Challenge Yourself with an Article Marketing Marathon

by | Aug 8, 2009 | Marketing & Selling

This week’s posts have been about writing swiftly. But to do this well takes practice. Here are three ways that you can push yourself to write more quickly.

Work Against the Clock
Set a timer and give yourself 10 to 15 minutes to write. You can use a kitchen timer, a timer on your computer, even the alarm on your cell phone. It doesn’t matter. You basically need an audio queue that will tell you to stop writing after 10 to 15 minutes.

When you become hyper-focused on writing for this short period of time, you may surprise yourself with what you can accomplish!

Race an Article Writing Buddy
Find someone that you can race against the clock with. Sometimes, having that accountability partner can inspire you to success more than just a kitchen timer can.

You can get together at the library or your local coffee shop and race each other to see who can write the most articles in an allotted time. Of course, when keeping score, you have to discount the crap articles you write!

Want to make it interesting? Add a prize for the winner! Maybe it could be having your articles posted to a directory for you, or another slice of double fudge cake a la mode.

Set aside one day to do an article writing marathon. You can even train for the “event” by practicing using the above two methods.

Set aside one day to focus on writing articles. It doesn’t even have to be a whole day. Maybe just 2 to 4 hours. Your goal is to achieve an average of at least 5 articles written per hour.

This is a great way to push yourself and grow your ability to write quickly and well at the same time.

Remember, your key word research and headline creation time does not count — that is pre-writing and would make it nearly impossible to write 5 articles in an hour if it was included in the timing.
