Repurposing your content is just another way of recycling it. Think about it, how many people will spend hours or even days creating a blog post, report, tutorial, video, or something else, and after taking just a few minutes to post and publish it, that piece of content is done and within time will literally be forgotten about. Yes, it’s still working in the background but it could be doing so much more. So, now that the post is finished it’s time to move on to another topic or idea, right?…
This is where you need to get creative with your content. Whether it’s content you create on your own or PLR content, you need to get into the mode of repurposing it. Why? Well, for starters, it gives you the opportunity to work with content from multiple angles. For example, you might be looking for ideas from certain PLR articles or niche articles such as the ones on this site that you can write about in your next blog post. That’s perfectly fine, but this step usually involves the creation of text-based content for a post and it’s generally the last step most people will think about, including online marketers.
If you were to repurpose your content, what are some of the things you could create? How about some of the following ideas…

I’m sure there’s a few more I haven’t mentioned here, but you should be getting the point.
Let’s take a look at some examples of how I would repurpose content into different products and formats.
For this demonstration I’m going to choose a PLR article titled “Appreciate Yourself and What You Have” which is shown below:
Original PLR Article
Appreciate Yourself and What You Have
A better life has been achieved when we are no longer trying to achieve a better life. It means that we are content, as we should be, with ourselves and what we have. To be anxious for more or to envy someone else’s life or possessions is self-defeating. We are then in a constant state of frustration, always hoping and waiting for more happiness.
So, what is important? Enough, not more.
“Think of what you have rather than of what you lack. Of the things you have, select the best and then reflect how eagerly you would have sought them if you did not have them.” – Marcus Aurelius (121-180)
There is, here and now, much to appreciate. There is life itself with friends, family, and everything that is naturally before us. We just have to look around and take it in. Perhaps it is time to make a list of all the good things we have to grateful for.
Are there people in your life that you would miss dearly if they were not here? When you go for a walk don’t you see, hear, and smell, many things to appreciate and feel nice about? Like the flowers, trees, birds, and the clouds in the sky. A caterpillar crossing the sidewalk or your neighbor waving. A cute pup or child enthusiastically enjoying that moment in life.
“Whether in favor or in humiliation, be not dismayed. Let your eyes leisurely look at the flowers blooming and falling in your courtyard. Whether you leave or retain your position, take no care. Let your mind wander with the clouds folding and unfolding beyond the horizon.” – Hung Tzu-ch’eng (1593-1665)
It just makes good sense to be satisfied and at peace with yourself and others, and to enjoy life now.

Now, for demonstration purposes only… Let me repeat that, for demonstration purposes only – I’m going to use the PLR article as is without rewriting it and the first thing I want to create is an audio file of the content. You can do the voice over yourself, have someone else do it for you, or even use text-to-speech like I’ve done here in this example.
Here’s the audio I created from the PLR article above:
Next, I created a simple video. Since I already have an audio file of the PLR article, I’ll simply use PowerPoint to make an easy video. Here’s the video example:
Of course, I could stop here, but let’s make another video using the same audio file.
So, there’s two easy ways of how you can repurpose your content into different formats. However, before moving on, I would also like to point out as previously mentioned above – “for demonstration purposes only” I don’t want you to think that I’m suggesting you use PLR articles or content as is, I’m NOT! On top of that, I wouldn’t be able to build trust if I didn’t practice what I preach…
I’ve rewritten the PLR article above and here’s my unique version:
Cherish your own self and what you’ve got
Most people have a hard time cherishing their own self and appreciating the things they already have, whether it’s a little or a lot. After all, life itself is something to appreciate, wouldn’t you agree? Seeking a better life can be realized when you no longer feel the need to attain it. This simply means being more satisfied with yourself and the things you have. Sure, many people seek the opportunity to get more out of life, but anticipating more or envying the possessions of other people will not bring any greater satisfaction in your life. In fact, it could lead to an unsuccessful path or even failure. If this occurs, you may find yourself constantly being frustrated with life, and continually searching for any true form of happiness.
Is life sufficient, do you really need more?
