Exactly five years ago I challenged myself to write one hundred articles in one hundred days. I did this because I had come online the year before and soon realized that I would need to do lots of writing in order to be successful with my new business venture. I had been writing during that first year, but it was sporadic and the quality was quite mediocre. I needed to kick it up a notch so that the writing would come more easily and I could get my message out to the world. That’s when I decided to challenge myself. It didn’t take me a hundred days to write those 100 articles; they were all written and published by the end of 78 days. It was a wonderful feeling and I credit that self-imposed challenge with turning me into a writer.
Article marketing has been very good to me over these last five years. I now have more than sixteen hundred articles published on the major article directories, which has built my list with targeted prospects and given my sites a higher ranking on Google and the other search engines. I have also repurposed this content into a variety of formats, including short reports, audio recordings, and several books, both paperback and on Kindle.
I teach a very simple method for writing articles that get results. I call this technique the 5 Paragraph Model™ and you can read about how to do it in this post I wrote on article marketing strategies. It works for me, as well as the hundreds of people who have now gone through my training on this topic.
To celebrate my five years of article writing and marketing I am challenging myself to write another hundred articles over the next three months. I find that these challenges are always an excellent way to get everyone involved. Will you join me for this challenge? How may I help you to write more articles that will build your online business quickly?
