Content Promotion Blueprint Process
Create an ongoing cycle of content promotion using this simple blueprint.

Publish Content

Begin by setting up a content publishing schedule to get new content published on a regular basis. This can be weekly, fortnightly, monthly, and/or a combination of these, plus one-time announcements and broadcasts.

The important thing is to make sure that you are publishing new content on a regular basis. This will help you maintain visibility in the search engines and mindshare with your target audience.

See the previous lessons if you need help with this step.

Additionally, you should have already subscribed to our Infinite Web Content Creation course. This will help you keep coming up with endless ideas for new content.

Automate Marketing

This step requires configuring a number of automation processes. You can do this yourself following the tutorials provided below or contact your website developer for help setting these up:

WordPress Traffic Automation

Grow Traffic

  • Social Media – Posting an excerpt of your post to social media networks with links pointing back to the original post published on your site.
  • Email Marketing & List Building – Sending newsletters, updates, announcements, tips, email lessons, etc. to your subscribers.
  • Content Marketing – Using different types of content to reach new audiences and drive traffic to your website.

  • and more.

Analyze Results

It’s important to convert your traffic into new users, customers, subscribers, etc., and to be able to analyze your results.

This includes understanding what kind of content/keywords users are searching for on your site.

Make sure you have an analytics tool installed on your website to help you analyze and understand your website’s traffic (e.g. Google Analytics).

For help analyzing your results, see the tutorials below:

See the Video Tutorials section below for video courses that will help you analyze your traffic and results.

Expand Content

The more you understand what information your target audience is searching for and what kinds of formats they like to consume, the more you can expand your content offering.

This includes not only creating new posts, articles, tutorials, etc. but also email newsletters, downloadable reports, videos, eBooks, online courses, etc.

See the Video Tutorials section below for video courses that will help you expand the content on your site.

Schedule Production

As you build up your list of new content topics and ideas, it’s important to have a content production system in place that allows you to schedule the regular creation and production of new content for publishing on your site.

This lets you repeat the cycle, e.g., add and promote new content on your site, automate its promotion, expand your online visibility and search presence, and increase the number of visitors to your site.

In addition to setting up efficient processes for content production, there are a number of plugins available that you can add to your WordPress site to automate these processes.
