2 Months Worth of Blog Posts in 1 Week – A Marketing Plan

Take the stress out of planning your weekly blog posts. Here's how to plan out your next 8 blog posts... in 1 week max!

If you run a blog, things can get pretty stressful… and fast.

I used to slam out one blog post a week and spend the week before tying up every little loose end and jumping from one task to another.

Then, I found out there’s another way! In the video below, I walk you through a system I use to plan and automate 2 months worth of blog posts in 1 week.

Major stress reliever!

Step 01) Determine what it takes from start to finish

Every blog is set up differently, so your blog post checklist will look different from mine. Figure out the steps you need to take in order to start and finish your blog posts. Write those steps down.  Combine and organize the steps until it’s a list of 6-7 steps. That is your blog post checklist.

Step 02) and… GO!

Begin with step one on day one! In the video above, my first step was ‘SEO and edit snippet preview’.  For example, if your first step is ‘research with google keyword planner’, complete that step for all of the blog posts you have planned.  Do this on day one, then stop.

Come back on day two. If the next step in your blog post checklist is to ‘write the rough draft of blog post copy’ write the rough drafts for all of the blog posts on day two. Then save them, click out and come back tomorrow.

Come back on day three and comeplete step three… and so forth.

This is called batch work; and it’s absolute gold.

Step 03) Keep going until the end of the week

Continue this batch work process until you’ve completed all of your steps within the checklist for each of your planned blog posts.

Why does batch work, work?

Batch work is a fantastic method for managing your time more efficiently.  When you have a repetitive task (like blogging) it’s best to create a checklist for it. That way, you are working on the same single step, each day to complete those tasks.

Also, once you’re in the zone of, doing keyword research for example, you may as well do keyword research for a ton of blog posts instead of just one!

Batch work maximizes your time, efficiency and clarity of mind. It’s an integrative part of any marketing plan.
