Are you confused why your website is not making money? You may not be targeting the correct audience, or perhaps aren't presenting the right market offering to appeal to them.

In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Neil Patel cautions that simply plastering your website with ads will not translate into instant dollars. More likely, the ads take a larger chunk of the profits than you've bargained for. So, using third-party services and hoping they will equate to profit, probably won't happen.

Furthermore, Patel also stresses how the true way to make money from your website, is to create your own product or service. When pinpointing what this may be, you can consider your audience's needs as well as your personal passions. Figure out what your audience is interested in by sending out a survey and get to the root of what they need help with.
