    Hi,

    Have you ever had writers block except for internet marketing or business? That's exactly what's happening to me right now and I don't know how to fix it.

    I have a game plan for my business and I'm trying to find innovative sources of traffic that no one in the business has thought of...

    If you've had this how did you get over it?

    I'm both a writer and a marketer so it does happen to me.

    For writing, what I usually do is I stop forcing it and I start doing something completely different. Either I watch some videos on YouTube or read a book. After 1 episode or 30 mins, I go back to writing. It works.

    For marketing... It's a little bit tricky. Because if you have a method that you know you want to implement, you should go for it, even if you had sudden cold feet. Sometimes we as marketers are trying to force the issue. Sometimes it's better to keep it simple and just execute.

    Remember, ideas are crap without EXECUTION. So if ever you find yourself having a "marketer's block" in thinking of ways to grow your traffic, just go back to basics and start implementing something. Find the lowest hanging fruit and take action. Cause eventually, those innovative ideas will start coming to you.
