--250 million photos are uploaded to Facebook everyday. --864,000 thousand hours of video are uploaded to YouTube everyday. --294 BILLION emails are sent everyday. That's why you can't read all the mail you get anymore.
The time it takes to follow and go through multiple web sites and blogs takes tangible time, and since most sources publish or give coverage to more than one topic, one gets to browse and scan through lots of useless content just...
Robin Good: Everytime I see a new post or article claiming to list the best content curation tools I know I am in for some disappointment.
Most of these lists just pick up names from other lists without even bothering to check, test or verify what these tools actually do, whether they are still available. Unfortunately the rush to put out "curated" list of tools and services has created more misinformation than useful lists.
But if you, like me, are on the lookout for new and effective tools to curate your own content or the one of your customers, I have created a comprehensive map of all the curation tools available online and I keep it fresh and updated almost on a daily basis.
The map presently lists over 250 content curation tools which you can navigate much more easily than it was possible on my earlier versions of this map.
On the right side of the map you will find all of the news and content curation tools available online today. On the left side, you can find bookmarking, link lists builders, clippers and lots of tools to operate with RSS feeds (which are still at the heart of a curator's job).
We are in the phase of introducing content strategy process in one of the successful team of our company. We have to prove our value-adds and strengths to the team in a short duration.
Do you have a clear goal in mind for what a successful content strategy engagement looks like? If so, then with that in mind, I would start with a basic content inventory/audit to see what existing content you have to work with. Create a framework to score each piece of content as they relate to achieving your strategy goal. At my agency, Yesler, we use the acronym REAL - is the content relevant, enlightening, actionable, and lively? If so, to what degree in each?
From there, you should be able to identify any gaps, find the strong pieces, and also see which ones can be reworked/repurposed to broaden the content offering. Throughout all this, you should also have a buyer persona and journey mapped out, even at a basic level, so you can see how the content will move the right people through the process and where they need to go next.
