Every bloggers dream is to make money blogging either full-time or part-time on his blog.
But what I see is that only a small fraction of those blogging for money really ended up with something or a blog to call business. I mean a blog that generates good income to run your responsibilities and gives you financial security.
That’s a kind of blog we’ll dream of, but in many cases, millions of bloggers just feel tired of the journey and park their bags and baggages, then quit this blogging thing.
Well, I guess there is a kind of misinformation somewhere or you were just told one of those artificial lie in blogging. Either you’ve started blogging or about to start but as long as you haven’t found your rhythm in professional blogging this article is for you.
The point listed below are not what I read to be true about why you’ll never make money blogging but are my personal experience during the course of my struggle in finding ways, strategies, tactics and how to make money blogging so I can call it quit with my day job and live full-time on my blog without having fear of financial insecurity.
10 Facts Why You’ll Never Make Money Blogging.
#1. If You Can’t Invest Both Time And Money.
Internet business gulp very little capital to start with, but I think that fact too need more of analysis and clarifications.
If you’re to start an e-commerce site and really aim at bringing your business to the attention of your targeted audience, you’re going to need a reasonable amount of investment both in creating a professional e-commerce site and advertising.
Unless you’re just having fun online, then you can join the school of thought that says internet business is no capital business.
You’re going to need money for things like domain name, hosting, auto-responder, advertising, social media marketing expert running and maintenance of your blog if you can’t handle it on your own.
I said both time and money, yes, to run a successful internet business campaign you’re going to invest in both.
Your time is the first most crucial ingredient you’ll need online and the money is there for out-sourcing, buying attentions and other services that make sure the progress of your business.
#2. If You See it as a Get Rich Quick Scheme.
Unfortunately, folks will ever think blogging is a get rich quick scheme until they touch it with a one miter pole in their hand and first hand they can tell exactly what blogging truly is.
Blogging is hard, very hard and tiresome job. The earlier you know and accept this, the better.
#3. If You Want Money Fast.
Truly you maybe aware that blogging is not a get rich quick scheme, but some how you find yourself in need of an urgent cash.
No, don,t just think your blog is going to manufacture the needed cash straight away.
Blogging is a business, and you must understand that first. Like any other known business, sometime sales jump and incomes flows in as expected and sometime it just don’t. Blogging is no exception.
#4. If You Can’t Stick to a Project for One Year.
Based on personal experience in the blogging industry, and couple with the success stories of successful bloggers I’ve read, is obvious you need at least 10 to 12 months to be patient with making money from your blogging.
During this time you’ll need to learn how blogging works, the ins and out.
Learn from others, read relevant blogs and the rest.
#5. If You Depend on Freebies.
I just can’t see how you’re going to make money out of nothing. No input, no output. Is just that simple.
I know there are lots of good free stuffs on the internet, I too, used them. But if you want quality stuffs that gives you what you want and you gain control over its usage and flexibility then buy premium services.
If you want your blog to stand out from among the sea of blogs, then don’t settle for less.
#6. If You Hate Networking.
No, stop it. The internet has change the definition of the world and the way we interact and meets people.
Is far less now easier to share things with just about anyone anywhere in the world. This makes networking with each other more convenient than ever.
So why not stop that crap of alone sitting in your comfort zone.
To survive in any endeavour you need people who will help you with one thing or the other. The internet has made it easier than ever, take advantage.
In my next blog post, I will write more on social networking qualities.
Keep a date with us.
#7. If You’re Afraid of Losing.
Well, maybe this one reason you prefer going for free stuffs over premium quality products.
You’re thinking what if it doesn’t work the way I had expected. what if people don’t buy? What if the advert placement doesn’t bring in quality leads? What if I don’t make profits on investment?
Oh! this questions are best answered only if you had tried and see for yourself the outcome of your investment.
But if you relate someone else situation with your career, and that serves as your yard sticks for measuring your own actions on your business, then you’re not sincere with yourself.
Peter is not Paul, though they are both born same minutes from same womb but they both have different life to live.
#8. If You Hate Writing.
Sorry, but writing is all what make a good blog successful. If you hate writing, there are two distinctive ways of finding your way out:
One is to learn how to write for blog, cause writing for blogs on the internet is much different from writing for the magazine or the newspapers.
Two is to out source this task to freelance writers.
But I tell you the truth, better learn how to write content for online marketing if you care for a sustainable internet business.
At least you’ll know it when your freelance writer submit a good job or a bad one.
#9. If You Hate Hard Job or You’re Lazy.
Get this straight and accept it, blogging is a very, very hard cumbersome job. If you don’t like sitting in front of your computer for hours daily, blogging is not for you.
If you hate handling technical issues and don’t want to learn it, blogging is not for you. If you can’t focus on a single task and see it through before jumping on to the next, think deeply if blogging is quite for you.
I can go on name the if, but just one more left today that I want to share with you and that is
#10. If You Want to Do It All on Your Own.
Like I said above, you need people to help you achieve your dream in life not just blogging.
I once read this lines from a blog, though I forgot exactly who the author was and the blog too. But can’t forget the lines “A blogger is as good as those around him” Don’t even think you can do it all alone, it never happen and will never happen.
