Affiliate Marketing is not a job

I got a question from one of my subscribers, the question was ‘How do I do this job?’  I asked her which job?  she said affiliate marketing.My answer was simple, affiliate marketing is not a job.

Affiliate marketing  is not a job

This is why affiliate marketing is not a job

Do you remember when you got your job? someone had to interview you, pick you, tell you what to do, someone writes you a paycheck etc.

When you became an affiliate marketer you don’t apply. You don’t get a salary. No one picks you. Bragging about how much money you’ve raised or what your valuation is a form of job thinking.

Affiliate marketing is your chance to trade a solution to someone who has a problem that needs solving.Solve more problems, solve bigger problems, solve problems more widely and you’re an affiliate marketer and entrepreneur.

This is a reason why most people fail

Doing affiliate marketing as a job is the main reason why most people fail in this business, being a full-time affiliate marketer means there is no one to check on you, no one to force you to work, no one to check on your results, as a result, most people they don’t take action or they do very little and they end up failing.

What happened to my blog posts?

If you visited my blog before, you will find out that all my blog posts are gone, and this is what happened in the last few days.

What happened to my blog posts?

I wanted to change a hosting account.

When I realized that my siteground hosting account was coming to an end, I decided to change to wpxhosting.

Guys from wpxhosting there were kind enough to offer to transfer all my blogs to their hosting for free, all they wanted was the information for my websites to make the move happen, and yes I did that, I gave them the access to all my blog except on this one.

The reason why I didn´t give them information on this blog.

I just wanted to transfer it for myself, I have done this many times, so my thinking was, I can move one blog and let them move the rest and as was my favorite blog it was logic to do it myself (I have moved it from hostgator to siteground myself).

It was a mistake

I had a confidence that I could do it in less than an hour, so I backed all information in my computer (it was another mistake), started uploading information, changed DNS, everything was seemed perfect, upon finalizing the process I intentionally deleted information that was in my computer (my blog was online and live).

In order to prevent hackers, I had to remove order files from the server and in doing so I deleted new files too (accidentally) and everything was gone.

I tried my best to recover the information, but I couldn’t, so I had to start over and install new WordPress and creating new content, this is the reason you may not find the old blog posts.

Lessons from this experience

From this experience I learned two things, firstly, let the experts do the job, especially if they are doing it for free, secondly, save the backups of your files in your computer (never delete them) or save them in the cloud.
