Your platform is the book that holds your story. Of course, you have to make sure that your book is on the right shelves so that your intended audience can find you. But whatever shelf you find your self on whether it is Google+, Facebook, Twitter or any of the others you can't just sit there and collect dust. 

Don't think about how many books you are trying to sell or how many clients you are trying to attract. Think about how your audience's interests and needs can fit into your story. If your book is about a young writer finding his way in Paris and honing his craft (A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway) then write about all the amazing people you met along the way, the places that you visited and your view of that moment in your life. Open your mind and share with your audience who you are, your creative process, ideas that come to you and much, much more. Create an experience that your readers can relate to and be sincere. You will find that the platform that you build will not only help you sell your book or services but it also will create a valuable conversation that will allow you to grow, while providing your audience with something worthwhile.
