Why This Website Is Not Making Money Now
There are 1000’s of websites about making money online. But only a thimble full make more then a few dollars a day. The rest make pennies and dimes – this website is one of them.
There is a good reason why there are hoards of websites about making money. People learn about making money online from make money online websites. Their eyes twirl as they read about how easy it is to make a website, how easy it is to make money, how great life is online.
Without taking a deep breath, without stepping back and thinking, they create a website. And what better topic then the one they are currently excited and passionate about – how to make money online. This is exactly what happened to me.
Monkeys learn how to use sticks by watching other monkeys use sticks. I like bananas. I discovered making money online from a make money online website. So what did I do after I finished my banana? I made a website about making money online.
2 years later and I have not made enough money to buy a year pass at the zoo. This website has netted a profit of $98.
It is absurd – after 2 years of attempting and failing, I am still at it.
Why do I continue this charade of teaching people how to be like me. Who would want to be like me? Who would want to follow in my footsteps? After visiting this website why would anybody want to listen to what I say or buy what I sell. This website is a sham – it attempts to teach what it does not know.
How successful can a math teacher be if they can’t factor a quadratic? Can an obese man sell a diet program? How successful can a website about making money be if it is not making any money?
I should admit it. I made a mistake. I got excited and jumped without looking. Make a website about making money without making a money with a website – absolutely ridiculous.
I must of fallen off the tree and hit my head. Why do I persist dolling out information about a topic I obviously know nothing about? What motivates me to continue?
Stubbornness. I know I am not making any money. I know that people should ignore me. I know that the whole concept is absurd.
But I keep going.
I cannot quit now. I have put in too much work and I have learnt too much. There is no way I am going to throw it all away. Stubbornness makes this website possible.
How This Website Will Make Money Later
On my wall, tacked beside the monitor is a piece of paper which reminds me in big letters:
- Don’t rush
- Real people are reading what you are writing
- Become an expert
This website does not make any money now. Obviously. It is not plastered with advertisements. And I am not pushing products. How could it make money.
I am not trying to make money now. I am creating a website that will make money in the future. Right now the focus is content. There is no way for a website to start making money out of the gate. First you need to build something, and then you can start making money. Now I am building.
Once it is built the focus will shift to making money.
First build the store, stock it with goods, attract customers, and then and only then make sales. Right now I am writing content and attracting customers. Making sales is the last step, the one that I have not started yet.
When this website finally does start making money the true value of this website will be revealed. It will show how you cannot make money without content. It will show the process that one must go through to make money. It will show the hard times, the long struggle, the uphill climb, the truth.
People will ask. How do websites make money? This website will be ready and waiting with the answer years in the making. This is when dimes will turn to dollars.
If you are reading this blog you are probably not making too much money either. You want to know how. The answer: Be stubborn and keep building – the money comes later.
