Content Curation • You do not have to source ALL of the content •Collect stories that you like from around the web and share them with your audience • This works on the blog through editorializing other people’s content • Also works on social media sites for quick, relevant status updates • Builds credibility and makes relationships with other content producersTwitter @egervase Email firstname.lastname@example.org
Guest Contributors • Through curating others’ content, you begin to grow a network of content producers that might want to contribute • Gain new audience • Adds a new voice/flavor to your content • May add a different specialty area of content that you’re not capable of producing • Ultimately “rounds out” the content that you produceTwitter @egervase Email email@example.com
Elicit stories from your audience • These tend to be the “heartfelt” stories • Really gets to the meat of why people should help you with your cause ($ and time) • Gives the person sharing their story an incentive to share with others • Informs you on the things going on within your organization • Can create a wealth of information and become a weekly/monthly topic on your blog or in your newslettersTwitter @egervase Email firstname.lastname@example.org
