The article concerns the question – How Long Does It Take To Get Results With Article Marketing? Most internet marketers who want to promote their website using article marketing make the very common mistake of expecting instant results. Article marketing, just like SEO, is a long-term strategy. What is a reasonable time frame to get results with your article marketing campaigns?
If you have been online for a while, you may have found many so-called experts or other internet marketers telling you that writing an article would instantly get your article or your site to page one of search results. But nothing could be further from the truth, except if you are promoting a very low competition keyword that gets a couple of searches per day.
If you are just starting with article marketing, you might think that submitting 5 articles to 20 directories will do the trick, and when you see poor results, you will start asking yourself what went wrong. After all, maybe you had started to believe all these people who promised you instant riches or an easy ticket to wealth. I think we’ve all been there.
There are 2 major points you should be aware of if you want to make article marketing work for you.
1. The first important point is that to make things happen, you’ll need at least 3 months. This is the time frame that will get you to where you want or at least put you on the right track. And it is not only true for article marketing, but also for SEO, or pretty much any traffic generation method outside paid traffic. If your website is brand new and you are brand new to internet marketing, it may even take you up to 6 months to see results.
2. The second point is that you need to submit articles consistently. Consistency is probably the major factor of success for any online promotion technique. You do not need to submit a ton of articles. You only need to be consistent with your article submissions, which is quite different. Submit 2 articles per week during 3 months and you will start getting very good results. Do this during a year and you will have the results you are after, or even much better results.
I would like to tell you the story of an internet marketer I know who started a network marketing online business less than 2 years ago.
He made the commitment to promote his website with article marketing only and to write one very high quality article every single day. He submitted the article and promoted it right away on social networks, bookmarking sites, and video sites.
After 3 months he had published 60 articles and he had an average of 150 unique visitors per day to his website. He went on and published more articles, not every day but consistently. And now, less than 2 years after he got started, he gets more than 2,000 unique visitors per day to his website and has achieved a multiple six-figure yearly income. I think for the first 60 days he didn’t look at his results at all. He just wrote, published and promoted articles consistently.
Even if these results might not be typical, average, etc., this story shows that submitting articles consistently over the long term will get you traffic, rankings, subscribers, and sales. Article marketing must be considered as a long term marketing technique. You will see that your efforts will pay off big time if you manage to be consistent. This is one of the big secrets of internet marketing success with article marketing.
