My Top 5 Tips For Staying Motivated With Affiliate Marketing

5 Tips For Staying Motivated With Affiliate Marketing.

Working harder is not enough advice! Let’s review my top 5 Tips For Staying Motivated With Affiliate Marketing.

I have been seeing a lot of comments in my social network and even a few on this site about people losing motivation when starting out doing niche website building.  So I wanted to put together my top 5 tips for staying motivated with affiliate marketing.

It really takes some motivation and determination to build a business, a successful home business online.  I am seeing people talk about giving up after a couple months, and that is really a shame.  Because more than likely in the next month or two if they just keep up and focus on their websites they will start to see some light at the end of the tunnel.

I often say on my blog posts here on this site that it is very exciting starting a new home business like this, but that after a week or two or maybe a month it can start to get hard to do.  You are building and adding content to a site that nobody is seeing.  You want to make money doing this, but your not.  I always tell people it can happen in the first month, but usually it takes a few months to several before a new website will start to produce traffic and make an income.

Why I Love Affiliate Marketing

I got into blogging and affiliate marketing nineteen months ago.  If you have spent any time cruising around my website you will know that I was looking for a means to make some extra cash every month to help with bills and stop the vicious cycle of living paycheck to paycheck.  Well, let me tell you why I love affiliate marketing after all this time.

Scene from my vacation on Lake of the Woods, Ontario. I was able to work on my affiliate marketing websites.

I just got back from vacation.  I went away for several days to Canada on a fishing trip.  I rented a house boat with some members of my family on Lake of the Woods in Ontario, Canada.  We were for out in the middle of nowhere, and normally well out of range of any cell phone towers – but the houseboat had WiFi.

Even though I was gone from home and my home office, I was still able to do a little work on my various websites.  In fact, this very website, Earn Your Success, I posted a new post on it every day that I was gone.

I love affiliate marketing because I can go away on vacation, most anywhere as long as there is an internet connection, and I can still work.  I can travel the world and still work on my at home business.  I don’t have to be in my home office or designated work space… it’s TRUE FREEDOM!  Work wherever you want to work from.  Go on a trip and have fun, put in an hour or two a day on your website or websites and live the life you want to live!

First and foremost, niche blogging and affiliate marketing is work.  Yes, it is considered easy work, but nonetheless it is still work.  There is some learning involved on how to do it properly, but once you get past that learning curve… you can make some really good money.

Blogger burn out is not good. Pace yourself and set aside some fun time.

I started this website back on April 28th.  Today is May 16th.  This website has been up for roughly eighteen days now and so far I have created 7 pages and 25 postings.  For one person doing this in their spare time it is a lot of work to build a page to this size in that amount of time.
