The Other day I got a message from one of my sign ups who wrote: I do not see much progress lately so I lost my enthusiasm and time.

It is never fun to get those messages.

As a new affiliate marketer online with a strong wish to get fast results it is easy to get demotivated.

  • you are on a low budget and need to earn what you spend at least
  • You get no traffic
  • you get no signups to your offers
  • you get no one to your email list.

I know how it feels

I have been there myself a while ago.

I wrote and wrote and wrote without getting the results I wanted for a long time

I posted and posted on social media without getting any comments or likes on my posts for a very long time.

I was on the brink of giving up

What to do?

What I did was to sit down and reflect on my journey so far.

What had I missed?

What am I doing wrong?

I had followed the system and the steps as best as I could.

I decided to ask for help from a friend who was also a marketer, but more successful than me.

I got some good tips and tried to do something different for a while to get a new perspective on things.

It is when the hurdles come that most people give up

Then I remembered what my guitar teacher told me long time ago when I played classic guitar. I came to a point where I had no progress and was about to stop.

My teacher was strict with me and said. Hilde- Now is the time to press on the pedal.

Now is the time you need to practice and practice and practice what you learned until your fingers bleed.

So I did. And guess what ?

after 6 months of practice hours every day on my guitar I finally got the progress i wanted. It was hard, but so rewarding when I felt I had made it.

My guitar teachers words have stuck with me since and every time i face a hurdle I say to myself. Now is the time to work harder. It always helps

The best solution when you feel demotivated

When you feel you are not progressing you need to work harder and just practice what you learned so far. You will become better and better every time.

Even if you do not notice it yourself. This is the best solution.

or you can do something totally different for a while.

To take a step back and come back later, but that is way harder to do.

So my best tips is to just keep going and practice and practice until you feel the progress coming. Never stop.

This is an amazing advice, Hilde!

You’ve explained it so well, with your own experience as examples and also easy to read, relate to and understand.

You’ve probably helped so many people (new and old) with this post that you don’t even realise the extent of it. This is one of the most powerful posts I’ve seen on WA, so thank you and well done for sharing it.

All the best,

Maria

Well I truly hope it helps someone. And I am always happy to hear from people who found it helpful

Awesome advice! I just liked this myself just a few months ago. For my email list, I switch up my lead generation page by offering a different report or free ebook. When my affiliates for WA say it is to much work and don't see the point I go back to my records that I keep and go over with that I started just like them and with time and dedication my businesses to continue to improve.

I think that sounds like you made a good decision. It is all in the small details. You never know what works so you need to test it out.

Great advice, Hilde. Thanks for sharing your experience.

You are welcome!

Fantastic and heartening advice Hilde for us all here, and most appreciated. I'm happy to hear that your persistence and hard work paid off.

I've just started reading the book, Atomic Habits, and that's about trusting in the system, and making tiny changes that over time create significant results. I'm looking forward to reading the whole book!

Cheers, Alisa :)

Awesome! I have read that book . One of my favourites. And that is true to change your habits takes time, but it is not only about habits .your habits will help you get there, but if you have no inner driving factor behind your habits it does not matter. You must want it to happen.

Great advice here, so many people give up just before the breakthrough, thanks for posting.

You are welcome. I hope it can help someone who feels stuck right now.
