What Are Your Article Marketing Goals for 2011?
Published By Google+

Well, here we are at the last day of 2010 and about to launch into a whole new decade.

How did you do with your website marketing over the past year?

Did you take the 100 articles in a year challenge? How did that go?

A new year is a fresh start and a time when we can channel our motivation to improve to benefit our businesses. Now is the time to create your article marketing goals for 2011.

Here are mine:

1 – Become a better writer (More creative, better teaching illustrations, more personal)

2 – Focus more on writing high quality keyword optimised articles.

3 – Write more succinctly.

4 – Get more enjoyment out of writing.

What have you got up your sleeve for the coming year? What are you shooting for?

I’d love to hear about it in the comments…

    HI Steve…

    I still haven’t made 100 a year…but…this article just trigger a good 20 minutes of surfing your blog. It is a goldmine of information, tools and techniques for both beginners and more advanced article marketers.

    I particularly liked SEO Article Writing 101. It will be the standard that I will hold my article writing to in 2011.

    Thanks so much…Pat Wiklund

    Your article marketing goals are excellent.

    I’d say mine are pretty much the same.

    1. Write more articles on a much more regular basis.
    Specifically 10 articles per week during the first two weeks of January.
    15 articles per week during the next two weeks.
    Keep increasing by 5 articles per week
    Until I am *consistently* writing 25 articles *every* week.

    2. Write better using story elements / examples to help capture the interest of the reader and get the points across.

    3. Find a way to write articles faster with greater enjoyment. This should probably be #1 because it will be a BIG help for consistently writing 25 articles per week.

    Does anyone know of any Article Marketing Club or Forum? I’m not talking about some paid service or anything like that. Just a place where article writers hang out so we can exchange tips and maybe offer some motivation?

    Since I write well over a thousand articles a year, 100 seems modest. My goal this year is to do more writing to promote my own projects and to find enough time to finally give Submit Your Article and Article Leverage a shot.

  5. While I’ve owned several businesses over the years, I’m just starting out using article marketing. Writing has always been a bit of struggle for me – even though what eventually comes out is fairly good, the writing process takes a long time and a lot of effort for me.

    So I think my main goal for 2011 in regards to article writing would be to practice, practice, practice. My hope is that the more I write, the easier it will become, and the faster it will go. I love the idea of the “100 articles in a year”, so I’m going to take on that challenge! In 2011, I will write at least 50 articles related to the store I own (A Mother’s Haven Boutique & Educational Center), and at least 50 articles for my side businesses.

    Thanks for the inspiration! And good luck with your article writing goals! :-)

    @Rob: Hi Rob, Glad to hear you are such a prolific writer and that you are thinking about trying

    A word of caution though–The 100 article goal is for people who are submitting automatically. When you submit automatically, you do not need to (and should not) submit as many articles as when submitting manually. That is one of the many perks of doing automatic submissions, because you get much more bang for your buck, so to speak.

    So, please don’t try to submit 1,000 article when submitting automatically! :) You will not like your results…

    Rather, just submit a modest amount–about 8 articles a month per website you are marketing (you can market as many sites as you like). That will get you to about 100 articles a year. Submitting more than that when doing automatic submissions can be detrimental to your article marketing campaign.

    Try doing auto-submissions and submitting fewer articles. Imagine all the free time you’ll have… ;)

    Hope that helps!

    @Teresa Gonczy: Hi Teresa,

    Yes, there is really no getting around it–practice is what helps a writer get better! Best of luck to you–I’m cheering you on in your goals!

    @Brad: Hi Brad,

    It’s great to set goals, and it sounds like you are serious about taking things up a few notches with your article marketing.

    A couple suggestions–consider using an automatic article submission service like You will save time and increase your effectiveness. When you submit automatically, you can drastically cut down on the articles you create (making it much easier to stick with your marketing campaign).

    With, all you need to do is submit 8 articles a month per website–that breaks down to 2 articles a week.

    There is no need to write 25 articles a week if you use an automatic submission service.

    If you are submitting manually though, you will need to submit tons of articles to see results.

    Yes, it costs money to use a service like, but it also costs you money to spend time writing so many articles, right? Your time is worth money. Just something to think about…
