In the age of social media, companies and organizations face an ever-increasing demand to create unique, high-quality content to engage their stakeholders, grow their audiences and increase their bottom line. However, creating large amounts of content on a daily or weekly basis can often be overwhelming for most businesses who are not soliciting the help from a professional PR or marketing agencies. Fortunately, companies can maximize the effectiveness of their existing content by repurposing it in new and creative ways. The following tips will not only give a second life to your older blogs, but also help you target new audiences across the social media spectrum.
1.Turn your blogs into infographics

You could then share your infographics with your followers on Pinterest and other social media platforms.
