How To Create An Idea Dashboard To Track Your Favorite Content Ideas

How To Create An Idea Dashboard To Track Your Favorite Content Ideas | Curation | Scoop.it
Content marketing productivity takes more than creating great content. Here's how to track your favorite content ideas on an idea dashboard.

Content productivity or Curating Content involves tracking and applying the good ideas you find in the blog posts you read each week.

These contain a staggering amount of information and good ideas.

A lot of information to absorb and catalog for future reference.

 

When you add ideas you find across the web, social communities and other media, your information management tasks can quickly become overwhelming.

Roger Parker has come up with this solution to track the consuming tsunami of valuable ideas, strategies, and tips.

An easy way to increase comprehension of individual posts plus a way to quickly and easily relocate important posts in the future.

 

Roger C. Parker's idea dashboard helps  you monitor ideas worthy of further study and should satisfy the following criteria:

Relevance:  Your idea dashboard doesn’t need to list every blog post, just those you’re most likely to want to revisit.Brevity:  Enough information to summarize the post and its key ideas, providing a reason for you to click the link back to the original post.Ease of use:  Easy to update. Ideally, you should be able to add references to new posts in under 10 minutes.It includes a visual component. Must be “scannable;” i.e., able to select relevant posts at a glance.Search-ability: easily search, or filter, your dashboard to locate the information you’re looking for as quickly as possible.Flexibility:  Must be easy to rearrange your dashboard to reflect your changing interests or priorities.

 

With these criteria in mind, there are three steps involved in setting up and maintaining your idea dashboard.

Step 1: Choose your key categories

Selectivity is the key to success: Selectivity involves self-curation — identifying topics that are most relevant to you.

Step 2: Choose the right format - Your two primary options are spreadsheets (like Excel, or Google Docs) and mind maps.

Step 3: Update daily - Part of your daily ritual. Consistency is extremely important

The Internet Is Full

The Internet Is Full | Curation | Scoop.it

We’ve all been talking a lot about how messy the web has become in recent years. And it’s only getting messier.

So much so that simple words will not suffice to describe just how much content is created and uploaded to the internet every minute of the day.

 

This Infographic was created to depict how “full” the internet is.

 

While it’s technically impossible for the web to fill up, it is very clear that web surfers are well past our limits of time and patience it takes to find the best information on the topics that interest us.

 

With a desperate search for tools to help us gather and consume only the best information on any topic, nothing has presented itself as an ideal solution. Except for one thing: the human curated information hub. Looking at the graphic, it becomes clear very quickly why it is impossible for a single algorithm-driven source, such as a search engine, to supply us with everything that is relevant (and of high quality) on a certain topic without all the noise that comes with it.

 

It is also a great way to demonstrate just how important human curated content has become.

 

Curation is truly a valuable service to web surfers who have neither the time nor the patience to sift through mountains of links and data to find what they’re looking for and make sense of it.

Impresionantes datos que hacen pensar... al final, la curación de contenidos, el filtro humano de las noticias y la información, es lo que se impone en una red inabarcable... mmmm asi que la jerarquizacion de noticias e info es lo que de pronto hemos descubierto??? Estoy completamente de acuerdo, sólo que en eso, selección de información e interpretación, enriquecimiento o análisis- consiste básicamente el Periodismo desde hace unos cuantos siglos!!!

Drucker’s Knowledge Worker in the Age of Social Media: Content Curation for Professional Development

Drucker’s Knowledge Worker in the Age of Social Media: Content Curation for Professional Development | Curation | Scoop.it

"Over half a century ago, management guru Peter Drucker presented the concept of the knowledge worker. Compared to the manual laborer, the knowledge worker focused on quality over quantity and worked more independently as problem solvers."

 

Over the many applications of Social Content Curation, Professional Development has been a strong trend. We keep observing it on Scoop.it but it's also been reported by Social Media influencers.

 

As more and more of us become Knowledge Worker, it should be no suprise that Content takes a growing importance on our Professional lives. So here's our take on it and why we announced this new integration with LinkedIn earlier today.

