Brand Thyself Forbes Instructs Startup Entrepreneurs

Brand Thyself Forbes Instructs Startup Entrepreneurs | Startup Revolution | Scoop.it
Catherine Kaputa image via SelfBrand.com Starting a business is usually the result of a personal dream or need. Investors tell me that they invest in people, more than the idea.


**** Not sure I am 100% all the way where this article takes us, but is branding yourself always a good idea? Absolutley yes since brands create a shorthand and "Made To Stick" way to know who you are and what you are all about. Problem is it is hard to THINK about personal branding in real life and real time without coming across as too scripted and calculated.


That doesn't mean you can't take what is out there about you, the stuff you created in an organic way, and build on it. I created "revolution" feeds on Scoop.it at least partially because my brand is marketing rebel. By creating Mobile, Ecommerce and Curation Revolution feeds I stoke that fire.

Good points and Forbes continues to be spot on the digital revolution.

Clipboard: A Slick New Way to Save and Share the Web

Clipboard: A Slick New Way to Save and Share the Web | Startup Revolution | Scoop.it

It’s tempting to compare Clipboard, a new service that’s launching today, to Pinterest. Actually, it’s irresistible: Clipboard, like Pinterest, lets you collect interesting tidbits from all over the web, then share them in “boards” which piece together all the tidbits on one page. And Clipboard, unlike Pinterest, lets you share web content of all sorts: images, videos, text and more, preserving the original layout and formatting.

But Clipboard isn’t just a Pinterest variant. It’s also a way to save parts of the web for later reference without ever sharing them with anyone else — something I’ve been doing lately with Evernote — and therefore a useful research tool as much as an exercise in social networking.

**** I just curated a piece of Robin's into Curation Revolution explaining there are times when a straight scoop or curation without much comment makes sense. This excellent summary of Robin's is a perfect example. The other thing I keep in mind on my straight scoops, curation without much comment, is where am I curating too. If I were moving Robin's notes and this new Display Note tool into my blog or my Technorati startups series I would write more, but it can be safely "Scooped" into my Startups feed inside of Scoop.it because that is where I share cool tools like this one. Sometimes I scoop naked first and then go back and fill notes in after I've had a chance to take a pass through the tool. I do this to rescue the piece so I don't lose it back into the sea of STUFF I review daily.

This "naked scoop" reflects one way I use Scoop.it to support curation. When I see something cool, something I don't want to forget, I move it to one of my feeds as a way of archiving and tagging (been meaning to get better about tagging inside of Scoop.it too since know it could save tons of time). When I am writing about mobile I check my Mobile Revolution feed for helpful factoids, authors and blogs. One role this cool tool plays is writer's assistant and note archive.

If I were writing about SlideShare-like tools I would return to this scoop and check out DisplayNote and any other similar new tools stored there as reference and helpful information, but for today, there might be little to add other than, "cool, agree with Robin and will look into it". Part of what Robin and other curators I trust do for my curation is to reduce my sourcing time. Another role to help me form up those philosophical areas I curate such as curation itself, marketing and branding. Robin and Michael also teach me new things almost every day. They keep my mind OPEN as it has to be to achieve any success in Internet marketing.

For what they do I am grateful and hopefully show my gratitude with the high respect I have for great curation and each of them. Robin and Michael (maxOz) don't need my credit, but they appreciate my input, respect and admiration. Admiration because only a fellow curator knows just how hard all of this is despite how easy they (and all great curators) make it appear.

Share Your Favorite Products: New Tool Wanelo

Share Your Favorite Products: New Tool Wanelo | Startup Revolution | Scoop.it

From Official Site:

"Wanelo is social store curated by the community. Users post, collect and organize products and follow people and stores they like.
Wanelo comes from the words WAnt, NEed and LOve.

How to use Wanelo
- post your product finds from any online store.
- browse others' finds and save them. saving is like voting a product up - more saves means higher placement on the homepage.
- if people like your taste, they will follow you. more followers + more saves = more visibility for you."

 

From review on TechCrunch:

"The eCommerce world is starting to warm up to the future of online shopping: Social curation. Call it the “Pinterest-effect” — People are embracing the idea that bookmarking and social sharing slowly are replacing search with regards to product discovery.

Wanelo is a site that allows users to bookmark and share their favorite products via a grid layout and high-res imagery.

 

The startup allows you to follow your Facebook friends in addition to top site users — resulting in a more personalized product feed than that of just celebrity selections. To post an item to Wanelo enter a product URL, tag the item with categories, and add price and other details. Users can browse through Wanelo items by popularity, recency, or by people and stores that they follow.


Site founder Deena Varshavskaya says:

“Pinterest is a great product and it solves the curation problem for images,” Varshavskaya tells me, ”It contains products as well, but that’s not their focus, so users don’t go to Pinterest to shop. They go there to collect things like recipes. Wanelo has nothing but products and users know that, so they come to Wanelo to shop. Users on Wanelo have much more purchase intent”
