Coming from a professional background in education I have
always known the importance of information. How it can
change and enrich one's life for the better. It's a general
consensus that has proven itself again and again. So much
so, that it's a given fact, information and knowledge can
lead to the very good things in life.

However, it wasn't until I became a professional online
marketer that I realized how effective information can
truly be in achieving your goals. Even the smallest bit
of marketing information can have life changing effects
on those who put it into practice. The results have
totally astounded me.

Not just once but every day.

I am constantly amazed how powerful the right information
can be. As I acquire more and more knowledge in the Internet
marketing field this fact is driven home to me each day. I
still consider myself a novice even though I have been learning
web and affiliate marketing for over seven or eight years now.
The last two years as a full-time online marketer, but I am still surprised how information is the key to achieving online success. How just a few bits of knowledge can make all the difference.

It's mainly due to the nature of the Internet. The web has
a way of amplifying and spiraling everything out of control.
Whether it's the latest must-see video on YouTube or the
latest Google SEO tip that becomes viral and is instantly
seen and discussed by millions within seconds.

Ideas at the speed of light. Information at the click of
a mouse.

I don't believe anyone can fully understand how powerful
and effective the web can be unless you have first-hand
experience with your own website and marketing. Where
you can actually apply the latest marketing technique or
SEO tip to see the results for yourself. Clinical evidence
staring you in the face.

One tip or piece of information can make a big difference.
Strange but true. It's the interaction this application of
knowledge can have on your whole marketing system.
Even just one solid piece of information can change

It's the butterfly effect on steroids. Powered to the nth
degree and fueled by the endless connections of the web.
Information becomes a tangible force in its own right. One
that should not only be respected but more importantly,
used to accomplish your own goals.

Information and knowledge are your key sources for achieving
success. No mystery there, but how many people actually apply
it to their own situation? Limited few.

Anyone wishing to pursue online marketing, building websites,
or just using the net to express their ideas should start first
with acquiring as much information as they can get their hands
on. Keep in mind, not everyone is chasing the almighty dollar,
but for those who are after an economic return, obtaining
information is still your best ticket to the good life. No
matter what that good life means for you or your objectives
in life, acquiring the right information will get you there.

Therefore, regardless of the lifestyle or pursuit you have
in mind, you must make acquiring information and knowledge
your first goal. Seek it out, don't wait for it to just magically appear. Befriend people who have the knowledge you're
seeking. Be pro-active, learn something new each day.
Consume information but don't forget to also process it.
Use the information you acquire.

Never stop learning. It's the one lesson you must learn.

I hope you will make it a lifelong pursuit like I have done.
Thanks to the power of the Internet the rewards and benefits
just keep multiplying every day. Those rewards will be all
the incentive you need to keep obtaining more and more

So teach yourself. Keep acquiring knowledge. Keep growing.
Keep improving. Keep learning.

School's out but you're not. Not now, not ever!
