Building a platform is the long-game strategy many successful entrepreneurs use to build a successful, sustainable business. This is a long game, and it won’t happen overnight, but the benefits of building a platform can be the difference between a small company and a media conglomerate. What you are doing is building a media company that you can monetize.

What is a platform? A platform is a medium of how you communicate with your audience.

Why is it important to have one? you own and control it, owned media vs paid or earned media, ability to turn a cash faucet off and on at will, you can send and direct people to different offers and places

Why is it important to own and control your platform? you can lose your social media platform, use social media to build your database,

1. Identify the best platform for you – if you like to write a newsletter or blog, if you like audio do a podcast, if you like to be on camera do videos (not just on YouTube. It is on your own platform also)

2. Determine if the platform will be based on you and your personality or will it be faceless? It’s easier to sell a brand not based on you.

3. Create an exit plan before you start. Easier to sell if the platform operates without you.

4. Drive traffic and build your database – use social media and other tactics to drive traffic to your database that you own

5. Monetize your platform- Offer solutions to your audiences’ problems – problem-solution- the result, what problems does your audience has, and how you can solve them.
