Let’s head back to our previous post on Struggling for Blog Content where we touched on the subject of content curation.
If you are short on time, this is the perfect way to create content to keep the consistency of your published posts, which of course keeps your on-line presence in the sights of search engines.
You will of course need a topic or theme to base your curated content on, and then all you need to do is find related articles, videos or images that relate to it [TIME SAVED]. You then present these within the body of your blog post. So for example, let’s use this topic! We want to demonstrate how to curate an interesting read for your audience by sharing the talents of others, but at the same time providing something informative that can demonstrate your knowledge.
Here’s an article (and our first example) with ideas for creating quick curated content:-
Blogging for your business is an important part of establishing your company as an industry thought leader, bringing in new site traffic, and converting that traffic into leads and customers.
The idea is to share a snippet of the article to interest your audience, without losing them at this point. You want them to read to the end of the post, and then re-visit the content. So in this space you would provide a short summary and then lead onto the next. For our next example, it’s a great eye-catcher to insert a video here:-
A great visual summary as to the main objective on content curation. Again, just providing a comment on your point of view of the content you have just shared is a great way to lead onto the next.
You need to know this guide because writing curated content is a method of providing value to your blog readers by using existing content from other online sources.
After the third example (above) this is an ideal place to provide your final conclusion. Summarize what you have shared and lead into a call to action.
If you are struggling to write your blog posts then why not give content curation a try? Once you get the hang of it, you’ll have so many posts scheduled [TIME SAVED], you will have created yourself a considerable amount of extra time to focus on your business.
