Affiliate Marketing Planning
Planning and goal setting is by far the single most important element to online success. Without it you’re just a ship without a rudder floundering around the internet looking for something to do and jumping on every shiny new opportunity. I can’t even begin to tell you how many people I’ve seen make this critical mistake.
In fact, I made this mistake myself and it almost sunk me too.
Unless you’re already wealthy you probably have only a limited amount of time to figure affiliate marketing out before you run out of cash, resources, and patience. The easiest way to shorten the learning curve and accelerate your rate of success is to create a plan, install goals, adhere to strict deadlines, and stay on track until you get there.
Without a plan you’ll likely go down the path that most affiliate marketers take and that is unfocused experimentation in which nothing is actually followed through to completion and thus no real money is made. There are endless distractions in this business and the only way to avoid getting sidetracked is to have a focused goal, a plan, and the discipline to work your plan to completion.
If you won’t commit to this simple first step of setting your goals and writing them down there is no need for you to go any further. It’s that important! Please learn from my mistake of not doing this in the past. It’s so vital.
Again, please do not make the critical mistake of dismissing this step! If you don’t set goals for yourself, and review and adjust them on a daily basis, you will fail. Period.
“The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don’t define them, or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them.” ~ Denis Waitley
