The good thing about the world we live in is also the bad thing. There is information overload and it is killing us all.
It may seem a little dramatic but when you are starting out, and in fact even when you have been in this game a long time, the amount of new essential tactics and strategies that we all must do right now that get thrown at us is stopping us getting started. It means we don’t know what to do, or worse still we work on things that are not actually important to us yet and waste our time.
What you need to do is start at the beginning, which may sound obvious but sometimes it’s the hardest thing to do. But seriously, get the foundations down and you will have the platform to do whatever you want to do, but without this foundation you could sink fast.
Until you have some traction (i.e. a website that attracts visitors and makes commissions) forget about things such as email lists, social media, link-building strategies, outreach, viral marketing etc. I’m not saying these can’t grow your website and money making potential, because they definitely can if done correctly, but I am saying if you focus on these now more likely than not you will not get off the ground.
Start right and you will succeed.
