ACP : Repurpose Your Content

Repurposing your content can be one of the most powerful ways to increasing the number of views your content is getting. This is something I am working on myself and working hard to systemize and make as streamlined as possible. I might do a guide on it in the future, but basically I want to be able to turn a blog post quickly into a video, then have my team edit it and distribute it across all the below sources.

Turn into Slide Deck

The first step is to break down your post into a slide deck. This is generally pretty easy, have a different slide for each subheading or list point, however your post is structured. Add in your images and related links. A good ideas is to create a branded template that you can just plugin all of your posts to make this process smoother.

Once you have made your slide presentation, submit it to the below sites:

SlideShare
Scribd
SlideRocket
Authorstream
Slideboom
My Brainshark
PowerShow
Slideserve

Turn into Video

You can then take your slide deck, and use it to record a video. Draft up a script, then voice over it while reading your slides. You will want to make sure you have a good microphone before doing this as quality audio can make all the difference. Here is a link to the one I use.

If you don’t want to record the video yourself, you can write up a script and have someone from Elance read it for you.

If you want some more inspiration on making videos, check out this post: How to Make a Startup Explainer Video on a Budget.

Once your video is made, upload it to the following video sites:
YouTube.com
Tumblr
Flickr
4shared
Daily Motion
Photobucket
Imageshack
Multiply
Tu.tv
Wat.tv
Bebo
Flixya
VidiVodo
Esnips
Buzznet

Turn into Podcast

Strip the audio out of the video, and upload the .mp3 to the following podcast directories:

iTunes Store
Micro Guide
Stitcher
Double Twist
Sound Cloud
BluBrry
