I Started A Blog But Nobody Buys From Me

despaired, businessman, business
Click me!

That’s what a friend of mine told me a few weeks ago.

Help me, man!!!” was the only 3 words he said.

First of all, don’t expect to open a blog for a few weeks and see the results right away.

It takes years to manage and reap your rewards. He was so focused on the outcome, that he forgot he needs to put the hard work for the long time in it.

That is available for you too. Yeah, the one who is reading this. Most affiliate marketers face this problem.

They have high expectations with few amount of work. “Make money fast” doesn’t exist. You should know this by now.

If it was that easy, everybody will do it. But this is not for everybody. You need patience (a lot of it). This kind of business needs time to take off.

I started this blog 5 months ago and I barely see results with it (but no sales yet). Why? Because is not as easy as you think.

Plus, that making money online today is harder than ever. Not only that you have to be an authority to be able to sell something, but the BIG online companies will reject your blog if you are in this niche.

They have the advantage and they don’t want you too make the money. If you started in this niche, be prepared to compete against “the giants

They will do anything to take away the traffic that you get. And this will be the hardest part. Let’s see why.

People these days don’t read anymore as they used to be. They get bored easily if what you wrote is not engaging them emotionally

I know why I don’t make sales. People find me boring and they don’t click on my links. But that’s not going to stop me from writing.

The hard, the hard and it’s getting even harder. I can’t wait to see my first sale out of this blog. I will do anything to accomplish that, and if this means more writing and more effort to put in, then that’s what I’m going to do.

Nobody buys from you yet because:

A: They don’t know very well yet /  They don’t trust you

B: Your content is not so engaging /  Keep going

Don’t worry, you will see results in time. For now, keep grinding. Eventually Google will find you for some keywords you don’t even expect. And that is good news.

You will do great as long as you keep working. See you on top brother!

As Seen On Tv. Make Your Favorite Restaurant Dishes At Home!


Dear Fellow Foodie,

My name is Angel, and I have a confession. I LOVE taking my family out to eat! I’m sure you do, too. And we’re not the only one!

An average family eats out 3 times per week or more. In 2020, an average family spent about $2,700 a year in restaurants! That’s nearly HALF of their entire food budget!

That comes out to hundreds of dollars spent on food each month at the bare minimum!

Of course, there’s nothing wrong with spending money on your favorite foods – after all, you just can’t make those delicious dishes at home, right? And even if you tried, they just wouldn’t TASTE the same…

But what if you could:

  • Re-create your favorite restaurant’s dishes “on demand”, in your very own kitchen whenever you felt like it…

  • Make ALL your friends and family go wild over your cooking at the next party or gathering! (They might not even BELIEVE you cooked these!)…

  • Fool EVERYONE into thinking you’ve taken professional cooking classes by simply following simple, surefire instructions…

  • And of course SAVE MONEY because groceries are cheaper than restaurants, and you don’t need any special equipment or rare ingredients!

I Want To Make Money Online But I don’t Know How To Get Started

Affiliate Marketing

That should be your cue. With a 99% all done for you product, all that remains to be done is to promote.

Question is, how do you promote a product?

There are multiple ways, but the best way is to start a blog where you can write about it and then wait.

Pretty simple right? Imagine doing that to hundreds of products. Who gets the sales? YOU!

And it feels amazing to pocket those commissions up to 75%.

Clickbank.com is the best platform where you can get started.

There you will find thousands of products where you can choose from.

Just pick and start writing about that product, while you put your affiliate link inside the post.

That’s it!

John Crestani!

John Crestani

Hey there,

This is the #1 Internet Marketer online bar none. What I love about him is the 1 on 1 Skype sessions that he takes with you.

He literary takes you by the hand and shows you exactly where to invest your money so you can get sales fast and don’t get burned.

He is working with Clickbank, so if you don’t have a Clickbank account, this is not for you. I’m sorry.

This is only for serious Internet marketers who want to succeed in the online world.

