Once you’ve decided that article marketing is going to be a part of your strategic marketing plan, you’ll need to find time to devote to this task. As someone who has faced this challenge to varying degrees of success, I’d like to share with you some tips that I’ve found helpful in making room for this effective long-term strategy in my schedule.
Devote a single day or two to this task.
The thing with writing is, the more you do it the faster and better you become. If you devote a single day or weekend to doing nothing but writing articles that you will post over the next several weeks, months or even the year, you’ll be surprised at how many decent articles you can pump out.
If you use this method, you’ll only need to set aside this day or weekend about three to four times a year, possibly even less. For in that concentrated amount of time, you can write enough articles for an entire year! In fact, I teach this method in my Article Marketing Marathon.
Schedule 30-minutes to an hour each day for this task.
If you make a habit of writing articles for 30 to 60 minutes every day (or at least a few days a week), you’ll not only get better at writing articles, but you’ll also get faster. Once you’ve got your groove, you can write a 300-500 word article on a topic you know well in about 15 minutes.
If you use this method, I would recommend scheduling it at least three times a week. So, for example, you’ve decided to set aside 30 minutes for this task on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. On Monday, you’ll do the set up research. Do some key word research and come up with some article titles, maybe even find some resource material online. On Wednesday, you’ll write your articles. And, on Friday, you’ll proof-read the articles and post them to article directories.
