Blog Articles Re-purposed.

When I first started to blog it was a fairly new idea – I had heard it was good for business and they were all the rave. Little did I know what a blog can do for a business and it can do a lot.

Most of us know the virtues of having a blog. It positions you as an expert in your field, it brings in customers from around the globe, and it lets people know who you are and what you are about.

But a blog article is even more valuable than that because it can be used again for other purposes.

When you have a blog and write an article what do you do with it once you have posted it? 

Don’t let those articles become history – re-purpose them they are valuable resources to your business.

7 Ways to Use a Blog Article
  1. Newsletters
    • Use your articles and put them in your newsletters to send out to your subscribers.
  2. Article Marketing
    • Great way to get exposure – and back links.
  3. Slide Share
  4. Pinterest
    • Pin pictures from you posts on Pinterest – add a descriptive line and don’t forget to link back to the article.
  5. List articles for a monthly review.
  6. Feature blogs on Social media
    • Feature highlights of your post and link back to the blog post.
  7. Pull the articles together and write an e-book.
    • Once you have enough articles you can organize them and write your first product…
Think outside the box – Be creative. Below I have links to illustrate how I have done some of these things…
