Vanished!

Well we are not talking about investment’s, although a sound investment strategy certainly includes diversification.

What Mars Dorian is talking about, I should say is developing a winning strategy for your business online by not putting all of your faith into one single platform like Facebook or any other one.

Seriously, I cringe every time someone focuses heavily on building their online presence on a platform they don’t own.

Instead of worrying about getting email subscribers and customers, they obsess about getting likes and followers on Facebook and Twitter.
