Recently, I talked in another thread about the problems I face just trying to stay focused because there's just so much to do all the time. Over the past few months, however, I've been increasingly able to get the work done that I plan to do.
The thing is, I'm promoting as an affiliate mostly... been doing it for about 5 years. 3 years ago I received help from a business coach, things began to move along and I started making money, but then it all came to a grinding halt. In other words, I never moved beyond the results I was getting a year after that coaching ended.
I desperately need someone... a marketer or guru who can give me some clues into what the heck I'm doing wrong and how to fix it. I keep giving others advice that seems to help them, but when it comes to getting that knowledge to work on my own business, I fail miserably.
Over the past 2 months, I've focused on article marketing - doing 3-5 articles every week and posting them to the 5 top directories and on my blog. During that time, I also launched my dog product and have put a lot of emphasis on directing people to my sales page rather than to my affiliate links.
In the past 6 months I've seen my Clickbank cheques fall from around $400 a month to $100 and it's getting worse. This past week, I made $17.
It makes me angry because I just seem unable to turn this around.
Unfortunately, I cannot afford to pay for a business coach now because my money has gone. I hate spewing my guts like this because it's embarrassing, humiliating... and just downright depressing.
Last fall my van died so I've had to walk everywhere. I just got back from the grocery store - had to haul everything home in one of those personal grocery carts, or bundle buggies my mother used to call them. As I marched along, suddenly there I was, living my nightmare - the life of a bag lady. OMG! You just can't imagine how much this scares me.
Can someone help me find the path out of this widening pit of failure and onto the path of success?
I'm willing to do whatever it takes and will certainly be willing to pay you back in whatever way I can, ie: writing articles, ebooks, in exchange for your expertise.
You can PM me if you'd rather.
