One of the best parts about the internet is there are many ways you can distribute content online. Most of the time, you can take a blog post or article and repurpose it over and over again.
Here are 5 ways you can repurpose a simple 500-word article.
1) Create a video and post it on Youtube.com
No, you do not have to be a professional cinematographer. If you have a webcam or a flip camera, then you’re all set. Just take your article and create a 1-4 minute video out of the content and post it on Youtube.
2) Record the audio and create a podcast.
Podcasting is becoming very popular. You can easily take your article and essentially read it into your computer to create a podcast version. All you need is a simple microphone and you’re all set.
3) Create a “mindmap” and post it on Flickr.com
You can also take the simple article and, with slight modifications, create a mindmap or process map and post it on Flickr. There are over 5 billion images on Flickr and you can get a lot of traffic on this site.
4) Create a slideshow and post it on Slideshare.com
This is becoming a very popular slide and presentation-sharing medium. You can even present the slideshow on Youtube.com.
5) Create a more “concentrated” version on Squidoo.com
You can take one concept you mentioned in your article and create a Squidoo lens on it. In general, it is a good idea not to publish the same article twice on the internet. Google will only index one version of the article, so it is better to create another related article and publish on the internet. It’s just a matter of taking an existing article and using it for ideas for other articles.
