Why your blog ain’t making money online!

Not making money online

making money online

Making money online or are there zeros in your Google Adsense reports?

Wonder why your blog ain’t making money online? Have you started a blog and can’t stop checking your ad accounts, affiliate marketing stats, etc.? Well, there are many variables that contribute to whether or not your blog will make money. Also, if your blog is brand new, calm down…Rome wasn’t built overnight, but when it was built, it was beautiful and that is what to expect from you blog!

Why are you blogging? My advice is write the content for your readers. If you take care of your readers, you will be taken care of; it’s how the world works, the golden rule, and on and on. Every so often you may need to have a reality check regarding why you started blogging in the first place. Remember the adage, Do what you love and you will never work a day in your life. If your blogging for the money, then you are “working”. If you are blogging and you love it, you are not working! You get the picture.

You love blogging but there’s no traffic

Any experienced blogger will tell you that they started out and there were rough patches. Even the greats have documented how it took some time before they quit their jobs. My only question and it comes from a recent post discussing pre-launch blog posts. Do the bloggers who had tons of prelaunch content make money faster than their counterparts who simply purchase a domain and set up a blog and write a few post sporadically? If this applies to you please feel free to comment and contribute to the discussion or existing knowledge base around this.

Back to the traffic piece, we have to realize that there are hundreds of thousands of blogs. Also, algorithms have changed and this is what part of what made me stop blogging years ago. Unless you invented the niche you blog about, there is thousands of other bloggers competing with you for search engine results and organic traffic.

Ok you have read my other posts and what about people who get traffic from Pinterest? Again, there are thousands of bloggers across many niches and you are competing with them as well. Stay encouraged because what’s unique about blogging is that each blogger is unique and has a different approach to sharing content. It’s like books on self help, there is Think and Grow Rich, The Power of your Subconscious Mind, Psycho-cybernetics, You are the Placebo, and thousands more sharing similar messages, and that doesn’t include pillars where lots of beliefs originated such as Stoicism. Again, lots of competition.

What drives you?

Ironically, the athlete in me keeps me going and ultimately I’m driven by the competition. When I had my college football blog and I was just starting out, a former teammate told me, I’m not going to support your site because I don’t think your successful. That was very motivational. Another example, my wife and I were remodeling our home to put it on the market. We got a few quotes around $25k. I say it everyday, the best thing they could’ve done was give us a quote!

Once I got those outrageous quotes and I even got offers for finances, I was like No Way! Next thing you know my wife and I began taking off window trim with pry bars and pulling out window sashes. We ended up replacing 10 windows with no experience. Total cost right under $2k. We are driven by competition and I personally like to do the impossible. So going back to my teammates comment, my mentality instantly became

“Watch me be successful and make money online the easy way!”

Making money online takes work and strategic planning. For example, in my post titled Making Money Online During Covid-19 Pandemic, I laid out a strategy for accomplishing this. I also posted about making money in minutes from my bed, that post was titled Holy Crap!!! I made $10 in 3 minutes from my bed!. Anyhow the point I’m making is, everyone can accomplish this but it requires planning and putting structures in place. Just a quick recap, in those post I talk about automating your money making approach.

For example, on Fiverr and on my website The-Professional-Proofreader.com, I have a setup that allows clients to purchase proofreading and editing services from me without interacting with me. In some cases, customers purchase proofreading services from me, I complete the job and send it back, and they don’t even say thank or mark the order complete (but I still get paid). So you have to put systems in place. I’ll finish this section on this note, a blog that monetizes from advertisements and affiliate marketing links has structures in place where the blogger doesn’t have to be present for them to be making money online = automation. 

Keep writing

No matter what is happening regarding your blog traffic, keep writing. It’s like when I was getting my doctorate, the advice was write everyday regardless of how you are feeling, just write. One thing I have learned is sometimes what you think is the best writing, is actually your worst. How many of us have written what we thought would be a viral post? What happened?

