Information Overload? YOUR Blueprint for Turning Information into Action

Information

It’s the cornerstone of any successful Internet business. We all need information to learn what techniques are currently working.  Without it; you’ll get left behind.

Odds are you’re in the information business.   It doesn’t matter if you’re a blogger, affiliate marketer, product owner, or complete newbie; your Internet business is based on information.  The question is how to synthesize information without wasting a lot of time.

The Trap of Too-Much Information

Like I said in the article about fighting overwhelm it’s easy to get caught in the information overload trap.  We all want to succeed.  And sometimes it seems like the best way to do it is to read everything that pertains to Internet marketing.

How to Fight Information OverloadToo much information can be a bad thing.  It’s one of those creative excuses we all make for why we can’t more forward with a project.  Often it’s easier to say you’re learning about a technique than it is to try it and make mistakes.  If you let it… information overload will cause paralysis by analysis.

So what’s my point?

It’s simple.  While information is important, it’s also an area where people waste a lot of time.  Today I’d like to talk about my method for synthesizing information and taking action.

What I’m about to discuss is important because it teaches the exact steps to become a mini-expert in any topic.  After this post you’ll be able to learn ANY new concept and immediately apply it to your Internet business.

How to Complete your eBook Masterpiece – Even if you HATE Writing

In the last month I’ve talked a lot about affiliate marketing.  So let’s shift focus and discuss the other way I make an online income – Selling eBooks.

Affiliate marketing is an excellent business model.  But I’ve found that offering an information product is how you make the real money. Currently I only have a single eBook offer.   Yet this product nets me an average of $3,000 to $4,000 of income each month. The best part is I only work an hour each week on this site. So this money is almost 100% passive income.

Picking Your Ponies: How to Choose Your Affiliate Marketing Programs

Picking your Ponies in Affilate Marketing
As someone that’s been an affiliate marketer for a few years now, I can tell you that the number of people trying their hand at affiliate marketing has literally skyrocketed. A lot of people are out of work and a lot of others have gotten fed up with working their tails off, answering to someone else and collecting a meager paycheck that doesn’t even cover all the bills. They’re turning to affiliate marketing in hopes of starting a new career.

It’s important to realize that calling yourself an affiliate marketer doesn’t necessarily mean you’re successful at it. Hollywood and New York are full of “actors” and “musicians” that are actually waiters and bus boys, if you get my drift. Even so, if you’re willing to take the time to learn what you’re doing and you’re willing to work hard, it really is possible to become a successful affiliate marketer.

Think to Grow Your Reach

On Friday I made a video that asked the simple question, Is “The 4-Hour Workweek” bullshit? Like I thought would happen, there was a lot of mixed opinions.  Some felt it was possible to earn a full-time income while only working a few hours a week.  Others think it’s a bunch of nonsense.

In the video I made a simple point.  You can’t indefinitely work a few hours a week unless you plan for “growth activities.”  These include anything that helps expand the reach of your business.  Like a commentator said, ‘if you’re not growing, you’re shrinking.’  By not making plans for expanding your business, it’ll ultimately wither and die away.
