Creating fresh content for your website and social media channels can be a daunting task, especially for small businesses and startups with limited resources. What if I told you there’s a way to maximise the reach and lifespan of your existing content without breaking the bank? The answer lies in repurposing your blog posts for social media, and it’s easier than you think. Better yet, our Blogs+Socials Combo Package makes it seamless and affordable.

Why Repurpose Content?

Before diving into the ‘how’, let’s explore the ‘why’. Repurposing content allows you to:

  • Increase your online reach
  • Extend the lifespan of your existing content
  • Save time and money on content creation
  • Improve SEO through consistent posting and backlinking

So how do you go about it? Here’s a step-by-step guide.

Identify High-Performing Content

Start by reviewing your blog analytics to identify the posts that are getting the most traffic, engagement, or conversions. These are the pieces that already resonate with your audience, making them prime candidates for repurposing.

Break It Down

Each blog post is a treasure trove of content snippets waiting to be unveiled. A 1000-word blog post can easily be broken down into:

  • Quotes or key points suitable for Twitter
  • Image captions for Instagram
  • Topic summaries for LinkedIn
  • Short video scripts for TikTok or Instagram Reels

Visualise It

Turn those words into visually appealing graphics or videos. Infographics, video snippets, and even simple images with text overlays can do wonders to capture attention on social platforms.

Plan Your Posts

Timing is everything in social media. Space out your repurposed content over a few days or weeks to keep your audience engaged without overwhelming them.

Make It Interactive

Turn your key points into questions or polls to encourage audience interaction. The more engagement your posts get, the higher they’ll appear in your followers’ feeds.

Measure and Tweak

Pay attention to the metrics. Are your repurposed Instagram captions driving traffic back to the original blog post? Is your summary post on LinkedIn getting more shares? Use this data to refine your strategy moving forward.
