Information Diet & Selective Learning

Posted on 02. Sep, 2010 by in My Progress

Recently, the theme I’ve been hearing over and over again is the importance of saying ‘No’ to lots of stuff in order to be able to focus on just the important things.

Mark Mason over at Masonworld.com talks about the 3 things ever Internet Marketer needs to know when just starting out. One of the big three is to not get distracted by all the different models available and just choose one.

Right now, I recognize that I am torn between trying to create my own product based on a passion of mine or trying out an affiliate product and practice building traffic and a community first. I’m not sure which I should choose.

The affiliate approach sounds attractive because I know I get hung up on the creation of a product. I am needing to strengthen my weak areas by learning how to build community and attract traffic but I feel this resistance because that is uncomfortable. I guess either way I am going to have to do that eventually, so I might as well jump in with both feet.

I have been fascinated with the Niche Site Duel between Mark Mason and Pat Flynn. It has been incredibly informative watching those two and their approaches. I like the fact that Mason was able to get his site up so fast and start moving up the SEO ranks quickly. I am going to go back and re-read the post on his approach before I consider trying something on my own.

Now I have to figure out what niche I would chose.

Putting all the lessons into practice is actually much harder. I get distracted by the whole “I’ve got to pick the perfect niche and hit it out of the park” mentality that everyone warns you about. I’m fighting that one real hard right now.
