands of students reach more people online and attain success with their platforms.

Michael has now passed the reins of Platform University to me and the rest of the Platform team, but the mission and spirit of the program remain the same: to equip you in growing an online presence that will impact the world for good while providing you with the income you need to live the lifestyle you desire.

It may sound “pie in the sky” at first, but I assure you that the information inside this program can transform your life. I’m proof! And because of our No-Brainer Money-Back Guarantee, there is zero risk for you to join.

I hope you’ll seize this opportunity and enroll in Platform University! We’re waiting to welcome you into the community, and the world is waiting for you to share the message that only you can share!

Your Dean,
