4 stupid reasons your blog doesn’t make (enough) money ~ Esp #3

Blogging today has grown into a huge money making exercise. Out of every 10 blogs you read, 7 – 9 have some money making objects on it.

That doesn’t only tell you bloggers want to make money with their blogs. It also points to the fact that it’s possible to make money as a blogger.

While some bloggers are earning full time income from their blogs, others are barely struggling to earn cents. But the question is ‘Is it easy?’

Most of you reading my blog know I talk a lot on different ways to monetize your blog. Everything I write here about making money stems from personal experiences. I have tried a couple of things, some of them very stupid πŸ˜‰ but where it doesn’t work, I just keep it to myself.

I have read so many mails from readers who crave to generate income from their blogs. Some have established blogs yet don’t know where to begin. Some are freshmen who want to start making money as soon as possible.

The truth is everyone with a blog that’s read can make money. Here are 4Β main reasons why yours is not making (enough)Β money;

make enough money blogging

Why your blog is not making (enough) money!


1 – You don’t solve any problems!

This is the core of making money online. People spend where their problems are solved. That means if you don’t seek to solve any, you don’t get paid.

Your ability in solving people’s problems lies in you being able to identify the problems, those affected and then develop and provide Β a long lasting solution.

I know the next question is how do I use my blog to help people solve problem?

It’s pretty easy even if you don’t have any specific skills. However, if you have skills in something (video editing, article writing, web development, graphics designing, wight lost, pet training, automobile, gardening, relationships, health, cooking, etc) develop these skills and let your audience know you are an expert in them.

I bet people have problems in these different fields and they need solutions. Once you help them with solutions, you’ll get their money.

What if you don’t have any skills?

As a blogger, at least you have some writing skills. You can still help your readersΒ by telling them about some productsΒ that will help them solve problems.

If you are in the health niche for instance, help your audience cure Eczema, Yeast, Cough, Β etc by letting them discover the treatment. By reviewing a product like Yestrol for instance, you make money whenever someone buys through your blog. That’s what we call Affiliate Marketing.

2 – You don’t monetize at all!

This may sound really stupid but I have come across several cases of bloggers who don’t have an idea what to do to monetize their blogs.

A typical case is a reader (Identity closed) with an interesting food blog with lots of exciting posts on different areas of cooking. He’s also got a large community of readers. Β (People love food πŸ˜‰ ). Despite being so knowledgeable, having a highly read blog with an active community, he was well unable to generate income from that blog.

Now, it’s very easy for him to start seeing results by beginning to put to use the money making capacity of his blog.

He writes a lot on different recipes so creating his own product or promoting some kitchen utensils on Amazon could just be a very targeted approach.

monetize my blog

If you want to sell space on your blog, create an advertise here page (or something similar). You’ll have to let your readers know they can buy space on your blog.

Give out enough materials to help them come to that conclusion to buy your space. Advertisers have certain things they look for on your blog so makeΒ sureΒ these things available to them.

Download my free report that shows you exactly what advertisers want. This will help you make more money by selling space on your blog.

3 – You monetize wrongly!

This is one of the must stupid reasons most of us bloggers don’t make enough money from our blogs. We do the wrong things and expect good results.

Now, simply because a friend is making money with Google Adsense does not mean that will work for me. The truth is Adsense does not work well in some niches.

The first thing you have to do is know your audience. By posting contents on different topics, you should be able to know which topic generates more activities and where your readers are likely to spend.

I have come across bloggers who did some Affiliate product reviews on their blogs and I was asking myself how did they come about this. That an affiliate product pays high commission and a certain blog is generating sales from it does not mean it can do well on your blog.

Some of us just paste banners here and there and pray to make sales. Wrong!

NB: I recommend you check out this post where I reveal something quite hot about banners.

Before you advertise any products (by doing reviews or banners), be sure it can help solve your readers’ problems.

Some products have very poor affiliate programs. They either have poor affiliate software or very unfriendly policies. You have to take all of this into account before you start wasting your time and space on your blog.

4 – You don’t have traffic!

Traffic plays an important part in online business. If there are no readers coming to your blog from search engines, social media, emails and other referral channels, be very sure you are never going to make a cent.

The more your traffic, the bigger your marketplace. Note however that it’s not just about any traffic. If you pull un-targeted visitors, it will end up wasting your bandwidth, generating no income.

