Planning Pays Big Dividends
Without knowing exactly where you want to go, how can you possibly expect to end up exactly where you want to be without a map or plan that will allow you to get where you want to be. Planning will also allow you to expend the least amount of time, effort and for some, even money to get there.
Once your system is set up properly, you’re comfortable with it and you have made a couple of test runs, it shouldn’t take you more than an hour to have everything you need in place to start capitalizing on a hot trend project.
Your hour will follow this abbreviated time line:
- 20 minutes: Researching Trends for viability
- 10 minutes: Locate keyword heavy copy
- 10 Minutes: Set up your free blog
- 10 Minutes: Monetize your blog
- 20 Minutes: Promote your blog through back links
Obviously this timeline is a approximation and some steps will take a little longer and some a shorter amount of time. There are a number of variables that will come into play with each hot trend you decide you might profit from.
Just as obviously, in the beginning you will certainly take more than an hour to feed a hot trend into your system, but based on my experience I believe you can get your hot trends into your system in about and hour by the time you have done 4 or 5 hot trends. Set yourself a goal of being able to do it in an hour. If you always take longer, say an hour and a half or even two hours, you can still see a profitable return for your time spent.
One of the variables that will have a definite affect on your project completion time is the type of trend it is and whether or not you incorporate some of the optional or alternate promotion methods or strategies. That will depend largely on what you estimate the potential life of a hot trend to be.
Regardless of whether your research to deployment takes you one hour or more, having the tools in place to organize your system in one place will help you to cover the necessary steps in as little time as possible.
