What is not possible in Blogger

The bare truth: Why you can't make money blogging

You set up a blog.

In 2 hours you write 8 articles with an average of 358 words each. These articles don't really add value.

No matter.

Then you do a bit of "search engine optimization" and trick the search engine. “Trapping is the right thing to do. That's how you do it today “you know.

Finally, put a few AdSense banners on your blog and wait. You wait ... and wait.

And at the end of the month you made a whole 10 €.


I bet you you know the feeling I know it too.

I didn't have a blog, but I did have a portal. This portal offered little added value, but still attracted over 10,000 visitors a month via Google. And what do you think, how much did this site earn per month?

Whole € 10. Really wow.

Advertising banners? Never again.

Because …

Advertising banners do not work

OK. That may not be entirely true. If your blog is called Huffington Post, Mashable, or Perez Hilton, then banner ads will work.

But if not, then you have a real problem.

Because these blogs have tons of traffic. But you can get tons of traffic really heavy. You know that

If you are trying to monetize your blog with the help of advertising banners, then you have the completely wrong mindset. Then you are giving away valuable potential.

The problem is, you make the world with banners Not to a better place. You're not trying to do anything give. Go ahead to take.

You're a thief. You steal Attention. And actually something like that should be punished.

Smart bloggers also make the attention their own, but they only do it because there is no other way these days. In return, however, they deliver a lot of added value.

You don't do that with banners.

You have to understand your blog no Advertising platform is. It is one influenceplatform.

But let's look at another problem.

“Earning money with blogs” is not a business model

If your business model is "make money with blogs" or "make money on the internet" ... then good luck!

Because the internet doesn't care about your desire to make money on the internet. He doesn't really care about you.

But why is that not a business model?

Because blogging is a tool. It's a tool. Tools are not a business model in themselves.

You can't make money with a hammer directly either. I don't get a hammer and say:

My business model is to make money with this hammer.

That doesn't make any sense.

Then I look at this hammer. Hammer around with it at home ... and wonder why I still haven't made any money with it. Yes, why only ?!

And that's exactly how it is with your blog.

You only earn with a hammer (or with a blog) if you go to people and do something for her do. Like building a porch, for example.

And it doesn't matter whether we're talking about a carpentry business or a blog business. Business is hard.

While it's not impossible to build a solid blog business for yourself. But it's tough. That's why it's called job.

So don't expect bad articles and maybe a little SEO banter to build a real online business. That is far from reality.

Even with my youthful recklessness, I approached the matter far too naively. I've got it too much easier presented.

But that's okay. Because if not, everyone would have a decent blog business. Then where would the fun be? Where would the challenge be?

But there is a third problem.

Smart blogging is not just about entertainment

Because blogging is a tool (and not a business model), you can use it however you want.

Do you want to use it as a diary? Go for it! Do you just want to entertain and get loads of attention with it? Go for it!

But then you are wrong here in the monkey blog. Sorry

Because smart blogs don't have much to offer duller Attention together. Also, check out many smaller attention grabbing blogs. So really they don't generate a lot of sales.

But what is the solution to all the problems?

Solve problems from real people

Because if you are serious about making money from your blog, then you have to be in the real world, solving real problems from a real audience.

Create smart blogs the reader in focus. Companies have been doing this for hundreds of years. Because there is a fundamental wisdom:

If you don't offer your customer something that solves some type of problem, then you won't be making any money.

But this fundamental wisdom just doesn't seem to apply on the internet. I think that's because the internet was pretty magical when it started out. But this is far before our time.

Today, online and offline are hardly any different.

And the affenblog is so popular right now because all of my content solves the problems of a target group. That is always the basis.

And that's exactly what you need to carry out this important mindshift: Think like an entrepreneur. Not like a blogger.


If you now think you can write a few inferior articles, trick the search engine a bit, slap your blog with advertising banners and get really rich with it, then all I can say is: puff cake.

Instead of writing low-quality articles and clapping banners on your blog, focus on high-quality articles that solve a target audience's problem.

And if that's the case, then you can do smart affiliate marketing or offer your own products that (how else should it be) solve a bigger problem for your target group.

Not only will that be more lucrative for you, but it will also make you a better person and the world a better place - the goal of one everyone Company.

Win-win for everyone.
