You know what I’ve been seeing a lot of lately?
Their post usually say’s something along the lines of “Find Out How I Made $100,000,000,000,000 This Month Blogging.”
Okay, maybe I over dramatized the numbers a bit but you get my point.
So, you click on their ad and head over to their blog to check out their Income Report in hopes of possibly learning how you can make what they made, and you leave thinking you got some valuable information to implement their same strategies only to get minimum to NO results at all.
The insane part about Income Reports is that it’s total click bait.
(maybe that’s why bloggers post them but hey, what do I know?)
I think what happens is people see large numbers with a dollar sign in front of it and it pushes them to click. Almost like they can’t even control themselves.
What I want you guys to know is that you’re only getting a tiny view of an extremely large picture. Those bloggers who are bringing in massive ROI’s are leaving out major key points as to how they got from A to B.
For an example, the last Income Report I took the time to read, the blogger explained how she made a little over $600 her first month blogging. Then, towards the ending of the article she left a small comment stating that she had owned that blog for a year and decided to revamp it and start over fresh with a new brand.
So, that “first month blogging” wasn’t really her first month blogging.
Although, it was her first month publishing under her new brand, she had mentioned in the article that she already built up a good following and reputation the previous year.
But, her pin on Pinterest stated “Find Out How I Made Over $600 My First Month Blogging.”
Do you see the deception that’s going on here?! Don’t be fooled.
I will not post the bloggers name for her privacy but, I just want you guys to understand that as a new blogger/online entrepreneur, reading such articles can be unhealthy for the success of your brand.
It can very easily make you feel pressured or like you don’t have your stuff together when that’s totally not the case. Those online entrepreneur’s who are bringing in massive ROI’s started just where you are.
There’s no set amount of cash you should make your first month blogging, and if you’re focusing too much on the cash, you shouldn’t be blogging anyway.
I’m not saying this to be rude. I just hate to see talented people start something and then give up. Becoming an online entrepreneur is not as easy as it looks. You will most likely put in a lot of hard work before you actually start seeing a decent ROI so cash shouldn’t be your motive.
I do want you guys to know that I’m currently putting together a guide for you guys that can literally take you from A to B! From beginner blogger (tiny little fish in a big sea) to making your first sale (a shark at the top of the food chain)!
(It will launch in the near future)
Because, I totally get it. It’s frustrating reading a ton of articles wondering how exactly do they do it. And, nobody wants to share the details of exactly what they did.
I made a lot of mistakes my first few months as an online entrepreneur. My branding looked crappy for months and NOBODY told me. It took a lot of trial and error to get to where I am now and I’m no where close to where I want to be.
I’ll be honest with you. It’s not easy and it wont happen overnight but it’s totally worth it.
