Late Night Internet Marketing with Mark Mason -- Affiliate Marketing Tips, Online Business Advice, Email Marketing and SEO
This week, I offer sever procrastination tips for those of us that suffer from procrastination due to fear and uncertainty. You might not even realize it, but often times, procrastination can come not knowing what to do (uncertainty) or being afraid of the outcome (fear). Fear of failure is a common case of the latter. Do you suffer from procrastination? Do you know why? Understanding why you procrastinate is an important first step, and if you find that fear is the culprit then I have a few tips for you on how to over come that fear and get moving.
I also discuss Help Scout, which is my go-to solution for customer service.
As I mentioned in the episode, I will be hosting a special daily discussion of the coming ConvertKit Product Creation Masterclass in the Late Night Internet Marketing Facebook group. If you'd like to join us, just enroll in the free masterclass below.
If you are interested in creating your first product, this might be just what you need to get you over the hump.
Procrastination Tips Show Notes
Call the Fear Out – this is the first key to overcoming a fear-based procrastination. Shine a light on the fear as the bad guys always operate in the dark. These fears that create procrastination only exist because you have not examined them for what they are worth. Take the time to identify what your fear is and illuminate it to own it and recognize that it is not a big of a deal.
Have the Right Information – do a little more research for you to be successful in what you are focusing on but not too aggressively as this can turn into another form of procrastination.
Bite Off Small Chunks – eat the elephant one bite at a time. Operating in small chunks can be a way to push forward from what’s holding you back through the fears that you have which cause procrastination.
Support and Accountability – having people who you can talk to, to encourage you and to hold you accountable for making progress can be a big and important thing. People who had experienced your fears can help you work through this and that can be a very good advantage.
