Great article! Thanks for sharing, and you've got some great points in here, specifically the "Write like a Human." I couldn't agree more. I posted a similar post earlier this summer thats complimentary to this and touches on a few additional tips Writing Content Titles: 10 Tips to Increase Your Pageviews Thanks!
Great article Matthew. I do have one point to dissagree with you slightly on one point. Using content curation - you can certianly provide your own views. The act of curating is done by a human, and if done correctly, involves notes or annotations why the content is relevant to the reading audience. A curator can easily express their views, using the curated content as support or additional evidence. Id' love to share an ebook we published called 5 Simple Steps to Becoming a Content Curation Rockstar which discusses annotation in addition to a few other points. Thanks!
Great post! This is very helpful. Twitter proves time and time again that curating content can be successful for your brand and gain the traffic you're looking for.
great article. I particularly like the ABCD strategy you've outlined as well. I'd like the highlight the importance of annotation as well. Giving context to why you've choosing the content you're sharing is key to the success of the curated content. Plus, you're adding additional benefit for your reading audience why it's important. I wanted to share an asset my company created to help you become a content curation rockstar - http://www.curata.com/resources/ebooks/5-simple-steps-to-becoming-a-content-curation-rockstar/
