Every piece of content your business has produced is more valuable than you think. Finding content that can be repurposed can be more cost-effective and time-efficient than creating brand new content from scratch. Repurposing content allows you to introduce your brand/company to a new audience and can help to establish authority on additional platforms you’re not currently on.

In addition, when content is repurposed and shared in multiple ways, it can target a wider audience and increase the chances content will be shared across the web. Below we’ve identified how to make existing content more valuable for SEO.
