[Infographic] Improve Your Content Performance Through the Art of Stealing

At one point or another, all content writers have dreamed of creating this perfect piece of content that everyone would fall in love with, and share multiple times. But often, we find ourselves stuck with the same problem: research has been done, the writing seems great, so why doesn’t the post get shared like crazy?

Here comes the moment, when you should try changing the way you work, and, for example, incorporate some stealing. No-no, not the actual stealing! Start with picking the post that you’ve recently loved and that got a decent amount of shares. And try to copy the structure and some style elements. Obviously, you will need to adjust those elements to your own topic.

The next thing you can do, is copy some fiction writing techniques from some of your favorite writers. To get the feel, see the infographic the team of Essay Tigers has created below:

The last but not least, try copying from yourself!

Sure, you’ve had some successful posts in the past. Take those, and think of a target audience segment you haven’t covered yet. You could turn a blog post series into an e-book or a podcast, a listicle into an infographic, etc. And then you can do the outreach like mad! You will certainly get your amount of shares.

Good luck and happy content producing!

    Well I have been using buzzsumo for social media competitor analysis and I think its quite helpful. The points you have shared above are worth implementing in my next campaign.


  4. Yep, great article, good tips on how to do this. I’ve done this a couple of times now, finding content that has done well on StumbleUpon. I have my rules–it has to be the kind of post I would have written anyhow, and I have to be able to create my own take on it, but then yes, I analyze the stylistic elements and headline and this has performed well for me. It’s nice to know that the effort involved in writing a post isn’t totally just throwing a dart in the dark!

  5. Thank you for your advice. I’m trying to create amazing content for my site. May you suggest me some tools on making infographics?

  7. Hello Jenni,

    Great info-graphic!

    Great info, by the way, I have the same mindset. I tried explaining to one of my friends that if you have a hard time creating content on an individual subject then you should visit a blog and inspire yourself from his work. This is not stealing like you said.

    For me creating content is the most difficult part, but by using this technique I “save” time and creating good pieces of content.

  9. Hie Jenni,

    Completely Agree on this. Love the Info-graphics you have used to explain us.

    I have tried this and still trying… It is easy to find popular post but One thing I want to mention, it is kind of big deal when we are trying to make same kind of content in a unique way.

    In short, Find a Good Relevant Content + Make it Unique + Spread that on other Networks.

    Thanks for Sharing with us. :)

  10. Thanks for your valuable suggestions, this technique of stealing is good as it saves a lot of time but writing your own unique content can improve your knowledge, writing skills as well as SEO search results.

    This is why bloggers have eBooks and classes to help those in need improve their writing style. It’s definitely a good idea and it’s not like you’re stealing content, you’re just figuring out a technique that works for you. I think this is an awesome guide to do just that.
