  1. Hello again. Great post, I was thinking about this the other day. I am a writer and I am certainly building an archive that I feel can be reposted. Some new readers may have missed it, or perhaps I ammend it if new info, or opinion comes through. Thanks for the tips. Veronica

  2. @Veronica:

    I smell an e-book in the making with a twist of viral marketing.

    Since you have already written the nuts and bolts, why not put a spin on it and test the waters with a bit of social media and a free e-book. you never know who might receive a copy and it could turn out to be your greatest source of lead generation yet.

  3. You right, the simpliest way to do it is to submit old content in new social networks.

  4. @Sergey:

    Lighting a new fire under some old content is all it takes to strategically roll out traffic. Worst case, if it failed to impress from using a lackluster headline. You can always rename the post and try again (despite the possible duplicate content filter).