Making Money Online Is Not As Easy As You Think

We must make mistakes to progress

Hey there. How are you? I know that you just typed in Google “How To Make Money Online” and you landed here.

Congratulations!!! You are in the right spot. I’m here to tell you that is not as easy as it’s presented in the online world.

You created your Clickbank account and your first affiliate link. You pasted that link on all social media networks possible waiting for a sale.

But that’s not all. No, no! You even created a landing page, right? Went to Udimi.com and created a solo ad that drives traffic to your landing page. Yet no sales!

You even went further and you bought your first autoresponder on Aweber! You started building your list, got a few subscribers, still NO SALES!!!

Your affiliate account is still empty after so much time and money invested. I’m here to tell you that you didn’t even scratched the surface of this thing.

You see, making money online is not easy because nobody knows who you are. If you want to make money online you need to do more than an email list.

You need:

  • Landing Pages
  • Email Software
  • Youtube Videos
  • A Facebook Page
  • An Instagram Account
  • A Blog
  • Money to invest in advertising

Then, you must connect these together and post content for years. Even then it’s not guaranteed that you will achieve success.

Making money online is like gambling. It needs a lot of investment from your side, but you have no guarantees that you will have returns.

It takes a load amount of time to get your first sale, and you won’t have sales consistently.

Only vendors sell consistently

Do you know why those gurus make so much money online on the Internet? It’s because they have the affiliates who sell their product on their behalf.

Then, they can brag about the sales that they made by playing and affiliate role, saying that “they just make money with affiliate marketing” but instead they are selling their own products.

You see, selling other people’s products it’s not easy stuff. And it’s not for everyone. Take me as an example, I don’t know how to sell.

I tried hundred of times and nobody bought from me. If this is the case, what makes you think they will buy from you?

Unless you are a charismatic motherfucker who knows how to edit YouTube videos. But many “vendors-affiliates” don’t do that.

How “they” make money online while you fail

Want to know the secret? Keep reading. This is nowhere else on the Internet, just here. Here what they do:

They open small LLC’s (Limited Liability Companies) because it’s cheap to get started. Then, they borrow money from the bank with the LLC on the line as guarantee (if they fail, they have nothing to lose)

With the borrowed money they hire programmers, social media managers, YouTube video editors, professional speakers and so on.

They create “story” videos saying that they come from poor surroundings and how they started from zero and how bad those time were but they discovered “the secret”

Now, this “secret” is what they will sell you. The SECRET to:

  • Make money online
  • Be healthier
  • Get motivated
  • Never work a day in your life
  • Have a wonderful life
  • Travel where you want
  • Blah blah blah…

It’s not them in the videos, they don’t create the content, someone else does, someone who gets paid (really well) does it.

They just claim and brag about their business. Heck, they don’t even bother doing that. They hire someone else to do this work for them.

What do you do wrong?

If you are like me you are doing the same mistake as I did (hundreds of times 😂). I will write this as BIG as i CAN.


You waste time watching thousands of tutorials on how to get sales with affiliate marketing, how to…

  • create social accounts
  • building email lists
  • creating landing pages
  • creating blogs

Yet your affiliate account is empty while their vendor account fills up from what you buy from them. Why would you buy from them? Because you want to be like them.

And you are spinning like a rat in a wheel on and on. As for me, I stopped chasing my tail and decided to write about this.

And that is how they work while you struggle. Do you want to succeed? Let me ask you again:


Then you need 3 things:

  1. MONEY (a lot of it)
  2. TIME (a lot of it)

You can’t do this alone. There has to be someone else who teaches you this. A coach!!! Someone who you can follow that guides you towards your goal.

I vouch for JOHN CRESTANI . Actually my whole website is about him. That is because this guy is awesome.

He’s going to teach you where to invest your money and how to invest them wisely in order to return on your investments.

