How to Reuse, Recycle, Repurpose Your Content – Ep 24

In this episode we talk about content and how reuse, recycle and repurpose content you've already created into brand new content across social media channels.

Keystone Content is content you’ve spent a lot of time working on and thinking about and delivering through social media, books, blogs, videos, podcasts, presentations, white papers, reports or speeches. 

Reusing Content

  • Repost your content from your blog onto LinkedIn Pulse (Pro Tip: Be sure to reference where it was first published)
  • Repost a video from YouTube directly into Facebook
  • Upload a video from YouTube into directly into Facebook
  • Embed a YouTube video into a longer form blog post and crosslink
  • Embed a Facebook live video in a blog post (Pro Tip: You get credit in Facebook for views that happen on your blog)
  • Use clips of audio or videos from longer-form recordings
  • Promote all of these things across all social media channels

Recycling Content

  • Look for content on your blog or website that has done well and update it (use Google Analytics to find content that performs well)
  • If original content has great traffic, leave it in place and let people know it is updated
  • Write a new post with updated and link to it from a post that is getting traffic
  • If there’s no traffic on an old post, refresh the post and recycle it to use again

Repurpose Content

  • Capture shorter quotes from other long-form content
  • Make GIFS from a series of photos using GIF Maker
  • Use video clips from longer videos and live streams or audio clips from podcasts to use for social media
  • Put together a one-page cheat sheet from courses for a great piece of content based on something you’ve already created
  • Repurpose content from blog posts, webinars, podcasts or courses and think about how you can use it in other places.
