Road Blocks While Making Money Online

If you are a person who has been trying to make money blogging, then be sure to face a few obstacles on the way. A blog needs to over come a few road blogs before it becomes a money-making machine (I am sure the expression sounds desirable). Here is a list of road blocks that are faced while making money online.

Poor Traffic: To make any amount of money your fundamental requirement is traffic. Advertisements and affiliates only perform when there is an ample amount of traffic. If your site has a very poor everyday traffic then advertisers will not be ready to advertise since ads will not get much exposure. On the other hand, affiliate marketing is very traffic intensive. If you want to see good results in affiliate sales then traffic is important.

Wrong Niche: This is a big road block while trying to make money online from blogging. There are many blogs that get a huge amount of traffic but are unable to monetize it in any way because of a weak niche. On the other hand, blogs with lesser traffic are earning much more than those high-traffic sites because their niche is much more powerful. Generally, niche related to technology and health perform very well while earning money online.

Unprofessional/Irregular: If your blog is supposed to make money, then advertisers need to be sure that they are dealing with some one serious about his site. This means that your blog should give a very professional feel and should be updated regularly. Most blogs that are unprofessional and are updated once in a blue moon will rarely be able to make money.

These are a few road blocks that even experienced  bloggers have been facing whenever they want to monetize their blog. Hope you found this post useful and can work on tackling these road blocks.

I would really appreciate comments below.

How to Become a Blogtrepreneur?

A blogtrepreneur is basically someone who makes an entrepreneurial venture out of blogs. There are many ways that you can become a blogtrepreneur. Each type of blogtrepreneur has a specific way of functioning.This post is an intensive dig at blogtrepreneurs.

Who is a Blogtrepreneur?

A blogtrepreneur is someone who makes money online by venturing into serial blogging. He earns accumulative revenue by maintaining more than one blog. Usually, by hiring freelance writers.

There are two broad types of blogtrepreneurs:

Blogtrepreneur-1: The first type are the rich guys with a lot of moolah. They start off by hiring a writer and pay per article. This type of blogtrepreneur generally only concerns himself with link building, SEO etc. whereas the content is taken care-off by professional/freelance writers. In a year or so if he worked hard and created a lot of content, then his blog will become a money-generating machine.Then, he can move on to his next blog venture. There also many blogtrepreneur’s who will start 2-3 blogs (of different niches) at the same time by hiring content writers.

Blogtrepreneur-2: The second type of blogtrepreneur does not spend on content writers initially. They begin writing a blog themselves until it begins to generate revenue, then they hire writers. Then based on the profit they get, the budget to pay to content writers is decided. Further, the first blog is continued by the hired writers, whereas the blogtrepreneur jumps to start his next blog.

How to Become a Blogtrepreneur?

Like you may have understood from the two broad classification of blogtrepreneurs you can either start by setting up a blog and spending on writers. Provided your content writers are good and you have done your share of building relationships and SEO – you will be earning money in no time.

On the other hand, if you have no money to spend on writers then you will have to write yourself and do the promotion as well. This may cause your blog’s growth to slow down but, it will pay off for sure if you are consistent.

My opinion

Not sure how much this matters but, in my opinion becoming a blogtrepreneur is much easy if you have one master blog that generates a handsome amount of revenue. Then you can invest the revenue into creating more money making blogs.

Now for the important part, What’s your take on this?

Why is Online Business Best for Entrepreneurs?

If you are a serial entrepreneur then investing on a business online may be a great option for you. These days there are so many costs that need to be met while initiating a business that it is important you have enough capital to absorb the initial shocks of failure. In the same breath, an online business allows you a great deal of advantages over a conventional business that you may intend to start. This post will give you a deeper perspective on why an online business is such a great option for entrepreneurs.

Very Less Market Entry Costs

The amount of money that you invest initially in an online business is quite less compared to conventional entry costs. You may need to pay for your domain, your web hosts and a website design (if you want it customized). If you want to get started with a blog, then Blogger allows you to do so for free. Blogger is also a great way to learn all the basic of blogging.

Control Your Advertising Expenditure

When you start a business online there are a lot of ways in which you can promote your website or product on the internet. Most of the best options available are free – of course you can also pay to get your site/product promoted – that is your choice. But as such you can easily promote your business online by commenting on other blogs, using signatures in emails and posting on popular forums related to your business.

Multiple Revenue Streams

The website you run online need not make money only by providing your services. On the internet there are a lot of ways you can earn money. So your business can diversify its sources of income. One can sign up as an affiliate at a company like Clickbank, NeverBlue and promote products for handsome commissions. AdSense is another obvious way.

Globalized Approach to Business

The business you run online is not restricted to your locality or city. When you start a business online, you are catering to the world. The services you provide can be used by people all around the globe. One cannot even imagine reaching worldwide if you plan on starting a conventional business as the costs associated would be shocking!

The world is coming online, there are already 75 million Twitter users. Celebs are online, kids are browsing online, teens are looking to make quick money online – it would indeed be a smart choice to start your business online to capitalize on this whole new rage of Web 2.0.
