How Long for Success with Internet Marketing?

How Long for Success with Internet Marketing?

Have you ever wondered how long for success with Internet marketing?

Anyone going into Internet marketing always wants to know how long for success with Internet marketing – exactly how long it will take?


While success can be different for each person, the underlying question beneath it all is, “How long will it be until I start making steady money?”

The answer to that is that it’s different for every person because it depends on your idea of success as well as many other factors. Some of the other factors involved will even vary from marketer to marketer.

You might be able to see your first sale the very first week that you’re in business as a marketer, yet on the flip side of that fast first week sale, you could toil all year long before you ever see the first dime for all of your efforts.

What is it that makes the difference between faster profits and having to wait?  One of the factors could be the way you’ve set up the business – the model that you use in your strategy for success.

Another factor could be how much time you have to put into the business.  Obviously, the more time you have to work the business, the faster you’ll reach each goal that you set for your monetary success.

It also depends on how quickly you can put into practice each step that you need to take to set up the business.  Some of these steps might take you longer than it does the next person as it depends on  your current skill set and the learning curve associated with the task.  Get my free training:  Golden Nuggets – Internet Marketing Basics

How long it will take you to succeed depends on what you choose to do.  Taking the route of a service provider, like ghostwriting, could mean increased profits in a shorter amount of time, whereas launching your own info product requires planning, research, product creation, site launch, and traffic building.

You have to consider your personal situation – how much time can you invest in working on your business?  How much money do you need to make right this second?  If you’re desperate, it’s best to get a job and build up your online income gradually.  If that is not possible, you can provide services online: earn while you learn Internet marketing.

Desperation can cause you to panic and make mistakes or pursue unethical income streams. You want to work on something that will prove profitable for the long haul, not something that may help you make a few bucks fast – but soils your reputation in the meantime.

Don’t trust marketers who guarantee that you’ll make a set dollar amount in a certain time span.  Without knowing your situation, it’s impossible for them to make such claims and you should be very wary of them, as they do not know how long for success with Internet marketing for you.

    Thanks Carol, for your advice so far!

    I’ve been pouring over the “how to start” materials on Anthonys’ site….and have discovered your site as a wonderful place of learning also!

    Anthony suggested using professional writers initially for ads… you recommend the same?

    Thanks gal! Sure appreciate your time with those of us that are new!

    OH…one more question. You mentioned you bought into Justin Glovers’ info….did you find his audio or video to be the most instructive? And it was a bit difficult to wade through his advertising to actually be able to find a purchase page for his products. Have any suggestions on navigation?

      Hello Deb,

      You’re welcome for the advice – I enjoy helping people.

      I have never written an ad for Google AdWords….yet. So not sure. Anthony is a master at it, but it needs to fit your budget.

      Which product of Justin’s are you referring to? The audio product is actually 4 hours of video; he converted it to be more valuable than it already was.

      Hope to help.
