The Modern Marketing Triangle: 3 Keys to Success [infographic]

The Modern Marketing Triangle: 3 Keys to Success [infographic] | Curation4u | Scoop.it

Many traditional marketing models now seem ancient and obsolete. New strategic models are needed – not just for text books and academics but for managers. Businesses need practical templates on which to build the next generation of actionable marketing strategies – with a mix of tactics that work online.

 

Offline is still important – but the web is now your most important business battleground. If you lose the online battle then you lose the business war. Traditional business models no longer work and established businesses need to re-arrange their strategies – and in some cases their organisational structures – in order to compete effectively using the web. It’s a reminder that you need to embrace change as the only source of real progress.

 

This simple infographic may help you focus your new strategy on the three corners of the modern marketing triangle:

Super-fast Content Curation: Add Scoop.it to HootSuite and Go! | Curation4u | Scoop.it

"Did you know you can now integrate two of the best apps to help you find and share content daily?" writes Liz Wilson on Business2Community.com. 


I love the way she describes her Scoop.it community: "It’s a place where you find the leading experts. You will learn from them, benefit from their high-level curation, and connect with them. Some of them will become friends. After a bit more than a year, I have an incredible knowledge network of friendly, helpful people in my Scoop.it community."


And also how the Scoop.it App enhances her HootSuite experience: "Until the Scoop.it app came along I hadn’t found a satisfactory way to quickly uncover great content from inside HootSuite. I wanted a quick and easy way to do more of my work from inside Hoot Suite – and this is it."

Blending Creation and Curation in a Perfectly Balanced Content Diet | Free eBook by Curata

Blending Creation and Curation in a Perfectly Balanced Content Diet | Free eBook by Curata | Curation4u | Scoop.it

In this free ebook by Curata (made up of 33 pages), with foreword by Ann Handley, Chief Content Officer of MarketingProfs and the co-author of "Content Rules", it will show you how to mix original content and curated content to get results.


In this ebook you’ll learn:

- How to re-purpose old content;

- Front-end marketing tactics;

- How to develop short and long form content;

- and how to keep your Content Beast well fed!


Here is a short excerpt as summary that caught my attention:

"6 tips for smart and effective content curation:

1) Be strategic about your topic selection. Do the legwork to determine audience needs. Think about the voice you want for your brand. Build your content around that.
2) Vary your sources. Exposure to a broad variety of voices, ideas, and information is one of the key values of a strong curation strategy.

3) Be selective. Curation is not about sharing as much as you can. It’s about sharing the best of the best – acting as a filter for your audience.

4) Organize based on audience needs. Make sure that you present your curated content using categorization and hierarchy that’s as useful to your audience as it is to you.

5) Adhere to ethical best practices. Always attribute your original sources and only publish abstracts and excerpts.

6) Add value. Help your audience get the most out of your curated content by providing insights, opinions, and context."


Very informative.

The Gamification Of Business | Forrester Blogs

The Gamification Of Business | Forrester Blogs | Curation4u | Scoop.it

Great article inasmuch as it points out the potential that gamification offers to the B2B marketer. We believe that B2B gamification can significantly supplement and compliment your content marketing strategy, which of course is the fuel to the marketing automation process. You can easily see how gamification could be the sole sources of content for marketing automation. No hard direction from this article, but rather wondering outloud, as you can read from this excerpt...

 

Many companies profess to be thought-leaders in their industry - especially in BtoB - yet few are good at engaging employees to use social tools like blogs to demonstrate this thought leadership in an engaging kind of way (IBM being an obvious exception). How might we use game theory to help employees see blogging as a game? Maybe something as simple as posting a company league table of KLOUT scores on the intranet would begin to change behavioural dynamics. Would this cause the leading thinkers in our organizations to challenge themselves to raise their Klout score? How can we create a game-like challenge so employees can solve it, just as gamers solve obstacles put in front of them in games?

Content Curation your secret weapon - Drive Traffic & Find New Customers

Content Curation your secret weapon - Drive Traffic & Find New Customers | Curation4u | Scoop.it
Using Content Curation To Find New Customers.


Being an Internet marketer for many years I’ve seen the landscape change many times but one thing has stayed the same “Content is King”, when it comes to driving traffic to a website.


As a business owner we all want to get new customers to our websites. Many have tried blogging to drive traffic to their website and due to a shortage of hours in a day they end up dropping the blog or hiring ghost writers to develop content for the site. We now have a new player on the net and it comes in the form of Content Curation. No it will not completely eliminate business owners creating content for their website but adds a whole new area of content development for a website.


Over the past two years I’ve tested different content curation sites and tools and have found Scoop.it to be the leader in both innovation and traffic building potential.


Below are examples on how Scoop.it can drive traffic and help to show the world, yes the world that your business knows your market.


In this article are 3 areas that when done correctly can drive new traffic to your business or brand.

New Facebook “Want/Collect” Buttons May Create Social Wish Listing

New Facebook “Want/Collect” Buttons May Create Social Wish Listing | Curation4u | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article on TechCrunch:

"Facebook has just begun testing “Collections” — a new feature it says is “unrelated” to Pinterest but could be a competitor. It allows retailers to add “Want” or “Collect” buttons to news feed posts about products. These save and share products to a “Wishlist” on user profiles that host a “Buy” button that can be clicked through to make purchases offsite.

Seven retail partners can now share Collections posts to their fans.

 

Collections could help retailers score viral click-throughs to their product pages by making things their fans are interested in more discoverable to friends. Facebook isn’t earning affiliate fees on Collections click throughs, but it could get brands to buy ads to get more fans.

 

The “Want” button adds a product to a Timeline section called “Wishlist” visible to friends of friends, the “Collect” button saves to to a Collection called “Products” that’s visible to friends only, and a special version of the “Like” button will also add to “Products” but that’s visible to friends of friends.

 

The “Want” button adds a product to a Timeline section called “Wishlist” visible to friends of friends, the “Collect” button saves to to a Collection called “Products” that’s visible to friends only, and a special version of the “Like” button will also add to “Products” but that’s visible to friends of friends..."

 

Sorry. I still don't get the huge buzz around posting pictures. I do get that it is attractive to marketers, primarily because it finally looks like a usage of social media that resembles advertising. But if Facebook is interested, then I guess I need to be . . .

 

Marty Note
I like the Facebook-izaiton of the wish list and see it as a natural extension of the world's largest social net. The problem with the wish list concept was it took too much work for too little potential benefit. You had to hope that people you wanted to see the list were on the site you created it.

Social Wish Listing is different and larger. Facebook's move could change the wish list from a, "I want these things," to "I identify with these things," and that is a powerful idea. If Facebook is successful the Want/Collect idea becomes a badge making it easy to tribe up around "like me" stuff.

The wish list was always under utilized by e-commerce merchants. I didn't understand them well until a talented team running a sister company's site created a contest around "Win Your Wish List". Brilliant idea and it helped me see the lowly wish list (or want/collect) as the beginning of a robust conversation. If Facebook is even half successful at creating scale social wish listing it could prove to be cool.
