The first step to repurposing your podcasts and videos is to create a transcript. From there, it can be transformed into so many different things!
Transcription is not a service I offer, partly because there are a ton of services out there that can do it much more efficiently.
Rev.com gets my vote for most accurate transcriptions.
Rev offers transcription services using either AI technology or human transcribers. The AI usually gives you around an 80% accuracy rate, while human is about 99% accurate. The best accuracy I've seen is the human service offered by Rev. It is more expensive but the end result is much more usable.
I've also tried these AI-only services. They are convenient and inexpensive, but accuracy is hit and miss.
There are many other transcription services I have NOT tried. Most are in the same price range as the ones listed here. When I need a solid transcript, I go with Rev.com because they are accurate and reliable.

Canva Pro - for a very reasonable monthly fee, you get a ton more features, images, etc. than the free version. Very much worth it, imho!
Easelly - an easy to use online app to create eye-catching infographics
Grammarly - make sure you catch every typo BEFORE you publish! Get this browser extension for easy spelling & grammar review.
After you repurpose your content, what's the next step?
Publishing it out to the world so it can drive traffic back to your site.
And Pinterest is an amazing platform for that! It's so good at driving traffic that it gets it's very own tab here on my Resources page.
But to make Pinterest Marketing really work, you need to be consistent and strategic about how you share your content. And that's just a PITA unless you have the right tool.
Fortunately, the perfect Pinterest tool exists and it's called Tailwind.
Tailwind helps you do everything, including:
- schedule your pins to publish (so you don't have to do it manually every day)
- leverage Tailwind Tribes (a much better version of group boards)
- analyze your results
- discover trends on Pinterest
and much more.
Frankly, I wouldn't even do Pinterest without Tailwind. It's required, as far as I'm concerned.
So if you plan to include Pinterest in your content distribution plan (and I highly recommend that you do), Tailwind is what you need.
PS - Tailwind also manages Instagram, but that requires an additional subscription. It's a great tool all around so if that's your jam, take a look at that as well.

I feel like I have tried every social scheduling tool out there and my absolute favorite is Social Report.
Social Report is a very full-featured tool that easily handles multiple platforms, accounts, and clients.
The standard plan at $49 per month allows you to manage 5 different projects and each project can have multiple social profiles.
It’s awesome for anyone who manages social media for more than one brand or client because each “Project” gets its very own calendar, settings, and users. Very easy to understand and keep things organized (no accidental cross-posting!).
Social Report Features I love:
- powerful reporting
- drag & drop calendar scheduling
- evergreen content
- content groups

An email marketing service is a must-have for anyone serious about marketing online. You DO have one, right? If not, or if you’re looking to upgrade, I highly recommend ActiveCampaign. ActiveCampaign is flexible, powerful, and yet very affordable. As of this writing, you can start for just $9 per month for up to 500 contacts if you pay for the whole year ($15/mo if you pay monthly). That’s a pretty decent number of contacts, especially when you know they only count each contact once (unlike other platforms who charge for duplicate subscribers). And for that price, you can not only send out professional emails to your list as simple as pie, you can also make your life easy with as many automations as you like. You know, things like delivering content upgrades, creating sales funnels, and all those things that build your business. And imho, the automations are SO MUCH easier to work with than any of the other platforms I’ve tried. Can you tell I’m a fan? I think you should be, too.
