If you are anything like me, then you know that in order to accomplish a goal, you need to set up some sort of accountability. When I’m able to plan my goals and follow up on my progress, I’m able to accomplish much more.
That is the purpose of this page. This is the Content Creation Group (explained here); goal tracking page. As you will see from the chart below; we have a large number of participants already! The individuals listed below are the ones that have given me their goal amount of content for the month of November. In addition, there are nearly 100 participants who have signed up on the email list, but have not publicly disclosed their goals. If you still want to participate, its not too late! Simply leave a comment below before Nov. 5th, and I’ll add your information.
The purpose of this group is simple. We want to motivate each other to accomplish our content creation goals during the month of November! For example, I’ve set a goal to write 16 blog posts in the month of November on NichePursuits.com. This is almost twice what I typically do.
However, the real reason, is to see some results from our content marketing efforts! I personally expect to see more Google traffic, return visitors, and referrals by increasing my content production. All of us participating will have slightly different end result goals; but in a nutshell, we hope these efforts will lead to more traffic, more subscribers, more referrals, or more sales.
I have personally always noticed increased search traffic to my site the couple of days immediately following my blog posts. In addition, I found an interesting case study that backs up these claims as well. Kuno Creative did a study showing the results of increasing post frequency to 5 to 10 times a week (yes, that is a lot). Take a look at this graphic to see what increasing your post frequency can do:
Obviously, you can’t just throw up junk. Each post needs to be high quality and relevant. Or if you are posting on news or events occurring in your industry, they should be timely and thoughtful (perhaps not as much depth or analysis is required for rapidly developing news items).
This page and chart will be updated throughout the month. The chart is fairly simple and self-explanatory. The final column is one that will be updated throughout the month. I have decided to update it 3 times on: Nov. 11th, Nov. 21th, and at the completion of the month. So, come back here to see the progress of everyone participating throughout the month!!

I need as much motivation as anyone else, so I will be posting my own progress more frequently on the NichePursuits.com Facebook page. I will be at least during the weekdays on the Facebook page.
In addition, I’ll stay in touch at least once a week via email. Finally, I’m also considering a Webinar or 2 for the challenge; just to keep us all on task.
Overall, if you haven’t joined yet – you still have a few more days to add your info (until November 5th)! Just leave a comment below with your monthly goal and website. Finally, please feel free to join the group email list, so I can stay in touch throughout the month.
