Bloomington, IND (PRWEB) May 21, 2012
WestBow Press, the strategic self-publishing division of the world’s largest Christian publisher, Thomas Nelson, Inc., will celebrate the release of Michael Hyatt’s latest book, “Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World,” with the Wow2Win Twitter contest. The Grand Prize winner will receive a one-hour private consultation with the Thomas Nelson chairman to discuss the best ways to market their book.
In Platform, Michael Hyatt, who’s also a well-known professional speaker and the founder of the widely read “Intentional Leadership” blog says the key to getting noticed is to “start with the wow.” “Before authors can effectively build a following and start selling books, they’ve got to have a compelling, meaningful message that’s worthy of people’s time and attention,” Hyatt said.
“Michael Hyatt is one of the most influential thought-leaders in the publishing world, and his new book ‘Platform’ is an incredible resource for authors interested in marketing their books and creating a presence online,” said Keith Ogorek, senior vice-president of global marketing of Author Solutions, Inc.
The Wow2Win contest will be hosted on the @WestBowPress Twitter page during the week of May 21–25. To enter, authors will need a Twitter account and must follow @WestBow Press. In a single 140-character tweet, authors should explain why their book is great and “wow-worthy,” and include the contest hashtag #wow2win. Authors must also complete and submit the official contest entry form available on the WestBow Press contest page. Additionally, WestBow Press will be giving away five copies of “Platform” at random to entrants.
