Information Overload Makes You Feeling Stuck?
The internet set a huge amount of information free. We’re used to go google for anything we might need to know. There’s a lot of data on every topic anyone might (or might not!) think about.
It changed not only our lives, but the way of doing business as well
Now having your own business is more accessible then anytime before. With a few bucks or even free, almost anyone can start to make money on the net. More and more people are coming on Internet to find out how they could make money and dream that some day they will become millionaire too.
There’s free access to a lot of ideas, methods, success stories, and recipes on making money online. Without talking about the hypes and lies which are another story, many materials are useful for any newbie to learn from. This is a good thing in the first two-three months of a newbie’s surfing online on this subject. The beginner needs to get familiar with what is happening out there on the net and, at this stage, free information helps.
Unfortunately, everything starts to be a real problem when this information becomes too much. The information overload and contradictory methods and formulas recommended by online marketing gurus melt into your head and inevitably lead you to frustration. Anyone who was there knows very well this feeling.
After consuming the free information, most newbies take the next step and go buy programs to learn what other people did to succeed. Enthusiasm comes up again and the aspiring Internet entrepreneur embarks in learning systematized information to de-clutter the mess. At this moment, sticking on the first program bought and starting a business following the model recommended by the program’s author, would be the best thing to do.
This way, the learning process is getting into a new stage. Even if you still don’t make money, you already get the feeling of doing something and learning practical things, not only theorizing. But, if you don’t start taking action and, instead, go buy another program and then more of $7, $9 or $37 ones spending a lot of money and implementing nothing, you get back in the frustration zone and feel overwhelmed.
What to do now? What could you do to overcome this struggle and to finally start a sound online business?
If you want to ever be successful online, you have to master the business universal principles. Internet changed the way of doing business coming up with new business models and new ways of approaching customers and of delivering them products and services.
But the essence of business didn’t change. It never changes.
Business means creating value and selling it for a profit.
You’ll never make money out of thin air.
You’ll never make money pushing buttons or following a certain number of steps without knowing WHY you’re doing that.
You know already a lot of things about ways of making money online. You’ve heard about lists, about PPC, about affiliate marketing, and about a lot of other ways people make money online.
Now it is about the time to find your place. You have to find your appropriate way of making money online.
There are two directions for you to focus on:
1. Build on yourself – find out what you can do best, what you like to do and build a sound mindset. Learn business basic principles and learn how to approach your online business from the right perspective.
2. Be selective with the information you really need to decide what online business to start and be selective with the products we need to buy to get help in speeding up things. Continue to learn and study how other people are making money online until you find an idea which is comfortable for you. Than, take action and start implementing it.
To succeed online you need to become a conscious information consumer and products buyer. This is very important: get out from confusion and get clear about what you’re doing.
