Q1: Chicken or egg? What comes first – content or distribution strategy? Is it always the same? #CMWorld

A1. I think content marketing strategy is first: Why, Who, What. Then comes where. Distribution must be part of planning.  #cmworld
@leeodden

A1. Too many marketers do this: “On the day of publishing, where should we promote this great content?” #fail  #cmworld
@leeodden

A1 Strategy should come first, but if you repurpose old content, than it can come second. So… it depends. #cmworld
@tulipstrategies

I like to start with a blog post and then repurpose that content on other channels. #cmworld
@CTrappe

So true #CMWorld  https://twitter.com/leeodden/status/610840763258290176
@CMIContent

Huzzah! Thanks, Martin. I didn’t do much besides shout. #CMWorld  https://twitter.com/martinlieberman/status/610840316631994369
@AnOrchidInBloom

A1: Distribution. Your content will be created from the audience insights and where you’ll be distributing said content. #CMWorld
@jasondominy

A1: Audience comes first – always! #cmworld
@ardath421

A1: Distribution comes with the content itself. But every new piece of content is a new project in itself.. plan distribution ahead #CMWorld
@MaelRoth

A1: Content strategy typically, but if the distribution strategy is cast in stone i.e media pre-booked then vice versa #CMWorld
@KDADouglas

A1. As @mitchjoel says in http://cmi.media/thestar “Content distribution is king & queen. Both are important, also not the same. #CMWorld
@leeodden

I’m done. #CMWorld  https://twitter.com/ardath421/status/610840915679309824
@mikemyers614

A1: @CMIContent They should come at the same time for an effective strategy #CMWorld
@KPena8

A1. I think content and distribution strategies can happen simultaneously. You can build content for specific channels… #cmworld
@dwheeler11

I think content comes first. You don’t always distribute content the same way depending on copy & audience. #CMWorld https://twitter.com/CMIContent/status/610840529656418305
@flinds

A1: I think it varies. Sometimes, there is already existing content to update & repurpose for distribution. #cmworld
@iamgiarose

@AnOrchidInBloom Every little bit helps. We need jocks and athletic supporters. #cmworld
@martinlieberman

Great discussion around Content built for intentional repurposing with @leeodden in #CMWorld right now!  https://twitter.com/leeodden/status/610840707251761152
@UnionMetrics

@CMIContent A1: sometimes the start of an idea comes from a content piece or distribution avenue but it all leads down the same rd #CMWorld
@heatherAtaylor

@gonztweets Sometimes a content idea comes to me and I try to see if it fits within strategy #cmworld
@danielerossi

A1. Obviously it is VERY important to know exactly who you’re creating for before creating anything. #cmworld
@gonztweets

A1: Love the chicken/egg question. #contentstrategy has to come first or there’s nothing to promote (and no one to promote it to) #CMWorld
@mikemyers614

A1 con’td: Other times, you’re working from scratch. I think though that the best content comes with proper planning & targeting. #cmworld
@iamgiarose

A1: Trick question – defining your target audience and their interests and online hangouts comes first, then content & distribution #cmworld
@cloudpeeps

A1: While they go hand in hand, figuring out the target demographics and trends for those markets should some first #cmworld
@opensponsorship

@leeodden same here in my experience. But maybe companies should first experience that distribution is vital (and that hurts) #CMWorld
@MaelRoth

It doesn’t have to be set in stone, but it’s good to have an idea of distribution strategy when creating content. #CMWorld
@ActualKats

@CTrappe Definitely the blocking and tackling format for repurposing #CMWorld
@leeodden

@danielerossi happens to me all the time! #cmworld
@gonztweets

A1 Content comes first. You don’t need distribution if you have nothing to distribute. But both are part of overall strategy. #cmworld
@martinlieberman

@martinlieberman @AnOrchidInBloom Isn’t that the same thing?  🙂 #CMWorld
@mikemyers614

READ THIS #CMWorld  https://twitter.com/intercom/status/610838032191758336
@urbancali

I write all my content for a guy in Winnipeg named Franklin. He love hot Cheetos. then I repurpose the hell out of it. #cmworld
@BrandedCartoons

Agreed! #cmworld http://twitter.com/ActualKats/status/610841350578245632
@iamgiarose

A1: Content first. You can estimate the distribution strategy, but w/o understanding the content strategy you can’t finalize #CMWorld
@Mr_McFly

What he said :o) MT @leeodden: A1. Content strategy first: Why, Who, What. Then comes where. Distribution must be part of planning #cmworld
@renepower

Plays to format > MT @ActualKats: it’s good to have an idea of distribution strategy when creating content. #CMWorld
@ardath421

@CMIContent @Twel5 @Mr_McFly I wonder what that would look like under 140 characters.  #cmworld
@Marketwired

@BrandedCartoons flaming hot Cheetos reference early in the chat. New record perhaps? #cmworld
@CMIContent

@mikemyers614 @AnOrchidInBloom I definitely consider myself more one than the other. 😉 #cmworld
@martinlieberman

@gonztweets Glad I’m not the only one 🙂  #cmworld
@danielerossi

.@leeodden exactly! Knowing and studying the market and how to tend to it makes everything easier #cmworld
@opensponsorship

@CMIContent I can’t say that I’m against it….as long as I’m credited. Lol. #CMWorld
@Twel5

This! Then continue to refine content / strategy along the way. #cmworld http://twitter.com/cloudpeeps/status/610841257393410048
@gonztweets

