Just a few months ago I received a mail from one of my subscribers describing launching of his new site. He was really very excited and thought that this site really brings him a handful of money. When I visited his site I was also surprised by the creative designing, easy and quick navigation, graphics, etc. but what I came to know by his second email after some time that he is not earning a single penny.
In fact, he has not earned that much amount that he spends on developing the site. He was really very upset and sounds dull. What the reasons is that his mind-blowing site not earn a single paper money? The answer is his site didn’t get targeted visitors which really want to buy the products he is offering.
