Getting Some Content

Time to watch today’s videos: Approximately 30 minutes

Additional time to complete today’s action steps: Better plan on an additional 1-3 hours, at least. This is another lesson I had to split up over a couple of days. Research and writing takes me a bit of time. I suppose once I get used to it, it will go faster.

Thirty Day Challenge Transcripts and Training are available below each video.

Find Article Content Using Market Samurai


Time to do some research for your niche. Find articles and blog posts focusing on your keyword. Use sites like,, Google blog search and their news search. Review and analyze those articles for their “wow” facts. You can use Google Notebook to organize your research.

(Google notebook may no longer be available as I add this note on 06/19/2009 – you can use your own word processor or an online service like “evernote.” Feel free to leave other ideas as comments…)

Gather enough material to write several 300 to 500 word articles for your niche. You’ll need 5 to 10 articles to use throughout the thirty day challenge.

Another source for article content is Google Reader – you can set up Google Alerts and feeds focused on your niche keywords/phrases. This is discussed in other lessons – you can search within this blog for related posts on that topic.

Here are some links to a few article sources – and their usage terms:

Ezine Articles – Ezine Articles – Terms of Service.

Article City – Article City – Terms of Use.

Go Articles – Go Articles – Guidelines.


How To Write An Article


Use the attribution method to write your 5 to 10 articles.
