Like all new technology, social media changes fast. Very fast.  Just trying to keep your head around all of the different platforms, how to approach them and, of course, how to design for them can be a full time job.

16 Call-to-Action Formulas That Make People Want to Click

16 Call-to-Action Formulas That Make People Want to Click | Virtual Options: Social Media for Business | Scoop.it
Good things happen when you create killer calls-to-action. I would even argue that your website can’t be successful unless you produce great calls-to-action.

The ideal CTA, however, isn’t always easy to think of. Sometimes, you need a little nudge in the right direction.
If you’re sick of “click now” CTAs that aren’t working, improve your game with these surefire call-to-action formulas.

Konstantinos Kalemis's curator insight, August 10, 2015 4:58 AM

 

 

Google has just introduced "Collections", for Google+, a new service which allows any Google+ user to group his posts by topic and to create public, shareable collections of his favorite links, articles, videos and images.

 

To use Google Collections, simply go to your G+ profile page and then select "Collections" on the drop down menu appearing on the top left part of the page.

 

"Each collection can be shared publicly, privately, or with a custom set of people. Once you create your first collection, your profile will display a new tab where other people can find and follow your collections."

 

You can either create new posts containing whatever type of content inside a collection, or assign an existing, published post to a collection you have just created.

 

You can create as many collections as you like.

 

Google+ Collections is available on the web and on Android (iOS coming later).

 

 

My comment: Google+ Collections adds opportunity for creating additional value to G+ users by letting interests drive community engagement. This is a feature that sooner or later any social network will offer. 

 

Free to use.

[url=/u/1994272 x-already-notified=1]Tommy Landry[/url] articulates another argument for the use of content curation by content marketers: while the main argument is saving time and resources, there are other benefits of content curation such as adding credibility to your brand message or engaging with influencers. But on top of using curation as a way to publish content, he argues that content curation is also a way to generate content ideas that will fill the gaps and be more original and impactful. In short, content curation informs content creation as others also noted


To build on Thomas'  points, I would add that the 3 following ways to practice this from my point of view. Try to look back at your own curation work and pause on a weekly basis to reflect on the following:


1 - what are the developing trends that people have been publishing on? Can you elaborate on them? 


2 - can you do roundup posts with top 5/10 pieces of content you've curated this week? 


3 - what are the things your customers or prospects are asking and that the content you've been curating does not cover: why not write a post on exactly that?
