It is perhaps a human nature to want to see results immediately but this is not the way this works so you better understand it because if you don't you will quit before you see any results.
I see this question almost every day on forum discussions if article marketing really works because I have tried it and I did not see any results.
But trying is failing with honors and if you try once or even a couple of times it is not enough.
You see it is very possible to make a small fortune with just one article but if you are an article marketing newbie it is very unlikely that you will make this kind of money the first time you write an article.
It is ok to aim high and that you should but you also have to do the other part too and that is to develop the skill and gain the knowledge so you can reach the desired result.
This is important to understand because you are not going to make money by accident you will make money by providing service and you can only provide service if you have the knowledge and skill required.
And reason why it will take time for you to make some money if you are new to online business is because it takes time to develop such skill and gain that knowledge.
If you understand that there are some laws governing making money then you won't get nervous if you don't see any results immediately and instead you concentrate on developing that skill so you can provide quality service by which you will make money.
