Copywriting time: Writing your content in 1 MINUTE!

Copywriting time: Writing your content in 1 MINUTE | copywriting courses | Elizabeth Campbell

Yes, you read that right, it’s not clickbait, I promise! You can write your content in one minute or less. But there is a trick – it’s called 1-minute content for a reason because not all content is created equally.

Now, of course, you can’t write all of your content in one minute, but you can certainly write some of your content in one minute.

So in today’s post, I’d like you to think about your content differently. You don’t need to set aside 1-2 hours every week just to write a blog. You can, but you’re doing the old-school way! Nowadays, there’s a new trend and it’s writing on-the-go and doing so in only minutes.

If that’s all you’ve got to spare – then that’s how you use your time to write your content.

Let’s take a look at my 1-Minute Copywriting Method in the Content Timeline.

  • I-minute content
  • 5-minute content
  • 10-minute content
  • 30-minute content 
  • 60+- minute content

Various pieces of content take longer to write than others. A sales page will take you longer than a social post. So I’ve broken it down into minutes so you can use your time wisely and still pump out your content!

You can then work out what time you’ve got and what you can realistically get written.

This is just one of the methods I teach in my copywriting courses. Stay tuned for more on that.
