Powerful ContentAs a blogger or an internet marketer, you already know that there are no shortcuts to providing rich and unique content on your blog to your visitors – on a regular basis. ‘Content Rules’ in the blogging world and no blogger can ever deny that. But don’t be under the impression that your content must always be in the form of articles or written words! Content can be presented in any form – podcasts, video, slide shows, webinars, seminars, ezines, infomercials, an editorial in a newspaper or magazines and so on. If you can use your creativity, you will be surprised to find hundreds of interesting ways to present your content.

So if you are looking forward to maximizing your profits with blogging or Internet Marketing, you must be flexible enough and present your content in different formats for your audience to assimilate.

In this post I am going to discuss 4 easy yet powerful re-purposing techniques that you can use.

1. Converting Your Posts Into Audio Podcasts

Some of your blog visitors might be lazy and won’t like to read each and every word in it and might like to hear it out instead. So if you can provide them a podcast version of your post or a downloadable MP3 file or some other audio formats, you attract more visitors to your blog, who would find it much easier to take in your content – on their iPod while they are jogging, while they are driving or from any audio device at their convenience.

By presenting your content in different formats, you become more versatile and dynamic as an online entrepreneur, which ultimately enhances your ability to cater to a wider group of audience thus bringing in more money for you!

Another popular way to make your MP3s viral on the web is by recording an interview with an eminent internet marketer or blogger in your niche and publishing it as a podcast on your blog – with a download option.

Balabolka is a free tool that you can use to convert any text into different audio formats.

If you are using a WordPress blog then you can use Audio Player plugin to convert your MP3 files into a MP3 player.

Or you can incorporate the below code in your website to embed a MP3 player

<embed height=”27″ src=”http://www.google.com/reader/ui/3523697345-audio-player.swf?audioUrl=[MP3 URL]” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” width=”320″ wmode=”transparent”></embed>

2.Converting Your Posts Into Videos

Video marketing have already got immensely popular amongst internet marketers. Thanks to YouTube and other video sharing sites! So are you already making the maximum out of these sites as a blogger? If not, it’s high time you do it right away.

These documents are also compatible on smart phones and other hand held devices. Do you see the immense traffic potential here?

4. Republishing Your Posts To Ezinearticles.com

Apple’s New iPad 2 TV Advertisement [VIDEO]

Apple’s advertisements are always impressive and their products add more meaning to it. Apple recently released a new ad for the iPad 2 or in other words — statement of belief. This advertisement says that “technology alone is not enough.” It’s only when “technology gets out of the way” that things become more delightful and, yes, all right, even magical.

Steve Jobs said, “It’s in Apple’s DNA that technology alone is not enough. It’s technology married with liberal arts, humanities, that yields us the result that makes our heart sing. And nowhere is that more true than in these post-PC devices. And a lot of folks in this tablet market are rushing in and looking at this as the next PC.”

HOW TO: Get Beautiful Female Models To Promote Your Brand For 5$

FiverrDon’t get me wrong with this title, this is still a Technology and Blogging oriented blog. But sometimes practically speaking we rarely care about promoting our blog creatively, right? The reasons for these would be the lack of ‘how to do’ and budget.

Now we are going to see a website that destroys those two criteria, yes the site is Fiverr. Fiverr is a place for people to share things they’re willing to do for $5. It acts like a marketplace, where you can sell and buy tasks for $5. Services that are offered by sellers on Fiverr are called “Gigs”.

How To Hire/Order The Models For Promoting

Almost half of the gigs there are from females saying that they charge 5$ to get your blog/website or products advertised by them. Normally they restrict the advertisement to one minute. Now here is the procedure for hiring a model.

#1 – First you should have an account in Fiverr, so register in it, if you haven’t. Remember you can also keep your identity anonymous at all times.

#2 – Now search your required Gigs or check the featured Gigs on the homepage. After finding a good one, click the ‘Order Now!’ option.

Order Now

#3 – If you have any doubts, you can contact the seller. Fiverr also provides the option to send messages to the seller, it will look like Orkut Scrapbook kinda thing.

Now if you are comfortable with everything, click the orange ‘Order Now’ button.

Ordering

#4 – Now you will be redirected to the payment page. Now using PayPal or your debit/credit card you can complete the payment. You are required to pay for the gig in advance. Fiverr takes $1 off of the $5 fee. Fiverr accredits sellers once an order is complete.

Fiverr introduced DamnQuickPay™, it is considered to be the easiest way to pay on Fiverr. You don’t need to log in to PayPal each time you want to order.


Some Featured Gigs on Fiverr are :

#1 – I will turn your 2D picture into 3D with use of anaglyph red and blue glasses for $5 [Check Out]

#2 – I will record a video of myself in my native spanish or english promoting your product for $5 [Check Out]

#3 – I will write your name on a grain of rice and send it to you for $5 [Check Out]

Though some Gigs are impossible, people still order them since $5 is not a big deal to them.

Fiverr is seriously a tremendous place for earning quick bucks too. If your gigs get featured then you have the chance of getting ordered easily. Remember, there are lots of Fiverr cloned websites outside, but yet the original Fiverr is trustworthy.

Barack Obama Signing iPad Using Adobe Ideas App [Video]

Obama Signing iPadBarack Hussein Obama II is the 44th and current President of the United States. He is the first African American to hold the office. At a rally in Seattle, WA at the University of Washington, Sylvester Cann IV fired up Adobe’s Ideas app and used it to pen a request for President Obama.

A sporting young man holding an iPad approached President of the United States, Barack Obama, for getting his autograph! But he was slightly surprised, but proceeded to use his finger to scribble on the iPad using the Adobe Ideas app. Adobe Ideas is your digital sketchbook, letting you capture and explore ideas anywhere you go. Adobe Ideas is an ideal companion for the professional design applications from Adobe, including Adobe Illustrator® and Adobe Photoshop® software.

Sylvester Cann IV says this HAS to be the first time an iPad has received a Presidential autograph. He also put up a mini-site for this feat, which is titled “I figured, why not ask?”. Coincidentally, President Obama met with Apple CEO Steve Jobs yesterday down in San Francisco.

Many people wonder how Adobe’s Ideas App runs perfectly fine when Apple iPad is not bothered about Flash.