@jasondominy I do think understanding the audience is key but you also need to understand the content white space for the op #CMWorld
@heatherAtaylor

A1: I agree with @martinlieberman. Need content 1st, but a strategy is needed for content & distribution. #cmworld https://twitter.com/CMIContent/status/610840529656418305
@AJutah

@dwheeler11 @AnOrchidInBloom The pun was definitely intentional. 😉 #cmworld
@martinlieberman

@Marketwired @CMIContent @Mr_McFly If we got everyone to do it, we could really freak out some feeds. #cmworld
@Twel5

A1. I like to say:  great content isn’t great until it’s discovered, consumed and shared (or acted on).  #cmworld
@leeodden

With that being said, it varies. NOTHING is cut and dry in the marketing industry. There are always variables. #CMWorld
@flinds

@Marketwired @CMIContent @Twel5 we simplify by saying: GaryJ.Nix! #CMWorld http://t.co/6U3kRFCAuC
@Mr_McFly

.#CMWorld AKA Look what just showed up in the mail! http://t.co/DmFBryjhRk
@bendgibbons

Yep, got to have both! #CMWorld  https://twitter.com/leeodden/status/610841852028284928
@mikemyers614

@heatherAtaylor If you don’t know where you’d putting said content, you can’t properly create relevant content for that audience. #CMWorld
@jasondominy

@CMIContent A1: content should be informed by what is circulating w/ audience. So distribution informs content development. #CMWorld
@hanelly

Q2: All content is not equal. What makes certain content better for repurposing? #CMWorld

@Mr_McFly @Marketwired @CMIContent I want my Diddy reference or nothing at all. #CMWorld
@Twel5

@gonztweets Exactly! if you don’t know who you’re targeting, you’ll never be able to learn how to adequately gain their retention #cmworld
@opensponsorship

@heatherAtaylor I’m going to try to be nice today. @CMIContent still thinks I’m innocent… #CMWorld
@Mr_McFly

With new content, failing to create a launch plan is planning to fail. – @amywhiggins of @zendesk http://www.slideshare.net/CMI/making-content-marketing-the-star-of-your-marketing-a-content-marketing-world-e-book #CMWorld
@monicalnorton

Create Once Publish Everywhere. #cmworld
@CTrappe

@opensponsorship couldn’t agree more 🙂 #cmworld
@gonztweets

A2: Depth of original content will enable more pivots or spins #cmworld
@ardath421

@leeodden “the best content creates conversations” – @JasonMillerCA (not necessarily online) 🙂 #CMWorld
@MaelRoth

A2: Repurposed content is best when it’s still relevant to the audience’s needs and your strategy #cmworld
@danielerossi

A2 Does it emotionally resonate with multiple groups of people. If so, repurpose! #cmworld
@Twel5

@CMIContent @martinlieberman  @AnOrchidInBloom headed where any chat with me usually goes – I’m an influencer 😉 #cmworld
@dwheeler11

A1: Not keen on the phrase, Content is King. Content is important but your audience and customers take priority. Strategy is first! #cmworld
@getsimplexity

#cmworld build your audience & work out how to reach them, find out what interests them, create timely, expert-led, relevant content!
@Chrisg_Passle

A2: Most marketers repurpose after the main content is created.  Planning up front all the pieces makes a huge difference. #cmworld
@JoePulizzi

A2. I think modular content is most amenable to repurposing. The best repurposing is actually a form of personalization. #CMWorld
@leeodden

A2: Alternatively, shallow content can allow for expansion if a topic takes flight with audience #cmworld
@ardath421

@CMIContent A2 the best content is a personal example story. Live the experience. Share the moment #CMWorld
@katairobi

@CTrappe not a fan of this one 🙂 Content has to be native to a channel #CMWorld
@MaelRoth

A2: #content repurposing takes planning. Let your creative team know that’s what you’re doing upfront. They will have ideas. #CMWorld
@mikemyers614

@leeodden Do you mean personalizing it to the audience type? I always enjoy that. #cmworld
@danielerossi

The more Cheetos dust your content has on it, the more you’ll be able to distribute it.  #cmworld
@BrandedCartoons

This planning up front thing is generally a good idea. True for content strategy, distro strategy, etc. #CMWorld https://twitter.com/JoePulizzi/status/610842306913169408
@ActualKats

@BrandedCartoons Darn it. None of my content has Cheetos dust. #cmworld
@danielerossi

@jasondominy of course! But I meant the themes of the content rather than the tactical execution. #CMWorld
@heatherAtaylor

A2: Content needs to be useful from the start. Can get mileage out of something that works across channels. #cmworld https://twitter.com/CMIContent/status/610842036330106880
@AJutah

A2. FYI, here’s the lowdown on a modular approach to content planning & repurposing: http://tprk.us/1ek8cXO #cmworld
@leeodden

@danielerossi @BrandedCartoons messy cleanup lol #cmworld
@CMIContent

A2. If you can write about it, you could narrate the piece on audio, further discuss on Periscope, create a visual for it, etc. #cmworld
@gonztweets

A2: What you repurpose should revolve around: are we helping them? Is it worthwhile? Is it relevant? Audience comes first #CMWorld
@AppleBoxStudios

A2. Content repurposing can be as simple as tweaking pieces to reach your audience in the form they prefer on different platforms #CMWorld
@UnionMetrics

