Newbie Article Writers- Article Marketing A Word of Advice
Newbie article writers tend to be misled into believing that success in article marketing will happen overnight. I know, I was one of them. Have you been misled? Heed this advice about online writing.

Money to Be Made

I came into this profession of internet writing and marketing thinking I pretty much had it in the bag. I had written magazine articles, newspaper articles, and countless corporate financial reports. After retiring from the corporate world, I was looking for something else to do.

In my research, I quickly discovered that consumers were spending a lot of money on the Internet. Consumer internet spending was on the rise. Every year it grew over the previous year. I wanted a piece of that pie.

In fact, just last year, 2010, according to U.S. Department of Commerce consumers spent $44 billion on the Internet a significant increase over the previous year's $26 billion.

Like many of you, I wandered around the Internet looking for opportunities. I discovered online writing for article marketing.

Because I had always wanted to be a writer, not a novelist, but a non-fiction writer and because I had some writing experience, I said to myself, "I can do that. I have some writing experience. I can do internet writing and marketing. It'll be a piece of cake."

The Work

I wrote articles and wrote more articles. I built a website and posted those articles on it. But, guess what, no sales. Needless to say, my perceived writing experience did not qualify me to be an article marketer. Have you experienced that?

Like any other Newbie, I scoured the internet looking for answers. I jumped from forum to forum, from website to website looking for answers, not to mention that I was illiterate when it came to all the terminology, terminology that gave me headaches from information overload.

It was very frustrating. Still, I knew that there was money to be made on the Internet. Perhaps you have been there too. I kept at it.

Magic Bullet

I suspect that because of my own need for immediate satisfaction, I jumped on so many bandwagons that taught success was some magic bullet, or that by just doing this or that, or buying this system or that technique, I would make the millions of dollars that I had visualized when I first started.

Those were a lot of dead ends. I do not mean to imply that I didn't learn anything. I did. It was along hard road, before I consistently made money. You may find yourself in that same position.

I do not want to discourage you. There is money to be made in writing for the internet and article marketing. Some of you may even become wealthy in a short period. That is not the norm. Article marketing is a business.

A Business

I finally realized that writing for the internet and article marketing was a business. I realized that I should treat it as a business and that there was work to be done.

Treat your article writing as a business and your chances of success, of earning a good living increase exponentially.

Learn From Others

There are a lot of good article writing teachers that can guide you and that have experienced what you may be experiencing now, frustration. There are teachers and mentors that sincerely want to help.

Be aware that there are also some charlatans lurking in the ethers. Charlatans that are more than willing to take your money and not give you any helpful or useful information.

In writing for the internet there is no magic bullet, no secret technique that will do it all for you. There may well be some secret but dishonest and 'black hat' methods that roam around in the secret underworld of article marketing. Stay away from them. They may line your pockets in the short run, but eventually they will be found out and all your effort will be lost.

How do you know the good article writing teachers and mentors? Most will tell you that what they teach is 80% work and 20% technique. They do not promise you overnight success. They will answer their emails.

One last piece of advice, follow your gut feeling. If it's too good to be true, it probably is.
