Platform Building – Success Accelerator
Many would-be authors still think it’s the time of Mark Twain, Hemingway or Virginia Woolf:
if they just write a good enough book, the public will find it, buy it and tell their friends to buy it. Not true!
Here’s a splash of cold water: more than 268,000 new books were published last year. Most of them were self-published.
The chances of the public being able to find any one book – whether it’s done through CreateSpace or Random House – are just about microscopic. YOU have to accept the reality of modern publishing and DO something to get your book noticed.
Big publishers like Harper Collins, Simon and Schuster and McGraw Hill invariably ask agents the same question before they’ll even consider a book: “What’s the author’s platform?“ Only once that question has been satisfied will they care about your content. That’s because they know the odds are against any one book even being found, UNLESS THE AUTHOR IS OUT THERE making an impression on the world BEFORE the book is published.
As a future author, or someone whose book just got published, you MUST take 100% responsibility today for drawing attention to it, yourself and your message BEFORE, DURING and AFTER publication.
This is no longer an option. YOU MUST take responsibility for building a PLATFORM right now, starting today.
Luckily, it’s easier than you think if you know what to do, how to do it and when to do it.
I’ve been a literary agent since mankind lived in caves, it seems. I have seen so many changes! It make sad that the full burden of “proof of concept” now rests on the author’s shoulders. But it does. You have to show up in my office with a platform growing beneath you, because I can’t sell it to anyone unless you have that. Neither can any other agent in the USA. (I’m speaking exclusively about nonfiction books intended for adult readers, not fiction, juvenile or academic books.)
I’ve been lecturing, advising, consulting and guiding clients and future clients in the specifics of platform building since 1989. In 2012, I conducted a series of extremely successful, well-received hour long live teleconferences on platform building. I got lucky – my students were bright, capable, open-minded people. The courses were magical! We recorded them and edited them into a “Best Of” edition.
We named them (accurately): “Success Accelerator: How to Build Your Platform Faster, Better & Easier.”
YOU can have a copy of the best of what I’ve gleaned in 24 years, 11 best sellers, 1,200+ rights deals, and teaching book marketing to tens of thousands of authors at all levels.

The importance of LIST BUILDING – how to get and grow a group of people who WANT you to have their names and email addresses so you can keep them up-to-date on your book, your topic and your plans…and your success (A VITAL factor in how successful your book can possibly become!!!).
SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING – not just “You gotta get on Facebook”, which you already know. But WHY it matters for authors and HOW TO THINK LIKE AN AUTHOR every time you post so you build toward YOUR goal – a super successful book – and never waste another keystroke on silliness.

Is this right for you?
I only work with authors and/or speakers, so my work is only for those craving success as an author or speaker.
Like you, I am interested in only the shortcuts, the easiest, cheapest, fastest, most intelligent ways of building a platform (which includes all 4 of the above and more) and leveraging it into a successful book.
The stuff I teach works whether your book isn’t out yet, is self-published, is not sold to a publisher yet, was published in the last ten years, or you’re still looking for an agent. It just plain works.
The course is just $79. It’s guaranteed – forever – or your money back. That means, it really works if you do what I advise. (Surprise! Surprise! If you don’t do it, it doesn’t work – but you can still have your money back.)
You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make him drink. (Or her!) Here’s what I’ve learned: the authors who believe their work is so good it will somehow magically rise to the top of the tsunami of words happening in this country are going to be disappointed. The people who realize that the publishing industry is an industry – that is, a business – and business is in business to make a profit - THOSE are the authors who will win this game.