A2: Compelling content w/ wide relevance & repeated value. Some of your content can & probably should be used as a reminder. #CMWorld
@Mr_McFly

@CMIContent @BrandedCartoons Have you ever seen an orange keyboard? 😉 #cmworld
@danielerossi

.@leeodden what do you mean by modular content? #CMWorld
@KDADouglas

Is it relevant? Is it timely? Is it addressing a need/want of your audience(s)? If so, it’s probably worth re-purposing. #cmworld
@iamgiarose

Favorite and bookmark this #CMWorld https://twitter.com/leeodden/status/610842724368031746
@CMIContent

@heatherAtaylor Yes, themes perhaps, but not the actual content. Good question, though. #CMWorld
@jasondominy

@iamgiarose Both plays different role in different situation…But most of the time content plays better one. #cmworld
@ankit1989

Well put. #CMWorld  https://twitter.com/iamgiarose/status/610842826625187840
@ActualKats

A2: Any content that you can add personalization to further target your audience’s wants and needs. #CMWorld
@flinds

@CMIContent A1: Content first b/c style & length of content determine most applicable audience & distro. #CMWorld https://twitter.com/CMIContent/status/610840529656418305
@SamCBays

A2: Repurposing for different audiences, markets, countries or if you know your personas/ demographics, by preferred content type #cmworld
@renepower

A2. A large content asset like an eBook, report, video, event can be broken down ala “hub & spoke” style. #cmworld
@leeodden

@Mr_McFly Reminder is key. Social nets are very noisy. #cmworld
@danielerossi

A2. Content that lends itself to repurposing is evergreen, robust, high-quality, and without too many specific dates, names, etc. #cmworld
@Marketwired

@danielerossi @BrandedCartoons wouldn’t surprise us if @JoePulizzi had one… #TeamOrange  #cmworld
@CMIContent

MT @JoePulizzi: A2: Most marketers repurpose after the fact.  Planning up front all the pieces makes a huge difference. #cmworld
@ardath421

Updating older pieces to meet new platform specifications is also a form of repurposing, if value is there #CMWorld https://twitter.com/iamgiarose/status/610842826625187840
@UnionMetrics

@danielerossi My friend, Franklin has an orange keyboard? 😉 #cmworld
@BrandedCartoons

A2. The more information you have, the easier it is to repurpose. Easier to repurpose content from a whitepaper than from a tweet.  #cmworld
@dwheeler11

Content with depth and relevance to your audience makes the best for repurposing, ie, studies, reports. #cmworld https://twitter.com/CMIContent/status/610842036330106880
@CrowdContent

@CMIContent @danielerossi @BrandedCartoons @JoePulizzi will there be an #OrangeParty at #CMWorld15? #CMWorld
@Mr_McFly

@leeodden @BrandedCartoons And a new twitter chat is born #Cheetosdust. I wonder if the Cheetos’ comm mgr will join us? 🙂 #cmworld
@danielerossi

@Mr_McFly @danielerossi @BrandedCartoons @JoePulizzi every day is an orange party at #CMWorld!  #cmworld
@CMIContent

@BrandedCartoons @danielerossi Is anyone else picturing Franklin the turtle? #CMWorld
@mikemyers614

A2 The bigger the “rock” the more pebbles you can create from it. #cmworld
@martinlieberman

@MaelRoth still reformat for channels. #CMWorld
@CTrappe

Be sure you’re creating content of value for all of your audiences, not just the most obvious ones! #CMWorld  https://twitter.com/renepower/status/610842942954147840
@UnionMetrics

@AJutah A2 Content should be beyond plagiarism and in the reach of all its would be customer. #cmworld
@ankit1989

We can’t be married to specific channels to truly Create Once and Publish Everywhere. #cmworld
@CTrappe

So important… #CMWorld https://twitter.com/CTrappe/status/610843330881159168
@Mr_McFly

A2: repurpose it for your brand. add a comment & keep it relevant #CMWorld  https://twitter.com/CMIContent/status/610842036330106880
@CrochetMichele

A2: Best evergreen content is platform/network agnostic or pertains to reoccurring client/customer Q. #CMWorld https://twitter.com/CMIContent/status/610842036330106880
@SamCBays

.@UnionMetrics Right on, it’s all about analyzing the reception of content from markets and catering to their preferences #CMWorld
@opensponsorship

A2: Any content that will be repurposed needs depth & ideally multiple themes/data points you can pull out for different angles  #cmworld
@heatherAtaylor

@CRSchaible @ardath421 agreed! It must be “meaty” and present lots of avenues for taking the piece in a new direction.  #cmworld
@Marketwired

Is posting the same content on different channels considered repurposing? That’s not my definition. It’s distribution… #cmworld
@ardath421

Q3: Are there tools/software that help you map out the repurposing plan for a piece of content? #CMWorld

And this lady knows what she’s talking about!#iKnowHeatherTaylorIRL#CMWorld  https://twitter.com/heatherAtaylor/status/610843445410799616
@Mr_McFly

Hey @chestercheetah we’re calling your name over here at #CMWorld in the name of #cheetosdust  https://twitter.com/danielerossi/status/610843203659530240
@leeodden

@CrowdContent agreed! depth is important here. juicy content deserves to be repurposed. #cmworld
@gonztweets

@jasondominy we are definitely on the same page 🙂 #CMWorld
@heatherAtaylor

@dwheeler11 Unless of course, you take twitter chats such as this one. #CMWorld
@CrowdContent

