Written by The Shops at 24Seven on Monday, December 08, 2008

In a post from a few months ago titled, Start Working...Stop Checking Your Stats I talked about 7 time wasters that keep us from staying focused on growing our affiliate business. Most of the time it's our web surfing that keeps us off task.

If you use Firefox, I recently discovered a Plugin called LeechBlock. I'll let them explain what it is:

LeechBlock is a simple productivity tool designed to block those time-wasting sites that can suck the life out of your working day. All you need to do is specify which sites to block and when to block them.
Bottom line, if your one who is always wondering away from your work, you need this.

Written by The Shops at 24Seven on Tuesday, December 02, 2008

Josh at ScrappyBusiness.com had a great post last week about being frustrated with affiliate marketing. I like his punch in the gut approach. To summarize in 2 words...work hard. I'm tired of the "get rich quick" lies around the web marketing world.

Josh outlines 11 princples to approach your affiliate marketing plan. I'll quickly summarize, but it'd be better to head over there and read it for yourself.

  1. Write out your financial goals.
  2. Write out a game plan.
  3. Figure out what your good at and love to talk about.
  4. Know what your plans of action are.
  5. Know what your offers are.
  6. Get your butt to work.
  7. Manage your time properly.
  8. Fail.
  9. Set a goal with deadlines.
  10. Optimize like crazy.
  11. Keep educating yourself.
