7 Qualities of Highly Effective Content Curators

7 Qualities of Highly Effective Content Curators | Diva Digital Ventures | Scoop.it

Excerpt from article written by Dennis Shiao and published on Scoop.it Blog:
"Every time I visit the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City, I see something I’ve never seen before.
Wouldn’t it be great if our content collections drew as much interest, respect and admiration as the collections at MoMA? In order to achieve this feat, we need to become highly effective content curators.
Let’s consider seven habits:


1. Focus on Goals

What are your goals around content curation? If you can’t answer that question, stop right now. Stop reading this post, too. Go answer the question, then return when you’re done.


2. Have Empathy

You’ll need to have empathy for your target audience. In other words, the better you understand their thoughts, interests and challenges, the more effective you’ll be at content curation.

3. Be Careful, Cautious and Selective
Make sure you read (and digest) every piece of content you curate. Curate high quality content only, leaving the marginal pieces to the proverbial cutting room floor.

4. Editorialize
Don’t just share content, tell us why you like (or dislike) the piece. What can your target audience learn from reading it and what are the key takeaways? In a sense, editorializing creates a nice blend of creation and curation.

5. Provide Attribution
Providing attribution shows respect and helps drive visibility and awareness to content authors. As you curate, look up the author of the article (or blog post) and explicitly acknowledge them.

6. Understand What’s Timely and Trending
Sharing fresh milk is good. Sharing spoiled milk is rotten.
If you find content that is time sensitive, consider whether the “sharing window” has already passed.

7. Have an Eye for a Great Title
Not everyone will be as thorough as you when reviewing content. A lot of people will click on a link solely because of a compelling title. As you sharpen your curating skills, you’ll begin to figure out what separates great titles from good titles. If you come across a great article that has just a good title, consider changing the title text when you curate..."

Great tips for new or would-be curators

Randi Thompson's curator insight, February 18, 2014 7:16 PM

The content you share (the articles or what ever) is how you attract the people who are interested in what you have to offer.  What do you need to do to get their attention?

Therese Torris's curator insight, February 19, 2014 4:29 AM

There are 100s of very similar lists of basic advice. I scoop one every now and then because, at the end of the day, it's the basic priorities that cost us most when we  fail to meet them. Thus, this is good advice for beginners as well as other content curators

Diva Digital Ventures shares valuable digital marketing scoops. As digital marketers we monitor things like what is being viewed, how often and for how long, sales conversions, what content works and doesn’t work, etc. While the Internet is, perhaps, the channel most closely associated with digital marketing, others include social media, text messaging, mobile instant messaging, mobile apps, podcasts, electronic billboards, digital television and more.

Loom - Video email in Gmail

Loom - Video email in Gmail | Diva Digital Ventures | Scoop.it

Description by The Scout Report

"Readers looking for a new screen recording tool may want to check out Loom, a free Google Chrome browser extension that allows users to capture what they see on their screen and easily share with others. Once downloaded, the tool requires a Google or Microsoft account to get started. Users then have the option to simply capture what is on the screen, or use microphone audio and webcam features for more detailed annotation. Saved videos may be shared with other users, downloaded, or posted to social media accounts. Loom is currently only available for Google Chrome, but may soon be available for other browsers."
