New Visual Content Curation Platform: Tapiture Is Pinterest For Men

New Visual Content Curation Platform: Tapiture Is Pinterest For Men | Mobile Websites vs Mobile Apps | Scoop.it

From "About" on official website:

"Tapiture is a social community that allows users to easily save, share and search for your favorite images from all over the internet. It's where the internet begins.

 

Key features are:

- Install the Tapiture button:

You can simply drag and drop the "Tap it" button below directly to your browser's bookmark toolbar and you're ready to start populating your Tapiture account.

 

- How to Tap images:
When you come across a photo on any site that you'd like to save, click theTap itbookmarklet which will activate Tapiture. Find the photo you wanted to save and click the photo. You can then organize this photo into a Chapter that you have created and also give it a description and tag the photo with keywords.

 

- Re-Tap images:
Find an image you like on Tapiture that someone else has Tapped? Hit the Retap button next to the image.

 

- The world's first and largest viral image search engine:
Since users can tag each photo with specific tags, all images are easily searchable.

 

- Follow and meet other Tappers..."

 

 

From review article on TechCrunch:

"The idea of a “Pinterest for men” is something that gets thrown around a lot — a few months ago, it seemed like I’d get a pitch for a new one every day. Tapiture is one of the newer contenders, but its traffic numbers suggest that it has a chance at claiming the title.

 

Leo Resig, co-founder of Resignation Media (which owns both properties) tells me Tapiture has its roots as a photo-tagging system on theCHIVE, before growing into a site of its own, where users can share (or, in Tapiture’s terminology, tap) photos of attractive women, cool products, funny jokes, and anything else.

 

It turns out that mix is a product of human curation, without which the site would probably be nothing but scantily clad women...."

Best Practices For Planning A Content Curation Strategy By Steve Rosenbaum [Video]

This presentation will explore how to plan a video curation strategy, how to determine what sources are appropriate for your visitors, and how you invite and curate user-generated and user-submitted content.

 

From article on Streamingmedia.com:

"Curation can solve the problem of abundance online, Steven Rosenbaum explained at the recent Streaming Media East conference in New York City. While creative professionals occasionally disagree with curation, it's a way for site owners to present strong material to site visitors and cut through the clutter.

"Content curators are distributors of collections," explained Rosenbaum.

...

That's the abundance problem. If you went ahead and made all the curators in the world go away, you'd still have this signal-to-noise problem that we laid out at the beginning of the talk. So, absolutely no way is curation the thing that is the enemy of creation."

 

A well-planned content curation strategy doesn't simply present a list of videos to site visitors. It presents a collection with personality. When curating materials to present, think about the persona that makes that collection unique..."

Social Storytelling: How Brands Are Streaming Stories | MSLGROUP ... | Mobile Websites vs Mobile Apps | Scoop.it

“I had to know and understand my own story before I could listen to and help other people with theirs.” - Barack Obama, US President

 

“Once people make your story their story, you have tapped into ‘faith’.” - Seth Godin, US entrepreneur, author, public speaker 

 

This article is a little long, but it is a gem. It's focus is to highlight the various ways storytelling in marketing/branding has become more complex. And the author Dominic Payling gives us some ways to think about this complexity that helps us untangle storytelling in this area.

 

Truly, storytelling is creating fundamental change in the marketing and branding field. Payling lays this out, and offers us information about new patterns of attention that have emerged with the use of technology and the internet.

 

Payling doesn't offer any specific solutions, but clearer thinking about the evolution of working with stories in marketing/branding and some of the unique characteristcs that are emerging is always welcome.

Marketing Is Dead -- Story Is Now

Marketing Is Dead -- Story Is Now | Mobile Websites vs Mobile Apps | Scoop.it
In our social media-infused world, traditional marketing logic just doesn't work.

 

I had earmarked this article to share with you awhile ago and just found it again when cleaning up my emails. Better late than never!

 

Here's what I love about this post -- it makes no bones about the fact that marketing is changing. And if you haven't gotten with the program, get on board quick!

 

Now, I don't agree that ALL traditional marketing techniques are dead. But the author Bill Lee sure does make a great case explaining how things are changing. And his statistics are riveting.

 

And I also like that he shares with us what we need to do to stay with the curve:

Getting into community marketing Identify and promote customers that bring value (and not just based on how much they buy) Help your customers build social capital Involve your customers in creating solutions together

 

What's story got to do with it? Stories are the way the points above happen. It's all about the stories you share, listen to, promote, ask for, engage with, and retell. And hint hint -- these are your customer stories mostly!

 

Go read the article for all of Lee's insights. This will post will definitely get you thinking differently.

