5 Tools That Can Help You With Your Content Curation Efforts Imagine you’re driving to the grocery store one Saturday morning, you see a bright orange sign that reads, “Yard Sale” along the road, so you decide to stop and check it out. Once you get out and start walking around, you realize not only does this person have a lot of stuff, their stuff is thrown together all over their yard. Adult clothes are mixed in with baby toys, decorative pictures are laid out around kitchen dishes, etc. It’s a giant mess and extremely difficult to find anything that might interest you.

You leave frustrated and empty-handed. Once you finally make it to your local grocery store, you start walking up and down the aisles and breathe a sigh of relief because this is how shopping should be. Everything is organized and items are grouped categorically, making it easy to find what you need.

When content curation is done right, it’s just like walking through your orderly grocery store aisles.

Content curation is finding and selecting the most relevant and highest quality content that meets the needs of your target audience on a particular subject. The curation process involves gathering and organizing content, providing your unique insight to the content you select and sharing this information with your target audience.

So how does content curation help with your content strategy? And how does your business benefit from it?

Constantly providing great content is a challenge for most businesses and their marketing teams. Curating content supports your current content strategy. It allows you to publish content more consistently, as well as keep track of some of your favorite information sources. While it takes time and a keen eye to sift through tons of content and select the best pieces, this process is typically less time-consuming than brainstorming, creating, and editing your own content pieces.

Curated content includes Tweets or Facebook posts that link to informative, interesting content with your own insights added in before the link.

Content curation works . Over the last few years, it has surfaced as an important element of online publishing and, more specifically, content marketing. For Marketers, Content Curation not only saves money and time but adds credibility, generate leads, brand awareness and improves SEO.

Whether you’re a seasoned curator or just getting started, check out these ten tips for curating rockstar content. 1. Choose a topic that you deeply care about.

When considering this first one, it can be either a relevant topic to you personally if you’re using content curation to build a personal brand or thought leadership, or one that’s relevant to your brand. To choose your topic, think about the things your audience is probably already asking that you can answer, as well as the things you’re already reading and sharing on behalf of your brand. Don’t overthink it – the more naturally it comes to you the more naturally you’ll be able to maintain it. If you’ve chosen a topic that you love or that has meaning to your brand, content curation will be less of a burden and more of an educational activity. 2. Be specific with your topic choice.

One of the most important questions to ask yourself is, “what is my niche?” The more targeted your content curation is, the better chance you’ll have of ranking in search engines as well as establishing yourself as a leader in that area. For example, try “Content Marketing for Real Estate” rather than “Content Marketing.” 3. Build a customized home for your content to maintain your brand personality.

Curating content on social media is probably the one thing everyone already does without even being aware of it. If you’re tweeting multiple articles per day on behalf of your brand (or even yourself!), it’s probably because you think they will be of value to your followers. But, once you’ve tweeted some awesome content, it disappears into the mysterious black hole of old tweets. There is one way to avoid this, though: build a home for your curated content . There are plenty of tools out there that provide a one stop shop for content discovery, publishing, and sharing, and many of those tools also allow you to […]

Blogging Fear: My niche is saturated

Do you ever think that blogging is a tough nut to crack and that you’d like to give up because the niche you are blogging is in saturated?

Do you ever look at your computer screen and feel overwhelmed by the fact that you need to get your content out there, but you’re afraid of being lost in the noise?

Do you ever feel like quitting blogging as it’s just too much hard work for too little results? If you do, then this post is for you…

Let’s look at what saturated is, in marketing and blogging terms of course. When a market place is saturated it means that enough of the product has been supplied, the market place has absorbed as much of it as it can. Saturation: the act or result of supplying so much of something that no more is wanted. Merriam-Webster Do you think your niche can no longer take any more of what you’re offering?

Okay, let’s be honest here. I think you mean you blog in a competitive niche rather than a saturated one. Does that fit better?

Of course, it’s much easier to blame the market place for your inability to be heard because the alternative is to actually do some work , create something remarkable and be noticed because of it. Much easier to blame the market place, I know, because I have fits of despair and blame it on the niche I blog in too, and unlike some blog coaches, I actually blog in multiple niches. I have days when I look at the transport blog and feel like vomiting if I see another white van. Other days I can’t wait to share a tool or technique to add to your blogging strategy.

So let’s look at creating the type of content that’s outstanding and get’s noticed, even when it feels like we are yelling into a void. Case Studies

Case studies are awesome . My G+ webinar is based on a case study, in the webinar I break down all the things a brand has done to get traction on Google Plus so the attendees can see what works and why. When you do this you demonstrate your expertise, you know all the variables, and you show you know what you are doing. Sick of not being heard? Then create content around your case studies, these may be videos, blog posts, slideshows, hangouts, you name […]

The Secret Getting More Out of Your Content-Mind Mapping Marketers are busy and tasked with creating and curating high-quality, impactful content frequently in order to reach their target audience. This can sometimes be overwhelming, but there is a solution. In a recent Content Marketing Institute article, we discovered a great approach to organizing the content curation and creation process: use a “mind mapping” strategy. Carlijn Postma, a Dutch author, speaker, and content marketing strategist, offers up five steps that will help you keep your team organized, think ahead, and save time. Postma states:

“I sometimes get asked whether readers are overwhelmed with all this content. And I’ll admit if you look at all the different types together it can seem that way. That’s why it’s so important to create a content map to manage the process of publishing the posts carefully, both across the various channels and over time.”

One of her tips? Plot your content map so you can brainstorm, using the map as a physical manifestation.

To find out what Postma’s five steps are, read the original article at the Content Marketing Institute, 5 Steps to Mind Map Your Content and Increase Its Reach .

Exploring News Curation Through Storify

As a new user to Storify, I was unsure of what to expect at first. Without the requirement to explore news curation as part of my degree, the layout of the site could have scared me away originally, had it not been compulsory for me to carry on. However, through some basic guidance of Storify and a good deal of trial and error, I found myself able to navigate the system and produce some stories of my own.

Unlike any platform I have worked with before, I knew news curation required perhaps more thought than other platforms I’d used for journalism, such as microblogging on Twitter. The act of content curation involved me not only finding the information I needed to create a Storify, but also arranging the material to form a coherent structure to my narratives. This could be tricky at times due to the wealth of information available online that needed filtering to determine the relevance to my stories.

Nonetheless, as a result of the time I spent using Storify, I feel I have gained a deeper understanding into the many ways news can be conveyed online. It’s easy for me to turn to more conventional styles of journalism in order to find what I am looking for but, now I am aware of Storify’s existence, I will be returning to it more often.

Unlike microblogging, Storify allows the creator to present as much information as they require to communicate the story at hand. Users have near-limitless access to sources they can draw on online and, once you understand the programme, you can produce some sophisticated work.

But, like all news curation, it is important to note copyright and the inability to use some people’s work. However, in spite of this, there is such an abundance of sources freely available online it is likely you can find similar material on another site.

It is apparent that Storify is a popular curation tool. This can be recognised through statistics generated by Quantcast estimating the amount of Storify users per month in the USA. As up to date results, we can see that in the last 7 months, August saw the biggest increase in user activity. Up 13%, the platform reached an impressive 1, 697, 660 users. It is unclear why the graph shows a decrease succeeding August, but further statistics will determine the popularity of Storify. Overall, I found the biggest challenge to […]
