This past week, the SEJ ThinkTank was joined by our very own Kelsey Jones, Executive Editor of Search Engine Journal, for a 45-minute webinar about how to increase the life of your content through repurposing. Kelsey walked us through several examples and gave strategies to use if you want to give more life to your brilliant content ideas.
After her presentation, she and SEJ Founder Loren Baker answered questions live from the audience.
Takeaways from Kelsey’s Presentation
Coming up with good content ideas is a struggle for many marketers. Kelsey’s presentation gave strategies for getting the most out of your content by repurposing your content in multiple mediums. This is a really effective way to provide your audience with valuable content on a regular basis. Here are a few highlights from her presentation:
- Convert written content into video or audio files to reach more people.
- Publishing in different formats is really effective, and research shows you can increase engagement by providing content in multiple formats.
- Make sure to adjust your content to each format for best results.
- Consider partnering with other publications to increase your reach through syndication. (And make sure to use canonical links, so you don’t run into duplication issues.)
Kelsey mentioned quite a few resources during her presentation, which I shared in the live chat box. Here they are again for your reference.
