You know the scenario:
You have a blog and have been working hard, yet unlike the success stories that you hear, things are not looking good from your end.
Countless hours of blogging and implementing marketing strategies is not giving you the results you want.
Suddenly, you don’t feel motivated at all. There’s no doubt about it – you’re stuck in a blogging rut. You feel frustrated, and yes, you feel like giving up.
Not so fast.
Perhaps, it’s just time to take one step back, reassess, see what went wrong, make some improvements, and start fresh. Start by asking yourself these questions:
- Do you offer quality content, something new and relevant that your customers find useful?
- Does it seem like you are obviously advertising your products and services all the time?
- Do you maintain a newsletter but get a few sign ups?
- Do you always run out of ideas?
- Are you making trial-and-error approaches based on snippets of information that you’ve read somewhere and not getting expert help?
Don’t fret. I found 2 helpful tools to help you get back on track, and give you ideas on how to get out of the blogging rut:
#1. Zac Johnson’s Six Figure Affiliate Blogging
If you want to have a step-by-step guide to the process of creating a profitable blog or website, this is the go-to report. Download it here, it’s completely free!
#2. Online Profits
If you want to have valuable information on growing your readership and learn how to make money online, this is a must-read. The lessons in the Online Profits training program have been produced by experts from different fields and specializations!
There’s no need to devour these reports right away, because maybe, all you need is a break. I know, because I’ve been there too. When you’re stuck in a blogging rut and your motivation is waning, take a short break and do the things that you enjoy and love. I recently read a very inspiring blogpost on “Time To Take A Break…” written by Ilka Flood, webmaster of The Enlightened Networker.
Take some time off and think about why you started your blog in the first place. When you’re ready and refreshed, schedule certain times within your week to read these reports for inspiration. You may just realize how much blogging meant to you in the beginning!
