Curated Content – how to find it

With MyCurator, you can curate content from any source. But what are the best sources? This simple article gives you a simple process to find great sources of content.

What is the right content? The Right Curated Content is content that is for the same target audience. So if you are targeting financial professionals, you want to find other material that is relevant for that audience. However, you do not wish to share content that is precisely in your field. You are the expert after all. You want to find content that is close to your area but not exactly.

RSS Systems: Your Own Business Intelligence System!

This article is by Ian Campbell at Business Transition Simplified.  Ian has been a long time customer of MyCurator.  He writes here about the importance of setting up an RSS system to provide a daily stream of articles about your industry, competition and economy.

  3. ongoing business consolidation in your own industry(ies) and industries populated by suppliers to your business and its customers.
  4. the world and country-specific economies, central bank policies, government fiscal policies, regulatory policies, and government debt, and the financial markets.

Curate Content that Inserts You Into the Conversation

This Post from Marissa Burdett on Hootsuite provides a new angle on how to think about curation.  I like her focus on inserting yourself into conversations rather than just posting content.

MyCurator is a great tool for finding and posting content, but how you approach your curation is key to its success.  Read her articles for some fresh ideas.  Do you think it helps your curation process?

To make a stronger impact, think of curation differently: it is not a replacement for interaction, but rather a tool to spark conversations. #HootChat regular, Martin Lieberman, puts it this way:

If all you do is push content, all you’re going to get is retweets. If you engage, you’ll get a whole lot more replies. Which do YOU want?

Thinking about curation as an active process inserts your brand into the equation. It’s okay to use tools to automate the process so long as you are involved before and after content is shared. Remember, good curation doesn’t end with a shared link—take it one step further and engage.
