1,000,000 people and businesses are now using Scoop.it! | Meetings, Tourism and  Technology | Scoop.it
Interest-based content curation was only a vision 2 years ago when we launched: in a post Web 2.0 world, we felt that more and more we are the content we publish. Whether we liked it or not, we would all need to become media - a problem for busy professionals who don’t have time or inspiration for that and whose primary expertise is often not to be a content publisher.

Since then, publishing-by-curation rapidly turned into an important trend as 1,000,000 freelance professionals, community managers, content marketers, educators, knowledge managers, thought leaders, and more are now using Scoop.it to demonstrate and share their professional expertise, develop visibility for their small or mid-sized businesses or to make the company they work for smarter.

From taking a look at where the Go-go's go in Ibiza's low season, Spain's blossoming cabaret culture and Valencia's art collectives, to the hottest property from Madrid Fashion Week and interviews with Manolo Blahnik, Jane Joyd and the pastry chef with a difference, Christian Escribà.

How To Double Your Marketing Effectiveness By Combining Content Marketing And Social

How To Double Your Marketing Effectiveness By Combining Content Marketing And Social | Meetings, Tourism and  Technology | Scoop.it

 In 2014, content marketing is expected to become a much more widely used marketing tactic. In fact, in a recent survey, 74% of brands expect to increase their content marketing spend in 2014. However, as Jason Falls rightly pointed out, content marketing alone will fail.

 

Over 2013 and the first part of 2014, many brands have been pummelled online. Facebook’s updated algorithm now means brand pages receive on average a pathetic 2% organic reach. Meanwhile, Google released a series of algorithm updates resulting in brutal penalizations of previously high ranking sites who had been using shady tactics in the past. With all the hype around content marketing, there is the risk that businesses and marketers will see it as a golden egg, and then cut expenditure on SEO and Social Media, which are actually both vital channels.

 

The truth is, content marketing thrives when incorporated into a wider digital marketing strategy, but fails alone. In this article we’ll look at the benefits of a combined content and social strategy, and exactly how to go about running your campaign.
