When building your business online it is inevitable you will encounter unexpected problems and delays! As an internet marketer you'll likely have many work responsibilities therefore these problems can really delay or hinder your success, or will they? For many entrepreneurs their focus can be so keen on completing the task at hand that when they hit a snag or encounter a delay they tend to freeze! Well this throws your work productivity right out the window unless of course you adapt, adjust and move on! Here's 3 ways any internet marketer can make the best of a bad situation when the unexpected happens, which by the way you can expect!

Revert Back to Your Daily Plan

Firstly if you encounter a problem and there's something you can do about it then do it but if it's a delay revert to your 'to do list' and tackle the next item! There's always something to do so move on to whatever it is that needs your attention that's next on your list! You can easily maintain your work productivity even if you're knock off your original plan, you may just simply need to complete things in a different order than you planned! Don't allow delays or problems that may take time to resolve stop you in your tracks! As an internet marketer there will ALWAYS be something that requires your attention so tend to it and come back later to complete what you were doing!

Improve Yourself

Take advantage of the 'down' time by learning new skills or furthering your education since both of these things will always require your time! Read through those newsletters you've gotten backed up on or master that new software tool that will help boost your work productivity! Sometimes plans are like records and were meant to be broken, it's simply a matter of how you respond to the disruption as to whether it will be a gain or loss! Jump at the chance whenever you can to improve yourself since you are your business!

Catch Up Elsewhere

Certain things like catching up on your email or responding to comments at one of your blogs are not high priorities but should be addressed! Personally I don't value these tasks much for increasing my work productivity which by the way can define how successful you become as an internet marketer, but these tasks can't be ignored either! It's best to consider things like this as low priority research that may yield a nugget or two of useful information so keep your eyes and mind open to what you may find!

When building your business online learn to expect that there will be setbacks but as an internet marketer you can't allow them to delay your progress! If you encounter problems that can be fixed do so and move on but if there's little you can do then simply tackle one of the many other work responsibilities awaiting you! As an entrepreneur you will never be at a loss for something to do so when you hit a snag that keeps you from completing a task move to another, as suggested above, to maintain your work productivity! You sometimes will have little control over in what order you complete projects or tasks, but as an internet marketer the key is to continue moving forward by simply focusing on something else!