“Think of what you have rather than of what you lack. Of the things you have, select the best and then reflect how eagerly you would have sought them if you did not have them.” – Marcus Aurelius
Look outside, we all live in the moment, the here and now. For many, it could be something great or fantastic, and for others, maybe not as much. Whether it’s a lot or just a little, good or bad, life is something that we all need to appreciate. Maybe it’s family, friends, or even something that naturally occurs, we just need to explore and absorb what’s around us. No matter how far down you might think you are, there’s always something to be thankful for, something still good, something to appreciate.
Is there a special person in your life, someone close to you, someone you would truly miss if they were gone?
Have you given life a chance? Have you gone for walk and noticed certain things around you? Things that are part of your life but you don’t always notice. Things you often see, noises that you often hear, and maybe even certain smells. Many of these things we take for granted and simply ignore, but many of these are the things in life that truly needs to be appreciated. Those flowers that provide beauty, those trees that provide shade, the birds that provide comforting tunes, and even the clouds that provide us with creative pictures. These, plus many more, are examples of life that we should cherish, even if only for a moment.
“Whether in favor or in humiliation, be not dismayed. Let your eyes leisurely look at the flowers blooming and falling in your courtyard. Whether you leave or retain your position, take no care. Let your mind wander with the clouds folding and unfolding beyond the horizon.” – Hung Tzu-ch’eng
Continue on your path towards the dreams in your life, but don’t forget to cherish the little things that are part of your life now, including yourself.

Time to rewrite and edit PLR article – 16 minutes. As you can see from my rewritten version of the article, I changed the title and added an additional 179 words to the article to help make it original. Here’s a tip for you – Did you notice the quotes in both the original PLR article and my revised version? They are both word for word. Google and other search engines are familiar with the use of quotes.
Now, let’s repurpose some random PLR niche articles and create a product using the PDF format or eBook.
In this example, I’m going to create a simple PDF report, nothing fancy, just something that will be quick and easy. Once again, for demonstration purposes only, I’m not rewriting the PLR content as I want you to visualize how fast you can repurpose. But, as usual, I will include my rewritten versions of each article towards the end of this page.
These are the two original niche PLR articles that I’m using for this example:
Original PLR Article 1
Eat healthy Foods – It Makes Sense
We all know the importance of eating healthy foods for their vitamin and mineral content. However, in recent years, scientists have discovered that there are hundreds of substances in food that have healing and disease prevention properties.
So why, if there are foods that will heal many of our common ailments, have we not heard more about them? Maybe it’s because, just as we’ve become a fast food society, we’ve also become a fast cure society. We’re always looking for the easy way to cure and prevent diseases by just popping a pill.
Just look at the increasing number of ads on TV and in magazines for drugs. Often the side effects are worse than the disease they’re meant to prevent or cure!
Wouldn’t it be better to use natural remedies? Remedies with no side effects, to cure and prevent diseases? Of course, it would! That’s why I decided to write this article. Here’s to a healthier life!
Perhaps as a child you were told by your mom to eat all your carrots because they were good for your eyes? As you grew up, you may have cynically been told by others that this was just an “old wives’ tale”. Guess what, recent studies have shown that Mom was right! Foods can prevent eye disease, heart disease, arthritis and much more.
Some Basic Science:
In recent years scientists have discovered that foods contain “phytochemicals”, which is a fancy name for naturally occurring chemicals. This is not the same as nutrients, which we all know are the substances necessary for sustaining life.
Phytochemicals have properties that can aid in disease prevention and cures. Scientists have identified thousands of these chemicals in the foods we eat and a single serving of fruit or vegetables can contain as many as one hundred different phytochemicals.
The most commonly known phytochemicals are the antioxidants. Antioxidants protect our cells from damage by toxic substances and free radicals (a by-product produced by our bodies which converts oxygen into energy). Free radicals can damage cells in our bodies which can lead to disease. Antioxidants protect the body from oxidation and reduce the risk of acquiring many common ailments.

