:: Repurposing Web Content
in Different Formats
content is not a terribly new concept. Webmasters
that picked up on the trend have benefited from
traffic surges for a while now. Repurposing
content is all about presenting the same content

same content in any number of different formats.

image or symbol that represents a business or
organization. Logos were initially used to distinguish
and differentiate products, the logos assisted
purchasers in finding the product they prefer
or have come to trust (or not trust). When product
selections were limited and items were marked
with a logo which a consumer was familiar they
would naturally assume a certain level of quality
or value, even if they had not previously used
that specific product from that vendor. Now
many companies not only have a corporate logo,
but they have a logo to represent each of their
products or product lines.

A business that makes the decision
to be environmentally-conscious will often promote
goodwill among potential customers, while making
the world a better place for future generations.
Many businesses hesitate to adopt green practices

can actually save money and bring in new customers
who specifically patronize companies that actively
make an effort to be environmentally friendly.
Many customers may even be willing to pay a
bit more for a product or service from a company
that is green.
