Creating new valuable content on a regular basis is critical to an SEO with high aspirations. Really hard! That’s why content curation is so popular these days amongst content marketers and SEOers. The idea of leveraging other people’s/brands content and compiling them, adding opinions to them, and adding additional information to them in such a way that it becomes valuable, interesting, and engaging to the end-user.

Here’s how you can put each one of these in action: For tweets… create a story of tweets by industry sources in your niche. Embed all these tweets in a post and release it. For videos… Do the same with videos. Find videos that are complimentary with each other. Videos that provide value and answer questions that your market has. Below each video include a 4-5 sentence explanation of why you chose the video and what’s the video about. Blog posts… I actually enjoy roundup posts, especially when they are well put together. The key here is to select the posts that are unique and your market probably wouldn’t have come across. There’s defiantly a art to selecting these posts and something that only time really can teach. Popular pins… I’m not an expert on Pinterst so I can’t be much help here but I would think the style of your curation would be the same as what you would do with Twitter or YouTube. You want to tell a story and showcase pins of tremendous value. Amazon… a hidden gem. This is actually a great strategy if your in a niche where you can recommend products on Amazon. We’ve been successful with this strategy ourselves and is something that I highly suggest you take a shot at. I suggest you try each one of these strategies at least once. See how it goes. See how it drives traffic and conversions. Also be mindful if you enjoy putting together the content. You might find that you don’t like the time it takes to put together a YouTube curation but you enjoy creating curated Amazon Lists. That’s great, do more of that just ensure your always tracking it back to results. The 3 S’s of Content Curation Can Proper Content Curation Feed Your Thought Leadership?
