Top 3 Reasons Your Blog Is Not Making Any Money [What to Do Instead]

A lot of people have this wrong notion or mentality from the very beginning that the main reason of starting a blog is for them to make money. Starting a blog with the mentality of plainly earning money is a perfect way to determine that sooner or later the blog will fail. What you need to do in the first place is to treat your blog just like any other business. It is only during this time that you will be able to invest a significant amount of money in order to boost your income or earnings.


If you are just starting up on a blog, you must remember that you need to invest in order to make money online. It is not an easy path, but it will be worth your time, money, and effort if you do it correctly. There is nothing wrong in aspiring to gain money with a blog. You just have to couple it with the desire to help others and let others benefit from your blog. As long as you enjoy helping others with the use of your blog, you won’t have a hard time gaining money from it. There is an estimate of 90% of the total bloggers you have the same mentally and because of this mentality, the blog is dragged down to its death. To prevent your blog from experiencing its natural death, here are some of the ways on what to do in order to make more money from your blog.

No Goal

Every successful person has a goal or vision. Without any vision or goal, you will never be able to know the direction you will be going. The worst scenario is that you will even end up running in circles. The right goal or vision will also help create a good content that will serve or benefit your audience.

Not The Right Seekers

Building an exceptional blog that will make you money is not that easy as it seems. If you want to truly create a successful and worthwhile blog that can make money for you, you must remember that you have to protect your blog from all those freebie seekers because it will not do you any good.

You can never deny the fact that creating freebies like videos, eBooks, plugins, videos, and the like can really attract a huge number of email subscribers. But, when you look at it thoroughly, what your blog does is to give away freebies. The subscribers will no longer purchase any from your blog nor will your blog generate any revenue. Although freebie seekers can help you when you start your blog, it is advisable that you should slowly eliminate all those freebies because it will only be bad for your blog business in the long run.

It is said that you should cut your freebies as soon as possible because when you have all these freebies and you start to engage with your subscribers, it will only create more bonding that will consume your time in answering the their different problems rather than concentrating on the progress of your blog.

There are always pros and cons in everything you do. Just focus on the pros and eliminate the cons or learn to make it as one of your pros.

No Enough Promotion

Tons of people spend their time on making or writing content articles instead of promoting it. No matter how good your article is, if you don’t promote it, nothing will happen. It will not benefit you nor will it generate any funds.

It is worth remembering that you have to dedicate the majority of your time in promoting the content written on your blog. If possible, you can even hire a content writer, so that there will be someone else to focus on the contents.
