A somewhat new service is available in beta called "Scoop.it."
Scoop.it allows you to create a "newspaper" of sorts from things you find interesting on the web. I'm experimenting with the service and of course I thought of you, gentle reader.
I asked myself - "what would help my readers in their day-to-day life and business." And I answered - "a grouping of articles that someone else took the time to read and evaluate so that they can see what's hot and what's not in the incentive industry with little or no effort on their part."
That, is what Scoop.it facilitates. And that is what I'm offering to you. So, for the first (and possibly the last - but probably not) time I give you the...
I subscribe to over 350 different blogs, sites, what-have-yous on a variety of subjects from science and pyschology to how to build steam-punk watches. In addition, I monitor my twitter stream where I'm following 2,000+ people. I also get a lot via email. I have a lot of info coming in.
It's from all those input streams that I find ideas for posts on this blog, posts on the FistfulofTalent blog and posts for clients and friends. It's how I keep up with the industry and business in general.
And now you can have a subset of that firehouse, vetted and consolidated for your reading pleasure.
It's simply called the I2I Incentive and Reward Industry Compendium.
Want to Be Included?
Many of the feeds I get are from incentive and reward companies. Some of their blogs have some interesting stuff you should be aware of. In fact - if you want to be sure you're at least included in the first pass shoot me a note and let me know where your site is and I'll take a look and add it to my reader list.
CAVEAT: If you have your feed set up to only show a "summary" or an excerpt so that I have to click through to the site - forget it. Don't bother sending me the site info. Feeds that only show a summary are simply padding their web page stats trading clicks for readers. I don't click through. I ignore the content ... period. No exceptions. A feed reader is for me to get info WITHOUT clicking out to your site. So don't suggest your site if it only offers a summary feed. (btw - none of your readers appeciate it either - it's a pain in the ass and it shows that the site is about you not them - they will remember that. Just sayin'.)
Hope you find it interesting and helpful. Let me know what you think in the comments. Continue or cut? Your call.