You have to focus on attracting people that will find value in what you share. For the most part, the more traffic you get from search engines, the better your chances to monetize your blog and generating exciting income.

While traffic is crucial in making money with your blog, it’s won’t still make any sense if the other 3 factor discussed above are not well in place.

NB: I have written an article I recommend you check out as it fully complements this post. Check out this article to knowΒ more reasons why you may be wrong focusing on traffic.

traffic

You discover here that all of this are working together to build a reasonable source of income.

I know there maybe other reasons you are not able to generate income with your blog but if you focus on these 4 to develop them, you are certainly going to witness an improvement.

So let’s discuss!

What other reasons do you think bloggers are unable to monetize their blogs? Let me hear from you in the comment box and please, help share this post on social media.

  1. The main problem is traffic.. How to get traffic other than search engine.. Please tell me.. Is there any cheap paid traffic source?

    This is a nice post and true about reasons of not making money from our blog.
    I will correct the mistakes and wish to get a good income from my blog .

    Thanks for share

  2. Traffic, for me is the most important. No matter how valuable the articles on your site are, if no one is reading them it’s useless and pointless.

    Also I think a lack of focus can be another reason. A lot of bloggers go into blogging not really knowing what they want to blog about. So today they blog about eggs tomorrow they blog about Pluto. This can confuse search engines and visitors hence attracting wrong traffic that does not convert.
    GREAT article s usual Enstine. You do inspire me daily. πŸ™‚

  3. Hello Sir,
    Awesome work sir you describe most impotent factor why some blog does not make enough money by there blog. I like your #2 factor – you are right some bloggers doesn’t know how to monetize there blog and how to convert traffic to customers.

    So i think all who doesn’t make money from their, they all are now get earn money after reading you post and i also implement and note all factors.

    Thanks for sharing sir πŸ™‚

  4. I think another major reason why people don’t make money on their blogs is that they get disheartened. They start off strong and start getting a few visitors but soon after they start to lose interest as the blog is not making money. But if they stick it out a little longer, they may have actually made some money.

  5. Does anyone’s blog make enough money?!?! I know that I could always use more. But seriously, thanks for the info, there are actually a couple of points there that I will be implementing.

  6. This is a nice post and true about reasons of not making money from our blog.
    I will correct the mistakes and wish to get a good income from my blog .

    Thanks for sharing this post.

  7. Glad to get here. It’s been a year of blogging I could not earn much just a couple of dolloars and an adsense account. That’s really not what i want. But i got to know where i was lacking thanks to this post @muki your blog is really helpful.

    have a great time πŸ™‚

  8. Hi Enstine,

    Thanks for sharing these valuable points. For me, these points clear the basic thing to earn online. These points covers all the main part by which many of the bloggers earn online.

    Thanks again for sharing πŸ™‚

  9. Hi Muki,

    You have comprised a great list of why a blog can not make money. First point is very important among all. If a blog does not solve any problem, it can make any money thats for sure.

    Also traffic is also a great factor in money making.

  10. I think that most people just start a blog about what they like and have no idea what the competition is like with other blogs. They have the “if I build it, they will come” mentality. I think that we need to do lots of research into competition before we start a blog and as you say, we need to be solving someones issues!

    • Hey Shannon,
      Good to see you here and thanks for the comment.
      You know the reason is that in those early days, there is often no guide so most starters just move on on their own. That’s a mistake if you ask me πŸ˜‰

  13. I totally agree with you Estine, solving people’s problem is no1 way you can make money online and later wait for the affiliates sales to put money into your pocket.

  14. Hello Enstine,
    Your writing shows you have the success of other bloggers at heart. This has been the most difficult aspect of blogging. I will continue to put all the points in practice.

  17. hi…
    i have a site name onlinemoneycafe.blogspotcom and i am apply for adsense but they reject my request is their any alternative way to get adsense…

  18. Excellent Post.
    This four points explains why most blogger are didn’t make money from blog.
    Every blogger should focus on this 4 steps.

    As you say, google adsense sometime not work for some niche. (absolutely correct)

    Here I add an example, if any blog based on blogging niche and it showed Google adsense ads on that blog regularly. But I don’t think that blog get higher CTR. Because most of that blog visitors are may be another blog owner, so they know how Google adsnese work.

