I 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.
