Too many ideas - my head is about to explode. Help!
I'm new to the forum. I just joined a couple of days ago and I've been spending time reading past threads.
But now, I really need some advice.
I became extremely interested in affiliate marketing about two weeks ago. It became an instant passion. I did tons of research and realized, I totally have the aptitude for this. Most of the things one has to do to promote a site I have done a million times before to promote other Web sites and other projects (writing, research, Web design blogs, submitting links, etc, etc). And these are all things I enjoy doing!
I never thought of myself as a marketer. The tech stuff comes easy for me, but the psychology behind marketing isn't as effortless. Also, even though I have read a ton and watched video tutorials, I am having a hard time understanding Adwords. Adwords is really kicking my butt right now.
I suppose, like many others who are new to affiliate marketing, I'm starting out on a small budget and I am desperate to increase my income. I'm not doing this because I want to get rich quickly. I'm doing it because I am excited by the challenge.
And that is what my problem is. I have so many ideas! And I'm trying to explore them all at once! I've got five Web sites in development:
-a dog training review site *broken link*
-a poodle-related site filled with affiliate products
-a weight loss site
-a lasik surgery site (for Adsense revenue)
-a new age/self help site
I also want to do a relationship-oriented site.
I'm feeling so overwhelmed right now. I'm still absorbing tons of information about affiliate marketing while bouncing back and forth between one site idea to another. I'm trying to relax and take it one project at a time, but I don't know which one to pick and focus on.
I don't mind the idea of investing time into building a site, but, truth be told, I want to see results as quickly as possible. I don't have to make a zillion dollars in a week, but I need some sort of affirmation to let me know I'm on the track. Do you know what I mean?
How do I approach this so that I don't burn out yet am able to stay the course and create success?