Elements of Good Nutrition
With the amount of information that exists about good nutrition, you would think it was a big mystery. The truth of the matter is, there is no mystery involved in getting the proper nutrients that your body needs. Why should you care about getting the proper nutrients? Many people are under the misconception that eating healthy is for the young because they are growing. Tissue and cells are constantly being renewed in both children and adults. The failure for these elements to repair themselves can result in diseases of lifelong misery or worse, death. To lower your risk of developing a disease, you simply need to follow three simple steps of good nutrition.
Plain and simple, your body needs water. Being properly hydrated will benefit you from head to toe. Water keeps your cells hydrated and flowing throughout your body. It doesn’t take long to witness the benefits of drinking sufficient water. Just a week of being hydrated and your skin will have a new glow. If you need to lose weight, water can help you achieve your goal. In many instances, people misinterpret thirst for hunger. Unless it’s been a few hours since you have eaten, have a glass of water the next time you have hunger panes.
There are numerous guidelines for how much water to drink. Consuming eight glasses of water each day is the most popular guideline. People have different needs. A better indication of how hydrated you are is your urine. When you are properly hydrated your urine is almost clear. There is the possibility of water intoxication so you don’t want your urine to be completely colorless.
In addition to being hydrated, you need to eat a variety of foods. Forget fad diets that restrict certain foods. The key to healthy eating is to eat in moderation and variety. Your food choices should include a large percentage from complex carbohydrates, which is sufficient for energy. You should also consume several servings of fruits, vegetables, grains, and dairy every day. You should limit your servings of protein and fats to two or three servings each day. By including all of these food groups in your diet, you are less likely to be hungry or have cravings for sweets and other non-nutritional foods.
As long as you live in a country where food is plentiful and produced safely, you should have no problem obtaining the amount of vitamins and minerals your body needs. However, food allergies, dislikes, and illness may prevent you from eating certain foods. Some people, for example, are lactose intolerant and cannot consume dairy products. In these instances, supplementation should become a part of a plan for healthy nutrition. You don’t need a prescription to purchase vitamins, but it is a good idea to discuss your particular needs with your medical doctor. Consuming excessive amounts of some vitamins can cause toxicity and unpleasant side effects.

Now, just so you remember, I practice what I preach. The following original articles are my rewritten versions of the two PLR articles that I used for the report above.
Eating Healthier Foods – Sounds Reasonable
The idea or even the suggestion of eating healthier foods is not new, especially for those individuals who are seeking a healthy lifestyle. Besides that, most people are aware of certain vitamins and minerals that can be obtained from eating healthier foods such as fruits, vegetables, certain meats, and unprocessed foods and meals. What’s more intriguing is the fact that many substances found in certain foods have been discovered to help with variety of properties involving healing and disease prevention.
Of course, much of that doesn’t sound reasonable. Why have so many foods that can help prevent or heal certain ailments not been widely promoted? One reason might be how our culture and society has changed over the years. I mean, our society is addicted to fast food, no matter how bad it might be for you. But everything else is also leaning towards fast. Our society pushes people into making fast decisions, which also includes fast cures. People today continually seek the easy way towards everything, including fast and easy methods to cure and even prevent diseases by taking pills.
Each and every day we are bombarded with promotional materials for all kinds of drugs and other pharmaceutical wonders. However, have you ever listened to all those disclaimers and side effects which are often worse than the actual ailment or disease itself.
In some circumstances, wouldn’t the choice of using something organic such as natural remedies be better? Often, many of these remedies have low or no side effects at all, and many of them have been proven to help reduce specific ailments and in some events, possibly help prevent diseases. I think if promotions and advertising were increased for some of these remedies, it would definitely make for better choices.
If you remember and look back at your own upbringing, can you recall either your mom or dad telling you to eat your vegetables? Can you remember them telling you how good they were for your body? Of course, as you got older, many individuals simply made fun of all that wisdom and pushed it aside as some folk tale. Although, there has been adequate research and studies which have shown and demonstrated that your Mom and Dad were probably right! Certain foods do possess mixed nutrients that can help reduce and prevent a number of ailments and diseases such as cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, liver functions, muscle and bone structure, diseases of the eye, brain function, and so much more.
