Thought it might be an interesting exercise to revisit key posts from Scenttrail Marketing. Curation Is The Next Web Revolution is why I got to play with

After one of's founders, Marc Rougier, read this post they offered to let me play with their cool new tool while still in beta. Curation Is The Next Web Revolution feels more true today than when it was first shared in early 2011.

Curation is the best way to test content as I described in How I Use ( We are so committed to content curation we are building a new tool called CrowdFunde to help websites understand what content helps them the most.

No doubt in our mind content curation is what's next. What about you? Are you curating content? Share how you use tools like, G+, or your blog to create effective content marketing and we will share with our tribe.

Is Your Business Monitoring What Matters On Social Media? [INFOGRAPHIC]

Is Your Business Monitoring What Matters On Social Media? [INFOGRAPHIC] | Surviving Social Chaos |

A recent study revealed that almost half of companies are not monitoring their online social media communities.

More than one-third said that they only measure Likes, comments and interactions on Facebook, with fewer than one in four actively measuring the ROI of their social media campaigns.

Social media affects your bottom line; brands that are proactively using these tools see numerous benefits. And for those that aren’t, the absence of social media can also impact their bottom lines, albeit in a very different way.

This infographic takes a closer look at why the shift to in-depth social media monitoring is critical for the modern business.

The recent SEC ruling on Regulation FD may bring more attention to social media monitoring.

Drew Hodges's curator insight, February 19, 5:58 PM

This article looks at how we have almost become lazy with our sampling methods. For example when we look up keyword searches like a brand name, it is more effective to look at the whole conversation. Another common metric we use is using sample sets of data, although there is so much data it would be impossible to look at every single piece of data, it is important to set a sample size big enough so that the data has minimal outliers. For example a sample size of 10 might give you a totally different picture than a sample size of 100.  


What is not talked about in this article that was touched on in class was the idea of getting the whole picture. For example with software they may be using keywords like they say in the article but it may not have the typical connotation when read in context of the statement.

Join Brands Don't Buy Them
Agree with this infographic about what makes people loyal to brands. Brands are shorthand for contemporary life. We bundle so much meaning into brands such as Nike, Apple and REI that it would be hard to imagine modern life without these shortcuts. 

Faith Popcorn famously said people don't BUY brands they JOIN them and these "loyalty" reasons can help form a brand people want to join.
