Some of our cover editor features are: No visible watermark or branding on final image, very fast and responsive, you can blend profile picture seamlessly with timeline cover background or in other words you can make your profile photo and cover look integrated as one image, you draw or add text, and many more. We also have tons of cool graphic clipart from our partner sites which exclusively available only for our cover editor. You just need to browse them and copy paste the GRAPHIC ID of your desired image to our editor, and,.. presto!.. your chosen graphic is added and ready to combine with your photo.

8 Tips to Get Your Brand on the Social Curation Boom and Beyond

8 Tips to Get Your Brand on the Social Curation Boom and Beyond | Virtual Options: Social Media for Business | Scoop.it

This post was written by Melonie Gallegos for iMediaconnection

 

In this piece, there are 8 tips to help marketers can get in on the social curation boom in a meaningful way - that means Pinterest and beyond!

 

Here's an excerpt:

 

"Curation is a long-standing tradition of collecting, saving & organizing objects. Today it takes on a different meaning. Organizataions have evolved from collecting artifacts to digital curation of media and content"

 

When human behavior shifts and it certainly has, (more about that in the article), brands are quick to follow suit.

 

Here are some highlights:

 

There are a lot of websites offfering curation-type services

 

To get a clear sense of how a brand might leverage curation in this article, they have broken them down into categories.

 

**social bookmarking and news

 

**sharing

 

**Aggregation and syndication networks

 

**There are 8 ways your brand can get in on the action

 

Here are a few that caught my attention:

 

Become a curator creator

 

**Create your own Pinterest board and it's more than just slapping images, it takes thought, strategy, being part of the community and continually showing up

 

**appreciating other people's content and having two-way conversations

 

Create an Interest-based content strategy

 

**Focus on the interests of your audience, not your products and services!

 

**Allign their real-life interests with your brand position