Not only on videos but….one ONE TO ONE SKYPE SESSION personally! That’s why I like him. He will tell you exactly how:

  • To create your first product and sell it
  • Where to invest in advertising
  • How to attract people to your product
  • How to build your own website without hiring anyone
  • And much more…

That’s all I wanted you to know. Instead of mumbling around, choose HIM as a MENTOR! You will get SALES if you follow his steps exactly!


It’s Been A While…

We must make mistakes to progress

Boy, it’s been a while since I posted something on this blog. The beauty of having a blog is that you can post whenever you want, and write about whatever you want.

Since this Coronavirus lockdown, it’s getting weirder and weirder. So what can you do? What you like (in my case writing), your case might be different.

I keep trying making money with Clickbank, even though it’s a hard process. You need so much patience.

But I don’t quit, I just lay low from time to time, becoming lazy. Then I start again. I still use the old but gold method.

Landing page + subscribers

This is the method all internet marketers are using. You just build your list and that’s it. You start email them every week, waiting to make a sale.

It’s not working as good as it’s marketed but it’s the great way, it’s like having free advertising. Made some commissions every now and then, but not on a consistent basis.

The thrill to make money online is the reason why people are doing it. It’s fun when you made a sale and when you know how much you’ve struggled to make it.

Time invested, money invested and a lot of energy. But it worth. Anyway, I don’t have too much to say here.

I’m glad that I’m back to writing. I will do some more posts this year. Just enough for Google to like me more.

That is all

Just Started My First YouTube Ad

We must make mistakes to progress


I finally made it. Learned how to build a Youtube Ad. And it’s actually pretty cheap to start.

You need around $30 in the Google Ads platform for this. Then you can set your cost per view to be a couple of cents.

I recommend Youtube Ads, especially if you are promoting a high-ticket product because the chances of making a sale that way are pretty high with an ad.

All you need is a Google Ads account, a credit card so you can make the payment and you are good to go.

Building an ad it’s pretty easy

For this, you need to go to the affiliate page of the product that you are promoting and see if they have videos that you can upload them on Youtube so you can start your campaign.

Once you have the video, make sure that you upload it as “Unlisted” because if you are uploading it “Public” chances are that Youtube to flag your account for copyright infringement.

Then you can log in to your Google Ads account and start building the ad. I’m not going to make a tutorial out of this blog post as it takes too much information.

But I can tell you this. If you start with Youtube Ads, make sure that the product that you are promoting has a huge ROI.

You are not going to make tons of sales. But in my case, just one sale returns to me over $200 while I invested only $30 into the ad.

What if the ad doesn’t convert the first time?

You don’t have to worry about it. Just run it again and again. Invest another $30 and keep it running.

Of course, there is a chance to burn your money and it’s risky, but it worth trying.

It will be like a TV commercial. Oh, wait, I forgot to mention that when you are doing the add, make sure that you disable the placements on TV Screens.

Why is that? Because TV owners can’t click on your affiliate link from a TV. Use just desktops, phones and tablets.

Don’t post your affiliate link directly

Youtube does not accept the direct affiliate link as your website. Instead, go to WIX and create a free website and then you can post a button on your website that redirects to the affiliate offer.

Call this page a “bridge page” because it acts as a bridge between the affiliate offer and the user.

All right. Those are all the tips that I have for you. Now go and start that Youtube ad.

But don’t forget to…


Getting Rich Overnight Does Not Work

We must make mistakes to progress


Everyone is looking for this scheme. For years affiliate marketing was bombarded with people that want to make a “quick buck” every now and then.

I confess myself guilty of the same method. Until I found that it is not working that way.

If you want to make money online, you need to provide value in return, no matter how small it is.

A simple article can do the trick, but we are too lazy to write it. We just like to post the link and expect that someone clicks on it for no reason and buys.

I wish it was that easy. Hell, even with this blog, I’m still struggling to make it online.

The purpose

At least I have a purpose. To write. And I recommend you start doing that too if you want to start making money online.

