Default Creating A 2,000 Word Blog Post Without Writing A Word

With all the content marketing strategies right now leading to quality article writing, excellent content plans usually involve having 2,000-3,000 word long blog posts.

But, who has the time to do just that? Creating one post that long would take you around 20 hours!

This is why a lot of companies now mostly rely on outsourcing content creation.

Check out this blog post that outlines 5 steps on how you could create a 2,000 word blog post in just 2 hours -- without even writing a word:

Have you tried outsourcing content creation? What are your experiences?

I don't agree. A quality post won't take long if it is something that really interests you. And if it is quality, it can rank for years.

Paying authors makes sense if you have a huge income from your site and the authors are very good.

Hi Carlo, it doesn't need to be a 2000-3000 words to become great content, 500 to 800 words will do and it will depend on how you write well for the related field and if it engage with the target audience.

I agree that a quality post won't take that long if it is something that really interests you. But, producing content for your blog isn't always in that mood. Sometimes, you would wish your time was spent in more critical things like strategic planning for the business.

That's true. The guide also applies to 500-800 words though. The 2000 word example is just referring to those in-depth and well-researched guides.

Your look at length of content vs number of shares was interesting. Thank you.

Thanks for pointing that out!

That's exactly why we're hitting the 2,000-3,000 word here to get those number of shares.

Not an absolute rule. But, those researches back them up.

Creating a video seems like a massive pain in the neck. Just write a brief like a normal person.

I think the point of the video was to just create one with your quick thoughts in it. This is to save time writing a detailed post -- which is the task you will delegate to the hired writer.

In the mood
is a good point. A video, off the cuff, could be a really good idea.

A pal of mine (similar work area) never gets round to writing much, but get him in the mood and he can wax lyrical in a well informed manner about all of his many interests.

When you've made a video, let us know!

When you build the correct structure of the post, you`ll see that it will not take so much time to create it. Also, outsource is not always a good idea as usually such companies do not have narrow section specialists for writing in specific niches. They also do not make any deep research. so better if you are an owner of your business in narrow specific niche - find your own writer, but not outsource.
