The key here is to find a middle ground, what content can you post consistently that is sustainable? Video content is able to play a key role as filmed footage can be edited or repurposed to be used multiple times.
Creating content that can be repurposed for multiple applications is essential as it cuts down on planning and production of additional content. Further more if the content is planned well you can reuse it on multiple platforms and even ramp the content into larger or smaller pieces. Video is the perfect medium as every shoot can be planned to produce multiple videos from.

To ensure your repurposed content remains relevant, keep your content evergreen.
