Writing a steady stream of content may be “THE” hardest thing for anyone trying to make money online. Most people are excited at first but bog down extremely fast when they have completed the basics of setting up their site. Mainly most people get so overwhelmed learning all the technical aspects of marketing online or running a blog, that they don’t have time to write. These are easy to remedy if you keep a few things in mind.
Use your learning experiences as inspiration for writing
Write about what you are learning. Every blog or no matter what type of product or service you are trying to make money with has a personality. Allow your personality to show in you blog. If you are studying ways to keep your spam to a minimum post an article on it and share it with your readers and maybe others doing the same thing online will link to you. Post an article about every problem that you face and the steps others can take to avoid the headache. People will appreciate it. Most bloggers are reading other blogs. Don’t forget that marketing and blogging is an actual community online.
Turn everything into an excuse to post an article with your keywords
Use your blog for what it is, a “web” “log” or online journal. It is just a public version of it. People are intrigued by personal stories and activities of the people behind the scenes of professional sites they visit. It allows them to get to know you to a degree. Keep your posts professional of course and never pass up the opportunity to put your keywords in every post. Many sites and blogs won’t get enough traffic in the early stages to worry about mistakes or trying to be a perfectionist when it comes to what you think users will think of your site. By the time you complete your optimization likely all your posts will be in your sites archives and not readily available to your readers but the search engines will see a steady stream on new content for a long period of time which have your keywords in it.
Get email alerts to stay on top of the news about your keywords
Set up “Google Alerts” from Google News. This allows you to go to Google and click the news link at the top left. When you search inside Google News you can set up an email alert that will send you the new stories based on what every topic you like. Of course you are going to want to read about other sites like yours, possibly in the same industry, and general news on the keywords your site is trying to optimize for. This gives you fresh ideas and topics to write about on a daily basis. We suggest you have one gmail account dedicated to handling all your email needs for your website. Dealing with spam or personal emails constantly will only slow your productivity down.
When you explain anything to anyone turn it into a post
Make posts about your email activity. Many times we get questions about things that take us over 500 words to explain. Don’t waste that effort and time. Rewrite that email into a great post for your site. One opportunity that will arise is when you have to explain to family or friends what you are trying to do with your site. Do your best to give them details and information that will show them that you are doing something worth while and why it is a good idea. These emails are perfect for changing them into great blog content.
Auto creation systems for content will hurt your optimization efforts
Stay away from auto content posting systems. It may seem like a good idea but it will definitely hurt your optimization. “CONTENT IS KING!” screams Google and the other search engines. Everyone needs to pay close attention to what the rulers of the Internet are saying. We know many ways to cheat and have followed all the so called SEO Tricks but all of them get shut down or penalized. The search engines control who makes money online and who doesn’t. They have guidelines to follow and in those guides they constantly emphasize “ORIGINAL CONTENT.” Do yourself a favor and don’t try to out-smart thousands of people smarter than you all working together to stop you from cheating. Just do what they say.
When all else false outsource your content writing
Outsourcing is a very viable and reliable way to pump your site full of content. There are extremely skilled copywriters in India, South East Asia, Russia and other places. There are Americans living all over the world that are willing to work for very cheap. Many countries have citizens that are just as skilled. You can go on sites like http://scriptlance.com, htp://elance.com and many others. You post your project and get bids from various people for prices. You can see their past record of happy or unhappy customers and how many total projects they have completed successfully. Keep in mind though it takes as much time to work these sites for bids and post specs on your projects as it does to write the content your lazy self. Only kidding.
