There are tons of people who start blogging, publish a few blog posts, and struggle to make decent money.
Many started internet marketing or email marketing, but sooner or later failed.
If you belong to any of the categories above (I assume you are, since you came to read this), I’ll try to answer your questions. I’m going to help you understand why you are not able to make money online.
Even after trying for a long time.
I’ll keep it as straight and clear as possible.
Here’s why you are not making money online:
- You are So Focused on Money
- You Aren’t Growing Your Skills.
- You Want To Get Rich Quick
- You Get Easily Influenced
You are So Focused on Money
People don’t make money because they want to.
People make money by solving other peoples’ problems.
You need to change your goal.
Your ultimate goal is to make money. Your entire method is revolving around passive income from the internet.
And you need to change that.
Your goal should be helping people, not getting paid for free. If you dream you’ll start a business sitting from your apartment that generates thousands of dollars online without helping people, and you sit back on an island enjoying your growing bank account, it’s not going to happen. Period.
Every business tends to solve a problem in some ways:
- You get hungry, you go to a restaurant: your hunger is a problem that a restaurant solves.
- You want to stay fit, you go to a gym: the gym solves your fitness problems.
- You need skills and knowledge to get a job: college solves your education problems.
- You need money to buy a house, you go to a bank: by giving you a loan when you need it, a bank solves your problem.
- You want to enjoy your holidays without any hassle, you seek a travel agent: The travel agents solve your trip and planning problems.
You got to understand that almost every kind of business is growing by solving problems.
That’s what you need to shift your focus on. From “only” money shift to problem-solving. Learn to help more people.
You Aren’t Growing Your Skills.
Your income can grow to the extent that you can.
If you are not learning every day, you are not growing. If you don’t learn continuously, you’ll get behind those who do. Reading every day helps you get new ideas, innovations and will help you become more confident.
To start helping people, you need to be good at something. Something you can define as your primary skillset.
For example, Your locality has multiple automobile mechanics, and they charge $150 per customer. If you can repair an automobile better than anyone in your region and do it at a lower price, that skillset is like $100 per customer.
The same formula applies to every other niche you might think of.
You need to be good at something before you can actually start helping people. And eventually, make money from it.
For the continuous growth of your skills, for a better way of your life, and to reconstruct everything that has been going wrong, you need to keep learning every day.
You can do many things, but you need to be really good at one particular thing.
And once you become good at something, charge a premium for doing it.
Remember what Joker from “the dark knight” said?:
“If you are good at something, never do it for free.”
Once you are competent at a task, you can make money out of it online or offline. But we in this article will stick to online platforms.
Remain curious to learn new things. Learn something new every day. You’ll feel the change in your thinking power in a few weeks.
You Want To Get Rich Quick
There’s a harsh truth in internet marketing:
Most people come online to get rich quick and retire early. Dreaming, they will make money on automation while sleeping.
In the race of making money quickly, they fall for scams. In search of some secret formula, some secret business model, they end up wasting their money.
There’s no course, no scheme, or a secret funnel that makes you rich overnight.
You need to be aware of this. No one gets rich quick. It takes years of hard work and a passionate mindset to grow a business online and offline.
Dedication and consistency are two vital pillars for building businesses, especially online.
Your success and your income are dependent on how much effort you are willing to put in. Patience is a way to success. If you are not patient enough, you’ll end up losing hope too soon.
You Get Easily Influenced
There’s a gazillion different online mentors, gurus, entrepreneurs that’ll say:
“Hey, click on this button. I’ll make you millions.”
“Click here. I’ll make you rich.”
“This formula will make you passive income for free.”
If you feel that joining their programs, watching their videos, and getting their books will make you rich, you are doomed already.
None of it works. Not that way.
You don’t make money because of any secret formula.
You don’t make money by watching rich people’s lifestyles.
You won’t make money by enrolling in a course that reveals a secret strategy.
Hard work, hustle, and determination make you rich.
Don’t get influenced by people who show off their cars and homes. They do this because that’s what grabs your attention. They know you get addicted to watching their lifestyle and buy their stuff because you dream and desire the life they live.
Don’t get influenced so easily. Your hard work and continuous hustle for learning, hunger for knowledge, and will to execute your ideas will take you where your goal is.
At the end of the day, it’s about how you think. It is about what your goal and ambition are.
The definite aim is to help more people and make money steadily on a recurring cycle so you can live a good life with it.
Work now, put your money and effort into something right now so you can live a happy life in the next 3 or 5 years. That’s way more practical than making millions in 6 months.
