Why Content Curation Is Disruptive and A Very Powerful Tool Done Right

Why Content Curation Is Disruptive and A Very Powerful Tool Done Right | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it
janlgordon's insight:

This thought-provoking piece was written by Marty Smith who is one of our top scoopers here who knows what he's talking about when it comes to curation and why it is disruptive in this marketplace.


Marty gives you some great tips on how to use Scoopit to evaluate what works and what doesn't with your audience and more....


Marty Smith:




"When everyone is doing something as complicated as content marketing quality goes down. My ratios used to be about 50% curation to 50% creation. we can afford to lower creation now for two reasons:


  • An archive of almost a million words published across 4 blogs.
  • With so many people creating so much POOR content, creating LESS and making it BETTER is disruptive.
  • This “less and better” is  Curatti’s Editors of Chaos mission.


Snippet Curation with a powerful tool like Scoop.it moves your Internet marketing away from the pack. The pack is creating content faster and faster without a full understanding of what works


Most content marketers add NOISE in the hope screaming louder will make content stand out. It never does.

Content Marketing Tips

Stephen Dale's curator insight, November 14, 2013 12:59 PM

I've said this before, and will repeat...Contet Curation is not just for the Marketeers. I think it is as yet a vastly untapped skill/resource/process for Enterprise information professionals (IM/KM) in delivering themed, value--added and decision-ready content for their internal customers. #kmers #curation

Why Thought Leaders Need Provocateurs

Why Thought Leaders Need Provocateurs | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it
janlgordon's insight:
This piece was written by Andy Capaloff for Curatti
Collaboration across multiple skillsets is essential in any advancement, whether in the social sphere or in business.  Just as a good curator adds context related to their readership and an observation on the running of a small business can help take it to the next level, so input from people outside of the current thought leadership sphere can catapult conversations to new heights.
 
There are different types of smarts, and just because you may not feel that your writing matches up those involved in innovations that you are drawn to, does not mean that your input, providing a new angle, will not provide an ingredient that nobody even realized was missing.
 
Here are some highlights:
Technology and Social Media are branching out into many new forms at a rate few if any can keep up with.  Inevitably, natural selection comes into play, ensuring that even some of the best ideas barely see the light of day.
 
There is huge value in “multiple skillsets being employed in any process, with questions being asked by the non-experts or those with complementary skills”
 
There comes a point when a different viewpoint borne of different experiences and knowledge become essential to lift any great idea towards a new, far greater plateau

Why Context is so Important in Business Today

Why Context is so Important in Business Today | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

This piece was written by R "Ray" Wang for softwareinsider, there are great insights and strategy for businesses who want to stay ahead of the curve.


Here are the highlights of this article:


Intro:


The Real-Time is Filled with Flaws


The hype around big data, social media, and mobility has many folks imagining the real-time enterprise in the future of work, next generation customer experiences, matrix commerce, or the data to decisions journey.


While real-time theoretically leads to quicker information and faster response times, t.he reality requires closer examination for three reasons:


Here is a brief overview:


1. Customers ad employees only want engagement aligned with self interest


**Relevancy of information is required for customers and employees to respond


**Real-time interactions quickly evolve into noise.


2. No human can truly handle the volume and flow of real-time interactions.


3. Real time is not fast enough - Reaction does not lead to a better customer experience or employee interaction


Delivering context is the secret to right time success


Context provides the key ingredient in improving outcome


Why? Context provides the relevancy required for not only anticipation, but also prediction


The Bottom line: Start with Seven Dimensions of Context Drivers:


"In the design of an engagement strategy, success will require organizations to factor the seven dimensions of context drivers."


Context drivers:


relationships, time, location, business process, role, sentiment, intent

The Semantic Web is Hugely Important to Tomorrow's Business - Here's Why

The Semantic Web is Hugely Important to Tomorrow's Business - Here's Why | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it
The "semantic Web" is hugely important to tomorrow's business. Do not underestimate its significance: It truly changes everything. Embrace it, or risk extinction. But what is it? And what does it mean for your business?
janlgordon's insight:

This post was written by David Amerland for Forbes and he hold nothing back - he says "Do not underestinate its signifigance: It truly changes everything. Embrace it or risk extinction.


Here are a few things that caught my attention:


Yes it's the latest buzzword, but let's take a look beyond that..........


It marks the transition into a new phase of the Web where we stop searching and start finding


we discover not just the information that matches the keywords we search for, but the information that we really wanted to find. Information directly related in context, not just in keywords.


New Products; New Services


The semantic Web is far more open, transparent and personalized.


It’s being transformed into a place where the same content means different things to different people


The Answer Lies in Hyperconnectivity


In order for us to become smarter, we somehow need to understand the meaning of information.


To do that we need to be able to forge connections in all this data, to see how each piece of knowledge relates to every other


In the semantic Web, we users provide the connections, through our social media activity.


The patterns that emerge, the sentiment in the interactions—comments, shares, tweets, Likes, etc.—allow a very precise, detailed picture to emerge.



The Bottom Line


The semantic Web is accelerating change across the board, challenging companies that move too slowly to adapt. Embrace it, or risk extinction.


The old rules no longer apply. If you want to be found, social is no longer an option.

Bart van Maanen's curator insight, August 3, 2013 8:48 AM

Zoekmachines - en Google - voorop gaan de context van zoektermen steeds beter begrijpen, zodat gebruikers betere en op hun situatie (plek, voorkeuren) toegespitste resultaten krijgen. Omdat het daarbij om de zogeheten 'big data' draait, is onder meer het gebruik van Google+ belangrijk voor Google. 

 

Kort gezegd gaat het betekenen dat zoekwoord 'pizza' niet leidt naar allerhande recepten websites, maar naar de Italiaan om de hoek.

Jeff Walker, love your comment, I absolutely agree!

Context Will Drive The Future Of Web Content Management

Context Will Drive The Future Of Web Content Management | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it
Written By Tom Wentworth Web content management is at the most significant inflection point in its 15-year history. It's now all about the context.


Curated by JanLGordon covering Content curation, Social Media & Beyond


Relevant article about the future of content and what you need to know to be effective whether you're selling a product or service, blogging or curating content.


For curators, it's important to know why you're curating, who your audience is and what they need from the content you select. In many cases,  people might be coming to your site to find up to date information on a given topic to keep up with the changes in the marketplace.


If that's the case, it's important for you to point out trends, patterns, reviews or another layer of context to help your readers understand what's happening, how they can personally use this information to build their business or help them personally.


Here's one of the things that caught my attention:


****Context defines a visitor’s Web experience. If a visitor has come to a site through a search, he doesn’t want to click through multiple, slow-loading, hard-to-read pages to find a single piece of information.


**If visitors are on your site to make a purchase, it is imperative they experience the same level of checkout/shopping cart convenience that they would in the brick-and-mortar world.


**If a prospect has arrived on a landing page via an e-mail marketing campaign, Sales and Marketing definitely wants that page to display correctly on any device the prospect is using.


****“Delighting customers doesn’t build loyalty,” note the authors of a recent Harvard Business Review article.


****“Reducing their effort — the work they must do to get their problem solved — does.”


****Showing an understanding for the customer and respecting the manner they want to interact breeds loyalty.
