Introducing The Medium Conversation Prism To Generate An Infinite Stream Of Fresh Content

  • 6 min read

This strategy is used by Medium’s Top writers and the world’s most prolific writers.

If you want to create an infinite stream of fresh content you have plenty of options at your disposal to choose from as a new blogger.

You can do your regular written posts but also add audio, video, or other visual formats.

Actually, it can be in your interest to do more than one.

When you create a piece of content in one format, there’s a huge opportunity there to repurpose that content and share it again in a different format.

You can use that as a way to promote the original content or to deliver the same message to a completely different audience.

You can turn your Medium blog post into…

  • video.
  • an infographic.
  • audio.
  • video with slides.
  • newsletter
  • social media content by sharing quotes and graphics.

The possibilities here are endless.

Concrete example:

I took this popular short form post…

…and turned it into a short video of 60 seconds for YouTube as well as for TikTok.

Repurposing is one of the most valuable secrets of content creation.

It’s such a simple and effective way to extract additional value from your existing content.

Plus, you can grow your audience by reaching people who may prefer a different format.

If I could start all over again I would change this one thing…

If you feel already overwhelmed with writing on Medium and the idea of adding another channel, I can totally relate.

I felt the same when I started blogging 23 months ago.

If I could start all over again I would definitely not put all eggs in one basket (Medium) and focus on Medium and only Medium.

From day one I would promote my original Medium content and deliver the same message to a completely different audience on other platforms to be louder (!) and make some noise.

NOISE! Yes. That’s what you need to make in a sea of noise where you’re competing with millions of other bloggers, new writer.
