3 Simple Ways to Repurpose Your Blog Posts for More Exposure

social media how toHow many ways are you leveraging your blog posts?

Most people write a post and that’s the end of it. You’re probably syndicating your blog feed to the usual places: Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, at the very least. And that’s a good thing.

Yet there are many other ways to get more mileage out of your content.

As discussed in one of my prior articles, content syndication is just one part of the equation.  But to really get the most leverage from your blog, think about how many ways you can repurpose the content (and then syndicate the new formats to all the usual sites).

Repurposing your content means turning your blog posts into different formats like reports, white papers, articles, slide shows, videos, podcasts, teleseminars, ebooks, etc.

Why Repurpose Content?

It may come as a shock, but not all your ideal clients know about or read your blog! There are people in your target audience hanging out on other sites all over the web. People are looking for information to read, share and learn from, and you want them to find you and your solutions.

When you publish content on your blog, you’re most likely providing valuable, relevant information that demonstrates how you solve the problems of your ideal client or customer.

While having that content on your blog is a great place to start, there are many more prospects you can reach by simply repurposing the content in a few ways and distributing that content on other platforms.

You get more exposure and more value from the time you’ve initially invested in creating the content. Not to mention that you can drive more traffic back to your home base.

What You Need to Know

There is some preparation required when repurposing and distributing your content on multiple sites.  First, you must set up accounts on the sites you want to use for distribution. Always fill out your profile completely, along with adding your picture when you can.

Also I recommend creating a template you can use to hand this project off to an assistant. For every new post you repurpose, you’ll need to have the following information handy: title, short description and keywords. This should be fairly simple to pull from the original post. Now you’re ready to go.

Let’s look at three simple ways to repurpose your blog posts that don’t require a lot of time or technical know-how: articles, PDFs and audio.

#1: Reformat for Article Directory Sites

This is the simplest and fastest way to repurpose your blog posts.

If your posts are about 500-1000 words, this is a great way to get in front of millions of additional eyeballs. While there are dozens, if not hundreds, of article directory sites, two stand far above the rest and will do the job for you: EzineArticles.com and IdeaMarketers.com.

Upload your repurposed blog post to EzineArticles.com to get in front of 30,000,000 monthly visitors.

Both sites have been around for years, have millions of monthly visitors and are easy to use. Both have the option to upgrade a free account to a paid account so you can get faster approval and featured status, but you can get great exposure without the investment.

When you submit your content, you may want to tweak the title and make sure the content is not overly self-promotional. EzineArticles will reject articles with promotional links in the body.

You’ll also need to create an Author Resource box with contact info, a call to action and a link back to your blog or landing page.

Both sites give you the option to have links to your new articles syndicated to your social sites.

#2: Reformat for Document-sharing Sites

Document-sharing sites cater to those who want to share and read documents as PDF, Word docs or slides. Scribd, for example, has tens of millions of readers every month who read and download documents from the site. The advantage here is that you can embed links and images in your documents, unlike some of the article sites that don’t accommodate images.

Docstoc.com, another popular site, gives you the tools to sell your professional documents as well as give them away for free.

Again, it is super-simple to distribute your content. Copy your blog post into a Word doc; make sure it’s nicely formatted; add your author bio with a call to action and link(s) to your blog, site and/or free reports; then convert to PDF. Upload and you’re done.

A cool feature on some doc-sharing sites like Scribd, Docstoc and others, is the ability to embed your documents on web pages and blogs. This gives readers an easy way to share your content and again extend your reach to new audiences.

Scribd and other document-sharing sites let fans embed and share your content on their own sites.

Here are three more document-sharing sites:

#3: Record an Audio Version of Your Post

I’m seeing more and more bloggers create audio versions of their blog posts. This is not difficult to do and gives your audience an additional way to consume your wisdom.

Not everyone likes to read, so create a podcast and you extend your reach even further. There are dozens of podcast directories, and of course the heavyweight is iTunes.

About 13% (27 million) of U.S. Internet users listen to podcasts so this is an audience you don’t want to overlook. They may never find your blog, but they’re using iTunes to find content.

You don’t need to be a recording star to create a decent audio of your blog post. I recommend Audacity, for free recording software. You’ll need to host your mp3 audio files on the web and create a podcast feed. Some options are Podbean or Feedburner if you post the audio on your blog.

Once the podcast feed is created, submit it to iTunes (and any other podcast directory you wish). To submit to iTunes, go to the iTunes Store, navigate to the Podcasts directory, and click on the Submit a Podcast link.

The information you’ll need to have on hand when you’re ready to submit your podcast includes: title of your “show” (the collection of audio posts you’ll be creating from your blog), description, keywords, category, and if possible, a graphic image or logo for your show.

Once you have the podcast feed created and submitted to iTunes, then it’s simply a matter of recording each blog post. I suggest a two-step approach to distributing the audio: 1) add the audio to your blog post so people can read or listen on your blog as they prefer and 2) add to your podcast feed so people can download to their mp3 player and listen on the go.

Add an audio version of your blog post to reach a bigger audience.

TIP: when you record your blog post, make sure to add a call to action or invitation to visit your blog along with your name and URL of the blog.

