A story can move us, make us feel like we’re part of something special, feel like we belong. Telling a business story requires little more than thought."Read the full article to find out more about: - Why should you tell your business story? - The "right" point of view - Business storytelling 1.0 - Your business story - told by your customers - Collect stories

7 Qualities of Highly Effective Content Curators

7 Qualities of Highly Effective Content Curators | Blogging | Scoop.it
Every time I visit the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City, I see something I’ve never seen before. In fact, t’s considered the most influential museum of modern art in the world. With that in mind, meet Klaus Biesenbach. Klaus holds the title “Chief Curator at Large” at MoMA. If you’ve visited the MoMA and walked away impressed (like I have), Klaus has a lot to do with that.

As content curators, we should all aspire to be like Klaus. After all, wouldn’t it be great if our content collections drew as much interest, respect and admiration as the collections at MoMA? In order to achieve this feat, we need to become highly effective content curators. In other words, we need to curate Internet content as we would fine art.

Let’s consider seven habits of content creation that would make Klaus Biesenbach proud. Continue reading →

How to Create Videos to Capture Your Audience

How to Create Videos to Capture Your Audience | Blogging | Scoop.it

When it comes to marketing strategy, videos are powerful. How powerful? On Facebook, for example, videos are shared 12 times more than non-video posts. And let’s not forget YouTube, the second largest search engine in the world (after Google, of course). The ability of videos to increase user engagement is unsurpassed.


According to YouTube’s statistics page, they get over 800 million unique visitors each month, users view more than 4 billion hours of video each month and upload 72 hours of video every minute. That’s a lot of potential for your video....

Best WordPress Plugins: 40 Experts Share Top WordPress Plugins

Best WordPress Plugins: 40 Experts Share Top WordPress Plugins | Blogging | Scoop.it

Best WordPress Plugins: 40 SEO and WordPress experts reveal their 5 favorite free and Premium WordPress Plugins. Amazing content, check it out....

Ileane Smith – BasicBlogTips

This question comes at a really good time because I switched themes recently which caused me to take an even closer look at the plugins I use on Basic Blog Tips. Before I give you my five favs, I want to start off by saying how important it is to have a great theme with basic features built-in. This will make a huge difference in performance and greatly reduce the number of plugins you need to install.

My current theme is Genesis and I use a child theme from Appendipity called Showcase. So right out the gate I don’t need to install any social sharing or following plugins because they are integrated within Showcase.

With all that said, it’s still challenging to pick 5 plugins but I’ll give it a shot.

1. Anti-spam – is the newest one I’m testing to cut down on the time I spend moderating comments. I almost don’t want to give that little secret away because somehow whenever a plugin like this gets popular, the spammers figure out a way to work around it. But it’s so good I have to share it with you guys.

2. AuthorSure – is a plugin that takes all the fuss out of setting up Google Authorship, which is essential for any blog with multiple authors and for bloggers who don’t  want to mess around with code. It adds a nice looking author bio box and a lot of other options as well.

3. Pretty-link Pro – is another must have for anyone doing affiliate marketing. It makes your links easier to remember and it’s also great for YouTubers and Podcasters who want to share links on their shows.

4. WP-Optimize – is a great one to have around. If you haven’t used this one before, the first time you run it, you will most certainly notice that your blog loads faster.

5. P3 Plugin Performance Profiler – will come in handy when you see that your blog is loading slowly. This one will tell you which plugin is causing the issue and give you a complete rundown of the time it takes for each one to load. When you see the load times, I know it will be hard but just un-install the one with the longest load time and you’ll be thankful you did!

60 of the best global PR blogs

60 of the best global PR blogs | Blogging | Scoop.it

Today, after lots of messing around with data, we’re pleased to be publishing an Inkybee view of 60 of the best PR blogs in the world.Why? Well, everyone loves a list. And, there are certainly a few of similar lists about at the moment. But, as far as we’re concerned, the primary reason for doing this it to experiment a bit with the powerful technology behind Inkybee.Last month Cision published a list of their Top 50 PR blogs and earlier this year PRWeek published their “Powerbook” of the most influential practitioners in the UK PR industry.We’re not competing with these publications and we’re definitely not proclaiming that this list is the definitive list of the best 60 public relations blogs on the planet. Quite the opposite. We recognise that this is a subjective process and ranking could be done in many different ways. We have been through a rigorous, objective methodology which we’ve detailed separately, but it can never be definitive. Plus, we have focussed sharply on “Public Relations” to the exclusion of blogs with wider coverage of marketing and social media....