@opensponsorship Exactly! #CMWorld
@UnionMetrics

A2: It’s all about creating content that can be repurposed. Have an idea of how it can be reused or broken down before you start. #cmworld
@cloudpeeps

A2. Also, micro content like social shares: stats, quotes & tips can be assembled modularly to a larger asset like blog posts.   #cmworld
@leeodden

A2. And for ideas, here are 5 creative ways to repurpose content: http://tprk.us/1cSf2mw #cmworld
@leeodden

A3: I use @Trello to plan out repurposing content – goes with my editorial calendar #cmworld
@ardath421

A3: I suppose analytics is a start. #cmworld
@danielerossi

A3 I like @CoSchedule for when I’m planning to share a piece of blog content in multiple ways. #cmworld
@Twel5

So far: create really, really good content for people and make sure we know where to put so they’ll see it.  #cmworld
@BrandedCartoons

A2: Repurposing is pinnacle as consumers can respond to content differently depending on location and other variables #CMWorld
@opensponsorship

@CMIContent 1. If it’s resonating well 2. If it can translate to other platforms without losing the integrity of the post #CMWorld
@KPena8

A2: Long form content is better for repurposing. Short form or ‘snackable’ content is better for day to day updates #CMWorld
@stephcanarte

Checking in late for #CMWorld (High vol.) A2. Start with examining best performing content. Universal themes that continue to inform.
@UXcelsior

A3. The human brain is the most valuable tool for creatively interpreting what an audience wants into repurposing ideas 🙂  #CMWorld
@leeodden

Shh. Don’t tell anyone @Mr_McFly – I don’t want to lose my mystery status. Haha #CMWorld  https://twitter.com/mr_mcfly/status/610843585538355200
@heatherAtaylor

@ardath421 @Trello Same here! #CMWorld
@SparkerWorks

@leeodden Yes, a silly way of looking at content. Keep promoting it as long as it’s relevant. #cmworld
@joshmccormack

@iamgiarose If it is not entertaining the audiences then re-purposing will be right option #cmworld
@ankit1989

@BrandedCartoons That’s pretty much the entire social media degree program right there. Now to spread it out over 4 years. #cmworld
@danielerossi

Your up-to-the-minute report from #CMWorld https://twitter.com/BrandedCartoons/status/610843758259793920
@lindadessau

A3. But brains don’t always scale well, so mind mapping apps are handy: Coggle, Evernote+XMind, popplet for iPad #CMWorld
@leeodden

A3: I’m old school. I love Google Spreadsheets and Calendar for creating schedules. #cmworld https://twitter.com/CMIContent/status/610843557272752128
@AJutah

@ardath421 @trello going to try this out! thanks 🙂 #cmworld
@gonztweets

#boom #CMWorld  https://twitter.com/leeodden/status/610843862819450880
@CMIContent

Well-summarized. #CMWorld  https://twitter.com/BrandedCartoons/status/610843758259793920
@SparkerWorks

@SparkerWorks @ardath421 @trello Great minds and all that 🙂 #cmworld
@ardath421

@gonztweets Juicy content. Great descriptor! Yes, deserved to be repurposed #cmworld
@CrowdContent

A3. For managing content repurposing as a process, use GDocs, MS Excel, editorial cal tools: CoSchedule, DivvyHQ #cmworld
@leeodden

A3 Part of it is having having a strategic schedule. I use a similar schedule each time for disbursing content on dif platforms. #CMWorld
@AnOrchidInBloom

@CTrappe Yes! Here’s a good article on the COPE approach, http://www.programmableweb.com/news/cope-create-once-publish-everywhere/2009/10/13 #CMWorld
@MarciaRJohnston

@kilfrew here you go! http://j.mp/1GnKRgX #CMWorld
@CMIContent

@ankit1989 I don’t follow. If it’s not entertaining or engaging, why are you bothering to repurpose it? #cmworld
@iamgiarose

@stephcanarte Agreed! Long form content is easier to repurpose – in smaller chunks and even different formats #cmworld
@danielerossi

A3. There’s a great post on mind mapping for content marketing by CMI’s @michelelinn here: http://goo.gl/cbzDdZ #cmworld
@leeodden

@AJutah we love a good spreadsheet!  #cmworld
@CMIContent

A3: Trending monitoring tools such as AdStage or Google Analytics can aid in terms of social campaigns and viewing their reception #CMWorld
@opensponsorship

Yes! Good stuff from NPR… #CMWorld  https://twitter.com/MarciaRJohnston/status/610844110421753856
@mikemyers614

@CMIContent Just a good old content calendar #CMWorld
@KPena8

@AJutah I’m even older schooler than you: I use pencil and paper first 😉 #cmworld
@danielerossi

A3 Google Docs, basically. But would love to hear other suggestions for this #cmworld
@tulipstrategies

@ardath421 @CMIContent @trello I have to try this out. I keep hearing about troll #CMWorld
@CrochetMichele

@danielerossi That’s what I’m saying. Always have the same insights. We should just agree, move on to chatting about snack chips.  #cmworld
@BrandedCartoons

A3: I’m a big fan of the old school method of whiteboarding. :X #cmworld
@iamgiarose

A1: Sometimes content creation is really ideation. Subsequent versions in other formats are more fully developed. #cmworld
@joshmccormack

