I am finding that one of the biggest problems with being a newish affiliate is dealing with the mental aspect of things. Some days when I finish work I kinda sit there and just think wow I hope what I've done today is worth while. The fact that I haven't had a great amount of success yet leads me to constantly question what I'm doing. I guess this doesn't change until you make some good breakthroughs.
I had a really good conversation with Spry about it last night and he gave me some great advice. He basically said you must refuse to fail which I thought was a really great way to look at things. If you keep learning and improving then at some point you are going to have to succeed right?
Gotta take a moment to big Spry up as well. He has helped me out loads over the past few months and I value the advise he gives me extremely highly.
I have been working really hard on a bingo site I launched about 5 months ago. It has been sat there aging a bit and now I've really started to put some time into it. It deals with pretty much everything your standard online bingo site would, stuff like bingo reviews, UK online bingo halls and bingo slots. Sorry couldn't resist the opportunity to link build
Anyway, I have been adding content and building links to it. It is certainly growing and traffic has doubled from last month. I am getting a good amount more search engine referrals as well which is great.
But, that still doesn't cure my doubts. Can you really know that what you are doing is going to work until it works at least once?
As a new affiliate my strategy has been based mostly around looking at the sites in the industry which are clearly making money and doing things right. I guess in a way my sites are a mish mash of all the good things I have taken from other peoples sites. It has taken a while but I finally feel like I have got something going which has potential to earn well and provide good information to my visitors. But just feeling things are good doesn't mean they are and that's where the doubt comes from.
Anyone experiencing anything like this as well? Any advice?
