Achieve Your Money-Making Goals by Staying Motivated

There is definitely an art to achieving your goals. Part of that is staying motivated. With a job and a boss, keeping your job would be enough motivation for you to do what you are required to get your paycheck. There is also structure where you have defined duties to perform in a certain time period.

stay motivated!

When you are your own boss working from home to build your own online business, you have to have discipline and make a commitment to yourself. It is all too easy to tell yourself you will do it tomorrow or next week; so in setting your goals it will help you if you give yourself deadlines (and try not to make excuses for why you did not achieve what you set out to do). At the same time don’t give up if you don’t make it – just set another deadline and try harder to meet it.

In creating a plan for yourself for example, don’t say ‘publish an ad’ – but say ‘publish an ad by Wednesday’ and then make a list of everything you need to do to put that together – researching your keywords, composing your text, signing up for the ad service, to actually placing the ad; outline every step of the way and really be determined not only to write a great ad, but to doing it by the deadline you have set for yourself. Don’t let anything get in your way – particularly not doubt.

It really helps to define the reasons why you might have doubt and to tear down any obstacles you create for yourself or that may actually exist. There is really nothing that you can’t overcome if you believe in yourself and strongly desire to achieve your goals. Why do you hesitate to sit down and write the ad? Do you think you do not have the writing skills?

Read through some ads and define what is good or bad about the way something is represented. How would you write it better? While you never want to ‘copy’ someone else’s composition, you definitely can use them as a blueprint or guideline when you find some writing that you feel is compelling and well-written. Re-engineer this – in other words rewrite it in your own words, saying basically the same thing in another way.

Do you not really believe in what you are selling? This is very common especially when you honestly can’t say you have done something YET or know something for sure through your own experience. Of course you don’t want to admit that but at the same time you do need to be honest. In this case you can quote what others have said or done as proof that the product or service does work. You can quote the specifications or features of something just by reading other ads or websites that sell the same thing or something very similar.

Finally, it may really help you to spend some time each day or whenever you are working on your business to read something motivational, listen to an audio or watch a video to get yourself ‘psyched up’ – There are a number of these types of things that will give you little sayings to repeat back to yourself each day – and specifically when you are feeling doubtful or skeptical about what you are doing or who you are. An example of a famous/classic one, you can usually find online for free is the eBook ‘As a Man Thinketh’ (“as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he”) (James Allen) is one very good one. Just read a few paragraphs or pages at a time and you will start to feel positive! Then you will BE positive and have positive experiences and results!

Is Affiliate Marketing a Great Way to Start a Home Business Online?

Let’s start with the bottom line first: Why it is a good idea? It’s because you can ‘Just Do It’. There is no lengthy learning curve; there is no huge investment of money; there is no need to be particularly creative; no need to be a technical expert. You can actually become a member of a program in about 5-minutes from now and get started! (But wait! Please read the rest of this article first!)

become an affiliate today

Why is it so possible to just start up an affiliate marketing business? It’s because by becoming a member of the program, you have in effect, been given license to profit from their intellectual property.They have already created the system and product, the website, and the membership program. All you have to do is use the resources and start marketing and advertising your affiliate link. The program will handle your sales transactions, support your customer, and do the accounting. If you make a sale or referral, then according to their compensation plan, you will earn a commission.

This is fondly referred to as ‘autopilot’ and you should really understand what that means. It definitely does not mean ‘sit back and wait’ for everybody to do the work for you; or for it to magically happen, and then your job is to just roll up to the bank with your wealth. Nothing will happen unless you are fully engaged in your business to consistently promote your business (affiliate link, affiliate sales page, etc.) over TIME. It may sound super easy to get started but you will need to build and develop your own
business if you want to succeed (EARN money) after you start.

When you see ads that make it sound so simple (which it really is) and instant (while possible, it is not probable if you have no marketing experience or ‘list’ (customers) that you can appeal to). Now don’t let that be an excuse to fail, if you don’t have a list, because every single person who ever made a dollar on the Internet or anywhere else had to START some place. The same place you are starting, at the beginning. The ones that succeed invested a lot of effort over TIME. They got the experience by doing it, and at the same time BUILT a list of prospects and customers.

‘No program works unless we do’ – so we can’t blame the program, the system, the government or the weather if we fail. It is just like any business – you have to do the work in order to get paid. When you are working for yourself, you may work a lot without getting paid while you are building. If you don’t understand this, then maybe you just need a job – or a second or third job. It’s no crime if you do not have the motivation or desire to actually develop a business yourself. However, you need to determine
that as soon as possible so you don’t waste time and money. Affiliate marketing is a great way to do that without risking much besides your monthly membership fees.

Be sure to check out the program thoroughly – read the site – their FAQ (frequently asked questions) and any documentation that explains who they are, what they do, how much it costs and how much you can make. Run some queries in a search engine like Google.com. Unless you see legal documentation of actual fraud, or a huge list of bad reviews, consider negative remarks with an open mind. Many people who have had unrealistic expectations have been disappointed the minute they saw that they will need to w-o-r-k or spend any money or time to build a business. Sometimes they are embarrassed that they actually thought they could be instantly wealthy without work, and they will blame the program, but never themselves.

Don’t get in ‘over your head’ – do only what you can afford. Most scams have a high cost to participate and maybe ‘contracts’. They promise huge gains for your investment. Pick a low-cost program with no contracts. Don’t speculate – do only what you can afford. Consider the membership fees are due each month – consider small advertising and marketing fees (and much you can do yourself for free if necessary). Give it and yourself a fair chance.
