Yeah we all got it at one point or another. It’s like a virus! We read everything we get our hands on just to learn how to do this internet marketing thing. We watch a video for an hour and a half and then we watch another video and maybe read a pdf file about how to do this or that technical application. But what do we do with the information? Nothing! That’s what! We let all that knowledge sit there in our heads until it gives us a headache.
It’s called information overload and we are all guilty of doing it at one point or another in our internet careers. We are habitual learners and actually love learning. But the problem is that we stop there. WE stop with the knowledge and we don’t put that knowledge into actions and thus don’t succeed online.
We can continue just as we have been doing or we can shake things up and make some changes.
Here is what is needed:
One quick cure for information overload is to focus on the task at hand.
When you watch a training video, take notes. Use those notes to write a blog on 3 key elements that you have learned and can quickly implement into your business.
But don’t just stop there! Put that information that you have learned into action. There is nothing like action on a daily basis that can make a difference in your sales. If you learned a new Social Media marketing technique, don’t just write about it; put it to work for you in your business.
A “Jack-of-all-trades” is usually poor! Or he will remain that way if he doesn’t master 2 or 3 marketing strategies. Think about a doctor who is a general practitioner and one who specializes in his field; for example a heart surgeon. Think about the difference in what it costs you to visit your regular doctor and the cost of a visit to the specialist. The specialists bill is much higher than the neighborhood doctors bill.
Focus on one marketing method at a time. Master something, until you have some success then grow your sales with that technique. Don’t move on to the next strategy until you have mastered the first one. You may even find that you only need one to make a lot of money online. But I wouldn’t just rely on one strategy because things change constantly and I wouldn’t put all my eggs in one basket. And besides what works today may not be working tomorrow.
USE THE TALENTS THAT YOU HAVE ALREADY!
Be yourself! You already have talents or things that you are good at…so, just use them to make money online. Do you have an interest or hobby? Use that hobby to write a blog about it. You have a passion and there are others out there who also share that same passion as you. Could it also be that that same person who shares your love of “that hobby” also wants to learn how to market online? Golfers might also want to market online. A person who knits and makes things like a potter may find that others want to start a home business. Perhaps they just might want to follow in your footsteps and join you in your business. What a wonderful fun way to build a business just blogging about your favorite hobby.
IF YOU ARE GOOD AT SOMETHING, LEARN TO EXCEL AT IT!
Many of us have hidden talents that we have not tapped into as yet. Some might be great at telling a story and writing a blog. Others might be good at shooting video and on-the-spot recordings. Still others are great at setting up powerful Powerpoint presentations. Take that talent and excel at it! I find that the more I do of a thing the better I get at it. I used to be horrible at video. I can even remember shooting the first video and how I had to redo it over and over about 5 times. Even after I shot the last one, when I watched the video I still didn’t like it. I have found that over time and with much practice even the hardest things become easy. I was during that 50th video when I finally calmed down and stopped being so critical of myself. Excel at what you like doing and you will find a “star” is born!
I hope that this blog has helped you in some way and that you have received value from it.
