Hero Marketing Coming To Curagami: Whose Your Hero?

Hero Marketing Coming To Curagami: Whose Your Hero? | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it

Hero Marketing: The Only Marketing Left
Writing a post for LinkedIn about living a EULOGY LIFE instead of a RESUME LIFE (http://www.linkedin.com/today/post/article/20140717125545-13925622-are-you-living-a-resume-or-a-eulogy-life ) I realized the need to share more about the Hero Marketing idea that occurred as we rode bicycles across America.

Hero Marketing will be on Curagami ( http://www.curagami.com ) tomorrow (Saturday). In the meantime, WHOSE YOUR HERO?

Why We Are All Content Curators Now - ScentTrail Marketing

Why We Are All Content Curators Now - ScentTrail Marketing | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it

This post shares a story, a story of a piece of content written for @ janlgordon curatti.com. How did Startup Trends 2014 II go from being a laggard at social shares to outshining its brother post (Startup Trends 2014 I)?

Ongoing curation and GPlus provide the answers and proving why we are all content curators now. The piece also shares some "down the SEO rabbit hole" content curation and creation perspective.

Promise to write more "down the SEO rabbit hole" content soon.

SEO's Terminal Entropy - New Media Leaders

SEO's Terminal Entropy - New Media Leaders | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it
SEO as we've known and practiced it is terminally ill because of the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics. Entropy is killing SEO and that is as it should be.
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Written in response to Is SEO Dying? Yes It Is http://www.digitalgossips.com/2013/05/is-seo-dying-yes-it-is.html by Munaz Anjum (@munazanjum) this post is an answer to a friend's question.


J. Nolfo (@JNolfo) asked if I thought SEO was dead or dying. The short answer is YES, but I did add a sixth force to the five SEO Killers Anjum noted:

* Mobile.
* Tech.
* Google.
* Social.
* Us.


The Master Blaster controlling force, I argue in the linked post on @NewMediaLeaderz is E N T R O P Y.

I'd say SEO is dead, long live SEO ! There will always be a need for search and engines and search/discovery optimization in one form or another...
Martin (Marty) Smith's comment, May 28, 2013 1:33 PM
Therese is right. Until we plug in directly math will need to understand marketing and that means some level of technical SEO remains IMPORTANT.

What Is Long-Form Content and Why Does It Work?

What Is Long-Form Content and Why Does It Work? | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it
Ask two content marketers about long-form content and you’ll likely get two completely different responses. The first might say that long-form content is a gamble, given audiences’ supposedly min…
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Storify Long Form Content To Win
Great post explaining why SHORT or LONG form content works and the middle drags. Amazing charts and graphs supporting why long form works ins a heuristic TIME ON SITE time (like this one). If your readers are ENGAGED they are more valuable than if they are "one and done" and long form content creates more engagement.

The post speculates on why, but my theory is its easier to tell a better story. It takes me 500 words just to get my scene set (lol). I'm kidding, but I do like to "storify" my content.

In this context "storify" means to find a larger story I can riff INTO the post or share a personal but relevant story that provides the same kind of "backbone" content.

A great piece of reading about adding more value with more content.  The examples are highly illustrative, turning a dry rock into live rock.

Shocked By Content Or Saved By Curation? via @gdecugis @markwschaefer @scenttrail

Shocked By Content Or Saved By Curation? via @gdecugis @markwschaefer @scenttrail | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it

Will content shock, a point where too much information chases too little attention, kill the inbound marketing golden egg laying goose? Maybe, maybe not.

Marty Note
Wrote thos post after reading @Guillaume Decugisexcellent Interest-based Content Curation Publishing: the cure for Content Shock?and Mark Shaefer's (@markwschaefer)equally as intriguing Content Shock: Why Content Marketing Is Not A Sustainable Strategy.

To understnad why I agree with both postions and that's possible you will need to read the ScentTrail Marketing post :).

Stop Making Excuses & Change The World [Video]

Stop Making Excuses & Change The World [Video] | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it

Martin Smith is changing the world. Can you spare a Peep?


Marty Note
I loved Phil's comparison to Peeps in this piece. In fact this piece keep me going as the creation of two very BIG projects became TOUGH (as they always do).


Now we can see LAUNCH in our sites (October 11) and the grade is down hill instead of up. Amazing friend, amazing note and much appreciated.

BTW, NOT me dancing in this video though that is much the way I dance (lol).

Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

This amazingly generous and helpful note from my friend Phil Buckley was inspirational. We are 11 days from launching the two most important projects of my life, two websites:

CureCancerStarter.org - Crowdfunding Cancer Research
http://www.curecancerstarter.org

CureCancerStore.org - Shop to cure cancer.
http://www.curecancerstore.org

All profits go to cancer research and we are working with some amazing cancer research partners. Hope you will join our #curecancer Buzz Team:
