Simply publishing a video on YouTube is not enough
Video takes time – all marketers understand this concept. You spend hours working with your video content partner to create an outline, work on the script, create the storyboards, film the actual video, then you spend countless hours going back and forth on revisions and rounds of video edits. The video is finally complete, and you hit publish. But this is actually doing a disservice to the countless hours you just spent finalizing the video – a single piece of video content can be so much more than the one video upload.
Sure – you’ll still get views, and possibly some engagement with your content. But, what if you could multiply the reach, engagement and ultimately, the success of your video? We have your ear now!

2. Shorter Video Clips
Shorter videos work on social media - period. Longer form videos have their place, but it is not social. When you’re scrolling through your multiple feeds, you’re much more likely to watch a short clip, as opposed to a 5-10 minute visual brand story. There are a few ways to cut up your longer videos, and repurpose them into shorter clips – you can create GIFs, cinemagraphs, shorter social videos, or even display ads!
Writing a blog post is a process – you research topics, create an outline, write the post, then go through edits. As I write this blog post – I totally understand how time consuming this could be. But, if you turn your video into a blog post, you can skip a few steps. Take the transcription from your video, and create a blog post from that content! You can re-work the transcription the make it sound like a blog, additionally you should add stats, additional content, video clips, links, etc.
4. Visual, Graphic Content Pieces
This is one of the simplest ways to repurpose your content – turn your video into a series of graphic content pieces. You can take stills, and turn them into great looking photos or images. Or, take certain quotes or stats, and create some sort of designed graphic that you can use as images on multiple platforms. You can also summarize concepts, and create short animations.
5. Interactive Content
Quizzes are one of the most popular forms of interactive content – hate it or love it, take it from Buzzfeed and the popularity of their content. This piece of content is a bit more time consuming and difficult to create, but it is one of the most useful. And not every video can work as a quiz – animated explainers, how-to videos or other educational content work best.If this still sounds like more work than you’re ready to take on, partner with a video and visual content agency. Partners, likePop Video, help you maximize the value and power of each video. For more ideas on how to repurpose your video content, check out this blog:How to Successfully Upcycle Your Video Content.
