Here is a question that I hear all the time: "Should I be on every major social network?" The answer is no.

When deciding where to be decide first why you want to be part of a particular site and how it will help you to reach your target audience or what benefit you will have by participating on this platform.

Why lean is the future of content marketing #SMWNYC

Ally Greer's curator insight, February 24, 2:22 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.

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.

Content Strategy of disruptors: how Open Garden builds an engaged community around mesh networking

Content Strategy of disruptors: how Open Garden builds an engaged community around mesh networking | Princess of Curation | Scoop.it
Changing the world not only takes a great idea but also takes building momentum around it. The team at Open Garden, a San Francisco based startup, who could be to mobile data what Skype was to telephone calls, understood from the beginning how important it was to build a community around its disruptive idea.

But how can you do this when you’re also running a startup, coding a product and making deals with your first strategic partners?

Open Garden Co-founder & CEO Micha Benoliel explains in this video how using Scoop.it allows him and his team to build this kind of momentum through publishing by curation and thereby engaging their community around a key tenet of its mission mesh networking - the awesome concept that we can all share wireless bandwidth (and that Open Garden makes a reality through its Apps and technology).
Just like any startup, Micha and his team - former Skype employees - are experts on their market. So when they Continue reading →
Lori Wilk's insight:

I love how Open Garden explains that by aggregating content on a specific topic through curation they can share more topic-related content with others quickly and efficiently. Content curation using Scoop.It allows businesses to showcase their own content as well as to share relevant articles that demonstrate current market trends for their industry or  a specific market niche. Scoop.it  is a content curation platform which provides tools for engagement with other business people in a way that fosters rapid growth of communities. These tools help you engage with others who share your interests and the metrics provide you information that allows you to make better decisions about how to build your community.

Short Form Content: The Latest Social Media Trend #leancontent | Princess of Curation | Scoop.it

Would you like to speed up your content creation process, while concurrently making it more relevant to your audience?

 

While Google still loves long-form magazine style content, it is certainly better to create short form content than nothing at all.

 

However, instead of considering short-form content a compromise, recognize it for what it is. This is a win-win for your business and its on-the-go audience that often only has time for a snack.


It’s no coincidence that the fastest growing social media channels are those that deliver the bite-sized content that active people crave. For businesses, we’re talking about Instagram, Pinterest, and Vine.

Raising Your Content Curation to the Next Level

Raising Your Content Curation to the Next Level | Princess of Curation | Scoop.it

There have been many pieces done on this subject but beyond insights and information, you have to have a plan before you set out to do this effectively. The author, Neal Schaffer of Windmill Networking refers to a post by Bob Geller and adds some good suggestions of his own.

 

"There is software like Curata out there or you can do it yourself if you're on a tight budget. Here are some highlight for those of you who are doing it on your own".

 

Excerpt:

 

So what is the secret sauce that makes people like Guy Kawasaki, Robert Scoble, or Mari Smith popular while most everyone else remains hidden?

 

In a word: Sources

 

In order to do this yourself, remember that you have to go beyond sharing the articles that land in your favorite RSS feeds, or just reposting something from your social media timeline (which honestly has probably been reposted a thousand times before).

 

**To make your social curation easier, and more effective, here are a few things you might want to do:

 

**Do a competitor check. It’s important to know what’s already out there

 

**What do your competitors post? How or when do they post? What are their usual sources?

 

**Study your competitor’s social media behavior meticulously. It’ll take time, yes, but once you’ve established where you stand, you can start looking for the best places to gather curated information without fear of repeating what others have already shared.

 

**There is an excellent curation methodology created by on content curation platform Curata. Check out their blog post on Crafting the Perfect Content Curation Strategy for more details that further expands all the above.

 

If  have a good plan in place and follow the tips suggested in this post:

 

**The ROI of this will undoubtedly be

 

**1) growth in your social reach 

 

**2) more clicks on content

Lori Wilk's insight:

Great to hear what's being said on issues of content creation vs content curation and we'll get the see what worked best when we tally up the results at the end of the year. I do agree that in many cases the writers are not getting paid enough to create the original content.It is easier to get more content delivered to more people, quickly, by having fewer original articles to create and more curated content to share. The curated content is already written and is waiting for more distribution. The original content takes more research, thinking, writing, editing, and then posting. It's a longer process to create new content and it costs more than curating existing content. The perfect combination of both content creation and content curation will be very lucrative for some platforms this year-we'll have to wait to see who figures it out the best and who makes the most money doing it.

I like this quote from the article


"Curation is about people. It’s about knowing what people want, when they want it, and how they want it. As smart as computers are (and will be), I think we all appreciate the front-and-center engagement of humans with high degrees of expertise in certain subjects, guiding the curation process."
