10 Ways to Sabotage Your Article Marketing…and What to Do About It!
Published By Google+

Have you ever in your adult years thought that you had a chance at someday competing in a major sporting event?

Well, I have for a while now.

Every time the Games comes around I just get a surge of “I could do that!” enthusiasm, and all the sudden my brain jumps from the thought “maybe I should workout more often” to “maybe if I trained really hard I could be a world class athlete!

I know I have a wild imagination :-) , but does anyone else all of the sudden feel like starting an intensive workout program when the summer or winter Games comes around?

It’s the thought, “Maybe I could really do this!” that gets us all excited and gives us the energy and drive to start something new.

At the beginning we’re all excited, with visions of being totally buff, or perhaps winning a gold medal some day ;-) Then we follow a program for a week, maybe 2 weeks, and one day we wake up and realize we’re disenchanted with what we’re doing, because…

  • The results are not coming fast enough.
  • We’re not even sure if we’re doing this “getting in shape” thing right.
  • We see other folks getting major results with (what appears to be) minimal effort, and we think there may be something genetically wrong with us that we can’t spontaneously morph into a superb specimen of the human form.

Little by little, lots of times without even realizing it, a bit of self-sabotage keeps us from fulfilling our true potential.

We get off the program, we skip doing things that we know we’re supposed to do, we have unreal expectations for results, then we shake our fist in the air and think, “Ugh! This isn’t working for me!”

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, undertaking an article marketing campaign is a lot like starting a workout program…

In multiple ways, many times without even realizing it, we sabotage our own article marketing efforts by letting things slide, taking short cuts, having unreal expectations, and sometimes just not having accurate info on how to do things in the best way.

But that’s okay–we’re about to get things straightened out!

Over the next few weeks we’re going to be exploring 10 of the most common ways that folks unwittingly sabotaging their article marketing efforts.

The purpose of this series is to empower you, so that you will have all the information you need to get back on the track to victory!

With each of the 10 posts, we’ll go over what the self-sabotaging thing is, and then I’ll tell you in detail how to overcome it!

We can all do this!

This is article marketing–not the pentathlon :-) .

It may not be realistic for most of us to train to become world class athletes, but it is entirely reasonable (and not near as difficult!) to learn how to do article marketing for maximum results.

We’ll be starting this series on Monday so be sure to tune in!
