Yesterday I met a 13-year old boy with a devilish grin who told me he "makes a little money off his classmates sometimes."
"How so?" I asked, intrigued.
"I sell them candy," he said. "Mom buys the Twizzler economy boxes from Cosco and then I mark them up to like 50 cents each."
"Get out!" I said. "Kids actually buy them?"
"Yeah," he said. "And I also smash up Lifesavers into little bits and put them in Ziplock baggies and sell those too. People like the fact that the candy is in a different form. I convinced them that it feels kinda funky in their mouths and they pay for it!"
"Wow," I said. "You were born to be in sales!"
So, article marketers, why am I telling you this story?
Because that kid already knows something that every one of us should be thinking about and putting into practice every single day:
That in order to make something re-marketable, all you have to do is "transform and repackage it" a little bit.
Then, go out and convince people that what you have is pretty neato, and watch them become dazzled - and actually BUY IT for more money than they could get it elsewhere.
Can you transform and repackage your articles, recycle old ideas, and then re-market your valuable brand name, over and over on the internet?
Why of course you can.
One article categorized under one single topic has the potential to take on hundreds of different forms!
Be like that 13-year-old kid with a natural mind for marketing.
Take your article content and smash it up into little tasty bits of info.
Put little piles of info bits into article baggies...
and then sell some newly packaged article candy to your hungry buying prospects.
