Do you find yourself constantly struggling with your blog posts? In this article, I will show you an effective plan you can follow and this will work great for any topic of your choice.

In this post, I will be sharing with you the result of my research. I hope you find some value in it.

Before you write a word of your blog post, here are a few things you want to consider doing first…

How to do fast keyword research with the alphabet soup technique

  • Save

When it comes to keyword research, people have different approaches and strategies depending on what works for them. Recently, I got an opportunity to learn about the “soup” technique from affiliate marketing training.

The process of the soup technique for keyword research is basically using the Google search bar to organically suggest key phrases as you type in words. As you type in the first word, google is going to start giving you other related ideas based on the next alphabet.

This isn’t guesswork. these suggestions are based on common phrases other people are searching globally. It is incredibly helpful and safe in my opinion.

Now, I am not against the use of a keyword research tool. However, I think that some of them are overrated. What I am saying is that you don’t necessarily need to have a keyword research tool if you can’t afford it yet. I use jaaxy, one of the world’s most advanced keyword planners. The alphabet soup technique has been integrated into Jaaxy. You do have the liberty to do 30 searches for free.

Write the first paragraph and capture your keyword in it

You want to include your keyword in the first paragraph, make sure it is done the most natural way possible because the aim is not to stuff your article with keywords. At the end of the day, it is not about keywords. It’s about providing your readers with great value and experience.

For example, my title for this article is “how to write a blog post fast” Then for my first paragraph, I went on to write… It’s 12-midnight sitting on my desk wondering “how to write a blog post fast” without losing quality in my article.

This is not only giving you the beginning of a clean template to work with, but it also optimizes your blog post for search engines. I encourage you to try it out.

Write the answer paragraph after your first line

This paragraph should be very short. Maybe about 2 to 4 lines of giving a direct answer to the topic or keyword. It’s a way to quickly summarize your answer in bold text. This technique gives you the potential to win rich snippets on Google.

Create a hit-list of articles for your blog post

Creating a hit-list of articles to write gives you a constructive guide and a consistent flow.

Find Images that complement your topic

I usually sort out images after keyword research because I realize that finding images before writing really works best for me instead of the other way round.

There are websites where you can easily grab quality images for free. I will also suggest that you frequently select images that complement your niche and save them on your hard drive, that way, you save time whenever you actually need them for any blog post.

Write 5 – 6 subheadings from your keyword

Your sub-headings would form the structure and further develop the entire topic and the particular keyword that you are working with. For example, your topic is (how do you make money from affiliate marketing?)

  • Sub-heading #1 What is affiliate marketing?
  • Sub-heading #2 Who is affiliate marketing for?
  • Sub-heading #3 How do you join an affiliate marketing program?
  • Sub-heading #4 How do you promote affiliate products?
  • Sub-heading #5 What are the challenges of affiliate marketing?
  • Sub-heading #6 What are the high ticket affiliate programs?
  • Sub-heading #7 Where can I find affiliate marketing training?

You want to take some time and really write extensively on the above-listed topics. Whatever those are for you, you want to elaborate and give helpful details to those subheadings.

Now, you rarely find a very short article that ranks on #1 spot in Google. As a matter of fact, Backlinko carried out research on the performance of long and short-form blog posts and articles.

They discovered that the average word count of a blog post that rank #1 on google is 1980 words with lots of social shares. A longer article or blog post is always going to outperform a short one.

The point I am trying to make is that you do need to give decent volume to your post with due attention to high quality as opposed to quantity.

Google Docs

This tool will help you write your ideas in plain text. All you need to do is to speak and it will simply print your words. However, you need to get in there and clean it up though. As a matter of fact, I tried out this technique on this particular blog post. My opinion… It really does save time. I recommend you give it a try.

  • Log into your Google account
  • Select tools from the menu at the top
  • Select voice typing from the drop-down and the red mic icon will appear the right side of the page.
  • To start recording, click on that red mic icon.

