first affiliate marketing obstacleIt happens to all of us.

You’re eager to start a new site and begin earning money from affiliate marketing. You get your site up and running without a problem and even get a few posts published.

Then it hits you: THE obstacle you never saw coming.

What do you do?

Identifying The Obstacle

The first step is to make sure you understand exactly what the roadblock is that you’re faced with.

The worst ones are always the ones you didn’t see coming. You didn’t know to check Google Trend data. You didn’t see a huge competitor blocking your path.

Then you realize you made a mistake and it feels like the world is about to end. You don’t know how to proceed.

It happens, and it’s ok.

Take a deep breath and take out a pen and paper. Write down what challenge you’re faced with, and then try to think of 3 reasons why you think that problem arose.

Getting Support

Once you have an idea of what the problem might be, it’s time to reach out and find support.

You can do this by Googling your problem, but the best option is to get help from someone who’s been in your shoes before. This is why I recommend joining a strong affiliate community to work with.

You’ll have the help and experience you need to guide you when the going gets rough.

Break It Down

Finally, when it comes time to start solving your problem, the most important thing you can do is to break it down into sizable chunks.

Large problems seem overwhelming. Small problems seem manageable.

Then just start crossing the items off your list one by one.

You’ll get through it, and your site will be stronger because of it.
