Evergreen blog content is information your audience will find relevant any time of the year.

Holiday and occasion content is also evergreen because you can use it over and over when those special days around.

Include “occasion content” like back to school themes and summer travel ideas in your newsletter.

The Evergreen Post Retweeter plugin allows you to automate tweets to send to your Twitter feed. For example, if you create a category for “winter content” during winter months you can change the settings to tweet out those relevant posts five times a day.

Another option for a social share plugin to promote evergreen content is Tweet Old Post/Revive Old Post:  “This plugin helps you keep your old posts alive by automatically sharing them and driving more traffic to them from Social Networks. It also helps you to promote your content. You can set sharing interval and number of posts to share to drive more traffic.”
