Bum Marketing Methods - Write How Many An Hour??!!

by 46 comments
Hey all,

I have read bum marketing methods a few times now and still can't grasp how to write 5 articles an hour. I have only been at this for a little over a month now and can manage to pump out 3 articles an hour. I have a total of 17 live articles on ezine, and 15 pending, plus I have 5 more waiting once I get some approved.

Can someone shed some light on how to become a faster writer? I know writing is a personal thing and everyone has different styles and what not but still there has to be a method to mass produce articles on the scale Travis is talking about. I know about out sourcing but I prefer to write my own...for now. Maybe the more you do it the faster you get?

I find all of my keywords first and then sit and write, but like I said I can only pump out 3 an hour.

Any advice?

    I personally think that three an hour is plenty. Heck, three a day is plenty in my book!

    I wouldn't worry too much about it, but if you want to pump out 5 an hour, just remember that you can quickly and easily sacrifice quality for quantity when you're talking about writing that fast...and that is something you DON'T want to do.

      You don't need to write 5 an hour - if I did 5 every hour I'd burn out very quickly. Alot of people advocate quantity when it comes to bum marketing but I say quality is a whole lot better. You can hit the jackpot with one single article and earn $500 a month from it - 20 crappy articles and you may only earn $50 a month.

      Focus on testing things such as style, titles, resource boxes etc and once you get good at article marketing you won't need to write so many to do well.

    Allen's right - it doesn't come down to how man you do an hour. It's so much more about consistency. I have a customer who orders 10, 250 word articles about internet marketing. This is a topic I'm pretty knowledgeable about - so it only takes me about 1 hr 15 mins to fill this daily order. Seems like a very short time but I am not this fast for topics I'm not that familiar with because then I have to factor in all the research.

    Anyway - now I'm starting to ramble

    The point is, I know Allen and Steven Wagenheim will agree when I sum up by saying - if you consistently put out 3 articles a day you're far ahead of everyone else who put out one or less per day. Thinking on the bright side, to get to this ideal spot - all it takes for you is one hour a day.

    Keep pumping out three a day and watch the clicks start flowing in

    Hope this all made sense in the end,

    I think you are doing fantastic! Pumping out an article every 20 minutes is great. I can write articles rather quickly, but I admit, I burn out after a few hours. I have to take a lot of breaks in between.

    If you focus more on the traffic each article can generate from the directory to your site, I think it takes the pressure off in terms of quantity. Personally, instead of writing 2 articles say in an hour, I'll take more time on one, but make sure it has the best title I can think of and the best ending. In my opinion, those matter the most when your focus is on CTR. The results can be dramatic. I have an article with about 13,500 views at EZA, but a horrible 3% CTR. Something like 450 click-thrus. One of my more recent articles, where I really took the time to come up with a great title and an ending that really entices people to click thru to learn more, has a 26% CTR.

    I guess if you have lots of time to spend writing, go for both. Get good at coming up with intriguing titles and cliffhanger endings and pump out all you can. I wish I had 8 hours a day. If I could get 26% CTR on every article with that kind of time to invest, I'm pretty sure I could quit my J.O.B. by year's end. Sigh.

      Thanks John,

      It has taken me some time but I am getting better at becoming up with original and enticing titles and content.

      I'm finding the more I write the better I become.
      I wish I had time to write all day but I don't.... I doubt anyone really does, things tend to get in the way.
