We Have Hit a Plateau and it Zaps My Motivation
I was so excited a few months ago, because sales were going up, and traffic was going up, we were on a steady curve. But for the last couple of months, things have not really changed, in fact sales are down. I figured sales would go down from December, but they seem to just keep dropping, with March having less sales than February.
Traffic has seemed to hit a ceiling, staying at just under 3000 a day. It will not go over 3000! It is frustrating!
We have been writing consistently, targeting easy to rank keywords, and still our traffic stays the same.
It zaps my motivation when things are at a stand-still. When numbers continually increase, I get excited, it makes me want to work more. But when numbers stay the same or decline, my motivation gets zapped, I feel like I want to give up, like this isn't worth me getting up at 6 am everyday.
I just wanted to rant a little, and to ask, what do you do when your motivation is declining? How do you keep youself going when it seems like your work is getting you nowhere?
