When people begin their journey with internet marketing, they become very anxious to make money right away. The number one question on their mind, is when they are going to start making some serious money.

The short answer is, "It depends." The timeline will depend upon a few factors. It depends upon what someone would call serious money, how they would define a successful venture, as well as the actual marketer themselves.

On the one hand, with one venture, you could make money right out the gate. On the other hand, some people find that it takes a year, possibly years, before they start to see a return on their investment.

One of the factors that could make a difference, is the business model that you are using. Also, you have to consider the amount of time that you are investing into your business. Needless to say, the more time that you invest in the business, the more results that you will see.

Having said, this, the amount of time required for financial success will vary on the business owner, and how efficient they are with their time, and with the methods that they are using.

Yet another factor with regards to internet business success, is the vehicle that you are using to make money. For example, if you choose to work in the services industry, such as a ghostwriter, then you will make money quicker than if you are producing your own product. A self-producer has to perform planning, research, web site launch and administration, as well as marketing.

You also have to take a look at what factors you have going on in your life. If you have bills to be met immediately, then you'll have to work a stable job. You might have to work at your online business on the side, and leave your stable, bill-paying job gradually.

Don't make the mistake that many desperate people have made. They jump on any get-rich scheme, or any make money now scheme. However, they ruin their long-term reputation. The key is slow and steady. Use reputable methods. Only represent products and services that you can be proud of.

Finally, ignore those who promise a set dollar amount if you follow their methods, or if you buy their product. There are simply too many variables involved for anyone to be able to make such bold claims.
