The “Why” In Medium Earning Stories
There is always a “Y” for everything that we do, sometimes “Z” comes a coincidence.
It’s no secret we have more people making less than a $100 monthly than people making thousands of dollars. This alone may influence the many articles we’ve seen about medium earnings. Making at least a $100 or more is a big deal it’s quite an achievement, especially because we have a high number of writers who don’t make enough to pay for the partner program with their earnings, which is sad wouldn’t you say?
With that in mind I decided to share with you a few of the many reasons why writers decide to share their monthly earnings, and tips to help others achieve similar results, or at least try. Because let’s face it, if it was that easy everyone would do it. The guarantees are not guaranteed, and what follows isn’t certain:
If I Can Do It You Can Do It Too :)
Says who, You?
Like hell that’s true! The idea behind this line is not selling you a lie, depending on who shares this with you of course, but it isn’t that simple, so it isn’t always true. If I can do it, I can at least show you what I did to achieve the $200, $500, or $1000 mark. When using the same or similar strategies the chances of you getting positive results are higher. Yes! Higher, and guarantee isn’t part of this. But what can I say, words sell!
This is how people usually tell the story, right?
“Here’s how I made $100 with a single story this month, and how you can do it too”
Now, if the above head line was something like “ Here’s how I made $100 with a single story this month and how you can try too” this wouldn’t be convincing enough, and “ How I made $100 this month with a single story step by step guide” would be too realistic. And, although I appreciate realistic views I acknowledge that it isn’t what we want to hear. Amazing stories sell better, sometimes too good to be true.
Fact: This isn’t guaranteed but the headline makes it sound like it is. Hard work does pay off, following certain steps may get you quite an interesting cheque, and sometimes not even close to that. How many people read the story that made that writer a $100, how many people are going to read your story, how can you guarantee that everyone of the readers will read the whole story? The like for like, and claps in exchange of claps is uncertain, and receiving exactly the same amount of money, and the possibility of the same reading time would actually be scary, just think about it.
… And sometimes the product sucks!
The higher the number the better. Wouldn’t you like to know how to make a thousand $ in one month by following a few tips, and tricks? A $100 in a week? $50 with a single article etcetera. There is nothing wrong with this but “these articles help generate more income, and maybe reach that $100” the more I claim to have made the better, because you want to make whatever I claim, and even more as a result you’d read such an article about medium riches expecting to learn how, and when to hit 3, 4, and 5 figures.
Everyone Else Is Doing It
Do you remember the backpack kid and his dance move, the YouTube videos with a title that kept updating every time the videos were watched, and why most of our smartphones right now have between two to four rear cameras?
Everyone at some point was doing this, it’s no secret that people run out of ideas and look for new things to share. If you like something that is trending as part of a marketing technique you can study the content (from whoever) and make a copy, just make it better, or at least try. This is what motivated some writers to cone up with these stories. Some of these stories inspired me to write this, others are just as bad as this is :(
We don’t always look at these stories like a bunch of lies or bad marketing schemes, but sometimes as motivation. The fact that some writers successfully achieved something you’ve been working hard for may put you down or give you the energy to work hard enough to get there. Even if we don’t make as much as expected we still make something. In the end it’s all that matters. When we try we get to witness the outcome of our determination and hard work. Taking that very first step is very important. Results may vary, but you won’t know unless you try.