    All other 3 tips are also important as this one.
    Thanks for sharing this post with us. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    • Hi Md,
      Your example is correct.
      CTR and even CPC on most blogs in the blogging niche are quite down. That’s why trying another money making model can produce better results

      Thanks for taking time to respond to this post man πŸ˜‰

  19. Hello Enstine sir,

    You’ve presented an eye-opening for the bloggers who are not making money with their blog. I do agree with your 4 reasons for not making any dough from blog.

    Targeting the audience and offering solution for their needs are the keys to earn with blog. Publishing the posts just to fill the sake of blog never aid to make income in blogging.

    Thanks for crafting this good post for us.

  20. Hi Muki bro,
    Firstly, let me say Happy Val! Just like you said, making the wrong decision while monetizing bloggers effort online is just disheartening, yet most blogger won;t just listen when there is an epic advice from expert who knows much about making money online. The truth is being revealed here that while my friend is making money form Adsense I might not make a cent, in fact I have a guru who make more than I made from AdSense per month from affiliate and his not monetizing his effort with AdSense (Banned though). Seeing from where others got stocked is the way forward in blog-o-sphere. Thanks for your effort to reveal this powerful pack bro.

    • Hahaha! dat day donc pass ooo sha πŸ˜‰
      anyway how you enjoyam?

      Oyibo no worry. Na we small pidgin for this comment.

      Hahaha! so how the money making matter? I see you di do good bro. Keapam fine ohhh

      By the way na how far? whetin day ya man?

  21. Most bloggers are just bloggers they are not marketers. This is perhaps the one reason most blogs don’t make money.

    If you want to make money from blogs, make sure to consider it as a business instead of fun. And I agree with your points Enstine.

  22. Hi Enstine!

    Turns out your site wasn’t set up correctly in my Feedly. Here I was thinking you weren’t posting when it turns out I just had things set up incorrectly… whoops!

    You’ve wrote a solid list here for sure. My case early on was monetizing incorrectly. I still see people making this mistake constantly and it’s a real shame because people make their work a lot harder when really they have to just change their strategy.

    In every niche I work in, most of my money is made promoting products or services (either my own or as an affiliate) to my email subscribers. This is the case for many others as well as quite simply it works extremely well. Autoresponders essentially allow relationship building and promoting on autopilot and is the only reason I can consider my income consistent.

    I’m not a real fan of basing a business around Adsense because you’re essentially getting paid for people LEAVING your site, and that doesn’t really appeal to me. I recently removed Adsense on most of my sites, but kept it on my main blog because the CPC is quite high.

    Those are just my opinions of course and won’t apply to all niches.

    Thanks Enstine!
    – James

    • Oh yeah I’m glad you have things now fully set up πŸ˜‰ and thanks for taking time to share your view with us here.

      When I just started blogging, I read the main reason why John Chow discourages bloggers with low traffic to monetize with adsense. He reason is just that for the most part, it steals your traffic for peanuts.

      John goes to hammer on list building as the most profitable step in creating a steady marketplace to sell any targeted product.

      While I perfectly agree with John, I see you too are in the same pot of soup. Google, Facebook, Twitter and change their terms and through you off but your list will always remain in place.

      Thanks for the wonderful contribution bro.

      Better days are ahead

  23. Hi Enstine

    Very important post and focus the four core issues of not make money blogging.

    As you said monetizing a blog properly is the most crucial way to earn money with it.

    Otherwise it may be a display shop with lot of things being displayed prominently but no one is buying them.

    Relevant traffic is also must to sell the products that they want. If someone is thirsty we can never sell him Pizza.

    Thanks a lot for sharing this very thoughtful post.

    • Hey Mi,
      Thanks for making a confirmatory comment.
      You can have all the traffic but if you don’t do it rightly, you’ll still end up not having a cent.

      I love your linked article so I’ll be going to check that out right after these comments

      Do have a wonderful week ahead man

  24. Hi Enstine sir,
    Making money online is the main moto for most of blogger. Or you can say they blogs for money. But making money from blog is not an easy task.
    This is a wonderful post with the reasons for what blogger failed to earn money.
    Thanks for this post.

  25. I agree with all the points you have made here!

    Because, the same story has already happened to me. Still I’m not making enough money from my blog!

