Fuqboys are content marketing geniuses.
They know they’re on to a good thing and the more time they spend on being unique, the more it hinders their ability to get down to business.
They do it with their dates — the Ultimate First Date Scaffold — a walk, takeaway coffee (they bought a spare keepcup for you ‘cause they want you brag about how ‘conscious’ they are) that ends in a D&M at their favourite cafe they only take special people to.
Special, meaning, 27 different peeps before you.
And even their tried-and-tested Tinder message — “Hey, *reference something on your profile*. I’d love to talk about this over a drink. Tonight??“
They’re the ultimate when it comes to tweaking what’s already working, a.k.a, repurposing content and we can take some inspo from them —
1. Find a post on your IG that references a topic you could blab about > flesh it out to make a longer-form article for your blog > copy pull-out quotes from article and create Tweetables and quotes to share on your IG > create a clickbait headline, copy to your email list, SEND!
2. Find a post on IG that made people cream their pants from your words > copy & paste those same words across 3-6 Instagram stories > follow it by asking your readers their thoughts in the question box > with privacy in mind, share what they said for MORE content on your stories.
3. Take a blog article > chunk it down into a 3-part series to share on your IG > promote it on your stories and encourage your readers to DM their tips > produce a follow-up using their tips — copy, paste, post!
4. Find your best blog choc-full of tips > turn it into an eGuide or automation sequence to collect email addresses (note — I am loving and using Flodesk. I have a code to get you 50% off a subscription) > use pull out quotes to promote and to encourage people to subscribe to get your goodies. BONUS – sell the damn resource ’cause you know your work is LIT.
5. Group like pieces of content and repost as a round-up > email your list, tell them it’s what is popular on your blog this week. BONUS – sharing your IG feed content on your stories and save those stories as a highlight. They’ll be grouped together that way, eg weeknight dinners
Be like a fuqboy. Pay attention to what’s working & keep hitting it 🤩
