Blogs are a dime a dozen these days, so too are websites which lay claim to being news outlets which challenge the often biased and advertiser-centric mainstream online publication media. For the most part this is a good thing, because what it means now is that consumers of online media are less likely to have their realities shaped by a fabricated and pre-planned narrative. There is a negative side to is as well though, which is that any one of the brand new blogs and website which claim to be the much-needed independent voice or reason can quite easily add to the existing phenomenon of fake news.
Additionally, they can account for confirmation bias and that’s largely the reason why internet users usually come away unsatisfied from their information-searching exploits online. Either that (you don’t quite get the information you were looking for) or you end up spending way too much time actually trying to find value in the information presented to you, a lot of which is just optimised for the search engines.
Naturally there are some gems which you go on to uncover as some great sources of specific information, whether it’s newsworthy content or just some advice on the various aspects of your life. Normally this comes down to specialisation though.
If you ever find yourself having to pay for information you want online then you must make it count, like how if you might want to get into the gifting industry you would pay for some research analysis data which would otherwise take you hours upon hours to complete yourself. I just went with the gifting industry as a very specific example to drive the point home, otherwise this applies to pretty much any industry.
The internet is not as free as it’s made out to be and of course I’m talking about its accessibility beyond what you’d pay for your connection to it.
Now, getting back to the gifting industry as a case in point – there’s a reason why a certain personal injury attorney Los Angeles residents tend to gravitate to is as popular as they are, for instance. It has everything to do with the quality of the service they deliver, measured through their track record of landing clients record claims, but in order for that personal injury attorney to get to the stage they’re currently at they would have had to go through a very steep learning curve in their industry.
This type of legal professional will tell you all about how they wish they could have known what they do now, back when they were starting out, even if they were successful enough back then, driven mostly by talent and intelligence.
Of course as things stand now, experience is what counts above everything else, which is why you can get something like a free consultation in order for the likelihood of the success of your case to be gauged. However, as a result of the existence of the market research field, some equivalent of that experience is effectively available for purchase, but it doesn’t come cheap at all and in no way is it a substitute for the experience gained practically in the field.
It certainly comes in handy.
