I read an article recently on an interview with Adam Khoo on his success. Adam Khoo, in short, is a successful enterpreneur, running a gamut of business offline and online. He gave a few points about his thoughts on business and life.
The summary of the article are as follows
There is a way to generate Youtube advertising revenue.
Even though you are focused on your career and other stuff, do not forget your loved ones, especially family.
Work can make us spend time away from family, but absence makes the heart grow fonder. But, do not stay away too long though.
There are various ways to generate money online. The key is to focus on one method until it works, before moving on to another method. Too many things at the same time can lead to greater failure.
I have to agree with all of the above, especially item no 4. Been guilty of it as well.
A short post … but I want to stress the power of focus in doing business, online or offline. I have been guilty in the past of the ‘shiny object’ syndrome, where I kept buying/attending the next biggest online thing, only not getting any or little success with it. In the end, it was information overload and nothing was done.
If you are blank of what kind of blog post you want to do to update your blog, I would like to suggest a blog post strategy which is a how did I do or how do you do posts. Inspired by this Problogger post, I thought of how to do something similar for movie review blog, My Romance Movie Review, which has been stagnant since it’s relaunch. Oh, and please do subscribe to Darren’s Problogger. It is amazing and resourceful for all bloggers.
So, I have thought the post format for the blog as per below
In then world of Internet Marketing, it is common to go looking for new knowledge or information. Lately, I was thinking why my internet business was going a bit stale. It is definitely not to the lack of knowledge. A look at my hard disk shown me tonnes of IM programs and tools that I have. So, for a few hours I sat in deep thought wondering what is wrong. Then I realized the answer… I was in this situation because of my hunger for knowledge. Yes, my hunger and thirst for knowledge has lead me to not doing well in my internet business.
Yep, my thirst for knowledge lead me to where I am. Allow me to explain. Simply, I was looking for knowledge and information of internet marketing without actually applying the knowledge/information learnt first. So, I kept jumping from knowledge A to ebook B to seminar C .. and the list goes on and on …. in the end, what do I have? yeah, you guessed it .. INFORMATION OVERLOAD!
So I did a bit of research especially from the IM ‘seniors’ to rectify and avoid this problem in the future. There were two major points outlined
1-Don’t Buy Any IM Related Stuff For The Next Few Months
Don’t buy anything else in the IM arena until you have finished reading AND applying what you have in your hard drive. Basically, begin with what you already have/bought. From what I see, a lot of IM stuff (especially WSOs) are recycled stuff that have been published. Go through what you have first, applied it and see the results. Need further info, uncle Google is around …. 🙂
2- Focus on ONE method/technique Until You Succeed
There are so many methods / technique of IM nowadays. From blogging to FB Ads, there are so many options. Do not follow the current. For example, right now FB Ads is the current ‘in’ thing. Do you need to go and buy the latest FB Ads course, while you have a Google Adwords course that you had purchased that you have not yet finished.
Well, I learnt my lesson and shall be applying these lessons to my online business. I would focus on what I have, apply it first, and then proceed. So far, it is working to a certain extent 🙂 and hopefully for the rest of my IM business life.