Much of this work can be done by a virtual assistant, especially submitting your article/document to the various sites. You write and record the post, provide the info: title, description and keywords, then have your assistant do the formatting and submissions.

Articles, PDFs and audio posts each provide an opportunity for you to reach new audiences. Now you’ve got at least three more paths from high-traffic sites leading back to your home base.

How many ways are you leveraging your blog posts? These are just three examples. What other formats have you found to effectively repurpose and distribute your blog content? Please join the discussion by commenting in the box below.

    Awesome post on repurposing and converting your blog content into different formats (text, audio, video) and distributing it using underutilized and untapped channels.

    This is something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately. People like to read blogs, but there is a huge group of “readership” that prefers their information in audio/video format.

    I myself like to listen to “blog posts” (podcasts) while on the go.

    In terms of distribution channels, one channel that is severely underutilized is Bit Torrent. Its not just for geeks and criminals, you know :-)

    When someone is on BT they are looking to download something. Why not your collective blog posts in .pdf format? Why not your podcast? Why not that lecture you taped and edited and made available in video format?

    I wrote a post for a friend few days ago on exactly this. She was interested in distributing her novel using Bit Torrent, why not you blog, audio or video as well?

    Thanks for the great tips. I have noticed that podcasts are becoming more popular. People are always on the go and it is easier for many to just download the podcast and listen to it on their iPod rather than download the article and read it on their computer. Having different options is good for followers because everyone has different preferences. Some learn better viewing content and some prefer audio. I have used Audacity before and it is super easy to use and the results were great. Reformatting a blog post is a great way to gain exposure and viewers.

    Hi Denise,Thank you for mentioning virtual assistants! Our industry appreciates the nod. :) Yes, VAs can also post the Scribd work and the audio files in addition to posting to the various article directories.Another tip for re-purposing blog posts, which are of similar subject matter is to organize them into a mini-ebook for use as a free download. This is a nice freebie to use as part of a call-to-action plan in exchange for a subscriber’s email address.

    I also like to take blog posts and turn them into press releases. For example, I was working on a volunteer project and wrote a blog post about the benefits of volunteering. In turn, I took snippets from the post and created a press release which was picked up by the local media. This prompted a reporter to call about the project which led to a spot on the local nightly news. .Thank you.Janine Gregorhttp://www.YourVirtualWizard.comMarketing Virtual Assistant

    I like the idea of using audio for your blog posts, Even just posting a quick audio telling folks you have a new blogpost on services such as http://www.cinchcast.com which have social networking built around them. You can easily post your cinch to twitter as well. I actually posted a article about marketing with audio if you want to find out about a few more services or just contact me if you want some more.

    I dont mean to oversell it, but thats how Seth Godin broke onto the scene (Unleashing the Idea Virus was all over torrent sites and downloaded en-masse). I’ve discovered 30-40 minute lectures by then unknown authors (to me) and went out and purchased their books. Ton of artists are sharing their stuff openly using Creative Commons license via Torrent sites….its an amazing collective that mainstream is still only marginally aware of.

  • http://www.christopheradams.com/blog Christopher Adams

    Thanks Denise,
    I have used audioboo.fm but have found cinchcast to be better in my opinion. I also think the iphone app for cinchcast is much better than audioboo iphone app so that swings my decision a bit too. Another one is http://www.shoutomatic.com but again prefer cinchcast over this one. I would love to hear what other tools people use for audio sharing online.

  • http://www.facebook.com/evelyn.bourne Evelyn Bourne

    Denise,

    Fabulous post. You’re totally letting out the secret about Scribd. I get lots of good traffic when I post there. I’m chiming in with Christopher about cinchcast.com. I need to get back to recording audio updates when I post new blog content. I will check out the other sites you mentioned, and yes, using a VA makes all of this more efficient.

  • http://www.freelancefactfile.com Freelance Factfile

    Some excellent tips, Denise. Thanks. I’ve been meaning to do audio versions of my blog posts and have got as far as installing Audacity. Your article has spurred me to take action!

  • http://mytwittertoolbox.com David Perdew

    Denise – I noticed in the comments you mentioned distilling a post down to a series of Tweets. I love that. I actually strip 110 character quotes out of all my ebooks and articles in different niches to create scheduled Tweets. It’s a great way of getting long-term leverage from a single piece of content.

    REALLY looking forward to seeing you at NAMS4 in August.

    I haven’t looked up your background, Denise, but it just occurred to me that after 10 years of bloggers yelling at traditional media types (“you don’t get it!”), those traditional media types are starting to invade Blogistan with a vengeance, and “traditional” bloggers are about to get their patootie handed to them.

  • http://twitter.com/doughay Doug Hay

    I like the idea of repurposing content for the article sites. What are your thoughts on guest blogging? Do most of them require original content?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=13803832 Nick Robinson

    When submitting an article to content syndication sites, isn’t it more effective to have a completely original article with a backlink to your blog? I perform content syndication for my SEO clients now with original content. The reason I ask is I would be worried about duplication. Any suggestions?

  • AdamStanecki

    Another great article, Denise.
    I really like the idea of having each blog post available in audio.
    I’ll be looking into incorporating this into my blog.
    Thank you.
