Curate and Monetize Your Best Audio and Video Contents with Pivotshare

Curate and Monetize Your Best Audio and Video Contents with Pivotshare | "Biz Mobile Marketing" | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Pivotshare is a web platform which allows you to create a branded web site where you can curate, promote and sell your best digital media video and audio files. 

 

The service accepts .mp4, .mov, swf, .flv, .avi and .mp3 files for upload and it lets you set the price and the business model (subscription or pay-per-view or a combination of both) that you want to use.

 

On Pivotshare you can brand your channel with your logo and customize its look and feel, and you can also "bookmark" specific "spots" inside your audio and video content.

Content on PIvotshare is accessible by both desktop computers as well by smartphone and tablet devices and it has the ability to memorize, for the user, where a sesson is left, so that it can be picked up next time he logs in.

 

You can set up some of your content to be free and some of it to be accessible only by paying for it. Each channel can be fueled by more than a contributor and you are free to decide who will team up with you.

 

There are two delivery formats available to curate and organize your key assets: a) the Showcase (ideal for ten items or less) and b) the Library (for collections of 50 or more items).

 

Revenue-wise Pivotshare takes 30% from a Channel’s revenue, and passes the rest to the Editor and Contributors of that Channel.

 

To use the service there is no upfront cost.

Search and Curate News Stories on Specific Topics with StoryCrawler | "Biz Mobile Marketing" | Scoop.it

Robin Good: StoryCrawler is an upcoming news and content curation platform which allows you to easily track an unlimited number of topics / keywords and to curate selected ones for publication, both on the web, via RSS feed or email.

 

Selected news stories can be, tagged, categorized and fully edited in each and every aspect before being published.

 

Inside the Storycrawler backend, a curator can configure and save an unlimited number of persistent searches monitoring online mentions of events, people, brands inside specific types of content sources (e.g.: social media, news, blogs, etc.).

 

Storycrawler makes your curated news stream available as a RSS feed, as an embeddable javaScript or iFrame code snippet, besides publishing your content directly on your account pages and providing direct sharing options for Facebook and Twitter.

 

From my own limited experience in testing an "unofficial" early Beta version of Storycrawler, it looks like the basics features are all in place while the UI, usability and final output formatting options still having some work to do.

 

P.S.: The platform seems to be targeted at medium to large size, enterprise companies and does not provide for now indications of its pricing plans. You can contact a StoryCrawler representative here: http://www.storycrawler.com/contact/

 

Promising.

Curation Is As Important as Creation

Curation Is As Important as Creation | "Biz Mobile Marketing" | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are interested in understanding how "content curation" differentiates itself from simple re-sharing and re-blogging here is a great article by Chris DeLine.

 

Great advice for anyone wanting to become an effective content curator: “Whether in tweets, in blog posts, in podcasts, or in newsletters, be ruthless with your attention.


...

 

Some adopt a strategy of blanket-curation, throwing everything new or fresh or remotely interesting online and letting other consumers make their own value distinctions.

 

Others assume the role of tastemaker, selectively making the decisions themselves.

 

Both have their place, but the former contributes to what Jonathan Haidt calls “the paradox of abundance,” which he says “undermines the quality of our engagement.”

How many content-overload websites can you monitor before you become overwhelmed by volume? How many share-explosions does it take before you remove a friend from your Facebook feed? How many Tumblr pages can you pay attention to before the reblogs become a blur?

 

...

Thoughtful, honest, and caring curation isn’t entirely different than creation.

 

After all, the topics you choose to research, to blog about, and to discuss with friends all begin with the process of sifting through the media abyss yourself and singling out worthwhile information."

 

What really counts is to create content that is useful, meaningful and helpful for others, whether from direct hand authorship, or by curating the best existing resources.

 

Insightful. 8/10

Find, Curate and Recommend Your Favorite Products with Referly Great-Looking Collections

Find, Curate and Recommend Your Favorite Products with Referly Great-Looking Collections | "Biz Mobile Marketing" | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Referly is a revolutionary curation platform offering the ability to create great-looking thematic collections of products, that you can promote and share online.

 

Referly offers a gorgeous user interface, which makes it very simple to find and collect any kind of product you may be looking for, as well as to create great-looking shopping front-ends.

 

Through an integrated search engine you can rapidly find fashion items, photo and video tools or your favorite books and start listing them inside your most appropriate collection.

 

In your collections you can easily edit individual items, resize them or drag them easily to new positions. It is next to impossible to make a collection look ugly.

 

Referly connects to a large number of products suppliers and it also allows you to earn rewards when you generate sales on products from anyone of these sites: http://refer.ly/merchants

 

You can also endorse, collect and share just about any product you find online by using the dedicated bookmarklet.

 

I am truly impressed by Referly, as I see an addictive opportunity both for passionate connoiseurs to share their know-how as well as for any product seller wanting to taste the future of trust-based, realtionship marketing.

 

This is the future of shopping.

 

Here is a sample collection I have just created of tools for videomakers: http://refer.ly/p/d965aafaf92511e1a4ec22000a1d0d51/collections/show/videomaker/31c2f2c4f92711e1a4ec22000a1d0d51
