Anyone can do it. Most newbies avoid it. It takes some effort, but it gets easier every time you do it. It's a skill that has literally made people millions! Seriously.
We learned it's basic steps in elementary school (if you paid attention), practiced it a lot in high school, and refined it in college.
Here's a hint if you haven't figured out what this skill is:
According to Samuel Johnson, "Knowledge is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information upon it."
The answer is . . . drum roll . . . research!
Nowhere is the lack of this skill (or at least the willingness to do it) more evident than right here at the Warrior Forum. Members avoid it at all costs.
Just post a thread - ask a question(s) - then believe the various answers you get from random people, 90% of whom have never owned a business, made any money online, or had first hand experience in the subject at hand.
Posting a forum thread is the fast and easy alternative to doing your own research! Let others do your business marketing homework!
Let me tell you this (of which I'm 100% certain): If forum members would do their own research first, before posting questions here, they would
- Get a more sure (authoritative) answer to their query
- Benefit immensely from the actual process of "digging" for an answer
- Become exposed to both (or many) sides of the question so as to enhance their understanding
- Learn a lot about related or peripheral issues that affect the subject so as to be better informed and well rounded on the subject
- Learn what doesn't work or what has failed in the past (things about the subject to avoid)
- In the end, become a better and more knowledgeable business owner because of what they learned
- Never be at a loss for content, blog posts, articles, information products, or help in solving a business problem
How do you do research? Excellent question.
Why don't you go research that subject.
After you've had a chance at personal discovery, I'll come back with a few ideas and tips of my own.
