In a world where content is king, lawyers and law firms are finding ways to keep their brand visible and relevant by creating content that informs, educates, and resonates with their target audience.
However, creating fresh and engaging content regularly can be quite challenging, especially for law firms that have limited time and resources.
This is where content repurposing comes in. Content repurposing means taking an existing piece of content and using it in a new way to deliver value to your target audience.
In this blog, we will discuss what content repurposing is, how it can benefit your law firm, and some practical tips for doing it effectively.
What is content repurposing?
Content repurposing is the practice of taking content that has already been created and using it in another format or medium. For example, you may have written a blog post on a specific legal topic.
You can take the same content and use it to create a podcast or a video for your YouTube channel. The goal is to take the same message and deliver it to your audience in a way that suits their preferences.
The benefits of content repurposing
Content repurposing can save your law firm time and resources. It allows you to create a library of content that can be used in various formats and on different platforms.
This can increase your firm's visibility and reach. You can also convert your content into different formats to cater to different learning styles.
Some people prefer to read, while others prefer to watch or listen. By repurposing your content, you can cater to a wider audience.
How to repurpose your content
There are several ways to repurpose your content; this is not an exhuastive list but just to give an idea of how one piece of content can be sliced and diced.
First, you can turn a blog post into a quick 1-2 minute video summarizing the key points in the blog.
[Videos do not all need to be flashy Hollywood productions although they must still be of quality. For example, we use an excellent AI tool for text-to-video posts. We also have expert video production providers in our vendor network.]
You can also turn a series of blog posts on a specific topic into an e-book or white paper. This is an excellent way to establish thought leadership and capture email leads.
Another way to repurpose your content is to create social media posts using quotes or statistics from your blog.
You can use Canva to create visually appealing graphics to accompany your post and use your content to create a webinar or a workshop. This is an excellent way to promote your firm's services and establish credibility.
Here we have mentioned just 6 ways to repurpose content and there are so many more.
