Saatchi Art Collaboration Tips

Wow, if you want to see the promise of community and collaboration take a hard look at SaatchiArt.com. Where Artsy.net favors galleries SaatchiArt.com is all about artists. 

Artists create profiles and curate their "galleries". Saatchi uses algorithms and push notifications to keep potential collectors in the loop and in the know on artists they follow. 

Both SaatchiArt.com and Artsy.net are good tools with a common purpose - creating an online art marketplace. If you're an online merchant steal how easy SaatchiArt.com makes collaboration and how intelligent their pings and notices are - now that's email marketing that matters.

Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Many great "steal this" tips to be learned from SaatchiArt.com.

Are You Fighting Collaboration? | Collaborative Revolution | Scoop.it

Fighting Collaboration & Not Knowing It?
You may be fighting collaboration, the key to success in a networked world, and not know it. Look for these five signs:

1. Sharing = Less Not More Valuable

2. Mutually Exclusive Process (On & Off).

3. Toxic environment.

4. Mental and/or Emotional Blocks
5. Bridges Beat Bondo.

(From the article): Knowing that collaboration has measurable outcomes, some organizations may desire it, but systemic processes, policies and even people can become obstacles to realizing that goal and stunt longer-term success.

Lessons In Creating A Brand Ambassador Layer via @HaikuDeck

Lessons In Creating A Brand Ambassador Layer via @HaikuDeck | Collaborative Revolution | Scoop.it
Haiku Deck demonstrates elements needed for successful SaaS model.
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Haiku Deck's Lesson
Haiku Deck is a great tool. The tool puts a easy to use interface on top fo the creative commons to find images. Using the tool is free and it helps form visual marketing killing the old bullet ridden PowerPoints (thankfully).

The other lesson is how to develop a gallery that marketers fight to become part of. The power of User Generated Content (UGC). User generated content is so valuable it pays to find an engine like Haiku Deck's gallery.

Haiku Deck seeded the community at first, but it didn't take long before marketers where fighting to share decks and so display the tool's capabilities. Nothing is as powerful as user's demonstrating the power and beautiful reach of one of the best visual marketing tools on the planet :). M

Established Companies Better Get Ready for the Collaborative Economy

Established Companies Better Get Ready for the Collaborative Economy | Collaborative Revolution | Scoop.it
It's not just start-ups that need to pay attention to these four big shifts.
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Love it when HBR makes key points driving CrowdFunde (our startup) including:

* Social media is changing everything.
* One way social media marketing changes stuff is we want to collaborate more.

* Less buying more sharing.

* Less consuming more producing.
* Less working, more freelance.

* Less KNOWN more UNKNOWN (more risks).

This post also fits nicely on my Social Media Is About Being SOCIAL, Stupid Haiku Deck: http://shar.es/Tscwa

5 Common SEO Mistakes That Hurt Collaboration

5 Common SEO Mistakes That Hurt Collaboration | Collaborative Revolution | Scoop.it
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

SEO and Partnerships
Can your SEO mistakes kill a partnership? Sure if you forget or worse you remember to NOT share with your collaborators your online success will be limited and short lived. Don't make these 5 SEO Mistakes because they harm your partnerships

 

5 SEO Mistakes That Harm Partnerships
1. Rel No Follow Links back to collaborators and partners.

2. Not using canonical URLs when duping content.

3. Not using block quotes when copying content from another source.

4. Not using Google author tags (this robs them and you).

5. Not supporting your collaborators (official or otherwise) with social.

Usually you want to bottle up your PageRank, but you want Google-Juice to flow across to collaborators since it is your way of repaying their contribution. Don't bogart a joint or use rel no follow links with collaborators.

When you grab content from somewhere and bring it to your site is sure to either use canonical URLs to identify it as NOT to play with the search engine spider OR block quote it. Either will protect you from duplicate content penalties.

Be sure to use Google author tags since to not do so robs YOU and THEM. When you use the proper tag you bring THEIR author juice aboard and you help them continue to build their online content marketing reputation.

