Get Off The Hampster Wheel And Ride The Wave With The New Age Of Cryptocosm

.

Get Off The Hampster Wheel And Ride The Wave With The New Age Of Cryptocosm.

Are Governments Still In The Industrial Age? 

Companies in the private sector are implementing cutting-edge technology while governments are still grappling with large-scale information technology projects. The disparity between the two is in all likelihood going to get wider as Blockchain technology becomes more prevalent.  

The crisis facing governments is the trust factor. Increasingly we are less inclined to trust the workings of a government and see it as flawed and controlling. There is a growing negative view among Society that government officials and regulators are not credible.   

As our governments remain in the industrial age they are becoming less relevant and it is probably going to accelerate. The structure and processes of most governments date back to pre-1950’s. Why is this? Apathy? Or could it be they fear a loss of control? 

 

The Information Age Of The Internet

On a global scale, governments were trying to gain control of the internet when it realized the danger of losing power. These efforts have proven to be in vain. So now Governments and the tech giants are colluding with both having similar end goals. Governments want to regulate the tech monopolies because that’s what they intrinsically do, plus for monetary gains. The tech giants want to be ruled by governments because regulation makes it more difficult and expensive for free enterprise or new competitors entering the market. 

What once was the global information superhighway deemed to be free and privacy was not an issue, is now being shattered by tech monopolies and governments. Some would argue they are killing the internet, us as a society and the future. I beg to differ. They’re forgetting about efflorescence of creativity and human intelligence that has emerged in the private sector.

 

Now We Have The Cryptocosm Age 

The Futurist and Author of Life After Google, George Gilder says,

“This very lack of concern with security will be google’s undoing. For every other player on the net, the lack of security is the most relevant threat to its current business model, This problem will be solved… So fundamental will security be to this new system that its very name will be derived from it. It will be the CRYPTOCOSM”

The cryptocosm is the amazing, providential development of creativity which has erupted all over the world which supplies a new architecture for the internet. This will also indeed be a new architecture for the entire world economy. This is at a very crucial time as the system of the central banks with its 5.1 trillion a day currency trading that fails to arrive at significant currency values and the architecture of the internet today which requires us to jumps through hoops and bare all with the present authentication methods is bankrupt. Some think that this is a viable system but the fact is it is failing every day. This will be replaced by the cryptocosm, the Blockchain.

As George Gilder states,

“Security is not a procedure or mechanism, it is an architecture. The Cryptocosm will start by defining the ground state, the foundation.  It is the ultimate non-random reality. The ground state is you.”

Blockchain Technology – As Undecryptable As Our DNA

What this means is Blockchain technology will permit us all to have private keys which are as individual as us and undecryptable as our DNA. Fundamentally Blockchain is the new architecture for the internet that allows you to keep your information to yourself. It’s a distributed ledger of human intelligence and information in global networks. It’s not conglomerated in one centralized database owned and controlled by government agencies or the tech giants of today. 

The Blockchain did originate as a form of money, Bitcoin, however, over the last decade it has since been discovered that any and all companies can utilize Blockchain technology making all information, transactions, and behavior immutable and unimpeachable. This protects us as individuals and as a society. So not only does this eliminate privacy issues, it documents all data immutably, and can be proven in the case of attestation which is an important advance that the Blockchain offers, whether it be in third world countries, eastern or the western world. 

The tech giants have a business plan and a technological solution that is inappropriate to a world full of human individual minds. The individual is the resource and Blockchain will empower the individual and conditions of economic and political liberties. 

The Blockchain and related cryptographic technologies breaking through with a creative insurgency is the answer to the problem we are afflicted with the monopolies. It provides a distribution of intelligence, privacy, and personal rights and points of view that has been lost. The Blockchain is part of the public world where great human adventures are conducted, where great new companies are launched and the continued dynamics of human creativity is expressed. This is just the beginning. We will not be subject to being consumed or held to ransom and governed by tech giants and governments in a centralized fashion. 

 

We are watching this tsunami obliterate the banks, polices and centralized government control. This MEME just about sums it up.

Markethive – A Central Hub In A Decentralized Environment

Markethive is a decentralized, autonomous, fluid environment which includes manifestations of intellectual achievements, social habits, innovation, music, literature, technology, commerce, and the arts. A central “hub” built using blockchain technology, is designed to encourage “reciprocal interchange” of ideas, knowledge or skills as well as providing for exchange, sales or purchases of goods, services, and commodities. 

With a history of over 20 years in Inbound Marketing, including SaaS, CRM, and CMS, Markethive does have the edge and is on track to bring proven products and services to a much needy market, including digital news and social media. It is essentially the process of attracting prospects via content creation, creating brand awareness and integrity leading to healthy relationships built on collaboration and sovereignty. 

This futuristic model is here now and fully prepared for the future, truly representing a prime example of the next generation; The Market Network. Markethive has the road map and is the blueprint of where things are headed. 

 

Markethive Bringing Sovereignty To All 

Look out for the obliteration of these outdated centralized agencies and the big tech with the technology of the last decade as we move into the next generation where privacy, free speech, autonomy and the right to be individuals and Entrepreneurs in a free enterprise system comes to fruition with Markethive. The only system that rewards, creating universal income and gives the power back to all who engage on the platform.

Crypto is unstoppable, even though governments and the elites will do everything they can to destroy it. Technology will destroy them. The Rise of the Entrepreneur is gaining momentum. Markethive is the ecosystem for Entrepreneurs. Are you ready to ride the great wave?

Millennials Next Financial Investors Going Crypto. What Does That Mean For Gold and Fiat? 

.

Millennials Next Financial Investors Going Crypto. What Does That Mean For Gold and Fiat? 

The CEO of Digital Currency Group, Barry Silbert, clarifies his reasoning why the game changer’s of tomorrow are outfitting to dump gold for Bitcoin and other advanced resources. 

Silbert's Grayscale Bitcoin Trust, which permits regular financial specialists access to BTC, increased 192% in the second quarter of 2019, surpassing all other funds for the first half of the year. As an early Bitcoin speculator, Silbert has a long-term outlook on the rising innovation of technology, having viewed cryptocurrency fluctuate aggressively through many bull and bear cycles. Presently, by checking the quickly thriving enthusiasm among institutional financial specialists, he accepts gold's status is firmly deteriorating. 

The main concern and bottom line as to the state of gold is it’s clunky, bulky, inconvenient and not conducive to smartphones – not really a Millennial thing, who shop on Amazon, hail rides on Uber, search information on Google, make companions on Facebook, get together on Tinder, stream programs on Hulu, tune in to music on Spotify and track their pulses on a Fitbit.

Silbert is sure the appeal that gold did have will relinquish, right along with physical dollars. He states

“It’s clear that money is going digital, and it’s clear that in the future, physical cash is going to go away. And it’s also clear based on history that fiat currency tends to not exist into perpetuity. The average life of fiat currency over the past 500 hundred is 27 years. So what that means is, on average, in 27 years, a government will destroy their currency or devalue their currency, typically through debasement or through war.”

