1. A High Quality Environment Produces High Quality Content
The first you should do in these 6 steps to writing high quality content is get somewhere comfortable where there is less stress. Speaking of stressed, your surroundings, your environment, and the overall setting that you work in can play a major role in getting clear on what you want to put down as your goals, your reasons why, and your general content on your website or blog.
It took me a long time to finally admit that where I was doing my work was the worst thing for any business and made a change. The more secluded the better… and the better your relatives, loved ones, roommates, kids, everyone understands that that is your space and when you are in that space, you are to be left alone, then the faster you will progress. Trust me on this one. It will help tremendously.
2. Ways To Avoid Distraction
Before we even think about creating our masterpiece full of high quality content, we have a bit of house-cleaning to do about ways to avoid distraction during this whole process. There are many tricks you can pull to help with the comfortability of your workspace and your work environment in general, but when it comes down to really needing to avoid distractions, sometimes you just have to put your foot down. For avoiding distractions while you write, here are some basic rules to follow that should help:
- Put away everything that sits between you and the computer screen except for a notepad or spiral and a pencil.
- All you need within your workspace while brainstorming for your article is something to take notes with.
- Literally take your phone and put it in the other room if you have to.
- If you are using your phone to do your research, then turn on “Do Not Disturb” and make sure that is the only thing besides paper and pencil you have in front of you.
- Put all devices on airplane mode or “do not disturb” setting. Get serious about not wanting to be distracted for the whole time you are researching.
- Tell everyone you need about one hour of peace and quiet and you’ll buy them ice cream afterwards. Pay them if you have to, just make sure they know not to disturb you.
- Do whatever you have to do to be able to focus on this one thing. If you can do this, then you can do it with other projects and agendas as well, the more important and tedious ones… and they will happen, but you’ll be ready.
- Make it a point to explain to everyone and to yourself that you cannot work unless these things are done before you can move on. Make this part of your routine to deliberately make time to cut out distractions. This is important. This should be part of your daily must-dos.
- Conquer this part of your day and the rest of the daily journey will turn out a progressive one.
So, now that you have a comfortable workspace clear of distractions and can move forward confidently not thinking about who’s going to disrupt your process next, you can consider this a practice run. You have to keep redoing this repetitively until you get it right. Heck, you might have 10 articles written by the time you sacrifice all distractions, texts, calls, alarms, dings, dogs barking, open windows, loud vacuums, needy neighbors, favorite shows, “what’s for dinner?”, and a few “you’ve got mail”(s) if you’re old school, but we do what it takes, right? We must do what it takes to weed out distractions before hand, or we are pretty much guaranteed to be right in the middle of some great content and… Bam! You’re thrown off course.
That means we must try to eliminate and prevent any and all distractions that could pop up right in the middle of you diving deep and getting on a roll with your writing. Prevention is key because we both know that once you have that momentum, it can be really frustrating when you have to stop for something simple and irrelevant to the task at hand only to forget where you were… lose your spot, your train of thought, or maybe even just call it a day and quit. Not this time.
3. Target Of Audience
You want to get a clear understanding of WHO you are writing to. Your target of audience should be a crystal-clear description of what kind of person is looking for what you are offering. So, before you go diving into what you’re going to write about, you MUST be absolutely clear on who it is you are going to be writing to and who you are going to be helping. After all, if you plan on ranking your article on the first page of Google for any keywords, you need to remember that this is the whole purpose of Google, to help people find what they are searching for. If you provide the best help for someone looking for assistance for a particular topic, then you can bet that Google will take full responsibility for showing them your article because it makes their job easier.
Provide the best help for someone by giving your target audience everything they could ask for about a topic and Google will return the favor by giving you a better ranking. It’s a win-win-win when you provide high-quality, original, and thorough content. Google will love you for it and so will your readers.
So, one of the best ways to find your super-targeted audience is well, Google… “Google Instant” to be exact. Here’s how you use Google search to your advantage… with a little bit of side flavor of my own I’ll throw in.
Go to Google Trends to find exactly what is hot right now within your niche. Here’s the link.
Once you get there, type in your niche. Today, we’ll type in one of my favorite topics in the make money niche, “affiliate marketing”. Then you’ll want scroll down past the regional demographics and look over on the right under “Related Queries” and no matter what is, write down the first 3 keywords or keyword phrases Google tells you are breaking out and trending. In this case we’re using here, the most trending keywords for “affiliate marketing” are “affiliate marketing for dummies”, “high ticket affiliate marketing”, and “how does affiliate marketing work”.
So now that we have the three currently most searched for phrases on our topic, we can start to get an idea of WHO it is we are going to be writing to about our topic and what keywords we will be implementing into our article. Again, in this case, it is obvious that we will be writing to people interested in affiliate marketing and are trying to learn how it works, especially “high-ticket” affiliate marketing, and apparently for dummies. This more than likely is referring to the book, “Affiliate Marketing for Dummies”, but we will just assume that people are searching for this title because they are beginners and need some simple instructions or a step-by-step guide perhaps.