Be sure to Tweet, G+ and Facebook thanks and credit to your collaborators and don't just drive those links back to stuff you own. Be sure to spread some links OUT to them as taking actions like that make you an AUTHORITY and believe me you want that.

MoMA | Gabriel Orozco Website = Great Web Designer & Curator Collaboration

MoMA | Gabriel Orozco Website = Great Web Designer & Curator Collaboration | Collaborative Revolution | Scoop.it

Marty Note
Really Enjoyed Shannon Darrough's share of what must be a TOUGH assignment = matching the web to MoMA exhibitions. You can see the MoMA process behind the scenes page here:
http://www.moma.org/explore/inside_out/tag/web-design

Reading about the challenge of creating a website half as engaging as an artist such as Gabriel Orozco (a favorite of mine) must be a regular challenge. A challenge MoMA's excellent design team dis a great job with that you can see here:
http://www.moma.org/interactives/exhibitions/2009/gabrielorozco/

Great web design work and love the collaboration with the real life curators that do such an amazing job at MoMA.

Social Media's Real ROI? Workplace Collaboration

Social Media's Real ROI? Workplace Collaboration | Collaborative Revolution | Scoop.it

How Useful Are Social Media For Workplace Collaboration? [Infographic]

Marty

I think we will find, in the end, that social media's real enterprise returns come NOT from extranets but from the increased collaboration and efficiency we can create with intranets. When internal working groups are more connected despite time and space distances profits go up even as costs magically go down. The Enterprise is where we've hardly scratched the surface of social media.

Funny when something comes in one wrapper (B2C) we are loath to break it out of that wrapper. Who said Twitter has to be outward facing? Twitter than is inward facing is Yammer. The idea of Yammer, that we can place the random, rich interaction online is needed since we aren't all in the same place at the same time.

The virtual "water cooler" is where we will see social media's real return.

Real Time Marketing Not For The Faint Of Heart

Real Time Marketing Not For The Faint Of Heart | Collaborative Revolution | Scoop.it
Traction CEO Adam Kleinberg talks to Steve Hall about collaborative processes behind breakout real-time marketing campaigns like Oreo's Dunk in the Dark.
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Great piece here about the collaboration needed to insure real time marketing success. Love this sentence (and it says it all): 

To move at the speeds required by real-time marketing, you need fast-moving teams powered by key decision makers and you need collaboration processes firmly in place. There is no time for lengthy approval processes.

 

 

If this doesn't sound like YOU then don't worry you are not alone, but DO WORRY because that last sentence described where we are all headed (and sooner than you think).

The Hardest Lesson - Slow Progress Is Better Than NO Progress

The Hardest Lesson - Slow Progress Is Better Than NO Progress | Collaborative Revolution | Scoop.it
The Hardest Lesson
I am and so will always be impatient. My mind thinks 100 mph even if my body can't always match that these days. I saw this note and…
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

The Hardest Collaboration Lesson
Collaboration is HARD, but necessary. We can't do anything alone anymore. Everything requires a team and sometimes those teams are scattered around the world.

This post shares two lessons I learned the hard way. This means I was tied down and forced to understand (lol). First lesson was as you treat yourself is how the world treats you so Go Easy.

Second lesson is PROGRESS is anything and everything. The linked story shares the slow recovery from chemo. Slow because there was no other choice, but progress was made and I returned to the "fast lane" again. In the fast lane my selective memory erases the memory of those SLOW days.


All goals are reached because a team of people keeps battling the communication and collaboration issues required to achieve some great result. I'm working with the Atlantic BT (http://www.Atlanticbt.com) team to create Cure Cancer Starter (http://www.curecancerstarter.org) and we are making progress.

In my mind we've already cured cancer and had the party (lol).

So I raise a glass to the slow, careful progress we are and will make on our little crowdsourcing platform for cancer research and on our chance to touch the face of God when we cure cancer. That is a party I will gladly attend and stay well past my bedtime :).

Thanks too to all my Scoopit-eers without whose help I would not be here writig this or doing much of anything. You guys ROCK!
