Best Content Curation Platforms for Content Marketers

Best Content Curation Platforms for Content Marketers | Social Media, Design & Marketing | Scoop.it

Content curation is a great idea, but it’s really quite tedious to have to do it manually. You have to go out and find content you’d be interested in curating. Then you have to copy the link and paste it into each of your social networks. You have to schedule the post for an appropriate time, and you have to add your own spin to it, and you have to make sure it generates the right kind of preview or website card. Repeat for every link you want to share, ad nauseum, and you’re getting the idea.


Thankfully, content curation is not a new idea, or a new industry. That means there are many businesses out there who have created products to help you. These content curation tools are designed specifically to curate content as smoothly as possible across your entire social media presence. Here are the best ones I recommend....

How to put more (and better) content into content marketing

How to put more (and better) content into content marketing | Social Media, Design & Marketing | Scoop.it

Content takes courage. Marketers are all-too familiar with elongated approval processes and revision demands that can sap vitality and originality from created content, leaving only pedestrian work in their wake.

How to solve the content problem


Thus, the business community faces a challenging circumstance. Companies believe in content marketing and want to do it well. But getting there almost always means overcoming institutionalized impediments. Here are four ways to get around these problems....
