Moving forward with automation -Feedback Appreciated

by charlieboy61 5 replies
I have started my blog about 2 months back. I have done a review of what I have done and analyzed what I have spent my time on and how to move forward.

I have listed below the activities which I have spent time on, with the activity with the most time spent listed first.

a) Writing. The majority of the time is spent writing my blog posts. I take around 2 hours to write a post which i think is quite long. I also write articles for article directory, set up squidoo and hubpages. Did 1 press release as well.

b) Social marketing. A lot of my traffic comes from facebook. Even though I rank in 1st page of google for my keywords, facebook brings me more traffic than google. The problem is that when I am on facebook, i get distracted easily so when I have done my social marketing, I am still on the site doing non productive things

c) SEO activities such as social bookmarking and building links.

One way to move forward is through automation or maybe outsourcing so that the amount of time I need to spend on my online marketing is reduced. I would like to post the following questions:

a) How do i automate the above three activities? Are there any automation tools or automation software that will make writing posts and articles easier, make submissions of press release and articles easier, assist in social marketing. If possible, I would like to have an integrated solution which can fix the majority of the above limitations or problems.

b) Can anyone share their system of outsourcing the above activities. I have used fiverr but its more on a ad-hoc basis.

c) I think that I have done the basic. Any suggestions that will help me to move to the next level is also appreciated.

I hope that the response given to this posting will help other warriors who are facing similar problems.

      I use quite a few WP plugins to automate a few things like syndicating the content (wp syndicator). I integrate FB with my blogs so when I post on blog it's seen on my FB page as well... and also when I send emails from Aweber you can see it on Twitter as well. Also, there's blog automation in Aweber so you can use all these tools to your liking....

      If you have a detailed look at all the WP plugins available you can automate almost everything... but would that be fun anymore? I don't myself spend lots of time writing my blog's posts - because I like to get straight to the point and I love the industry.

      But I've also have some other blogs - where I automate the posting - but the articles are prepared ahead. There are quite few great plugins that do that and just enjoy sitting and drinking some coffee in the meantime

      What I need to make manually and actually I love to do is to withdraw the money from ATM and cashing the checks but that's another topic of course

    Let me try to answer this as your question is structured and be of help

    a)
    I usually outsource writing - Buy a good PLR package in your niche and then have it rewritten. That way its very easy and you can almost get a unique article for about $1.5 or less each time you want content. Its much easier too since you don't have to research

    b)
    Use WP Plugins for Social Traffic - There are many plugins that can help you put your content on social networking sites and also I would suggest that you install big social bookmarking butons and social media sharing buttons on your website so that the users can also see and share your article/content if they find it interesting.

    c) I love SENuke X for this and used it for a very long time before quitting recently on it. Not that the product is bad, its awesome! Just that I don't get time any more. I have my coaching clients to take care of the Rich Schefren suggests that you don't do all your tasks yourself. And if Mike Filsaime's success coach says that you need to free your time - you definitely need to... Moreover I was getting lazy clicking buttons, I like to talk
    :p

    For outsourcing I suggest that you go to freelancer and hire people who have 85% completion rate and at least 100 reviews. Don't waste your time if any of these 2 criteria is not met

    Yes, there are plugins for blog automation like articles and videos. But these doesn't mean that you have to rely with these software. You still have to monitor your blog.
