5 Best Practices Every Content Curator Should Follow

5 Best Practices Every Content Curator Should Follow | Public Relations & Social Media Insight |

I selected this piece by Steve Rosenbaum for Mashable because there are some excellent tips to make you a trusted source, build a loyal following and add value to the community.


I don't know about you but everytime I read a post about curation, I see something different, this one is from someone who knows what he's talking about.


Here are some highlights:


Be part of the content ecosystem


**What a curator should do is embrace content both as a marketer and an organizer


Follow a schedule


**No matter what and how much you post, 2 new links a day and one big post per week, that's a schedule


**Be consistent and post at the same time everyday so your readers will know when to expect new content


**consistency and regularity brings new users and helps you build a loyal fan base


Embrace multi platforms


**Put your work where your audience is, today you have to go to them (more about this in the article)


Engage and Participate


**Select only the best content - read everything before you hit the send button - you'll build trust by helping your readers find great content and information


**This is a great way to build relationships with bloggers and other curators (more on this in the article)


Share, Don't Steal


**Last but definitely not least, you must acknowledge the source, there are no exceptions


**When people choose to listen to you, it's because you've proven to separate the signal from the noise

Hi Jan, correct. Everytime I think "oh, I know already" But when I read the article I always find one or two things that I didn't knew already :)

The Big Boom in Content Curation

Hard to believe. But 95% of all marketers are now curating third-party content, Curata reports.


Content curation, the practice of finding and sharing online content, is now being used by almost all marketers, according to a survey by Curata (formerly HiveFire).


Of 400 firms surveyed, 95% had curated content in the last six months. And 100% of the non-curators had, in fact, shared articles or blog posts with prospects in the same period, Curata found.


Of the active curators, 45% share content daily, 33% weekly and 21% monthly. Agencies are more active than non-agencies.


Why go to the trouble of pushing third-party content?


The main reason is thought leadership—that answer was given by 85%, compared with 79% last year. Next are branding (80%) and SEO (65%)....
