Content Curation 101: What You Need To Know
Posted by anisesmith
One of the things that Social Media peeps battle on a regular basis is content creation, which is the ideal way to extend your brand identity, expand your network and potentially created avenues of opportunity to meet clients. This is one of the reasons that content is king!
We all know that social media can be very time consuming if done properly and worse if not done properly. Either way social media can take a great portion of allocated time so there is always a quest to find ways to continue providing great content while managing time effectively. Can you say Content Curation??
Well, I LOVE Content Creation! I do not exclusively curate content, but I balance original content creation and curation which provides an abundance of information to my followers. I realized early on with social media that I could NOT provide the amount of content that I wanted to my followers because there is just not enough hours in a day. Additionally, I can only provide my perspective on any one subject. Enter Content Curation, which allows me to provide an abundance of information to those that follow me while providing different perspectives other than my own.
My absolute favorite platform used to curate content is Scoop.it. There are others but I’ve found this fits my needs so much more than the others.