How the bubble of Content Creation increases the value of Content Curation

How the bubble of Content Creation increases the value of Content Curation | Curation | Scoop.it

"My 2013 prediction warned of the continued fall in the value of online content which would lead to the production of ever more content as media companies tried to maintain ad revenues.

You can think of it as a towering tsunami of content, or as a massive bubble of content inflation.

Just as inflation devalues currencies, content inflation is devaluing content."

I think I do but I'm not sure of the connexion you make with content inflation/dilution?
Tagmotion's comment, March 3, 2013 10:59 PM
If we look at content inflation through the lens of making money, it's clear that in terms of monetization through advertising, the internet is the first medium in history where ad inventory grows exponentially every year. Broadcasters are only making real money from iconic TV programs that attract big audiences on the web, for which advertisers will pay a premium to reach. Curating iconic programs - so that relevant segments show up as search results - turns content inflation on its head. Now you have content that's tagged, curated & discoverable at a granular level. And that specificity translates to more highly-targeted advertising which, of course, commands a premium.

Marco Bertolini's curator insight, June 22, 2013 4:10 AM

Elias Morling estime que les curateurs sont comme les "dumpster divers", ces militants qui fouillent les poubelles.  Et ils les appelle les "vrais influenceurs" car :

 

1. Les curateurs représentent un nouveau type de leadership tribal bottom up et peer-to-peer.

 

2. En tant que membres d'une tribu, les curateurs seront toujours plus "natives" que n'importe qui parlant de l'extérieur.

 

3. Au sein de la tribu, ils sont appréciés non seulement pour leurs compétences, mais aussi parce qu'ils entretiennent et développent leur propre culture.

Ness Crouch's curator insight, June 22, 2013 5:05 PM

Excellent article and video. Looking at the wonderful world of the internet and curation. The idea of curation of online content has become more and more inportant with the exponential growth of content on the world wide web. Being able to organise and manage all of the content is important.

 

Curation is about making good choices about what you share and putting it into a context for themselves and others. Being enthusiastic and thoughtful about what you choose is a way of showing what you are finding and sharing is signficant and worthwhile. 

 

Finding the most interesting and valuable things and sharing that is the key. What you want and what you are interested in is important but you also need to consider your audience.

The Massive Guide To Getting Massive Traffic

The Massive Guide To Getting Massive Traffic | Curation | Scoop.it

Growing a blog takes time. It takes consistent sharing of great content for months and months on end. Usually it takes most people about two years to get big.

This means that your growth is slow and steady as your traffic coming to your site is slow and steady. While that strategy will work…it’s always nice to get a huge jump in traffic every once in awhile.

Apply the following online marketing guidelines:

Write ultimate guides

Get covered in big media, without spending a dime

Suck in traffic with egobait [offer a reward]

Create a stampede of visitors with StumbleUpon Paid Discovery

Going viral on Tumblr to drive traffic

Timing your Reddit submissions and buying traffic

Leverage Pinterest like a power user

Write a high-quality guest post

How even an average Infographic can get you 10,000 impressions

 

These tactics that can drive traffic to your site because they are tactics that anybody can use…and they work!

Content Curation Reduces Information Overload

Content Curation Reduces Information Overload | Curation | Scoop.it

Over 100,000 new WordPress blogs are created every day, there’s 40 hours worth of video uploaded to YouTube every minute and there are 5,340 new websites created every hour.

 

“Content Curation” is providing the answer!

Find a good curator of a subject and follow their activity.

You can trust them and rely on them to find the good stuff online, saving you time and effort.

 

It can also provide a way of reducing information overload amongst your potential customers, thereby giving them a reason to stay loyal to you and make it more likely they will buy from you.

 

Equally, if you curate content in specialist areas relating to your customer needs, you will gain reputation, visitors, followers – all the things you need to ensure your online presence is high.

#1. You can add your content to your own blog

#2. Set up a new blog just for curated content or

#3. Add the material to a curation service

 

Whichever system you choose, the mere fact that you are curating content will help your business because in the explosion of information which is happening right now, people are looking for clarity.

