6 months in - and a new strategy
So, I have been with WA for 6 months. Wow, time has flown. In that time, I have launched 2 blogs (complete with FB pages, instagram and twitter accounts) and am building a following in these different but related areas. I have also publlished a book on Amazon related to one of my niches and have sold over 50 copies in just over a month.
On the downside, I have had an Amazon affiliate account closed because of infringement (still not entirely sure what I did wrong) and another closed because of no sales within the alloted time period.
My approach started with following the lessons but then I branched off into my own usual scatter gun approach - some of which hit the target and other which ended up coming back (can bullets do that?) and biting me in the bum (definitely mixed metaphors there)!
So, I had been thinking of writing this blog to share my new strategy when along comes this BADGE and I think, wow ... just what I needed ... some incentive and a new start!
So, my second six months at WA is going to be a whole lot different.
What is my new strategy?
Well, instead of having about a million tabs and programs open on my PC at the same time which just tempted me into deviating from the path, I now just have one webpage open .... MY OWN HOME PAGE.
My main aim at the moment is to write so there are reminder there that this should be my focus. I have links for each day so it is like a schedule ... Check this, do that ... and it ensures that each week I cover the main aspects of what I want to achieve.
So it is Saturday morning at 8:15am (and it is my day off today) and I have already achieved what is on my "to do" list without being distracted to other things on the web.
It is working for me. What is working for you?
Share you strategies for keeping yourself focussed on what needs to be done to move you forward in the direction you need to go. I am sure we could all learn a great deal from each other.
All the best WAers. Here is to the next 6 months.
Much love and happiness
