In the early years of my entrepreneurial life two words were shared with me that made a very big difference for my audience reach and business planning strategy. These two words are ‘repurpose‘ and ‘leverage.’
As I began to read marketing materials, it was clear I needed to create a multitude of product and service which seemed close to impossible. Upon speaking to a business coach, I was advised to repurpose materials. It was further explained that whichever vehicle comes first the underlying themes can be a basis for further content. There is no sense re-inventing the wheel. Additional cautionary advice received suggested I take the initial offering to more in-depth levels.
A few years later, another business advisor suggested I develop a sales tip sheet as a gift when someone purchases a product or service from me. His last sentence sent the wheels in motion: “Develop 10 tips and for each one develop another 10 tips – you will easily derive a total of 100 tips for your clientele.”
