In the meantime, here are the three top takeaways from this episode.

Three top takeaways:

Takeaway 1: It all starts with good content

The foundation of any successful content repurposing strategy is good content. In this case, it’s not about catchy punchlines or clever words. When it comes down to it, you want your content to deliver value to your audience.

How do you know you’re delivering value? Right off the bat, make sure your content doesn’t solely focus on you or your brand. Put the spotlight on your audience.

Think about ways that you can help your audience grow their skills and brand as a whole. At the end of the day, it’s this value that will make your repurposing efforts worthwhile.

Takeaway 2: Use a framework to help you

Repurposing your content is no walk in the park. We’re talking about lots of time, energy, and resources. To help out, Justin shared a few key things to consider before jumping into repurposing mode.

Use these tips to keep you on track:

  1. Plan everything ahead of time
  2. Put some thought into picking your distribution channels
  3. Tap into the effectiveness of email marketing
  4. Don’t underestimate the usefulness of pre-recorded sessions
  5. Pay attention to details

Takeaway 3: The structure of your content matters

Content repurposing involves a lot of cutting up content to distribute it in different mediums. This means that the way content is originally structured can either make it easier or harder to repurpose.

With things like panels and Q&A sessions, the work is practically done for you. There’s a goldmine of content to be tapped into from the individual answers.

Bottom line, try to avoid huge chunks of content that are difficult to dissect. Aim for bitesize content that’s easy to dissect, repurpose, and distribute.
