Is it really possible to write a large post in just five minutes?
You bet it is.
Here is the secret.
The Answer: Collective Interviews
Here is what you do.
Step 1: Create the following email message:
I’m writing a post on the [Current Industry Trend].
I’d like to get some input on the subject from some of the smartest people in the industry. I’m reaching out to a few contacts and plan on posting the collective responses as a post for readers to see.
If you’re interested in having your response shared with our readers then please share about 200 words on what you think this [Current Industry Trend] means to readers.
I’d love to hear your thoughts.
Thanks ahead of time and I’ll share the post with you once it’s published.
Step 2: Send The Email To 10 Industry Contacts
Send it out to your contacts. They could be competitors that you’re in touch with or they could be contacts in complementary businesses. It’s a win-win for everyone involved. You get a great post and the people you contact get exposure to a new audience, your blogging audience.
Step 3: Publish The Article, Ask Everyone To Share It
Now it’s time to really supercharge the post.
It shouldn’t take you more than 5 minutes to copy that email template and send it out to 10 people. It’s 10 separate emails, but real easy to copy and pate the message. You only have to change a few things.
Then once you get the responses back simply copy and paste them in a post on your blog. Add names, titles and websites links for the 10 people involved.
Publish the post.
But you’re not done quite yet.
Once the post is published, reach out again to each of the 10 people and send them the link. In that email ask each person to share the post with their social followings.
Now you get exposure to 10 different audiences for your blog.
Talk about a winning post.
And it only took about 5 minutes to create.
