Making millions online is easy. At least, that’s what most internet marketers’ ebook, training modules, subscriptions, emails, videos, podcasts, blogs, and articles will tell you. The fact that there are hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of marketers competing against each other for positions in Search Engine’s Results Page, conversions, sales, traffic, etc., everyday, should be an enough reason to realize that making real money online is not as easy as what many so-called gurus in the internet promise.
One obviously common but still very powerfully effective tactic many internet marketing “gurus” use is Herd mentality. They spread (or sell) their so-called “discovered secrets” to large groups of people and teach them to do same thing as they say, over-and-over again, to promote their own affiliate products, and promise wonders. Then, when people don’t see results, they research for another “guru” listen to what he or she has got to say, and try the new strategy. And the cycle goes on and on, trapping striving marketers, leaving them with little or no success at all.
We’re all interested in personal development; it’s human nature to discover one’s strength, drive, passion, weaknesses, etc, to improve ourselves. That’s why we constantly seek for new information and learn and experience new things. Ironically, these new information becomes too much to handle for us and slows us towards our goals.
There are hundreds of thousands of articles, blogs entries, books, eBooks, etc., out there that promises to help. Many of them have really good things to say, which can be helpful for our development. However, the problem starts, when we, receivers of this information, become greedy of this new information, and before we know it, we spend more time in collecting new and new ideas, and try to use it all at once, but nothing’s really been done, because we simply don’t know how to implement them in a consistent and doable process.
Beat Information Overload and Make Real Progress
Stop absorbing too much information and do the work. This may sound so simple, but so many people fail to do this right. Rather than comparing multiple resources, limit yourself to on particular post, blog, or product for each thing you want to work on and develop.
Use the basics of the thing you need to know the minute you discover it. You may not understand everything at first, and you may feel unsure of what you’re doing. It’s crucial to know how stuff works. But remember that you will not know if you’re doing things right unless you actually try it yourself. Sure there will be learning curves along the way, and there may be some failures, but the experience and knowledge you’d get in the whole process is all worth the effort. The best part of it all is that, you’ve avoided the bump of information overload, which is both the first step and the hardest one.
Keep learning as you go, and let your campaign evolve on its own naturally. Before you know it, you’ve learned enough to improve your campaigns.
