The answer to your question depends on what success means to you.
If your website isn't making money yet, then the work you must do is different than if your website is making money. In my experience, once your site is ranking and making a profit, then it takes less work to maintain it.
The work you must do also depends on the scope of your site. If you are building an authority site, then you must publish much content. But, if you are building a 'sniper' site, then posting once or twice a month could be enough.
The same goes for link building. If your target keyword is tough, then you need to build more links. But, if your target keyword is easy, then you may rank with less links.
