How to Combat Information Overload in Your Online Biz

by Martha Giffen

It’s a common problem.  We have information at our fingertips in an instant, thanks to  Google!  In the online business world, especially if you are just starting out, information overload is a giant problem.

Here’s the common scenario:  You decide to put your biz online.  You start looking for information about how to get your site up, which leads to information about optin boxes, autoresponder services, shopping carts, traffic generation, social media, etc.  The list is endless!

Where to start, where to start?

You can spend months and months gathering and reading information and in the end, your biz doesn’t get going because of the information overload.  Or worse, you get the business going, but it stalls while you continue to buy, store, and accumulate even more information.

Stop it!

This blog is written because I want to make it simple for you.  Yes, there is more information out there than you can shake a stick at.  You can spend precious time trying to figure it all out.

Bottom line is this:  I have not met anyone yet who is making a good living online that figured it all out by themselves.  There is no reason to reinvent the wheel.  Find someone who is doing exactly what you want and follow them.  Find a coaching program that lays it all out for you in easy-to-comprehend lessons.

Once you find the program that resonates with you, go for it! And then, (here’s the best tip) STOP looking!

Stop the Information from stopping YOU!

Make a plan.  Work your plan.  Stick with it.  Put on binders and don’t look left or right.  The information will still be there but you have to remove it from your day so you can actually run your biz.  Get focused and  the results will come!

Information overload occurs when you can’t make decisions because you have too many choices.  OK.  What does that tell you?  Get rid of the choices.  Narrow it down to what you actually need and go from there.
