Cuong wants to be honest with you that most bloggers do not earn money!
And most bloggers give up blogging job ... after 6 months!
Why? Is blogging make money is too hard?
Exactly! This is a very difficult job.
But the opposite will be extremely interesting ... if you pass the 6 months and start enjoying the feeling ... woa !!! Blogging can help you make money while you sleep!
In a previous article Cuong shared about 5 ways to help make money from blogs but in this article Cuong will share with you 5 mistakes will make you not earn money from blogging work.
If you are a blogger, so let's see if you make the following mistakes. If there's one, that's probably why you're not earning money from your blog.
MISTAKE # 1: YOU ARE FOCUSED ON YOURSELF THAT FORGETS YOUR READERS
Most people come to your blog not because they care about who you are? What to write ...?
They care about one thing: Are you and your blog helping them solve the problem they are having?
They are having a health problem, they are facing diabetes so they come to your blog to seek help and learn how to live with diabetes. (if your blog is about diabetes)
They do not have a blog and it has been 6 months and they have not earned a penny from the blog so look to your blog to see if there is a way to earn money or not? (if your blog is about how to make money from blogs)
Therefore, if you are helping your readers by providing them with solutions that they are interested in, they will more and more stick to them and introduce your blog to others.
But most bloggers do not understand this, they focus too much on themselves and forget about their readers. That is the style of blogging 10 years ago, that is you write about yourself, write today what, what to eat, where to write. Write about your dog, your cat, what it eats, your birthday ...
That's the kind of blogging for fun, not blogging to make money!
So if you want to write a blog to make money forget about yourself, forget about your dog, your cat and concentrate on writing to your readers and writing about their dogs, cats!
MISTAKE # 2. YOU ARE NOT CONNECTED TO YOUR READERS
Indeed, blogging requires a huge connection.
Readers need to know who is behind this blog? What is their story? Is there a reason they need to read and listen to your advice?
Cuong's experience shows that you will quickly become a trusted and beloved blogger if you are willing to share your personal story. That story can be described in your blog's introductory page or in each of your daily articles, even the way you address your readers.
If you notice that, Cuong always uses the word "you" instead of "you" in all posts. With this vocabulary the reader always feels that you are talking to only one person, writing for them alone.
Using your own name instead of "me" is also a way to increase the connection (such as Cuong), if not using the name, use the word "I" "yourself", never use the word " we".
When you use the word "we", your readers will feel they are "facing" a group of people and they feel you are not really responsible for what you share.
In a nutshell, keeping a good connection helps increase trust and when it comes to belief, it is very simple to introduce or sell something for them to make money.
MISTAKE # 3: YOU ARE TOO IMPATIENT TO MAKE MONEY
This is a common mistake!
Most of the time we all set up blogs with the goal to make money!
It is not wrong, but it will fail if you are too impatient to make money when your blog is too new, not provide enough value and not build enough confidence for your target audience.
Cuong fish with you that it is difficult to make money in the first 3 months and more difficult if in those 3 months you have not got at least 20 posts are really valuable.
And if there is only luck!
So Cuong really advise if ...
You are in need of a quick money making solution then building a blog will not be an option for you.
But if ...
You want to help people, want a sustainable solution, passive and really interesting blogging is a great solution.
MISTAKE # 4: YOU DO NOT REALLY UNDERSTAND WHAT YOUR READERS ARE INTERESTED IN?
You will not earn money from your blog, if you do not really understand your readers.
To write what really matters to your readers, you need to understand them well and here are two ways you can understand them:
If you are a blogger and write about the subject of making money online, listen to what your readers respond to you via email, comment on posts and use it to build content ideas. You can also join groups, forums to see what they are discussing.
If you are building an email list, set up an email thread automatically and connect with them through your story and do not forget to ask questions.
Individuals of Cuong sometimes ask questions such as "What is the most difficult thing to make money online?" "What makes you not write blogs and make money from it? ... and usually after emails like Cuong received a lot of feedback and this is the way to develop Cuong content of the article targeted to the issue of readers.
Some of the responses that Cuong received the most were:
