SEO Meetup: Content Curation and Content Marketing

This month's topic is: Content Curation and Content Marketing

Presented by: David Cox and Tysa Feenern

Sponsored by: Affordable Web Technology

Content curation is the process of sorting through the vast amounts of content on the web and presenting it in a meaningful and organized way around a specific theme. The work involves sifting, sorting, arranging, and publishing information. A content curator cherry picks the best content that is important and relevant to share with their community. It isn’t unlike what a museum curator does to produce an exhibition: they identify the theme, they provide the context, they decide which paintings to hang on the wall, how they should be annotated, and how they should be displayed for the public.

People and organizations are now making and sharing media and content all over the social web. For example, on Facebook the average user creates 90 pieces of content each month. If you multiply that by the 800 million Facebook users, it isn’t surprising that data or content on the Internet is measured in exabytes, or billions of gigabytes. Simply put, we are living an era of content abundance. A content curator offers high value to anyone looking for quality content because finding that information (and making sense of it) requires more and more time, attention, and focus.

Looking for some ideas to further your Internet marketing strategy?

Then you've come to the right place. This monthly event is typically held on the fourth Wednesday of every month and we start with an icebreaker topic and then move in to an open discussion that includes lots of Q&A. We have wi-fi, a computer and a projector, so not only do we discuss, we can actually look at examples as we talk about strategies and tactics.

Please come join us and mingle with industry professionals and people interested in Internet marketing.

    I have additional interest in this topic. I was under the impression that there was going to be the PowerPoint upload so that we could have them available to us. Can that happen?

    We had a great presentation from four people, each with a little different perspective on the topic. Very little overlap and lot's of great curated content.

    Location was a problem for hearing. One of the speakers is the anti-curator. Like the group approach in general, appreciate the work it takes

    I was very hard to hear the presenters. From my vantage point, the context was great.
