Curation Tips and Tools for Non Profits featuring J.D. Lasica

Did you miss #ScoopitChat for Non Profits Featuring J.D. Lasica yesterday? We summed it up so that no one misses out on the great insights and advice that came out during this exciting hour!

Some key takeaways from the chat include:

-The importance of curation in your quest to organize all of the information on the web and lift signal out of noise.

-The practicality of curation to build thought leadership, become an authority, and give your point of view on topics without starting from scratch.

-Curation is more than showing off; it’s about adding value to shared content and allowing non-celebs to become stars in their fields.

-There are tons of great curation tools out there: Scoop.it, Instagram, Deligious, Storify, Zeega, Google+, and Pinterest.

-Curation helps generate content, add a layer of value to that content, drive traffic to your website, establish you and/or your brand as an authority.

Check out the transcript of the chat, and don’t forget to stay tuned at the beginning of next week to find out next week’s topic! See you all next Thursday at 11am PST!

    I have to admit I’m not 100% clear on exactly what content curation is. Guess I must not spend enough time on the internet…
