  • You’re probably already doing content curation. Have you ever published a “best of” article? Do you retweet or share interesting posts? Do you pass along relevant information in e-mails or newsletters, adding your own two cents before hitting “Send”? Each of these is a nascent form of content curation. You’re selecting content, adding value, and sharing with your audience.
  • Curating content is not always faster.You have to have your tools set up to find the content, then you need to filter it personally, and be strategic about how you want to desemminate it (but we’ll get into that later).For example, I created this presentation, but in researching and creating the presentation, I curated all the content – I visited blogs to find information, I gathered images from the web, and I put it all together to make this presentation – hence why you’re probably already doing it!

    30. 30. Step 1 Define your topic Could be related to: • Sales/marketing goals • Business problems • Customer pain points One main topic, with related niche topics
    31. 31. Step 2 Know Your Audience • Who are they? • Why are they interested in your topic ? • Where do they look for content ? • What types of media do they consume ? • Where are they currently getting information ? • What do you want your niche to be ?
    32. 32. Step 3 Find your sources Sources can be varied: • Thought leaders (via blogs, RSS, Twitter feed, FB pages) • News sources (via RSS, email subscription) • Topical (via Google Alerts, StumpleUpon, Fli pboard, SmartBrief)
    33. 33. Step 4 Gather and Filter Choose your content wisely • Pick content from a variety of format types (video, images, blog posts, articles, infographics, pr esentations, etc). • Use content from platforms you (and your audience) are already on.
    34. 34. Step 5 Add Value • Why are you sharing this? • What is your opinion on the piece? • What would you like people to do with this? • How does this benefit the reader?
    35. 35. Step 6 Publish & Repurpose Publishing or sharing your curated content can be as easy as clicking “Tweet this” or as complicated as writing a summary blog post, creating a poll for your readers, or writing a follow-up blog post. Don’t forget to attribute! It builds relationships with the original authors (and you probably don’t want to be thought of as a thief!).
