How to “multiply” your successful posts many times?
Every blogger, especially those who have been blogging for a long time and pleasure, has unusually successful posts. It is inevitable how … (I don’t even know what to compare with, everyone can come up with the end of the sentence himself). Only one thing is bad: such posts are few, hellishly few! Everything seems to be good. You yourself are satisfied with the post, you receive laudatory comments and constructive (or not so) criticism … You rest on your laurels: “Here I am (what)!” It’s only too early to rest! This is only the first, the most meager benefit that this undoubtedly successful and memorable post can bring to you. And when you try to write something similar it turns out badly … Just think. A lot of work has been done. But even if your blog is very visited and generally “humpy,” it is still just a small molecule of a huge organism called the World Wide Web. And if you work a little more, a huge tree will grow out of this seed, which will bear fruit for many years. Links to the blog, fame, money … Content is not only text, but also audio, video, graphics … For each form of content, there are specific channels that are almost closed to other forms. For example, YouTube video hosting. In addition, people are different. Some people perceive only textual information well, others – an interesting audio story, others – give the video, and even with special effects, fourth believe only very specialized publications. Let’s get our brains out a little. Not literally, of course. Just think. Is it possible to make a podcast, video tutorial, or something like a comic book based on “successful post” information … can I make an instruction, an analytical article, an essay with philosophical implication? Is it possible to combine this post with other similar ones and release an e-book? Is such a conversion possible in principle? Even as possible! This work is called “content replication” and, if the information below is not enough, just type the phrase “content replication” in any search engine. The term “replication” itself came from genetics, this sophisticated word refers to the division of the DNA helix during reproduction (cell division). Moreover, if the parts of this spiral during division change, this is called a mutation. So, we will be engaged in replication (reproduction with mutations) of your post written earlier and proved to be of interest to the audience of the post. I warn you again, it makes sense to propagate only the best content, the value of which has already been tested in practice, that is, on the readers of your blog. You are ready? If so, go ahead! 1. You can use this post as a “fish” (the basis for “reproduction”) for articles under various specialized online publications. We read the requirements, adjust the information, send. The results will certainly be. Somewhere they’ll pay. Somewhere will post your article with a link to a blog. Somewhere they’ll just publish it, but if the material is interesting and professionally worked out, they’ll “take it with a pencil,” and your other material will be easier in this publication. 2. You can make a simple rewrite of the text, retelling of the main provisions of the post in other words, and send it for sale to content exchanges. 3. Compose another post based on additions from comments and (or) slightly change the post taking into account additions from comments. You can publish a post in the form of questions and answers, something like an interview. 4. Record an audio podcast. First you just need to read the article in front of the microphone. This will be a draft. Listen to what sounds, what reservations the reader allows. Correct mistakes. Think about what kind of music is right for the material, which sound effects would be good to add. Try, invent. 5. Create a video based on the post. For example, if this is an instruction, then why not remove the process (for example, cooking a dish according to your recipe) on video? In fact, it is not as difficult as many people think. In addition, the possibilities for creative improvisation are almost endless. So, based on one book, you can shoot a huge number of films. Change actors, costumes, sets, shoot in a different genre, think up a sequel … 6. Think about whether it is possible to make a screencast from a post, that is, video instruction from a computer screen. 7. If there is a series of posts united by one topic, then, having reworked the material a little, you can do something like a small book and let it go on the Net. You can even sell this product if it is likely that you will find a fairly large number of buyers. 8. You can “cut” quotes from the post and post on the forums, indicating in the signature the address of your blog. 9. Try to “squeeze” the main idea of your post into 140 characters and, if possible, post the phrase on Twitter and other microblogging services. 10. You can do something like a comic, replacing some sentences with drawings. 11. If your post answers briefly several questions (for example, a post in the form of a list with a brief comment on each item), you can write a series of posts with links to the first post, which became their basis.