@CMIContent A3 Yes We can find Errors by drawing a flow chat and Discussing with panel on it #CMWorld
@ankit1989

@heatherAtaylor Agreed! #CMWorld
@jasondominy

@Haezers Yep! That’s what I’ve been doing with my Instagram content strategy. Learning what works, what doesn’t, who’s engaged. #cmworld
@gonztweets

@danielerossi @stephcanarte Long form content is easier to deconstruct, but you can go small to big too 🙂 #cmworld
@leeodden

hey @gonztweets how is your GA course going? #cmworld
@CrochetMichele

@opensponsorship What if I am still figuring out the right market? Should I shoot first, analyze later, then reiterate? #cmworld
@Haezers

Me too! #CMWorld  https://twitter.com/iamgiarose/status/610844352210993152
@mikemyers614

@iamgiarose @ankit1989  you can personalize it to entice your target audiences, add entertaining and relevant content #CMWorld
@flinds

.@leeodden The good ol’ noggin is always the most reliable source! #CMWorld
@opensponsorship

@ardath421 @leeodden we think we all do!  #cmworld
@CMIContent

@KPena8 @CMIContent What is Content Calendar? #CMWorld
@ankit1989

Sorry, #cmworld. I’m not actually around. At a #TeamMedTouch retreat. I saw @leeodden’s awesome topic and thought I’d schedule some Tweets.
@CTrappe

@Mr_McFly I agree. And planning everything before you write a word seems to suck the life out of the content. #cmworld
@joshmccormack

Agreed @martinlieberman @AnOrchidInBloom @mikemyers614! Now, I would love to see #CBJ hoist the Cup in #614 next June. #CMWorld
@bendgibbons

Index cards and a sharpie. Go analog and give your brain a chance. #cmworld
@BrandedCartoons

@cloudpeeps Work smarter etc. etc. =)#CMWorld
@UXcelsior

#A2 Make it evergreen and seasonal! Incorporate different perspectives. A blog is worth a thousand tweets/posts @CMIContent #CMWorld
@JessaH

@bendgibbons @martinlieberman @AnOrchidInBloom That. Would. Be. Awesome. #CMWorld
@mikemyers614

@CrochetMichele it’s great! Finished it up, but going to go through it once more to better absorb all the info. Thanks for asking! #cmworld
@gonztweets

@ardath421 @leeodden What are some of the best (or your favorite) apps for this? #CMWorld
@flinds

@CTrappe The truth comes out! #cmworld
@lindadessau

A3: Good old fashioned content calendar #CMWorld
@KDADouglas

Are there Oscars for this new @CMWorld eBook, Making Content Marketing the Star? Need an excuse to dress up. http://cmi.media/thestar #CMWorld
@amywhiggins

@iamgiarose haha, love this. I thought I was the only one. #cmworld
@gonztweets

#cmworld A3: Nothing beats the conference room, a 6 pack of good beer, and a whiteboard. content repurposing is a brain game.
@andrew_peron

@BrandedCartoons I totally see a Wrike comic here 😉 #cmworld
@danielerossi

@gonztweets Thanks! that is something that has been bothering me actually. Don’t want to be trapped in analysis paralysis. #cmworld
@Haezers

@iamgiarose YES!!!! I bought a roll of “white board wall paper” from amazon & turned a whole wall into a white board! YES #CMWorld
@CrochetMichele

@andrew_peron Can we make it 12? #CMWorld
@mikemyers614

@CrochetMichele @iamgiarose There’s such a thing? I gotta get my hands on a pack! #cmworld
@danielerossi

@CrochetMichele @iamgiarose there’s white board wall paper? Amazing. #cmworld
@CMIContent

Q4: Does repurposing need to be systematic? Is it better to see reactions to content before building out? #CMWorld

A3. I like to re- @buffer performing tweets. SOOO easy. #CMWorld
@UXcelsior

@iamgiarose To tell our motive in better way, If it hits in the dark it will work with less investment.  #CMWorld
@ankit1989

@gonztweets that’s awesome. I do that too with something I want to dive into – I will repeat the coursework to let it soak in #cmworld
@CrochetMichele

@CMIContent RIGHT?! #cmworld
@iamgiarose

@UXcelsior we have a lot of @buffer fans in the #CMWorld community! #cmworld
@CMIContent

@Haezers I feel you! I’ve been shaky with getting a blog up and running. I’m currently trapped in analysis paralysis for a blog! #cmworld
@gonztweets

@flinds @ardath421 @leeodden I use MindJet #cmworld
@ardath421

@leeodden thank you! I didn’t see that tweet! The #CMWorld feed is going so fast!
@flinds

@leeodden459

@CMIContent A4. I like seeing reactions on different platforms first before you take a chance on others. #CMWorld

@heatherAtaylor

A4. Customers care about different things & so repurposed content can express different meanings – that can be planned  #cmworld
@leeodden

A4: why would you repurpose something that didn’t resonate? You can plan ahead, but be flexible based on response #cmworld
@ardath421

Some brands need to be more systematic to ensure quality-control. But most would benefit from a fast-trigger spray approach. #cmworld
@BrandedCartoons

@CMIContent A4 I like to plan the repurposing into the base content creation, same team doing at once.  #cmworld

A4 You should schedule pushing out a message according to your own ‘best practices’ but monitor and adjust accordingly. #CMWorld

