Woke up the other day to a peculiar hazy yellow sky which got steadily worse throughout the day! The normal strong sunshine and bright blue mediterranean sky were completely obscured by this fog of dust.
It was difficult to see where you were and where you were headed!
If you dared to venture out in it you would soon be coughing and spluttering and stumbling aimlessly.
Got me thinking about running an online business.
For most people starting out it`s similar to being in a sand storm.
Not knowing which direction to head in.
Not seeing the bigger picture.
Choking in the IM desert
Being constantly attacked and robbed by bands of guru bandits!
But wait!…… There is an oasis close at hand.
A place where you can see a clear path to success ahead.
Where your efforts will soon start to earn you big commission coconuts!
Even if you decide this particular watering hole is not for you, you are sure to dig up some hidden treasure in the words spoken by Dean Holland in this FREE video!
Back in March I purchased a product through the affiliate link of John Thornhill, as he was offering some great bonuses. These included a promotional tweet on his two twitter accounts, a banner ad on one of his sites for 6 months plus a guest post on his blog! It seemed too good an opportunity to miss. The product I purchased, Covert Commissions is good, but it was the traffic bonuses that swayed me.
Thing is, I`ve been putting things off, finding all kinds of excuses like “what could I possibly post about on John Thornhill`s blog?”
In the last week or so I have been feeling guilty because the 6 month deadline for claiming those bonuses is nearly up and I was annoyed with myself that I could be letting this chance of free targeted traffic slip by.
At this point I re-watched some video rants that John Thornhill has posted on his blog from time to time and this helped me to get motivated!
So, I sat down at my computer and forced myself to write a blog post about… wait for it……procrastination and motivation!
Once I got started, the damn thing more or less wrote itself! It took me less than 45 minutes to write the post and the tweet, prepare the banner and send them off for approval.
By the way, the blog post, tweet and banner are all promoting my link to Dean Holland`s Big Commission Blueprint.
I am hoping that finally conquering this self-imposed hurdle will reap rewards in the weeks and months to come in the form of extra traffic to my blog & BCB link. If nothing else, I feel better for having taken action! 🙂
