A Lesson in Content Repurposing, Infographic Style
One of our mantras at Divvy is to help people work smarter, not harder. And in the world of content marketing, content repurposing is a great way to take a piece of evergreen content that you slaved over in the past, dust it off, repackage it in the popular content format of the day, publish it and then watch as your audiences embrace it as if it were a new piece. Such is the case with a helpful little blog post that I wrote back in March of 2011.
My First Guest Blog Post Ever
In early 2011, I was asked to guest blog for the Content Marketing Institute, which actually came from a consistent blog commenting strategy that I have executed for years. With their heavy focus on “how-to” content, I whipped up a post on the “12 Things You Need to Do After Writing a New Blog Post”. The checklist-style post was well received with thousands of retweets, likes and shares.
Now fast forward to March 2012. The infographic craze is in full swing, so I was perusing my content archives looking for something that I could turn into a good visual. I quickly recalled many CMI comments talking about how they had printed out the text-based checklist and had it pinned to their cube wall. BINGO! The rest is history…in the making.
