What’s the biggest mistake that most new blog owners make? What is it that ensures that the majority of blogs won’t be successful? That they won’t grow to become the next Four Hour Blog or the next Smart Passive Income? There are plenty of answers of course but I think I have a good idea what the biggest culprit of all is.

And that is that they set out with the wrong intention. Specifically? They set out in order to become rich and/or give up their main job. Most people create a blog because they want to make a living.

This then means that they’ll work hard to begin with, before quickly becoming disheartened that it ‘isn’t working’. And it means they’ll make bad decisions in a bid to get rich quick or to trick people into laying down their cash. These are mistakes that ultimately lead to people losing faith in their brand and never returning to their site again (let alone buying from them!).

So what do you do instead?

Simple: set out to supplement rather than replace your income. Better yet, set out to create something you’re proud of and to build a following. If you set out with this intention, then it will change everything that you do and the way you approach each step.

Specifically, if you set out to supplement your income, then suddenly $30 a week is a bonus rather than something to be disappointed about. $30 a week is enough that you can go out for a nice meal every week and not feel guilty about it. And it means that that many people really appreciate what you’re doing and really want to read what you’re writing! It’s highly rewarding.

What’s more, is that you’ll find you make the right decisions instead of the wrong ones. With this approach, you’ll start asking what can make the best long term impact. What will people want to read? And this is a much healthier way to approach your blogging if you want to gradually grow an audience you can eventually monetize.

What you can then do is to gradually move from writing a blog as a hobby/way to make some money on the side and move toward writing a blog as a full time job. The more it makes, the more time you can dedicate to it. This way, you literally can’t fail!

About Me

I've been designing and marketing websites and businesses for over 24 years and prior to this I worked in sales, marketing and big business for almost 18 years... which makes me not only old, but also highly experienced at this marketing and Internet stuff.  I've won lots of awards and helped thousands of people, and this website is a testament to the information I share freely to help others succeed online.

When I'm not designing websites, doing this online marketing stuff or writing. I love nothing more than getting out on a weekend and scuba diving. I'm a qualified rescue diver and love getting wet in the waters around Perth and Rottenest Island. I also cycle, which must be a sight as I'm not the thinnest of people (lol)... and a paddle on a kayak or a swim helps makes most weeks, perfect. At home I have a marine reef tank, which I just love and on top of that I've an awesome dog, called Ziggy.

What Can I Do For You?

I can work with you to design a website and marketing strategy that actually works. You'll get a website that looks fantastic but also attracts and engages your potential customers, helping generate leads, sales and profits.

What Will It Cost ?

A discussion about your requirements is completely free of charge.

Solutions are tailored to meet your budget and success goals as much as possible, and websites have been delivered costing just a few hundreds dollars a month or for one of payments of a few thousand... it all comes down to our discussions, if you want a website that generates millions of dollars in sales your budget will obviously be bigger, if you're a small business then your goals and costs will be more realistic, at least to start with.
