From review article on Nieman Journalism Lab:

"The problem is today’s journalist has to use too many products and applications to do their job, and very few of these were actually built with newsrooms or journalistic workflow in mind...

 

Spundge is a platform that’s built to take a journalist from information discovery and tracking all the way to publishing, regardless of whatever internal systems they have to contend with...

 

The software is free, but an optional $9 monthly fee adds premium features, including the ability to share notebooks with collaborators, who can also add to the notebook and see changes in real time..."

Excerpted from article:

"That's coming from someone whose entire job is to create content.

I mean, maybe you'll get a blog post written in a couple weeks. If you're lucky, a new lead generation offer could get pumped out once a quarter.

Here are 17 sources of quick content that can help you out in a pinch so you can keep feeding that hungry inbound marketing machine of yours.

 

1) Tap your sales and services teams.

2) Pull from your company collaboration tool.

3) Interview an internal expert.

4) Interview an external expert.

5) Pull excerpts from lead generation content.

Content Curation Goes Mainstream: What Is A Content Strategy And Why Do You Need It? - Forbes

Content Curation Goes Mainstream: What Is A Content Strategy And Why Do You Need It? - Forbes | Curating Mode ! | Scoop.it

Recently I attended Content Marketing World with over 1,000 other passionate marketing and business professionals. The topic was content marketing and how to effectively deploy content strategies.

Marty Note
Found this excellent Forbes article about curation from @BrennerMichael on Twitter. You know content curation has hit the big time when you see such a well thought out article in a major publication like Forbes. This isn't just a, "trend is happening" article this is advocacy. Advocacy only happens by majors once tipping points are in the rearview mirror.

I missed Content Marketing World this year, but there were less than a thousand there last year and I thought that to, the conference's attendance, was a sign the tipping point on content curation was behind us. The fact Forbes was there and reported on it is double jeopardy.

I'm rather surprised you consider this curation... It's not that it's product-centered, but that it's a limited pool from which any sort of curation can be done.

Bring Together the 2 Big Trends of 2012: Curation + Visuals

Bring Together the 2 Big Trends of 2012: Curation + Visuals | Curating Mode ! | Scoop.it

Curation was the word on marketers’ lips earlier this year. This report from Altimeter in March confirmed “Curation is taking over the digital content scene.”

 

In recent weeks that’s given way to “visual content” as the trending topic. As CMO.com said in August: “Two years ago, marketers were spreading the maxim that “content is king,” but now, it seems, “a picture really is worth a thousand words”.

 

So now the question is how to bring curation and visual content together in ways that attract your target audience and achieve your measurable goals.

 

Here are 4 examples of successful visual curation anfd tips on how to go about it.

Six Google Chrome extensions you should think about using

"Google does a great job of making those extensions easy to find and manage. There are also other plug-ins that I use several times a day. Here's a list of what I've found to be the most useful. I'm not going to bother writing my own summaries most of these extensions since their inclusion on the list amounts to my "endorsement" or them anyway."

Curate And Monetize Your Best Audio And Video Contents With Pivotshare

Curate And Monetize Your Best Audio And Video Contents With Pivotshare | Curating Mode ! | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Pivotshare is a web platform which allows you to create a branded web site where you can curate, promote and sell your best digital media video and audio files. 

 

The service accepts .mp4, .mov, swf, .flv, .avi and .mp3 files for upload and it lets you set the price and the business model (subscription or pay-per-view or a combination of both) that you want to use.

 

On Pivotshare you can brand your channel with your logo and customize its look and feel, and you can also "bookmark" specific "spots" inside your audio and video content.

Content on Pivotshare is accessible by both desktop computers as well by smartphone and tablet devices and it has the ability to memorize, for the user, where a sesson is left, so that it can be picked up next time he logs in.

 

You can set up some of your content to be free and some of it to be accessible only by paying for it. Each channel can be fueled by more than a contributor and you are free to decide who will team up with you.

 

There are two delivery formats available to curate and organize your key assets: a) the Showcase (ideal for ten items or less) and b) the Library (for collections of 50 or more items).

 

Revenue-wise Pivotshare takes 30% from a Channel’s revenue, and passes the rest to the Editor and Contributors of that Channel.

 

To use the service there is no upfront cost.
