Content Curation Tools For Brands

Content Curation Tools For Brands | Social Media Productivity | Scoop.it

Therese Torris suggested me this her interesting and long article. Excerpted from it:

 

"Content curation help brands increase their visibility and their customer engagment. 

- Content curation does help content discovery.

- Social content curation fosters customer engagement.

- Corporate curation tools help create a competitive advantage.

- But content curation is no panacea for failing content creation.

 

Most of us do “curate” content in that we collect, filter, edit, and re-dispatch online information related to the topics that are relevant to our friends and followers. We want to become the go-to person for our target audience on the topic we curate.

 

Content curation is much more than content aggregation. A brand curator handpicks the content that matches the interests of his target audience: He/she filters it to keep only the best. He/she also possibly edits and comments it, before posting the curated result on multiple media.

 

The emphasis is on “partly”: curation tools assist curators, they don’t do away with them as people able to make intelligent judgments about which content adds value to which topic and its audience.

 

***Content Curation Delivers Visibility and Engagement

a) visibility:

By organizing their content around topics shared with their audience, brands active on social curation sittes increase their chances to be discovered in a relevant context.

 

b) engagement:

Content curation does not only bring visibility, it also fosters customer engagement by adding external quality content that adds:

- Relevance;
- Unique content;
- Fresh content;
- Optimized content;
- Rich media;
- Trust;
- Entertaining content..."

 

The original article is analyzed with more information and with examples about different content curation tools. 

I thank Therese to mention me as her favorite curator. Thank you so much!

Drag and Drop News Curation: Storify for iPad Is Here

Robin Good: The new Storify news curation tool is now available for the iPad, bringing the ease of drag and drop to the curation world. 

 

"Founded in 2009, this seven person company has done a remarkable job surviving the market and being one of the major players in the world of content curation.

 

[Storify has been adopted by] 22 out of top 25 news sites in the United States...

 

Just like Twitter has their trending topics, Storify’s service allows people to keep track of the relevant social media trending topics. Users are able to tell their own story about these major events (like Whitney Houston or Greece’s economic downfall or even Madonna’s Super Bowl halftime performance), and embed them on their own website.

 

Be your own crowd-sourced storyteller, by dragging in tweets, status updates, photos, and videos from a variety of social networks in order to help you create a better story and telling experience."

 

(Source: http://bub.blicio.us/storify-launches-free-ipad-app-to-help-content-curation-on-the-go/)

 

Check out this video interview shot yesterday with the Storify team demonstrating the new app: http://youtu.be/u-Ua4LIbzMY 

 

The Storify app is free to download right from the iTunes store: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/storify/id488223180?ls=1&mt=8

Save Your Content Online With This Web App: Hopper

Save Your Content Online With This Web App: Hopper | Social Media Productivity | Scoop.it

It’s easy to be overwhelmed by the amount of content we’re bombarded with on a daily basis.

You can always save links in a text document, and keep images and other files in folders, but your OS file system wasn’t built for bookmarking.

 

Hopper lets you save content such as texts, images and links by copying and pasting it (using Ctrl + V), or just by dragging it into the webpage. You can also drag-and-drop files from your desktop.

 

That will let you get the content back whenever you need it later on. Any device that can access the Internet will let you get it back again, right as if it were on your HD or ZIP drive.

 

Hopper has got the great plus of working without registration. Accounts can be created if you want to organize your data and have it tidied up.

 

Check out it here: http://www.gethopper.com/
