THE 4 REASONS WHY YOUR BLOG IS NOT MAKING MONEY
The GOOD NEWS is that new marketers fail for predictable reasons. If you can avoid those reasons, you can be successful online.
And that’s where this post comes in. It’s meant to steer you in the right direction. We’re going to be straight to the point.. No sugar coating.
So let’s get started…
REASON #1 – YOU DON’T HAVE A WEBSITE
There are loads of tools and courses out there that brag about not needing a website or hosting. I want you to know that they’re LYING to you. It’s profitable to tell people that something is easy. It’s not profitable to tell people that something takes a bit of work.
That’s why you won’t find many marketers telling you to get a website set up and running.
But let me ask you this… Have you ever heard of a single person making a living online WITHOUT a website? No! It just doesn’t happen.
I’ve been an internet marketer for nearly 18 years now, and I can’t think of a SINGLE example.
There are many reasons to build your own website. There’s not even one reason I can think of to put this step off.
You’ll need a website to:
» Host a landing page
» Create a blog
» Set up niche websites
» social media posts
» At the end of the day, everything starts and ends with a website.
Get one ASAP, or don’t expect anything to change.
REASON #2 – YOU’RE NOT HELPING PEOPLE
There’s always one thing I tell people that SHOCKS them. I’m about to share it with you..
Email marketing is NOT dead! Email marketing is without a doubt the best way to stay in touch with your subscribers and to help them grow their own business. The only way to grow your business is to help other people to grow their’s… Make sense?
There’s a lot of BS in regards to making money online.. I know, I’ve been beaten up by it for a long time too. That’s why it’s important to me to share the truth about what I’ve learned and to help as many people as I can to succeed too.
Sometimes the I offer things that are for sale. I do this because I feel they especially useful tools that can be used to make money online.. Sometimes there are other benefits.
The 2nd reason is that, well, that’s the business I’m in.. that’s how I get paid. But, don’t think for a minute that I would offer something to my customers or website visitors that I didn’t feel provided them great value.
One thing you should know about me is, I would never recommend anything to anyone that I didn’t believe would help them in some way. In most cases I use the very same products I promote because they work so well.
You will probably underestimate the power of helping.
It’s not your fault. You see would-be marketers (jokers) all day long trying to make a quick buck by slamming links down your throat. The reality is that people buy from real people (or brands) they know and trust.
START BY HELPING PEOPLE
Tony Robbins said, “help people get what they want and they’ll make you rich.”
He also said,
Did you know that HostGator pays affiliates up to $125 per hosting sale?
That means that you could help somebody set up hosting in about 10 minutes, and end up making a $125 commission.
How many would you have to do a day to replace you current income?
Heping people is the only real solution to earning an online income.. and it works!
REASON #3 – YOU’RE JUMPING INSTEAD OF FINE-TUNING
This is a really big one… The truth. And I did it in the beginning as well. The results were devastating.
When you learn how to do something new online, the instinct is to keep looking for something else. There are a couple reasons for this behaviour, but the main one is that a new strategy is not going to be successful right away.
Rome, as they say, wasn’t built in a day. Your online business won’t be either. Whether your thing is list building, blogging or building niche sites. The key is to pick something, and then stick with it.
Let me share a life story…
I’m a list builder. Like every other email marketer, I learned the biz from scratch. When I started list building a couple years ago, I used to lose my shirt.
I’d set up a funnel, buy some traffic and LOSE money. It sounds terrible, right? Well within three months, I was able to “fine-tune” and tweak things to make a profit.
Most of us know that if you can make a profit in list building — it’s game over. If for every $1 you spend, you make $2. Well, you can build an unlimited subscriber list on near autopilot. But you’re not going to make it to that point overnight.
It’s the little things that make the BIG DIFFERENCE! I’ll bet you don’t hear that everyday. It’s small tweaks like these that make the difference between making money and LOSING IT.
Over time, you should be able to tweak ONE asset enough to make a profit. Focus on that. Don’t switch to something else.
REASON #4 – INFORMATION OVERLOAD
It’s an information age, and it’s spoiling your road to success. Make no mistake about it. This is a problem.
Remember that most people don’t make money online. But it’s profitable for business to pretend that they are… and to do that, you need to teach people.
The dangerous part is when unsuccessful marketers are telling you how to run a business. If it didn’t work for them, it’s not going to work for you.
Yes, you should help people. I made a strong case for that in reason #2. But please, limit your help to things that you actually know about.
Anybody with half an hour on their hands could learn how to set up hosting. Trying to tell somebody how to make $1,500. 00 in the next 32 seconds is not something you learn in a day. Heck, it’s not something most people learn in a lifetime.
The problem is that this information overload is inevitable… it just happens. You should only listen to advice from a mentor that you know you can trust.
I show new students every week EXACTLY what I do to make $5k+/month. It’s not rocket science. And it doesn’t include any fluff, BS or falsehoods either. Whether they like it or not, it’s the truth. If they wanted to be lied to they came to the wrong place.
Whatever you do, make sure that you learn from someone that knows what they are talking about.
Otherwise you could waste years copying “wantra-preneurs” pretending to hold the “one secret” to owning that Lamborghini and expensive watches. Or worse yet, maybe even become one yourself.
You may think you already know how to make money online.
Heck, you might even have made a few dollars. But, you will not make life changing money until you stop making these same mistakes.
These are the 4 reasons your blog is not making money. They affect most us and they even messed with me in the beginning. I wasted years moving around from one shiny new method to the next. Only to find out that I wasn’t going to get anywhere until I took action from someone that knows their stuff.
I genuinely hope this post inspires you to make a change.
In the end, it’s the small focussed differences that separate the winners from the wana-bees.
