Contrary to the common belief that the Roman civilization was quick to overturn obstacles and make its way through new cultures, the Roman army was, in fact, a slow progressing invader. They always tried to spend time with the locals and get to understand the culture, needs, and traditions of each place, so that they could assimilate the best and bring solutions to the most common issues. Romans, as it happens, took their time, and that’s precisely why they ruled over Europe for centuries.
When it comes to investments, it’s easy to see how the careful and thought-through Roman approach can be beneficial. But, even in fast-moving investment environments, and especially with social media stocks, which follow the public’s preferences and opinions closely, taking your time and assimilated the essential knowledge can make a great deal of difference. Here’s how to start social media stock investments, using the lessons you can learn from the Roman civilization.
Let’s be honest. Some social media platforms have been around for over 10 years. It’s easy to see that stocks bought at the beginning of platforms such as Twitter, for instance, would now earn you a lot of money if sold. However, with social media like with any other stocks, you need to be careful to keep managing your investment, even for stocks you bought a long time ago. Investments left neglected can lead you to lose money. For Millennials, who may not have vast sums of money to invest, it’s best to pick stock markets that you are familiar with. That’s precisely where social media offers brilliant opportunities for maximizing your income, as, if there’s one thing Millennials know, it’s how social media networks are doing. You don’t need a finance degree to get this! Just like Romans did, you’ve spent enough time assimilating the social media culture to know which networks are doing well.
Romans got to learn the local culture, and you need to do more than using social media platforms to make your investment work. You need to research how social media stocks are behaving at the moment. For instance, in the current data crisis affairs, it’s fair to ask about Facebook stock buy or sell options. In fact, you’ll be pleased to know that while there has been a significant drop, the stock value remains high for now. However, you can expect that, if the data issues are not resolved appropriately, further social media networks will suffer from a similar hit from Facebook. Indeed, data are at the core of the advertising services offered by most social media platforms! In other words, it’s wise to wait and watch the situation evolve for now.
Nothing Is Set in Stone
However, there is no denying that social media networks are not dead. In fact, social media respond to the public choices. As a result, most networks have experienced fluctuations and dramatic evolution based on the introduction of disruptive technologies and settings. Twitter, for instance, has recuperated from low stock values after removing the 140 characters cap. In short, if you have stocks, wait for the storm to pass before you sell.
If you want to say like Caesar “Veni, vidi, vici,” you need to think like a Roman. Understand your field, get to know the pros and cons, and pick the best time to act!
