If you’re like many newbie marketers, you have heaps of great marketing ideas all the time. The problem is they seem to fade into nothing without you ever doing a thing about them, Am I right? Then, after a week, you have forgotten all about that great new idea, or you have that lingering annoying thought in your mind that you have let another great idea turn into nothing.
I mean, who knows if they’re great ideas to start with, but the problem is you will never know. So here are a few tips that will help you get over that hill and finally start putting your ideas into action.
– Procrastination: This is the number one problem – Putting things off. You NEED a plan and some time management system in place. Prioritize your tasks and keep lists of everything that needs doing. Don’t get too technical with this. You don’t need the latest software to manage yourself. You are trying using post-its or a simple exercise book. And no matter how much you don’t feel like doing something, get it out of the way and NEVER leave it until the next day!
– Doing It Alone: You can do it alone, but it is more challenging, and without support, you are more likely to fail. However, it doesn’t have to be much. Online forums, for example, are a fantastic source of ideas and encouragement. And with other people, like starting your affiliate program, you can leverage your efforts and do FAR MORE than you could ever do on your own.
– Be Ambitious: You won’t know unless you try. Assume you can do *anything* – because you can! You may not be ready to do it yet but don’t set up mental blocks in advance. You can create your profitable items, sell them well, and have others selling them for you. You can operate a range of websites, even host seminars, or teach others. YOU CAN.
– Wasting Money: This one is important, especially if you don’t have money to burn! Don’t get caught up jumping from opportunity to opportunity or buying everything that comes into your inbox. You’ll be surprised how much you can get for free. Trust me – you don’t need half the stuff you see online. Try to control your emotions and think before you buy. Write a list of pros and cons, and ensure that the product or service is essential to YOU.
