Why Many Blogger Don’t Make Money Blogging (And Ways To Change It)
Let me start you off by saying this simple truth:
· You will never make money as a blogger if you don’t understand blogging and continue to do the wrong things.
Albert Einstein’s great quip sums this up –
Many new bloggers are lost in thoughts of making millions of dollars online, getting AdSense approval immediately and spend time in expensive hotels eating the best meals. While this is a thing to achieve, it sure takes a lot of guts and time in getting to this place of tremendous achievement.
He was right if you ask me.
Your blog isn’t a money printing machine; rather, it’s a tool used for reaching the world with your valuable products/services… and possibly making money in the process.
Of course, You must be willing to go through the process patiently, and if you do, success will surely come.
The latter part of the quote paints a typical blogging situation- someone who has a chance at becoming one of the most respected people in the annals of the world but loses out by reasons of .
In this post, I will reveal to you the reasons why you will not make money blogging in 2021. Aside from that, I’ll also show you how you can reverse this and build a money-making blog right now.
Why many blogger don’t Make Money Blogging (And way’s To change It)
Now, before I explain what a business model is and how to set up one for your business, let me quickly tell you why the lack of one is ruining your blogging business.
When you don’t have a system or a plan that encourages or pushes you to take the necessary actions in your business, you risk losing your enthusiasm and passion which will eventually result in the death of your blog.
The term “business model” can be defined in so many ways…
For the sake of this tutorial, I will describe a business model simply as a or for the successful operation of a business, the intended customer base, the identified revenue sources, products, and sources of financing.
Similarly, : “an abstract representation of a business, be it conceptual, textual, and/or graphical, of all core interrelated architectural, co-operational, and financial arrangements designed and developed by an organization presently and in the future, as well as all core products and/or services the organization offers, or will offer, based on these arrangements that are needed to achieve its strategic goals and objectives.”
One of the mistakes often made by bloggers is in thinking that a business model is all about saying: “I want to make money.”
Honestly, if you put the “making money” thing as the primary reason for starting your business, you’re already doomed.
Money shouldn’t be your focus when starting out online as a blogger. The focus should be on creating systems; that includes creating a valuable and significant content that takes a reader from where they are to where they ought to be.
Distilling it down, a good business model will let you:
· Identify who your target audience is.
· Identify revenue sources.
· Figure out how to serve your customers. (With text, videos, audios, sliders, images, infographics, etc.?)
· Identify products to create that will further educate your audience on what you currently teach them via your blog posts. (Example: You can create and sell an eBooks, creating WordPress plugins and themes, .)
· Identify where will you get funds and how will you continue to invest in your business to stay relevant in the marketplace.
· Find the best promotional strategies to get your business out there.
These are just to consider when creating a plan/model for your business.
This is a very important step when starting out as a blogger.
You give it maximum attention.
As I mentioned, you will never make a single dime blogging if you concern yourself too much about making money.
Making money from blogging does not come overnight. I’ve been in the internet marketing and blogging niche longer than most of you, and I’ve seen anyone that launched one day and started seeing money roll in the next day.
It doesn’t happen.
Forget all those adverts hovering over the web about how Emmy made $$$$$$ within 48 hours of launching his business. If it actually worked that way, everyone would be doing it.
Here’s what you need to remember:
If you’re serious about making money, learn to shift focus on wanting to be a quick and overnight success to providing a lot of value to your readers
Value is what sells you and your products, and it is what ultimately helps you to achieve your money-making goals.
According to Copyblogger,
I constantly get readers of EasyTutorialClass asking me:
· How do I make money blogging?
· How can I get traffic to my blog?
· How can I build influence and get blog engagements?
While all these questions are great, there’s always something
“How can I get traffic?”
“Is my blog capable of getting traffic?”
A lot of the time, people come into the online space to build blogs, publish some crappy content, and splash ads all over the place expecting to make lots of money.
Well, it doesn’t work like that!
You have got to push yourself really far by and if you want to in order to make money blogging.
For instance, if your article title or heading is not engaging and compelling enough, it won’t attract visitors to stop over and read the article. The same thing applies to your content; if it sucks, no one will want to engage with your blog.
You have to give people a good reason to leave your competitor’s site and read yours.
How do you do that?
It’s mostly about creating informative and entertaining content that readers will find hard to ignore.
Write in your own unique post, and soon, people will start noticing your unique and outstanding approach.
That’s when they will fall in love with you and make your blog their new dwelling place.
How To Make Your Blog A Success
If you take the time to really read through this post, you will definitely go from making nothing to making a substantial income as a blogger.
Many people are already doing it, and there’s no reason you can’t be doing it too.
You just need to make sure you’re doing the right things.
Don’t fall into the “make money online” trap. Nothing can replace hard work and dedication.
When people can see that you care about what you do, they’ll learn to respect and trust you as an authority in your niche.
When that happens, the money will start rolling in.
