Good questions but I think digital curation has different dynamics and also purposes. What do you think?

Totally agree with the concept that sometimes less truly is more. One of the hardest skills to develop is to sort out what is truly important.

6 Social Media Rules You Should Follow For Maximum Effectiveness

6 Social Media Rules You Should Follow For Maximum Effectiveness | The Twinkie Awards | Scoop.it

Social media is critical for your business. You can’t do without it. If you do choose to go with it, you’d ideally be spending all your productive time on conversations, responses, comments, sharing, and small talk — not exactly a great way to spend your day.


Social does have plenty of opportunities across the board for small businesses and marketers but doing a lot of it is a huge opportunity cost for your business.


Random dabbling with social media content won’t get you anything. You’d, at best, need a performance-based approach to social media marketing, as Jon Wade at Clickz.com points out.


How do you get the best of social media without spending too much time, an arm, and a leg? What rules should you set-aside for yourself before venturing out with your social media accounts?


Here are a few tips for you:

Quote from Danny Sullivan of Search Engine Land: "

Publishers allow search engines to index their content, which is used by the search engines as the core content they can put lucrative ads around.


In return, search engines have provided traffic to publishers and data on how those publishers are found. That latter part of the ‘deal’ was unilaterally pulled by Google.”""

Level343's curator insight, October 17, 2013 10:51 PM

For several years, traditional marketers have agreed to live with ridiculously low conversion rates for the placement and distribution of banner ads and email ads, with one template for sending messages to an immense target audience.

 

Traditional marketing usually needs substantial investment up front and large-scale placement and distribution, without assurance that marketers reach the most suitable customers.

 

In contrast, personalized marketing may be patterned or modeled from hundreds to hundreds of thousands of target audiences. Through a group of social media users, marketers can use social profiles and behavior data to tailor messages with higher significance, efficiency, and value.

Pinterest Lead Generation 101: Best Practices and Hacks That'll Make You a Pro

Pinterest Lead Generation 101: Best Practices and Hacks That'll Make You a Pro | The Twinkie Awards | Scoop.it

Excerpt from article on HubSpot:
"Pinterest users spend the most money of users on popular social networks -- nearly double the amount of money spent from Facebook users and triple the amount from Twitter users. This means that there's lots of potential leads and customers just waiting to be engaged and converted who will probably spend a decent amount with you.

Pinterest is actually a fairly simple social media network as far as lead generation goes, because there's really only two ways to generate leads right now. So we'll walk you through both types of lead generation and how you can optimize pins to make the most of those lead generation opportunities.

On Pinterest, there are two types of leads you can generate: direct and indirect. It all boils down to where Pinterest is on the conversion path.

 

Here's the difference between the two:
- Direct Leads: Direct leads are generated through content on Pinterest that links directly back to a landing page on your website. On that landing page, visitors can share their personal information in exchange for an offer.

- Indirect Leads: Indirect leads are generated by using Pinterest on the path to conversion -- but it's not the final destination before someone gets to a landing page.

Unlike other social media platforms, Pinterest really only has a one effective place where you can generate direct or indirect leads: through pins.

How to Optimize Your Pins for Lead Generation:
1) Create a board that your Pinterest audience can -- and will want to -- discover.
2) Create images that Pinterest users naturally notice.
3) Don't use UTM parameters or shortened links in your pin URL.
4) Use your description wisely.
5) Add a hashtag, if relevant.
6) Rinse, repeat.
7) Promote your pins elsewhere.
8) Keep track of your success with a few different tools..."

Each point is anlyzed with more information and external useful links.