Silbert says he doesn’t see Bitcoin replacing the US dollar in the short term, but he recognizes we are seeing a changing tide in places like Venezuela, Argentina and other countries with struggling economies where cryptocurrencies have certainly gained a place and paved the way for further development in these challenged economies. 

“It’s clear that something other than the local fiat currency would have real demand and real appeal.”

Barry Silbert shares,

“I think what many gold investors don’t seem to appreciate is that the next generation of investors, the next generation of asset allocators, do not view gold the same way that our parents or grandparents did.”

“Over the next couple of decades, there’s an estimated $68 trillion of wealth that’s going to be handed down. That’s just in the US. That $68 trillion is going to be handed down from Baby boomers to Gen X and Gen Y and Millennials. I’m absolutely convinced that whatever of that $68 trillion is currently in gold, it’s not going to stay in gold. I’m not saying it’s going to Bitcoin but I know it’s not going to stay in gold. So if gold stops performing the way gold investors think it should in periods of high inflation or macro-economic dislocation, I think it’s game over. I think the next generation of investors is going to put their money elsewhere.”

While the 487,000 gold bars weighing in at 6,190 tons or around 12.4 million lbs the Federal Reserve Bank of New York holds for its clients such as the US government, foreign governments, central banks, and other institutions, it continues to decline. The growing number of bitcoin and cryptocurrency supporters declare crypto is a far superior way to store wealth. It’s portable, lightweight and traceable and not held by any conglomerate. 

Over the last 10 years since the advent of Bitcoin, Society has gone through 5 different phases. First, there was denial, then skepticism, then an intellectual curiosity coming through to believing in the new currency and finally evolving into evangelists where cryptocurrency is seen for the greater good it can accomplish for the people en masse. 

 

Necessity Is The Mother Of Invention 

Necessity being the mother of invention has brought forth visionaries, architects and originators of technology to rise up with the purpose of benevolently wanting to see the world a better place. This is now proven as the unbanked and struggling countries experience a better economy, autonomy and financial freedom that was sorely lacking. 

We’ve seen how our privacy has been invaded and free speech curtailed to the point where some lost their livelihood due to being deplatformed from the tech giants of social media. Free enterprise is diminished by the monopolies, and yet there are more people than ever trying to create a home-based business. Many of us strive for a better life for our families and endeavor to seek opportunities that the technology of today can bring. But who do you trust? Is there a place of integrity where the entrepreneurial mindset is revered, not just for the elite or professional, but for the little guy and gal looking to free themselves from the tyrannical pressures? Yes, there is. Read on… 

 

Markethive – A Step Ahead Of The Rest

Markethive and its creator Thomas Prendergast envisioned what has come to pass is the balkanization and autocratic style and behavior of the very influential tech giants that have monopolized the social media and marketing space since the early noughties. What may have been good intentions is becoming a disaster for humanity on every level. 

CEO and Founder of Markethive Thomas Prendergast says,

“Markethive is a philanthropic endeavor. To give, not take. To help not exploit. Markethive is a safe, secure, generous, unique and simply the most powerful marketing social network an Entrepreneur could have. Markethive is an easily understood, gamified, monetized and incentivized to bring the connection back to humanity to really help share and grow each other. We have a culture and a system whereby all users are rewarded for their activity instead of being stripped of everything we do by the social media monopolies for their own gain. The Markethive platform can be utilized by everyone.”

Markethive is the first Social Market Network to be built on the Blockchain. What that means your privacy is ensured, freedom of speech and autonomy is paramount. Markethive has listed its coin (MHV) on an exchange while still in beta until its own exchange and wallet is implemented. 

When I asked what impact will this coin have and how is it utilized for the benefit of all in the Markethive Ecosystem, this is what Thomas had to say,

“The Markethive coin will not be dependent upon speculative value as is the case with other cryptocurrencies and platforms, thereby creating eternal economic velocity in the entrepreneur ecosystem within Markethive. This is a fundamental difference to the other systems currently out there today.  The Markethive system has been developed to produce revenue in the traditional sense with the added benefits of the blockchain taking it to the next level.”

He went on to say, 

“The Markethive Coin is a Consumer coin, is being utilized within the Markethive exchange by way of airdrops and the faucet system which rewards associates using the platform, so the coin is used within the commerce of the system thus creating the velocity. The Revenue is a vehicle that is used to buy the Markethive coin back in the free market so it can be redistributed into the economic vortex of the system. Once the Markethive Exchange and wallet are introduced that will allow Markethive Members to convert their coins to a number of strong cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin and fiat. So now is a perfect time to accumulate your coins” 

Thomas concluded by saying, 

 “My vision is to empower and bring prosperity to every living soul with a purpose. Even if that purpose is only to be free from the shackles of the Social Media tyranny we all face. This is a new era with the evolution of technology. It is the next generation.”

“Markethive will be huge. We got things rolling years ahead of others” 

People are now flocking to Markethive. They see what this system is capable of and how they can benefit. Even though Markethive is still in Beta, the Inbound Marketing tools that are forever free, by the way, are operational and the social entrepreneurial culture is alive and well. The launch is set for the 4th quarter of 2019 after 4 years of implementing the Blockchain and perfecting this state of the art system. This is the next generation of all things Social Media and Market Network.

MARKETHIVE – One Company That Is Bucking The Trends

.

MARKETHIVE – One Company That Is Bucking The Trends

Centralized Social Media platforms, like Facebook, Google, LinkedIn to name a few, have been paramount and prevalent in our lives for nearly 2 decades so many people are unaware of the technology that is available to us now. The upcoming platforms classed as Market Networks are a sovereign way to develop online communities giving the power back to the people. With the onset of Blockchain along with Cryptocurrency, this absolutely levels the playing field. What this means is complete privacy, autonomy, and freedom of speech as well as the ability to earn an income. There are a handful of new Blogging Community Platforms that have already risen using crypto by way of their own tokens as an incentive to use the platforms.

The Social Media platforms we have today are ultimately accountable to their shareholders and staff and as an enormous amount of users utilize these platforms predominantly for free, forthcoming profit will not come from user engagement or user growth. It comes by other means which has been and is detrimental to the community at large. Centralization has also created tension within the communities due to algorithmic partisanship, rules that keep changing, banning and deleting of accounts wiping out all the effort and results entrepreneurs have implemented to establish an online presence. 

 

A New Era Is Here 

There are now new systems and platforms being built that have much better outcomes for humankind in every aspect including economic benefits and privacy. Now everyone can enjoy all the benefits of a social media environment along with all the marketing and blogging tools and portals. Below are the vertical platforms we have now, all centralized. One organization, in particular, has incorporated all the different types of social media and eCommerce, all on one interface:

• Social networking (Facebook, Google+ Webtalk).
• Microblogging (Twitter, Tumblr).
• Photo sharing (Instagram, Snapchat, Pinterest).
• Video sharing (YouTube, Facebook Live, Periscope, Vimeo).
• Networking Business & Employment (LinkedIn)
• eCommerce (Freelancers, Coin Exchange)
• Content & Blogging (Medium, Quora, Steemit ) 

Markethive is recognized as the next phase that has evolved from Social Networks. Having commenced over 20 years ago as an Inbound Marketing platform via Veretekk, it now has the technology that is capable to combine the scalable network effects of Facebook or LinkedIn with the lucrative revenue models of Saas and marketplace hubs like eBay and Amazon. It has vertical platforms like freelancers and coin exchange, also a collaboration niche for commercial artists, writers, voice & video services. It is 20 years of proven technology, merging with the blockchain. It's built on a higher generation blockchain to make it possible to handle large social groups. 