In addition to blogging, explore other opportunities for making money online. You may need to start freelancing. Maybe you write your blog posts using html, this means you can create an ebook teaching html basics or create a job on Fiverr where you will do html coding for someone. Maybe you had a life changing experience and your story needs to be told, write the book. If you are thinking you can’t write, use your phone’s text to speech feature and speak your story and pay someone (Me –My Fiverr page) to edit your book! 

In closing, stick with it. The fact that you are exploring what is happening with your blog is a great step in the right direction. As a leader, I tell people all the time, the easiest thing to do is quit. It’s hard to stick with something when you’re not seeing the desired results. You may be 1 post, 1 week, or 1 month away from seeing that traffic explosion to your blog! Hang in there. Keep me posted please comment below and share your stories!

I made $10 in 3 minutes from my bed! Holy Crap!!!

Last night, I made $10 in 3 minutes from my bed!!! I was ecstatic, that is why I just had to publish this post!

As I lay in bed, and my wife and I were preparing to watch Waco on Netflix, I got an alert on my phone from Fiverr. It was a repeat customer asking me if I could do express editing!!!

I made $10 in 3 minutes

I made $10 in 3 minutes from my bed!

As you can see from the screenshot, my phone was dying and I had placed it on the charger only moments before. I also turned the sound alert off for Fiverr notifications for the night so not to wake anyone up. 

A Bright Screen!!!

But once my phone screen illuminated, all I could think of was “Money, Money, Money, Money” – Theme song of Ted Dibiase The Million Dollar Man (back when wrestling was good)! 

Anyhow this request was perfect timing. My wife got up to brush her teeth. I downloaded the document titled “4” (from screenshot) and created a $10 offer. The document was 6 sentences long and the spelling, word choice, and grammar were all awful. 

Google Docs helps me make money in minutes!

$10 in 3 minutes from my Iphone

I made $10 in 3 minutes from my Iphone!!!

While working in Google Docs suggestion mode to track changes, I made corrections in about 1 minute. Create the clean copy of the document in about 1 minute. And in minute 3 the document was already sent back to my customer!!! I awoke this morning to another 5 star review! 

That’s how I made $10 in 3 minutes from my bed!

Ironically, I discovered that there is a guy who goes by the name “Coffee Shop Millionaire” doing the exact same thing, just from a coffee shop. My challenge to him is I don’t have to leave my bed! However, please consider his approach as his system may work for you as well!

One very important tool I have mentioned above and also in previous blogs is Google Docs. Google Docs is very convenient because it allows users to work off of a smartphone! Also, best of all, it’s free!!!

Let this post serve as further evidence that I make $100 per day online!

Moving forward, this post is a miniature carry over from yesterday’s post Easily Make $100 Per Day Online Without a Computer Right Now! The reason I say this is because first, that $10 is added to the income I accumulated for yesterday. Second, because I am trying to communicate to all of my readers out their how you can easily make $10 in 3 minutes while in your beds, drinking your coffee, waiting in line somewhere, in your car parked somewhere, etc. I made money in minutes, imagine if I keep this up, the possibilities to Make Money Online During Covid-19 Pandemic are endless.

This goes back to how to Instantly Increase Online Earning Potential. If you have a smartphone and/or internet access, you can do this! In closing, please share this post and also leave comments regarding your progress, roadblocks, questions, concerns, etc. and I will certainly reply!



Thank you again for tuning in! See you next time!

Make Money Online During Covid-19 Pandemic

Businesses along with public places may be closed due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, but there are still ways to Make Money Online During Covid-19. Furthermore, there are businesses that just haven’t ceased their operations, and those are online business including but not limited to Fiverr, Upwork, Freelancer.com, and many others. Most people hear the word job security at a time like this and we can agree it seems up in arms. But what about “online job security?” Amazon has even increased their hiring, same with Instacart. My Fiverr income was seeing record highs leading up to the Pandemic becoming widespread by March (2020) of this year. 

There is one thing that has remained constant for me through all of this: I must continue to make money online during the Covid-19 Pandemic. This will keep money in my savings account and it will also reduce my credit card balance, keeping my credit score improving each month.
