3 Aspects of Content Curation Attendees at SMC Dallas’ July 17 meeting were treated to a practical presentation about the why and how of online content curation by Jerod Morris , director of content at Copyblogger.com .  He took any mystery out of the term “content curation,” boiling it down to the concept of “collecting and distilling ideas and content for yourself and audiences.”

He acknowledged that the concept of content curation isn’t new; you just have to turn to any library or museum, the Bible, early American newspaper or other repository of news and information.  More recent digital examples include Daily Digg and Fark .

Jerod also positioned the “why” of content curation as a universally themed imperative, saying that “Content curation is an essential component of leadership.  We don’t follow people who don’t have ideas.”  He cited John Adams and Thomas Jefferson as two great leaders who curated and shared compelling content through their pre-revolutionary war letters, which ultimately led to the Declaration of Independence and the founding of the United States of America.

The meat of his presentation focused on the “how” of online content curation. Four-Step Framework to Curate Three Types of Content

Jerod outlined a basic, four-step framework that he uses at Copyblogger.com to curate content:

> Read – to get ideas and lead (Jerod’s currently reading about John Adams)

Publish – so others benefit

Have a process – to be efficient

Have a purpose – to improve people’s lives

He broke the process of content curation into three areas: curating links , ideas and knowledge . He recommends putting content-sharing responsibilities in the hands of just two resources: you as official content curator for an organization’s online site or someone who’s earned the trust and has the good judgment to represent the brand effectively. Curating Linked Content

As for what linked articles are worth sharing, Jerod has a handy acronym he uses to make that call: R – I’ve R ead it (one exception: content from someone you trust) O – It’s O riginal A – It’s A pplicable (and Accurate) – solves a problem for the audience R – It’s R eputableCritical considerations include where to find and how and when to share links that pass the ROAR standards. Jerod recommends using manicured feed aggregators, social media and other content curators, such as NextDraft , Daily Digg , Farnam Street    and The [...]

Content Curation: 3 New Tools To Discover & Share Content Do you have trouble coming up with content to share on social networks?

Or, are you stuck going to the same few content sources over and over?

If so, you’re not alone.

One of the biggest challenges for companies is finding good content to share on social networks.

Many companies default to simply sharing their own content. However, you don’t want to turn into a used-car salesman who blasts their audience with non-stop promotion.

You must balance your promotional efforts by sharing other useful, informative and entertaining content.

But, where do you find it?

There are lots of resources and tools available to help you discover and curate content . Content Curation Tools

But, here are a few new players on the market that make the process of finding and sharing content even easier. 1. Hootsuite Suggested Content

Once you’re there, you’ll see the suggested content section. Select the account you wish to use and then Hootsuite will suggest three topic areas based on your previous tweets.However, you can easily change the selections to any three topics you wish.Then, you select your scheduling preferences to determine when you want the messages to post to your account.Once you’ve done this, Hootsuite pre-populates a feed of posts for you. You can then schedule posts individually or use the check boxes to schedule messages in bulk. You can also edit the messages before you schedule them.Here is what my feed looked like based on the topics of marketing, public relations and social media. Hootsuite content suggestions The good stuff: The great thing about this tool is that it’s baked into a tool that many businesses are already using, so it makes it easier for people to find and share content in one place.It’s also cool that Hootsuite learns your preferences.

3 Essential Steps to Drive Revenue & Conversions From Pinterest Smart marketers know that Pinterest is a valuable social media channel. In fact, one study found that Pinterest drives more traffic to media websites than Twitter, LinkedIn, Reddit, and Google+ combined .

The referral traffic opportunity from Pinterest is massive. But many companies are unclear about how and whether to develop a Pinterest-meets-conversion strategy. This blog post will explore ways to drive traffic to your site from Pinterest. Step 1: Really Know Your Audience

As a visually-driven platform, Pinterest has become a highly engaging tool for people to curate their favorite images. Given that the majority of engaged Pinterest users are women, businesses have a tendency to stereotype the platform as one that is valuable for food, DIY, fashion, and home decor brands only .

Yes it’s true — lifestyle brands are a perfect fit for this platform. But there is more to the story, as Pinterest users are complex. The same folks who enjoy pinning images of office fashion are also reading up on entrepreneurship and career tips.

I don’t know about you, but  ‘curation’ strikes me as a pretentious wrapper for something most are already doing: posting the highlights of our day to our networks.

But is there more to it? Short answer: yes!

For the enterprise professional, curation is about establishing authority in topical areas, while bringing fresh ideas and content to our employers (and beyond). Sound a bit more compelling? Good.

So how do we go from ‘share good stuff with our network’ to ‘semi-professional curator’? Let’s start with some definitions.

Curation is the art of:

> filtering incoming content and ideas that match our specialties and interests

tagging/organizing the best ideas and content so they don’t elude us when we need them later

sharing the best of that content on appropriate platforms (including internal networks)

One big argument for diving further into curation:

we are already doing step one, albeit with varying degrees of effectiveness, so why not establish processes for #2 and #3?

