Drive Traffic Using Content Curation Tools

Drive Traffic Using Content Curation Tools | All Things Paper.li | Scoop.it
Those of us with websites are always thinking of ways to drive traffic there. We want to share information. We put a lot of effort into keeping our sites current, so that we can share it with other...
Kelly Hungerford's insight:

Be More Visible hits the nail on the head with a trilogy of tools that work fantastically well together to increase visibility and drive traffic; Storify, Scoop.it and Paper.li

 

 

Paper.li: use it as a monitoring tool and automatically generate relevant news on any topic or use it to support your content marketing strategy. It's an efficient tool and time saver - let it do the heavy "content" lifting for you - you take it from there. 


Scoop.it:  Scoop.it's great at extending your web presence and establishing thought leadership on a topic.


Storify: quickly turn content into stories. I like using it to gathter quoatables on Twitter. 


The three are great stand-alone tools, but they also compliment each really well. Here's are two examples of how I use the tools together. 


Paper.li - Scoop.it: 


I use my Paper.li as a MONITORING tool, and then SCOOP articles and content of interest into my Mag on Scoop.it.


This "All Things Paper.li" is an example. Instead of checking Google news, alerts, RSS, daily, I go to my Paper.li paper and check what's new then decide from there where the content goes: a tweet, an editorial calender for blog posts, my Scoop.it...   It saves me time from scouring the web. 


It's quick, easy and efficient way to stay on top of news. 


Paper.li- Storify: 


I use Paper.li very often to creating Event Papers. I love using the service to build awareness moving up to an event, covering what's happening during the event and then posting the "best of" after the event.


During the event I always create a Storify to capture what's happening and share that during and after.


I love Storify for captuing what I call "quoatables" - tweets that can be used to give context about the event, highlight great speakers and convey the emotion and energy of the event. I also make Storify's for ÎweetChats. They are great for sparking ideas for blogposts!

Some Thoughts on Monetizing Twitter Chats and Getting Sponsors

Some Thoughts on Monetizing Twitter Chats and Getting Sponsors | All Things Paper.li | Scoop.it
As we close in on March, #Blogchat will have its 4th birthday, having started on March 22nd, 2009.  And over the past 2 years I don’t think any chat other than probably Jessica Northey’...
Kelly Hungerford's insight:

Paper.li was a #blogchat sponsor this past month of December. The partnership went off without a hitch and both Mack and I were really pleased with the sponsorship and how it turned out. Mostly we were pleased that it was good for both our communities. 

 

Mack's insight on getting sponsors for tweet chats applies to any sponsorship. Bottom line - it can't be just about the money.

Most Viewed Posts in 2012 - Paper.li Community Blog | All Things Paper.li | Scoop.it
Kelly Hungerford's insight:

2012 marked the first full year of the Paper.li Community Blog. I started this blog in the summer of 2010 with a simple goal; to shine the spotlight on the amazing people we have in our community.


I wanted a place where we could share the knowledge of our own community with the community and beyond.  


This blog has been blessed with amazing contributions from the community and this year's success blew my socks off. If you haven't taken the time to read some of the posts, I've listed the top 15 in Interviews and How-tos for the year. 

 

Thanks to all of you who contributed and to Stephanie Booth, Liz Wilson and Evren Kiefer for generously contributing time and expertise.

Via Martin (Marty) Smith
Kelly Hungerford's insight:

I saw this tweet today from Marty and laughed. He's got such a great sense of humor. I highly doubt that his blog isn't ready for 2013. From what I enjoy from his blogs, he is the master of content and keeping readers loyal, so my guess is that he's got it all under control. 

 

But in any case, we hope to see him and anyone who wants to exchange ideas, tips and best practices as well as share in some festive seasonal fun!

 

Paper.li joined forces with Mack Collier's #blogchat for the month of December and we've been having a blast. It's an early wake-up call for Switzerland - 3am, but it's well worth it! Join us and check it out!

Great post from my friends at Paper.li (@SmallRivers) on how to get your blog ready for all the new stuff happening now and in 2013. Is your blog ready for 2013? Not until you've read this excellent post from Paper.li. 

Kelly Hungerford's comment, December 11, 2012 2:54 PM
Thanks Marty, much appreciated. We're having such a great time with Mack and the #blogchat community. There is amazing knowledge share and fun going on and it's been an incredibly rewarding experiencing bringing the two communities together and I'm learning a ton. Join us if you can!
Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, December 15, 2012 8:27 AM

I previously curated this piece into Curation Revoluiton, but, on the eve of Christmas, I'm moving it to Startup Revolution because startups need to focus on making content as strategic as every other aspect of their marketing. If you are a startup is your blog/content strategy ready for Christmas?

Ileane Smith: Blogging and Building Virtual Communities | The People Behind the Paper.lis

Ileane Smith: Blogging and Building Virtual Communities | The People Behind the Paper.lis | All Things Paper.li | Scoop.it

An interview with Publisher Ileane Smith from BasicBlogTips talking about community building and increasing your following via Paper.li.

 

***Ileane initially created her Paper.lis to give bloggers the recognition she felt they were missing out on. Now she is finding that her papers not only promote and connect people, but also act as the heart of virtual communities.

 

 

***

-Paper.li brings people

- it recognizes those that we all seem to think are influential, but weren’t getting the recognition they deserved.

-It’s a great model for how a community can begin, although, of course, it might not work in every case. -To build a community there needs to be a shared passion, and people. BSMH has both, and Paper.li has been at the heart of bringing us together.

 

Ileane also share her top 10 blogging tips: 

1. Read and comment on other blogs.
2. Learn as much as you can about your topic.
3. Start establishing relationships with other bloggers.
4. Join forums and social networks to help you establish those relationships.
5. Use Google Analytics to track and analyse your blog traffic.
6. Ask your readers what type of content they like getting from you best.
7. Always bring your unique point of view to a given topic.
8. Promote your content via a Paper.li and on other social media.
9. Don’t stress yourself out over page rank or keywords — remember you just started blogging.
10. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.

 

And tip n° 11: never use profanities!
