5 Ways to Repurpose Your Existing Content

Who’s your favorite Superman? Is it Christopher Reeve, Dean Cain, or Henry Cavill? If you’re like many Superman aficionados, you may not have a favorite. You enjoy them all on their own merits. Each rendition of Superman brought a new facet to the character. Content is much like those favorite characters who we keep bringing back.

The best content continues to be relevant and interesting, even when it’s presented in different media. One person’s favorite Superman may not appeal to another person. That text-based blog post may not interest someone who prefers videos. Here are five ideas to take content and to reuse it to get more out of it.

1 - Turn Blog Posts into Podcasts

According to Statista, in spring 2020 about 20% of surveyed Canadian adults listened to a podcast in the last month. Podcasts are just a way to listen to content in the car, while you’re exercising or just when you’re not up to reading. It’s easy to take some blog posts and hire someone with a good voice to read them. Once you find what works with your listeners, you can create all types of podcasts that demonstrate your authority on the subject.

2 - Transform a Webinar into a How-to Video

A webinar may be a great one-time event, but months later, you’ve still got the same information sitting in your archives. Instead of reposting the webinar itself, turn it into a YouTube video to gain a different audience. There are many video editing tools that can help you create a video that is engaging. Some people prefer video over words, so you’ll reach different people.

3 - Turn Customer Reviews into a Blog Post

You didn’t create the customer reviews, but people are reading them. Ask customers who wrote glowing reviews if you can use their good words to create a blog post that showcases what customers are saying. Interview local customers and create a video of a case study on why customers shop with you or use your product.

4 - Use Data to Create Social Media Posts

Statistical data can often be very boring, but when you take one interesting fact out of a list and turn it into a social media post, you can direct your followers to read more about the topic. For example, did you know that 70% of respondents think SEO is better than PPC to generate sales? (HubSpot)

5 - Repackage Blog Posts Into an eBook

Take your best blogs and recreate them into an eBook that you can market online and/or to new customers when they sign up for your newsletter. eBooks are a great tool and a way to build authority in an industry. You can add content, such as expert advice or a special chapter to make sure it gets interest. eBooks can be downloaded to read later, making this medium popular to a different type of audience.

Get the Most Value Out of Your Content

These are just a few ideas on how to take content and turn it into something new. Using good content in different media and platforms is a way to refresh content without investing in new pieces of writing.

Revitalize, Refine, Repurpose

The Pareto principle is also known as the 80/20 rule. About 80% of your best results will come from 20% of your efforts. When you apply that to a creative endeavour like content marketing, you might be undervaluing some of your content creative efforts. It can be expensive to create content, from scheduling videographers, photographers, models, or even having quality copywriters write a blog post. Chances are that you have some valuable content that can be recycled or repurposed with a little elbow grease.

Why Your Content Must Be the Burning Question for Your Audience!

Google is constantly adding search features that help users get relevant information quickly. The “People Also Ask” feature has been around for a while, but it seems to be gaining traction as it’s being used in more searches. PAA boxes are another type of digital real estate, increasing your reach on a particular subject if you can get featured as an answer to a PAA question. Make it part of your content marketing strategy, even if you don’t rank for it immediately. The results might be slow, but they are worth waiting for.

And Why It's Important!

Featured snippets on Google are valuable digital real estate for your content marketing assets. These snippets are quick answers to search questions. Although snippets are designed to provide answers for the user without having to clickthrough to the page, Hubspot found that content with a snippet had a higher click-through rate of 2x or more, making this search feature important to your SEO strategy. If you can get your copywriting featured as a snippet, it builds your authority and visibility.
