The catch 22 about starting a make money online blogs is that you had to have already made money for you to make money online with that blog. That was a mouthful. Basically, if you dont already make money online, then you can’t make money online. Huh? Bloggernoob dot com makes money online. It didn’t always make money online. It was hard to monetize this site in the early stages. It was difficult because bloggernoob was a MMO blog that didn’t already make money. I think my blog became successful because i put in a lot of work. I think there was a lot of luck involved as well. I tried out a lot of different things and i learned a lot with this blog. I’ve learned that income reports help in making money online.
Why do income reports help in making money online? Easy! It’s because people need to see that money can be made online. When a new visitor comes to your site, they’re not inclined to click on one of those 125×125 sidebar ads. First off, they probably are not interested in any of that. Secondly, they can sense that it’s an ad. That’s why income reports are important in monetizing your site. When you write up income reports, put in your affiliate links. Once a visitor sees your income, they will click to see if they can replicate what you just did.
I know for a fact that income reports work. Each month, when i publish my income report, i get new referral sign ups. During the rest of the month, only a few will sign up. But the day i post my income reports, i get over ten referrals. It’s not coincidence.
In honor of this post, and I wanted to link to all of my income reports. (I don’t want to till the end of June to get some more referral signup) Also, it might be interesting for you guys to see how my blog has progressed. Here are my past income reports.
