Why 95% Of Websites and Blogs Fail
My name is Anthony Aires.
And I’ve been blogging since 2008 that’s when I launched my very first blog.
At the time blogging was just starting to hit mainstream.
It was all new to me because before then I just knew how to launch basic websites that I was able to get on the first page of the search engines for my targeted keywords.
That first blog was quite an adventure and learning experience.
There were ups and downs like starting any other business.
Luckily I made it through the gauntlet and am here today getting to tell you about how you can succeed with blogging.
I’m fortunate enough that I don’t have a quitter mindset and I keep dusting myself off after failed attempts until I prevail.
Today blogging is one of our main income generators bringing in a healthy 6 figure a year income working just 90 minutes a day from anywhere on my laptop.
Now I’m not saying you’re going to make as much money as me…you might make zero or you might make more.
There are folks that I have told about blogging that learned some strategies I taught them and they’ve gone on to make more than I do.
And there are other folks who have done nothing with what I have taught them.
I just want to be 100% transparent with you that this is NOT a GET RICH QUICK scheme.
In the beginning of getting your blog off the ground you’re going to have to roll up your sleeves and put in the work.
Once you do you’ll get a grasp … you’ll see the matrix things will get easier.
Your knowledge will compound and so will the results you get with your blog.
So, you want to start a blog?
That’s why you’re here right?
And why not?
Everyone’s talking about doing it, and you hear stories of the stay-at-home mom launching a recipe blog that’s making five-figures every month like clockwork – and the best part is that she can do it from anywhere she can carry her laptop.
Or, how about the guy who quit his job because his car blog started to make more than his 9 to 5, and he doesn’t have to deal with the 40 minute commute each way to and from work?
But before you start a blog you should know that the New York Times re-published a study from Technorati, which runs a search engine for blogs, stated that “only 7.4 million out of 133 million blogs had been updated with content in the past 120 days.”
That translates to 95% of all blogs treading their way to the internet graveyard.
And those are not just blogs that are dying – they are dreams that are dying with them.
Which is kind of a bummer if you think about it like that. Wouldn’t you agree?
DON’T GET DISCOURAGED!
I’m one of the few that have run and sold a few successful blogs, and I’ve been doing it for over 9 years. I figured I’d at least give you some reasons why this happens, and how you can avoid having your blog sent to the internet graveyard.
First, you should want to make blogging work for you.
Because blogging is an awesome, proven way to make some extra income from anywhere you can carry a laptop, working only part time every day.
In fact I personally have mastered a system that generates six-figures a year from my blog, working only 90 minutes a day so I know what the heck I’m talking about.
Here’s the 1st reason blogger’s fail.
They run out of ideas to blog about.
And the reason that happens is because they don’t pick a big enough niche to blog about.
See, the most important thing is that you never run out of content to blog about.
Because the more content you add to your blog, the more chances you have of getting visitors to come to your blog – and that’s when the magic happens.
When you have a lot of content to write about, you get visitors.
So, the question arises, what niche should you pick?
That’s an entire training on it’s own merit since it’s a very involved process.
This is probably the most important step that most folks rush through when they shouldn’t.
If you get this part right you can do almost everything else not so great and you’ll still have a blog that succeeds.
I actually teach this in-depth inside of our Blog and Prosper Academy.
And I show you how to know if your ideal passion niche blog will be profitable before you even launch your very own.
The 2nd reason blogger’s fail.
They don’t have a deployment plan for their blogs.
See, the way my system works is simple: I’ve devised a deployment plan that only takes me 90 minutes per day.
And blogging is like the turtle and the rabbit story: consistency and steadiness wins the race.
When you get it right with blogging you’ll actually make more while working the same, after you’ve gotten your blog off the ground.
That’s because blogging has a built-in passive income compounding traffic leverage effect that multiplies with the more posts you create for your blog.
The great thing about blogging, is that over time your traffic and income become passive.
But, people are trying to have the six-figure-success happen tomorrow.
Frankly, that’s just not going to happen.
Take it from me; I’ve been doing this for 9 years and I know all the shortcuts you can take.
And I show them to you inside of my Blog and Prosper Academy.
The 3rd Reason Bloggers Fail
They set their blogs up on a free blogging platform.
The challenge is that these platforms are usually very limited in performance-features.
Blogging becomes way easier when you host your own blogging platform.
You’re also limited on how you can make money when you have a blog on free blogging platforms.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t want anyone limiting how I make money – especially online, where you have no limits J
The scary part about it is that at any moment they can change their terms of service and start charging you, or decide to shut down because they can’t stay in business simply because they’re not charging anything.
You want to be in control of your blog platform.
It’s your hard-earned work.
You gain control of your blog platform when you host it with a hosting service that is secure, fast, and reliable, has backups, is hacker-free, and can help you get un-hacked if you somehow do.
If you want to setup your blogging platform on the same hosting service I use (which you should, since I’ve been doing this for 9 years and I’m an internet marketer that generates 6-figures from blogging, alone while running a 7 figure business.)
My Blog and Prosper Academy members get free hosting for a year (you can switch hosts anytime) plus we’ll set up your blog for you with 20 different advanced mobile responsive design themes, and the best plugins for an optimized finely tuned up blogging platform (the same way I set it all up)
The 4th Reason Bloggers Fail.
They get tech-overwhelm.
Listen, when you’re getting started and are still new at this whole blogging thing, the technology can be daunting and overwhelming.
Especially if you’re doing the setup yourself.
There’s a lot to learn, like:
What is a plugin and which ones do I install?
Which theme should I use?
How do I optimize my posts for SEO?
How do I tag images?
And much more.
Our Blog and Prosper Academy members don’t have to worry about this since we handle all the tech setup and backup while keeping the hackers away.
You can be running your blog in no time flat, without breaking a tech sweat.
So you can just focus on the most important thing … content that creates passive income compound leverage.
The 5th Reason Bloggers Fail.
They don’t know how to get visitors to their blog.
If you build it, they will not come.
You actually have to build it – and then you have to work it J
You’ve got to get the word out when you first start your blog.
You have to get in front of your targeted audience.
There are many ways to do that.
And that’s the big problem: there are so many ways that people try to go about doing that, and they fail miserably at all of them.
See, the way you must do it is by picking one or two ways to bring in visitors and focus on them initially.
Once you master them and the visitors start coming in, you can use the visitors you’re getting to help spread the word even more.
And if they if they like what you have to say…they’ll share your blog posts on their social media.
Then, you can scale to two more traffic sources, and rinse and repeat. Use those new visitors to spread the word for you, and so on, and so forth.
I’ve got a bonus training session that I’ve created on how to get in front of any audience instantly – you’ll see an actual case study of people doing it, and they don’t have to pay for ads, either.
You can have this entire bonus training plus some of my products for free.
All you have to do is watch this training series I put together for you at no cost because I just need you to watch it and give me feedback, and for your feedback I’m going to hook you up with free giveaways 🙂
The reason I need your feedback is because I want to make my training’s better and I can’t do that without your help.
There’s no obligation access to the training series is free just click this link!
These are the main reasons people fail at blogging.
And now you know them – and knowing them is half the battle.
One more very very important detail…
Understand that your blog is your asset that you’ll keep on building.
The more you build it the more you’ll make.
It’s also the most sustainable business model online because blogs are content, and content is the internet, and all platforms from Google to Facebook to Twitter they need content.
Blogs feed content to those platforms J
Thanks for stopping by.
