Haha – sorry… Maybe it’s just my personal opinion that writing content is boring… 🙂
Anyways, it’s been a quiet week over here for the Challenge participants. As part of Week 3 of the 2011 Community Marketing Challenge, the participants have been busy adding content to our websites. It’s not as fun or glamorous as building the sites in the first place, so I apologize that we don’t have tons of exciting stuff to update you on.
But just because something isn’t exciting doesn’t mean it isn’t important. Some of the questions we’ve been grappling with this week include:
- Should you write your web content or outsource it?
- If you outsource your content, how do you choose a writer and make sure his/her work is good?
- How much content should you add?
- How should you structure your content?
- Where should you add monetization on your niche sites?
To learn more about how each of us has answered these questions, check out our update posts below!
Sarah Russell – Most of my work this week has been done on autopilot. Check out my most recent video update to find out why I’ve decided to avoid overtly monetizing my base content.
Dan McConnell – Dan has an exciting new theme and has made progress on one of his biggest roadblocks. Read his update for more details on how he’s progressing with his drill miter saw (sorry Dan!) website.
Jon Alford – Jon has decided to go ahead with his current theme, and has found a great way of integrating keywords into main categories and fleshing out a complete site. Personally, I can’t wait to see how his final site turns out!
Ben Donahower – Ben and I have both been struggling with busy schedules this week, so I’m glad to see that he was able to get some good content up onto his site. Click in to see what he’s been working on.
Dustin Mason – Like the rest of us, Dustin’s been a little crunched for time lately, but that doesn’t mean his work isn’t getting done! Read on to find out what he’s been up to.