    Thanks for the article!

    Please write about- valuable content creation methods…

  26. Hey Enstine,

    I like that you were straight forward with this. Most of us go through this as bloggers where we’re just starting out or we’re just hard headed and been blogging for a while.

    But the one that I would say is the biggest reason is that they’re post isn’t solving any problems. You can talk about how much money you can make problem with this and that program or product, but if you’re not talking about the benefits of them and how it can solve your audience’s problem, then it would be just a waste of time blogging about them.

    One thing I like to add going off of the traffic tip is that there are a lot of bloggers that aren’t networking with the right people. It took me a while to find the great bloggers that I know now, but networking with people who are serious and passionate about blogging is vital. They’re going to be the main ones who are going to help you promote your blog posts outside the resources that you may use. In this case, Social Proof goes a long way!

    Thanks for sharing Enstine! Have a good one!

    • Hey Sherman,
      that point you added is huge. I remember when I started broaded. Lots of my friends posted about it and I remember the first client who spent over $200 on the platform came from a post on a friend’s blog. I saw his comment on that blog and the next thing was, he signed up and made a purchase.

      When Adrienne Smith launched her product, her friend were making a lot of noise about it and that generated sales for her.

      Networking with the right people is a key point man and thanks for sharing it.

      Hope you are set for a wonderful week

  27. Hi Enstine,

    Great post. I don’t think I could add anything to this that you haven’t already said, other than I believe too many people try to monetize their blog too soon before they have a following or before trying to solve problems that people have.

    But that is why people like you are giving this great information in your blog. You’ve been there, done that and if people will take heed to your advice, they will save themselves a lot of heartache.

    • Aha! Thanks for this beautiful comment my dear friend!
      It’s always good to see you here and thanks for the job over there at PAC

      It’s another and I’m sure you are set to face it πŸ˜‰

  28. Hi Enstine

    Nice article, great ideas and thought provoking post. Man! you are always solving people’s problems.

    You are right and you listed valid reasons why blogs don’t make money. If these points are considered and acted upon; they are sure to make a blog generate income.

    Thanks for sharing

    • Hey Ikechi,
      Thanks for the feedback man and I see you coming up like fire. While you are solving the traffic problem for yourself, solve problems for others and they will pay you.

      Get set for a marvelous week ahead bro

  29. Hi Enstine,

    You stated 4 important facts that I do agree, and to get these done, one need to write content that not only solves problems, but also adds value so that the reader would love to read more and more.
    As you mentioned; some affiliate programs are not fair for bloggers, take Amazon for example, as a beauty bloggers, I only make few cents from each sale.
    One thing that keep making me angry is that “some” bloggers asks for low rates for reviews, I mean very low rates, $10-$20 for a review! And that makes it hard for the rest of bloggers, so either lower my rates, or just set and watch others making money, that’s ridiculous but true! So would there be a way , in the future, to set standard rates, I hope so!

    • Hi Dima,
      You have raised an important point that has to be addressed by bloggers. While some products pay mercilessly small, they require you make mass sales to realize something substantial and without traffic, you end up making cents.

      The point you raised is that of getting low level payment for product reviews. The truth is some product owners don’t know why they pay for reviews. That’s why they easily get faked by these low end bloggers.

      I have rejected so many of this ‘bad proposals’ because I don’t think it’s fair. I’d rather do it free than to be cheated.

      I think I’ll write some more about this and share what I think is right?

      Thanks for the beautiful point raised

      • Thank you, Enstine!
        I would love to hear your point of view about that.
        I wish there is a way to set some rules, I don’t know, there should be a way. Maybe a website for reviewing products with a minimum payout that is reasonable to the product value.
        I am a member of Tomoson community, but as we bid for reviewing products, companies always pick those of lower bids, thinking that they will get good work, but that is not always true.

  30. Hello,

    Your every post is valuable for me. I have found and learn many tricks from your blog and hope you always give hot tips for us every time.

    Thanks for this post.

    • Hi Jasmeet,
      Thanks for being a faithful reader and for sharing your opinion.
      I’ll surely be sharing more and more hot tips πŸ˜‰

      Keep reading and do have a wonderful week ahead

  31. Hi Enstine!
    I really love the way how you explain this kind of semi-tutorial post. I believe that the most effective way to earn online was to solve your readers problem, in this way they can trust you more and the product you are promoting.