@mikemyers614 @Mr_McFly Like the time something of mine went viral in it’s own way. I was caught off guard but managed 🙂 #cmworld

@BrandedCartoons that’s one way to do it lol  #cmworld
@CMIContent

A4) Our existing content that has lots of interaction & engagement is a good indicator it will be repurposed. #cmworld
@CrowdContent

A5. Of course repurposing 101 is taking a large content asset & breaking it down: ebook to blog posts to social shares. #CMWorld
@leeodden

A5. Breakdown podcast into blog posts, vid clips, infographic like.  @jaybaer #CMWorld
@UXcelsior

.@heatherAtaylor True, brands can’t forget to consider their economic and social goals and weigh them into their market outreach #CMWorld
@opensponsorship

@danielerossi

@CMIContent A5 I repurposed a CEO byliner into a fun SlideShare. http://t.co/cbXB5f6lX8? #cmworld
@SFerika

A4. I would say is part intuitive and part systematic. It requires analytics plus understanding the needs of the community. #CMWorld
@stephcanarte

A5: One of the best recent examples is the #JayToday series from @jaybaer. I think he gets eight pieces from that one video. #CMWorld
@mikemyers614

@SFerika we love a good @SlideShare!  #cmworld

A6. Ehh, 2-man bootstrapped startup. Me, myself, and I. (And sometimes my partner, of course.) #cmworld

@connieurway

Same here! #CMWorld  https://twitter.com/iamgiarose/status/610848757622685697
@flinds

.@bendgibbons agree it’s my favourite type of repurposing, seeing online content evolve offline is great! #CMWorld http://twitter.com/BrandedCartoons/status/610848099192414211
@KDADouglas

@CrochetMichele No, I’m not familiar with @alispagnola. I saw done in a campaign by @MacLarenToronto #CMWorld
@stjoseph

A6. Small marketing team here too for content creation, editing, & strategy. We consult with sales & engineering for input/ideas. #cmworld
@dwheeler11

@tulipstrategies exactly, delegating repurposing strictly to the same people may have stagnant results #CMWorld
@opensponsorship

@flinds I’ve read that small groups are often the most productive. Although a slightly larger group may produce more ideas. #CMWorld
@UXcelsior

Tweet Jukebox by @alphabetsuccess is amazing for helping to add/create/boost content. I swear by this! #CMWorld
@M_chelleJH

@CrochetMichele No, I’m not familiar with @alispagnola. I saw done in a campaign by @MacLarenToronto #CMWorld
@stephcanarte

Peeps with small marketing groups: feel free to look outside of marketing for ideas, too (you probably already do) #CMWorld
@mikemyers614

@heatherAtaylor @CMIContent It’s good they’re asking! Not just wanting you to keep starting from scratch. #cmworld
@lindadessau

Unfortunately I’m a one woman show here BUT I do have several ppl I collaborate with & kick ideas around. #cmworld https://twitter.com/CMIContent/status/610848072847880192
@CrochetMichele

A6. Brainstorming with your larger team (outside of marketing) is a great way to inspire new repurposing ideas. #cmworld
@leeodden

A6: We’re a brand digital agency and I’m new biz / marketing so I set the calendar, topics, focus & frequency. #cmworld
@renepower

Q7: What percentage of your content should be repurposed? Is there a magic number? #CMWorld

A6: Our strategists keep an eye on things, mostly to make sure Marketing, Editorial & PR & any other stakeholders play nice #CMWorld
@Mr_McFly

@CrochetMichele Plus the people on this chat 🙂  #cmworld
@leeodden

@UXcelsior The biggest marketing team I’ve worked on is of 7 smallest is 2. Pros and cons of both. I like small though. #CMWorld
@flinds

@CMIContent A7: I sense an “it depends” coming up soon… #cmworld
@lindadessau

@mikemyers614 Large marketing groups, too. You want to avoid being “stuck” in a “that’s how we do it here” kind of thing. #cmworld
@danielerossi

A5 Tweet Jukebox by @alphabetsuccess is amazing for helping to add/create/boost content. I swear by this! #CMWorld
@M_chelleJH

Then bring it back in for execution! =) #CMWorld  https://twitter.com/leeodden/status/610849561213554689
@UXcelsior

A7: Exactly 47.65. I’ve done the math. #cmworld
@BrandedCartoons

@lindadessau wonder who’ll say it first… 🙂  #cmworld
@CMIContent

@M_chelleJH @alphabetsuccess I am going to hold you to this and try it out. Thanks for the tip. #CMWorld
@ideakid88

@stephcanarte she’s hilarious and super talented. check her YouTube. she did a song on the most Googled word of the day #cmworld
@CrochetMichele

@BrandedCartoons well someone had to! #cmworld
@CMIContent

@BrandedCartoons To two decimal place. Impressive. #CMWorld
@mikemyers614

A7. Magic is for magicians! Optimal repurpose percentages depend on your resources, skills and audience demand. #hadtosayit #CMWorld
@leeodden

A7: It depends (hee hee @lindadessau) #cmworld
@danielerossi

Nothing in marketing has a magic bullet or magic number. #CMWorld  https://twitter.com/CMIContent/status/610849583996874753
@flinds

A7. Enough that you have breathing room & don’t miss opportunities to continue utilizing great content. But the # varies #CMWorld
@UXcelsior

A7: Not sure you can define repurposing by percentage of content – Repurpose what has legs with target audiences #cmworld
@ardath421

i don’t think there is a magic number, if your content is engaging and informative it has the credentials to be repurposed. #CMWorld
@Elite_VS

