As a teacher I have found that I have had to try to address each of various learning styles in a lesson in order to get an entire group of students to understand a subject. With hundreds, if not thousands of social media sites and internet marketing approaches available on the internet is there such a thing as a “best” way or learning style to get a grasp on social media?
This article is more of an overview for anyone that has a “big picture” learning style. That means before you master a task you typically like to get an overview of the “big picture” so you can know exactly how to prioritize your learning steps and efficiently organize them in your mind. If you feel you need to get a “bird’s-eye view” of the internet marketing landscape then this may be a place to start.
People who have this learning style sometimes like to take things slowly when they undertake a new skill, because they feel they need to take the time to look at everything available that they will need to master. I myself am a combination of big picture and analytical learning styles.
Maybe you’ve come to the realization that the more you try to “wrap your brain” around social media and internet marketing the more you need to learn. Attempting to grasp what the internet and technology has to offer can be overwhelming. You find sometimes all you can do is walk away from it for a few minutes to rest.
There is only one way to approach internet marketing and now the effective use of social media and that is with an open mind. That is with the understanding that with hundreds of millions of websites and as many 2 trillion individual pages and counting, that the internet is the mirror image of the real world with all of the good and bad intermingled.
There is no book in existence that has successfully summarized and encapsulated the internet into an all comprehensive guide that will leave the reader feeling they have learned everything there is to know about the internet. It is because it is obviously impossible to compile such a document or even a series of books. In the next post I will address those internet marketers who try to represent themselves as knowing everything important there is about the internet, what I refer to as “How to Kill the Borg” marketing.
