Empower Writers, Do Better | The People Behind the Paper.lis

Empower Writers, Do Better | The People Behind the Paper.lis | All Things Paper.li | Scoop.it

It's time to end Me-too content and let writer's write!

 

 

" Publishers often try to translate the paper model to the web and offer everything to their audiences. It leads to a me-too content explosion in which publishers struggle to cover everything in order to stay household brands."

 

Give writers a mission, and the tools to pursue it. Empower writers to make a difference in their writing - let them explore, experiment and write - long form and original content with the aim to feed the mind and soul. 

 

Great article by Paper.li publisher Evren Kiefer. Food for thought!

How Do You Reach Your Audience?

How Do You Reach Your Audience? | All Things Paper.li | Scoop.it

A few weeks back during Mack Collier's weekly #blogchat an interesting conversation took place around Paper.li.

 

For those of you who are not familiar with #blogchat, it's a weekly Twitter conversation that focuses on personal and business blogging. It's a great all-around source of information for tools, techniques and inspiration and the participant list is as impressive as the guest list and topics covered.

 

I was impressed by the conversation and engagement around the topic of Paper.li , and could it be considered "the new" newsletter - or even c-letter? 

 

I believe it can, others may disagree. Read on and decide for yourself!

Content Marketing for Small Businesses | The People Behind the Paper.lis | All Things Paper.li | Scoop.it

Content marketing is the buzzword of the week. Yet, it has always existed: under different names, spread by different means. When a farmer talks with his customers about the compared merits of different crops on the market floor, it is content marketing already. He helps his customers make better sense of the world in a language they can understand and builds goodwill in the process....

Thank you for sharing, Kelly!
Kelly Hungerford's comment, May 18, 2012 1:34 AM
That's what community is all about Cendrine. It is not only my job to reach out, lend a hand and educate where I can -- it's my pleasure!

Without our publishers, we would not have a service. It is every companies duty to support their community. We saw overwhelming support when we needed it during a terribly difficult time in March.

We truly appreciate the entire paper.li community and eco-system of actors that are involved in the community; publishers, news spotters, content creators and readers!

We will always do our best to go the extra mile. I know that you were disappointed that Storify did not pull the story. We are sometime faced with the same requests and it isn't easy. It was clear through the commenting though that although the story published was negative in tone, that the community was rallying around you. And ultimately, the dueness is on us to try to help support you and educate Steve on our process.

The Storify team is great and I really like their service. I am happy to know that they reach out as well.

Keep up the great publishing and thanks for taking part of the community blog and sharing tips and advice. The community really benefits and my hope is that more community members will share their tips as well!
Cendrine Marrouat - www.socialmediaslant.com's comment, May 18, 2012 9:14 AM
Hello Kelly, thank you for your thorough response.

Of course, I am glad Storify reached out. And I understand that it is sometimes difficult to pull out a story. But in this particular case, I think the platform should have, at least, a way of allowing users to report stories.

Thank you for everything, once again!
