Everything Is Hard Before It Is Easy - Online Marketing Is No Different
I remember about mid-way through 2013 when I was struggling to get traffic to my online store and I was discussing some things with my sister that is a web developer. She was advising me on how to make my website better and how to drive traffic to my site.
I was pregnant with my second child, I had a very strong willed toddler and I had my own business. I tried to take in all these things she was telling me I needed to do and I told her if I atttempt to learn one more new thing my head will explode.... it will just spontaneously combust and I won't exist anymore.
Now the thing is that then I was trying to figure things out without any guidance. Yes she builds beautiful customized websites but she is not an online marketer or a blogger. Those are two very different things. I had my beautiful website I just didn't know how to use the thing or get people to visit it.
2 years after that discussion with my sister I found WA and OMG did everything just all slot into place. I had found the guidance, the support and the tools all in one place! Jackpot!
Fast foward another 3 years to today - people ask me how I find it "so easy" and how do I know how to do all these things that I do easily today. How come it "comes naturally to me".
It was not always "easy". I have screamed with frustration and I have felt like throwing my laptop at the wall, out the window and smashing it with a hammer. But I have not done any of those things and I have never given up. I've taken a break, had a breather and come back to my work and endured and eventually I find the solution.
Today someone asked me what my secret is - someone here on WA. My answer is that my secret is here and you are here. There is no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow but there is success to be found with following all the training here and putting in the hard work.
