Completely agree!  Many start-ups have the philosophy of their idea every big business will want and buy and/or they will be bought out by a larger corporation.  However, these are the exceptions and the article goes into examples of the reality.

How to Find Great Content? The Ultimate Guide to Content Curation

How to Find Great Content? The Ultimate Guide to Content Curation | Transforming small business | Scoop.it

So much content written on the web everyday, that sometimes finding great content to read becomes a challenge. With the onset of different social media tools, discovering awesome content to share with your community is a thrill in itself. Content Curation is unlike Content Marketing where it focuses on amalgamating content from different sources on a particular subject (in this case your favorite topic) and delivering it in an organized fashion. Being a content curator is a great responsibility, studying new points of view on different subjects and sharing it with your community which can provide value to them.

Know What Your Audience Wants Before Investing in Content Creation and Marketing - Whiteboard Friday | Transforming small business | Scoop.it

Peg Corwin's curator insight, January 25, 10:30 AM

For successful Content Marketing, 1) learn about your niche (serious research.)  2) Use social, Q and A, forums, to find topics that inspire questions and need. 3) Validate that your idea is unique and that people will share by asking to them "Would like this?"  4) Create visual and interactive content rather than text. 5) Align audience goals with business goals.


  Quote:  "VoilaNorbert.com is an email finding tool. I think it's the best one out there right now, and Conspire is a great tool for seeing who you're connected to that's connected to people you might want to reach. When you're trying to reach someone, those can be very helpful."