If you want a seamless guest experience your hotel needs to have a story Heres an example how to turn story ...

 

This is a quick yet very insightful article linking the interior design of a hotel, storytelling, and women's liberation.

 

"Whaaaaattttt??!!" you say. Yep. It's a perfect example of how a hotel got creative and leveraged storytelling in order to market themselves more effectively, and increase sales.

 

The post about a New York City hotel that originally opened as the Hotel Martha Washington. It was the first hotel in the country specially designed for women only. Based on the the building's history, the new owners of the hotel created a persona that typified women who stayed at the hotel.

 

From there they created interior designs that connected together its history, the contributions of 12 women to our world, their identified persona, and their marketing efforts. Brilliant!

 

I love how this company translated storytelling into the physical world through its interior designs. More companies need to be doing this for enhancing both employee and customer experiences/engagement.

 

For all the details, go read this article. Like a chocolate truffle, it's small but rich with a lasting impression!

How to Consistently Out-Curate Your Competitors | Outspoken Media

How to Consistently Out-Curate Your Competitors | Outspoken Media | Mobile Websites vs Mobile Apps | Scoop.it

Excerpted from this interesting article on Outspoken Media:

"The facts are:

***Content curation is a needed skill that will only grow in importance as more big brands and publishers flood the Internet with all kinds of content.
***Curation can be a fun, rewarding and highly effective part of your online marketing mix.
***Curating content requires skill, tenacity and, above all, an unflinching focus on the needs of your audience.

 

The biggest temptation all search marketers face is to sell our souls to the Borg and AUTOMATE EVERYTHING.

 

An effective curation strategy requires a healthy variety of sources. If you expect any one tool to do all of the work for you, you’re going to miss a lot of remarkable content.

 

So, use a fancy tool as one of your filters, if you wish. But don’t fool yourself into believing you can just put it on autopilot and watch it magically send you everything you need to succeed.

 

If your goal is to curate content that provides true value for your audience, you’ve got to out-hustle all of the namby-pamby posers in your niche who claim to be curating, however half-heartedly.

 

Here is a collection of solid strategies and tasty tactics that will help you consistently out-curate your competitors.

1) Create Twitter lists of experts and thought leaders in your niche.

2) Save Twitter searches for relevant keywords.
3) Build customized MyAllTop pages to keep up on industry blogs.
4) Set up Google Alerts for targeted keywords.
5) Subscribe to blogs by RSS and view them in Google Reader.
6) Create topical lists on Facebook.
7) Perform keyword searches in Trackur.
8) Explore Regator’s curated blog directory.
9) Hunt down content by category on StumbleUpon.
10) Find applicable articles and experts with Topsy.
11) Join relevant LinkedIn groups.
12) Search Scribd’s documents database.
13) Dig into the bookmarked items on Delicious.
14) Keep an eye on curated niche sites that serve your audience, like Inbound.org.
15) Scour the Web with Snip.it and Scoop.it.
16) Drop your keywords into Bottlenose.
17) Scan the curated lists on List.ly.
18) Sign up for a personalized email digest from YourVersion.
19) Say hello to your little friend: Social Buzz.
20) Swing by Ice Rocket and ROCKZi once in awhile.
21) Ignore Google+ at your own risk. I dare you. #smooches.

 

Constantly Refine and Refocus Your Curation Strategy:

I like to cram tons of different sources into my content funnel at the beginning of each new curation project. Then, once I’m convinced I’ve cast my net wide enough, I begin the crucial process of whittling down those sources into a much more manageable list.

 

Be the Pickiest, Little Curator Allowed by Law:

If you’re going to out-curate your competition, every piece of content you serve to your audience has to be exactly the right piece of content.

Set high standards and strive to exceed them...."

Here are the best articles from across the web that I can find on using stories and storytelling in business.

I've chosen them because they actually make a contribution to our knowledge and wisdom about stories, show us how to apply stories to growing our businesses, or give valuable how-to tips.

 

I weed out all the junk. And besides, who needs another post in why storytelling is important?? Where's the beef?? We want the meat!

 

I've written reviews of each article to share what I like best, what you can get from reading the article, or what may be missing in the article.

 

How To Find A Topic: Click on the Filter tab above, and type in a keyword. All the articles with that keyword will appear.

 

I may occassionally review an article that I think is problematic as a way to educate us all, although most I will simply pass over.  If you wonder if I've seen an article that is not included here, send me a message and I'll respond.

After doing biz story work for over a decade (and with a PhD in Folklore) I hope you find many great insights and tips here. Many thanks for visiting and enjoy the articles!
