To better spin user-generated content (UGC) into gold, content marketer Thismoment has announced its Content Cloud platform for rapidly organizing content into playlists that output as dynamic "cards."
Ankarino Lara, Thismoment's Chief Product Officer and co-founder, told CMSWire that the content on Content Cloud card is sometimes literally viewed as a interactive card, like on Twitter. In other cases, the "card" is more a content container that can be rendered via API in different ways for different formats, such as Facebook, Pinterest or Tumblr.

A successful content marketing strategy accounts for where content will ultimately be published. To effectively gauge how content will perform, it's essential that you understand how it measures up against your competitors as well as leaders in your industry. After all, there's a big difference between publishing a blog post to a website with a limited reach and publishing an article to a prominent, well-read website with a large audience. Even if you use popular keywords and write strategically about relevant topics, if you're not factoring in the reality of your website's influence, you may be setting your web content up for failure.

My article from last week was a labor of love and I was pleased with the quality of the Twitter response. The big shortcoming of the article, correctly pointed out by my editor, is a shortcoming of my articles in general. It is not even close to accessible to the audience on CMSWire. My use of terms like "reductionism," "monists" and "unary thinkers," while precise and evocative, are not the best choice in terms of audience accessibility. This lack of accessibility from a writing perspective is akin to making a functional site or interface intimidating and lacking in affordance (another fancy UX word).
