In Part 1 of the Bend the Web to Your Will video Series, I said that we’d be building an automated, dedicated research staff that will report to you each day the top news in your industry, or the moment your competitors even breaths.

In the early days of the Internet (pre-Web 2.0) people mainly used Google to find quality information on the web, but with the recent explosion of web 2.0, there are now thousands of websites for this.  The problem with this, however, is this is exactly the reason why Web 2.0 is killing a lot of people right now!  Social media is so powerful because any and everyone can contribute information to the internet, which dramatically increases the amount of information available, which in turn leads to the perception that social media is “information overload.”

Well, I want to suggest that this is a misdiagnosis of the problem.  It’s not that it’s information overload, it’s that there are a limitation of the filters to help you sort through that information.  And in the last video, I introduced you to a few good “filters” for this information (Google, Google Alerts, Twitter Search, and Social Bookmarking sites).  In this video, using the magic of RSS, I’m gonna show you how to put all of this on auto-pilot!  I’m gonna show you how you can take all of these quality information sources and pipe only the good stuff into a manageable platform, so that whenever you’re ready for it, it’s there waiting for you.

After watching this video, let me know what you think!  And even better, set one up for yourself!

    Kyle! Wonderful. I love the way you explain so that a Grandma like me can understand. I need to learn so much and have simply been overwhelmed with info that I don’t understand. I hope you don’t mind, but I’m gonna hang out with you for a while. I believe I can learn a lot from you. If you have time, look at my site and offer feedback, I’d greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks again for a wonderful tutorial.