 

Thomas Prendergast, Markethive's CEO stated:

"Markethive was built on the foundation of 20 years of proprietary technology and has been running live with 1000s of subscribers in beta for nearly 4 years. Markethive's mission is to create a universal income for entrepreneurs, using our multiple platforms built for the entrepreneurial markets. Markethive has a working product, starting out 20 years ago as Veretekk, then segwayed into what is now Markethive which is launching on the blockchain.”

To find out more I spoke to some of the members who are in long-standing:  

David Ogden, Markethive Entrepreneur said:

"Markethive is no flash in the pan marketing system, it was born out of Veretekk, developed by Tom Prendergast, who is a master in marketing. I joined Veretekk around 2000, The system produced endless quality leads and an email system to communicate with them. The system was free and could be used to build any business. The rise of the Blockchain offers more security with a distributed network.”

Dennis Roeder shared:

“I first became acquainted with Thomas Prendergast back in 1988. There was always open communication and direction on what was in the development stages and what to expect. Mr. Prendergast had a divine vision to produce a system that would be entirely free for members to use the marketing tools. Veretekk slowly evolved into a company named Markethive which was designed to be a Free to members platform. Then along came the Blockchain and Bitcoin, and that gave a reason for Markethive to be the 'go-to' Market Network for entrepreneurs. Members will have free access to the tools plus as they use the system they can be paid using a new term called Universal Income.”

ecosystem for entrepreneurs

What is underpinning Markethive to ensure it’s viability?

Markethive's innovation is producing Mining Hives that create massive surplus electricity built on total 100% green energy. Along with Hemp/Medicinal Cannabis cultivation, it's sure to be a winner in the blockchain space and crypto industry. With its own coin exchange, ease of liquidity and underpinned by a plethora of Inbound Marketing products for its End Users, it's a complete Ecosystem for Entrepreneurs, Bloggers, and Commercial Artists. This is a platform to keep an eye on as it comes up through the ranks. This is going to disrupt Social Media and all forms of marketing as we know it.
 

Mr. Prendergast explained: 

“We produce the coin to give as an incentive to sign up in Markethive as PayPal did. We are not using the coin to raise money. It's not speculative but has the ability and potential to become very valuable due to many products and services that are in high demand. So pump and dumps won't affect the company or its revenue. It’s not dependent upon speculation of their coin. We are dependent upon delivering services and products people want whether the coin is up or down, which in turn will increase the value of the coin despite the markets.” 

The era representing the rise of the entrepreneur has arrived, while other organizations, inbound marketing providers, blockchain implementers, and cryptocurrencies are still frozen in time. With Blockchain, cryptocurrency, inbound marketing, and decentralized database technologies, Markethive has constructed a social market network that provides a “Universal Income”. Markethive’s culture is one of innovation and the ECO-SYSTEM is part of the New Revolution. It is 27 years of proven technology, merging with the blockchain. This will result in a flotilla of money machines driving the basic platforms while creating an eco-center for entrepreneurs, where they can create and maintain a livable income while turning their ideas and concepts into reality.
 

Markethive Entrepreneur, Richard Mathiason said: 

“I have been with Thomas Prendergast since Veretekk. I enjoyed being a Trainer at that time and using Veretekk to gather Leads. Thomas has always been ahead of the times in regards to marketing. The free marketing tools that he has developed over time have been amazing.”
 

Richard went on to say:

“Technology has finally caught up with Thomas's Grand Vision. We are now able to correct some problems that all social networks have. We are moving the Network to a Blockchain to showcase our Privacy Policy, decentralize the platform to make it harder to hack, adding 4 levels of Security and creating a Wallet that will only allow you to have control of your network. The best part is that Thomas is a good friend and he will drop everything to help someone out. Thank You for being my friend and for Markethive, the best social/market out there.”

Conclusion

It’s just a matter of time until nearly all independent professionals and their clients will conduct business through the development of tight-knit collaborative Market Networks within specific industries.

Starting NOW, there will be many more forward-thinking entrepreneurs stepping forward, with their sights set upon creating increasingly innovative, highly synchronized business models and solutions to doing business in the 21st century and beyond. Those who will be most successful will not only keep up with the speed at which technology continues to change, but they will align themselves ahead of the curve at all times.

Market Networks will have a massive positive impact on how millions of people work and live, and how hundreds of millions of people buy and sell better services.

Markethive Uses OAuth? What Is It? 

.

Markethive Uses OAuth? What Is It? 

When setting up an account with a new service and they request registration via your social account, is it secure? What exactly is OAuth? 

To begin at a high level, OAuth is not an API or a service: it's an open standard for authorization and anyone can implement it. More specifically, OAuth is a standard that apps can use to provide client applications with “secure delegated access.” It’s like having a valet key to your car. 

Techno Babble: For the Techies

OAuth is an open standard for access delegation, commonly used as a way for Internet users to grant websites or applications access to their information on other websites but without giving them the passwords.

This mechanism is used by companies such as Amazon, Markethive, Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and Twitter to permit users to share information about their accounts with third-party applications or websites.

Generally, OAuth provides clients with a "secure delegated access" to server resources on behalf of a resource owner. It specifies a process for resource owners to authorize third-party access to their server resources without sharing their credentials. Designed specifically to work with Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), OAuth essentially allows access tokens to be issued to third-party clients by an authorization server, with the approval of the resource owner. The third party then uses the access token to access the protected resources hosted by the resource server.[3]

OAuth is a service that is complementary to and distinct from OpenID. OAuth is also distinct from OATH, which is a reference architecture for authentication, not a standard for authorization. However, OAuth is directly related to OpenID Connect (OIDC) since OIDC is an authentication layer built on top of OAuth 2.0. OAuth is also distinct from XACML, which is an authorization policy standard. OAuth can be used in conjunction with XACML where OAuth is used for ownership consent and access delegation whereas XACML is used to define the authorization policies (e.g. managers can view documents in their region).

More easily explained for the Laymen:

When registering a new account in Markethive, we use OAuth. This cookie has a driven socket connection verification process that passes (with your permission) your “name, email and picture” from your selected account (Gmail, Yahoo, LinkedIn, Facebook, etc.) to our database, server, the blockchain, to verify who you are.

NOTE: It does not give us access to your Social account or additional data. It is strictly for setting up a new account and keeping it secure to you.

This process stores this data on our servers, blockchain, your wallet so we can validate that it is you coming and going to our secure encrypted dashboard of services. This adds a huge layer of security for you and the community.

