I've been doing a ton of research lately such as on the WF and YouTube and Googling various subjects.
I'm finding the more I do the more confused I'm getting. It's like I'm getting 'too much' advice'. To the point where it becomes a dog chasing his tail.
I have the basics and sure it's nice to get different perspectives but it just gets to be too much and gets you to second guess yourself.
Ultimately at some point you have to jump in the pool.
It's also apparent that so many people are coming from a different perspective so their advice to you may not fit or work for you.
A lot of the advice is contradictory as well. I think we should be very careful about who we accept advice from.
Honestly I'm at the point there I need to have enough faith in my ideas after doing the best research I can do. It appears to me that many of the Warriors (myself included) are asking for others to 'see into the crystal ball' and give them a forecast of the future when obviously that is just not possible.
Maybe that comes from a fear of failure. But the more I learn about IM the more confusing I get. I think you can do way to much research and never really get started. Maybe it's going to take a failure of two before we get it right.
I'll say this about real estate and sales is it's no where near as confusing or contradicting. I heard a few guys talking about day trading vs internet marketing and which is more complicated well I would agree the mechanics of day trading are more complicated but at least there is a more straightforward path to take to be successful.
To sum it up internet marketing is the wild west of entrepreneurial ventures. Sales, Real Estate, Day Trading all have a more defined proven path to success I feel. Less risky too I believe as I keep hearing of people being penalized by Google in the search engines who are practicing white hat techniques only.
Maybe I'm wrong or maybe I'm just over analyzing it I don't know. Maybe that is just the way IM is.
Either way it seems very unstable path to me. Likely because there are so many more possible ways to go (so many niches) where as sales, real estate, and day trading are all very narrowed down already.
Could also be I'm over complicating it.
