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 | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

This post was written by Melonie Gallegos for iMediaconnection

 

In this piece, there are 8 tips to help marketers 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

I selected this article by Bryan Kramer because it absolutely speaks to me and many of you!


Today’s modern day curator is a curator of knowledge. We have come to rely on the best to tell us what is good and what isn’t. Their history of shares heightens their status in some cases to social connoisseur, a title not easily earned.


Bryan asks this question: Have you ever read something that made you stop and think... and you saved it? You're a collector. The question is, how do you move from collector, to connoisseur?


There are 5 great takeaways in this piece......


Here's what caught my attention:


Understand the Shelf Life - News will always serve a purpose, but today’s news only last seconds. To build a story around something that drives a different perspective is what drives new opinions, conversations and communities. What you share reflects on your beliefs, so add something that lasts longer than a retweet.

Thought provoking article.

I had to stop and read "Goosebumps" twice, the down-to-earth notion of human touch mixed with quality content, is something to ponder and keep trying.

Intriguing Networks, Great to meet you here! You are so right, whether an individual or a business curates, it's the story that is woven throughout your topic or niche that gives readers a chance to connect with you at different entry points along the way. I agree with you, Scoopit is a very vibrant and generous community. Look forward to sharing more with you in the future!

Visual Boards To Curate Your Learning Topics: Learni.st

Robin Good curated this resource and it is exactly the curation tool I've been dreaming of - a visual way to curate content for learning.

 

 

Here's what Robin wrote about this:

 

 

Heiko Idensen reports in his curated newsradar "Online Curating & Social Learning Tools and Applications": "Learnist is a new pinboard where users can organize their learning materials. It resembles Pinterest except that Learnist is just for sharing learning resources.

 

The website is still in beta but looks really very promising for both teachers and students.

 

Here is a set of the main features that Learnist offers to its users :

It is free Itis easy to use It has a user friendly interface It lets users create pinboards around a certain topic Users can create different boards and invite others to collaborate on them It lets you pin images,videos, and text to your boards with a single click from Learnist bookmarklet Users can also upload resources to their  boards using URLs

Free to use.

 

Try it out: http://learni.st

Pinterest is quietly generating revenue by modifying user submitted pins.

Pinterest is quietly generating revenue by modifying user submitted pins. | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

Breaking news that Pinterest is changing user submitted pins to make money. Are they now one of the biggest affiliates on the Internet?... That's the question [note MG]

 

I swore I wasn’t going to write about Pinterest again for a while after finishing a six part series of blog posts, but major developments keeping coming and no major news organizations seems to be covering them.

 

If you post a pin to Pinterest, and it links to an ecommerce site that happens to have an affiliate program, Pinterest modifies the link to add their own affiliate tracking code. If someone clicks through the picture from Pinterest and makes a purchase, Pinterest gets paid. They don’t have any disclosure of this link modification on their site, and so far, while it has been written about, no major news outlet has picked up on the practice or its implications.

 

Pinterest doing this is big news in my opinion for two reasons:
