Want to know how many bloggers fail in blogging?

You may be surprised at how easy it is.

Just read on to find out!

Give Up Too Soon

Perhaps the most common mistake aside from choosing the wrong niche is simply giving up too soon. Almost any blog could eventually become very profitable if given enough time, but the majority of people will give up long before that time.

The average business offline takes between one and three years to become profitable, but the average person seems to give up on a blog after a month or two if it doesn’t start making money immediately. Why is this?

For one thing, some people seem to think blogging is a “get rich quick” method. It’s not.

It takes time, hard work, and dedication. It’s not easy.

It’s not fast. It’s not a miracle.

Create Bad Content

Even if you get everything else right, creating bad content will destroy your chances of getting considerable traffic and making decent money.

Here are some reasons why good content is a must:

Your content won’t be shared virally if it isn’t really great.
Your bounce rate (the number of people who quickly leave your site without reading your content) will be high, which will keep you from ranking well in Google.

People won’t trust your authority in your niche. They won’t click your ads, because they won’t be there long enough to and they won’t trust you enough to. And they won’t come back to your site.

Choose the Wrong Niche

When it comes to blogging, it’s critical to choose the right niche right from the start. It will be a complete waste of time and money if you set out to make money blogging and you choose a niche that isn’t going to be profitable.

While there’s no way to be 100% certain, there are a number of ways to figure out which niches are most likely to be profitable.

Competition – Believe it or not, competition is good. It means the niche has some interest. Too much competition could be a bad thing, but you shouldn’t worry about a significant amount of it.

Monetization – You should find out if there are a lot of products available to promote. If you can’t find any, it probably means the niche is not profitable.

Commercial Intent – This is a fancy term to refer to whether or not people in this niche will buy anything. If it’s something like “funny videos”, good luck making money with it.

It would be possible with a very large amount of traffic, but difficult all around. You don’t have to be in a “product”-centric niche like “women’s shoes”, but you do need to be in a niche where people are known to buy stuff, like golf or weight loss.
