Before I start this post I want to say that this is for anyone out there that feels unworthy, or feels like they are failing at making money online. There is no technical lesson here only some real life stuff.
I have heard people tell me they weren’t sure about something so they didn’t try it. One of these things is Adsense. Do you know how many people I have heard say they are scared to mess up with Adsense, so they have shied away till they learn more to be comfortable with it? How can you make money online with Adsense if you don’t try it out enough?
We are all full of failures. When you hear about how well guys like Vic, Grizz, and Court do, do you really think they nail every niche they work? You can’t win on every site. Let me give you an example. I have worked 2 niches in the last couple weeks now, that according to the Google keyword tool as well as other search traffic tools should bring in over 90,000 searches a month. They have turned out to be duds! After ranking well for the keywords the traffic was not there. I was able to nail top 3 posts on both of these niches. So what happened? Those 2 niches were failures.
I think its important for those of you who are only making a dollar a day or even 10 dollars a day to remember something. Failing is a part of succeeding. What is a failure? A failure is an expectation of what you think a site should be making and it is not. It causes you to question whether you can make money online or not. Have I ever had my share of these feelings in the past? Heck yes! Sometimes I felt like I was spinning my wheels and not getting anywhere. What changed? Well I just told you those last 2 niches I worked recently were failures right? Wrong!! They really weren’t. I say this because they are still good sites. they still have content, and they still have links. If I ever work something related or similar I now have a place to link from.
Here is what I want you to remember if this post was talking to you.
- Its only a failure when you have given up.
- More growth, more websites, and a bigger network only makes you more powerful.
- Don’t compare with what others are doing. Focus on your own growth.
- Even the Pros have failures.
- Don’t give up!!
