New curated blog from Celtar business consultants
I launched this blog a few months ago, with the objectives
- of providing news on Irish business
- and as a useful & constructive information point on doing business in Ireland
More specifically, the new blog is about doing business from Ireland as much as in Ireland. For example, the export activities of many Irish firms are highlighted.
Stories on exporting, FDI (foreign direct investment), business support (Enterprise Ireland and other agencies) a little economics and features on Celtar, our clients and business partners – are all included.
Often additional comments are made on published stories.
What is a curated blog?
A curated blog is made up of content aggregated from a variety of sources; other blogs, Twitter, YouTube, websites, Facebook etc.
Probably the best known Irish curated blog is the news blog http://storyful.com .
A curated blog can have ‘followers’ just like other social media platforms. And stories may be tagged.
Social media curation tool, www.Scoop.it review
The Scoop.it tool is easy to use. Posts can be selectively shared with Twitter, Linkedin and Facebook – which is a great facility for me. I use the free edition. There is more functionality available with the professional version.
One comment from a reader “it is a useful resource for catching up on business stories I may have missed from the papers, net or radio”. Your feedback is welcome.
We are planning with Conor Lynch and his team at SocialMedia.ie to provide training in ‘Winning business with Digital Marketing’. Date and venue to be announced next week, (venue will be central Dublin, dates in late May and early June).
This will be an update on the successful training we sponsored with SocialMedia.ie last year.
