Care and Feeding of Networks & 10 Must Follow Scoopiteers

Care and Feeding of Networks & 10 Must Follow Scoopiteers | 21st_Century Good: Social and Content | Scoop.it

This post was fun to write. I spent the morning writing about the importance of thinking digital first. This post shares 5 tips about the care and feeding of possibly your most important asset - your network of support, advocacy and content. If your content network isn't the most important thing no one really thinks about very often I don't know what is. 

Since it isn't fair to tease such a list and not share, here is my list of 10 Must Follow Scoopers:

@Robin Good 
@Guillaume Decugis
@Ally Greer 
@ janlgordon 
@Jesús Hernández
@Brian Yanish - MarketingHits.com
@Karen Dietz
@Thierry Saint-Paul 
@Neil Ferree
@Ana Cristina Pratas  

If you want to see what each of these great content curators has taught me you will need to read the post (since I'm not one to spoil a tease :).

Brian Yanish - MarketingHits.com's curator insight, November 9, 2013 12:56 PM

Totally agree with Marty, each of these Scoopers uses Scoop.it to build their readership.  That's right they are using Other Peoples Content (OPC) that they curate to build their own following and traffic to their channels be it a website or social network.

The 21 New Rules of Content Marketing [INFOGRAPHIC]

The 21 New Rules of Content Marketing [INFOGRAPHIC] | 21st_Century Good: Social and Content | Scoop.it

"In this new world of Internet marketing, it's not about being "optimized," but being "easy to find." That sounds like a subtle difference, but it couldn't be more profound. One has to do with page tags, keywords, and trying to manipulate incoming links; the other is about generating interesting ideas, starting discussions, and being a prominent voice in your market or industry. It's the difference between screaming nonsense through a microphone and having journalists come to you for an expert opinion. This infographic sets out the 21 NEW rules of content marketing that every modern marketer should know. If you want to maintain a high search engine ranking and use content to keep targeted buyers coming to you, this is information you can't afford to skip".
