Yesterday, I posted about the link between more website content and more search engine traffic. At the end of the post, I threw out the idea of forming a group that could motivate each other to create more content for their websites. Well, I received lots of positive feedback in the both the comments and through emails. So, I’m excited to announce the Content Creation Group on NichePursuits.com!
Before we get started, I want to set out some expectations and explain what its all about.
What is the Content Creation Group?
The content creation group is for people that want to set a goal for the amount of blog posts or website content that they will produce in the month of November. The idea is to set a goal for the month of November that is both a stretch but also achievable.
The goal can be the number of articles you will write per day, per week, or per month. For example, my goal is going to be to write 4 blogs posts each week during November on my site here at NichePursuits.com. However, others may want to set a goal to write 2 or 3 articles each day that will be placed on 2 or 3 different sites. So, if you own multiple sites, you can just share your goal number of articles written total. Others may want to simply set a monthly goal. That’s fine, just set a goal number: daily, weekly, or monthly for the month of November.
Overall, the idea is NOT just to produce a bunch of content, but ideally to produce high quality content. In the month of November, we are going to maximize our quality AND quantity output. So, if setting a goal to write multiple articles everyday might sacrifice quality, then don’t set the goal. However, if you think you can write 1 quality article a day – that might be a good goal for you. Everyone will be different.
Who Can Join?
Anyone producing content can join. In fact, if you are a podcast, video, or other content producer – you are also welcome to join! Simply specify the type of content you will be producing along with your goal!
What’s the Purpose?
The overall purpose is to produce more content, gain more traffic to your sites, and ideally expand your audience and/or sales. I’m a strong believer in content marketing as a form of building an audience and business. I hope that by forming this group, we can all set ambitious goals and then motivate each other along the way to achieve these goals. Think of it as a way to jump start yourself or your business.
Throughout the month, on at least a weekly basis, we will be sharing on the NichePursuits.com Facebook page, email, and right here on NichePursuits.com. By staying accountable to each other, we can all stay more motivated and more likely to hit our goals.
How Do I Join?
To join the Content Creation Group, you need to follow these 3 steps:
- Post a comment below telling us that you are in! In the comment, please include a daily, weekly, or monthly goal for the month of November. Also, if possible, please share the Blog/URL where you will be posting your content so we can follow up. (I will be making the first comment below, so you can follow my example).
- Opt-in to the email list below. This is so I can follow up on a weekly basis, give you updates, and overall keep us all accountable.
- Like the NichePursuits.com Facebook page (if you haven’t already). I will be posting more updates and we can interact more frequently on the Facebook page to keep each other motivated during the month.
Once you follow the 3 steps to join, I’ll be able to stay in touch with you, so we can stay on task. At the end of November, I will look for your feedback on results. Specifically, I will be looking for increased traffic, sales, or other success stories that you want to share. So, in early December, I will create an entire write-up about the successes and lessons learned.
This should be a lot of fun and very motivating! Who’s in??
