Affiliate Marketing Business: Dealing With and Overcoming Frustration

The affiliate marketing business is a great business to get into, but everyone gets into a rut sometimes. Have you ever had those days when you just don’t feel like it? Frustration is usually the cause of that, outside of laziness ( which we’re all entitled to once in awhile).

The dictionary defines frustration as:

a deep chronic sense or state of insecurity and dissatisfaction arising from unresolved problems or unfulfilled needs

There are two major factors that cause frustration for many marketers online and this definition hits on both of them.

The first factor is not working hard enough. There is nothing more irritating than the uneasy feeling of unresolved work yet to be done. It just sits in the back of your mind nagging your conscience to get it done.

If you’ve chosen to drive traffic by creating content, writing articles, etc. The more you don’t get down to handling your affiliate marketing business, the more frustrated you’ll become because you’re not making any money.

The second factor is working too hard. If you find yourself spending 10-12 hrs. a day everyday sitting at your computer, than you are more than likely burning out and don’t even know it yet. Do you find yourself dreading what you have to do to make money online?

Are you constantly feeling like you’re spinning your wheels without going anywhere? Turn off the computer, get up and walk away. Go live life for awhile. Give your mind a break. Give yourself a chance to recharge your batteries mentally, physically and emotionally.

It’s at these times when you give yourself a chance to breathe and focus on something else other than your affiliate marketing business that you usually encounter moments of clarity and everything starts to come together.

So in review, resolve to take action and put what you know to use. Make a schedule or write out a simple to do list to help you move closer to your goal of financial independence.

If your spending hour after hour in front of the computer, take a break. Keep yourself fresh and fresh new ideas and the energy to pursue them will come.