Spin Rewriter

This tool is highly intuitive. It serves multiple purposes, but for the sake of this post, I’ll focus on how it facilitates your ability to write faster. Spin Writer, as the name implies, can spin articles. It is also an intelligent software, designed to comprehend various accents and apply punctuations where necessary. I have never seen anything like it before. For this purpose I highly recommend you check it out.

Do research for your blog post

When you research your topic, you gather facts and evidence from multiple sources to draw up a conclusion of your own. Your judgment of it all is usually based on your filters as a unique individual.

When in doubt whether your blog post is relevant, remember that you are unique and so is your content. It will resonate with whom it was designed for. Uncertainty is a time-waster.

Don’t be a perfectionist writing your article

This probably sounds a bit redundant, but very important at the same time. I find myself struggling with this from time to time.

Do not get caught up in trying to cross every “T” and dot every “I”. You first want to get it all out of your spine no matter how messy it is. You can always edit and clean up your article later. This is another huge time saver.

Use Technology to write your blog post fast

I am shamelessly a lazy writer. I know there are a lot of bloggers like me out there who find writing stressful. And it is quite consoling to guess – not like I know for sure that I am not alone in this.

There is a range of tools you can use to cut the time spent on writing your blog post in half.

Some of those tools are premium and others free to use.

At the end of the day, there is really no hard and fast rule on how you should template your workflow when it comes to blogging. It is absolutely important to find what works for you. The end game is to get results and save time.

In conclusion, what strategies would you rather apply? Ensure to leave your thoughts in the comments.

    Hi,

    It was a really clear article from start to finish. I understood the purpose, goal and information being presented. The suggestions seemed to be in line with recommendations for writing blog posts fast, and I liked the focus on quality rather than quantity.

    The one comment I would make is that I felt the information on Spin Rewriter and google docs was too short, and I feel like I would need to go elsewhere to research the tool and how it works, potentially losing you the click you need to the affiliate link. Maybe you could do an in depth review of spin writer and its features and link that article into this article and then include the affiliate links in there?

    Otherwise I found it a useful read.

    Thanks!

      Zak, thank you so much for your great contribution to the subject. It was intentional not to write much about Spin Rewriter because I don’t want to derail from the focus and purpose of this particular article. As a matter of fact, I am already writing a more comprehensive blog post. 

      it will be a compilation of all the tools that I use building business online and all relevant links will be embedded on this post for reference. I guess this would be in line with your suggestion in the second paragraph. 

      Thanks for the read

    Thank you so much for your ideas to write blog posts faster. I am constantly struggling with consistency in getting blog posts published due to time constraints. 

    I have heard of others using talk to text tools in the past but I have never tried one myself. Now is as good a time as any! Do you know of any other talk to text tools besides Google Docs? 

    The Spin Rewriter tool also looks impressive. This could save me loads of time in the long run. I can’t wait to try it. Is this a free tool?

    I am ecstatic I ran across your site. I will bookmark it and return for more great tips and suggestions. Thanks again!

      Hey Shannon,

      Lol… I am probably correct if I say most bloggers struggle with consistency in blogging. 

      Talk to text is really cool. Another Talk to Text I’ll recommend is your smartphone keypad talk feature. Simply download a word processor app on your phone. open it up. that should automatically bring up your keypad. look at the right corner of your the spacebar, there you find the “mic icon” simply press and start talking while the word processor app is still open. 

      Whenever you are ready for the Spin Rewriter it will be here.  thanks for reading.

    I think not being a perfectionist might the most important point of all because it’s in our blood to be a perfectionist and give the best at what we do when we’re serious about anything. I too have found myself guilty of spending weeks to edit and post until I realize that it doesn’t have to be perfect, we just need to post it and make progress.

      I completely agree with you. It is never going to be perfect. that’s the reason why one needs to go back to these posts at intervals to review and update them. Thanks for your contribution.
