    This is a right on time article for me! I just started looking at ways I can repurpose my content.

    I have some PLR articles on my list to edit and create powerpoint presentations out of to upload on scribd.com.

    In addition, I have some content I’ve been meaning to put on Youtube (soon as I get my VA on board!) :-)

    I had never heard of cinchcast so I’ll add that to my list…thanks!

    You are welcome. Thank you for visiting our blogsite. Great to hear that you found this article to be helpful and a resource.

    Have not used any PLR’s yet. That is definitely something to consider down the road.

    Look forward to see your You Tube Video. It’s so much fun putting videos together.

    Let us know what you think of Cinchcast.

  2. I especially like #3 :) I find that in applying #2 I like to post to my blog first so that I get credit for it rather than submitting to the article directories first.

    Have to start doing the last three you recommended, Jane to create a more viral effect. Thanks for these pointers. Great post!

    Yvonne-

    If anyone knows about ezine articles, you are the go to source. Read many of your publications via ezine articles.

    Yes, work in progress with the last three. Keeping the momentum going.

    Thank you for dropping by.

    Jane :)

  3. I think the greatest aspect of recycling your content is that you’ll reach a lot more people since not everyone gathers or absorbs information the same way. Some folks are visual, some auditory, some prefer to read, and some are a ‘mix’.

    To me, repurposing is all about OUTREACH!

    Great tips, Jane. :)

    Melanie-

    Love the term “OUTREACH”. Totally agree with you. Not everyone hangs out at the same locale and each person absorbs information via different venues.

    Thank you for knocking on my door.

    Jane :)

  5. Excellent tips. Repurposing is a powerful way to get our message out in many different ways. I like turning text into audio. But then, I like any product development that serves my market.

    Hi Jane,

    Thanks for sharing those tips. I have just started blogging and thought I didn’t have enough content to repurpose. Now you have shifted my perspective and I can see that it’s possible for me to record audios and videos for the blog.

    I will leave them for another month as I just want to get a rhythm going instead of trying to figure out the technical side of recording.

    One step at a time :)

    Look forward to seeing videos and audios in your future blog posts.

  8. This article is so awesome. I did just that, I took my blog post and answered questions, and turn it into two e-books. I also do youtube videos about my blog post as well and I post it on facebook. twitter, linked in, and in all my other groups that i’m in. Thanks for sharing

    Thank you for visitng our blogsite. Glad you found the article a resource. Congratulations on producing 2 e-books, videos and spreading it virally. You got an assembly line going there. Best wishes!

  9. Hi Jane! Those are great suggestions and right on time for me.

    I was just writing a blog post for next month and I had a thought about using some of what I have written already, along with next month’s posts, to create another eCourse or an ebook.

    Or maybe hold off until I have enough for an ebook? Still pondering…

    Let us know when the eBook or eCourse comes out. This is so exciting.

  10. Jane, I’ve used all of these ideas except podcasts. I also write Squidoo lenses, include posts in other products (e.g. direct people to the post for additional info) and create what Darren Rowse calls “sneeze pages” (pages that list all my posts on a particular common topic). Sneeze pages technically aren’t repurposing my content, but they make them more available for people.

    What has been your experience with Squidoo lenses?

    This is the first time that I heard about Sneeze pages. Sounds interesting. Thank you for sharing.

    Jane :)

  11. This is a great reminder that we don’t have to make our jobs quite so hard. After reading this I turned part of one blog post into a PowerPoint presentation. I put it on SlideShare and then made a video of it with audio for youtube. I have also used that same blog post to create an “e-book” (along with other posts) and I put it on a document sharing site, too! There are so many ways to repurpose your blog posts and the great thing is that they almost always come with lovely backlinks as well.

    Oh, and since this particular post was quite long (50 points) I also made a blogger blog to showcase the videos on. Some fresh text and BAM! new traffic generator and nice links!

  14. Loved the other streams ~ video, podcasts, etc. Then I don’t even have to worry about google and duplication of content or polishing blogs to avoid that issue when I don’t have time for rewriting. Excellent, thanks!

    Great post Jane! I needed to see these reminders for sure!

    I think it’s about time I started using cinchcast. I have had some success making podcasts and I need to pick that up too.

    Look forward to hearing your first cinchcast. Are your podcasts on itunes? Thank you for stopping by.

  18. My experience with Squidoo lenses has been very positive. I love the platform and the community. Doing great keyword research, writing high quality pages and being involved in the community is essential.

    Repurposing your content it’s a great way to create more content for your site and as a result to get more traffic. There are many ways to repurpose your content but for me the most effective is to convert articles to video presentations, this is a great way to establish your self as an expert on your field and get quality back links and traffic…
