Creative Content Curation Tools for Social Media Managers – #infographic #contentmarketing According to an infographic by Vertical Response, 43 percent of small businesses spend six or more hours a week on social media. The study also discovered one-third of CEOs, owners and proprietors want to spend less time focusing on it. If you’re a business owner who feels swamped by the demands of social media, there are simple tools to help streamline the curation process and share it with your team.

Here’s a list of where to start and how to keep social media from taking over your life. Content Curation Simplified: An #Infographic – #contentmarketing infographic courtesy of:  thetechcult.

Here are some of our favorite content curation tools: Feedly

Over 15 million readers are already using Feedly . Why aren’t you? This news aggregator application compiles news feeds from a variety of online sources and can be easily customized for readers. Choose from topics relevant to your daily routine like marketing, SEO, business and design and explore the lastest trending topics, in once place. Feedly provides a better way to organize, read and share content from your favorite websites. Feedly is available on iOS, Android and Kindle. Bundlr

Instantly bookmark or clip any online page and sort them into a theme to then share online with Bundlr . Start bundling together curated content like photos of exotic flowers or tweets from CEOs of Fortune 500 companies. Your bundles are saved online, but can sync up with systems like Dropbox to save an offline copy of your clips. Share your curated content on Twitter, Tumblr, Google Plus and others to make them public and attract a following back to your brand, product or service. You can also export your clips and bundles before a marketing meeting or to carry a hard copy for reference. Dropbox

Dropbox serves as a cloud-based storage system to quickly store photos, documents, videos and other content in one place. Keeping all of your content in the cloud cuts down on the need for USB sticks, emailing large files and texting links back and forth to grab a photo from a website. Once your content is uploaded to Dropbox, share a link with team members to a folder or individual files. Your coworkers can download what they need and upload their own content on the go. Use Top 10 Cloud Storage to find the best rated [...]

The new Flipboard home screen (left) and topics picker (right). Flipboard is the archetype for digital media consumption, packaging stories from thousands of sources into a personalized magazine you flip through with a finger. And though it may have been the original iPad magazine, these days 70 percent of its users are flipping through its smartphone app. That, and the company’s recent acquisition of Zite, meant it was long past time for an upgrade to Flipboard’s mobile experience.

Flipboard 3.0 has expanded beyond iOS to Android and Windows Phone smartphones and tablets. It’s also changed from a passive consumption experience to one that lets you curate your own personal collections. Today’s update makes the smartphone app more navigation friendly, adding a daily digest, and opening straight into the content you’re interested in reading. The result is an app that provides more opportunity for exploring topics you love, is easier to navigate, and still packages articles in a beautiful way.

Previously, the app opened with a tiled interface of your Cover Stories and broad categories of interest, with things like search, discovery, and account settings hidden behind a button in the upper right. Now, on iOS, the app home screen features the familiar five buttons across the bottom like we see in, say, Instagram. The Android version positions them across the top of the screen. This makes it easier to navigate to your personal feed, a list of subjects to explore, search, notifications, and your profile. And by ditching the tiled interface, you’re one click closer to reading a story upon opening the app.

As for content, Flipboard previously relied on a mix of pieces shared on your social media channels and items curated by Flipboard. Now the app adds Zite’s machine learning and topic extraction engine so readers can explore new content based on niche subject areas. Rather than a high-level topic like cycling, for example, you can get updated articles on narrower topics like road racing or cyclocross. The content in these topics is fueled by a blend of algorithmic and human curation.

Flipboard’s mobile experience also includes a new element called Daily Edition, a curated summary of the day’s biggest headlines that arrives at 7 am local time. Flipboard’s not the first to do this (Yahoo has an attractive option called Yahoo News Digest), but it makes the app a more complete singular source for both important news you should read [...]

Going Horizontal With Content Curation

Going Horizontal With Content Curation There’s many different parts to being a top notch curator. First and foremost you’re finding high quality content to share, cite, and promote. Usually this content comes from topics that fit right in the groove of your target market. That type of content curation is the staple of most of the curation  you will do.

But there’s another way. A advanced strategy that you should be employing in your content curation marketing that takes it to the next level. Enter Horizontal Content Curation…

Horizontal content curation is where you take related subjects (sometimes well outside of your niche or market) and relate them to your audience.

For instance, if you talk about marketing you could curate stories around story-telling. Or if you talk about branding maybe curate a story about how a celebrity is using their personal brand.

Going horizontal allows you to broaden your sources. With digital content curation the more sources you pull from the more valuable you become.

As with most curation you do, what you curate isn’t the important part. It’s your commentary, your insight, and how you relate it to your audience that matters.

So next time you’ve set out to curate think about how you can go horizontal with your content and find sources or stories your audience might not have discovered.

The new Flipboard home screen (left) and topics picker (right). Flipboard may have been the original iPad magazine, but now, 70 percent of the company’s readers are flipping through its smartphone app. Between that and the recent acquisition of former competitor, Zite, it was clearly time for Flipboard version 3.0.

The app has expanded from an iPad-only offering to one available on Android and Windows Phone smartphones and tablets. It’s also changed from a passive consumption experience to one that lets you curate your own personal collections.
