Blog writing isn't the easiest thing to do in the world. If you know the 5 ways to increase your blog writing speed then you can usually get more posts up and running each week and pull in the traffic you deserve! Blogging is crucial when it comes to a business growth since it will continually bring in traffic after you start to be seen by the search engines.
By posting just once a month to your websites blog you won't get noticed too much. If you plan to do a blog post once a week for a couple months and think you're good forever, you have something to think about because you're completely wrong. If your blog becomes stagnant, the search engines will know since there are usually time stamps on your posts as well as Google archiving what they already indexed and then not seeing anything new.
If you are consistently blogging on your business or eCommerce website you will notice the benefits. Roughly 10 to 15 blog posts per month can get your around 3 to 4 times as many leads each month because you will start to become an authority after a few months. Obviously it will take a good amount of time to have a massive amount of traffic coming in, but you'll have to think baby steps and not leaps in time
1. List your posts
Posting in a list format will keep peoples attention because it's a natural feel to go from 1 to 2 then to 3 and so on. People will feel they need to finish all the points in your list and for this reason you will be able to convert more visitors into sales.
This also works well because you can write down all of your titles and then break them down into bullet points. Then go into each post and write down details for each point and then you're done Doing it this way is one of my favorite ways to get a message or point across. You can actually see it in the works with this discussion lol
Another thing that will work well with this is adding in some images. You will be able to break up the article or post and it's like a mental break for your readers, which is great to keep them reading long articles and posts
2. Write down your full month of titles ahead of time
Sit down and think about your 10 to 15 posts you want to go live that month and write down all the titles. This will definitely speed up your writing time if you pair it with the bullet pint method above. You will now have your titles and all the bullet points to hit when typing out your content. I do this all the time and it makes my content writing times speed up a ton. Usually I'll take 30 minutes to write up a 1,500 to 2,000 word post and if I don't know what my titles and bullet points are, it could take up to an hour to get a well worded article done.
3. Avoid all distractions
When I'm working I will usually turn off my TV and put my phone on silent. I do this because I know they will distract me from my writing and increase my time per blog post. I think of myself as someone that doesn't get distracted easily, but I'm sure a lot of people think the same thing. In reality it's pretty easy to get distracted and I've noticed my weak points, which are TV and my phone lol.
Pairing this with writing your titles ahead of time works extremely well. I'll turn everything off and basically be a low tech household besides having my laptop on and hammer out a ton of topics with bullet points at the beginning of the week. Sometimes I'll sit down for a few hours on Monday and write down a weeks worth of things I want to write about so I can speed up my times.
4. Follow deadlines
You'll need to have some deadlines in place so that you can stick to them in order to be on time with everything you have to do during the day. I like to set my time per post at 30 minutes and I really try to stick to it. Usually I can finish some posts in 10 to 15 minutes and others in 35 to 40. If I plan on writing and scheduling 10 posts for the day, then I'll set aside 5 hours of scheduled writing (30 minutes a piece). I'll start writing and then stop when I finish all 10. After I finish all 10 I then go take a break and start doing whatever else I wanted to do that day By combining this with the "avoid all distractions" I can sometimes speed through all of my posts in around 3 hours if I'm really in a good groove
You'll need to keep the quality of your blog posts up while decreasing the time it takes to churn them out. To do this you should follow the 4 ways I mentioned above to increase your blog writing speed. I actually do everything above and I can easily write 5,000+ words a day and add them to my blogs I've noticed a ton of traffic coming in to my blog posts because of the scheduling I put in place and all the methods I use to increase my speeds
