Exercise Caution: The Key Aspect To Pay Attention To For Novice Content Curators

Exercise Caution: The Key Aspect To Pay Attention To For Novice Content Curators | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:

If you are a novice content curator do not go for quantity. That is not what makes the difference. Go for high-quality, and consistency.


Steer away from the temptation of republishing or sharing anything that you have not read and vet in full.


"The best curators out there did not build such impressive followerships by carelessly retweeting, sharing or promoting low-quality content.


These brilliant individuals:


a) never curate an article that they haven’t read in full,

 

b) never support something they don’t believe in,


c) never get lazy.


How do you think they would look in the eyes of their fans if they judged content based only on a title and the first two paragraphs?


Lack of quality is the number one downfall of content curators.


Granted, your audience will not be increasing by the thousands, but if you prioritize quality over quantity the people who choose to follow you will actually matter."



My comment: Key strategy n.1 (and n.3) in this article are the only one worthwhile paying attention to. The other ones are, in my opinion, actually misleading. You don't need to focus on latest trendy content and breaking news, curating content other than text is a well known strategy as much as the obviousness of keeping your focus always in sight.


Strategy n.1 is a fantastic reminder for novice content curators: 6/10
