For someone who’s always banging on about being organised and completing tasks, it may seem odd to say leave a job half done, but it’s not as crazy as it sounds and it’s an approach I use daily in my article writing to avoid suffering from writers block. Now I know that some authors are very sceptical about writers block, believing that it is a myth and an excuse for laziness. I don’t agree. I absolutely love article writing and I have a large collection of ideas to

One of the hardest things you can do when you’re starting out on your IM (Internet Marketing) and setting up your first website is choosing the ‘perfect’ Wordpress theme.  First problem is what constitutes the perfect theme ‘aesthetics?’, ‘layout?’, ‘functionality?’ ‘ease of use?’ ‘plugins?’  It’s probably a combination of all those things and others I haven’t even mentioned.  And the weight that each issue carries will depend on your own views and ta

Sometimes it doesn’t matter how much you plan or schedule it can all go awry at a moment’s notice by getting distracted. This is what happened to me yesterday.  I knew exactly what I planned to do – complete a video that I’ve been struggling with and create a banner advertising a free webinar.  I also wanted to complete 5 half written articles and schedule a month’s worth of tweets for one of my accounts. Perhaps that list sounds ambitious but I was quite confident that if I

When you first try your hand at IM (Internet Marketing) there are so many new things to learn it can appear overwhelming.   Keyword research, buying a domain name, deciding on a niche, setting up a Wordpress site, getting to grips with article writing and SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) and worrying about where your pages and /or site are ranked in Google or Bing or Yahoo ... Those that are new to IM are always advised to choose a niche that they’re really interested in for their first w

If you’re just starting out in Internet Marketing (IM) , have you thought bow you will measure your success?  For some members it is when they’re earning enough money to give up their day job and become their own boss, for some it’s earning some extra money to supplement their income and for others, it’s not about money at all, it’s just an opportunity to learn something new.   One of the above examples may resonate with you or perhaps you have a different measure of success.

One of the biggest mistakes that anyone can make when joining Wealthy Affiliate is to believe that their membership will lead them down the road to instant riches. If you think that, you’re setting yourself up for failure. That’s not to say you won’t be successful at IM (Internet Marketing), you can be (and there are lots of members who are) but there aren’t any quick fixes and there aren’t any shortcuts. It is inevitable as you get to grips with setting up your first website that y

Members of WA often post requests in the forums asking people to review their sites.  One of the things I’ve noticed is the reluctance for some people to display so much as a photograph of themselves anywhere on their sites.  I sympathise because I think I’m one of the most unphotogenic people on the planet and I absolutely loathe any photograph of myself.  However, I’m a Confidence and Career Coach  and although I do a lot of my work online or over the telephone potent

I've had one of those really frustrating days when I feel I've achieved nothing in terms of working on my websites or writing articles. I must have spent about 4 hours this morning trying to get an Amazon link on a website.  Now I may not always know what I'm doing, but I've done this lots of times before.  Could I get it to work?.  No I couldn't  - I must have downloaded about 7 different Amazon plugins and I couldn't get any of them to work.  Yes I do have a product ke
