4 ways to integrate Scoop.it with WordPress

4 ways to integrate Scoop.it with WordPress | Virtual Options: Social Media for Business | Scoop.it

Before we even launched our public version, we recognized that a lot of content curators were also occasional or regular bloggers and started to offer ways to integrate with Wordpress - the leading blogging platform. Since then, we've seen a lot of our users leverage this integration as well as more and more of our Enterprise clients wanting to combine content curation through Scoop.it and the CMS capabilities of Wordpress for their sites. So we've multiplied the ways you could integrate with a Wordpress site or blog and here's a recap of how to make this work.

Ally Greer's curator insight, May 16, 7:20 PM

Jantsch, the founder of Duct Take Marketing, is an extremely intelligent marketer and social seller. I automatically buy into everything he writes because he writes with genuine experience and desire to help his audience.


That said, this post is a great one for me as a brand new Director of Content with increasing goals focused on lead generation. As a content person, I'm constantly thinking of how I can produce content that can lead to ROI, rather than solely focusing on how many people will read or share each post that I write. I think it's interesting to take a look at lead generation through content from a different angle; an angle that looks at prospects besides potential customers.


In fact, working together with non-competing businesses and the like is not only extremely beneficial for the validity of your own brand but also gives you access to an entire new community that you might not have reached before.
