Repurposing content has already been discussed on the show a few weeks back but the importance it has in speeding up a marketing campaign and reducing the amount of time marketers spend doing it makes it worthy of further consideration.
For this week’s episode, Nathan Isaacs discusses how content can be repurposed into many other forms of marketing material, taking inspiration from Jay Baer and how he will turn one five minute video into 11 different pieces of content.
Nathan Isaacs began his career as a sailor on the submarine USS Baltimore before becoming a reporter for the Tri-City Herald in Washington.
He moved into marketing in 2008 and is now a senior content strategist, copywriter, podcaster and video guy at Act-On Software.
