How do you stay motivated when the going gets tough? Over the last few days I’ve probably been twice as productive as I usually am. Just today I’ve written around 5,000 words, about 2,500 of those words were article reviews and another 2,000 words for an affiliate home page. I’m trying to keep all my home pages filled with nice, juicy content so 1,500 words is the new minimum for me. On top of all the writing I finished off some keyword research and did some cleaning up at home.
So what’s different today compared to the me in the past when I was barely writing a few articles a day? This has been the subject of my attention for the last few days and I’m going to share with you some of what I’ve found. As I wrote in my last post, Don’t Stop Till You Reach The Top, giving up is one of the prime reasons marketers fail. You could even say the only reason. Today we’re looking at what keeps us motivated. See my three tips below.
One of the biggest obstacles in online marketing is giving up too early. How many times have you started something only to stop before you had even really begun? I know I’ve tried hundreds of ways to make money online and the vast majority of them failed because I never really gave them a chance.
Just this month alone I’ve purchased three WSOs and already I’m starting to feel the strain of daily life pulling me away from bringing the fruit of these opportunities to life.
If you give up too soon you may literally be stopping three feet from gold!
Brett Tabke, the CEO and founder of Pubcon Inc. gave a keynote speech at the recent PeSA Conference. Tabke has been on the leading edge of community networking sites since the 80’s. He’s also an expert on driving online traffic, SEO and is a founding member of SEMPO (Search Engine Marketing Professional Organization).
So what is the next big think in Internet Marketing? First, mobile continues to be big. In fact traffic from phones is tipped to take over traffic from a desktop. Mobile phones are where it’s at so you need to make sure your sites are optimized for these viewers. Users want the exact same content, the same experience no matter what device they are using. The kind of device they use doesn’t matter, these days it’s more about screen size and giving users the exact same content on each device.
We all want something out of life otherwise we wouldn’t be here. Something drives us forward each day. It’s the things in our lives that we lack, that are missing, that create in us the desire to want to change. The driving force for you may be money, love, fame (the need to be recognized and accepted), or something else entirely.
In all of the universe nothing stays still. Everything is moving. Absolutely everything. Even the Earth and the rocks, which seem to be standing still, are changing there state from moment to moment. In any two moments nothing in the universe is ever the same. When things begin to stagnate they die. You could say that movement is life. Ceasing to change is ceasing to BE.
So what are you striving for? What are your goals? What are your dreams? What are the dreams that you’re afraid to dream?
Opportunities are all around us, but it’s rare to find someone who can see them, and rarer still to find one who is ready to take advantage of them in order to bring something great into the world.
One such man is the famous teacher and author of “Think and Grow Rich“, Napoleon Hill. While still a teen Napoleon had been working as a journalist covering local news items in order to pay his way through law school. His original writing style brought him to the attention of the owner of Bob Taylor’s Magazine and he was asked to interview and write about successful men.