This process does not give us your password or access to your social or email account. It is like you knocked on the door to come in. We request your ID and note the serial number and confirm through a 3rd party that ID number name your photo is you and we give you an access badge to enter.

Markethive uses 128 bit SSL security for our dashboards as well, so all information traveling from your device to our system is highly encrypted.

Markethive is also in the process of implementing OpenID, which will be using a 2FA process via Google Authenticator until our Crypto wallets are released, then the 2FA process will run through them.

We also request a working cell phone number for further security sending additional verification to that number for things like credit card changes, additions, coin transfers, etc.

After passing through the OAuth and 2FA your freedom to travel throughout the Markethive system as you are granted. Only you have access to this information and only you can terminate your account and this information. No one else can. This is the reason we embrace OAuth and blockchain. It keeps your data under your control and no one else.

So when you decide to join Markethive, your security is our highest priority. Gone from our system is the aged old process and the very nonsecure process of entering fields with your name, email, phone, etc. then retrieving a verification email with a validation link.

This is why you are seeing this type of registration becoming commonplace. This process also prevents 3rd parties from tracking you on our secure distributed security data system.

Notably, verification through OAuth guarantees email delivery to your inbox and not your spam folder and completely negates “fake” accounts and spammy email addresses. 

We invite you to take Markethive for a ride and see for yourself what we are building. If you are not satisfied just navigate to your account settings and press the Delete Button. You will "NUKE" all your data and it'll be completely destroyed. No logs, no backups.

Markethive receives over 2,211,150  unique visitors a month and currently has an Alexa Ranking of 22,374  as verified and published by Worth Of Web.com. https://www.worthofweb.com/website-value/markethive.com/

The video below is detailed on exactly what Inbound Marketing is and exactly what you get in Markethive, no obligations free for life. 
 

How Markethive operates, what it offers and what’s happening is history in the making. Markethive will be huge. We got things rolling years ahead of the others utilizing Blockchain technology, our own ecosystem and soon to have liquidity for our MHV or Markethive Coins we have been rewarded with, which accumulates all day every day, simply by using this remarkable platform.

A Complete System Within A Markethive Group – Very Powerful

.

A Complete System Within A Markethive Group – Very Powerful

What makes Markethive Groups So Unique? 

Markethive Groups are somewhat similar to Facebook groups but can also be considered a self-replication system for capture pages, customized PDFs, video exchanges, training, autoresponder options, survey sites and capture forms customized exclusively for every member of the group. This is extremely powerful. 

Integrated into Markethive Groups are the Capture Pages, Autoresponders with 98% deliverability, Blogcasting and a Blogging Platform where Blogs and Articles are easier to produce and more effective, integrated with Markethive SNAP Plugins creating incredible reach to potentially billions across the social media and blogging platforms achieving real SEO results. Also, Co-Op Marketing, and URL Rotators. This creates traction thereby yielding better results.


 

 

Let’s Start With Capture Pages…

Capture pages also known as funnel pages is an industry all to itself and there are literally 1000s of Capture page gurus and 100s of companies selling their capture page systems to you. But in all this, I see a glaring problem and that is the human nature to complicate a simple solution.

The solution is the simplicity of the system and the simplicity of the message. Markethive gives you very simple responsive capture pages. Our capture widgets gather all the data for your signups via Oauth which means they choose one of their current social networks and click on it and the signup process is completed. One-click. Done!

We also offer calendar-based capture pages, video embedded options, default videos or your selection. Our Thumbnails are Markethive’s simplest one-page capture page and our Capture pages do allow you to build complex websites, although we do not recommend you do, many of our subscribers appreciate the option.

We even build capture pages for other opportunity companies and are constantly adding new designs into the system. The entire capture page system is included in the free platform and other capture page services out there charge up to $200 per month for similar systems.

 

Co-Op Marketing

You can facilitate large scale Cooperative Advertising. Manage sophisticated marketing campaigns funded by group contributions to Ad Co-ops. Cooperative marketing by teams of people allows your group to engage in advertising at a level that far exceeds what individual team members can do on their own. There is a natural limit to what any one person can do alone, but by working together with a larger group larger advertising opportunities come into reach.

The concept of Ad Co-op's is simple. A group of people gets together to fund an advertising campaign and each contributes a certain amount to fund it. Some may have more money to invest than others. Once the funding goal is met and advertising is launched, the business it generates is then equitably distributed back to each person based on the amount they contributed.

This tool allows you to track the contributions by your group to the Advertising Co-op's you are managing as well as the advertising costs that offset them. Once you have funded a co-op and are ready to launch it, the system will automatically calculate the appropriate number of shares each member should be assigned and will apply that to the Lead Capture Page of your choice or else a Website Rotator which you can use with your own domain or websites.

Remember, this service is available to free members. Or you can share in Markethive’s million-dollar Ad Campaigns with an Entrepreneur Upgrade of $100/mth inclusive.

The URL Rotator Feature

This is Traffic flow management through website rotation. You can control the distribution of traffic, customers, and leads to multiple destinations. The Website Rotator tool allows you to configure a unique URL that will then rotate and display a list of other websites you define. You can use it to transfer traffic from one of your sites to several others. Or if you work with a team of people, the entire Group can promote a single URL which will then automatically distribute the traffic to each member's individual website.

You can add an unlimited number of websites to each rotator. There are 2 different rotation types. Circular will simply rotate through each website, one by one. Shared Ratio allows you to weight certain URLs so they receive a certain number of visits before the rotation continues. So you have a URL Rotator,  able to Customize Campaigns and designate to Groups. This is totally unlimited and can be tracked through Markethive’s Tracking Reports.

 

Tiny URL Converter – BONUS! 

Convert long URLs in to short ones, for simplified posting, emailing, tweeting, etc. The Tiny URL tool lets you convert a long URL into a nice short URL, making it much easier to use in social posts, email, as well as take up fewer characters in your tweets when using Twitter. But beyond creating a friendlier URL, the system will also track visitor statistics for you – making it the perfect tool to evaluate your promotional results, better understand what your target audience is interested in, and optimize your social, email, and other marketing campaigns.

You can even use the Tiny URL tool in combination with the Website Rotator tool to result in a tidy little URL that automatically rotates to the websites you define. Very powerful, particularly for teams working together to promote a single URL.

 

The Next Level In The Works 

As we are developing Markethive’s Super Groups that are next level, this is your Unfair Advantage in marketing.  You can use the Markethive tools, to build an exclusive secure suite of tools available to your organization only.  Customized and duplicating capture pages, an Integrated duplicated signup application plugged into your MLM company, customized and personalized PDF documents, coop ad campaigns, targeted lead distributions, live event systems, and membership activity management, also award assignments, enhanced by the monetization with the necessary API’s and all included in the interface of the landing page. 

Stay tuned for updates on the development of the different facets of the Super Group and implementation. Your team will expand with lightning speed due to the intuitive duplicative power and viral nature of this system.

