The 5 Habits of Highly Successful Content Creators - HubSpot | #TheMarketingAutomationAlert

The 5 Habits of Highly Successful Content Creators - HubSpot | #TheMarketingAutomationAlert | The Marketing Technology Alert | Scoop.it
Want to know what it takes to become a stellar content creator? Take some time to check out these five habits of great content creators to find out.


1) Read Industry-Related News Daily

Creating great content that really resonates with your target audience requires you to know what’s going on in your industry. And the best content creators scour -- not just read, but scour -- the internet for industry news and trends. This sets them up nicely to understand the context behind what’s happened historically in their industry and how that shapes their target audience's mindset in the present.

2) Write on the Regular

If you don’t use it, you lose it. Successful content creators understand the importance of constantly flexing their writing muscles. Doing so helps them work through ideas that might be jumbled in their head and identify nuggets that could turn into fully realized ideas later. Successful content creators may not always be inspired to write, but they know something inspiring can come from their writing.

3) Curate Content (When It Makes Sense)

There’s no shortage of people curating content these days. In fact, anyone on the internet can take someone else’s content and retweet it, share it on Facebook, pin it -- the list goes on. But successful content creators know it’s not enough to take relevant industry news and spit it back out to your fans and followers.

4) Network at Every Opportunity

Get in the habit of networking by seizing the countless opportunities you have to do it. They aren’t called social networks for nothing! Spend some time on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn to check out who the thought leaders are in your industry and follow them.

5) Question Everything

Polished content creators are curious by nature. They’ve learned to be curious about the internal knowledge they already have and the external information that's being promoted out in the world. It's the insights that come from this inherent curiosity that makes great content.

The Art of Building Your Twitter Following, According to Twitter - Hootsuite

The Art of Building Your Twitter Following, According to Twitter - Hootsuite | The Marketing Technology Alert | Scoop.it

"Follow people likely to engage
While it’s a no-brainer that you’ll need to follow others on Twitter in order to get followers yourself, who you follow makes a huge difference between an engaged and passive community


Create content that drives interaction
Showcase qualities in easily shareable and interesting ways. The number one way to do this is through visuals. Tweets with rich media get 313 percent greater engagement, and 52 percent more Retweets—numbers that can’t be scoffed at. With the ability to add GIFs, Vines, or attach up to four photos per Tweet, the possibilities are endless.


Track engagement
Now that your engagement and follower levels are naturally growing, it’s a good idea to keep tabs on and measure the impact of your Twitter efforts. Monitoring not only the number of followers you have, but their overall value in contributing to Twitter conversations offers important insight. It’s also recommended to monitor what Tweets are getting the most traction, as you can inform your content strategy based on findings there."

LinkedIn Kills Off Bizo Product ‘Lead Accelerator | AdExchanger

LinkedIn Kills Off Bizo Product ‘Lead Accelerator | AdExchanger | The Marketing Technology Alert | Scoop.it
During its Q4 earnings call Thursday, the company said it would kill off Lead Accelerator, the B2B lead-nurturing product that came out of the $175 million acquisition of Bizo. It was a fast death: LinkedIn launched Lead Accelerator just less than a year ago.

LinkedIn is pushing Lead Accelerator’s functionalities into sponsored updates. The potential benefit isn’t immediately obvious since Lead Accelerator was designed to help businesses reach people around the web. 

Sponsored updates is a potent ad product as long as people continue to monitor their LinkedIn feed for updates. Consequently, LinkedIn made that feed a central part of the its recently relaunched app. Users may have noticed the improved relevance of content in a feed and that it’s easier to follow publishers and consume content – important given the shift to mobile.

Azure IoT Hub is a big part of Azure IoT Suite, a bundle of products that can be used to build and run applications that integrate with connected devices.