  32. It definitely always boils down to traffic for me. With enough traffic, youll get offers left and right and youll be forced to learn about ways on how to make money with it.

    Always great to read your stuff Enstine. Enjoy the weekend my friend.

    • Hey Dennis,
      first, you write terrific content on your blog. I read every of those posts and can highly recommend your blog.

      Thanks for your feedback here and I’m glad to know how you always feel reading my stuff.

      Do have a wonderful week ahead

  33. Hi Enstine, Thank you so much for this information, it’s accurately written and we’ll laid out. My problem is actually traffic, I have been finding it so hard to generate a substantial traffic for my blog that has been around for like 10 months. Been working on different traffic generation method, though result has been encouraging but still falls short of my expectations

    • Hi Santa, I’m impressed and excited to hear that your results are encouraging. Yes, you can make it better by doing more of what you already do. Double your effort and of course you’ll see (almost) double results.

      Thanks for sharing that experience

  34. Hi Enstine,

    That’s a lot of food for thought for people like me. πŸ™‚

    I try out many things and strategies and hope to hold on to something that works well. I guess a blogger should keep on trying ways to make money, but should formulate a strategy and work out according to the plan.

    As you pointed out, having an established blog is not sufficient, but what makes a difference is how you go about and what things you do, and in what way. Problem solution is a big point, and rest of the points are equally helpful too.

    Thanks for this post, and have a great weekend ahead! Happy Valentine’s Day as well πŸ™‚

    • Hi friend,
      Good to see you here despite the very busy schedule. Now, you understand why John Chow, Pat, Zac, Neil and a host of others hard go commenting on as many blog as they would. Pros are busy cooking for their followers ain’t they?

      And each time you make out 30+ minutes to read and comment, I feel excited

      Thanks for your time and of course, I do agree with your point. We have to figure out what works for us and rinse and repeat for growth.

      The weekend has been busy for me and I’m moving forward.

      My regards to your community and Vinay, the great man for you πŸ˜‰

  35. Hi Enstine, great, useful and wonderful comment here, you mentioned important roles and things to be carried out.
    I can only point to traffic as my own issue as I have received several mails requesting for advert but fortunately they usually complains for low traffic.
    Thanks for sharing.

    • Yes bro low traffic is often an issue but I tell you with 100 daily readers, you can still make good money. It may not be big but will be enough to encourage your blogging.

      Thanks for sharing your experience and I hope your traffic grows

      • Thanks Enstine with this statement you really added to my passion & encouragement to blogging am really greatful. Have been working on some tips I founded here on your blog and wishing myself success soon.

  36. Good Morning Enstine, Well your title just made me want to click on over and see what these 4 stupid reasons your blog doesn’t make money are!! LOL

    I do agree with all of your points here my friend and do have another one to add! How about just straight on focus? I to talk to a lot of people about blogging and I hear so many times I just don’t know what to do?

    Well this is easy, people need to start visiting blogs like yours and actually taking the time to read and learn how what they need to do on a daily basis to make money.. Yes I did say DAILY BASIS!

    I did talk about this is my blog post this week, Are you treating your business like a business or a hobby?

    I know all to well about this one.. LOL Thanks for sharing and do have a wonderful weekend ahead.. Chery :))

    • Wow! that’s an impressive addition to this post Chery. Looks like a feature comment if I were on disqus.

      If people treat business like a business or treat blogging like a real business, there is no reason it won’t generate money.

      Thanks for your great contribution dear friend. Do have a wonderful week ahead

  37. This came in Handy, I am making a few bucks with my blog after apply some of these, I want to improve my earnings, like make it come in reasonable Bulks every month, this is a topic I wish you can also discuss about here, I’ll appreciate it as I am thankful for this Post already. Thanks Enstine

    • Hey man,
      I’m working on an excellent post on how to increase your earnings even when your traffic is dropping. In it, I share some proven actions that must generate results.

      Stay tuned bro

      • Sure thing boss, I am tuned in, every time, πŸ™‚
        I had tried so hard to improve my readership, the Traffic goes up, but the Earnings remain the Same, so I Can’t wait for the post you’ll publish about solution to that.
        Thanks in Advance.

