Five Brilliant Ways to Repurpose Content

Content, General Marketing 0 Comments

We get it, you’re busy and content marketing is hard. Getting the most traction out of the pieces you create will help save you time, resources, and will even generate a new audience. Below are five of our favorite ways to repurpose content.

Turning Old Blog Posts into Whitepapers

If you notice that you’ve posted a few blog posts about a similar topic, it might be a good time to group those posts and turn them into a longer piece like a whitepaper or guide. For example, we turned our many posts on social media into our whitepaper, The Financial Advisor’s Guide to Social Media.

Turn Data Into Case Studies

If you are using a Client Relationship Management software or manually keeping track of your clients, you likely have a lot of data about their investments, portfolio performance, engagement, and more. While case studies can be a bit of a compliance tip-toe, you can use this (anonymous) data to create case studies of your own.

Case studies are similar to testimonials because they establish proof that the tools or services you offer work. They are often framed as stories, showing the progress of one customer’s journey. A customer may have a problem, turn to a company, and find a way to solve their problem. For example, in a previous Live Video Broadcast, we showed how advisors solved a problem using FMG Suite products. In contrast, a testimonial is often a customer saying something positive about your company but not sharing how they use the tools. Both are great marketing aspects, but it’s important to understand the difference. Read more about case studies in our blog post here.

Turn a Presentation into a SlideShare

Any financial advisor who has hosted an event with a PowerPoint presentation understands the hard work that goes into preparing these slides. And thanks to SlideShare, LinkedIn’s slide sharing social media, you can reuse and recycle this material.

Chances are, there were people who wanted to attend your presentation but were unable to. By posting your slide deck on SlideShare, you can make it easy for prospects and clients to receive the information and get even more traction out of your hard work. You can also easily embed SlideShares into your blog, post them on social media, and direct traffic back to your site. Content marketing is one big loop and recycling content closes some gaps you may not have known existed.

Turn Visual Content into an Infographic

Have some pictures from your last community event, graphics that an internal team drafted up, or images from your website? These visual assets can quickly be turned into an infographic, which breathes new life into them. We suggest using sites like Canva or Easel.ly to create infographics quickly and easily. Get leads from these infographics by gating them on your site, embedding them into blog posts, or sending them out through email.

Consolidate Into a Newsletter

Lastly, after creating all of the above assets, create a newsletter for your company and grow your email list! One of the best ways to repurpose content is to group it together, send it out to your email lists, and drive traffic back to your site. We offer customizable newsletters in all of our packages that make it easy to gather your content, design your newsletter, and generate leads.

Content marketing does require some upfront commitment, but with a little tweaking and work, you can reuse your content and attract new audiences. All in favor of more content with less work, say “aye”!

Distill Your Niche

"...while they can’t turn back the clock and address these issues beforehand - such as increasing their spouse’s life insurance or saving more - there are ways to take control and feel more confident in their future.
When working with widows, there are a few first steps I recommend taking:

1. Get Organized
Whether or not you handled all of your family’s finances, some, or none, the first step is to organize your financial documents. Before you can determine how to budget and what steps to take, you have to first understand where you stand financially. If you are having trouble translating your investment account statements, a financial advisor can help you understand what your documents mean. You’ll want to copy and safeguard your important documents and review life insurance policies with a trusted advisor.

2. Budget for a Single Income
More than half of widows have difficulty adjusting to a single income. This may because they haven’t reevaluated their bills and expenses and adjusted..."

"...Once we understand your family’s current circumstances, goals, and unique needs, we develop strategies to help preserve and potentially grow your wealth and take over the time-consuming tasks associated with managing your complex financial affairs. Working with a family office can benefit families in a number of ways, including:

  • Preserving wealth through proactive management and appropriate strategies
  • Mitigating risk by diversifying investments
  • Assisting with the transfer of wealth from one generation to the next through strategic asset allocation and estate planning..."

Unique Articles in Your Voice

"...More than likely, you have a clear understanding of your relationship with your doctor or your dentist. You pay a fee and, in return, you receive a service, including advice and recommendations based on your individual situation. It would make sense then for your relationship with your financial advisor to be the same; but for many, that’s not the case.

At Financial Guideposts, we’ve noticed a trend: that the general public does not understand the relationship they have with their financial advisor. We want to change that. We believe there are two critical aspects you should understand when working with a financial advisor: how he or she gets paid and what services he or she provides..."
