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.

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 video chat with Craig Carpenter CEO and founder of Relay on Blab

I first saw Craig on a Blab and decided to try his business graphic creation system. I was impressed and so arranged this chat

During the course of the chat we explored how Relay has grown from an idea to a full blown graphics creation package.

We talked about how Relay works , the benefits of using the system , the creation of shareable high quality business graphics using the 300 + templates

Craig’s knowledge of the industry and enthusiasm shone through and with help from enthusiastic existing users of the system we explored Relay.

Craig answered questions from participants in the #Blab and explained in full the company’s strategy , the power of the system , and how it can be used on Twitter , Facebook , Linkedin and other major online networks.

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.

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 .
