Curation Tips , , ,

We never thought we would curate something from About.com but this article was full of really good information on curation. It specifically covers a high level overview of the strategy of content curaiton. Here’s what we suggest you do with the 5 tips below. Take each one and put it into a content calendar.

So one maybe on Friday you curate videos. Tuesday you curate a slideshow. The next Tuesday you post a round-up post. That Thursday maybe you post a short form curation like we are doing right here. It’s that simple to add content curation to your marketing…

Content curation is a popular trick used by bloggers and online publishers to increase the amount of content they publish, share great content from across the web with their own audiences, and add personal commentary to hot topics discussed on other websites. You can curate content that you think your audience would find value in, add your own commentary, and publish it on your blog. As long as you don’t plagiarize, break any laws, publish duplicate content, or fail to attribute the source with a backlink to the original content, then content curation is a viable way to bring interesting content to your audience and increase your blog post publishing schedule.

  1. Publish Editorialized Content that You’ve Curated
  2. Publish Curated Round-up Blog Posts
  3. Publish Slideshows to Highlight Curated Content from Multiple Sources
  4. Embed Curated Content on Your Blog
  5. Curate Content into an Online Video
