5 Steps To Publish 956 Content Pieces In One Year [Fast Track Method]
Publishing 956 content pieces does take a lot of hard work and focus. But at the same time, it isn't as difficult as it sounds.
When your business is contingent upon your:
- level of motivation
- available time
- energy levels
- current level of skill sets
it makes building a business extremely difficult. That is why I recommend outsourcing parts of your work.
If you are willing to invest both your time and money into your affiliate marketing business, you can follow this method to create an avalanche of content that is focused and designed to create traffic, subscribers, and affiliate commissions.
Who This Content Plan Is For
The way this content publishing plan is designed specially for someone who has recently started or is planning to start a new website. It can definitely be altered if you have your own site already that has a lot of content published.
But the reason why it is done in this order is that starting a brand new site needs time to get indexed and crawled by Google before it can get ranked and get traffic.
Step 1: Laying The Foundation
This first step shouldn't really take very long. It consists of getting your Wordpress site up and running, as well as your YouTube channel, and social profiles you wish to publish content too. In this particular example I recommend setting up your Facebook Fanpage and LinkedIn Profiles because they support video content.
You also need to pick 1 core/focus product that you want to promote. It needs to be something you can widely recommend, and provide you with a decent amount of revenue for each referral you generate.
You will be building out an entire campaign that consists of a lot of content, so you need to make sure that the product you choose is worth your time.
Also in this step you should be compiling a list of keywords to focus your content on. Please make sure that you verify every keyword phrase meets the threshold requirements for Search Traffic and QSR. At a minimum, you should have:
10 Review Keywords - You should be reviewing your own focus product as well as 9 other competitor products. Even though you can recommend the competitor products in the reviews, and generate referral revenue from them if they have affiliate programs, you should recommend your focus product in the competitor reviews as well.
- Aweber Review
- GetResponse Review
- MailChimp Review
- OpinMonster Review
- Sendy Review
- Mautic Review
10 Best Of/Comparative Keywords - These need to be keywords where you are comparing products in a product category. A few examples of these can be:
Top [Product Category] in [Current Year]
- Top Email Autoresponders in 2020
Best [Product Category] in [Current Year]
- Best Email Autoresponders in 2020
[Product 1] vs [Product 2]
- Aweber vs GetResponse
100 Long-tail Keywords
Long-tail keywords are typically 4-6 words in length and often can be a question, or be placed into the form of a question.
They are often very easy keywords to rank on Google because the don't have very many competing pages. When searching for good long-tail keywords you need to make sure they make grammatical sense, and correlate well with the product you are offering.
If you need some recommendations for some keyword tools to help you compile a list of keyword, take a look at my popular blog post:
Once you have all of these steps completed you are ready to move into step 2.
Step 2: The 10x10x100 Method (90 Days)
In this step, you have 90 days to create and publish 120 blog posts, in a very specific order.
The review blog posts are your first priority. The reason why is that they lay the foundation to helping your audience make a decision to buy your products. They will also be where your best of/comparative posts can link too.
The best of/comparative posts are the second set of posts. These are comparing and reviewing products in a product category. These types of posts help people who are aware of that they need to buy a particular product to help them but aren't sure what options they have available too them.
It is alright for you to have miniature reviews in these posts. But you should also be linking these too your more in-depth review posts you created first.
The last set of posts need to be your long-tail posts. These should be helping people who are experiencing the side effect of a problem but are not sure what the problem is yet. The best scenario for conversions for long-tail keywords is to direct them to a landing page for an ethical bribe or possibly a free trial for the focus product you are recommending.

After you have successfully published 120 blog posts in this step, you are ready to move into step 3.
Step 3: Duplicate Content To YouTube (90 Days)
In this step you will be taking your blog posts, and turning them into videos that you can publish over on YouTube. The type of video that you should be creating in this step is called "Content Videos".
There are a few tools that make it easy for you to do this, such as:
- Content Samurai aka Vidnami
This is the one I personally use. It allows you to create content style videos literally in 15 minutes or fewer. The videos are fully customizable to make them your exact specifications. Plus you can combine the videos with your own screen recordings if you need too.
Lumen5 is one of the main competitors of Content Samurai. They aren't quite as good as Content Samurai, but they create similar videos and they have more affordable plans if you are on a tight budget.
Screencast-o-matic is a very affordable screen recording software that allows you to create recordings very easily. They even have a scripting feature if you want to record one paragraph at a time.
I also recommend you invest in a high-quality microphone in this step, because you will be doing a lot of your own voice-over. I personally use a Blue Yeti Microphone, and that is definitely one of the highly rated ones for blogging. However, there are some other ones like the Smartmike+ Bluetooth Microphone that would work well too.
Additional Activity: During this step, you will find that creating the videos is actually a lot easier than writing and publishing blog posts, so I also recommend that you write and publish 1 new review blog post per week. Review some competitor product, and recommend your focus product as the alternative. Don't forget to turn these into content videos as well.
Once you have uploaded all of your content videos to your YouTube channel, you are ready to move into Step 4.
Step 4: Duplicate Content To Facebook & LinkedIn (90 Days)
In this phase, you will be creating what is called "Influencer" Style videos and publishing them to your social profiles.
Like Google and Bing, social media utilizes an algorithm to put your content in front of individuals who might be interested in it. So even though the 'search intent' from publishing on social media sites might not be quite as high, it will help you establish yourself as the authority in your niche, by publishing Influencer style content.
In order for you to publish these types of videos you will need some basic video equipment. Like in the previous step, you will need a microphone. Go with either a Yeti Mic, or Smartmike.
However since you will be recording yourself speaking into a camera, you will need to have a video camera (a good smartphone should do fine) as well.
Additionally it will help you a lot if you invest in a teleprompter app such as "Nano-teleprompter." A lot of teleprompter apps are complete garbage, but that one seems to be the best one.
It would also help if you had some sort of Ring Light such as the one displayed to help with lighting and holding your camera/teleprompter.
In addition to creating the Influencer style videos you should also be writing and publishing 1 review post per week, and repurposing them for YouTube and your social profiles as well.
Step 5: The Battleship Method (90 Days)
This is the final push!
Did you ever play Battleship when you were a kid? The objective is to find the target spots on your opponents map where they are hiding a ship, hone in and fire their location, then sink their battleship.
The battleship method is similar to the game, but when it comes to content, you should be narrowing down the topics that are bringing you the most traffic, and then hone in on those topics. The best way to figure out what topics to write about is to look at YouTube Studio and Google Search Console. Those will tell you which content is getting the most attention, and for what keywords.
Your goal is to write and publish 80 more posts, and repurpose them over to YouTube and your social profiles. Also continue to write 1 more review posts every week, and repurpose those as well.
This one year plan is my no means easy. It takes a lot of determination and focus to pull something like this off. If you follow through with this content plan you will have 956 content pieces published in 1 year.
However, even after creating all of these content pieces there are still plenty of ways to scale your affiliate marketing business even more. Such as:
- Rinse and Repeat on another product in your niche.
- Create Your Own Funnels
- Email Marketing
- Paid Advertising
- Product Creation
Just to name a few. But with this much content put into the marketplace you should have enough income and flexibility to move whichever direction you wish to go.
