3 reasons your website isn’t making any money

As a former web designer, I liiiiive for a well-executed website. So you can understand why it strikes my designer nerve when I see gurus gassin’ people up with the whole “Build it and they will come” mantra. I don’t mean to bust your bubble but that’s just not true. Successful websites are well thought out and they are very intentional. But when you don’t know what your site needs, you can run into issues with converting. With that being said, let’s get in three of the most common reasons your site isn’t making money.

The whole site is confusing.


I can’t tell you how many times I go on someone’s website & don’t know what the hell is going on. No consumer connection, blurry photos. This is costing you money. Think about your favorite brands.

You just popped up with a link telling people to place their orders on your new website but you’ve been taking orders in your dm for over a year. You have to push as if it’s your latest product. Also, many entrepreneurs misdiagnose their problems. Sometimes it’s not your website at all. It could be your copy, presentation, etc.

What to do: Build some hype behind your website. It’s your digital business home! Give them a solid launch date. And when you launch, constantly drop your links so they can get used to using your website to do business with you.

Now, if creating a website still has you shaking your head thinking “Just throw the whole site away. ” Don’t worry, I gotcha covered. Audit your website with
