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.
A thoroughly enjoyable chat with Cendrine as we discussed all things social media .
Cendrine’s depth of knowledge and enthusiasm for social media shone through and we covered from a business perspective
Getting started on Social Media
Tracking and learning from your competition
Engaging your audience
Dealing with complaints
We connected over a year ago when Suzan St Maur introduced Cendrine on my Prospect Networking Facebook group

If you are on twitter you have probably heard of Klout and love it , hate it or ignore it.
Until now Klout has simply monitored your online activity and given you a Klout score based on how effective it thinks you are . There are arguments for and against how accurate the score is but Klout is well established and I use it not to monitor my score , but the trend over the months .
Now Klout has had a revamp and has extended the facilities available on the site , which may make it more useful .
Buffer has been the de facto standard for scheduling posts for release at any time of day on any day of the week . In this global village in which we live posting is now a 24 hour a day activity if you want to reach people in all continents. It is very handy if you manage more than one Twitter or Facebook account .
Enter Klout ,
Klout Scheduled Sharing
Your Klout Profile
now shows suggested content to share . You can scroll through the list and select an item by pressing the share button
The share screen is then displayed
and you can set to share on Facebook and/or Twitter (after authorising them)
When you press the schedule button , you can select date and time to share . I set this item to post on my timeline at 2pm Saturday.
You can review
all your scheduled items .
As you can see Klout is not as sophisticated as Buffer , you can only at this point in time share content they suggest
They will be providing a metrics system to show you how the Klout sourced content has been received on Twitter and Facebook . So not only are they measuring your performance ,they are helping you to create content.
The interesting thing is the way they have been able to use all those +K you have received from your friends over the years to display content which is relevant to you.
In terms of finding content relevant to your audience this is a good start . Swayy started up last year and do an excellent job in
finding fresh content for you to schedule and share with their free to use package. I wonder if Swayy and Klout might be a good fit.
Mind you both have a long way to go before they can rival Scoop.it . Scoop.it is the best and most cost effective way to gather and share content for your audience . Daily updated content from sources you choose , in topics you choose , a superb page to display it on and a development team which listens to their customers.
These are certainly interesting times in content curation and Klout’s initiative is to be welcomed.
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.
You can also embed the newspaper into your website (free of charge) and as the newspaper is updated daily so is your website.
