When There’s a Bump in the Road, Which Way Will You Go?
I’m going to doing something a bit different now, sharing some information from a network perspective. Yeah, there’s no one else on all of WA who can do this, other than my co-worker from Commission Factory (our Australian network).
Today I reviewed a number of referrals to our network to see which had become active. Sadly, it was only a handful. The rest were all declined in my program. The actual percentages would surprise you (sorry, I can’t give that away!). All of these referrals started with the dream, got as far as purchasing a URL and creating a bit of copy, then let it all drift away.
Was it because it was harder than they thought?
Was it because the money didn’t instantly start coming in?
Was it because someone else promised it would be faster and easier if you just bought “their system” instead?
Was it because they picked a topic based on commission rates instead of something they knew about? (Yeah, most people aren’t good enough writers to successfully write about an unknown topic.)
Did they just get bored?
The road to a successful affiliate marketing site, especially your first site, is not an easy one. There will be bumps and detours guaranteed. Many use those challenges as a reason to stop, even after they’d invested so much time and money to get that far. I’ve seen it happen thousands of times, literally!
But then there are those who don’t quit, the ones who navigate past the bumps and detours to reach their goal of a successful site. The ones who won’t let a little challenge stall their dreams. The ones who are determined to find the path until they achieve their goal. Those are the special ones.
So, which person are you? The one who gives up easily, or the one who pushes through until you succeed. Right now, I’ll guess that every person who reads this posts nods their heads and pledges “I won’t quit, I’ll work until I succeed.” That sounds great – right now. But will you say that when there’s a bump in the road? Remember the pledge you make today during the hard times. Don’t become just another declined application in the industry. Instead keep going until you reach your goal. Make us proud!