@BrandedCartoons interesting. I’ve come to the exact same conclusion.  #cmworld
@Marketwired

A7.  If you view content repurposing as personalization vs. simply for efficiency, up to 50% might be “repurposed”.  #cmworld
@leeodden

@CMIContent Brainstorming on content ideas would be a fun chat topic – albeit maybe hard with so many industries represented #CMWorld
@dwheeler11

@CrochetMichele I will! Thanks for pointing her out! #CMWorld
@stephcanarte

@CMIContent A6: I try to push everyone on our team to think about it as we work through promotions. I’ve got a great group! #CMWorld
@webmastergirl

@leeodden EXACTLY!! I was just saying I am always inspired on these chats & love the exchange of thoughts. it pushes me #cmworld
@CrochetMichele

A7: There is no magic percentage for repurposed content. The number will, however, fall between 0-100.#SomeSay3IsTheMagicNumber#CMWorld
@Mr_McFly

@flinds I worked on a team of 55, then moved down to two. Small is so much better. Red tape is gone. #cmworld
@iamgiarose

@CMIContent Don’t believe @BrandedCartoons. He does math using an abacus made out of Cheetos. #cmworld
@danielerossi

748
@CMIContent A7 There isn’t a percentage or magic number. It’s about how much value each specific piece of content has. #CMWorld
@AnOrchidInBloom

A6: Recommend to clients it is marketing led but drawing on FAQs, sales and technical feedback #CMWorld
@renepower

A7. Core topic + X derivatives for verticals, customer segments, buying stages, channels, media types = many, many options! #cmworld
@leeodden

@Mr_McFly so profound you are, sir!  #cmworld
@CMIContent

A7: This is the ‘art’ part of the art and science of #marketing No percentages, please. #CMWorld
@mikemyers614

@lindadessau @CMIContent ea piece of content, every customer problem is a puzzle to be solved. There’s never one size fits all 🙂 #CMWorld
@heatherAtaylor

@flinds Having little marketing team experience, I don’t have a solid opinion. Thx for sharing your exp with me! =) #CMWorld
@UXcelsior

#a7 I’m gonna say 100%… if the content is out of date – update and repurpose. #CMworld https://twitter.com/CMIContent/status/610849583996874753
@JessaH

@Mr_McFly hahahaha #cmworld
@danielerossi

@CMIContent A7 For high production content there should be repurposing strategy in place, for everything else its a wait and see #CMWorld
@KPena8

brilliant truth! #cmworld https://twitter.com/Mr_McFly/status/610850022016552960
@CrochetMichele

A7) The key here is not too much! While repurposing is often effective, too much repetition is never a good thing! #cmworld
@CrowdContent

A7: I think it depends. The real question is, how much value does it provide to the reader? #cmworld
@TugceOe

Q7: What percentage of your content should be repurposed? Is there a magic number? #CMWorld
@renepower

A7. 70-30, Just kidding. For me is about creating relevant content for the community weather is repurposed or not. #CMWorld
@stephcanarte

@iamgiarose Absolutely. You get more ownership and see more of your own ideas come to life. Daunting at times, but more fulfilling. #CMWorld
@flinds

A5: Watching @g_keillor repurpose a monologue or @prairie_home News from Lake Wobegon into a book. #CMWorld
@bendgibbons

A7: Successful content should be repurposed. Top 10 monthly posts in Analytics repurposed next month! #cmworld https://twitter.com/CMIContent/status/610849583996874753
@AJutah

A7. 70-30, Just kidding. For me is about creating relevant content for the community whether is repurposed or not. #CMWorld
@stephcanarte

@JessaH So you don’t think you’d ever need new content at all? #cmworld
@iamgiarose

A6 everyone should be involved! You never know what another person sees that you don’t! @CMIContent #CMWorld
@miro_cassetta

@CMIContent nope. All down to what works for your strategy. Or 3. So I heard from some fellow called @Mr_McFly #CMWorld
@heatherAtaylor

Spot on! #CMWorld  https://twitter.com/mikemyers614/status/610850164606111744
@AnOrchidInBloom

A7) Don’t believe in magic numbers but do believe in planned repurposing coupled with a dash of customization where needed. #CMWorld

This is it! #CMWorld  https://twitter.com/ideakid88/status/610850614948560896
@stephcanarte

Trying to start a podcast. I’d like to try the re-purposing I mentioned before by @jaybaer I’ll let you know how it goes #CMWorld
@UXcelsior

A7. Great content marketing programs are a mix: repurposed, evergreen, curated & co-created content. http://tprk.us/VE7nxP #cmworld
@leeodden

A6: By default, customers, followers, our audience is the ultimate deciding factor – we just do the work. #cmworld
@M_chelleJH

@UXcelsior we’re big fans of podcasts. Good luck! #cmworld
@CMIContent

@KPena8 @CMIContent Agree, no magic number, but if you invest a lot of resources/budget creating, content should be versatile. #cmworld
@westwordrose

Agreed! Nice way to flex my Twitter chat muscles again #CMWorld  https://twitter.com/leeodden/status/610850576688128001
@heatherAtaylor

@danielerossi @CMIContent @BrandedCartoons But Cheetos dust is magic (it’s orange, after all), so that math might come out right!  #CMWorld
@dwheeler11

