Earning money is really not a very big deal these days, especially when the generation X of today have blogging by their side. Its been years I have been blogging on and on and today I have huge fan following, the reason being that I have stayed by my aim to serve my audience the right knowledge with purpose. Many of the websites today launched with much fan fare but they don’t go to the extent making it big in the industry, this generally happens when people don’t apply the perfect knowledge they have, blogging requires skills, skills to write, skills to run the website, SEO skills, networking skills, marketing skills and the list goes endless. Some people have their blogging sites pertaining to particular niches, they have created this niche for themselves because they are expert in it and can answer any questions raised by their readers.
When we know a particular website caters to something specific it is but natural people are going to turn to that website for information. Similarly, today there is huge craze for earning money through blogging we know for sure and there are also many sites teaching people how to go about it and now this particular niche of teaching their readers to make money makes the site famous because it has something which every one wants, EARNING $$$. The website teaching to make money has huge number of readers followed by other useful information posted on the site and so the site goes on making profits, though some people might not want to share this information, “how to earn”. For them I simply want to tell, if you don’t somebody else will tell them and it’s a misconception that if you share such secret your site will stop making any profits, for now you should be only thinking of ways to make your site popular amongst your readers and third party audiences.
There are lots of things where people can, would or has gone wrong in attempts to make money on teaching people “how to make money”, some of them are listed below:
- Some people come out of nowhere, launch their sites for teaching people to make money when they themselves have not earned a single $. This is the case with so many people, every one wants to copy someone who is making good money and without thinking or pre planning they go and then fail.
- Although we want to make money through blogging, don’t start your blogging business with the soul aim of
earning money through it. Have passion for interacting with people and providing them with useful information.
- The big mistake you do in your blogs network is to keep posting ads for affiliate products for making profits, if your site looks very clumsy full of ads no one would like reading your actual blogs and as a result you will have zero number of visitors.
