What is content reuse?

When we talk about content reuse, we are referring to the practice of leveraging existing content components to create new content. These components can be text, images, videos, or any other type of content that can be assembled and combined to create new documents.
Content reuse is a key feature of a CCMS (component content management system). It helps organizations improve content consistency, reduce production time, and increase productivity by eliminating the need to create additional content. By reusing existing content components, you can:

  • Improve content quality by creating a library of high-quality content that can be used and reused to ensure accuracy and consistency.
  • Save production time because there is no need to start from scratch for every new piece of content.
  • Reduce costs associated with content creation, such as editing and production costs.
  • Enhance the overall customer experience by creating quality content that is easy to find and access.