You need to attract people first and then sell them. But unfortunately, you are doing the opposite.

You SPAM them directly with your affiliate link. Like I did. I’m not excluding myself from this group.

When I first got started

The first thing after I created a Clickbank account, I started just like everyone else.

What do you think I did? I went to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube and pasted my affiliate link there and then just sit and wait.

After a week of waiting and seeing no results, I QUIT! Just to start back again and again.

In the meantime, the algorithms have changed, and the affiliate links were not so EASY to promote anymore.

This drove me to where I am today. This blog. I finally realized that if I don’t give something in return, I’m not allowed to ask for money.

That’s how it works guys. I’ve could’ve started with Youtube, with Facebook pages, with Instagram posts.

But those methods are getting old and they will backfire if you continue to use them

So I thought, what the fuck! I don’t like to be in front of a camera, social media doesn’t work anymore anyway. What else can work?

Writing. It works in slow motion that is true, but it’s the only thing I can rely on these days.

And not normal writing, BLOG writing. I chose a blog because it’s a personal platform where you can do whatever you want.

Post whatever you want, and when you want to. That’s true freedom. Will people click on my links?

Maybe. I don’t care as long as I’m focused on my article. So I started getting visitors every day.

They are not much, but in the long run, this “small” blog will be like the snowball.

The most stupid thing in your life is to NOT start at all. You want to make money online, right?

Then work at it to see results. The results will not come right now, or in a few months, or even a few years.

Don’t underestimate the power of time. Rich people became rich in time. Who said that those “big names” that you see everywhere, achieved their status overnight?

They didn’t. Working a lot made them famous. Grinding at it to become successful.

It took them a couple of years. This is available to me and you as well. The difference is that I already started for three months.

What do you do? Do you keep reading “How to make money online guides” or you watch Clickbank videos on Youtube, but NO SALES.

What do you expect to find in a video about Clickbank, rather than someone showing how they are making money and how they get results?

Those are their results, NOT yours. Looking at others just wastes your precious time, when you can start doing it yourself from scratch.

I build this blog from scratch. Do you think I had 140 posts already written? Hell no. I’ve ground for 3 months to get here, and I still have to grind.

What about you? Wait…you didn’t even get started. Who do you think is going to make the first sale? Me or you?

Riches overnight is for poor people. People with a limited mindset. The ones that don’t act, they only expect.

So do you, just expecting the sale to “fall from the sky“. That’s what I did too.

Until I said “NO MORE“. It took me 15 years of waiting and expecting. Barely this year I got started doing something about it.

What happens if you NEVER do it? You will be left behind. And coming back up will be harder the next year.

So I suggest you start THIS year. Now I leave you to your thoughts. Just don’t forget to…


Getting Traffic From Udimi

We must make mistakes to progress


Udimi is a solo ads platform. What I like about it is that you cannot get scammed buying traffic from there.

The sellers are thoroughly verified by ID or passport and they are also verifying their email lists.

Technically is very easy to use. You just go to the seller and order the traffic. The seller then sends the link that you are providing to an email list that he/she owns.

You get the clicks and the sales and the seller gets the money for the service performed.

Be careful where you send the traffic to

I see a lot of people sending the traffic directly to an affiliate offer. This causes the “potential customer” to bounce off fast.

Make sure that you drive the traffic to a landing page. You can build it by yourself or you can simply buy one by clicking here.

If you don’t drive the traffic to a landing page so you can capture the email addresses of the clickers, you are WASTING YOUR MONEY.

You won’t get sales every time

Sometimes it takes multiple solo ads to run from different vendors in order to make a sale.

Usually, running a solo ad will not bring you the sale at first. But don’t get disappointed by that.

I keep running a solo ad every month and I still didn’t make any sales but instead, I started to build an email list that is constantly growing.

It costs around 0.40 cents per click

Most sellers will have a minimum of 0.40 cents a click. This means that you order 100 visits/clicks you would have to pay around $40 which I think is a great deal.