 

WE ARE ALL ENTREPRENEURS 

Reid Hoffman is quoted saying 

“An entrepreneur is someone who jumps off a cliff, and builds a plane on his way down.” I get it, do you?

All the features mentioned above have huge benefits and a small but integral part of Markethive’s Ecosystem for free members. There will be so much more as we roll out our official launch. A major benefit is that it is incorporated into a transparent blockchain system, the platform is completely decentralized delivering on Markethive’s principles of privacy, transparency, and free speech.

Markethive does not spy on you; shadowban you, or terminate your account, for any reason

We are all entrepreneurs, and we know the future can have the greatest potential for those who take command of their dreams.

Markethive is Not Just About IDEAS. It’s About Making Ideas HAPPEN!

Who Will Have The “Edge” In 2019 And Beyond?

.

Who Will Have The “Edge” In 2019 And Beyond?

A lot happened in 2018, the demise of ICO’s, the bear market that didn’t quit, devastating for some, cathartic for others. All in all, it’s been a year to sort the wheat from the chaff. A year of experiences that had to happen to see the rise of companies and startups that have survived, follow-through, particularly those that have utilized blockchain technology. Greater trends are materializing and 2019 will see them come to fruition. 

We are in the Web 3.0 phase and ultimately the companies that focus on ideology, as well as product-market fit, have the edge. They require and advocate their ideology from day 1 as the final product and from there all else follows. Web 3.0 companies then demonstrate a profit function along with early product-market fit. Given the not-so-savory crypto-based startups that have tainted the new upcoming technology, along with the scandal surrounding Social Media, the masses are looking for an alternative with ethics and humanitarian nuances. The norm of allowing social platforms to use your activities, content, and conversations for their benefit is over. Your voice is yours and yours alone and you should benefit from it. 

 

Who and what is Markethive?

Markethive is recognized as the next phase having evolved from Social Networks. This is the next generation – Market Network. Built on the blockchain, it provides security, privacy to the entrepreneur, offers a fluid, collaborative culture that is a decentralized, autonomous environment which creates intellectual achievements, social habits, innovation, music, literature, technology, and commerce. This provides a social environment complete with all the inbound marketing tools of the latest technology, that champions the rise of the Entrepreneur.
 

The Ideology of Markethive

To have a predominantly free system that allows freedom of speech, total privacy and transparency, promoting education for the youth through to the seasoned entrepreneur providing support, network, tools and motivation to experience entrepreneurialism, sovereignty and success resulting in a complete ecosystem with universal income.

Markethive is creating a social network that is integrated with state of the art blockchain, cryptocurrency, and inbound marketing technology. Because Markethive is decentralized, autonomous and controlled by its entrepreneurs and holders of MARKETHIVE, its coin (MHV), will share and benefit from its success.  The company has started producing the Markethive Coin (MHV) and it’s interesting to note the total number of coins being mined is 8,888,888,888 to be exact. 

 

Markethive’s Product-Market Fit

With a history of over 20 years in Inbound Marketing, including SaaS, CRM, and CMS, Markethive does have the edge and is on track to bring proven products and services to a much needy market. It is essentially the process of attracting prospects via content creation, creating brand awareness and integrity leading to a healthy relationship with the customer. These marketing tools that have been consistently successful over the years are now integrated with blockchain technology which resolves the issues notorious with centralized platforms, making it a fairer, more autonomous experience for the entrepreneur.

The free Inbound marketing platform built on a social media interface incorporates blogging, email marketing & automation complete with cutting-edge autoresponders, social media monitoring & publishing, SEO & analytics, landing page creation, all of which the Markethive member is paid to learn and utilize these products and services. In addition, the Entrepreneur 8 point program provides lucrative opportunities to manifest multiple streams of income, thus creating Universal Income. 

 

Markethive’s Focus Is On CLV –  the “Pièce De Résistance”

Customer Lifetime Value (CLV) is the amount of value a customer contributes to your business over their lifetime. It starts with a new customer’s first purchase, contract or subscription and ends when they cease buying the product or cancel their subscription. This is called the “moment of churn.”

Markethive has changed the playing field for what is known as the Customer Lifetime Value. As their ethos is about collaboration and relationships, they have blurred the line, or merged the line, between "customer" and "connection".

Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter create "connections"
eBay, Amazon, Freelancer, create "customers"

Markethive delivers "associates" that are both connections and customers, so the value and longevity are far more valuable and more likely to build into long-term clients. Markethive has the technology that captures the information from leads that are worth a minimum of $200 each if you were to buy them. Their Loyalty Program (in development) makes the leads even more valuable.

 

Conclusion – The New Era

Blockchain technology provides new infrastructure to build the next innovative applications beyond cryptocurrencies. It'll drive profound, positive changes across business, communities, and society.  Simply put, there is privacy, transparency and any data or information stays the ownership of the user, not the company where it can be sold or shared for profit. Markethive, coupled with the blockchain has been implemented on a social media platform making it decentralized. 

It's becoming well-known the oligarchs have been in a data selling scandal and many users are up in arms about it and fed up. Facebook, Google, Twitter, and LinkedIn are all centralized and also need to make a profit for its shareholders somehow. Blockchain-based Companies like Markethive, derive their profit from the projects that are underpinning it, plus the products and services they deliver, therefore they are able to give back to its users in many forms, including remuneration for using the platform. In essence, they give the power back to the people.

Markethive Embraces Crypto Faucet Technology – Everyone Benefits

.

Markethive Embraces Crypto Faucet Technology – Everyone Benefits

History And Purpose Of Cryptocurrency Faucets

Before we get into what defines a digital or alternative currency faucet, let’s first go back to the beginning of the Bitcoin network to provide some historical background for those who aren’t familiar with Bitcoin or cryptocurrency jargon. For many, navigating the realm of Bitcoin is commonplace; however, there are still a lot of people who, although they may have heard of Bitcoin, know very little about it. It’s hard to imagine, but there are even some haven’t even heard of it.

 

The Genesis Of Bitcoin

On January 3, 2009, Satoshi Nakamoto launched the Bitcoin network version 0.1 (“Genesis Block”), the world’s first wholly decentralized cryptographic financial structure. Nakamoto “mined” the initial 50 BTC from the Genesis Block of the very first blockchain and from which all other Bitcoins have sprung.

Popular speculation is that Satoshi Nakamoto does not exist, at least not as an individual. This moniker is more than likely an anonymous “alias” or an assumed name taken by the person who actually created Bitcoin, or perhaps even stemming from a group effort, with all members wanting to remain anonymous.

It was quickly recognized by certain people that it would be wise to get some “in case this catches on”, as early users could become very rich. It was estimated that if Bitcoin would become the global reserve currency, each Bitcoin could be worth as much as $10 million – that price prediction is per EACH Bitcoin!

Fast forward to May 18, 2010, which is when it’s been said the first real monetary purchase with bitcoin took place when Laszlo Hanyecz offered 10,000 for anyone who would order him a pizza, and someone did. The value of each Bitcoin in this instance was approximately $0.0025. At today’s value of BTC, the 10,000 coins in the example would be worth over $63 million.

