Platform Review: Scoop.it – Brand as Curator Comes to Life

Platform Review: Scoop.it – Brand as Curator Comes to Life | Scoop.it on the Web | Scoop.it

Brad Mays just wrote this review, focusing on the value brands could create for their customers by becoming trusted curators :

"As brands begin to find more options to tell their own story, they’ll look beyond the brand as publisher model and to the brand as curator – or becoming a convener of conversation around a topic or industry."


Brad describes his recent experience with Scoop.it Pro and how our platform help a brand to become a great resource and settle a strong relationship with their audience.  The Scoop.it Business offer was even more designed  for companies, to fulfill this mission while increasing the visibility of their own brand :


"UPDATE: Scoop.it President Marc Rougier left a nice comment related to the post. Specific to pricing he added, “I’d like to also complement your review: beyond the free version of Scoop.it, we actually launched three premium packages: Scoop.it Business ($79/month), Scoop.it Pro ($12.99/month), and Scoop.it Education ($6.99/month).” See more from Marc about the platform in the comments."

Very nice article. We particularly appreciate to read the author's point of view about Scoop.it. Thank you Shireen!


"There are two things I love about Scoop.it. First, it’s the only program of it’s kind that really gets you an authentic magazine layout that screams “read me!” Second, Scoop.it offers a 15 day free trial so you can really check it out for yourself. I’d run one or two sample campaigns in that time period and see what your comfort level is and what type of feedback you’re getting from your peers and clients."

Scoop.it – curating an online magazine | Scoop.it on the Web | Scoop.it

"One of the nice side effects of having one of my photos picked up and used in a report on food security in the face of climate change was that I came across Scoop.it for the first time. And I am glad I did because I instantly fell in love with it. Scoop.it is essentially an online curation tool that enables users to aggregate links in one place to produce an interesting and attractive looking ‘magazine’. I’ve certainly been impressed with the results and can see this as something that I will use extensively in the future."

From academic blog to academic job: using Scoop.it to showcase your work online shows others the value of digital communication skills

From academic blog to academic job: using Scoop.it to showcase your work online shows others the value of digital communication skills | Scoop.it on the Web | Scoop.it

"I spent a long time thinking how to illustrate my ability to do the above prior to my job interview by presenting my online profile in a way that showed varying types and levels of impact and engagement without giving the interview panel a long list of links. I tried different types of web portfolio software and had varying degrees of luck, however none of them illustrated the material in the way I wanted. Twitter followers recommended I create a Scoop.it, which works as an online scrap book where I could literally scoop examples of my work online and put them together as a collection or portfolio."

Scoop.it founder talks about the business model behind curation [video]

TheNextWeb Video by Hermione Way:


"Yesterday, we covered the world-wide launch of publishing platform Scoop.it- the company came out of private beta and graced the rest of the world with a tool that allows you to publish content without blogging. We spoke to Scoop.it’s CEO Guillaume Decugis who told us about the revenue model for Scoop.it which will be a monthly subscription model. Compared to the traditional model of becoming a publisher which required huge capital in setting up a newspaper, Scoop.it allows anyone to become a news outlet and share it on their social networks."

Hi Robin
Thank you very much for answering my message. I must confess that I´m a big fan of yours so I really appreciate that you actually took some time to continue sharing some ideas with me.
I´m also a great supporter of Scoop.it and Mr. Decugis´ work and it´s not my intention to question his efforts or ambitions at all. But, I think this kind of interaction is really valuable to start setting common grounds on effective content curation. Mr. Decugis himself acknowledges in his previous comment that “[the] role as a platform is to create the incentives to develop usage in the right direction.” I think this is exactly what this discussion is aiming at.
I also agree that Scoop.it can be a great curator tool. But this will happen as long as we, users, learn to be selective and dare to share more than “what other people are saying about a certain topic/interest.” By making sensible use of the “Reactions section” to comment on an article or even, sharing a completely new post without any URL attached (tools that are not so widely used among the Scoop.it community), we can start paving the way for understanding and organizing information within a relevant context. As you have suggested, this is what content curation really entails, right?
Finally, Mr. Decugis said that “through selection, users can express /show their own viewpoint.” I think that people who read my scoops want me to do more than that. They expect me to be able to somehow “mediate” the vast content content/knowledge out there and transform it into a meaningful source of information. That´s the reason why I have to resist the temptation to just rescoop this post the first time I came across it, and I decided to participate in a more significant way, instead.
Robin, I have really enjoyed this very insightful conversation. Again, thank you for this. Warm regards.
Mayra

Interview with Guillaume Decugis, Scoop.it CEO

Giorgio Fontana, editor in chief at web-target.com, an italian-english magazine about email marketing, web marketing and the flow of online information, contacted us few days ago. He wanted to make an interview about scoop.it, which he started to use and appreciate.


Guillaume, our CEO, answered to him.


"1. Basically, Scoop.it allows everyone to create a magazine – to be a publisher. And from this point of view it's great, because it's indeed extremely simple to use. But my question is: to what kind of reader does it point? Is it just a technical tool to put contents together or is the internal community of other “scoopers” to be the real key?


Both. Our vision from the start was to help people express themselves and thus find their audience in the Web noise of today. Initially, Scoop.it started being used as an easy-to-use way to find an audience of readers through the following mechanism"
