Managing Collective Intelligence-If you think knowledge is power, you aren’t living in the real world. | Alt & Mob Health | Scoop.it

If you think knowledge is power, you aren’t living in the real world.

 

Knowledge changes so fast that if you try to hold onto it, you end up with nothing. To get power,it is much more effective to share knowledge and thus build the basis for a reputation.If people think you have key strategic knowledge, you will have power within theorganization.

 

Richard McDermott, President of McDermott Consulting (From "Lagestion du savoir", proceedings of the November 2003 colloquium organized byCEFRIO:http://www.cefrio.qc.ca/pdf/ActesGestionDuSavoir.pdf )

 

This quote describes a common-sense reality that unfortunately not everyone understands. But wecan implement this idea here and now, creating the basis for a collective reputation!

Curation Is The Wrong Answer When Your Problem Is To Quickly Publish Great Content

Curation Is The Wrong Answer When Your Problem Is To Quickly Publish Great Content | Alt & Mob Health | Scoop.it

Ryan Skinner nails it right on the head:

 

"...Curation is the wrong answer when the question is:

 

“How can I fill our sales funnel with cheap content, quicker than quick?”

 

And it’s the right answer when the question is:

 

“How can I give people a deeper understanding of what I know and love?”

 

...

 

Here a few gems from his six key recommendations:

 

As narrow as possible: If you’re one guy with one hour a week, you can’t curate a good newsletter about cloud technology. The less resources you have at your disposal, the narrower should be your topic, your focus and your audience.

 

More than a link: This is the era of frictionless sharing, goddammit. Friction is a demonstration of care. Anyone can send a link. If you’re going to curate and share, add something. Some insight. Commentary. But no more than necessary.

 

Slap asses: If you’re going to curate someone’s content, you owe it to yourself and to them to be open about it. Preferably, it’s someone you follow and share comments with. And be sure to give them credit.

 

Give away the reins: To whatever extent possible, allow the people you’re curating for, to influence contents in the future. The likes of Reddit have made this idea their raison d’etre. There’s a reason for that.

The Future of Retail Will be Curated: 13 Sites That Help You Discover What Other People Like

The Future of Retail Will be Curated: 13 Sites That Help You Discover What Other People Like | Alt & Mob Health | Scoop.it

From the article: "What retailers need to understand is that there is no direct path to online consumer sales.

 

Consumers desire to broadcast and share their lives, and their web behaviors therefore strike out on a non-linear path to purchase.

 

The whole concept of social commerce is now realizing that every platform and network is a potential lead for an online sale.

 

Social discovery platforms are developing cult followings because they allow users to establish their authority in a certain subject area and to showcase their ability to create inspirational collections of products, items and even destinations.

 

Simple self-expression through the curation of products should be considered every retailer’s dream.

 

As a retailer, all you have to do is supply images and ideas in a way that’s accessible to the online user/consumer and sparks their desire to do all this work for you.

 

In one swift addition to a consumer “pin, post or add,” retailers can build brand awareness, increase online engagement and create direct links to product pages that lead to purchase conversions.

 

...

 

The future of e-commerce, search, social marketing are now tied to consumers attempting to curate experiences that represent their personalities."

 

Find also in this excellent article by Macala Wright thirteen product curation sites reviewed.

 

Very good. 8/10
