10 Compelling Reasons to Brand Yourself by Curating Other People’s Content

10 Compelling Reasons to Brand Yourself by Curating Other People’s Content | Social Media: Changing Our World of Education | Scoop.it

Good piece by Adam Troudart for paper.li

 

Adam asks "Is it ethical?

 

Yes, as long as you credit the content owner and link to the content source.

 

Is it helpful? Yes, times three!

 

It helps your audience solve their problems. It helps you gain credibility and authority.

 

It helps the content owner get more traffic"

 

**** I have one thing to add here - if you like someone's curated content and you repost it on other networks, it's good to credit the curator.

 

Other headings include:

 

*** Content sells better than pitches

*** Become the go-to person

*** Engage and build connections

*** Get others to promote your posts

*** Get more quality followers

*** Use the same content on various networks

How To Effectively Combine Curation With Your Content Strategy

How To Effectively Combine Curation With Your Content Strategy | Social Media: Changing Our World of Education | Scoop.it

Margot Bloomstein, a content strategist talks about how to combine curation to your content strategy by showcasing lessons she has adopted from museum curators and so much more.

 

What caught my attention:

 

**She talks about copywriting issues. Because a curator goes way beyond aggregating which is just gathering content, they arrange it in order of relevance, point out what you should pay attention to and many other important things.  It takes a lot of thought to assemble pieces in a cohesive manner, add context to it, ad take it to the next level. 

 

**It is appropiate to give the curator credit if you're going to repost or use it in any manner.

Hey Pedro,
I am the founder of Internet Billboards, my name is Tom George. Do you think you will be curated more on this topic and building a nice Scoop.it page? The reason I ask is I can show you how you can auto share your Scoop.it selections to Internet Billboards.