 

What Exactly Is A Faucet?

A bitcoin or alternative cryptocurrency faucet is either a website or an app that gives out free bitcoins, which appeals to and attracts users by way of rewarding them with Satoshis. The Satoshi is the smallest unit of the bitcoin currency recorded on the blockchain. It is a one hundred millionth of a single bitcoin (0.00000001 BTC). The unit has been named in collective homage to the original creator of Bitcoin for completing simple tasks as described. These assignments normally require little human maintenance or intervention to administer while producing results. This is a great way for people to “get their feet wet” while earning BTC, all without risk. This “try before you buy”  introduction allows new users to experiment risk-free before putting in any real money. 

Faucets provide a valuable way to popularize cryptocurrencies while attracting new users.

The first bitcoin faucet (The Bitcoin Faucet) was created in Mid-2010 by Gavin Andresen. This first faucet originally gave out 5 bitcoins per person — worth around a penny in 2010, but worth about $57,000 today (to put into perspective, back in 2014 these same 5 coins would have only been worth around $4,000).

Since then, the number of alternative cryptocurrencies or Altcoins has become available and stands at over 1600 and growing. Many have lost their luster and won’t survive or at least won’t increase in value. The few stronger ones with a purpose and underpinned by solid technology will survive and have created a faucet system. 

 

What Is The Purpose of a Faucet?

Faucets can help with orientation of those individuals who are new to cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin or to other Altcoins. The bulk of faucets provide education and instruction to new users while giving them some free coins so that they can “earn as they learn” without risk. This allows for practice with one or more “test runs” before they would feel comfortable enough to move forward, putting in their own money. Since this whole “adventure” is relatively new and overwhelming or confusing to newcomers, the faucet provides a useful way to promote the use of cryptocurrencies, while at the same time attracting new users.

Faucets are heavily trafficked sites. It is not all that challenging to get a vast amount of page views and visits per day to any website handing out what represents money for free. A faucet can also provide a tremendous way in which to promote other products, services or content, especially to the new users.

It’s one thing to create a well-liked faucet to attract new users while maintaining their existing database in what is a highly competitive market. However, without promotion of extra value to the site’s visitors and users, it’s almost impossible to even make enough to cover the expense of the coins you are giving away. The only real way in which to generate profit from a faucet is by seeing needs and/or what’s trending in the marketplace (namely online via the internet), and then offering something additional to the users that are unique and useful. This can make a site particularly attractive, setting it apart from all the rest, while creating much in the way of value for users.  If done right, this is also what can get the site to go “viral”, as news spreads very quickly via the net.

 

Conventional Wisdom: A Referral System.

Commonplace is for faucets to have some sort of referral program, where even more is “given away” and existing users referring new ones are rewarded with either a pro-rated amount of the new users' earnings from the faucet or perhaps some sort of pre-determined set amount by way of a matching bonus.

The creation of a faucet means the establishment of a payment processor or in this case a cryptocurrency wallet. A cryptocurrency wallet stores the keys (public and private) which can be used to receive or spend a cryptocurrency. Once created, the owner of the faucet then loads some bitcoin or other alternative crypto coins into their wallet. Then, payments for users are distributed to each person’s appropriate wallet, according to the site’s rates as outlined. These payments can then be transferred and converted into fiat currency creating liquidity. 

 

The main revenue source for faucets is marketing/advertising. Faucets attempt to acquire more users by giving away free coins for motivation. There are even some advertising, marketing sites or networks who will pay using bitcoins or other altcoins. In and of themselves, faucets normally provide very low-profit margins or ROI. Some faucets also make money by “mining” altcoins in the background.

Markethive Taking Faucets To Another Level [MHV]

Markethive Airdrops

Markethive is determined to take a large share of the new Market Network that is the next generation following the Social Network phenomena. That Market Network is defined as a platform that is integrated with a social network (like Facebook), SAAS tools (like GoToMeeting, ZOOM and Google Apps) commerce platforms (like eBay, Freelancers, Coinbase, Alibaba).

Markethive has created its own consumer coin, MHV, as an instrument to their Ecosystem for Entrepreneurs. So Markethive will establish their niche as the only social (Market) Network that has an infinity Airdrop and a system that rewards the users for using it with additional micropayments, otherwise known as a Faucet.

Bottom line, by joining Markethive you will get a Market Network Inbound Marketing platform worth $2500 per month for free and get “Airdropped” paid up to 500 Markethive coins [MHV] just for joining. And continue to receive these coin assets for the duration of your life within the hive. At present, MHV is valued at $0.23 on the Raisex Exchange and coinranking.com. This means your Airdrop of 500 MHV is worth $115 USD! 

Markethive Faucet System

The Markethive platform pays you micropayments of MHV, similar to faucets. After you have 3+ people subscribed into the free Markethive Network via your profile page, the faucet, micropayment system activates and from there on, all activity within the system pays you small but consistent coinage to your wallet daily. Being the entire system runs on Markethive coin, you can expect the volume demand and increased velocity of the coin to also drive coin value accordingly. This is one of the main reasons we refer to our system as being a legitimate alternative to universal income, one based on ethics and integrity, not government-mandated theft and graft. 

Notably, it is not just another payment service provider other Social Media platforms have adopted. You actually earn MHV Coins and now is a perfect time to accumulate your coins. When the Markethive Exchange is implemented into the system, you’ll be able to convert it into the currency of your choice. 

Get Paid to Learn

Markethive is truly dedicated to your education, success, and sovereignty. Not only have we have made the Inbound Marketing Platform free (Compared to Marketo that costs as much as $25k per month), we pay you up to 500 coins just for joining, pay you micropayments just for using the system after you have qualified by signing up 3 new subscribers (similar to faucet systems that pay out micro amounts of Bitcoin), we also pay you for taking our tutorials (no qualifications required, just a Markethive Wallet and each lesson you complete you receive an accolade on your profile and coin in your wallet). How cool is that?

 

Conclusion 

The Markethive coin will not be dependent upon speculative value as is the case with other cryptocurrencies and platforms, thereby creating eternal economic velocity in the entrepreneur ecosystem within Markethive. This is a fundamental difference to the other systems currently out there today.  The Markethive system has been developed to produce revenue in the traditional sense with the added benefits of the blockchain taking it to the next level.

The Faucet system is a reward system similar to Hive Rank but earns you coin for your activities. As I mentioned earlier, the first Faucet invented was the Bitcoin faucet launched by Gavin Andresen, one of the earliest Bitcoin developers, in June 2010. At that time Bitcoin was about 8 cents. It gave out 5 Bitcoins a day until 2011 when it ran out of coins. Markethive has embraced this reward system and applied it to the many marketing and communications aspects within Markethive.  The big what if, is…in 10 years will Markethive coin have a similar rise in value? I will let you ponder that ageless question.

EMAIL & AUTORESPONDERS – THE MARKETHIVE DIFFERENCE

.

