  • Share the previously created content on social networks, and then re-share them after a certain period of time has passed;
  • Generate more than 20 snippets to fully utilize the sharing process (some WordPress themes like The Fondly have great social media support and snippet support);
  • Spin off your old content to generate new posts, it will be more efficient than coming up with new a topic every time, but remember to keep the same level of relevance;
  • Post to places like LinkedIn, Medium and Quora;
  • Don’t focus solely on blog posts, every now and then you should make an infographic or instructographic;
  • Don’t shy away from building a series of guest posts;
  • Create Slideshare presentations and turn them into a webinar;
  • Your online portfolio can benefit greatly if you design an e-book;
