Don’t forget to recycle your newsletter content

If you’ve written articles for your newsletter, don’t waste them.

You can use them again in a variety of formats.

Then you’ll get much more mileage out of everything you write.

Try using them…

On your website: you’ll add several search-engine friendly pages to your website that will attract more viewers and keep them sticking around longer. You’ll be able to display your expertise to website visitors.

On your blog: if you have a blog (and, by the way, they’re a great way of marketing yourself, if you have an online presence), you can use some of the articles on your blog.

On article syndication websites: article marketing, as it is called, is a great way to get yourself noticed. You place a ‘resource box’ at the bottom of your article that links back to your own website.

Contributing to other newsletters: if you know another (non-competing) business with a newsletter, maybe they would value your content. Just make sure you get a mention at the end of the article.

Collect articles and turn them into a book or ebook: after a few editions of your newsletter, you’ll build a library of valuable content that can be recycled into another product that is either given away free or sold.
