#Confidence Is Key (www.berlin-training.eu)

Let’s face it; if you want to #succeed at anything, you need to have a certain level of confidence. This doesn’t mean that you need to boldly and #fearlessly attack every aspect of #life. There certainly may be areas where you lack confidence. You need to identify, however, the areas of life where you need to be confident in order to succeed. (C) Christian Sterk

 

The first thing you need to do is to identify where you need more confidence, and where you don’t. Let’s say, for example, that you are afraid of public #speaking, and you need to get over that to succeed. In this case, you need to gain confidence in speaking in front of people. If you lack confidence in cooking a good meal, that certainly won’t matter to your speaking ability. You need to identify where you need to gain confidence, and where lack of confidence doesn’t matter. This doesn’t mean that you can’t gain confidence in other areas, though.

One of the dangers of a lack of confidence is that it can fuel failure. Failure then leads to decreased confidence, which leads to failure, which leads to… well you can see it’s a vicious circle. Lack of confidence and failure feed on each other, and they will drag you down. So, the first key to gaining confidence is to succeed rather than fail.

Your first successes do not need to be major #successes. You just need to succeed at something to start #lifting #yourself up, and break out of the failure->lack of confidence cycle. Choose a small goal to achieve. This needs to be a goal that you cannot achieve at this #time, but it also needs to be #achievable with a little bit of #work. Set your mind on achieving this goal. Set yourself a realistic time #frame, and then determine what you need to in order to succeed.

Once you achieve this goal, you will start to see that you can succeed. Keep setting yourself #goals, and work towards achieving them. Success will #lead to confidence, which will lead to more success, and so on. Before long, you will be able to attack the critical areas where you lack confidence. If you fear public speaking, you can now start working on that lack of confidence. Find mentors to help you along. Find #groups and #organizations that will #help you to build confidence.

Do not confuse confidence with arrogance. Being confident is a #good thing, being #arrogant is a bad thing. Confidence is the idea that you can achieve something that you can succeed. Arrogance is the idea that you are better than others.

Confidence is the key to succeeding in any #aspect of life. Whether you want to succeed in #business, #creative endeavors, #fitness, #weight loss, or #family, you need to have confidence. Start by setting yourself small goals, and find small successes. Build on those successes and you will find yourself gaining confidence in all areas of your life. Once you have confidence and success, then you can start helping those who lack confidence themselves.

Building Your #AffiliateMarketing Assets (www.berlin-training.eu)

LEMPtraining_Affiliate_Marketing
One of the biggest mistakes made by affiliate marketers when they first set up is failing to recognise that they are actually starting a #business. Consequently if you want to be #successful you need to have the right #mindset and #manage your business accordingly, not doing this is the one of the fastest roads to failure. (C) Alexandre Chambon

If you look at it from another #perspective you are establishing a #marketing company and your #websites and affiliate links are your assets which you can build to be as big as you want, you are only limited by your #time and #imagination.
There are a few steps you can take which makes you stand out from the crowd and avoid the stamp of being a “newbie” or unprofessional.

Step 1: Websites and domains

It’s important to have your own domain(s) and website(s) for several reasons. One is that you have complete control over what you choose to #promote, and what #ads and #banners you want to put on your site. You can create an eye-catching #professional #layout or have someone do it for you if that is beyond the scope of your abilities.

Secondly you are able to have your own #personalized email and you appear far more professional when you have your own domain, as opposed to having freebie hosting without a decent or keyword enhanced name. An extra #benefit is that your website and domain are assets that can be sold down the track if you choose and if you have developed them properly. You can buy a domain for around $10 and monthly hosting can start as low as $6.00 per month, so it’s well worth the small #investment.

Step 2: List building

All marketers know you need to get #traffic to your website, to click on your banners and ads to make money, no clicks – no sales. But getting traffic can be #hard work. Even when you get visitors to your site you generally only have one shot at nailing their business. What you need to do is build up a #customer list so you can get repeat visitors. You can do this by creating a signup form on your website for your #newsletter or offering a free downloadable gift or service in return for your visitor subscribing to your list. Once you have established a list you can email your customers with your offers and promotions on an ongoing basis.

Don’t just contact your list when you are selling something, try and share useful #information or advice, try and build trust so your customers will know to value what you are offering them, and buy from you when you do have a promotion. It is generally accepted that your list has a value of $1 per customer, so again another asset to nurture and build.

Step 3: Traffic

The lifeblood of affiliate marketing is traffic, but not everyone can get on the front page of #Google so where else are you going to get traffic? Unless you want to pay for it and that can be very costly.

A few methods you can explore are: writing articles, press releases, posting in forums, commenting or guest posting on #blogs, offline #advertising, and classified ads.

You don’t have to do everything at once, start off with one, master it then move on to another. It’s important to test your results, check to see which #method is most #effective and keep doing that.

Having an affiliate marketing business is all about repeating systems that work, so just make sure you develop a system first, then rinse and repeating the methods that work for you.