EMAIL & AUTORESPONDERS – THE MARKETHIVE DIFFERENCE

After decades since the inception of Email Marketing, this technology is still one of the most widely used channels for communication today, particularly with entrepreneurs, marketers and business owners. It’s helped many startups grow into multi-billion dollar companies. Autoresponders and email advertising tools are probably the most essential parts of your business. You utilize it to follow-up with clients. To keep individuals returning to your site. To build loyalty. To create sales. 

The unfortunate side of email is spam and although spam filters do a good job of detecting junk and send it straight to the spam folder, many organizations’ legitimate emails end up in the spam folder. If your subscribers don’t see your emails, they can’t open, click or convert. The other downside is that Sprites are commonly used in some email systems which is essentially spying on the recipient.

 

DID YOU KNOW:

Markethive’s free platform is designed to give you what no one else has or ever will. This complete Inbound Marketing and Social Media Network can offer this because Markethive has developed the technology and have a greater vision into the future than most businesses do. Markethive Autoresponders are built by the original inventor of autoresponders back in 1996, Thomas Prendergast, CEO and Co-Founder of Markethive.

Co-Founder and CEO of Markethive, Thomas Prendergast states.

“We know you struggle beyond description to survive and we are here to assist you to do better than that.  This is why I took the action to make available to you for free for life. This is the Markethive platform ‘example’:”

Markethive Autoresponders will beat the competition at any price. Our emails deliver 99% of the time, “To the Inbox”. There is no need to warn your subscribers to “Check their Spam Folder”. 

This is incredible and just based on that, we just handed you an email system that Aweber ($29); Getresponse ($28); TrafficWave ($17); MailChimp ($10) and Constant Contact ($15) charged as a monthly subscription and will charge you over $50 a month or more for a system allowing only 2500+ leads or subscribers with an average inbox delivery of 70%. Markethive has no limit on how many campaigns, leads or subscribers you acquire either. It’s unlimited and totally for FREE, with a 99.97% INBOX delivery.

 

Email Delivery Rates

Email deliverability rates can really make or break an email marketing campaign. Primarily, email campaigns and autoresponders use a capture page opt-in form to collect data, being a name, email and often times a phone number. This takes time and usually a number of steps to complete. You then in some cases need to go to your email to verify it. It is well documented that the more steps in the signup form process, the more likely prospects will be lost for lack of follow-through. Email verification can reduce lead conversion up to 50%, delayed verification and delivery to spam folder reduce conversion up to 90%. 

The Markethive Difference

The Markethive email system is unique in that our capture technology uses OAuth Technology to capture the data of a potential lead or subscriber. This virtually guarantees the data is legitimate and the email is clean and not from a spam trap often acquired through web site harvesting. The actions available to build email lists in Markethive are via Markethive Capture Widgets, Markethive Capture pages, Markethive Blogs, and Markethive Profile pages. This guarantees email quality unlike anyone else and delivers members of Markethive, their subscribers and lead prospects’ email delivery “to the Inbox” of nearly 100%. 

When registering through the OAuth Technology it utilizes a driven socket connection verification process that passes, with your permission, your Name, Email, and photo from your selected account, either Gmail, Yahoo, LinkedIn or Facebook to the database, server and in Markethive’s case, the Blockchain. This verifies who you are and in no way gives Markethive access to your account or additional data. This adds a huge layer of security for you and the community and ensures email deliverability success.

 

Email Company Comparisons 

Here are 5 email and autoresponder tools with prices and deliverability percentages. Although rates can fluctuate over time, there does, however, seem to be some consistency between those that perform the best, and those that perform the worst. 

Aweber

Aweber has a free 1 month trial period then priced as shown below. Aweber doesn’t really allow you to add leads from offline sources. Online lists are captured using online opt-in forms requiring a name and email address. 

Pricing: Starting from $19/mth for 500 subscribers up to $149/mth for 25,000. Get a quote if over 25,000 subscribers are required.

Email Deliverability: Main Inbox 71.5% Spam 18.6% Tabs 8.2% Missing 1.7%

MailChimp

MailChimp has a “forever free” plan that allows you to create a list on MailChimp for free as long as your list is under 500 users. Although MailChimp offers a free trial, their autoresponder feature is only available in paid accounts and lists are built through single or double opt-in forms. 

Pricing: It has different pricing plans for Growing Businesses, Entrepreneurs and High volume senders. Grow Membership from $10/mth – Pro Membership starting at $199/mth.

Pricing: Free when you subscribe to Markethive. There are no limitations on the amount or size of your list of subscribers and no upcharges. 100 addresses or 1 million addresses, you will experience nearly 100% delivery for no costs, for free.

Email Deliverability: Main Inbox  99.97% Spam 0.0% Tabs 0.0%  Missing 0.03%  

Markethive AutoResponders Explained

 

Conclusion 

Markethive embraces OAuth and Blockchain technology as it keeps all your data and hard work under your control. It cannot be deleted by anyone else but you. This process also prevents 3rd parties from tracking you on our secure distributed security data system.   So when registering and utilizing the complete marketing system within Markethive to build your business, including the autoresponder system (CRM) your security and autonomy is our highest priority. Gone from our system is the aged old and nonsecure process of entering fields with your name, email, and phone, etc, coupled with a verification email and validation link. 

The advent of the blockchain adds several new twists and may serve to be the disruption that has been overdue for marketers and advertisers that are looking to take their targeted campaigns to the next level. We are in for a ride over the next couple of years as technologies like blockchain slip into every facet of our lives. It’s not the strongest who survive or smartest, but the most adaptable.

At the moment there are some Social Networks already there where you can hook them up by clicking on each one and following the prompts. That will ensure your account at Markethive is linked to your other Social Media accounts. You will then be able to utilize the features explained below…

 

Now let’s delve into the workings of Markethive’s Blogging System, the features and benefits of Blogcasting…

What Is Blogcasting

If you were to do a Google search on the word Blogcasting, you would find this definition: 

“A blogcast is simply the combination of a blog and podcast into a single Web site. A blog is a weblog or journal, that is available on the Internet. A podcast is an audio or video file that you share with visitors or subscribers to your site.”

A New Definition

Markethive now has this terminology to mean something very powerful.“Blogcasting” is a play on the word “Broadcasting”, which is the term used to simultaneously transmit the same message to multiple recipients, commonly done through an email system. Blogcasting is the reach that goes beyond this technology. It gives you the ability for an unlimited amount of people to subscribe to your blog through all social media and blogging platforms which could literally have millions of followers notified of your blog.

In the traditional sense of broadcasting, usually, only the people who physically subscribe to your blog or newsletter are notified of your updates via email. With this blogcasting system, all your social networks are informed of your blog as and when you publish them. This means the potential reach is into the millions. 

For example, If I subscribe to your blog and I have 20,000 followers across all my social media accounts, and you have 15,000 subscribers each with a similar following, your blogs have now been potentially seen by around 300,000,000 people which by enlarge are not directly subscribed to you. This is called a “reach” and extremely powerful. 

