Make A Committment To Your Business
© 2001 Donald Goss
If you really want to generate serious income as an affiliate, you need to make a commitment to your business. Don't take the hit and run approach of posting a few links, banners and classified ads and expect to make a ton of money immediately.
Think about what you want to accomplish. Then set goals and review them daily. To paraphrase an old saying, "You can't reach your destination if you don't know where you want to go."
If you are new to all of this, you may be saying to yourself, "But there's so much to do. I don't know where to start."
When you are just starting a business it is natural to feel overwhelmed. There is so much to learn. The best way I have found to deal with this feeling, is to set aside a certain amount of time daily to devote to your new business.
You will have to decide how much time you can budget. But, make a commitment and stick to it. If you will spend a set amount of time working at your new business EVERY day, the results of those efforts will add up very quickly.
It's like the old saying, "The best way to eat an elephant is one bite at a time. Divide your tasks up into small chucks and do them one at a time. Before you know it, you will have accomplished a great deal.
The commitment that you make also means you will have to resist the temptation to go running off in search of greener pastures. Choose one or two marketing methods and milk them for all they are worth before you try something new.
Ignore get rich quick offers like the plague. If someone came up to you on the street and said, "I'll make you a millionaire in 3 weeks." You would run the other way as fast as you possibly could, wouldn't you?
Use the same good judgment when you see unrealistic offers on the 'Net. Just smile, hit the delete key and get back to work on YOUR business.
Just make a commitment and hold yourself accountable If you will do that much, everything will eventually fall into place. Before you know it, you will be earning a steady income as an affiliate.