@CMIContent Ty Ty! =) #CMWorld
@UXcelsior

@ideakid88 exactly! focus on the numbers instead of the strategy will not end well #CMWorld
@CrochetMichele

@UXcelsior That’s awesome, please do! #cmworld
@lindadessau

Q8: How can Google Analytics help you in content repurposing efforts? #CMWorld

@CrochetMichele @cmicontent It’s almost like, “Who needs caffeine?”. Well, almost. #CMWorld
@leeodden

@ardath421 Torn jeans will be in fashion again and again and again. We just need to see when #CMWorld
@NikkBishopSmit

Start w what you do best, most, only,  first. Expertise. Cut content around channels of distribution. Think modular, serial, visual #CMWorld
@vishmili

Starting to cross streams between #CMWorld & #CNX15. Good content guidance is applicable to both.
@bendgibbons

A7:  IMO No magic and/or analytics adds value to content.  Readers decide   #CMWorld
@connieurway

A7: Everything should be repurposed but it depends on the content and the audience. Ten times to same guy, not cool #cmworld
@renepower

Absolutely 100% agreed. #cmworld http://twitter.com/leeodden/status/610850859598147584
@iamgiarose

MT @leeodden: A7 Gr8 content marketing programs R a mix-repurposed, evergreen, curated & co-created content. http://tprk.us/VE7nxP #cmworld

@leeodden

@NikkBishopSmit @ardath421 The good stuff always has many lives 🙂 #cmworld
@ardath421

A8: GA can tell you what’s working and also what may need a little help (promotion). #CMWorld
@mikemyers614

Google Analytics can help us determine what channels work. #CMWorld
@CTrappe

@CrochetMichele Yes and I wish the bean counters in companies could really understand this. Numbers are not everything. #CMWorld

I love #TwitterChats like #CMWorld, #boogiesocial and #RaganChat providing me the opportunity to hear from & connect with so many marketers.
@flinds

Couldn’t have said it better #CMWorld  https://twitter.com/leeodden/status/610850859598147584
@stephcanarte

A8: It shows what’s performing. If your out-of-date content is still getting a lot of traffic, consider refreshing & redirecting. #cmworld
@iamgiarose

A8. In GA, look at top performing pages & their topics to inspire repurposing on derivative keywords and topics.  #cmworld
@leeodden

A wholesome #contentmarketing mix. #cmworld https://twitter.com/leeodden/status/610850859598147584

@CMIContent

A8. You may love your content, but analytics will show if your target audience agrees. Data-driven decisions trump gut feeling. #cmworld
@dwheeler11

GA can identify what methods and channels are best for promoting content with certain keywords, which audiences pick it up, etc. #CMWorld

@JessaH

@JessaH Ah I see. I misread your response. I thought you were saying you ONLY need repurposed. I got it now. My bad! #cmworld
@iamgiarose

The truth this is! #CMWorld https://twitter.com/CrochetMichele/status/610851752741634048

@TugceOe

Now we’ve got your attention @leeodden Let’s come up w/ new word for ‘repurpose’: Transform. Upcycle. MagicDust. Reseed. Sprout. #CMWorld

@alphabetsuccess @ideakid88 @M_chelleJH Tweet Jukebox sounds very useful! #cmworld
@danielerossi

@CrochetMichele @leeodden @CMIContent I usually don’t but wanted today. There were no tables at my local spot. #firstworldproblems #CMWorld
@AnOrchidInBloom

A8. Marketers should continuously monitor discovery channel data (search, social, email) for repurposing & opportunities.   #cmworld
@leeodden

MT @dwheeler11: A8. You may love your content, but analytics will show if your target audience agrees. Data trumps gut feeling. #cmworld

@leeodden So finding a new use? Really making it new again by aiming at a new target? Taking a piece of the whole and reworking?  #CMWorld
@RobinJP

Hey, @leeodden, your recent ebook content for #cmworld has been great (and very popular). Where did that idea come from?
@mikemyers614

@RobinJP Customizing content to a specific audience segment or vertical is, in a way, repurposing. That. #CMWorld
@leeodden

@CMIContent @martinlieberman @Rogercparker did you? #CMWorld
@CTrappe

On the topic of GA, does anyone here watch the real time analytics during twitter chats? It’s pretty cool to see insane spikes. #cmworld
@CrowdContent

@CMIContent @Rogercparker Well, I mean, I didn’t include ALL of them. But there was a theme throughout the month. #cmworld
@martinlieberman

@CrowdContent as a cmgr, I think this would give me anxiety lol #CMWorld
@MoninaW

@CTrappe @CMIContent @Rogercparker @lindadessau Yes, I did. #cmworld
@martinlieberman

@leeodden @RobinJP Often a refocus realignment as needs change #CMWorld
@NikkBishopSmit

@morgan_hennessy Find your marketing passion and focus on it. Go deep. Be a student of data+insight & creative communication. #CMWorld
@leeodden

@MoninaW Anxiety to fuel creativity?! Or straight up stress? It’s actually quite fun. #cmworld
@CrowdContent

Sage advice…  #CMWorld  https://twitter.com/leeodden/status/610853767383117824
@mikemyers614

@Rogercparker Well, the book was essentially just a compilation of the posts. So no big changes were made. #cmworld
@martinlieberman

A7 Just the good stuff! 😉 Seriously though, if it performed well the first time, re-purpose later. If not, rewrite. #CMWorld
