Robin Good's insight:



Startupery is a new online resource which organizes and curates best-practices, strategy advice, tips and methods for business startups.


The present library currently comprises over 500 hundred resources organized under 372 topics by 12 selected "experts", which include, among others, Fred Wilson (Vevnture Capitalist), Eric Ries (The Lean Startup), Chris Dixon (Investor) and Brad Feld (Early Stage Investor / Entrepreneur). 


For each expert you will find a page outlining his profile and presenting, in a categorized fashion, a selected number of sources suggested by him.


"For years, and now more than ever, startup founders, investors and operators have been sharing advice on how to succeed in business. From personal blogs to up-and-coming publications, this advice has been scattered and often hard to find when you need it mostStartup{ery is a library for this advice, giving each resource and the important topics that they cover a home on the internet."


An excellent and well-organized resource hub for startups, Simple, easy to navigate and staffed by a highly reputable set of subject-matter-experts / curators.

A great example of the value that content curation can bring to just about any field, where there is lot of precious information scattered around and which can greatly benefit from competent and trusted "organizers".

How Startups Can Gain Visibility and Reputation by Curating Great Content

How Startups Can Gain Visibility and Reputation by Curating Great Content | Content Curation World | Scoop.it

Jan Gordon: I selected this wonderful piece by Michael J. Fern of Intigi because it reinforces the importance of curation and has a lot of great insights.

 

In this article the author refers to Robert Scoble, who has built an enormous following on several social networks by curating and sharing the latest news about technology and startups.

 

He says that just like Scobleizer, startups should use curation to catapult their online presence and influence. Curation is a useful approach for all companies but especially for startups:

 

Here's what especially caught my attention:

 

a) Thought Leadership   

If outsiders view your company as a key source of  industry informataion, you will quickly build your brand recognition as well as develop trust and goodwill among customers.

 

b) Hub of Information   

By being first to market as a content curator in your space and by hosting curated content on your website, you can quickly rise as a primary destination site for those interested in your industry.

 

c) Collections    

By creating a bundle of articles, images, videos or websites that relate to a specific them and keeping it updated, this “guide” can become an important resource for social media marketers.

 

d) Content with Commentary    

Using 3rd party articles and adding your own point of view you can build a dedicated following. He refers to Daring Fireball, a blog that has built an impressive loyal following of 30,000

 


One Takeaway: 

Successful curators often employ several of these approaches in addition to producing their own original content

Content Curation for Startups: What Is It, Why and How To Use It | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Find out the basics of content curation including its definition, and how to perform successful content curation.
Robin Good's insight:



Good introductory article to content curation for startups: what it is, why and how to do it and what to focus on. 


The advice is good as well as the few examples provided. 


An excellent definition of content curators is also included: "Essentially, a content curator acts as a go-between publishers and readers. Think of them as personal trainers who not only tell you what to eat, but also deliver the best foods right to your doorstep."



Good reading for startuppers. 8/10
