I assume I am not the only one that feels hopeless & frustrated with adsense results at times. But as an eternal optimist I thought I would share some thoughts that might pick up someones day if they are having a bad one.
- This aint work. We make our livings (many of us) by staying at home, being with our kids, doing what we want when we want, and while it can be stressful we dont work hard for our money. Go spend a day roofing for $10 an hour, or digging a ditch, then tell me how much you love adsense.
- It is improving. If your doing it right it does get better each month, my rate of growth is basically 70% per month, but others do worse & better, but keep in mind your doing better then you were last month (hopefully)
- We have a community thanks to WW. I am new to this site, but I assure you as soon as google payment comes in I am paying for an account. I think its great that we can meet here and help each other out, even with just some good thoughts.
- Longevity. Despite what some old banner advertisers tell you this wont end tommorow. Google stock is still under valued even as it approaches $420, why? Because unlike banner advertisers, the people who we are selling clicks to are happy with thier ROI (return on investment for those unfamaliar with term) so I would estimate that we have 3-5 years of "good times" left. More then enough to set yourself up quite nice.
- In 1980 our lives would have been a fantasy to most working stiffs. Ok we dont make as much as we would like sometimes but many of us are over 5k or even 10k a month. And believe me there are many over 50k a month, why do they not post? If you had 50k a month income would you be reading this or sunning on your new boat?
The point is people lets take a minute and be really thankful for what we have. Sure payments are not always on time (hell I aint been paid in 3 months due to pin number) but I will never forget what it was like to see my kids going with out while I worked 50+ hours a week making 1/4 of what I make now. So smile, its getting better every day :)
please post any good thoughts you may have for others, if you wanna flame me do it in a sticky mail :)
