Charlie Dare's curator insight, April 21, 9:48 AM
From curator~ " Elliott explains the process of how to edit your articles and improve your writing at the same time. Here's what caught my attention: It's important to first do planning and research before the writing begins. Use an outline of the structure with a beginning, middle, and end. After writing a post give yourself some time to process it. Save the editing process after you have completed your article. Read your completed work out loud to yourself. Notice the flow of the piece, and whether there were any mistakes you may have missed.

I selected this article by Jenn Hermann who is doing a 12 month series for Curatti on how to use Instagram to create amazing results for your business. I had the great pleasure of meeting Jenn on Instagram and she knows what she's talking about!


Here's an intro:


"If you’re struggling with how to use Instagram as part of your marketing strategy, it might be because you don’t know what to do and what not to do."


Here are some highlights that caught my attention:


Complete your bio with relevant information


Include your website in the bio – this is the only place where you can include a hyperlink


Do NOT share every Instagram post to Facebook or Twitter. Give people a reason to follow you here


Do not follow everyone that follows you – follow only those with similar interests or engagement


Thank and engage with everyone who commented on your post and use the @ before their name otherwise they won't see it

About ScissorsflyIn the spirit of freedom and creativity, we designed Scissorsfly. For the first time ever, you will be equipped with something that frees your imagination to creatively collect and organize everything you love on the web, and share them with friends.

Scissorsfly originates from an open hackathon hosted at LinkedIn, when Sillicon Valley tech talents from places like Google, Twitter, LinkedIn, or CMU, MIT, Stanford, Berkerly came to play. We won the championship with the idea called ClipIt, which becomes the magic scissors at your hand today. 

Web 1.0 gave you static webpages. Web 2.0 gives you interactions and collaborations with the web and the world. Scissorsfly will give you not only that, but also the initiative to tailor the web at will. It will be an experience beyond the long lasting web 2.0...

Finally, you can run wild with these scissors.
Their MissionCollecting and organizing information is really important to us. However, it could be painful from time to time. We built Scissorsfly for you to enjoy the process.
TeamWe are an early stage startup based in Mountain View (CA) and Chicago (IL). Our team is small and close-knit, with both strong engineering (e.g. Google, Yahoo!, Linkedin, eBay) and research (e.g. security, data mining, machine learning) backgrounds.

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 | Communicate...and how! | 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"

A good list from one of the top social media experts - Heidi Cohen. I see many consultans, sales professionals, coaches, speakers, and advisors just throwing links and crap against the wall hoping some of it will stick.


Good content creation requires a thoughtful, well-defined, targeted approach that requires an investment of time vs. just sharing links with your network. This example of a curated content by Jan Gordon on Heidi's article is good illustration of how content curation should be delivered.

Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, January 18, 2013 8:39 PM

This is a really good article about content curation. There is nothing wrong with doing content curation, as it provides insight from multiple sources. As this article points out, the trick is curating content that adds value to whatever it is that you are adding the content to. In my case, it's my blog. I've followed most of these guidelines instinctively, because I want to provide quality information to share with fellow technical communicators and e-learning specialists. 

 

Read this one carefully, as it's chock full of good advice.

I selected this article from Curatti written by Karen Dikson because it provides insights on how to to avoid costly copywriting mistakes.

 

In order for your brand to attract more readers you need to provide high-quality content.

 

Common Copywriting Errors

 

Your message should draw in your audience. I agree that you can reach more people by writing more effectively in a simple, concise manner.

 

Dikson explains the common mistakes content marketers make and how to fix them.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Choose a single-column layout for better reading flow. In addition to sub-headlines make sure your paragraphs naturally move into the next one.

 

  • Before you start writing have a specific goal in place. Go beyond just clever copy and provide something that is creative and fresh.

 

  • If you're going to use a bold claim you need to back it up with facts. This builds trust with potential customers as well as a good brand reputation.

Zoekmachines - en Google - voorop gaan de context van zoektermen steeds beter begrijpen, zodat gebruikers betere en op hun situatie (plek, voorkeuren) toegespitste resultaten krijgen. Omdat het daarbij om de zogeheten 'big data' draait, is onder meer het gebruik van Google+ belangrijk voor Google. 

 

Kort gezegd gaat het betekenen dat zoekwoord 'pizza' niet leidt naar allerhande recepten websites, maar naar de Italiaan om de hoek.
