By now you are probably tired of ‘learning’ about Internet Marketing and you would actually like to make some money…
Am I right?
I don’t blame you.
When I see 1000 different people selling AdWords, eBay, AdSense, SEO and Blog information, I get this overwhelmed feeling.
I feel like I’m drowning in information and instead of actually making money – I’m too busy trying to keep up with all the latest marketing fads.
The good news is you don’t need to know all the newest fads.
You really don’t… Internet Marketing is no more complicated than offline marketing.
You need 3 simple components:
1) A good product 2) A good offer 3) A good list
But the simplicity of actually making money is complicated by one thing: FOCUS.
From my discussions with hundreds of entrepreneurs, it appears they do not know how to make decisions about marketing and business in general.
They have no framework for making important decisions – how to weigh the pros and cons of any decision, and the ability to make decisions quickly.
Most people wait to make a decision until they have all the information available… and they postpone important decisions because they do not have all the facts.
Well, guess what?
You’ll NEVER have all the facts.
The ability to make decisions quickly even when you do not have all the available facts is the hallmark of a true entrepreneur… and it’s a skill you need to develop, if you want to succeed.
It’s part of my “Fail Faster” philosophy.
You have to make the best decision possible, and make it quickly, even if you do not have all the facts, if you want to be successful.
Then take ACTION.
Test and studies have shown that even wrong decisions, if acted upon, can make you successful if you use a ‘course correction’ strategy.
Course correction strategy is simply the ability to be flexible after a decision is made and acted upon, but appears to be off target, so that you can get back on track by learning what went wrong so you can correct your course of action as you move your business forward.
Making a decision, then taking action is more important to your success than doing nothing because you’re waiting for all the facts. Even if you’re wrong, the process of decision making and taking action is critical to your overall success.
PLAN, DO, REVIEW…
It’s more important to DECIDE and ACT. Then correct your actions as you go rather than postpone a decision and never act.
Did you see that? Did you hear what I said?
It is critical to your success and I wish you success always.
