    Tried some of these strategies for surejobz.com – works! #4 above is a good one. BufferApp and HootSuite makes life easier for me though.

    Fantastic list, Heidi! Love the visual examples and look forward to implementing a few of these. Have you ever used the WP Plugin Curation Traffic? Makes it easy to implement #6: http://curationtraffic.com/

    I just thinking…Maybe people with English as a second language can benefit from content curation and make their life easier and might autsorce less.

    Heidi, have to spend some time reading this, but the Item on Beyonce caught my attention. That is my daughter Lauren Yapalater who created that post at Buzzfeed. Even got an animee created from it from unknown Oriental company.

    This is great, Heidi! As I was reading, I thought, “How long did it take her to do this?” Man! Lots of great work.

    Thank you for this helpful article, Heidi. In your view would it be alright to end a post with a list of linked articles to suggest additional reading? The list might include the article’s name (linked), author, site name.

      I think that adding a list of related articles at the end of a blog post or other content is helpful if they’re relevant to the reader. It’s the same logic behind linking to sources and relevant articles and examples. As long as the article is referenced properly, it’s fine.

      Understand that hand selecting the articles can be time consuming and automating the process can yield less than optimal results.

      Happy marketing,

    Heidi- Great article and thanks (of course) for mentioning Who’s Blogging What. One essential requirement that I feel runs across all of the ideas that you suggest is to really get to know your audience. What media are they consuming other than yours? Do they need to know ‘what’ happened? Or do they want some background and ideas for moving forward? Also, segment your suggestions. Not everyone is interested in reading about every subject, so do some work for them and make it easy to find the articles that they really want (or need) to see. Thanks!

      Jeff– You make important points. Any content creator or curator should consider what else your reader is consuming and how. You should know who your peers are. Further content curation should provide a service to the reader by organizing the content. Happy marketing, Heidi Cohen
