What was your biggest challenge when starting out?
I want to ask you a question... But first, let me tell you a short story.
A friend of mine was asking about my online business recently. Like normal, I explained a little bit about what I do. My friend was impressed and asked me more questions about the whole process. In particular Affiliate Marketing and how I started out.
It turned out to be a very long and in-depth conversation. By the end of the conversation I found myself talking about the things I struggled most with when I started out . I rattled off quite a list ha ha.
It got me thinking and I wanted to ask the community what were / are your biggest hurdles in your Affiliate Marketing Business?
My top 3 are / were
1 - Getting lost in the amount of info available - there really is so much info out there about Affiliate Marketing and it can be easy to get lost in it all. This is the thing I struggled most with. It wasnt until I really shifted my focus to my goals (see number 3) that I was able to avoid all of the 'noise' and focus.
2 - Not enough Time in the day - this is a bit of an obvious one, but it was something I struggled with at the start. I eventually figured out a way to manage my time for maximum efficiency. But at the start I found myself always looking for more time in the day
3 - I had no plan - When I first started Affiliate marketing, I got straight into the training, started my site and startign creating content. But I didnt have a real plan.. I had no idea where I was going. I was able to eventaully get some goals in place and start working towards them.So my question to you is...
What did you struggle most with when you started? Maybe your just starting out in Affiliate Marketing/ If thats the case I would love to know what are your biggest hurdles currently.
