The 3 Reasons Why You Are Not Making Money Online

Why am I not making money online? You’re posting regularly and getting traffic yet nothing.

When I started my first blog I was really focused on driving traffic and I discovered (through trial and error) what works and what doesn’t.

I was able to rank in google and drive huge amounts of traffic to my site.

But guess what didn’t happen?

I didn’t make any money. I wasted time and effort I thought.

But after more trial and error I discovered why I wasn’t making and more. And I’m going to share my mistakes, so you don’t have to make them.

So here are my 3 main reasons why you are probably not making any money online.

1 Not Having Your Own Product Or Service

Hosting Ads and affiliate marketing is great. But as it is becoming increasingly hard to drive traffic, relying on ads is just not enough to make a living.

And the problem with affiliate marketing is that you are only ever making a commission. You never get the whole profit.

Now imagine creating your own product, it could be a digital or physical product and after you have done this it will generates an income for your passively.

Again and again AND you keep 100% of the profit!

You don’t even have to make the product yourself. The are hundreds or even thousands of private labeling products you can use.

Just perform a google search of your ‘niche + plr products’ and you are presented with an abundance of offers.

Simply research the product and make sure its a quality product before buying and offering to your audience on your site.

Once you’ve set this up you can relax and watch your income being generated.

This brings us to reason no 2.

2 You Don’t Have A Sales Funnel

You wouldnt start a business without a plan and making a sale is no different. Thats why you need a sales funnel.

Think of a sales funnel like a strategy in chess of a play in basketball or football.

It lines out the next logical steps in your customers journey and builds trust.

A really good example is uber, if you remember they offered the first ride for free.

There are numerous different sales funnels simple and complex.

3 Targeting The Wrong Audience

So let’s say you are getting great traffic, you have your own product and sales funnel set up but you are still not making any money?

You are targeting the wrong audience.

If for example your are selling products and services related to the health and fitness niche and are driving traffic through healthy eating recipes it might be that you audience is just interested in free recipes.

Instead try to targeted ‘weight loss’ or ‘recipes to gain muscles’.

Make your that you are targeting a profitable niche with a profitable audience.
