The first step in building your platform is to decide what your want your platform to say about who you are and what you have to offer.
Are you and author?
Do you have a product?
Are you a web designer?
Are you a copywriter?
Are you a publicist?
Are you a freelance writer?
Are you a marketer?
This is by no means a complete list of possibilities for platforms that showcase what you have to offer people who visit your online platform.
Consider how you will tell your story online. Is a website with a blog, a solo blog, and then what about social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and others best for getting your story online and in front of people to start creating relationships.
It’s hard to sell to people without them trusting you. You build trust through relationships and engagement with visitors to your platform.
Just like in life, it takes time to build relationships and trust. It takes patience and perseverance to make it online the right way. There are no shortcuts to building trust, you must prove your trust worthiness.
If you’re like me, long on ideas but short on cash, not wanting to go into debt to create your plat form, there are ways to create your platform using free sites.
You will have to choose which free platform resource(s) is right for you. Yes there is a learning curve since most will be Do-It-Yourself (DIY).
You’re probably thinking free means using the same templet as someone else, which is true, but it is about what you have to say on your platform that counts.
It is your content that will score your position on search engines and drive traffic to your platform if you are willing to put in the work required to get your platform into the online world call the Internet.
Your age or when you started doesn’t make a difference, you just need to start and work at it and learn even if you can afford to pay some one to build your platform for you. You should learn bout your platform even if you aren’t the one who built it. Learn some coding and learn about the host of your platform so you you can modify it if you have to.
Not knowing what’s going on in your platform can cause you problems with search engines.
Your content and frequency of fresh content is what rates with search engines and drives traffic with relevant content to what people are searching for.
How often you update your platform with fresh content is up to you but the more often.

Today’s society is one that uses the Internet more than any other source for quick searching of information and purchases.
There must be some way to connect with customers and keep the business in the forefront of their thoughts when considering a new purchase or mentioning a business to someone. Word of mouth is still the best form of advertising.
Imagine having a platform that your customers can an offer to someone who needs what your business has. This brings in to pay not just having a platform, but a relevant and interactive platform. Interactive is the sense that your platform is easy to navigate, easy for customers and potential customers to find what they are looking for, also a simple and easy way to contact the business directly.
As part of interactivity, a map that shows directions to your business is a requirement unless you work strictly online and customers don’t come to you. A simple relevant easy to remember domain for your business is necessary when people are searching on the Internet, or handheld device.
It does take time to build a platform; not spending the time required can diminish the effectiveness of your platform. You can find businesses like Dell, Toyota, P&G, and many small businesses using social media platforms beside their Web site.
Every business considering developing a platform also needs to consider using more than one. By monitoring their platforms, businesses are able to see which platform works better, and spend time enhancing that platform. The point is, never rely on just one platform for your business.
Businesses need to be in front of potential customers and easy reachable by search and customer satisfaction to receive word of mouth recommendations. Using the social media platforms to connect with customers, businesses can respond quickly to anything that a customer or potential customer may wish a response to; this interaction can goes a long way toward improving customer relations.
