Every year, there is speculation about who the next big social media network will be. There are plenty of new ones out there but I believe it’s a problem of “if the shoes don’t fit, you won’t wear them”. If you go too broad to try to cover a larger demographic, it doesn’t seem to fit anyone well and “The Next New Big Thing” is “The I Never Heard of It Thing”. The key to successful social media networks is to find a niche and design it for those that live, work and breathe that niche. If you give them all they want and need to express themselves and build a community, they will take it from there. InvestaSpace has done exactly that for the entrepreneur, inventor, startup or investor with their beautifully designed platform and I think it just may be the next new big social media network.
Taking a Notch out of the Niche Entrepreneur Market
Investaspace was built BY entrepreneurs FOR entrepreneurs, inventors, startups and investors so the niche is super focused and exciting especially to people who build their businesses on relationships and partnerships, like I do. And as Gary Vaynerchuk, who I consider to be “The Oracle of Social Media” for business, says “what people don’t understand is that there is an absolute land grab in the early days of these platforms.” Establish a strong presence and following now, and you become the person with the most attention later. With the business tools available on this site and the ability to establish a presence on InvestaSpace early, it simply is a site that you should invest time in. They have a desktop version and an app available on the Google Play or iTunes App Store.
Tools to Help You Build Your Business
Facebook is the mass market social media that is basically a given for all businesses to be on and the smart ones are also advertising there and using the new Facebook Live video feature to their advantage. Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and the rest have their rightful space in your marketing portfolio to get your message across to customers and engage with them. LinkedIn is great for connecting with other professionals directly in your space, posting your resume online and aiding employers in verifying job applicants. And you have endless CRM’s to manage your customer data and analytics. What was missing was a social media network devoted exclusively for those looking to create new ventures, build new businesses, invest in new projects and create a genuine community around the shared experience of building and running businesses from an entrepreneurial perspective. InvestaSpace has filled the void that was desperately needed by entrepreneurs with a community of diverse and trusted colleagues to turn to at a moments notice for any of the vast array of issues, questions or opportunities that come up on any given day. Having a network of entrepreneur “friends”, literally at your fingertips, can change your life and your business overnight.
An New Tool in the Entrepreneur Toolkit
If you are trying to light the world on fire as an entrepreneur, inventor or investor, then InvestaSpace is the social media network that you have to get in on because of all the tools that allow you to grow your business fast, especially if you are just starting out. They have brought their powerful features down to a scale that we can all easily use to then scale our businesses up. InvestaSpace has designed the entire platform around connecting people and it is evident everywhere you look. Developing relationships is what it’s all about in business but making them with the right people at the right time is the key. Incredible magic happens when brilliant, passionate and motivated minds get together and I am excited about the opportunities that InvestaSpace has created for us to do just that.
Here are some of the powerful features and tools on InvestaSpace:
Enriched user profiles similar to Facebook with a robust timeline to keep you updated with your contacts daily posts but allows new features such as blog entries, audio file uploads for things like your podcasts and a listings section where users can find each other based on their personalized listing.
- InvestaMeet is their video chat platform, which is essentially business chat rooms on various different topics where you can network with others in real time. This is a super cool feature that I think will
really ignite some innovative and exciting business ideas as well as camaraderie and mentorship among all of us. It will be fun to spend time hanging out there and offering whatever help I can and at the same time soak up some “inside” business advice from other hustling entrepreneurs.
InvestaCommerce is the e-commerce platform where the users can have their own online store and sell their products. This is incredible for those entrepreneurs just starting out who might not have the budget or necessarily the need to build their own.
- InvestaDeal is their group buy discount area where you can sell your product or service at a discount,
similar to Groupon but you can get better pricing. You and other interested parties can pool together and purchase a product or service and get a great deal on something that might otherwise be out of your budget.
- InvestaFund is the crowdfunding platform where you
can raise money to grow your business. Connecting motivated investors with passionate entrepreneurs to ignite the world is obviously something InvestaSpace takes seriously with their inclusion of this incredible tool. Smart entrepreneurs will figure out very quickly that the odds are stacked in your favor on this site to get funding as opposed to the other crowdfunding platforms.
- InvestaVote is a powerful tool to test out different aspects of your business with polls to the other
entrepreneurs for their opinions. For example, you might be struggling on what name to pick for your business, either Retrorocket Pizza or Blast Off Pizza. You can put the poll up about which name the other users prefer and get quick responses. Not only is this expedient feedback incredibly valuable, it will be fun to help others build and grow their businesses by answering their poll questions.
- InvestaVents is their event booking platform where you can create and organize events such as
conferences, meetings, classes. The platform will handle all the ticket sales and manage the attendees. With InvestaVents, you literally can create an online or offline event and start selling tickets today. The ease that this gives the entrepreneur to be creative and let the financial administration and organization be handled safely and securely should not be overlooked.
So, is InvestaSpace the next big social media network for entrepreneurs?? That history remains to be written but if I know entrepreneurs, they will see the benefits that InvestaSpace has to offer and capitalize on the early adoption phase and establish a firm footing.
