How to Repurpose & Maximize your Content with Desiree Martinez
First you're going to want to start out with our master content pillar: YouTube.
Why YouTube? YouTube isn't just a platform; it's a constant, steady place where our content can thrive. The potential for evergreen content and broad reach make it a valuable asset. But we won't stop there – let's explore how we can turn one YouTube video into an array of impactful content pieces.
The Repurposing Journey Begins
Blog Post Transformation
Our long-form YouTube video has a treasure trove of information. Transcribing it using tools like rev.com or transcription software can turn it into a blog post. Refine the text for readability and embed the video, enhancing engagement. Websites with videos tend to outperform those without.
Leverage the video's content to craft compelling emails. Building your email list is crucial, and repurposing video content into emails keeps your audience engaged and directs traffic back to your video.
Vertical Videos for Social
The rise of vertical video demands our attention. Condense impactful moments from your video into short, snappy clips, perfect for platforms like Instagram Reels, TikTok, and more. Keep them under 59 seconds to accommodate various platform limits.
Storytelling is powerful, and platforms like Instagram and LinkedIn offer carousel posts for this purpose. Utilize sequential images to elaborate on the video's content, expanding its reach and engagement potential.
Text and Quote Graphics
Some platforms prefer text-based content. Craft text-based posts that encapsulate key takeaways from your video or pose questions to your audience. Graphics with quotes can further enhance engagement and shareability.
Pinterest thrives on visuals and linking. Create three specific pins: one to redirect traffic to your YouTube video, one for the blog post, and one repurposing content for other platforms. Resizing content for Pinterest's preferred dimensions ensures maximum impact.
The Numbers Game
You might be wondering how many pieces of content can emerge from one video. The answer? A whopping 10. From that single YouTube video, you can generate a blog post, an email, two vertical videos, a carousel post, a text post, a quote graphic post, and three Pinterest pins.
Work Smart, Repurpose Wisely
In a world where content rules, repurposing is your secret weapon. Transforming one YouTube video into a diverse range of content pieces multiplies your reach, engagement, and impact. By using each platform's unique strengths, you'll craft content that resonates across the digital landscape. So, let's embrace the art of repurposing and watch our content soar to new heights. Remember, it's not about working harder; it's about working smarter.
