Content Marketing Beginners Suggestions for Businesses: Where to Start | All Things Curation | Scoop.it

Did you know there is a lot of work that has to happen before one begins creating a content marketing strategy? There is and I am going to give you some strategies that will help you begin and also explain some important “non-negotiables”, as I call them.


First, Create a Team

 

Your business will need at the least a team of two people. This is especially true when your are writing/rewriting the content for the main pages of a website. They need to work together to create the content you need. There should be brainstorming and as they say, two brains are better than one. Seriously, this task is a two person job at a minimum.

Curation and Creation Are Both Important

Curation and Creation Are Both Important | All Things Curation | Scoop.it

How many times have you thought, “I wish I would have been a part of the Old Spice creation?” Or a part of creating any campaign gone viral? Perhaps you just wish you were creating daily content that was popular, meaningful and significant in and whatever you do.


Have you ever stopped to consider that maybe dabbling into more curation would be just as satisfying and effective?


The social space and world in general are full of people who want to create. Creating – the creative process – and fresh, new ideas make the marketing and business world go ’round. But what happens when this awesomely created content gets buried? If no one is there to collect it all into one place, it is likely to quickly go missing. That is, unless we acknowledge the power of curation.


Curation is not something for “those who can’t create.” It should not be thought of as a B-level social task. Remember, part of our jobs as chief sharers is to save people time. Curating does this...

The biggest challenge? Creating compelling content.

 

Let’s face it … content marketing is a new muscle for most organizations.

 

Most brands have been doing things the same way for so long that thinking like a publisher is, well, quite taxing. Worse yet, we aren’t set up for publishing; we’re set up for traditional marketing practices set up in the usual organizational silos. That means we might not have an awareness of the types of roles needed to succeed with managing the content marketing process...
