I'm Somewhat Torn.
After coming back from my several months long hiatus, and trying to get back into the swing of things; I continue finding myself stalling out. I really want to make this work, but I often wonder if I want it bad enough. Why can't I find the motivation to see this through?
Did I set myself up for failure when I decided to go into the already saturated "make money online" niche? It's hyper competitive, it's saturated, and the make money online niche is definitely not for the faint of heart. I find it hard to say WA is the end all be all of affiliate marketing. I'm just having a heck of a time coming to terms promoting WA when I have yet to make a dime. Don't get me wrong, WA has A LOT of great content, and the community is outstanding. It's just that I'm not living proof this works. How can I represent this community, when I've seen very few results? Does that make me a poser?
I try to keep telling myself not to expect instant gratification. Progress will be slow, but be in it for the long haul. Focus on the long game, I will make it. Despite telling myself all this, I still find it so damn hard.
I enjoy helping others, and don't want to see new affiliate marketers sink money into products which lead them into a dead end. I suppose part of my lack of motivation comes from not enjoying the niche I'm in.
The difficult question is: What should I do? Should I abandon my current site, and start from scratch? Should I scrap what progress I've made, and search for greener pastures (other niches)?
I apologize for the tone of this post. I hate being a Debbie Downer. Hopefully, I can one day come back to this, and be elated that I proved myself wrong.
To end this on a lighter note, I'll just say: For those of you seeing success, I'm not mad nor envious. In fact, I'm happy for you. Whatever it is you're doing, continue doing it; keep on truckin'.
