It’s fun to read famous people’s biographies, especially in children’s educational materials or in the short, condensed books you often see on the grocery store racks. When you read over them, their lives seem to be laid out like a map, with each page adding another progressive chapter to a particular person’s life. It’s some of the most entertaining reading you can ever get your hands on.
As entertaining as it is, it’s sometimes not that accurate. While the writers of these books cover the major points, they can mislead the reader by omitting some of the juicier, edgier information of the person’s life. Not so much the scandals that happened, but rather the intricacies of the person’s life that were not so progressive; for example, when they made mistakes or suffered tragedy. While it is impossible to cover a whole life in a limited word space, readers have to be aware that most lives are full of folly and these famous folks endured as much as any other human, be they Warren Buffett, Jorge Luis Borges, or Bill Cosby.
The lesson to be learned from this understanding is that you have to find certain grooves in your life and ride them out as much as you can. Furthermore, you have to know that for every venture you undertake, there will be some hardships in finding your groove. The saying goes: “You can’t make the team if you don’t go to bat.”
Doing online article submissions in online business is similar. Finding a good, successful groove is hard to do, so it’s best to approach it with some foreknowledge that there will be pitfalls along the way that you have to overcome before your business becomes successful for you. You may know why article submission works for some online business pros, but you might not know about some problematic areas you may encounter. Having a heads up on these will help you find your groove faster.
You are often going to be doing manual article submission, whereby you have to get the articles submitted to web sites yourself. A lot of online business pros do this strongly at first, but then give up if they get no response. This isn’t a good way to go. A better way is to devise a submission schedule and get your articles written, proofread, and submitted on those dates, and then track the results over time. Doing too many submissions too fast doesn’t come to much and quitting too soon doesn’t allow you to build up any reputation at all. You also have to find the best article submission sites for your articles and use those as your primary references. Doing too much too soon never yields much in online business and in article submissions.

A lot of business pros swear by using an article writing and submission service for your business, as it takes the worry about getting a groove away completely. To a degree, this is true. They write, edit, and submit your articles for you and can do their darnedest to get you attention online through article submission. But they aren’t cheap and some of them aren’t that great either. You are likely on a budget and can only afford so much external service payments for you business. When it comes to article submissions, you may have to do a few before you get good at them, but you can get good at them eventually. Often undertaking that extra bit of work in article submissions yourself helps you find your groove on a personal level and you eventually get the technique branded on your brain. This is sometimes tough, but it can become fun and you can always do it yourself.
It’s cliché, but you have to really take your time in online business article submissions. Finding a steady groove over time allows people to get to know you and read what you have to say. If your material is good quality, your progression of work will be recognized and your problems will be minimized.