Over the years, continuous research by scientists has determined that a whole host of healthy foods contain certain phytochemicals, which are simply naturally occurring chemicals. Don’t let this be confused with nutrients, which are basic substances that are required for sustaining life.
Within phytochemicals are specific properties that help in a number of disease prevention and cures. Scientists and researchers have discovered a vast number of these specific chemicals that exist within healthy foods that we eat. In fact, eating a single serving of healthier foods consisting of fruit or vegetables can often contain a hundred or more different phytochemicals. That’s definitely something to consider.
What’s even more surprising is that most of the commonly known phytochemicals form the antioxidants. If you’re not familiar with them, antioxidants help to protect cells in our bodies from damage caused by certain toxic substances and so-called free-radicals (which is a byproduct that is produced in our bodies that converts oxygen into energy). These so-called free-radicals can ultimately destroy or damage vital cells in our bodies and in turn lead to sickness and disease. That’s where antioxidants come in as they help protect the body from certain oxidation and help to reduce the chances of getting many common ailments.
Just imagine how eating healthier foods can produce positive results in achieving better health. On top of that, consider what healing properties exist from eating a variety of fruits and vegetables, seeds, nuts, oils, fish, grains, beans, lentils, herbs, spices, and teas. Does that sound reasonable? Oh, the possibilities!

Factors of Quality Nutrition
While there is an abundance of information and resources surrounding quality nutrition, you’d almost be shocked to discover that there’s no real secrets about it. Realistically, no secrets or hidden formulas are involved with receiving proper amounts of nutrients that your body requires.
What makes it so important for you or any other individual to get proper nutrients?
For one thing, many individuals seem to think that healthier eating is only reserved for younger generations who are experiencing continued growth. However, both tissue and cells continuously regenerate in children as well as adults. And, if these elements and factors cannot repair themselves, the results could end up being lifelong suffering, disease, and even fatality. To help lower your chances of severe sickness or disease, you should simply consider the following suggestions for good and quality nutrition.
Keep yourself hydrated
Bottom-line, the human body requires water. Keeping yourself hydrated provides many benefits for your body. For instance, proper hydration helps to keep cells in your body functioning and flowing smoothly. Drinking proper amounts of water can also produce faster results. Your skin for example will soon demonstrate a softer and smoother appearance. If you need to drop some weight, proper hydration can be an effective step in helping reach your goals. And, many people make the mistake of thinking that thirst represents being hungry. Not the case. Continue to drink water between meals and reduce those annoying hunger panes.
There’s plenty of resources and information regarding the adequate amount of water to drink per day. The most common, eight glasses, is probably the most adhered to guideline in proper hydration. Of course, make no mistake, people are different and therefor have different needs. Another way to look at your level of hydration is by noticing the color of your urine. If you are drinking enough water throughout the day the color of your urine should be somewhat clear. You really don’t want your urine to be entirely colorless. Keep this in mind, that’s primarily just a yardstick guideline as there’s always the possibility of drinking too much water.
Healthier eating habits
Having healthier eating habits is just that, a habit. Besides being properly hydrated, you also need to focus on eating healthier varieties of foods. Stay clear of yo-yo diets that require specific food groups to be left out. The simple process towards healthy eating is to manage what you eat by including moderation and continued variety. Food choices need to vary and include foods for increased energy such as complex carbohydrates. Also, include a variety of fruits and vegetables, grains, and dairy. Protein foods and fats should include limited servings or as required for your specific body requirements. If you include all these food groups within your personal diet, there’s a greater chance that you’ll be less hungry throughout the day and reduce your cravings for any non-nutritional foods.
Adding vitamin supplements
If you live in an area where more nutrient packed foods are available, there should be no problems in getting the proper number of vitamins and minerals your body requires. Unfortunately, certain dislikes, tastes, food allergies, and illness can often keep you from eating healthier foods. For example, some individuals are what’s referred to as lactose intolerant, meaning they cannot consume dairy products. If that’s the case, using vitamin supplements might be a better alternative towards healthy nutrition. Of course, it’s always a good idea to speak with a health care professional when adding any kind supplementation, especially when it involves healthier eating and proper nutrition.
