How would you shape your story?

Andrew Raimist's curator insight, March 1, 1:06 AM

Kurt Vonnegut's rejected anthropology thesis proposed that the shapes of a culture's stories was at least as important as the shapes of their pots and spearheads.


I've been interested about the potential relationship of literary form to visual form, how we understand them logically, intellectually and emotively. How could a drawing, painting or work of architecture express the ideas contained in a work of literature through the use of form?


You can see Vonnegut discuss his ideas on the shapes of stories in this clip on YouTube:

Why lean is the future of content marketing #SMWNYC

In conjunction with Social Media Week NYC, Scoop.it's Ally Greer spoke to attendees and content marketers about the #leancontent methodology and how to use curation to jumpstart a business.

Ally Greer's curator insight, February 24, 5:22 PM

On Wednesday, I hosted a Social Media Week to discuss the #leancontent framework and some tips on how to use curation to jumpstart a business / content marketing strategy.


For the first half of the talk, we went through the ideas behind information overload, lean content (leverage, experiment, automate, measure) and how finding ways to make an impact without spending loads of time and money can help further a brand and/or business.


Secondly, we went through the seven parts of a lean content curation strategy:

1. Content discovery: finding the right content to share with your audience.

2. Website hosting and integration: finding a place for your content to live online and be indexed in search.

3. Scheduling: spending a small amount of time setting up the rest of your day, then adopting the "set it and forget it" mentality.

4. Analytics: understanding your unique audience.

5. Team curation: involving the rest of your company in content creation and offloading resposibilities.

6. Distribution: making sure all of your audiences (on different platforms) see your content. Automate this process with tools like Scoop.it

7. Increased visibility: if you aren't posting, someone else will be.

Дмитрий Аркас's curator insight, February 25, 11:19 PM

Cтратегия скупого курирования:

1. Найти правильный контент, чтобы поделиться с аудиторией.

2. Запустить сайт + интегрировать в соц.сети - обеспечить прямой эфир + индексацию в поиске.

3. Планировать быстро: "настроил и забыл".

4. Аналитика: понимать свою уникальную аудиторию.

5. Команда курирования: с участием остальной части вашей компании в области создания контента и публикации оного.

6. Распространение: убедиться, что вся ваша аудитории (на разных платформах) видит ваш контент..Автоматизировать процессы с инструментами, как Scoop.it

7. Увеличивать видимость: публиковать и публиковать.
