I can't stop my bad habit.

I check my Google Analytics, Clickbank and Aweber stats like 30 times a day or more.

I'm obsessed.

Anyone had this problem before?

How did you control it?

    i used to be like that....checking stats all the time, but i really don't do it anymore. im not exactly sure how i got it under control...but i usually just check stats once a day....sometimes not at all.

    sometimes you just gotta step away from everything for a little bit....you'll figure out what's important and what's not

    I am the same way, but I am always testing. Stats do help you find out what is working and what is not, so I guess it's not a bad thing. It's better than being addicted to porn :p

      True. Sometimes I do use those stats. The majority of the time I just like to see the numbers go up.

        Nothing wrong with watching the numbers going up, everybody wants to see their efforts paying off

    Hi techbx,

    Look. If you're an email marketer, there are really only two things you need to track after you've done some basic optimization.

    1. Your squeeze page/blog conversions.
    2. Your email campaign --> Sales conversions.

    You want your squeeze page converting at 35-50%. If it is, great. Leave it. Don't worry about it and don't check it for a couple of weeks. There's no need. The most important thing is how well you're able to sell to your list.

    If you have 500 people on your email list, your goal is to warm these guys up enough that they buy your product at a rate of 8-20%. Shoot for 8%. If you can make 8% of your list into buyers, you're going to make 40 sales. And that's excellent, especially if your product is over $19.

    Those are the two most important figures you need to worry about. There's no need to worry about other figures or conversions.

    It sounds to me like you mightn't have a structured time management plan. You don't know exactly what you should be doing at that very instant so you be 'productive' by checking your stats.

    I want you to sit down, draft up a 5-7 hour daily plan of attack (depending on your work schedule). Say, I'm going to do this for this period of time, take a break for x minutes, then get to work on this for another x hours. It'll increase your productivity infinitely.

    Good luck!
