You have little time, and don’t know what content to create – and post. The solution? Repurpose content. Content that YOU already have.

You have already spent time creating them so why stop there? Recreate them in different formats that are contextual to your audience and the platform they use. My team and I do this a lot.

It comes with benefits, too. We love benefits, don’t we?

Why should you repurpose content

Here are five benefits to repurposing either text or visual materials that you already have.

  1. Repurposed content gives your OLD evergreen content a FRESH lease of life.
    You bring it to the fore once again. It is also a perfect reminder to those who missed it the first time you posted it.
  2. Repurposed content EXTENDS the life of your new content.
  3. Repurposed content gets you additional inbound traffic to your site. Need I say more?
  4. Repurposed content could bring in a NEW set of audience.
    Many people are visual. Perhaps the text content just whizzed by their newsfeed so tailor your content to the context of that different group of audience.
  5. Repurposed content saves you a tremendous amount of time.
    You don’t have to rummage for contents elsewhere to share on social media. Recreate what you already have in different formats.

    The easiest way for you to check this is to go to your Google analytics. Look for your top articles that are driving traffic to your site. You can use those as your base topics when repurposing content.
  • Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Facebook have a feature embedded in its analytics that tells you which posts are performing well. You know where, or how, to find that, right? You just need to decide what KPI (key performance indicator) to use for this matter.
  • Make it thematic. Example: group together tips that you already shared that cater to a particular target audience, that is, if you cover several target audience.

There are so many ways to cook YOUR content into different formats!
