Recycle Your Article Electrons

EARTH DAY was this past weekend where we are reminded to care for Mother Earth. :-) I thought this would be a great (and just a little cheesy) opportunity to remind you of the benefits of recycling your article electrons!

Recycle Your Article Electrons

What does this mean to you, the expert author? It means today is a wake up call to not let articles that you’ve got sitting on your hard drive (in electron form) go to waste! Let other humans benefit from your articles & expertise by putting a percentage of them into syndication today to attract more qualified visitors back to your website while enhancing your credibility and profile in the market as an expert.

Any time you can repackage or repurpose existing content, you’re achieving leverage!

Where to find content electrons you can recycle by submitting to our website?

* Start with your website or hard drive and review the articles you’ve already written. Take a percentage of them and submit them to us / put them to further work for you.

* Review your past FORUM or BLOG posts and turn some of them into articles.

* Review your past customer service emails, remove the private client data, and your answers to your clients most pressing problems makes for great article content!

* Check out past audio interviews you’ve made, have them transcribed and you’ll have an instant set of articles to put into syndication.

* Got old books, newsletters, ezines, ebooks, or any old print or PDF document that is out of date or not getting you a high enough return? Recycle those electrons by syndicating the articles on our site.

See the theme here yet?

Why struggle to create brand new articles when you could recycle existing content you already have?

It’s only have you have repackaged and recycled all of your existing content would you look to create new articles to syndicate…. :-)

Happy Earth Day! “Be wise, recycle your unleveraged article content and submit your best original works this week and we’ll send you oodles of qualified visitors to your website in return.”

Why let your old article electrons go to waste?

I have been doing this for a long time. ;-)

Most of my articles got their start as either an email response to someone, a blog post, or a forum response to someone.

I take the rough draft, as I view it, from my original use, and then I work that into a presentable article for distribution. Some responses to email queries can be worked into a few articles.

Anything that can be perceived as helpful to someone else can be worked into an article.

Chris, you constantly amaze me with your promotional creativity. You can be my friend. :-) As an internet newbie, I have only begun to blog and at EzineArticles, I am discovering a sense of community that has been sorely missing in my pre cyber life. Just responding to the previous blog entry yesterday and viewing the responses to my responses forced another response from me. The dialog among a half dozen of us is sufficient to launch new ideas, and articles from everyone participating in the discussion.

While I was catching up on my EzineArticles blog reading, I was moved to comment on most posts back to March in some helpful or insightful way. This morning I checked to see if my comments had been posted and if there were any responces. The responses to my comments were exciting and truly inspirational. I then went to the previous blog entry and about 4 or 5 back, only to find no further discussion. So here is my lesson for blog post responders. Go back into the archive if you are truly interested in what others have added to any conversation and respond to that when you are moved to do so. An idea should not die because it is a few days old.

Lastly, it is vividly clear to me the more discussion we create over any idea, the more material there is for fresh article content. For example, I’m just about ready to write an article about creative blogging. A subject about which I knew nothing yesterday. In addition I have good material for another on audio publishing. Being visually impairaired I have special insights :-) on this subject.

Add to all this, the Email Chris sent out this morning encouraging more discussion of the most recent post and I am excited out of my mind. I am so looking forward to whatever comes of this. This is my idea of communoty teamwork and I cannot hide my approval.

This is a most interesting article! Certainly, food for thought.

I have no doubt, that you’ll be hearing back from me!

Although I don’t have a ‘website’, I do, have a ‘blog’, on Blogster. With your

permission, I would like to ‘Type’ a link to ‘EzineArticles’, into my ‘blog’, I doubt if I

would be ‘allowed’ to put a banner in. Let me know, as I think a lot of people would

appreciate your articles.

Kind regards

Great idea! I’m a recycler when I used to take home glass bottles and kept a bag under my desk to save paper. I still fax on already written on sheets-not to mention the scrap paper I use to write my articles!
I’ve accumulated many on Career Development, Transitions, how to get the most from Job Fairs-I used to work in a college Career Center. Now, my focus is midlife women in transition…Some boomers, some empty-nesters-all facing changes in career or other parts of life!
Need to compile these articles.
Marcia the Transitions Chick!

I loved to accidentally find out about It`s great to read the ideas and expertise tips from the other readers.
However, I have a question for you Chris. How do you make money from getting articles from us? I don`t get it. Would you like to share the secret with us?

Don’t forget to recycle articles that have long since expired from any agreement you previously had with a customer. Recently, I company I used to work for, canceled one of their many training programs. The manual that made up this program was written by me. It basically consists of a bunch of topics that can easily be turned into articles. I have received permission from the company to do as I wish with the manual…I wish for the manual to turn into between 100-150 articles!
