5 Best Practices Every Content Curator Should Follow

5 Best Practices Every Content Curator Should Follow | Collaborative Content-Curation: new Forms of Reading & Writing #curation #journalism #education #e-learning |

I selected this piece by Steve Rosenbaum for Mashable because there are some excellent tips to make you a trusted source, build a loyal following and add value to the community.


I don't know about you but everytime I read a post about curation, I see something different, this one is from someone who knows what he's talking about.


Here are some highlights:


Be part of the content ecosystem


**What a curator should do is embrace content both as a marketer and an organizer


Follow a schedule


**No matter what and how much you post, 2 new links a day and one big post per week, that's a schedule


**Be consistent and post at the same time everyday so your readers will know when to expect new content


**consistency and regularity brings new users and helps you build a loyal fan base


Embrace multi platforms


**Put your work where your audience is, today you have to go to them (more about this in the article)


Engage and Participate


**Select only the best content - read everything before you hit the send button - you'll build trust by helping your readers find great content and information


**This is a great way to build relationships with bloggers and other curators (more on this in the article)


Share, Don't Steal


**Last but definitely not least, you must acknowledge the source, there are no exceptions


**When people choose to listen to you, it's because you've proven to separate the signal from the noise

Hi John, It's funny, we can read these articles over and over but I always find something new each time I read them. How about you?

Hi Jan, correct. Everytime I think "oh, I know already" But when I read the article I always find one or two things that I didn't knew already :)

Curation Plays A Major Role in Successful Content Strategy - Here's Why

Curation Plays A Major Role in Successful Content Strategy - Here's Why | Collaborative Content-Curation: new Forms of Reading & Writing #curation #journalism #education #e-learning |

This is an interesting article by Byron White, Founder of IdeaLaunch.


I love the way the author has positioned curation as a key element in content marketing strategy. He says that curation starts with the selection process of the right articles, then researching the assets of the competition.


In addition to adding context, also part of the process is learning how much content you need, how frequently to publish it and which channels of distribution, (social especially) required to capture organic market share.


Having said that, here are a few things the author said and my comments:


He says -"Who will win the content curation war of the web? The race to transform to high-quality publishing is officially on. It’s time to gather ideas, develop stories and publish quality content that keeps readers (and customers) coming back for more".


I say, I don't  think it's a war, I think it's an evolution, I think there will be many winners, it's not a race


He says, "We’ve all heard the expression Content is King. After all, content is the fuel behind the social media revolution currently sweeping the Web. Close examination of the art world, however, offers a solid case that curation, not content, may in fact be the ruler online."


I say:  I think it's a combination of both, original and curated content are both ruler online. I don't think it's either or.


What do you think?


Here's what caught my attention:


**The skill and savvy of a Content Strategist is equally as important as your Director of Marketing these days.


**Getting the right content to the right prospects at the right time is the key to content marketing success.


****But in the end, it’s not content that’s king. Instead, it’s the impact that the content has on us long after we pass it by.


****Great content is hard to create, curate, optimize and distribute. But when it all comes to together, it is the catalyst that makes your business better. And better than that.
