Beth Kanter Interviews Robin Good - Insights & Tips On Curation For Non- Profits [Video]

Beth Kanter interviewed Robin Good a few days ago, for the entire interview with Beth and Robin please click here: []

Robin, I really enjoyed listening to you, I know this is aimed at non-profits but your insights, tips and suggestions are something we can all use. 

Here are a few things that caught my attention:

**BEFORE you get on the web, decide how much time you're going to spend on there, otherwise it could become addictive, and this can happen if you're not careful (hmmm how many of you can relate to this?) 

**Know who your audience is, pick a very specific topic,

**be as narrow as you can, find great pieces, pull out what you think would be relevant for them (being too broad doesn't help filter out the noise for these people, it adds to it)

I'm going to let you get right to the interview and let Robin tell you more:-)

Jan - thanks for scooping this. I learned a lot from this interview. I also transcribed it and have included what I think of some of Robin's "classic" curation resources!

Taking Curation To The Next Level - What You Need to Do

This piece was written by Michiel Gassterland Founder of We Do Communications @michiegaas

Curated by JanLGordon covering "Content Curation, Social Media and Beyond"



"In April I wrote a post called ‘What is Content Curation?’. I’m getting a lot of search engine traffic on it. It’s must be a hot topic."

Here's what caught my attention:

Many of us are curating content on Twitter and other social networks. Michael is reminding us to concentrate on one specifc topic and do it well.

**Curate to showcase your expertize and make you a SME (subject matter expert) on the topic that corresponds with your interest, your background and is continually relevant to the audience.

**Choose one topic, and do it well, select only the very best content you can find. Don't clutter it up with other topics, become a trusted source in one area and you will build a loyal following, customer base and beyond.

**Content curation done well can open many doors, this is an area that is exploding, many opportunities lie ahead for those who do this effectively.

Michiel is using Shareist as a curation platform and has some very good things to say about it.
