Making content every day is a daunting task, especially for someone who is often busy and not very enthusiastic about writing. It's a whole process, but there's a trick to it. You may want to read till the end, I have a toolkit for you.
Have you thought about resharing an old post? Repurposing content is taking existing content and re-using it in a new context so that a new audience can see it. There's nothing wrong with reposting old content again and again. People check your site or social media pages every day, hungry to find something worthwhile that is hiding at the bottom of the pile.
A good content repurposing strategy relies on repurposing high-performing content.
It is okay to worry that reposting old content might make you appear lazy or that some of your listeners might be able to tell it's an old post. Don't worry, you are simply presenting the information in a better format to suit their preference.
These are some reasons why you should repurpose your content: It is more time-efficient, helps your team to be more productive, positions your organization as an expert, and attracts more people to your organization.
So how exactly can you repurpose your content? Here are a few ideas to get you going
