Before the Beginning
You are peering into a book that is offering to help you build a bridge from having little or no online presence, to existing online in a meaningful way. An online presence is often referred to as an online platform. This term online platform is used as an umbrella term to describe the combination of all the online devices which are being used to help make your works known.
A platform typically has two parts 1) The physical components, such as: a blog, podcast and social media channels 2) The people whom you have influence on, such as: members of a group or a club you are part of, your social media followers, blog subscribers and podcast listeners. Your platform ultimately is the people you have influence on, but without the physical means of reaching out, it would be difficult to connect with them.
Considering that you have this material in your hands, I suspect you are in the shoes of having little knowledge about how to build your online platform. I was in similar shoes not long ago—they can feel a bit clunky and may seem too big to fill. Building an online platform may appear to be a task only for the “techy” folks. However, if the required steps are laid out in a manageable fashion, these are shoes that even the least tech savvy person can grow into.
About the Author
Melanie has an appetite for sharing the principles of living for purpose. She is passionate in living her calling and equally passionate in helping others live theirs. What fuels her works? The combination of her experience of living without purpose, with the beautiful reality of what life has to offer when living with it.
If Melanie is not found in front of her computer compiling her next blog, story or techi manual, you may find her at the end of her fly fishing rod, or banging on her drum set.
