In today’s blog post, we will discuss a few practical ways to reuse old posts, images and other content formats to create something entirely new. Let’s get started.
Leverage blog post content generously
In today’s digital-savvy world, an effective blogging strategy can help you earn more supporters by educating them about your cause. But don’t limit your blogs to your website alone. Use its content to recreate an exhaustive bank for social media and post it for months.
a. If you have written several blog posts on one topic, you can combine them to create an ebook. For instance, multiple blogs on the importance of a monthly giving program can be put together to educate followers on how it can help your nonprofit develop a sustainable fundraising strategy and reach its end goal. Promote the ebook on LinkedIn, or online fundraising events, to keep your followers informed and educated.
b. We suggest that all our partners thoroughly understand what content their followers engage with on social media. If you think your audience disregards reading a long block of content, try converting your old blog posts into podcasts.
c. Blogs are your goldmine of information. It tells a lot about your nonprofit and all the excellent work that you do. Choose powerful lines from your blogs and share them as tweets. You can choose multiple lines from a single blog post to create more tweets.

Go creative with visuals
Hear a piece of information, and three days later, you’ll remember 10% of it. Add a picture, and you’ll remember 65% of it.
So don’t be afraid to experiment with photos!
1. People like to read quotes. Besides, they are excellent if you want to see your metrics going up because they are easily reshared. Use old images from your existing library, blog posts or crop them in exciting ways via tools like Canva; then add a quote to create a brand new post.
2. A collection of Instagram posts or photos can make an appealing Pinterest board for each of your campaigns. Again, this board can be shared on all your social media pages and also make a great throwback post to breathe more life into old campaigns.
3. Infographics are the fourth most used type of content marketing. You might be collecting lots of thoughts and opinions from your donors and stakeholders in the form of surveys. Select some insights that might be interesting to your audience and turn them into an infographic.
