Repurposing content should be a routine exercise for all businesses with a robust content marketing plan. Content drives traffic to your website for years after it’s created. You spend considerable time creating content and then market it. Why not utilise it to its absolute full potential by cleverly repurposing and giving it new life. You might forget about some real gems over the years. You can dust off posts, videos and all types of content to breathe new life into it and put it to good use.
In truth, choosing the right tools for you doesn’t have to be hard. I tested quite a few before I settled on the combination of tools I use now. I wanted to share them with you because they are simple to use and have free versions that are not time-limited. And that, for a new, growing business, I know is very important.
I draw inspiration for a lot of my content from my very own life experience, once I managed to shift the boulder that’s been sitting in the way of my progress for a while. I enjoy sharing those little gems because it means that someone out there will read and go, “me too!” and may use it as way of shifting their own boulder that has been sitting in the way of their progress for a while.
Online content managers often find themselves with clients who need support on several of their online platforms, however those clients don’t always know how to add another admin person to their account.

Most of us don’t have the luxury of an on-call film crew to help create great videos for our online courses & programs. However, there are plenty of things you can do, that are easy and will make people watch your course videos all the way through. Here are my top tips on making videos that engage the viewers and make them go back and keep watching.
It is widely thought that the cost of video production can be a prohibitive factor for small businesses when it comes to including video in their content marketing strategy. With the demise of Windows Live Movie Maker early this year and the editing suite in YouTube now redundant, it may seem like there are no free or low-cost video production options for small business. I’m here to tell you that there are!
Creating a welcome video sequence for your online course will start an instant rapport building process with your new students. You can introduce them to the course. Take them through the outline. Any advice on how to tackle the material and an encouraging message will go a long way.
You’ve just had a content strategy session with someone like me, perhaps even me, and you feel pumped about your content. You have a spring in your step and you feel like a boss! Fast forward five minutes and you’re already questioning if you are capable of carrying out the content plan you helped create.
Online courses are still the top way to deliver information to the masses on an accessible platform. Everyone has something to share and for every person that puts out an online course of some sort, there are many more who never do because they don’t have the know-how on how to create the content for it.
I write about content strategy a lot. One of the reasons I do that is because I want to bust some myths around it. Just the term itself can be pretty intimidating to someone who might have just started out in business or to someone who is trying to make it on their own and are a one woman/man band. Heck, even many seasoned entrepreneurs get chills at the mention of it.
