Scoop.it Curating for Influence in Step 17 to conquer Social Media 2012

Scoop.it allows you to be a curator in your favourite subject and influence the web...




Hi, this is Wayne Mansfield. Welcome back to my 23 Steps to Conquer Social Media 2012.

One of the great things about the Internet now, it allows you
to be a curator. That is, you collect all interesting information on a particular subject that you want authority on, and put it in one place. One of the really great applications that allows you to do that is one called Scoop.it, which is S-C-O-O-P. -.I.T.

Basically, Scoop.it is a function which is if you're interested in a particular subject, they provide a steady flow of information regarding that subject. You select which ones you want to publish, and they publish it under your Scoop.it channel. So, the two subjects that I have chosen are Margaret River, my place of birth, and I sort of carry a little flag for Margaret River wherever I go in the world. The wine is fantastic, the cheese is unbelievable, the dairy products just fantastic. They have world surfing championships at the point, where I, as a kid, learned how to surf.

I have this fond place in my heart for Margaret River, so I publish one or
two articles a week about Margaret River.

And then, the other one that I have Scoop.it curate for me is People with Klout, K-L-O-U-T, and it finds articles for me that I put out on a regular basis about Klout. What this does is feed back to my other outlets on the net, and it gives me more authority in those two areas. So, I recommend that you have a look at Klout.

I think you can have up to five subjects
before you go into their paid model, but it works fantastically well.

That's Step 17 of my 23 Steps to Conquer Social Media 2012.

Until next
time, this is Wayne Mansfield saying, thank you for looking in.
