It takes time, it takes loads of hard work, it takes plenty of rumination, and above all, it takes patience (and a lot of that). Are you just starting at this wonderful field? Already feeling excited after looking at so many opportunities lying around? Having dreams of overnight riches …? Hold on; before you start on your endeavor all keyed up, let me put across a word of caution.

Sonny! … It’s going to be tough.

First thing first, be Patient:

Yes, online business or internet marketing proved to be a source of “easy money” in the past, in fact it proved to be “crazy money” for some, but with the passage of time, as more and more entrepreneurs step into the arena and the competition build up, the road to online success has become relatively lengthy and reasonably taxing. Now, it normally takes months and months of hard work before the lady-luck smiles down on you (in online business lady-luck is known as Google).

Read that last paragraph again; in fact keep reading until it settles down in your subconscious. I’m not emphasizing on this point to discourage anybody, but I see so many people acting like a cat on a hot tin roof as soon as they launch their website. This type of excitement ultimately leads to disappointment. There are exceptions, even I’ve some personal experiences of making it to the first page of Google quite speedily but gradually it’s becoming atypical for a website to get there in short time.

Go all-out:

When I say be patient, I don’t want you to get the wrong picture, so let me elucidate. Patience is not sluggishness, it’s not slothfulness, it’s definitely not about being lazy. Unfortunately, we misinterpret patience as doing nothing and waiting for some miracles to happen. In reality, Patience is working hard, giving your best shot and more importantly, keep giving your best shot until you get there. This simple, yet very effective prescription is all you need to flourish; key to the wonderful door of success, road to the victory or whatever delightful name you’d like to give.

Chew over your plan time and again:

Long-term planning doesn’t really go well with Search engine optimization, even worse is when you make plans, put down a strategy and then carry on and on without paying attention on what’s going into the world of search engines or search engine optimization. You need to revise, modify or adjust your strategy quite regularly. Internet marketing is a lot more dynamic and changing than offline marketing, on surface it looks quite easy, in actual fact it is extremely laborious, even if it involves more mental work than physical.
