practical and economical link building

I am struggling with building good quality back links to my site. Here is my strategy so far.

1. Article submission
2. Check what links point to competitors, manually contact web master of the site and ask him / her to place a link to my site
3. Blogging

What is the an efficient way to do this? Let's say my goad is to have 20 links (page rank 5), 40 links (page rank 3), 100 links (page rank 2) pointing back to my site in 2 month. Is this goal realistic?

I think with article submission i can get 300 links pointing back to my site or even much more within a 2 month period, but the problem is that most of the sites where article are submitted are page rank 0. The site itself where the article is submitted could be page rank 3 or higher, but the page from which the article links back to my site is usually page rank 0. I am not sure how google values that link.

I think my ratio from 20 emails that I sent and beg for link inclusion is usually 1 link, so i spend a few hours researching and send out 20 email and i get one response "i will include a link to your site ..." I think it is very inefficient process.

I have seen packages online where i can buy let's say 600 links for $300 with page rank 0 or I can buy a page rank 5 link for $10 / month. I think it is not really practical for me, the niche where I am trying to get good ranking is very competitive and it would be just too expensive to do it as i would need hundreds of links.

Blogging? hmm I guess i could do it on daily basis etc ...

The bottom line is that I want to move fast and have many good quality links pointing back to my site in 2 month or so. All the research that I have done on internet does not give me solutions which would allow me to spend a few hours a day and achieve my goal. It almost seems that it should be a full time job.

I would appreciate real practical suggestions that work or have worked for you.

Haha, you want it fast, but don't want work more than a few hours a day to achieve it... I think we all have that problem =)
How else can you get links to your site from another site without asking the webmaster to put your link on their site?  You can't really, unless they allow automatic content submissions (ie article marketing, blog commenting, etc).
1 in 20 is exactly the average you should expect from random "Please Add My Link" type email - even higher for high PR sites.  So to get 20 links you either need to send out 400 emails or increase your conversion rate.  
Most webmasters aren't going to give you a valuable link just because you ask, so try offering them something of value in exchange for the link... guest blog post, an exclusive article you wrote, a mention of them on your site.  Think of something that YOU would except in exchange for a link.
And if you want to increase the page rank of the pages that contain your links, pointing some links at them wouldn't hurt.

here is another thing i am started to realized, i am automated article submissions through a service which creates unique article versions and even with unique versions of your article, the search engines catches most of it and de-index back links to my site. I submitted to about 400 article directories and have only a few back links. Do you know how I can increase the number of links to stick with my article submissions.
