Top ways to find industry-related content for social media activities

By Posted in - Community & Media Relations & Public Relations & Social Media & Technology on April 11th, 2012 0 Comments

An editor and I were recently talking about the social media activities we manage for one of our clients that is in the architectural and design industry (A&D).

He asked, “how do you find useful content to share on such a regular basis?”

Yesterday Caitlin gave very specific ways on how we have contributed to conversations for some of our clients through National Architecture Week activities.  And I’m including some of the top ways our team at Full Circle collects social media content – to participate in ongoing conversations in relevant industries:

  • Scan RSS feeds of industry-related blogs – for the A&D industry, we monitor blogs such as A Daily Dose of Architecture, Design*Sponge and Design Milk, among others.
  • Read industry publications – to get up-to-date information on upcoming events, case studies and A&D industry announcements, we subscribe to both print and online versions of Interiors & Sources, Architectural Record and Contract magazine – to name a few.
  • Monitor social media channels – many industry associations, organizations – as well as its members – are online, and we stay current with industry happenings by not only sharing information on our channels – but monitoring others, as well.

How do you keep up to date in your respective industry?  We’d love to hear from you.

Share this to keep the conversation going:
