The social media real estate you put time into is as important as the suburb you invest in. The right place at the right price is what gives good returns. For time-poor professionals looking to start out in social media the sheer number of platforms to choose from can feel overwhelming – LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest, Google Plus? It’s a bit like selecting the ‘all suburbs’ search when you are trying to find somewhere to live. While I am loathe to suggest one platform to the exclusion of others (because together they create an amplification effect) if you’re a professional or need to reach high net worth individuals then research suggests that a great place to live is LinkedIn. This is why.
