5 Ways to Repurpose Your Popular Social Media Posts
By repurposing your top-performing social media posts, you will maximize the value of your existing content. By reusing, you are saving resources and time. Instead of constantly creating new content, repurposing takes what you already have and in turn boosts your returns.
Discover Your Popular Posts
Take a look at your content calendar and select the content that you want to repurpose. You can find out which content has the best results on each platform with PromoRepublic’s Statistics tool. Scroll through each platform for the last 3 months and highlight those that generated the most data.
In its reports section, you can see which posts got the most engagement. You can even see what types of engagement they received.
Repurposing all your best content across multiple platforms will increase your business visibility and create a more cohesive social strategy for your brand. Each platform has its favorite mediums like Instagram prefers visuals whereas Facebook leans towards linked posts and videos. Regardless, you still need to share all of your content on every social profile to get the most out of your posts.
You can reshare your posts with PromoRepublic’s Content Calendar. When posting to your Facebook account, tap repost to modify the post and share it elsewhere.
While you can post the same content on multiple platforms, it’s essential that you should customize it for each platform you’re repurposing it for:
- No hashtags for Facebook
- Up to 13 hashtags for Instagram
- 140 character Twitter count
- Professional tone on Linkedin
Repost at Different Times
The biggest reason to repurpose content is to get even more results on your top-performing posts. To fully maximize the visibility of your content, you would do well by sharing your repurposed posts at a different time of the day and different days of the month and even the year.
Use PromoRepublic’s Calendar to keep all posts for the month/year in one place. It’s so easy to manage all your profiles and content plan, all in one place!
