I've been visiting and reading here lately because I am lost and do not know what will happen to me and my family but still trying to be positive that I can survive all the changes now.
I already accepted the fact and the mistakes I made like:
- Do not put all your eggs in one basket
- Do not depend on authority sites like EZA for your traffic etc.
This is not the time to blame myself and cry over this but this is the time to do something and correct my mistakes. Now that the worst is here I need to do something to survive and I need your advice
My situation: I started IM and bummarketing /affiliate marketing in late 2006 when I lost my job and I started earning in 2007. I've been earning from affiliate marketing around $3K a month in 2007-2009 and that was enough to support my family. And then due to global crisis and many other reasons my earnings dropped to $1-2K a month. I live outside the US and with the exchange rate of $ I am still OK with that and can make ends meet, I am single but taking care of my 2 old parents and sending 2 nieces to school. I am the breadwinner and taking care of all the bills and medical needs of my parents and paying for my house and all the responsibilities of a breadwinner, not to mention I also have my own health issues. Yes tough for a single woman but that's life I have to do what I have to do and be strong.
Most of my traffic comes from article marketing, from EZA and other directories. Lately I've been seeing changes in my stats and today to my horror my EZA account is suspended. I have more then 1,000 articles with them and I always try to adhere to their TOS because I value my account. Now what will I do? Now I am terrified and although I am still making sales now I do not want to arrive at the situation where I will not earn anymore and cannot feed my family. I am trying to be positive here and would like to believe things will get better.
Now I am focusing on yahoo answers, other directories, social bookmarking, updating my wordpress sites, bloggers etc. I need to do something because I have a family to survive...I need your advice on what else to do. Please. Thank you for your time.