That is the cheapest price for Udimi. If you want to pay more per click it’s up to you.

The more the price, the better is the traffic quality to your landing page and better quality leads.

That’s about it. I leave you now, but don’t forget to…


What Happened To CB Passive Income?


I had used this product in the past. But hell, it was not called “Elite” and had a Clickbank Gravity of over 500 points back then.

If you are looking to buy this, click here. But the last version is now CLOSED. That’s a pity because I liked it so much.

It is the first product that made me the first sale on Clickbank. I will never forget.

I was starting to build my list and Patric Chan was sending emails on my behalf with my affiliate links embedded into it.

My job was to collect the leads. And that’s what I did for around three years. But on the sales page, Patric says the old version 5.0 had flaws.

I didn’t find any flaws in this system. It was running great. The problem was that the landing pages were not “Facebook-friendly”.

So I couldn’t promote them on Facebook. Which I think is correct. So I started to promote them on Udimi.com.

And from there I started to build my email list. It was flowing with leads. But it’s in the past now.

I don’t know what this new version brings on the table, because I decided to go with the 12 Minutes Affiliate System.

Which I think is the best system to make money online so far. What about you?

What do you think of the new CB Passive Income System? Is it good or bad?

I let you answer that in the comment section. Until then, don’t forget to…


Why Clickbank Products Have Such A Bad Rep?

We must make mistakes to progress


It’s simple. There are a lot of “crappy” products out there but most of the bad rep is done by us, the affiliates.

We just get the affiliate link and we start “spamming” them on social media. Most of us do that.

I see affiliates that create Youtube channels with boring videos and the affiliate link in the description.

I say that because I myself started to do affiliate marketing like everyone else.

Actually the product that you promote does not matter. It’s how you promote it and where do you promote it.

If you start to promote it on your blog, then congratulations, you are on the right platform, because the blog is yours.

But what about Facebook, Youtube or Instagram? They are NOT yours, yet as far as I can see, they let you do it.

And you do take advantage of this, but in the end, you will not get anywhere. Why?

Because people don’t just click & buy for no reason. They need one, so if they don’t find it, they don’t even click, not to mention buy from you.

How to fix this?

Start a blog. With your own platform in hand, who is stopping you to promote whatever you want?

But wait. It’s not that easy, as you need to start growing the blog, with content.

Articles, pictures, infographics. Or you can do it like me. Keep it on the text and “some” images.

Don’t be afraid to fail. The only direction you can go is up as long as you make progress with this.

But the secret key is to keep it original. Don’t copy anyone’s content and paste it on your blog. Write the way you feel about it.

And keep it consistent. Write as much as you can in one day. I write sometimes 3 posts a day if “the Muse” descends.

Why not you? Just find a topic and “blab” about it. It’s not rocket science. But expect the results in time.

It’s not like you will have millions of views at startup. I do this for three months, and I still barely have 2 to 3 visits a day.

For me is just enough, it means progress. Go ahead and do the same.

There are NOT GUARANTEED sales, but it is a step up in this competition.

Everybody is competing

That’s all there is. A “competition” between affiliates. To bring more followers and sales.

But what if you choose not to compete and do your own thing? Do you think I’m competing with other blogs? Hell no.

That’s why I like to keep it simple and sweet on this blog. No distracting images and colors. Just simple text and some links.

You don’t need more than that. Do you think that your readers will care how fancy the website is?

NO! They will only look for the information they need, then leave. Your job is to have a call to action and tell the user what to do, or else you don’t get the clicks.

That is all. Don’t forget to…


SEO vs GTMetrix

We must make mistakes to progress


You already know what SEO is. I don’t have to explain it here. But this goes down in the favor of GTMetrix.

GTMetrix is a page speed analyzer. It seems that the websites nowadays are so many that SEO is starting to lose ground in favor of speed.

If your website does not load quickly enough, then Google doesn’t send you traffic.

