There's no doubt that the Internet has spawned a massive volume of free information which is accessible to anyone with an Internet connection and computer. The info on the net can range from the simplest of subjects to highly technical information about aeronautics & outer space probes.
Finding specific subject information only requires entering a few relevant
words to the search engines to find thousands of links to relevant web
pages, some search words could produce up to 6 million relevant web
pages for you to search through. How long do you think it would take to search all of those pages?
Is All Of This Free Information Of True Value To You?
Anyone who's been around the net for more than an hour will know that there is a huge amount of free info just waiting to be downloaded by tens of thousands of web hungry cyber surfers. But is this free information the right kind of information for you? Does the FREE content you have access to actually solve your problem?
Searching Forum Groups For The Right Kind Of Info.
Do forums provide the right kind of info? Well yes...and no, if you have
been a member of any online forum group you'll know that there is lways
a half dozen people that control, or become the "knowledge gurus" of
the group, and many new forum members hang off their every word.
Just the other day a new forum member announced his arrival on a group
and wanted to know what book he should buy to start learning about
hobby metal casting. The guru promptly said, "don't buy any books until you have read through all of the posts on this forum", now this forum has around 3000 members and growing, can you imagine just howlong it would take to find & read through the thousands of forumpostings, as well as the hundreds of topic threads about a certain subject?
Don't Get Confused With The Forum Dialogue.
Much of the free info offered is confusing, incomplete verbal babble, with very little in the way of valuable explanation of methods, systems or
techniques. And this is where the newbie to any forum becomes totally
confused... the more a certain thread continues, the more distorted and
complex the instructions become... because just about every member
will put forth their two cents worth. For the newbie it can be difficult to
sort the wheat from the chaff.
If you happen along a few months later as a forum newbie and inquire
about a certain subject, and your are told to "go look in the forum Q & A logs" you'd be excused for thinking "how long is that gunna take me" wouldn't you.
Forums are great when all you need is short quick answers to relatively simple questions, but if it involves a lengthy subject explanation then you better start searching for a web site that provides informative detailed content, as well as information & image rich ebooks about the subject you are researching, other wise you might not have your questions explained in an understandable way simply by firing a few questions at the "gurus" in a given forum.
Subject Specific Ebooks Are The Answer.
Ebooks are an absolute gold mine for information gathering & learning,
they cut straight to the point and provide the required information in a way that the ordinary person can understand. The time saving alone
could be worth many times the small investment of a given ebook
package. Most "How To" ebook writers have years of hands-on practical
experience and really know what they are talking about, and provide you
with genuine practical information that you are unlikely to find elsewhere.
The advantage of ebooks is that you can instantly gain access to your information. You simply pay for the information through a secure server and payment gateway and a few moments later you can download and begin to read & learn about your chosen subject. There is simply no need to spend hours or weeks fossicking around for those gold nuggets of vital information that only quality ebooks will provide to you. What could be easier than that? And lets face it, if you possessed valuable information, would you give it all
away for free?
So next time you are surfing the web for info; don't just settle for the FREE stuff, if you are going to spend days or weeks looking for free
info, you need to consider how much your time is really worth. If you
have nothing else to do in your life, then by all means hit the web and
search your life away, but if you place a high value on your time, then to
my way of thinking the info rich ebook will win out every time, simply
because all of the hard work has been done for you.
All you need to do then is:
Read -- Learn -- Apply -- it is as easy as that.
