Thought Leadership: Stand Above The Industry Crowd

rise-above-the-crowd

 

Positioning a business as a thought leader in its niche sector has become increasingly important as the era of online content and social media marketing has evolved.

As the number of channels through which an organisation can communicate to both its peers and its customers has increased, so the competitive environment has heated up, as businesses clamber over each other for recognition in their field.

Using these advances in technology in a clever and effective manner can enable a business to seize a hugely important competitive edge.

Content curation, done well and as part of a company’s overall content ecosystem, plays a vitally important role in helping a business to position itself at the very centre of it’s community, becoming the ‘industry editor’ and bringing enormous benefits with it.

Tina Dzurisin, in her blog post for the Business 2 Community site from earlier this year, entitled “The Value of Content Curation: Thought Leadership”, shared 3 main ‘basic’ pieces of advice that brands who are new to this fantastic marketing tactic, should keep in mind when curating content: Relevance, Insightfulness and Shareability.

What Is Content Curation?

download

Content curation is the process of carefully identifying, sorting through and selecting from the vast amounts of content on the web around a specific topic and sharing it with your audience in a way that is both helpful and insightful. The content curated can be any type of content found online, whether it be news feeds, blog posts, podcasts, videos, infographics or the latest social media posts.

What is key to effective content curation is the ‘human’ element – that an expert in the subject matter is the person researching and then collating the best quality content, before putting it into context and then publishing it, ensuring both its authenticity and relevancy for the particular audience it is being aimed at.

Curating content is one of the fastest, most effective and least time-consuming ways to ‘create’ new content and publish dynamic, relevant news. However, it is important that it is not the only content that a business or organisation publishes. Content curation needs to be balanced with unique content creation. Together they form a very powerful content ecosystem which can bring multiple benefits to the marketer.
