Creating Content vs. Creating Content as an Affiliate Marketer
It's incredible how creating content has become so prevalent in my daily thoughts. I have a long way from truly laying out much more cerebral pieces, but I'm stuck between a lot of street smart and some school smarts; my degree has zilch to do with writing.
I've been told on occasion I have a way with words, I've been told I would make a great salesman and I have written some killer love letters in my lifetime. If you combine these three things and the street smarts, creating content should be a breeze.
Don't get me wrong, this post isn't about a fear of creating content. This post is about figuring out if I just focus on being myself and let things organically play out or do I manipulate my content to help me reach my goal of being a long-term successful affiliate marketer?
Now, that is the conundrum for me; because I believe I rather take longer to reach my goals creating content based on Jimmy Adames than try to create it being Jimmy Adames, the Affiliate Marketer. It sounds dumb as I'm posting this, but it's exactly how I feel.
The last thing I want to do is overthink it, but the wonder of coming onto HIVE and being a proud member of CLICK.TRACK.PROFIT is how much I now value content creation now, so I start beating myself up about the time I wasted not honing those skills that were there that would have led to this time in my life where my words would be impactful.
I am a fairly confident person with just a handful of flaws 😆, so all this will sort itself out; as long as I keep doing what is preached by so many on this platform. Create content, engage and show up!
It's just one piece of that puzzle that is missing for me that if I place it correctly, may make the biggest difference in what I know will be a successful journey.

Having just begun my journey through Click.Track.Profit. I can sympathize.
The Hive experience could definitely be improved by becoming more systematic with the time spent here. Never mind the rewards. Properly planned and executed posts maximize the value one offers audiences. As our success is based on how much value we offer, it makes sense to be more intentional with our posts.
Actually @travelwritemoney we absolutely have that platform here to choose specific communities that will fit what you want. You are not bound to just one big platform and then hope. My personal dilemma is that yes, I want to reach goals as an affiliate marketer, but rather create content as myself and not so much an affiliate marketer. I know it sounds contradictory, but being myself in whatever I do represents freedom and I value freedom - A LOT.
Always be yourself you will be more fulfilled and have fun along the journey
#truth and about the focus too 👍🏽
Creating content is always a challenge but should also always have a focus.
