Are You Taking Advantage Of The Tools Available To You?
I was inspired to write this blog post after reading Dale's excellent blog post, you can see Dale's blog post below.
I believe that we live in a great time, despite all the problems going on in the world. The Internet has really opened up absolutely massive opportunities for the businessman.
People often talk about the good old days, I'm not quite so sure if they were as good as they make out! We certainly have far more opportunities to make money than ever before and have the luxury of being able to carry out research, purchase goods, participate in online courses and much more!
So my question is; are you taking advantage of the tools available to you?
First of all, we have excellent training available here at Wealthy Affiliate. Living in the UK, I have never yet been able to watch one of Jay's webinars live, however, they are all recorded so we can watch or listen at any time.
Your SmartPhone Can Be Your Best Friend
I'm not a great lover of smartphones for work as I find them far too fiddly, I much prefer to use a PC. Even with text messages and WhatsApp messages I try and reply using my PC as I find it much easier and quicker, obviously, this isn't always possible.
However, one of the best things about smart phone for me is the fact that when I am working my off-line business I'm able to listen to some great training.
I think is absolutely fantastic that I can be working my off-line job and listening to Jay's training at the same time. There are times when I need to see the screen, but most of the time I can gain valuable information just by listening.
YouTube is another great learning source, providing the information is accurate, I think for most of us we know what's true and false in the Internet marketing world. I actually pay for the YouTube app that enables me to listen to YouTube when the phone is in my pocket as I listen to a lot of YouTube videos. So for me, I believe that I reap the benefits, even though there is a cost involved.
You can actually listen to YouTube with your smart phone screen locked in Google Chrome, however, it is more of a fiddly process.
Audible, is another great resource that can be used when we are on the move. Audible is part of Amazon, they offer audible books, more and more books are available as an audiobook. Once again this is a paid service, but for me, very beneficial indeed. I can purchase one book per month through the subscription (extra books can be purchased at cost if needed). I really enjoy reading, but time doesn't really permit, so audible is a fantastic solution.
Are you making the most of the resources available to you? And what resources do you find really valuable for your online journey?
Thank you for reading.
