Your Blog Is Doomed To Failure

I absolutely marvel at the mindset of some people.  They’ve obviously never heard of the old saying “Penny wise, pound foolish”.

Perhaps the best way to describe this type of person is by giving an example.

Link building expert Danny Cooper recently released a report called the Blog Comment Blueprint in which he reveals his methods for building links via blog commenting.  It’s a powerful yet easy to use strategy that can quickly bring you thousands of free backlinks and a steady stream of traffic (which is exactly what so many of you are struggling with!)

Now I’ve seen at least a half dozen positive reviews of Blog Comment Blueprint and when I read through the comments after the review I see the same thing again and again…

“Sounds great!  It’s just not in my budget right now or I’d pick it up right away.”

“I really can’t afford to splurge on it.”

Now, I can understand that reaction if you’re talking about SpeedPPC which costs $397.  But Danny’s report costs just $9

Seriously.  You want to build a blog or website that earns thousands of dollars a month but you’re not willing to cough up a couple dollars for a report that can get you there a whole lot faster? 

If this is you then you have a shortsighted attitude and I boldly predict you will never be a success until you accept the fact that it takes money to spend money.  Your blog is doomed to failure. 

And I’m not telling you to go out and buy every ebook, script, and program you can find.  I don’t think its smart to waste your money…but you should be willing to invest a bit to increase your own knowledge and efficiency. 

Educational reports and tools that make you more productive will pay for themselves many times over if you take action.

So skip lunch at McDonalds one day this week and splurge on a copy of the Blog Comment Blueprint…you just might find that opening your wallet a bit helps you reach your goals faster than trying to go the freebie route.

    Well, i agree with you. In order to get something, you sometimes have to give also, and it could come back in much more multiplies. But at the end, even if you don’t get any results, you have one more experience behind yourself.

    $9 is not a lot of money and this ebook will teach you a thing or two. I have wasted a lot more money on crappier ebooks.

  5. Yan (12 comments.) says:

    Danny’s ebook is worth more than $9 if you ask me but as what Dennis said, their words speak louder than action.

    I find its so hard to tell which ebooks are worth the money or will eventually end up free in the end anyways…

    Hi Mike. The same people that are unwilling to invest in their online business are also unable to invest their time where it’s needed. They’re too busy surfing/clicking for junk traffic or spamming blogs thinking they found a cheap shortcut.

    I have no problem with gaining links and traffic by blog commenting but if it doesn’t contribute to the conversation then the whole concept really is doomed to failure. I think you have to truly enjoy sharing and reading opinions of others to have any success in blogging.

    Saying a blog is going to die simply because the blogger is not willing to spend $9 is a little over the top. Had you said the blog would die if you’re not going to put the work into creating good quality content, continual updates, good commenting policy and the like I would have agreed with you but as you didn’t I am afraid I will have to disagree.

    Apart from my hosting costs I haven’t spent a cent and while I haven’t achieved Problogger status, my blogs certainly aren’t dead.

    On the other hand, if I wanted to really promote it as a business, then I would definitely source all avenues including the purchase of the book.

    @Sire: I think you’re taking me a little too literally. I don’t mean to say your blog will fail if you don’t read Danny’s report. Its the unwillingness to take their blog seriously that will lead to their demise.

    Perhaps, I do have the tendency of taking things to literally. In my defense though, the following extract from your post does lead to that conclusion.

    Perhaps my error was not in taking it literally but in focusing too much on one aspect of a post and not taking it as a small part of the whole.

    I agree with you about the amount of the money. It’s ridiculous to say $9 is too mcuh to spend on something that you are trying to be successful with. I guess my only question would be, how do I know it’s a really good report? Personally I’d spend the $9 if I thought it was a really good report.

    I’ve not read it but I’ve read a number of his posts and case studies and their contents are excellent. I’ve bought my fair share of ebooks, reports as low as $7 and most of them were ripoffs, but I agree that you should be willing to spend a few dollars if the information can help you.
