Are you getting frustrated with all the internet marketing information on your computer? If the answer is yes, you are not alone - many people struggle with this problem.
You really need to take some time and learn how to go about organizing computer files.
Then decide to take some action and put what you've learned into practice.
Although you might think organizing computer files is not a very interesting task, it is a very critical task for you to do, especially for the productivity of your business.
Have you experienced the frustrating feeling when you are unable to find a specific piece of information for your business.
You are wasting time rumaging around in your computer's hard drive for it.
This can be avoided just by investing an amount of time on organizing computer files and then forever thereafter filing your data away in an orderly fashion.
To begin organizing computer files on your computer you will need to understand some basics.
The content on your computer can be divided into two main areas as follows: * Referencing content * Project content Referencing Content The referencing content on your computer hard drive is made up of all the content that you download in order to learn about the various internet marketing topics related to your online business.
Referencing content includes downloaded internet marketing information such as ebooks, audios, videos, articles, keywords, graphics and any web addresses that you use to locate reference type material.
So any information that we use as a reference for our business is to be included in this section.
Project Information As we build our online home businesses we accumulate internet marketing information that is related to specific sites or projects.
This information belongs to the project information.
Examples of this type of information would be the login details to your blog sites, affiliate links and articles and blog posts that we have posted.
Begin by having the two folders for referencing and project information filed under one main internet marketing folder.
Think of the main folder in your electronic filing system as being similar to a filing cabinet - it has all your internet marketing information in that one filing cabinet.
The filing cabinet has two drawers - one is referencing information and the other is for project information.
Within each of these drawers there are several hanging folders which are the subfolders or sub topics.
As you name the folders, make sure you choose short names.
Place the folders as high up in the root directory as you can.
It is better to save all this information on an external drive to safeguard it in case of some problem with your computer.
