Make Money Online bloggers are bad for business

shakira makes money onlineI like to think that bloggernoob’s readers are not other make money online bloggers. But the truth of the matter is, that some of them are. I know that i’m not making much off of these readers. I’d rather have readers who are complete noobs. I don’t want “wanna be” johnchows reading my blog. Why? Because they read johnchow that’s why. It’s probably safe to assume that most MMO bloggers read chow or ron jeremy. If that’s the case, i’m not making any referral income cause they probably signed up under chow.

If your readers are make money bloggers, then you won’t make any money. We blog about the same thing. We push the same junk programs. Instead of herbal vitamins, cleaning products, or miracle diet pills, we push “Get Rich Quick” schemes. Meaning it’s a pyramid scheme. Whoever writes about an affiliate network first, makes all the money. That’s why chow, shoemoney, and problogger are the only ones making any real money in this niche. They get the inside scoop on new ad networks. By the time you hear of a new ad program, it’s already too late. Your readers have already signed up. That’s why it’s not a good idea to start a “make money online” blog.

It’s better to blog about general info stuff. Blog about celebrities or politics. Blog about video games or tech gadgets instead. If you start a MMO blog, then the only people who will have interest in your blog are other MMO bloggers. You can’t make money off of MMO bloggers unless you start up a really clever scam. Blog about mommy stuff. That way, you’ll grow a base of readers who don’t know anything about making money online. After your blog grows, you can push MMO programs and they’ll all join under you. You have to get nonchow readers, not johnchow readers. (Damn, i should have used that as my title)

How does a pyramid scheme work? You have one guy at the top and everyone beneath him in the pyramid makes nothing. Well, the few guys under the top guys make a few bucks. Anyway, all those reverse funnel systems and richguy schemes only make money for the few who got in early. The system is set up that way. That’s why you shouldn’t read the big MMO blogs. They have nothing to offer you. You’ll only be part of base of their pyramid. You won’t have any customers to sell the junk to. Cause your customers are customers of chow. And, they are trying to sell you the same thing you’re trying to sell them.

If you want to make money, you have to blog about something else. You have to start your own pyramid. It took me a while to figure this out. When a new money program launches, you see the same exact post on a thousand MMO blogs. How can you compete with 1000 blogs? You can’t! That is why i want to try to switch my blog into a new direction. I was stupid when i started this blog. I’m glad i started this blog, but if i could do thing over again, i wouldn’t start a MMO blog. I could probably turn this blog into a MMO giant. But, that would require a lot of cash investment. I don’t want to spend thousands a month on ads like chow. And i don’t want to start a new pyramid scheme.

    lol, I noticed that with your Make Money Online with post. Some blogs have already written about it days before you. So are you really going to change niche or you are just writing a post about your allegedly pain. You can start posting about affiliate marketing.

    technoob- i was going to buy a few weeks ago. ๐Ÿ˜‰ maybe i should have…i could have sold it to you. ๐Ÿ˜‰ yeah. i’m going to try to switch gears on this blog. It’s till going to be a make money online blog. But it’s going to dive deeper into affiliate marketing. Do less paid plugs etc.

    I would have to agree with you. Many of the smaller “make money online” blogs are a lot better of a read. I personally started mine not to make money, but to show ways to make money to regurgitate some of the dribble I paid for from my college marketing courses. I also enjoy just writing about what I want. So I give you mad props on your honesty.
    Thanks again for a great post.

    Totally true dude!… I started one a few months ago and it really doesn’t earn me much at all… but I don’t really care either… my other blogs are more popular and more fun… therefore I put more effort into them… I will keep the money blog though for my few readers who like it and keep posting sporadically about a product or program that’s worked for me or other little useful tidbits of information that might be helpful to someone

    Chow and those others are more often than not giving glib or limited information. Or if they do have something of value, it’s so far over my head that it still is of no use to me. I’d much rather hang around here. Thanks.

    Honestly, I started my blog to learn about making money online, not to actually do it. I don’t put much money into it, but am practicing skills I think will be useful in the future. I’m starting a new site, it will have multiple topic areas and knowing how to use affiliates and ppc will be valuable to me in generating revenue on this site.

    I agree, MMO blogs are a dime a dozen. But the lessons taught are valuable. You just have to figure out how to make the most of the information.

    Regardless of the route you take, I’ll still be following your blog. Good luck!

    Well you got a complete Noob whether you like it or not LOL

    Can’t say as I wanna be a John Chow but would like some sort of income from blogging.

    After saying that perhaps I shouldn’t be reading your blog or commenting??

    Besides you made a small amount of money off me the other day. (wink, wink)

    steve- thanks steve. I’m not sure if college marketing courses will help with internet marketing. textbook marketing doesn’t really fly well with internet marketing. Internet marketing is like hardcore porn, and textbook marketing is like softcore erotica. What does that mean? I don’t know. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    rg- mmo blogging is dead. we have killed it. did i just quote nietzsche?

    deb- thanks debby. Don’t worry, i took it the good way. ๐Ÿ˜‰ i wish i never become like chow and ron jeremy. Actually i wouldn’t mind being like ron jeremy the porn star. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    bsa- u want to learn but not do? hmm. interesting. ๐Ÿ˜‰ i’d rather do and not learn. Wonder if there is a halfway point. Thanks for reading my blog. Hopefully all the trash i’m throwing at you isn’t as trashy as chow or ron jeremy.

    chelle- awesome!!! i wish i were like u! i wish i could write 5 blogs that had nothing to do with blogging or making money online. I actually bought a domain for screenwriting. I wanted to write a screenplay. a little dream of mine. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    wendy- wink wink. domo arigoto. wendy roboto! did u signup for pepperjam? u get the $10 yet?

    Susan- Make money online types are so boring. So square and sleazy. Like really greasy used car salesmen types. They make bad customers too. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    The competition is very high in MMO blogs, but you need to have a strategy to compete. The best way to beat your competitors is to be patient. Yes, patience. Most MMO bloggers quit after a few months, or they stick with the blog but change niche.

    They need link building strategies and that takes a lot of time. You can be the best writer, but if you suck in the search engine rankings, you won’t get very far unless you market yourself very well in the social network community such as John Chow.

    The chance of someone being another John Chow is very slim.
