Content is one of the greatest vehicles for delivering a marketing message because it doesn’t stress for a sale yet puts readers into an emotional mindset that happens to increase their acceptance of your message.
The only problem with content creation is that it takes time – time you may not readily have. Don’t worry because I’ve got you covered. In the next five steps, you’ll learn how to rapidly create content for your CPA marketing business so more time can go toward the things you enjoy.
Step 1: Brainstorming
The greater amount of time you put into the planning stage of your writing, the better outcome. To begin, spend roughly five minutes thinking about the topic you wish to write about. During this time, write down every idea that pops into your brain into a spreadsheet which can be used at a later date.
Once you’ve solidified your topic …
Step 2: Outlining
Outlining will allow you to easily knock down an article because it breaks the work into smaller chunks.
- A list post can be divided into the individual items
- A full tutorial post can be broken up by headlines
- An interview just needs the main questions
Whichever type of article you’ll be creating, outline it along the same lines as a novel with individual “chapters”.
When it comes time to write …
Step 3: Free Writing
Write with an open, clear, flowing mind. Don’t worry about getting everything correct with the first pass through. In essence, write exactly what pops into your head about your topic. Not only does free writing allow you to inject personality into the article but it will come together far more rapidly because you’re getting the words onto the screen without constant interruption.
After you’ve done the main draft, you can always go back to the work to include links, quotations, additional resources, and more.

Step 4: Quick Editing
The goal of your article, for CPA marketing purposes, is to create a conversion. While editing, it’s important to understand where your offer will be placed so your reader can easily discover it.
Editing the document only really needs:
- Adding stylization to the body content such as bolding important items
- Ensuring that the flow of your article will keep the reader engaged
- Avoiding paragraphs that may end with a widow that breaks the readers’ concentration
The editing process will get easier in time once you get a feel for your writing style and command of your language.
Step 5: Solid Publication
The article should be scheduled at a time when it’s most likely to be read or be placed in front of the appropriate community if you’re using the piece for guest posting purposes.
Generally, the best time to publish a fresh article is earlier in the week, during the morning which will allow people to dig into your content when their energy is up and attention at a maximum. For guest posting purposes, it’s important to have an idea of the community and website you’re publishing to so your message is loud, clear, and appropriate for the readers.
In all, just make sure that the article makes sense and delivers some form of value to your community. Giving the community value, while using the piece as a vehicle for your CPA promotions, will ensure that your content performs at the best of its abilities to convert and earn you money.
Using this process, you will be able to create fresh articles, for your website, in about 15 – 20 minutes! With just a solid hour of writing, you could have enough fresh content created for the entire week. How’s that for effective content and CPA marketing?
