Is your spouse excited about your affiliate marketing business?
If you are in a relationship and interested in starting or are already running an online business, it`s important getting the support from your spouse.
It will be more fun for both of you if you are both on the same page and excited about your online business.
My husband supports me 100% and it`s been making life a lot easier for me.
I know this is not always the case, I´ve had people reach out and ask how can I do this if my spouse is negative and don`t believe in my online business at all…
Some people are skeptical before they see the result, before they see the money coming in. If your spouse see the money then I`m sure there will be support :). It`s about getting them excited and supportive the first months before the money is there, that can be difficult sometimes.
I`m no relationship expert but here are a few tips that has worked for me and my husband. Hopefully you can get your spouse on board and excited about your affiliate business as well.
5 Ways to Get Your Spouse on Board the Affiliate Marketing Train
1. Involve Your Spouse
Try to explain to your spouse what it is you are doing. If your spouse has an understanding of what you do then it will be easier to involve your spouse in your business. Don`t be afraid to discuss ideas and suggestions, even if they don`t know all the ins and outs of affiliate marketing, s/he can still have great ideas and suggestions that can help you and your business. I enjoy discussing new ideas with my husband. Working by yourself can be lonely so involving your spouse can make it more fun.
2. Share Ups and Downs
Share your successes but also your down periods. Celebrate when you reach your goals and ask for a shoulder when things might not go your way. I am pretty hard on myself and if thing does not turn out the way I want to, I can get down. My husband then always remind me of what I have accomplished and created, all by myself…
To be honest I don`t think I could have done it without his support.
3. Be Honest with Your Spouse
Always be honest with your spouse. If you have a bad month don`t hide it, share it. Don`t say you have made money if you have not, wait for the moment to share that with him or her.
4. Be Realistic with Your Spouse
Be realistic with your self and your spouse. It will take time and effort to get your affiliate marketing business working and off the ground. It might take a few months before you start making money, know that and don`t hide that from your spouse. Commit to the time and effort it will take to make it work.
5. Schedule Your Time
If you work from home, sit down and create a schedule when you can work on your online business that will work for you, your spouse and family. Having a set time when you can work will help you move your business in the right direction.
