Sales Tips you'll learn in The Sales Podcast...
- Content repurposing can help you generate more traffic
- Content marketing is saturated
- Too many people are producing too much content that is not distributed so it is hard to do, tiring, too limited in its modality, so your content is just lost in the noise
- Your website may not be the best place to host your content now
- People are too lazy to go to your website to read your content
- They want to consume on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, iTunes, etc
- "Content marketing without content remarketing will not work any longer."
- This is not "content syndication," i.e. sharing your blog post on a bunch of sites like Medium, LinkedIn, etc.
- Content repurposing is creating content as a blog post, a video, a SlideShare, a social media post, etc.
- To find time for content repurposing ...
- Stop creating new content
- Then squeeze your existing content to get more out of them
- For example, turn old interviews into blog posts then slides
- Focus on solving the problems your prospects have
- Evergreen solutions to evergreen prospects are best for content repurposing
- What do you want this content to do for your business?
- Have a CTA. Start there.
