This post was written by Andy Capaloff for Curatti


I love this article because as curator and a business owner being a provacateur is essential in instigating conversation and taking a topic to another level which can lead to all kinds of opportunities. There's an art to asking questions and this just first of many pieces on this topic that you'll find on Curatti


Something to ponder.......


How can you use leverage questions to benefit your business?


Can monetary value be placed on questions?  Not really, as there are too many variables involved. But depending on the timing and manner of delivery, questions can be the ingredient that spurs innovation and growth.

 

Here's are a few highlights:

 

The rhetorical question can spur conversation and wake up a

slumbering ideas process


The joking question can lift a mood


The incisive question can take a brilliant idea into a different stratosphere


The personal question can tell a person struggling in solitude that someone in the world cares

Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, October 15, 2013 1:08 PM

When I scooped the Content Marketing study showing a narrowing gap between B2C and B2B content marketing it struck me to share 10 ways B2C content marketing is different than B2B. I spent 7 years as a Director of Ecommerce and the last two as Marketing Director for Atlantic BT, a B2B web and software Development Company in Raleigh so can speak intelligently about both camps (one would hope :).

Here are 10 Ways B2C content is different than B2B:

* More User Generated Content.
* More contests and games.
* Less content creation.
* More content .
* More snippets and keywords less paragraphs and white papers.
* More social content less evergreen.
* Visual support important to both, REALLY important B2C.
* Content has to be FLATTER (less linked, less words, more bullets) and more visually support of immediate conversion.
* LESS YOU (website owner) more THEM (community formed around brands or products or your website).
* Money is ultimate judge of success.

You could argue money is the ultimate litmus test for both, but B2C is about money today and B2B is about money tomorrow.

The Benefits of Content Curation and How to Make it Work for You

The Benefits of Content Curation and How to Make it Work for You | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it

Beth Kanter wrote a very complete and interesting piece in NTEN's latest edition of their quarterly journal for non-profit leaders. You have to download the journal but it's worth it and it's free (you just need to register). 

 

Jan Gordon: I agree with Guillaume, Beth Kanter knows what she's talking about and her article is definitely worth reading.

 

Guillaume Decugis wrote this commentary:

 

"It's been fascinating for me to see how non-profits seem to embrace Social Media in general and Content Curation in particular - Beth of course being a key advocate in that move.

 

The broader take-away that I see for those of us in all sorts of organizations, as independant professionals or SMB-owners is the validation it brings to the model. When tightly-budgeted NPO's embrace a practice as a group, you can bet they're not wasting their scarce resources on a hype. They have to be efficient and as Beth puts it in the article: "Putting content curation into practice is part art form, part science, but mostly about daily practice. You don’t need to do it for hours, but 20 minutes every day will help you develop and hone the skills."

 

This is precisely where we see the opportunity with curation for professionals: building up a good practice that fits with one's daily routine and that -as Beth puts it - brings great "unexpected benefits".
