The Busy Person's Guide to Content Curation: A 3-Step Process

The Busy Person's Guide to Content Curation: A 3-Step Process | Internet Presence | Scoop.it

Excerpt from the article written by Kevan Lee and posted on Buffer Blog:
"Finding and sharing exquisite content has never had more value than it does today.

What is content curation?
Content curation is sorting through a large amount of web content to find the best, most meaningful bits and presenting these in an organized, valuable way.
Or another definition:
"In a world of nearly infinite content, consumers are looking to one-stop shop." by Mike Kaput

Curation is not aggregation.
Aggregation is algorithmic. Curation is handpicked.
The human element of curation is a huge source of its value.

Significant benefits to a good content curation strategy include:
- You improve your relationship with the sites whose content you share.
- You grow your authority on a subject (provided the curation is top-notch).
- You add quality content to your site or timeline and create a great resource for others.
- You save time from creating content yourself, from scratch.

Examples of where you might use content curation:
- Curate content in a weekly blog post.
- Curate content in an email newsletter.
- Curate content on your social media profiles.

How to curate content as efficiently and expertly as possible.
Certainly, there is a time investment involved in doing it right (as with most things done well). There are a number of resources, tools, and tricks that help make the curation process even easier. Here’s what’s involved.

-Find unique places to discover exquisite content
We collected 17 off-the-radar places to search for new content. The off-the-radar spots are often quite good; there’s content on those sites that your audience may not have seen before, which adds an immediate boost of credibility for you and a boost of value your readers.

- Read what you find
I can admit to being tempted to skim a story and share it—or skip the skimming altogether and jump straight to sharing! There’s just so much content to read and so little time.
I’m clearly not alone in this temptation. Do people read what they share? Not exactly.

- Pick out your favorites
As you read, make note of the stories that really stood out to you and that you’d like to share. There are a number of different ways of organizing these, ranging from old-school to highly automated.

Batch and schedule: The shortcut to social curation
If you choose to share your curation on social media (great idea!), you have a number of tools at your disposal and one neat time-saving trick: Batch and schedule.

Inside the Buffer curation process
Curation is a regular part of our daily activities here at Buffer, both in our social media marketing and in the Buffer product itself.  We share the best stories we can find from our archives and from the web to our profiles on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and LinkedIn, and we curate a list of content suggestions that are offered fresh each day for folks to pick up and add to their buffers..."

Is Content Curation Legal?

Is Content Curation Legal? | Internet Presence | Scoop.it

As we learned with the Lean Startup method, users and prospects feedback play a big role in a startup success. 

One of the worries some of our prospects told us are the legal aspects of the curated content. They formulated it in a lot of ways, but basically, what they wanted to ask us was:

Am I going to be legally punished by using content from other people?

The magical answer to this question is: It depends.

Why Content Curation is the Ultimate Compliment to the Creator

Why Content Curation is the Ultimate Compliment to the Creator | Internet Presence | Scoop.it

Before today, imitation was the greatest form of flattery. If your idea was good enough to be copied, then you were golden. But now, with the state of the web in our lives, this balance is shifting. While “copying” still does exist online, the concept of “copying” is now simply a way to bump your own Google ranking by farming someone else’s content. This, is not flattering. Even if correctly cited, 100% republished work is simply cheating to get ahead. Curation, on the other hand — the meaningful selection, enrichment, and sharing of existing media — combines imitation and creation. Curators have to create a new perspective or idea on top of the existing media which supports the content in the original.

True curators endlessly search for the best of the best, the cream of the crop. Think of them as a “critics of all the things.” Critics are often the our best sources of information — when you are checking out a new restaurant, you often take a look at what Yelp or a quick Google search has to say about them, or perhaps you read an article in your local newspaper about the establishment. Pundits are often in control of the flow of political information. Literary critics determine the success or failure of many authors’ works. Curators of online content are simply critics of many things; people who’ve been incredibly well-educated about a certain topic and are seeking the best things available in the vertical they’ve chosen.

As a creator myself, I’ve seen many straight content creators get upset that their work has been curated. We so hope we can shift this opinion! Curators are paying you the ultimate compliment when they have selected a piece of your’s to enrich and share — they think you are among the best of the best, the creme of the crop.

Marc Kneepkens's insight:

We all put those 'share' buttons on our sites and blogs. Having a curator pick your content is yet another way of sharing and acknowledging that your content is superb. Good curators have a great following, quality and quantity wise. It's another good way to get the word out.

Ally Greer's curator insight, December 4, 2013 1:08 PM

As a creator, the greatest compliment to receive should be to have your content curated into a collection of the web's best content on a specific subject (namely, the one you're creating content about).


As a curator, the ultimate compliment to give is to properly share and cite all of the content you've created, add your insight while giving due credit to the creator and presenting their content in a meaningful way.

The Curation secrets behind Upworthy's success

The Curation secrets behind Upworthy's success | Internet Presence | Scoop.it

With the third highest traffic behind Yahoo! News and Huffington Post, the marketing world is wondering how the Upworthy team cultivated the fastest-growing and most engaged audience on the web. It’s got to be the attention grabbing headlines, right?

At the Ad Age Digital Conference, Upworthy CEO Eli Pariser revealed their new rules for driving unprecedented engagement and reach.

First, consider this fact: It’s estimated that there are 1500 pieces of content that a person might see on their Facebook feed per day, and only a tiny fraction of it is seen or shared. Upworthy appears to have cracked the Facebook code, since that platform is the biggest traffic driver for the site, said Pariser.

7 Ways Content Curation Can Wow Your Audience

7 Ways Content Curation Can Wow Your Audience | Internet Presence | Scoop.it

When Rand Fishkin joked that everyone is caught in the middle of a content arms race, we knew that he wasn’t kidding. You and I both know the power of custom content, but do you realize the power behind boosting the volume of information shared so that it potentially reaches all four corners of the Internet?

Everyone can’t seem to create custom, high quality content fast enough, but what most people don’t realize is that you CAN gain a competitive edge by expanding your content marketing offering.  And that is exactly what content curation does.

In short, what content curation does is leverage on the power of other people’s content, then put it in the context of your brand while populating the virtual world with resources that points to you as an industry leader.
