  1. 1. Repurposing Content For The Web - How To Reuse Your Old Content Visit http://www.yearn2earncash.com/ for more information on this and other methods of marketing.
  2. 2. Repurposing Content For The Web - How To Reuse Your Old Content Repurposing content for the web is the process of reusing your old content over and over again, in such a way that you give it a new appearance, so that it seems like fresh content. If you find it hard to keep coming up with new content all the time, you will be pleased to know that there are many simple ways of reusing your old content, and here we take a look at some of them.
  3. 3. Repurposing Content For The Web - How To Reuse Your Old Content One of the oldest and most popular ways of repurposing content for the web would be to turn it into an eBook. This has the advantage of allowing you to take your content to the visitor, rather than having to find a way of getting your visitors to the content. By this I mean that it is so much easier to allow people to share and copy your ebooks than it is to get traffic to an individual website.
  4. 4. Repurposing Content For The Web - How To Reuse Your Old Content Ebooks can be created simply by using Google Docs at docs.google.com or open office at Openoffice.org for example. Once you have your content, just copy and paste it into Google Docs then use the "Print" command and save the PDF file which is created to give it away later if you want to go for a viral marketing effect, or else sell the content. With open office simply export your chosen content as PDF format.
  5. 5. Repurposing Content For The Web - How To Reuse Your Old Content Sites such as Scribd.com , for example, allow you to upload ebooks to give away, and get a huge audience, so they will be a valuable resource to you if you plan on repurposing content for the web using ebooks. But there are other ways of creating ebooks, and this is where it starts to get exciting!
  6. 6. Repurposing Content For The Web - How To Reuse Your Old Content If you have access to Microsoft PowerPoint (or again, Open Office which is free) you can create slides of your content (again just copy and paste your old content in) and these slides can then be uploaded to various websites such as slideshare.net . You are still not creating any new content, just reusing all your currently existing content in a manner that can open it up to a whole new audience!
  7. 7. Repurposing Content For The Web - How To Reuse Your Old Content Now from your slide presentations’, you have the option of recording the presentation using free screen capture recording software such as that at CamStudio.org . Some of the free screen capture recording software might be somewhat limited in its usability, but then you do have the option of recording your entire presentation, and then simply editing it together better after you have finished recording.
  8. 8. Repurposing Content For The Web - How To Reuse Your Old Content The free windows movie maker software from Microsoft is an excellent resource in both editing and producing your finished video, in various formats. It is at this point that repurposing content for the web starts to really take off, as you now have video content that you can either sell (we will come to that option momentarily) or use as free content on the many video submission sites out there.
  9. 9. Repurposing Content For The Web - How To Reuse Your Old Content YouTube (amongst many other video sharing sites) will be immensely valuable to you if you plan on giving away your content as free videos. The number of views, and therefore potential traffic, can be huge. There are many people now that use YouTube as a search engine in itself - as in they search for whatever they are looking for directly within YouTube itself, rather than searching in Google first and clicking through from any videos displayed there.
  10. 10. Repurposing Content For The Web - How To Reuse Your Old Content As mentioned above if you plan on repurposing content for the web in video format you have two options, firstly giving away any content created as free content, and secondly as selling such content. At first glance the second option might sound too complicated, but there are actually simple steps to take in order to make this happen, and we will take a look at this next.
  11. 11. Repurposing Content For The Web - How To Reuse Your Old Content Once you have your video content, all you need to do is upload it to a website called Kunaki.com , and they can create a DVD complete with a DVD case, case insert and case outer cover that is finally shrink wrapped and ready for easy sale on Amazon. You can either manually login daily and arrange for any DVD's you sell to be sent off to the buyer, or you can have the whole thing setup to happen automatically between Amazon and PayPal.
  12. 12. Repurposing Content For The Web - How To Reuse Your Old Content Of course before you take this step you will also need to have the design for the actual DVD disc, the design for the DVD case insert and the design for the DVD case outer cover, but all of these can be created for you on sites such as Elance.com or even Fiverr.com , so its not such a big leap to take in order to do this for the first time.
  13. 13. Repurposing Content For The Web - How To Reuse Your Old Content Finally it’s worth mentioning that no matter how old you content is, it’s still almost certainly worth reusing. If you have old articles, press releases, blog posts and even classified ads out there that are still relevant and that you can even still find and are 100% your own content, then you can still copy and paste them into a text editor, tweak them if need be, then as described above and in the format of your choice start repurposing content for the web!
