Tim Grahl



Tim Grahl is the founder of Out:think, a firm that works with authors to build their platform, connect with readers and sell more books.
He started his entrepreneurial journey ten years ago by beginning the first professional blog network in the cycling and mountain biking industries. He quickly grew those to the top of their markets and became well known across the industry, eventually selling off the properties to start a new venture.
Moving on from that, he began his own marketing and web design firm and soon focused on the publishing world. In less than four years he has become the go-to guy for top authors when it comes to building their platforms and launching books.
Tim's current client list includes top best selling authors such as Hugh Howey, Daniel Pink, Chip and Dan Heath, Jonah Berger and many others. He has successfully launched many books to the top of the New York Times and Wall Street Journal best seller lists.
