Content Curation Reduces Information Overload

Content Curation Reduces Information Overload | Strategy and Information Analysis | Scoop.it

Over 100,000 new WordPress blogs are created every day, there’s 40 hours worth of video uploaded to YouTube every minute and there are 5,340 new websites created every hour.

 

“Content Curation” is providing the answer!

Find a good curator of a subject and follow their activity.

You can trust them and rely on them to find the good stuff online, saving you time and effort.

 

It can also provide a way of reducing information overload amongst your potential customers, thereby giving them a reason to stay loyal to you and make it more likely they will buy from you.

 

Equally, if you curate content in specialist areas relating to your customer needs, you will gain reputation, visitors, followers – all the things you need to ensure your online presence is high.

#1. You can add your content to your own blog

#2. Set up a new blog just for curated content or

#3. Add the material to a curation service

 

Whichever system you choose, the mere fact that you are curating content will help your business because in the explosion of information which is happening right now, people are looking for clarity.

 

The people who provide that will be the winners.

You can make your mark by being a content curator.

The Three S’s of Content Curation: Seek, Sense, Share

The Three S’s of Content Curation:  Seek, Sense, Share | Strategy and Information Analysis | Scoop.it

Content curation is a three-part process: Seek, Sense, and Share.

 

Finding the information or “seeking” is only one third of the task. Making sense of the information is just as important. However you create meaning, but it has to support your organization’s communications objectives or your professional learning goals.Finally, sharing is about giving the best nuggets of content to your audience in a format that they can easily digest.

Putting content curation into practice is part art form, part science, but mostly about daily practice.

To Be An Effective Curator You Need To Be an Information DJ

To Be An Effective Curator You Need To Be an Information DJ | Strategy and Information Analysis | Scoop.it


Robin Good: In analyzing what is going on in the brain when a potentially viral idea is intercepted, Matthew Lieberman (who designed the study with Emily Falk at UCLA) discovered something that confirms how important it is that an effective curator be "in tune" with his own audience. 

 

Great curation is not just about "spinning" the newest and coolest, but to precisely cater to the specific audience interests, expectations and preferences.

 

Interesting, fascinating story. Truthful. Insightful. 8/10

The Three Eras of Knowledge Management

The Three Eras of Knowledge Management | Strategy and Information Analysis | Scoop.it

Nancy Dixon focuses on the people side of knowledge management. Our most effective knowledge sharing tool is conversation. The words we choose, the questions we ask, and the metaphors we use to explain ourselves, are what determine our success in creating new knowledge, as well as sharing that knowledge with each other.

 

In a video she describes the Three Eras of knowledge management and explains Where Knowledge Management has Been and Where it is Going.

 

Initially management only valued explicit knowledge as evidenced by the resources put against building repositories, then they developed an appreciation for the experiential knowledge of employees and allocated resources to build communities, and now there is a growing acknowledgement of the sensemaking capabilities of employees and an accompanying willingness to provide the resources to convene groups for that purpose.

 

So, the third era is about the creation or development of ideas that have not existed before. It is not the management of anything organizational members have learned through their work experience, but what they create jointly when they are brought together in an environment that supports the use of collective knowledge. That support includes convening, cognitive diversity and transparency.

Why You Need To Curate Content and How To Be A Master At It

Why You Need To Curate Content and How To Be A Master At It | Strategy and Information Analysis | Scoop.it

 

This is a great piece by Heidi Cohen on why your marketing needs content curation and 12 attributes of a successful curation strategy.  This is one of the best articles I've seen on this topic in a very long time.

 

As I said, I've seen many pieces on curation but if you're like me, everytime I read about this, I always find something new or am reminded of ways I can polish what I'm doing.

 

Here are some of the highlights.........

 

Intro:

 

Why Your Marketing Needs Content Curation

 

At its core, content curation is like a great editor or blogger who brings his unique taste and understanding of his target audience to his selection of the best content for his readers.

 

**He provides context for the content so that it's more than a collection of information

 

3 Reasons your content marketing strategy needs content curation:

 

1. Offering your audience a combination of original and third party content provides a branded context for your work

 

2. Curating other people's content positions you and/or your organization as a tastemaker in your field

 

3. Creating sufficient content is a marketing and business challenge

 

12 Attributes of a successful content curation strategy:

 

Here are a few things that caught my attention:

 

 *Has defined measurable goals

 

As part of your content marketing strategy and by extension

your marketing plan, content curation needs objectives that

are associated with your business.

 

**Targets a specific audience

 

. *Content curation like other forms of content marketing requires

understanding your readers' marketing persona

 

** Involves a community

 

*As with any social media or content marketing, your

audience should be at the heart of your content efforts.

 

**Clay Shirky says it best:

 

"Curation comes up when people

realize that it isn't just about information seeking, it's also

about synchronizing a community"
