How do you manufacture ideas out of thin air? There are many ways to do this and many free resources you can leverage online to get content ideas and to keep in the "know" of your respective industry.
In this lesson, we are going to be walking through some of these techniques. We are going to be using some FREE Google tools, "how to" websites, and "question & answer" websites.
Before we get going, I have created a video walking you through the strategies outlined in this lesson.
Task 1: Set-up at least 5 Google Alerts
Every day millions of pages of brand new content and news are getting indexed into Google. We are going to capitalize on this information by creating "alerts" on specific keywords related to our websites using Google Alerts. This is the ultimate way to stay in the "know" of this niche and it will give you a lot of ideas on a daily basis...delivered directly to your email.
If you want to be an authority in this niche, you should be on top of things. To do this you are going to want to use Google alerts.
==> Access Google Alerts
This is going go give you writing ideas each and every day (you will not be able to get to all of them) and it will also give you ideas on new products coming on and also reviews that people have of certain products in the niche. You can leverage all of this.
Here are some example Alerts that I suggest you set-up, however you can create as many different alerts as you want.
internet marketing + new product
affiliate marketing + launch
wealthy affiliate review
make money online
work from home
First to market, reaps the benefits. If you can take advantage of news when it is fresh of the press, you can definitely get the top rankings in Google and retain rankings. Your task is to create 5 Google Alerts.
Task 2: Use Q & A Sites to Drum up 15 Questions People are Asking
Some popular sites and discussion points. Take a question within WA and elaborate on it on your site. Questions you see every day in WA, questions you find online.
Here are some Q & A sites that will work great for you.
Perform searches based on "themes/categories" that you have on your site or that you have within your list. This will give you a lot of ideas of what people are asking within the industry and provide you with some "how to" insight as well.
Make sure that you create a list of the ideas and concepts you come up with. I usually create a master document with all of my ideas and then I start writing them out.
You need to continually fuel your content with a stream of ideas. Those that blog regularly (daily) are those that get traffic and those that are going to build authority sites. I want you to remember this because I know that people tend to look too short term when in reality, all the hard work you do now is going to add up and lead to a lot of success as we move forward.
Task 3: Finish up on any "loose ends"
This is the last lesson of the first phase of the Bootcamp. You should give yourself a full 10 day break until the next phase starts, but this does not mean you should stop working on your site. Keep building out your pages/posts, beautifying your existing pages, sharing WA content through your affiliate links, inviting friends and family to join WA (through your affiliate links), create NEW posts...basically just keep working at it.
Whatever you like. In 10 days my site is going to be built out much more and look different. You should do the same. Some awesome training coming up in phase 2 of the Affiliate Bootcamp. Congrats on your hard work thus far, you deserve a break and definitely take some time to reward yourself for your work thus far!
The ultimate reward is not that far away...a successful affiliate website! Enjoy your short hiatus!
When you are done taking your break or if you want to move right into the next phase, you can ACCESS PHASE 2 HERE!
