Do you know you should organize your online business but just can’t get to do it?
Are you frustrated and tired of having to spend hours locating all the information you need for your affiliate marketing business?
Maybe you have bought all those products online from which you are learning affiliate marketing, you’ve set up your blog, chosen your niche and some profitable products to promote – only to find that you can’t find those affiliate links, or tools because you don’t know where you saved them on your computer!
It can be really annoying and draining of your energy!
You watch webinars on the internet where others seem to effortlessly find all the links and things they need? But you seem to struggle to find just one affiliate link!
As time goes by, and you are wasting, just doing admin stuff – finding the tools you need – there is no work product in that! You realize that you need to get productive and promote your affiliate products. The monthly bills for hosting and article submission still keep coming and still you waste time finding the stuff you need on your computer?
So, what can you do about this?
Well, the answer is that you need to organize your online business.
Yes, I know it sounds boring to organize your online business and you would rather be doing other more interesting things like setting up squeeze pages, posting to your blog and promoting to your list. However, right now you are experiencing the pain of not being organized – right?
Spending the time to organize your online business will be the best investment of your time for productivity later. Invest the time now – just once – to get organized and you will find you will gain time later on to do that more enjoyable stuff and what is more – you will find you can get more done in less time because you made the time to organize your online business.
Here are some organizing tips to get you started
1. Open up a folder into which you save all your online business marketing content. Why? This will keep it separate from other content that you may use your computer for as well. It will be simpler to organize backups of your data if it is set up in one folder. Also it makes searching a whole lot simpler if everything is under one roof so to speak!
2. If you can, save your online business marketing content on an external drive.
3. It is a good idea to save this folder in the highest level in the root directory. You will have many subfolders below it so you don’t want to have too long pathways to the lowest files and be outside the limit set by windows.
4. Name your folders with as short names as possible as this helps to keep the pathway length shorter too.
You can organize your online business today – don’t leave it for another day -start today so that you will gain time for other more important productive tasks
Imagine the feeling you are going to get when you know just exactly where everything is on your hard drive. No more frustration or wasted time!
