While content curation typically involves sharing and taking inspiration from third-party content (with credit, of course), the curator’s mindset can also be applied by looking within. Exploring your own content assets provides a great opportunity to amplify your most successful assets that are already providing great results.
Instead of taking chances with new, unproven content ideas, repurposing and curating from existing top-performing assets is a great way to boost your content marketing strategy and create a wide variety of content that can help different buyers move through the buyer's journey.
So how do you get started? In three steps, you’ll be able to assess, align and amplify.
• Step 1: Assess which assets to amplify. Discover which assets are performing the best by conducting a content audit and analyzing the data.
• Step 2: Align top performers with current audience needs. Just because something performed well in the past doesn’t mean it will in the future. Compare top performers to what’s relevant to your audience today.
• Step 3: Amplify by recycling, repurposing, republishing and repackaging. When you rethink your existing content, you’ll be able to create longevity and sustainably supplement your content marketing efforts.
What content does your organization have that can be repurposed into something different – and possibly even more effective? Think about your buyer's journey and existing assets, and fill in any gaps that may exist in your content strategy. At Red House, we help clients make the most of their content programming with long-lasting content that can stand the test of time – and ROI.
