I found a great blog about writers’ productivity habits, and it made me think about poker writing routines. For example, the latest post was about Anthony Trollope’s writing routine. He worked every morning from 5:30am to 8:30am on his writing, before working a full time job with the postal service. His target was 250 words every 15 minutes, or 1000 words every hour. If he finished a novel during a writing session, he immediately started a new novel. That’s 3000 words per day.
Anthony Trollope wrote 49 novels in 35 years.
I understand that some of this blog’s readers don’t write their own content, but everyone reading a poker affiliate blog has work of some kind to do. What could you accomplish if you had this kind of discipline toward your work?
Let’s suppose you have a full time job, and you want to transition to a full-time poker affiliate. Writing poker content, and plenty of it,Â is the most effective way to generate search engine traffic to your site. If you write 3000 words per day every day for a year, then you should be able to finish writing 2190 pages of content in a year. That’s enough for 7 decent sized website of 300 or so pages each.
I have sites with 300 or so pages that get 1000 to 2000 visitors per day each. Even if you’re only half as successful, you can still probably count on 500 to 1000 visitors per day per site. 7 sites X 500 visitors per day = 3500 visitors per day. Suppose you make 25 cents per daily visitor to your site.Â That’s $875 a day, or $319,000 a year.
So if you don’t want to work at a full time job anymore, spend a year writing poker content every morning for 3 hours.
Do this for a little over 3 years, and you’ve got a million dollars a year in revenue.
