This time I’m going all in.
At least this time I know I’m going to get the job done.
And yet, it may actually happen with less effort.
Less floundering; more results.
The last two required a lot more “figuring it out.” For this one, it’s mostly figured out.
Now all that’s left is to set it up and let it run.
The Challenge to End All Challenges
The last two were started on whims.
This one has been brewing. It has planning and preparation where the others only had passion. Willpower and problem solving got me the results before. But it is habits and rituals that will get me over the hump.
Sure, there is still some willpower and problem solving involved here. But they’ve been crystallized into formulas others can follow.
Now, I’m going to get major gains.
By the end of September 2019, I had three new pages per week scheduled on ZachBradshaw.com. This time around, I expect I’ll be able to say something similar by July. Greensboro SEO Pro won’t be far behind. At this point, I don’t have any predictions for my copywriting company, work from home site, or any of my other brands. But don’t count them out.
It could be that from here on, there may never be another day where Zach Bradshaw isn’t snatching another small piece of the Internet to his pie.
Hmmm. I like the sound of that.
First things first though.
If you’ve been here before, you probably know I like to break life down into quarters.
For my 2020 Content Challenge though, I’ll lock in my gameplan one quarter at a time. I’m not going to fall into the same traps as my original 365 Day Content Challenge or my Monthly Personal Growth Updates. This time, I’ll review and adjust as the game continues instead of putting myself up to some ill-conceived parameters with no end in sight.
I’ll also start focusing a bit more on what gets published; the when has become inevitable.
It’s got me SO pumped for January 2020.
This quarter I’ve got one major focus:
Get six months of posts scheduled on the GSP marketing blog.
We have a ton of systems to turn into walkthrough posts.
Some will be long. Others will be short. Some will be simple how to’s. Others will be in-depth and theoretical. Some will be for humans. Others will be for algorithms.
Almost all of them will contribute to our DIY SEO library.
This means massive gains for internal training and client consulting.
The only sub-focus:
Big topics in my life.
Plus, there is a master plan.
SEO supports GSP.com.
That’s kind of obvious.
For this quarter though, it’s simply about getting the structure built out so I can build expertise.
By the end of this quarter, I may have 100+ new Favorites scheduled. I’ll also be pushing out some other posts over the course of January and February. Come March, I might be ready to start putting real content on my shell pages.
I’m rubbing my hands together all of this.
Here’s how it looks in my Bullet Journal:
This is a first time layout but it seems perfect for the task. It could probably use a tweak or two but I can worry about that a year from now. As for Q2, I’ll worry about that in March. Everything beyond the first quarter is tentative at this point.
I’ll use this for my monthly and weekly planning.
And because this is something like an SEO hub post (😉), I’ll keep my progress updated below.
