Repurposing content- Secrete of the super bloggers On this episode I talk about one well kept secrete of the super bloggers and content publishers that we can all use - Repurposing content! Why would you want to repurpose content? - If you are looking to increase the volume and frequency of content published on your blog or website, you may want to consider republishing content. This includes looking at topics you have written about from different perspectives, so it is the same content, but from another angle or with a spin. Lets say for example you blog about the recent arrival of PayPal in Nigeria. You can easily repurpose that content by looking at the use of PayPal first from a buyer’s perspective, and then again from a sellers perspective. - If you want to revisit content you produced a long time ago, or update it to make it more relevant to the present, you may want to repurpose content. The chronological nature of blogs means usually a lot of content gets unseen by your readers because the content deep in your archives. You may want to bring that back to the fore so that visitors to your blog can see the content. There are several ways of doing this depending on your blogging platform; such as featuring the blog or creating a ‘static page’ for it [in Wordpress], however you may simply re-write the content. - If you are creating content on multiple platforms, then you may want to repurpose content across those platforms. For example, you may want to repurpose content across your blog, YouTube channel, Podcast, Social Media, e.t.c. This is very popular with superstar bloggers. In fact, many of them automate the repurposing across these many platforms and link it all to their main website. This does wonders for search engine optimisation [SEO]. However when repurposing content, it is important not to just cut and paste, but rather to re-present the content in a fresh way. This episode was supported by: Get a Life Balanced!

How to generate massive organic traffic to your blog/website/product by marketing in the right place On this episode of GidiPodcast I talk about how to get organic traffic to your blog/website/product landing page by marketing or promoting it in the right place. There are two major factors to consider in the generation of organic traffic via marketing; - Eyeballs, and lots of them; you have to market where your potential customers are, otherwise nobody will see your product. Seems obvious, but the key here is ‘potential customers’ - Your core idea must solve a problem otherwise nobody will care. You must have at least both of these factors above in order to generate the large organic traffic you desire. If you have one and not the other, it wont work. Say you have many eyeballs seeing your product, but it doesn't solve a problem for them, thy wont care. On the other hand, if it solves a problem, but they don't get to see it because your product is marketed somewhere else that they never go, no organic traffic for you. A good example of this in Nigeria is the mobile toilets business. It solves a problem and the original proprietors marketed it perfectly. - What is the need? Well, everyone needs to use the toilet at given intervals. There is however a scarcity of public toilets in many parts of Nigeria. Where large numbers of people gather for a long period of time, this becomes an issue. - Where is the right place? Not only do you need it to be a place where many people gather, they have to be able to access the toilet right? They marketed their mobile toilets to large events like wedding parties, festivals and public parks! High traffic yet accessible areas. It goes without saying that the mobile toilets business in Nigeria is a runaway success - a result of a product that solves a problem and effective marketing.
