titled, “Epic Content Marketing“, weaves a great story on the topic, and can help you create a winning content marketing strategy.

Many companies are totally revitalizing their brands through unleashing killer content marketing strategies, but like a professional athlete, if you want to develop that killer content instinct and intuition you need to train, implement, and measure your result’s.

Content curation is a potent weapon to master and use. Jennifer Hanford an Internet Billboards curator curated a post titled Some Key Ways For Brands To Use Content Curation, where Joe is quoted as saying: “Your job, like that of a museum curator, is to unearth the best content on the planet in your niche, so that your museum doesn’t close down for a lack of visitors”.

Many companies are allocating more time and resources to developing a great plan for content curation, in recent surveys, companies say the biggest road block they face is coming up with enough content which contains enough value to be effective.

This is also why more and more content marketing agencies are popping up, but the good ones are hard to come by. Another curator Rachel Parker the founder of Resonance Content, was actually able to interview Joe on her ground breaking content marketing podcast. Another great post is 11 Content Marketing Lessons: 20 Top Blogs Reveal What They Learned.

This is why a good rule of thumb is an 80 to 20 ratio. Another words, have 80% percent of your content be original, and 20% percent curated. This post would be an example. It’s a collection of my ideas, listing some great other ideas from some other people, who are experts, so they certainly know what they are talking about. It’s curated content in action.


Here are what a few other experts have to say on the subject of content marketing.

Influencers have spent a lot of time and money building a reputation with their audience.

It’s exciting to see such a huge brand embracing the power of content marketing, especially to sort out its woes and build up a social buzz.But for the strategy to be truly effective these pieces of content need effective calls to action to generate leads and push sales of the products the editorial team is writing about.


The 6 Lifelong Laws of Content Marketing for Agencies

Speaking from two decades of personal experience, and currently advising 10 agencies, I can state unequivocally that the agency life is not a 9-5 gig. Hours spent working at an agency can ebb and flow like Oprah’s dress size, and work weeks of 50-60 hours or more are not uncommon. But, even within the “whatever it takes” atmosphere that is forever attached to the agency business like a barnacle, you can only push people for so hard, for so long.

    I agree with 99%. The 1%: that curated articles *need* to have calls to action. Do you agree that if ALL your curated articles contain advertisements for your product, then your audience will see through this and not follow you.

    • Tom George

      Hi Michael,
      Thank you for commenting. I just want to be clear on what you have said. Do you mean advertisement’s on our site? If so I would certainly take your suggestion under advisement. Within the posts we have only one Google ad running, but you may have a really helpful point. Looking forward to your clarification on this matter.

      • Michael

        I wasn’t referring to ads on your site. That’s fine. I’ve got ads on my site. We all want to get people on our sites and curation is a great way. I do it. But I was thinking of cases where I’m pulled to a site because it looks like there is helpful info, but the article clearly breaks the 80/20 rule and it is really designed to lead me to the “buy” button.

        • Cendrine Marrouat

          Calls to action are not just about buying or advertisement. They can be used for pretty much anything: Inviting people to comment or click to read another useful article, for example.

          • Michael Britt

            I see. Good point Cendrine. thx

  • Cendrine Marrouat

    Great post, Tom! I particularly like the quote from Joe. It’s so true!

    • Tom George

      Thank you Cendrine! I really enjoyed putting a little extra effort into this post, and I am glad it payed off. I appreciate you reading it and commenting on it.

      • Cendrine Marrouat

        This little extra effort is paying, especially for me. You gave me some great food for thought for my own curation efforts!

        • Tom George

          I am so happy to hear that! Let’s discuss. I will send you a PM on Google Plus in a bit.

          • Cendrine Marrouat

            I look forward to the discussion.
