Information overload is clearly a thing.
According to a 2014 study by UC San Diego, each day we spend an average of 11.8 hours consuming media on our devices, the equivalent of 174 full newspaper’s worth of information.
That’s approximately 113,000 words per day, and this is increasing 2.4% each year.
So it’s not surprising to hear many people tell those of us who write a blog or a newsletter or produce videos or other content to cut back.
But I’m not cutting back and neither should you.
Because we have people with problems that need solving or goals they wish to achieve, and the information we send them helps begin the process.
So, let other people cut back. Not us.
When you send out valuable and/or interesting information that educates clients and prospects about their problems and the available solutions, you give them hope for a better future.
And you can’t do that too much or too often.
Where many marketers go wrong, however, is by sending out information that’s not helpful or interesting, so people stop reading it and forget your name.
Which doesn’t help anyone.
The message is simple. Write something people want to read and send it often, because you don’t know how many times they need to be reminded that you have the solutions they seek, or when they’ll be ready to take the next step.
