Content's New Life Cycle - 4 Important Steps to Build & Maintain Your Brand

Content's New Life Cycle - 4 Important Steps to Build & Maintain Your Brand | Social media culture | Scoop.it

This piece was written by Aaron Dunn for Content Marketing Institute.

 

These steps apply to your overall content marketing strategy whether you're creating or curating content.

 

The challenge:

 

**Companies are now left trying to make sense of which ones they should be paying attention to, what they need to be doing in these channels to gain a competitive advantage, and how it all ties into their overall content marketing strategy.

 

The solution:

 

**In today’s rapidly shifting web, it’s essential that companies start to take a more holistic approach to content marketing and connect more effectively with their various stakeholders across a number of web and social channels. 

 

Here are the four steps:

 

As we awaken to the new realities of content, here are four ways to rethink your content execution, and take advantage of the new content life cycle.

 

**Structure your content marketing strategy as a holistic system that allows you to connect more effectively with various stakeholders across a number of social channels, drive conversation, and influence customers.

 

**Open up content contribution to more users across the organization, providing more opportunities to connect with and engage customers in social channels, and extend your online reach.

 

**Be sure to remove any technology or process roadblocks that inhibit the expansion of your contributor pool — the more people who are able to contribute easily, the more content you will have to push across your channels.

 

**Deliver fresh, compelling and timely content that engages users and keeps visitors returning to your site, and then be sure to extend that content into your social channels.

 

**Be sure you are listening to the online conversations of your target audience, and optimize your content and content strategy based on the insights you gather from them.

When Everyone is Tweeting, Who is Paying Attention?

When Everyone is Tweeting, Who is Paying Attention? | Social media culture | Scoop.it

Food for thought from Toddi Gutner for Business2Community:

 

I found this piece particularly interesting and wanted to call your attention to it. It's one of those things we all experience everyday, but do we really stop to ask ourselves this question:

 

****Are You Mobilizing Communities or Just a Voice in the Crowd?

 

I've personally covered events online, tweeting the main points live and although I was able to filter and capture the essence of what was going on, I had to go back and really absorb the information and then try to apply it to my business effectively. (not always an easy task) :-)

 

It's a juggling act but one I think we're all experiencing on one level or another.

 

Excerpt:

 

Continuous Partial Attention (CPA) is the process of paying simultaneous but superficial attention to a number of sources of incoming information.

 

This term, coined by writer and consultant Linda Stone in 1998, aptly describes the scene at the recent Council of Public Relations Firms Critical Issues Forum on Social Revolution:

 

This is what particularly caught my attention:

 

**What was the unintended consequence (UC) - these being outcomes that are not intended by a purposeful action?

 

**They can be positive, negative or have a perverse effect contrary to what was originally intended.

 

 

****So are there any unintended consequences to compulsively tweeting from an event or otherwise?

 

This is a question I have yet to answer. It is sort of like waiting to see what the side effects of a drug will be years after it has been approved.

 

One UC of CPA may be that peoples’ attention spans (already truncated by USA Today and sound bite television) and

 

**related ability for analytic thought will be reduced to nanoseconds.

 

I'd love to hear your Thoughts?

I just rescooped this article because I found it in another source, but here I look further into your collection and find it. I'm curating on the topic information overload and coping skills. I believe that curation can help you pay attention. I experienced this myself .. I was a conference. Many people were tweeting. I was tracking it with storify - doing content curation in real time with twitter versus tweeting helped me pay attention, quickly put together a coherrent record of what happened and make it unstandable to people not in the room.

I have covered a few conferences in real-time and it definitely makes you pay attention on more than one level. Being able to put it in a cohesive manner helping people understand what's happening is an art in itself and something you do very well.

50 Great Content Ideas to Create Buzz

50 Great Content Ideas to Create Buzz | Social media culture | Scoop.it

I selected this article from conversationagent today not only does it have some great tips for creating compelling content but it gives you examples of people who are doing a good job with each suggestion.

 

These ideas can be used for content curators as well - to create buzz and build an audience, providing "context" is what sets you apart from others - these tips are ways to accomplish that.

 

"Connecting ideas and people -- how talk can change our lives".

 

 

 

Here are a few things that caught my attention:

 

**. Make digestible bits of advice in micro-interactions gain big impact. Kellye Crane built a community for #soloPR practitioners off a Twitter chat filled with useful advice.

 

** Create a new list. People like to see where things stack against each other. By far, the most popular list is still the one Todd And created and AdAge took over.

 

** Give away secrets and tips to help others become more effective. Adam Singer is very generous in that regard.

 

** Teach something new or from a new perspective. Kathy Sierra has been able to do that on a topic that for many was considered not quite appealing

.

** Inspire people to take action and change the world. Entrepreneur Chris Guilleabeau is a good example of that.

 

** Be opinionated about future trends. That's a trait that is best exemplified by Robert Scoble.

 

** Track and review future trends from behind the scenes. A good guide is Louis Gray.

 

**Create a conversation around a social object. That's what Hugh MacLeod does.

 

** Become the expert hub on a subject matter. The consistent "go to" person for branding is the team at Branding Strategy Insider.

Is Pinterest the 'next big thing' in social media?

Is Pinterest the 'next big thing' in social media? | Social media culture | Scoop.it

Yesterday I selected a post by Elad Gil who talked about Pinterest changing the way we share and consume information on the web.  Today I have selected another article by Don Reisinger  for Cnet News - digital home, who says, "let's not jump to conclusions here and has more to say about this.

 

I do admit I'm participating on many betas because I feel the need to stay informed. I'm not usually drawn to every new thing that comes along but somehow, Pinterest has caught my eye.

 

Let's take a look at why Pinterest is becoming one of the most popular social networks, what's really happening here?

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

**Pinterest so far has been the only company to distinguish itself. Late last month, Experian Hitwise, a company that monitors consumer behavior on the Web, reported that Pinterest had 11 million visits during the week ended December 17, jumping 4,000 percent compared with six months earlier.

 

**The massive bump catapulted Pinterest to the 10th spot in Experian's listing of the most popular social networks, just behind Yelp. Experian also discovered that Pinterest has found a loyal following in women.

 

**In the past three months, women have accounted for 58 percent of its userbase, and nearly 60 percent of those women are between the ages of 25 and 44.

 

**Opinions are mixed over why Pinterest has been able to attract such a large audience.

 

**Is it the service's solid design? Is it the attention it has received from media outlets shocked by its growth?

 

**Is it, perhaps, the fact that it recently raised $26 million from venture-capital firm Andreessen Horowitz, giving it bundles of cash to play with? It could be all that.

 

**But Gil thinks it might also have something to do with its ease-of-use.

 

**"Pinterest was one of the first sites to take push button content generation (via bookmarklets and 're-pinning') and structure it into sets of curated content called 'boards

 

**This allowed users to collect content from across the Web, as well as from other users on the site.

 

Reisinger ends his article with a word of caution:

 

**"Pinterest has yet to offer its service publicly. And once it finally moves beyond its invite-only phase, the company will be truly tested."

 

Followed by the question: 

 

**"will the mainstream Web user who typically joins the social game after early adopters pick up their invites, find value in it?"

 

** Chances are, we'll get the answers to those questions later this year.
