Content curation involves gathering, organizing and sharing online content that you think your customers will really appreciate. This content doesn’t have to be directly tied to your products or services, but instead speak to topics you know your customers are interested in.
For example, a wedding planner could collect all kinds of content about wedding dresses, fresh flower arrangements, cake design, etiquette and more. Even though the wedding planner doesn’t provide any of these services, they’re obviously topics of interest to their clients.
Today’s customers are perpetually hungry for information. You don’t have to do the work of creating this information yourself – but by providing organized access to it, you enjoy the benefit of having a reason for your customers to engage with your brand, often directly on your website.
Content Curation sites such as paper.li, Rebel Mouse, and Storify automate the content curation process to some extent. These sites make it easier to find content that will be interesting to your customers by searching websites and social media for the keywords and topics you indicate are most relevant. Some sites also offer the ability to include content recommended by other users.
Create a daily, weekly or monthly customizable newspaper delivered directly to your subscribers’ inbox. Easy to use newsroom allows you to automatically draw content from the sites and social media platforms more relevant to your customers. Make sure to take advantage of the editor’s note feature that allows you to speak directly to your readership.
Organize and display all of the content from your social media presence in one central, visually compelling location. If you’re like the typical small business owner, a significant amount of the content on your social media site is not material you created yourself, and is instead items you shared from other sources.
Combine your own content with content you’ve found online or had recommended to you by other Scoop.it users on Topic Pages. Slightly more labor-intensive than Paper.li, Scoop.it allows business owners to send out a monthly newsletter at the free level; weekly newsletter functionality becomes available at the paid level.
Collect content from across the Web and publish what you’ve found on Storify’s platform, which can be embedded in your own website. Easily shared content is a great way to connect with your customers. At the paid level, Storify offers privacy settings which make it an ideal tool for internal communications regarding market research and other online inquiries.

A short Subject Line makes it more likely that the entire Subject Line will appear on the list and not be cut off mid sentence. The two examples below are exactly as they appeared in my inbox:
OpenSky is more than a community, it’s a movement, to discover, share, shop and grow the world’s most exciting emerging brands. Together we’re democratizing commerce by making connections between creative and passionate small businesses and shoppers who crave quality and diversity.
Instagram is a social channel that let’s you snap photos (and now video), add creative filters and share them with your followers. The photos can be posted not only on Instagram, but on social channels like Facebook and Twitter too.
In the last couple of years, we’ve seen the rise of a new type of financing that every entrepreneur should know about: crowdfunding. Crowdfunding by definition is a collective effort, in which investors and donors pool their money and other resources together, usually via the internet, to support efforts initiated by other people or organizations.
Kickstarteris a self-proclaimed “new way to fund and follow creativity,” hosting projects ranging from film-making, to food to comics and so on. People must apply to Kickstarter for a project; if accepted, they will receive guidelines on how to post about it. Project owners choose a deadline and a target minimum of funds to raise. If the chosen target is not reached by the deadline, no funds are collected. Funds are collected using Amazon payments and must be deposited through a US account. Kickstarter takes 5% of the funds raised, and Amazon charges an additional 3-5%, but Kickstarter itself retains no ownership over the projects.
Many crowdfunding sites have launched in the past few years, including the well-known U.S.-basedKickstarter, but one that entrepreneurs should keep an eye for isSprowd, a crowdfunding vehicle that focuses on investment for startups around the globe.
Normally national funds are available for new entrepreneurs to start up their business mainly from the National Unemployment Agencies.
e.g in Turkey, new SMEs and startups can receive state funding from KOSGEB for opening and running more efficiently their own business.
SOLVIT is an on-line problem solving network in which EU Member States work together to solve without legal proceedings problems caused by the misapplication of Internal Market law by public authorities.

They are part of the national administration and are committed to providing real solutions to problems within ten weeks. Using SOLVIT is free of charge.

CYBERALL ACCESS will prepare also the template for collecting innovative and state of the art practices based on web 2.0 and cloud that are applied by entrepreneurs across the world. Each partner then will be responsible for collecting relevant information and completing the templates provided based on information at least from their country. However, information will be collected also from other member states across Europe and internationally. Based on the collected material, two consolidated reports will be prepared by the coordinator that will contain respectively a) a collection of Web 2.0 and cloud based tools and services suitable for advancing businesses of current or potential entrepreneurs, b) a collection of good practices and successful stories of new entrepreneurs and SMEs that have exploited efficiently web 2.0 tools and have advanced their businesses in a cost effective way. These two reports will be initiated as early as possible in the project but they will be continually updated during the whole duration of the project. Also the content of the collected material will be published online through an interactive portal by the coordinator.
