Free 45-minute consultation: Want to work one-on-one? Have some questions about your writing/publishing/platform?
As part of the Fuel Edition of The Platform Firestarter, I’m including a free 45-minute phone/Skype consultation. You get to pick the agenda, and I’ll work with you personally to help figure out what the next year looks like for you.
Want to grow your own blog? Need help planning a marketing strategy for your upcoming book launch? Just want to see what all the fuss is about “building a platform online?”
Use the consultation for that — and more. I’ll prepare some questions to get you thinking about your plans, your future, your goals, and we’ll go from there!
Manage Your Day-to-Day: Build Your Routine, Find Your Focus, and Sharpen Your Creative Mind:
This book changed the way I do “productivity.”
Are you over-extended, over-distracted, and overwhelmed? Do you work at a breakneck pace all day, only to find that you haven’t accomplished the most important things on your agenda when you leave the office?
The world has changed and the way we work has to change, too. With wisdom from 20 leading creative minds, Manage Your Day-to-Day will give you a toolkit for tackling the new challenges of a 24/7, always-on workplace.
From Amazon: “This is one of those books that you want to keep around and refer to when you feel you’re getting bogged down with “stuff”. It’s a collection of essays/articles on time management and life/work balance from various authors. Some are practical, others based on scientific studies but all are easy to read and full of ideas for working and living better. Many of the articles refer to creative work, particularly writing, but in my opinion, all work is creative and these tips will work for everyone.”
Maximize Your Potential: Grow Your Expertise, Take Bold Risks & Build an Incredible Career:
Can you step outside your comfort zone? Bounce back from failure? Build new skills? Tapping into your true potential is no idle endeavor. It demands creativity, dedication, and a whole lot of hustle.
With wisdom from 21 leading creative minds, 99U’s Maximize Your Potential will show you how to generate new opportunities, cultivate your creative expertise, build valuable relationships, and take bold, new risks so that you can utilize your talents to the fullest.
From Amazon: “After buying this book, I wasted little time in getting through it. I love the strategies put forth by the writers in the book. This is not a “principles and theory on how to grow potential as a creative type” kind of book. This is a real “how-to” book. The level of detail is just right, such that you can take some of the strategies listed in the book and start implementing them in your own unique way.
When reading the book, I’d recommend reading it with one eye keeping a lookout for stuff that you can try immediately, and stuff that you might want to try in the future. I’d also look at it as a “basis manual” – it’s got specific strategies indeed, but as creative types, we can iterate and experiment using those strategies as the foundation.”
The Blogging Writer: 2014 Productivity Planner:
This book is brand-spankin’ new! I haven’t even “officially” released it yet, but you can get your hands on the beta edition, first-print spiral bound version. I’m only printing a few of these, since they were originally going to be for my own personal use, but I thought I’d see how it does in this bundle first.
Featuring tips, tricks, and advice to get your platform off the ground, and inspirational quotes from well-known writers, The Blogging Writer is the perfect mix of motivational support for the writer who also blogs — or the blogger who wants to self-publish!
Don’t forget — this baby is a planner first and foremost, so The Blogging Writer features a 12-month calendar, weekly task lists and time investment planners, and plenty of space to jot down your goals, desires, dreams, ideas, etc.
Don’t miss out on this one — I’m not sure what I’ll do with it, but there’s a good chance this is the only way to get it!
The Platform Firestarter: Fuel Edition:
If you’re ready to take the leap and launch a professional-grade platform, the Fuel Version is the answer you’re looking for.
A great fire needs fuel, and the Fuel Edition is the fuel that will keep your platform burning and spreading like a wildfire.
You’re going to receive everything from the Tinder and Kindling packages. However, since this is as good as it gets, and I’ve thrown in something extra special!
Also, remember that this package includes a free 45-minute consultation. That’s a $200 value alone, but it’s included within The Platform Firestarter, Fuel Edition.

Expert Blogging: How to Build A Blog for Readers:
Have you tried blogging to build your platform, author brand, or business, but can’t seem to generate traffic? Have you struggled with how to build a blog that really attracts attention?
Expert Blogging features 101 questions and feedback meant to inspire, guide, and channel your blogging vision, from leading prolific and well-known bloggers.
From Amazon: “Nick Thacker’s unique approach set me up to take responsibility for my part in the process of building my own business. I easily related the questions to my own experience and wished I had this guide when I first started blogging three years ago. The questions listed provided a solid framework for approaching my own business plan. The questions are practical, clear and logical. The language is simple , direct and realistic.
Though much of the information was familiar, I learned a few new terms just by perusing this once-i.e., pillar content, USP. Also I have heard about Alexa.com and plan to check that out. So it served to reinforce what I already know while motivating me to search deeper…”
- The Dead-Simple Guide to Amazing Headlines
- The Dead-Simple Guide to Pillar Content
- The Dead-Simple Guide to Guest Posts
From Amazon: “I really appreciate the work that Nick has put into these three dead-simple guides. I’ve been blogging regularly for five years, and have read a lot of posts on headlines and professional blogging. In these guides, Nick takes all those posts and gives you the basics that you need, with a bit more value added on. For one, I suffer from “headline” and “SEO” fatigue, always being reminded how little it matters how well I write if no one clicks through. I was pleased to see Nick’s emphasis on good content behind the headline, and a license to all but ignore the search bots (Finally!). Write for content, not keyword-cramming.”