We can also take a big enterprise step by slicing out a chunk of our expertise and sharing it on a specific channel (versus simply sharing random/funny bits on Twitter or Facebook). More on that in a bit. Filtering – create your own ‘content net’ for relevance Filtering is a massive problem I have already covered . Why? because our networks are bogged down in oversharing flotsam where a few nuggets of professional gold linger, and occasionally surface, but not as often as we’d like, because popularity – the only algorithm the big social networks can fathom – is not always the best path to relevance. Tagging matters – for ideas as well as content Assuming the filtering problem is solved, we move on to the tagging and organizing part. Not all of us need this step – some just skip it entirely and move onto the sharing. But there are two reasons to reconsider this tagging step: Not everything we spot is worth sharing immediately. Some content may take on greater importance down the road, when a new project or new client emerges. Tagging is ideal for such items. With a bit of set up effort, we can easily add a tagging step to our current sharing practices. That could be an corporate social or curation tool, or perhaps a third party website.  Example: for the content I select for my enterprise newsfeed , I quickly tag it with keywords and commentary [...]

Introducing the Content Promotion Ecosystem

The content promotion industry is starting to grow up. It’s now being regularly written about by marketers and communications professionals of all stripes. Hell, we even created an entire publication dedicated to the topic. With the buzz bubbling and the posts popping, one thing is clear – there’s still a lot of confusion about content promotion channels and the tools used to effectively tap into them.

In an effort to eliminate this confusion, the Venn diagram below defines where each tool resides in the content promotion ecosystem and which channel(s) it impacts. Many tools can impact multiple channels – all of which are defined below.

Note : Email service providers and tools built mostly to create, manage and measure owned media were intentionally not included in the ecosystem, but could be.

An argument for including content curation engines can be made, too, but getting other people to curate or syndicate a brand’s content is done using the media relations tools below and establishing real relationships. Introducing the Content Promotion Ecosystem As shown above, there are a lot of different tools that make up the content promotion ecosystem. Many of them are very different from each other. However, what binds them all is their ability to help promote a brand’s content on owned, paid or earned media channels. Many of the tools can influence two or more channels. Let’s take a deeper look at the channels and the tools that impact them.

This part of the Venn diagram is composed of two similar – but different – sets of tools that empower brands to earn media coverage. The first set includes:

These tools can be best described as classified ads for the media. Journalists can upload requests to interview subject matter experts on almost any topic. Requests that require experts from a brand’s industry can lead to an interview.

An interview is great, but if the interviewee has a blog post, whitepaper, guide, ebook or study that addresses the reporter’s questions it should be shared, too. If it’s good enough, the brand’s content could be cited in the article. Citations of this nature can drive thousands of click-throughs and online conversions in a short amount of time.

The second set of content coverage tools is similar in that they help brands earn media, but how they go about it is slightly different. For example, Gorkana has [...]

Can Oktopost Catch Up To Hootsuite?

We know that there is too much information out there. It’d be impossible for even a speed reader to process everything flowing through your Twitter or Facebook feeds. Imagine trying to process all your socials. What if you were a social media manager or community manager juggling several accounts across several networks, all with divergent focuses or locations? In our struggle to keep tabs on everything, social media marketing tools are no longer just the way we automate the sharing of our message across various social networks. These social media apps have become the maestros looking to curate and direct that content into musically smooth streams.

HootSuite was the first social web marketing tool to go big in this area. More than a year ago, HootSuite introduced the concept of social listening . Through these streams you can target different topic areas, keep dibs on what your target audience is saying about your target topic and even about you. Those of us social media addicts were finally able to organize and prioritize the information we consume.

The Oktopost tool for socially driven B2B content marketing looked to achieve something similar when it released its more directly named social media monitor last month. The social streams are similarly organized but with the trendy flat design and coloring that’s maybe a little easier on the eyes than old Owly.

Oktopost’s monitor allows you to track things like keywords, mentions, groups, and companies — both you and the competition. Can Oktopost Catch Up To Hootsuite? Related Resources from B2C

Basically, a modern-day cherry picker.

“I write only when inspiration strikes. Fortunately it strikes every morning at nine o’clock sharp.” – W.

Content Curation, Content Marketing, and Facebook’s New Policies

The powers that be at Facebook like to keep us on our toes. Sometimes it feels like they change security, posting, and other features on a whim. But today there was some good news – at least for some of us.

A new update from Facebook’s elders has quelled previously whispered rumors that they would kill off all sharing from third party apps. In reality, it turns out they will actually be giving less weight to stories that are “implicitly shared.” Implicit sharing occurs when someone clicks “Share” on a story through a third-party app, without creating a unique message for the post. Essentially, the message that is posted with the story is exactly the same as the title of the link.

So what’s the good news?

Along with this change, Facebook is now giving more weight to “explicitly shared” stories from third-party platforms. Explicit sharing occurs when someone click “Share” and writes a “unique” message to go with the post. This stands to benefit social media marketers – at least those who put real effort into providing value though their social sharing.

Content marketing is undergoing a paradigm shift. It’s no longer limited to white papers, case studies, and testimonials exclusively, but now also includes “social content.” Social Content Marketing refers to the idea that the messaging in social posts is, in and of itself, content.

Related Resources from B2C Social Content Marketing Now that social messaging is being considered “content,” marketers should treat it just like any other type of contents. It’s truly amazing how much value can be created from a 140 character tweet. In today’s world of marketing, a post on Facebook can have the same impact on a prospect as a 25 page white paper. Even more importantly, engaging in discussions across the social web requires a content marketer to stay on his or her toes. Social media doesn’t sleep, and social engagements require an immediate (or very quick) response with little time to plan.

In recent months, Facebook has made real strides in cleaning up our News Feeds. For example, Facebook has recently started giving less weight to “ like baiting ” posts, as well as posts that include regurgitated images that are spammy in nature. While some marketers that are complaining about these changes, they should be glad – this will serve as a an impetus for them to change their ways.

App developers, especially mobile app developers, need [...]