Put them all together to come up with your best customer. In our case, our best customer is someone who is a beginner in the make money online niche and wants to learn how high-ticket affiliate marketing works in the simplest way possible.
4. Use Targeted Keywords To Fill Your Best Customer’s Needs
Now, here is the trick to creating an awesome keyword targeted title for the article you’ll be directing your audience to. You need to use a keyword tool that tells you the exact keyword that is getting the most amount of traffic with the least amount of competition, but at the same time, is talking straight to your best customer who has the desire and the need to solve their problem that you have the solution for.
The best and easiest tool to use, in many opinions of professional internet marketers today, would be the Jaaxy keyword tool. We simply type in the basic thing our customer wants, which is “high ticket affiliate marketing” and Jaaxy will give us the most searched, most relevant keywords plus tell us which ones we can easily rank for.
As you’ll see in the image below, it has already given us plenty of keywords to choose from. We want the most traffic but we also need our competition to be below 300. So, if we can find a few keywords that match our customer, makes sense phonically, and fits our criteria… then it’s just fill in the blanks to a ranking article. I’ve embedded an image of our Jaaxy search below as well as a Jaaxy widget for you to give it a try yourself. Pretty cool, huh?
5. Tell Google What You Have, Who It’s For, and How It Will HELP
So, we’ve come pretty far in our “high quality content” journey with no distractions in our super-focused environment. We’ve found out who our best customer is and exactly what problem or need they have that requires a solution. We’ve researched and found the best keywords that are laser-targeted and directed toward our customer’s solution. We have a few subject lines to use that have lots of traffic going to them with little competition. Now what?
Now, we put it all together… but guess what. This is the fun part and is actually the easiest. The hard part is over. Now, we just fill in the blanks… Here’s how.
Do you remember when we found out WHO our audience was and what they wanted? Okay, remember when we found the best keywords to give it to them? Okay, that keyword, that ONE keyword that tells Google what we have and who it is for… is our title. It’s the best title for Google to say, “Hey, this person is that… and they are looking for that… so I will show them that.” Then all we have to do is, well, just that. Our first paragraph is basically that and it really is that simple. Tell them what you have, what it does, and who it is for. Easy, right?
Now, before you start getting overwhelmed again, just hear me out. You are on step 5. You’re almost done with the article. You’ve already done what most people refuse to do or in most cases come up with excuses not to do and end up procrastinating on and end up never writing the article or worse, spit one out that doesn’t do anyone any good and just wastes their time only adding to their frustration. You’ve done the work. Now, we get to have fun and enjoy this part of creating a business… unless of course you enjoyed all of that, then I applaud you. You’ve got spirit.
I’ll shut up now and like I said earlier, I’ll keep it simple right here because yes, you are after all writing an article that is soon to be ranked on Google. Are you ready? Here goes…
That’s it. I’ve already told you how to complete this project. See. I told you you could do it! We did all of that and you didn’t realize that you had already written your article. Okay, yeah there’s a few holes you need to fill in and some t’s to cross, some i’s to dot, but you are pretty much done. You have your title: How Does High Ticket Affiliate Marketing Work for Beginners. You have your 3 to 5 H3 subject lines… which are the other best keywords that Jaaxy gave you based on Google’s suggestions… and everything in between is super easy as well. Here’s a hint… When you were doing research on Google Trends, hop one tab over and put those keywords in Google search.
In our case with “affiliate marketing”, our first would have been “affiliate marketing for dummies”. So, we would put that into Google search. Now just read the first 3 to 5 excerpts on page one and take some notes. Those notes are going to be your content. Just use your own words and give credit where it’s due. You’ll see that the more you learn about a certain topic and read highlights here and there, just how easy it is for everything to click together and spill out onto the paper or the notepad for you.
6. Stop over-complicating everything and keep your high quality content simple.
Just do that for however many paragraphs you would like in your high quality content filled article. Again, in this case we would decide how many steps we’d like to offer our customer to learn about high ticket affiliate marketing and where they can go to get started. This would be a perfect opportunity to introduce them to a high-ticket affiliate offer you have in mind. A great direction to point them to would be a high-ticket affiliate offer that actually teaches them, as a beginner, how to build a business with high-ticket offers so you’re not only showing the beginners how it works, but leading them to one that shows them that using them makes a lot of money and how they can to. So, your good high-quality content served with a call-to-action at the end giving them an example of what they came for in the first place is exactly what Google wants their readers to experience.
I know you’ve gotten some great value out of reading this and I can’t wait to read and hear about your great success when you put together that awesome article for whatever it may be that your best customer wants. You see, writing articles isn’t always just about “what am I going to write”. It’s almost always about what kinds of interesting things are people looking for currently and what is it that I am going to learn today. My suggestion? Be open to everything in this new digital world. There are some interesting people out there. You never know what you’ll get to research. Just have an open mind, an open heart, stay focused, be consistent and patient, and most of all… just breathe, fill in the blanks and give people what they want and desire so at the end of the day, you can get what you want as well.
And that’s to your great success building a business online. Thank you for reading. Now, clean off that desk and get started creating that awesome super high quality content article of yours that I know is going to be amazing. I’ll talk to you soon.
