5 Ways to Use Content Curation for Marketing and Tools to Do It - Forbes

5 Ways to Use Content Curation for Marketing and Tools to Do It - Forbes | Scoop.it on the Web | Scoop.it

"Content curation is a form of content marketing where a publisher (in this case, a small business) editorially collects the best content related to a specific niche and targeted to a specific audience then enhances that content by adding personal opinions and expertise. That enhanced content delivers added value to the target audience who consumes it after it’s published."


Susan Gunelius wrote this interesting piece on Forbes detailing the various ways small businesses can leverage Content Curation. She kindly mentioned Scoop.it as one of the main platforms to curate an"online magazine related to your indsutry or topic of choice".

Scoop.it : Curating Made Easy, Social Sharing With Wings. | Scoop.it on the Web | Scoop.it

"As startup marketers, we particularly seek solutions to cut through crowds of content to engage more than just friends and followers, but much larger (incremental) audiences drawn to the same topics and interests. And then there was Scoop.it: curating made easy, content sharing with Red Bull (ish) wings."


Michelle Fitzgerald, the founder of Get Scrappy interviewed me last week as part of her "Think Big, Act Small" series which focuses on Content Marketing for Startups and SMB's with industry innovators.


We talked about the interest graph, what Scoop.it brings to it and how startups can leverage it.

Merci, Denise et Pierre ; je n'avais pas de crise existentialiste sur le sujet et rebondissais juste, sur l'article, en avouant que je n'utilisais pas Scoop.it comme il s'était vu. Mais c'est ça : créer ; les gens, ensuite font ce qu'ils sentent... Si j'ai paru énervé ou je ne sais, c'était à cause de la panne de Twitter que l'on pouvait prendre pour une attaque d'extrémistes... Bonne soirée à vous !

Why do I need to curate content?

Why do I need to curate content? | Scoop.it on the Web | Scoop.it

This is a post by Gianluca Fiorelli - the SEO expert and consultant - on socialmedia.biz orginally titled "Take charge of the curation wave with these slick tools" (and yes, Scoop.it is one of them: thanks!). But beyond the look at the tools (which I avoid doing being obviously biased), I think the second part on "why curation" was interesting.


When we started working on a Social Curation platform that could introduce a new way of publishing media for everyone, we weren't sure how this will play with traditional web-discovery techniques such as SEO. We felt Search engines should take pay attention to social curators but of course we had no way to tell Google what to do. So it's all the more satisfying to see how Search changed to become social-friendly and to see how the SEO community has embraced curation.


Gianluca also published a more complete guide on curation on SEOmoz blog.

StartupLive | Scoopit Co-Founder Guillaume Decugis talks curation and it's benefits at SxSWi | Scoop.it on the Web | Scoop.it

Arabella Santiago is the founder of Startup Live and the Executive Director of the TechWeek conference in Chicago where I'm speaking in a few months. We had a discussion on the role of curation as an expression form in Austin at SxSWi a few weeks ago and we also touched upon the topic of the coming TechWeek session which is about the trend of remixing content to create something new: "No one wants to be duplicating content, but if you quote content and you put content in context then you can create something which has higher value than the original.


It's something we have gotten used to in Music with DJ's and rappers sampling and remixing songs but that the Web makes possible for everyone to do with any form of content. Having been a music entrepreneur before, I like this analogy and I think it shows quite well how a whole creativity potential can be unleashed by new tools and platforms.

"Guillaume Decugis couldn’t pinpoint why he wasn’t blogging.  It’s not like he didn’t want to write – being a published author has been a dream of his since he was a teenager. Instead of forcing what wasn’t, Decugis co-founded Scoop.it, an interest-based curation platform."


What trends should we be looking for with the future of the interest graph? How will the social graph play into the interest graph? Who or what do you see as your greatest competition? What will it take for Scoop.it to prevail?


These are some of the questions we covered with Zach Davis from TechCocktail.

"It is really about how the cyber world is changing and shaping the needs and expectations which have evolved beyond mere key word search and how services like Scoop.it will meet those because Google won’t."


In this vibrant praise of Scoop.it, blogger Shred Pillai points out the changes we're seeing in the way we look for information. From basic search, we now look more and more for meaning and context from human experts. And this is what Scoop.it is curation is all about.

10 Steps To Curate Your Social Media Content With Scoop.it for Increased Value | Social Media Pearls

10 Steps To Curate Your Social Media Content With Scoop.it for Increased Value | Social Media Pearls | Scoop.it on the Web | Scoop.it
This is a very precise guide to using Scoop.it that Shirley Williams published on Social Media Pearls. We love the way she shared her introduction to Scoop.it:

"First, Let me share a story on my introduction to Scoop.it. I wrote a blogpost on “storytelling”. I received a trackback to Scoop.it. I followed it to find a curated post by Karen Dietz sharing her perspective and summary of my post with my link still intact. I used this new platform to thank her and started following her web-magazine (Just Story It). The outcome: Karen gained a new targeted follower and I gained new traffic to my site. Another curator, Martin Gysler did exactly the same; I really liked his posts and I started to follow him but this time I joined Scoop.it!"

A lot of you have commented on why you liked Scoop.it first because it was simple but stocked to it because of the community it provided. We love to see that happen!

How To Curate Content and Build Authority With Scoop.it | Scoop.it on the Web | Scoop.it

Great intro to Scoop.it from basicblogtips.com, Ileane Smith's blog:

"Scoop.it allows us to keep a visual collection of the stories that hold our interest. You might compare it to Pinterest in some ways but for me, it’s so much more. You get to shine the spotlight on your favorite images but more importantly – you can gather snippets of information in an organized collection based on your topic of interests. Curating a topic helps build your authority and helps keep you focused. There are some added benefits that you’ll learn more about in this post (and in the video)"

Teaching Students to Become Curators of Ideas: The Curation Project

Teaching Students to Become Curators of Ideas: The Curation Project | Scoop.it on the Web | Scoop.it

"Over the last couple of years, I’ve come to think of my role as a teacher as that of a curator of ideas" says Corinne Weisgerber who teaches Social Media and Communication at St Edwards Unniversity in Austin, TX (if you haven't yet, check out her great prez here).


As she explained in this post, the Curation Project was about getting her students "to set up a network of online mentors using social media tools" and "to identify experts in their field and connect with them in order to build a personal learning network (PLN)." 


The idea behing the PNL is to help them discover valuable information through social search that they wouldn't have discovered otherwise.


Interesting project and read.


And great work by the students who used various curation platforms for the project, including Storify and Scoop.it (links in the post)
