Do you need content? Do you WRITE content?

Article marketing is a fun and simple method to create valuable content that can be used a whole lot of different ways. Consider this for a moment…

You write a 7 Top Tips article about any given topic, and in each tip, you have 7 great ways to apply your Tips. You write several sentences, or say 700 words about each tip, and put all those ‘sub-headed articles’ into one folder using the 7 Top Tips article with each of the tips and an introductory paragraph about each topic, add a title, and Introduction, and a Final Summary – and call it a book – with roughly 40K words, put a cover on it and publish it, do you think that book might have some high-quality content?

Do you think there might be several different pieces of content in that book that you could apply to your blog, your website, your social media, or your business, to add value? And how much would that book be worth to you or your business?

And you don’t have to write it all at once, you could put together the concepts, write out the sub-headers, and write one article a week to post in your blog – then put them all in a single folder at the end of the year and you’d have a book almost ready to publish. Just pull together the concepts and rush that puppy to the printer!
