When you start as a newbie with online business especially affiliate marketing you are excited and want to conquer the world but then soon you realize it’s not what you thought so here are 3 major pitfalls for beginners in Affiliate Marketing.
Knowledge is power when it is organized correctly and you take action, by that I mean you apply the knowledge you gain through a plan or an action.
But in Affiliate Marketing you find that you have massive knowledge from understanding Your Niche, SEOs, Social Media Platforms And PPC.
As if that wasn’t enough you have to learn how to create good content and finding keywords. And because you are excited and you want to succeed with say 3 months or 6 months.
Because that’s the information you have. Trying so hard to understand all these leads to information overwhelm because if you are not careful you would end up confusing yourself and going round in circles.

The most important thing to remember in Affiliate Marketing is the phrase “Rome was not built in one day” if you can remember this you will not only conquer procrastination but enjoy your journey of being an affiliate marketer.
When Setting Goals it is also good to be realistic because if you are not and you get frustrated, then procrastination has its claws in you.
I do procrastinate not because I am frustrated but because my life is a busy one though I work from home. I have lined up things I do and by the time I am finished I find that it’s already in the evening.
How Do You Overcome Procrastination?
Just wake up and start what you want to accomplish, if it’s writing content just start with one thought by the time you know it you have finished your content. Whether it’s exercises, House chores or just whatever it is you want to accomplish you have to take action.
I have moments where I don’t really want to exercise, I do it every morning so I would just say my affirmations they do put me in a good mood always.
Then I have a long list of my favorite songs and I would play two of them, then move to exercising and I can bet you a dollar it works all the time. Just start and you will be surprised how your mind will get into gear.
This is a huge one for me, and I bet it is for you. Time just flies, I have a schedule I follow every morning, But I still have issues managing my time to accomplish everything I want to in a day. But then I have to create a plan, to manage what I can do each day.
You also have to remember you can only accomplish only what you can, you need high energy to do that and to have that kind energy you need rest. Your body needs rest to be able to function with clarity.
How To Manage Your Time
Since I am not good at time management I am only going to share what works for me so it can help someone who struggles to find enough time to do everything that is needed to be done that day.
First come up with a plan of how you want your day to go and what you want to accomplish. Break them in their order of importance.
See how much time you would like to spend on each task. For example I wake up early around 4:30am and I pray for 1 hour 30 minutes.