 

The people who provide that will be the winners.

You can make your mark by being a content curator.

Humanrithm: why data without people is not enough - and how algorithms lost the Content Curation battle

These are the slides of my talk at DataWeek 2012.

 

This is what is it was about: "We engineers love data and algorithms. They help create amazing things. But if and when we forget that people create data and that data can be improved by people, we will miss the promise of Big Data. It's time we all thought of this not as social vs algorithm but as Humanrithm."

 

And I also took the example of Content Curation as a case study.

Robin Good: If you are looking for ways to expand your horizon of content sources that you can use to find valuable content for your curated news channel, Pawan Deshpande, founder and CEO of Curata, has done an excellent job of listing and describing the many alternatives available to you.

 

While many beginner curators rely on their set of RSS feeds and on simple web searches to find new and interesting stuff on their topic of interest, there are a dozen more content source types that can be tapped to find relevant stuff. This article helps you start learning where to look to find them.

MyCurator :: Powerful Software Packaged As A Wordpress Plugin

MyCurator :: Powerful Software Packaged As A Wordpress Plugin | Curation | Scoop.it

Overview of the MyCurator Plugin

With MyCurator reading your feeds and finding good articles for you, just click Make Live on any of them and you go to the WordPress post editor with the full text of the article and all of its images in a meta box ready for you to use.  You can grab quotes, paste in images and write your insights and comments.  The link to the original article is already inserted into the post for proper attribution.  When you are ready, click Publish and you are done!

 

With MyCurator, you can find an amazing range and breadth of articles. The reason is that while a very broad google alert would yield way too many articles for you to read yourself, MyCurator can plow through them, finding the article types you’ve trained it for. In this blog post we’ll outline a few key steps to use MyCurator as a broad content discovery search engine.

 

Create a broad Google alert, like WordPress review or content curation or for a business, maybe something like  mobile payment.  Just a couple of keywords, no phrases.  You might use OR such as WordPress theme OR plugin.Add the new alert to the sources for your topic (using the Add New Link page).  You might also add some very general blogs and news feeds to the source too.When you create the topic, leave the Topic Search 1 field blank if you just have Google alerts as your source.  If you also have blogs or news feeds, you could add the same keywords that you used in the Google alert.Add as many Topic Search 2 keywords and phrases as you can think of.  The more the better, as it will filter out fewer articles.  Also make sure to check the Use Search 2 Keywords as Tags box, providing a rich set of tags for your articles.  An alternative is to leave this field blank too, which will not filter out any articles.  Unfortunately, you won’t have any tags on your articles if you take this approach.Once MyCurator starts returning articles, train as many as you can as either good or bad on the Training page you have set up.

Why Content Curation and Crowdsourcing Will Change Everything

Why Content Curation and Crowdsourcing Will Change Everything | Curation | Scoop.it

From the original article by Tom George on his "Internet Billboards".
Here are some interesting excerpts from the post about content curation.
"After having spent the better part of four years curating content from renowned bloggers, journalists and authors as well as building a platform here on Internet Billboards, which has evolved into a wonderful community of content curator’s.

Here is my definition of content curation. A content curator is someone who finds, organizes, presents and shares valuable information (content) in many forms, on a specific topic, in a way that provides special context and or a unique engagement with his or her readers. In actuality when done correctly, over time it positions the curator as an expert in his or her respective field and defines their reputation as a thought leader.

A good curator will mix curation with his or her own original content, to give interpretations for the express purpose of allowing others to form their own conclusions.
...
Why curation and crowdsourcing will and should become more important to you. I will give you ten reasons.
1. There is just too much content;
2. Social Sites Are Full Of Spam;
3. Privacy concerns with big data;
4. Limiting risk and using many minds;
5. Technology must assist us and help us not hinder us;
6. People Will recognize the need to build meaningful relationships;
7. Information will flow freely;
8. Trust and authority will be the new currency;
9. Curation helps you establish relationships with thought leaders;
10. Crowd Sourcing can make things possible..."
