Article Marketing Strategies: Creating an Article Topic Schedule for the Year
Published By Google+

Creating an article topic schedule for the year can really make your writing process easier.

This may seem like an awfully big undertaking, considering that most of us are writing at least 8 articles a month. Consider it some consolation that we’re already into March, so we don’t need to include those first few months in the schedule!

I’m doing this “class schedule” as one of my article marketing strategies–as I was telling you last time, I stumbled upon an extremely organized business (a local nursery) that had formulated a class schedule for the entire year.

I thought, “Wouldn’t it be great if I were that organized? That would certainly make writing articles easier if I already had my topics planned out.”

Developing A Class Schedule

We’re just taking things one step at a time with the ultimate goal of having a “class schedule” (considering each article to be a “class”) for the rest of the year.

Last time we decided what types of articles we would cover for certain parts of the year. This time we’ll get more specific and actually think of article topics.

I’m using myself as an example here, but you will adapt to suit your own needs.

I write 8 articles a month. Here are the articles ideas I’ve come up with for next month:

It’s hard to hit the target when you don’t even know which direction to aim. Read this article to find out the 5 ultimate goals you should be shooting for when doing article marketing.

Your Homework:

See, now I have April done.

To be honest I was dreading coming up with this schedule of “class topics” (article ideas), but it really only took me an hour or so. When I think about how much time and mental anguish that will save me next month when I sit down to write, I’m so happy I did this.

Now, all I need to do is the other 8 months…doh!

Will you try this?

I know it seems like a pain right now, but it will definitely make your article writing easier to pre-decide your article topics, come up with a title and a short description (which can also be used as an opening paragraph).

At the very least, create an article topic schedule for next month, then see if you want to do the other months.

  1. Very good advice. I often feel stumped when coming up with topics and resort to getting ideas from article submission sites and using their title suggestion tools. The trick is to write down the topics as they come to mind so you don’t forget them.

    Thank You for the great advice. Writing down topic so that you wont forget helps. A schedule is always a good thing.

    Thanks Again


  3. Definitely a great way to work… it’s just finding the discipline. :)

    I am on it. I was just having this thought last night as a matter of fact. I get almost all my good ideas in the shower. Were you in the shower too? (:


  5. Ok. You got me. I just finished up scheduling mastermind team meetings for the entire year…while I am at it I can also create a schedule for articles. I think I will take your advice though, and start with April. Keep the great information coming!


  6. Thanks for sharing this Steve. I’ve done this for the month of March and I find that it does take the pressure off when trying to write. I’m working on April’s schedule now. It feels really good to be ahead of schedule.


  7. Steve thanks for the schedule! You information is always amazing! I appreciate it

    A very good idea is to look at the top ten non-fiction bestsellers at Amazon, analyze their key ‘media triggers – the underlying pull that gets folk to buy them – then adapt that angle for an article.

    Example: one’s original draft ‘How to Breed Frogs in Your Kitchen’ (boring) becomes ‘The Big Money Weight-Loss Diet Plan – What Top Frogs Don’t Want You to Know’. An alternative is {Ophra Winfrey’s|Any Other Celebrity’s} Frog Breeding {Fast Money|Success} Secret’.

    It never fails me…
