ADHD in the Affiliate Marketing Industry

by Missy Ward in Affiliate Marketing   &  ,  

It seems like more and more adults are beginning to publicly share (and embrace) their ADHD (Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) diagnosis.

Many others openly speak about their ADHD symptoms, but have not been tested by a trained professional.

ADHD in the Affiliate Marketing Industry

As someone who has been impacted with ADHD since childhood, I can tell you first-hand that the negative aspects of ADHD can be obliterating. However, it is possible to leverage them to your advantage with the right mindset, tools and people who support you.

It doesn't come easy, but it can be done. And, it's a lifelong commitment.

Do ADHD Birds of a Feather Flock Together?

For the last 9 years, Affiliate Summit has released their annual AffStat report, shedding light on the folks that make their living in the affiliate marketing industry. Each year, I eagerly await the results to compare and contrast against my demographics, my marketing techniques, trends I see, etc.

What I've noticed is that my answers are very much the same as the majority of the respondents. Naturally, my ADHD brain naturally had to consider the implications of those results.

  • Do a lot of affiliate marketers have diagnosed (or unidentified) ADHD, too?
  • How do they view it? A blessing or a curse?
  • How has ADHD impacted their successes and failures as related to the affiliate marketing industry?

Take the ADHD in the Affiliate Marketing Industry Survey

If you earn money in the affiliate marketing industry and have received a diagnosis of ADHD by a trained professional or believe that you may have ADHD but have not been tested, I invite you to participate in the ADHD in the Affiliate Marketing Industry survey.

No personally identifiable information is being collected and responses must be received by 11:45pm ET on May 31, 2014.

Excerpts derived from survey will be used in aggregate in an upcoming article I am writing for FeedFront Magazine. If you'd like to receive the full results of the survey please feel free to send me an email.

PS – It only took me 5 minutes to make this graphic and 15 minutes to write this post — because I really wanted to. Those that ADHD will get this.
