And repurposing also you can do with video. So the third method, you can save time with your writing is use video instant. All right, so Facebook lives are easy ways to create content when you really don’t have time to write a post. I use video a lot when I just physically don’t have an hour or two to write a blog post. Right.

So as I say, can take up to three hours for me to write a long piece of article. So but it only takes me about 30 minutes to do a Facebook live, mostly twenty five minutes.

So if I know I can’t write, I don’t have a block of time, I start doing quick videos to keep my audience up to date with my life, but to also be in the minds of my readers often.

All right. So you can do an Instagram live if you want. You can even do the Instagram reals. It doesn’t have to be like a live video at the time.
[00:01:39].500] – Elna Cain
You can post a YouTube video or do a Facebook live.
[00:01:43].160] – Elna Cain
All right. So Facebook lives they’re for me, the easiest ways to create content when I don’t have time to write a post so as I was saying, takes up to three hours for me to write. So here I have a video that I did over in my Facebook group, Mom to Mompreneurs, it’s the first step to SEO for new bloggers. And then, I don’t know, I’d say probably a few months later, I created a blog post called What is a SEO Getting Your Site ranking in 2020.

So then this was the video that I got inspired by to write that post. And in that post I put the video in it. All right, so we covered repurposing. So think about all the different ways that you can start repurposing your content, using video to write a blog post, using a video to create an email, using a video to create another video. Maybe you can do sort of like a pre-step of the of the video that you just did thing.
[00:02:46].200] – Elna Cain
All right. You can do a blog posting video, a blog posting email. Lots of different ways to repurpose your content.
