I want to share with you why most bloggers fail, don’t make money, and don’t succeed in the online space.
This failure is going to come to many people that don’t see things the right way or the way that they should.
Patience in Blogging
A lot of people, when it comes to blogging, see the money side that it’s fast. The reality is when it comes to blogging; a lot of the growth that’s going to happen is going to be slow.
It’s a slow growth process, and that money is going to come in tidbits. Eventually, things may accelerate and go faster. But this is what a lot of people want. They want fast money.
They want it quick, and they want it now. They want it yesterday. For people that are able to see the long term, this is where success will happen.
Whether you’re doing YouTube, blogging, Pinterest, social media, Twitter, the traffic starts slow. And then you might start getting some faster growth that accelerates. But it takes time.
It may take a year, two years, three years. And you have to have your mindset in place in the right way to making things work if you want to make things right and looking at it in a business way.
It’s not just about writing content. It’s not just about posting videos. It’s about having a whole ecosystem in place to making things work.
Most Common Blogging Mistakes
Most people don’t look at blogging like an ecosystem. They typically try YouTube, and when I try YouTube, I want to get some money. And I try that and maybe that doesn’t work.
And then they try affiliate marketing. That maybe brings in a little bit of cash, but it doesn’t work. You might have made $500 with an affiliate strategy. You might have made $200 with YouTube.
Maybe they will write a few ebooks. That way, they might make $100 here and there. But they don’t make enough money to make it sustainable for them. The truth is that they’re thinking about it the wrong way.
You’re thinking about it linearly. When a reality, all these things work together.
- affiliate marketing
The thing is YouTube starts to overlap with your ebooks. Affiliates start to overlap your courses. End everything is working together. This now is your ecosystem when you look at the bigger picture.
You have a business, and this surrounds it all together. This is one branch of your digital products where you’re selling your ebooks, courses. These are your products.
This might be other people’s products, which is your affiliates. And this might be your services. All these things start working together, and you might have a network of different blogs that serve and work with each other.
And that’s about thinking the bigger picture of a business in mind. When you look at any big company out there, they’re not just making money from one thing or one product.
The revenue starts coming from these different sources and looking at the bigger picture of the long term.
That’s what makes a business, and that’s what makes a successful blogger. It also makes a successful online entrepreneur.
