Build a tribe.

Connect with your audience.

We help academics and writers become public intellectuals.

Built for academics & writers.

Our mission is to help authors, academics, and public intellectuals build an audience and increase their reach. Public Platform was designed and built to help thought leaders build and grow their platform and their tribe.

Your voice is important.

We need public scholarship.

More than ever before, we need thoughtful public intellectuals and authors to share their work with the world and lead the conversation.

You have a distribution problem.

Your content – your scholarship – doesn’t have a quality problem. The #1 reason your good ideas don’t get noticed is because you have a distribution problem.

Lanio took our website from an information-based design into a site where a vibrant story is being told. What I appreciate about working with the Lanio team is their teaching spirit and patience.

Lanio has been an absolute delight to partner with. John and the Lanio team have helped our organization to think more creatively, and to bring fresh approaches that we desperately needed. I would recommend Lanio to any organization that desires to venture far beyond where they are at today, in order to optimize mission attainment.