As much as you are trying to do Search Engine Optimization on your website, the loading speed of it starts to matter more than anything.

Today, people are not patient enough to wait for a webpage to load. If your website doesn’t load in 2 seconds, then the user will leave, never to return and the ranking in Google drops down.

So I suggest you take a look at GTMetrix. The tool that analyzes your website and tells you what you need to optimize on it to gain more speed.

Maybe you are using too many images, and they are not served correctly. That is a penalty in the search engine.

Or maybe your javascript code or CSS is loading before the HTML code, reducing the load time on your website.

The bad the score, the less traffic you will get. Even if you did everything right from the SEO standpoint.

Loading speed has become more important than SEO and it will become even more in the future.

Google will start to slap websites with a low GTMetrix score. So do some research about your website and optimize it now, so you don’t get caught off guard.

I’ve observed more traffic coming to my blog since I gave it an A score on GTMetrix.

Why do you get a low score then?

If you run a WordPress blog, chances are that you use a lot of plugins. These plugins will consume server resources, so the loading time will drop.

If you are using a lot of images and you don’t scale them, again your load time drops dramatically.

To fix this, deactivate BIG plugins like Elementor, or fancy themes like JupiterX and start using something small.

Don’t forget to use a cache plugin like W3 Total Cache and an optimization plugin like Autoptimize to minify your code.

You need the speed if you want to make money online with your website and to stand out from the crowd.

Now I will leave you to your thoughts, but don’t forget to…


Consistency Is The Mother Of Everything

We must make mistakes to progress


Whatever you do BE CONSISTENT. This blog is about “how to make money online” that is why I consistently post about this.

But maybe you are not here to make money online. Maybe you just broke up with someone, Or you just had a fight. I assume that you are here out of two reasons:

  1. To make money online (duh!)
  2. To be entertained.

I’m not here to entertain you, unfortunately. If you are looking for this then Youtube or Facebook is for you.

That’s what most people look for, money or entertainment. If they have the money they want entertainment if they have too much entertainment they want more money.

All right then, MONEY it is

The #1 reason you don’t make money online, is because you are not consistent with what you are doing.

You may start a website, you may start a Youtube channel, maybe you start to build your email list, but are you consistent with it?

The answer is NO! Because you get distracted easily and you quit early. Well, I decided not to quit anymore. I do whatever it takes to succeed.

But what if I have to write 1K posts for this?

I will gladly do this with no questions asked. But usually, after 250 posts, Google starts to pity you and you and starts to send you traffic.

Why? Because you have been consistent about it. That’s why making money online is a CONSISTENT discipline.

You start with nothing, but as you keep going, people will start to notice your online presence.

Social Proof

Another reason why you don’t make money online is that you don’t have enough social proof, followers, likes and so on, you got the idea.

And let’s face it, you take making money online for granted. You think that posting an affiliate link on a platform that is not yours, will make your sales.

Want to SPAM your affiliate link? Do it on your blog. It’s your property. You OWN it! Just like a piece of real estate.

Who is the boss of your blog? You are. You decide how it looks, and what’s on it. Don’t copy anyone else.

Show that you can make money online different than everyone else. Do you think that writing is dead?

People don’t read these days? Remember how everything was before the TV and phones.

Hell, even on your phone, you are texting a lot. Why not do that on a blog too?

It doesn’t have to look in a certain way, it’s just text. If you how to write a letter, you can write a blog post on a consistent basis too.

Don’t worry about the traffic

Focus on your posts. If you don’t write, they don’t come. And when I say focus on your writing, I mean that for a couple of years, all right? Not for 7 days.

I see a lot of you out there just starting a blog and expecting a flood of traffic.

You don’t become popular overnight. Not even as a Youtuber. Those guys that you see, with a lot of followers, they started years ago, just like me and you.

With zero. It all starts from zero. So don’t worry. Just start, be consistent and the results will appear.

I leave you here but don’t forget…
