Sometimes online marketing is like gambling. No matter what you do you cannot get ahead. Get some activity and you are looking for more. Not getting enough activity makes you fearful. This is similar to winning and losing at gambling. Win and you want to go back and gamble your winnings. Lose and you think you are due a win. Either way you go back and try again. This is a spin. Doing the same thing over and over, when it really makes no sense. How do we avoid the spin?
Good question… but there is hope. Consider what you do that is productive and what you do that is not productive. Going into Google Analytics 6 times a day is not productive. Posting your link on a new website is. Looking for a new lead every 10 minutes is not productive. Writing a new blog post is. Do you see the difference?
