Repurpose.io with Hani Mourra – automatically transfer your Facebook videos to Youtube & Soundcloud

Share

This was Hani Mourra and Steven Healey talking about Repurpose.io

In a lively session Hani answered questions on how you can automatically transfer your Facebook videos to Youtube , Soundcloud, Dropbox and Google Drive.

I have been using the software for 5 weeks and as I do 6 to 8 videos per week it saves me time and improves my own workflow.

You have created awesome content on Facebook using video. I have too 🙂

Does the story stop there or can you take the video and show it to a wider audience.

I have downloaded them and then uploaded them to Youtube and it is a laborious, time consuming task.

What if there was an application that could do this and more ?

Since I have started using ‘Repurpose’ I have been blown away by how powerful the system is. ‘Repurpose’ gives our live videos a second life as we can use them to reach an even wider audience.

Since the moment I started using it I have saved hours each and every week.

Martin W Smith chats about Content Curation with Cendrine and Steven

Share

In an enthralling enjoyable conversation with Cendrine and me , Marty Smith gave an extensive overview of Content Curation

Marty covered best practice in Content creation and took us through the platforms .

Marty believes in building community and conversation using content and the power of story telling.

After our amazing chat with Kelly Hungerford in March , Cendrine and I are now looking forward to chatting with Martin W Smith of Curigami . Curagami works with e-commerce clients to develop creative apps to engage, involve and thrill customers.

 

Tuesday 26th April at 8:00 pm

 

WHAT BENEFITS HAS CURATION BROUGHT YOU?

Beyond the numbers, content curation creates connection and learning. I’ve learned more from Ana Cristina Pratas, Brian Yanish, Jan Gordon, Cendrine, Kelly Hungerford, Karen Dietz, Malek and others than attending expensive conferences, reading preaching white papers or listening to self-serving podcasts.

Being a member of the “curator community” is one of the biggest perks.

Curation is more of a journey than a destination for me. I read something every day I want to STOP THE WORLD and share (lol). I’m honestly all in all the time and that stance is important and why my tribe grows.

Empire Avenue is after all a social stockmarket where members invest in each other.

NOTE

In the first 7 days of running your account there are limits to the number of shares people can buy in you ranging from 200 to 400 depending on how they are operating their account.

When the 7 days are up everyone can buy more shares in you , up to 2800 .

So you need to be active in the first week to encourage people to buy and invest further.

Be aware that people can buy and SELL your shares at any time . That said if you create an active presence few people will sell.

Content Curation For Everyone – Support Your Friends

Share

In the previous blog post I suggested you could use Scoop.it to discover content that is of interest to you (and your friends) which you can then publish using Twitter and Facebook.

The next step is to curate and promote your friends and contacts by promoting the content they post daily on their blogs and on Twitter.

The reason for doing this is two fold .. it helps your friends , it helps your online visibility and it builds up  a hopefully mutual supportive group of people. Even if they do not promote you straight away when they see one of your posts that interests them they are more likely to share.

There is but one problem , in normal circumstances you see your contacts’ posts only when you are online . The odds are you see less than 20% of everything they do . So how are you going to promote them , you may not see their best content when you are online.

The answer is simple and easy to do ..

1 Create a Twitter List of the contacts whose work you are going to promote .

There is no need to include everyone , start with around 20 of your more active contacts and add to the list gradually..

2 Visit Paper.li and create a free account , start a newspaper and add the new twitter list as a source.

3  Paper.li creates a daily newspaper from the tweets (which contain links) made by your contacts about topics of interest to them

Simply read this newspaper and you will find items posted by your contacts and you can share them from within the paper.

Excerpt

You can also embed the newspaper into your website (free of charge)  and as the newspaper is updated daily  so is your website.

This is how I created the Prospect Networking Daily and embedded it into my website .
