3 Content Curation Tools for the Beginning Marketer

Content, Social Media 0 Comments

Man Working on Computer with Strategy ConceptThought leaders are a beacon of light in the vast amount of content available, and by sharing great content, they build trust with their readers. Content curation is one step in becoming a thought leader because your audience will soon regard you as someone who is consistently up-to-date on the industry and full of unique ideas to share. Curation is a great way to support your created content strategy, publish content consistently, and keep track of your favorite information sources.

Here, we share our picks for three content curation tools for beginners to get you started on collecting, annotating, and sharing relevant content with your audience.

Pocket

Pocket helps users curate content by providing a platform for users to save content they find on the Internet in one place. Pocket keeps all of your interesting images, articles, and videos in one place for reference. You can group items by tagging, and built-in search functionality makes finding those articles easy. Ditch the laundry list of bookmarks and links in your email inbox and turn to Pocket to curate these useful articles to look back at when you have time.

Twitter Lists

If you’re on Twitter, you’ve already done half the work of curating content through this technology. Instead of sifting through a continuous feed of tweets all day, users can create lists that fall into distinct categories based on the account. For example, an advisor might create a list dedicated to financial news with accounts such as Investment News and Financial Planning, one dedicated to accounts that cover retirement planning, and one devoted to the latest news in their community. Then, instead of spending hours catching up on their feeds, they can take the information directly from the accounts that they can easily access.

Flipboard

Flipboard is a go-to content curation application and website because it is easy to use and users can specify what content they want to see. The site has categories such as personal finance, funding news, and the stock market bubble. By choosing just the categories that are relevant, users can quickly sift through news, articles, videos, and blogs that are generated just for them.

Content curation accounts for 38% of marketers’ top investment areas. Many more content curation tools aren’t listed here, but these three are free, easy-to-use tools to get you started. Sharing great, useful content for your audience builds trust and sets you apart from the competition as someone your clients can turn to for information.

Distill Your Niche

"...while they can’t turn back the clock and address these issues beforehand - such as increasing their spouse’s life insurance or saving more - there are ways to take control and feel more confident in their future.
When working with widows, there are a few first steps I recommend taking:

1. Get Organized
Whether or not you handled all of your family’s finances, some, or none, the first step is to organize your financial documents. Before you can determine how to budget and what steps to take, you have to first understand where you stand financially. If you are having trouble translating your investment account statements, a financial advisor can help you understand what your documents mean. You’ll want to copy and safeguard your important documents and review life insurance policies with a trusted advisor.

2. Budget for a Single Income
More than half of widows have difficulty adjusting to a single income. This may because they haven’t reevaluated their bills and expenses and adjusted..."

Consistent Messaging

"...Once we understand your family’s current circumstances, goals, and unique needs, we develop strategies to help preserve and potentially grow your wealth and take over the time-consuming tasks associated with managing your complex financial affairs. Working with a family office can benefit families in a number of ways, including:

  • Preserving wealth through proactive management and appropriate strategies
  • Mitigating risk by diversifying investments
  • Assisting with the transfer of wealth from one generation to the next through strategic asset allocation and estate planning..."

Unique Articles in Your Voice

"...More than likely, you have a clear understanding of your relationship with your doctor or your dentist. You pay a fee and, in return, you receive a service, including advice and recommendations based on your individual situation. It would make sense then for your relationship with your financial advisor to be the same; but for many, that’s not the case.

At Financial Guideposts, we’ve noticed a trend: that the general public does not understand the relationship they have with their financial advisor. We want to change that. We believe there are two critical aspects you should understand when working with a financial advisor: how he or she gets paid and what services he or she provides..."
