I'm glad I read this article. I hadn't thought about the value of roundup blog articles.
Alfredo Corell's curator insight, January 16, 2013 5:44 PM

The 5 reasons are:
1. You want to be the main resources in your niche.
2.You want your blog to rank in search results for particular keywords.

3. Your audience wants to know your thoughts on a particular topic.

4. The last time the topic was covered was so long ago, it’s out of date.5. You could get listed in a roundup post about a particular topic.

I’m Not Your Consumer: How Research Misses The Human Behind The Demographic

I’m Not Your Consumer: How Research Misses The Human Behind The Demographic | Harvard Trends | Scoop.it
Whenever I hear the word “consumer,” a term unavoidable in marketing, a part of me winces. The label is counterproductive and misguided, suggesting hubris by putting corporate interests over customer concerns.

20 Tips for Creating a Professional Learning Network

20 Tips for Creating a Professional Learning Network | Harvard Trends | Scoop.it

"Networking is a prime form of 21stcentury learning.  The world is much smaller thanks to technology.  Learning is transforming into a globally collaborative enterprise.  Take for example scientists; professional networks allow the scientific community to share discoveries much faster.

Just this month, a tech news article showcased how Harvard scientists are considering that “sharing discoveries is more efficient and honorable than patenting them.”  This idea embodies the true spirit of a successful professional learning network: collaboration for its own sake."

Tomorrow’s world: A visual guide to the next 150 years

Tomorrow’s world: A visual guide to the next 150 years | Harvard Trends | Scoop.it

As we begin a new year, BBC Future has compiled 40 intriguing predictions made by scientists, politicians, journalists, bloggers and other assorted pundits in recent years about the shape of the world from 2013 to 2150.

 

They range from the serious to the fanciful, from the exciting to the petrifying.

And to get a gauge on how likely they are to happen, we asked the special bets department at British betting firm Ladbrokes to give us their odds on each prediction coming true.

How many of these will come true,,,ha...ha I remember some of the great predictions in the past that never made it, whilst the unpredicted did. Anyone remember the "atomic" egg that would fit in a box to power all your household power needs? Anyone remember all the free time we were going to have to manage because robots and AI would be doing all the work?

Richard Andrews's curator insight, January 4, 2013 3:48 AM

Employee engagement and motivation is 'the big thing' just now but the practical, hands-on management of performance can't be ignored - not least because of the negative impact that failing to manage underperformance has on the engagement of other staff!

David Hain's curator insight, January 4, 2013 4:32 AM

Makes good economic sense - much cheaper than new hires who themselves may be unreliable and sends a great sign about talent management around the organisation.

This video is to be watched by all interested in curation. As curation and creatively becomes a much in demand skill, how can those content marketers looking for that easy share produce more content in less time? Well this video shall aim to answer that along with other inspiring ideas

IdeaEncore's curator insight, January 8, 2013 3:49 PM

Scott: Very helpful to see the subtlty of variations on curation

 

Robin:This is an oustandingly good video about "curation". After nine months from its first appearance, it undoubtedly deserves a second pass on my newsradar here, as I think this is a clip that, in less than three minutes, can do a good job to explain what curation really is to anyone not familiar with it. 

 

I find this video clip such a marvellous piece of inspiring content that I have decided to post it again, giving the opportunity to you - if you haven't seen it yet - to look at curation with eyes distant light-years from those of the content marketer looking for easy shortcuts to produce more content in less time, - and if you have seen it already - to look at it again and to pause and think about how you are going to take up and make yours some of the inspiring ideas shared in this clip.

 

Asking yourself more questions about how you curate and for what final purpose you do it, can only be a healthy exercise in refining this much in-demand skill.

 

 

To be watched by anyone interested in curation. 8/10

 

Original clip: http://vimeo.com/38524181

Barry Deutsch's curator insight, January 6, 2013 8:21 PM

Leane raises some good points in this article of sales professionals thinking they can close sales by sitting in front of a computer - doesn't work - no brainer on this issue.


I call a lot of the online networking and social engagement around the earlier funnel stage: social selling. We could also call it prospecting, lead generation and lead nurturing and whole bunch of other nice sounding phrases.


Social selling - engaging with potential customers and clients by publishing useful content and being helpful online through sites like LinkedIn is but one of a number of different sales tactics that may/may not overlap with traditional marketing.


My activities online establish me as a thought leader, expert in my niche, and go-to person for advice. Can I attribute direct business to this time investment of cultivating my persona/brand on-line? NO!


However, I can tell it directly reinforces everything I do in one-to-one face-to-face sellling. It gives me a way to continue to develop leads, show my value, give social proof through recommendations, present case studies, and discuss in a non-sales manner how I help similar customers/clients. This part of the equation is invaluable to closing sales since not everyone is going to say yes when you ask the closing question.

The Secret Ingredient of Brilliant Leaders and Managers

The Secret Ingredient of Brilliant Leaders and Managers | Harvard Trends | Scoop.it

I have only come across a handful of brilliant leaders and managers in my working career.

 

The ingredient these people shared was, they were intrinsically drawn to “doing the right thing”. The “right thing” for these leaders and managers wasn’t always popular. The act of choosing for them was sometimes personally agonising, but they still made those decisions.

 

When questioned, many leaders and managers know what “doing the right thing” is, but quite often,  mysteriously,  they just don’t make that decision.  Thus, opportunities are lost, credibility is questioned and results are lower than expected.

(From the Article): When leaders and managers don’t understand how to manage difference whether it is psychological, cultural, or an equality issue, or are more concerned about speedy outcomes at the expense of the people they employ, then there is a danger unhelpful decisions will be made.