  38. i don’t had traffic.but i week ago, i received a call from a person who read my blog and wanted to by my partner.i agreed and now he sends more than 5000 visitors daily to my blog from facebook.in one week i earned more than 150$.according to my experience, if you are not receiving traffic from search engines, you should try for other sources of traffic.

    • Hey Hamza,
      Thanks for sharing your experience man
      So encouraging to read that you made that amount in 1 week. Just keep pouching on and you will a bigger figure πŸ˜‰

  39. Hello Muki,
    Saluting you for this mind blowing post. You just highlighted the main point of making no money via blog. I loved your first point which is about solving problems. From now I will try to publish posts that solve at least one problem.

    Thanks for the ideas. Hope to increase my earning via your ideas.

  40. Enstine ,

    Quite a thought provoking article.

    I remember my early days of blogging wherein everything started and ended with monetization or MONEY to be precise. Little did we know about the readership building and the importance of a community required before getting into all that.

    Knowing the ways of monetisation is also important I feel. Rather than sticking to one source like adsense without utilizing the other options like rent ad space, sponsored posts etc you lose out on a lot of money too.

    • Hey Menon,
      Thanks for the beautiful contribution, sharing your experience.

      To make money online, one definitely has to go through a learning process, building a community and providing content that keeps your readers.

      I hope you are set for a wonderful weekend dear friend

  41. Think you’ve said it all
    Like you know about me, I have 3 blogs on different niche, but one of them focusing basically on recent and latest vacancies making more dollars than other
    And no one can ignore traffic which is the most vital part of blogging success

    Thanks

  42. Hi Enstine,

    Nicely written as usual! πŸ˜‰
    You have shared nice tips here. I agree with all these four points especially the 3rd one, newbies should try hit and trial method instead of following other blogger. There are many ways one can monetize other than adsense, they should try the alternate monetization methods.

    Thanks for sharing Enstine.

  43. Hi Enstine,

    Great post as usual! πŸ˜‰
    It was nice to get money from a blog, but if we just focus on the money, our blogging spirit would easily go down when we do not get money as expected.

    Then, another reason why a blog does not make money is they do not focus on one field. Many bloggers who want to make money quickly and try everything they have just learned. It makes them like “jack of all trade but master of none”
    That’s my opinion though. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for sharing, Enstine.
    Nice share!

    • Hey man what’s up?

      You see the first point here is about solving a problem. If we really focus on solving problems, we will make the money. I think that’s the best way to make money.

      The best way to focus on money is to focus on people’s solutions. If we miss that point, we miss the money

      Thanks for your terrific contribution man. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend

  44. Hi Enstine,

    Once again great post,
    Initially I also faced similar myth of making money via Google Adsense, but it never worked well for me because I am on niche in which people get less clicks and CPC.
    So I thought of going with Affiliate and now I am making decent income with it.

    Thanks for sharing

  45. Hii Enstine,

    Outstanding article !

    You mentioned the most important factors of why a blog doesn’t make decent money. According to me, all these four reasons applies for all the bloggers. I think 4th reason “You don’t have traffic!” is quite much important.

    Thank you so much for sharing this great piece of your thought with us πŸ™‚

    • Hey Amit,
      How are you doing?

      I agree that more traffic gives you the biggest opportunity to make money. However, you can still have that traffic and not know how to go about it.

      That’s why other factors come in

      thanks for your contribution today man

      Do have a wonderful weekend

  46. Hi Bro,

    Good post. I agree with you. Unless you solve other people’s problem, they might not visit you again. But if you solve their problem, you will get a loyal reader.

    Remaining three points are interconnected ( according to me). Many people think it is wise to monetize their blog once their blog is famous. I think its not right. Even if you have low traffic, you need to monetize your blog. Write great content and market it efficiently. You will get traffic automatically.

    • I’m of your opinion Uma! You need to to have 1000s of readers before trying to monetize. As soon as your blog is being read, you can already sell your services

      Thanks for the comment man

  47. Nice article, this is an honest written article about why most people dont make money with their blog,you must understand your niche, you must choose your keyword rightly inorder for you to start making money online.

    • Hey Abayomi,
      Thanks for sharing your point
      Yes, understanding your niche is key in driving to success. If you fail to, you will completely miss your target.

      Happy weekend