Blogging is not new, and it’s proven to be the best way to market, nurture relationships and brand yourself as an expert in your field building trust which in turn increases followers, client base and sales. It is also known as Content Marketing. Markethive with their proprietary Blogcasting system has certainly made it exponentially more powerful.  They have certainly added fun, understanding, reach, groups, daily workshops, understanding and power to the process.

Markethive has not only successfully combined all the technical and tactical aspects and requirements into one system, but have also overcome the obstacles to make blogging a group process, combined with motivated mentors to help the newbie easily immerse and embrace the process.

Word Press has been around for years and known to be the world leader in Blogging platforms. Markethive recognizes this and has significantly taken Word Press serious and made it exponentially better. This blog’s focus is to help you understand the paradigm dynamic shift Markethive has brought to marketing, blogging and the individual within the hive.

 

The Blog Cloud 

 

The following video attempts to reveal and illustrate how the whole social blogging platform in Markethive changes the entire Internet field of engagement.

The Reach Blog Cloud by Markethive

Markethive’s Inbound Marketing platform delivers a blogging system built for the beginner, sophisticated for the intermediate and an extremely powerful platform that advanced professional bloggers will appreciate. The system is designed for the easy development of a complete blog system, yet advanced and easily set up to be the engine that powers your WordPress blogs. 

The blogs are Google friendly. When your blogs are shared and consequently clicked on, they move up in the search rankings. If you’re providing quality content, your readers will want others to know.

Content Curation: What Is It? What Are The Benefits?

Content Curation: What Is It? What Are The Benefits? 

What is Content Curation?

Content curation is a term that has been used in various contexts. Most marketers are familiar with the practice of sharing other people’s content on social networks, what we’ll refer to as social content curation. Content curation actually covers much more than just social sharing and can help your content marketing results in so many other ways. 

Content Marketing is known by any smart marketer to be the pinnacle of any and all marketing strategies. Content is the foundation of your lead generation efforts – if it inspires, educates, and gives answers to your visitors’ questions. Only then it will convert. In other words, your content must resonate with your audience to be effective. 

What’s more, content curation can assist the different departments of your company to share knowledge or reinforce training programs. If you’re just getting started with Content Marketing, then you may find this blog interesting.

 

A Definition Of Content Curation

Beth Kanter, probably the most knowledgeable influencer in curated content, explains what content curation means: 

“Content curation is the process of sorting through the vast amounts of content on the web and presenting it in a meaningful and organized way around a specific theme. The work involves sifting, sorting, arranging, and publishing information. A content curator cherry picks the best content that is important and relevant to share with its community.”

 

What Is The Curator’s Role? 

Let’s take a good look at the details in 3 steps; 

1. Select

As there is a colossal, ever-increasing amount of data on the web, the curator needs to emphasize the best already existing content on a specific topic. Monitoring the best sources in any given industry and be on the lookout for new ones is first and foremost.

Obviously, the curator would need to evaluate the quality of the source and be able to distinguish the good pieces from the bad ones. This will avoid sharing content of poor quality (or false) and set you apart from the surrounding noise that already exists on the internet. Choosing good quality content is not only the first step of the process, but it’s the cornerstone of content curation as well.  There’s no good curation without good content.

2. Edit & Enrich

To make the distinction between a wise content curator from a simple user who shares content on social media, the difference is clear, expertise. As the curator, you are seen as an expert in your field. You need to add value, provide context to the piece of content you have selected. At this stage, it’s not just about hitting publish, it’s also about editing the post or blog. Beyond simple formatting, bringing context to your audience adds value and helps establish yourself as a thought leader and show your expertise.

3. Share

If you as the curator take the time to select and enrich a piece of content, the next step is to share it to meet your audience. Curation is usually intended for a targeted audience, but it could be done for larger audiences, publicly.  When your blogs are shared and consequently clicked on, they move up in the search rankings. If you’re providing quality content, your readers will want others to know. Of course, the only way to make sure your blogs contribute to your website’s popularity is to value add to your content, provide answers for visitors, and then share your blogs to millions using the Markethve Blogcasting feature.

Notably, content curation is not necessarily public. It can be used for sharing knowledge internally. Companies want to leverage their employees’ knowledge and need them store, share, categorize and disseminate it to the largest possible number. Curation is a good answer to that. The main objective is that everyone can carry on with the same amount of information and is able to make the right decisions. 

Also with Markethive’s ability (feature) to create unlimited Groups each with a different cocktail of content curated, aggregated or from multiple Group memberships, the options to produce meaningful unique content for unlimited WordPress blogs controlled from within Markethive is unlimited. Groups are excellent platforms for blogging. Simply set up a Curating Group for yourself and Swipe the blogs in Markethive as a collection of content you may want to use in your publications

 

The Benefits Of Content Curation

If curating content means finding the most relevant content in your space and presenting it to your audience, then the main objective – and benefit – should be to show that you are knowledgeable about your domain by relating the most useful information available to your audience. Yet, there are many more benefits that attract marketers to integrate curated content into their content marketing strategy. Some of these benefits are:

  • Keeping a social media presence: Content curation allows to share great content on social media regularly.

  • Feeding your website: many marketers, and especially marketers who don’t have time to create content to feed their website. Using content curation and integrate it into their website is an easy way to do so.

  • Scaling your content production: If you find yourself buried in marketing tasks and don’t have enough time to write a complete blog article every week, content curation allows you to publish more content easily.

  • Be credible: With content curation, you will show that you are not the only one to give a certain argument.

  • Establish thought leadership: Sharing the gems in your domain will help you establish as a thought leader.

  • Building brand awareness: As you can work your own online reputation with content curation, you can also build your brand awareness;

  • Sending love to influencers in your space and interact with the actors in your space: By curating content from influencers and other actors in your industry, you will be identified by them and they will be glad to be quoted.

  • Increasing your traffic from search: Sharing fresh, regular and quality content on your website will help you get better SEO rankings for your content and get more traffic from search.

  • Creating a space for efficient social selling activities. Social selling is all about using social media to generate relationships, leads, and eventually, sales. The people who do social selling – entrepreneurs and salespeople – are connectors. They aren’t necessarily content creators or writers, and they would find it nearly impossible to keep up with the demands of a sale job as well as write a blog post everyday. 

Content curation is not only helpful for marketing, but it will also be useful in market intelligence too:

  • Sharing knowledge with your colleagues in order to get better collectively.

  • Monitoring what is being said about your industry: It keeps you posted on what is being published in your space by experts, magazines, competitors, etc. You know what your audience likes to read (given the number of shares of the articles) and you can curate accordingly to answer questions your audience is asking.

 

Formats

After you have found the articles you think would be interesting for your audience, there are four different – and complementary – ways you can curate them. Most marketers already practice social content curation, i.e. sharing other people’s content on social networks, but this is not the only nor the most efficient way curated content can be used to reach marketing objectives.

1. Social Content Curation

When you find a good article on the web and you share it on your company profile (with or without a little note saying ‘great piece’ or ‘a new take on’, etc.), you’re doing social content curation. Social curation is the most spread out form of curation you can find. It is easy to do, it allows you to keep a social media presence even if you don’t have time to write original content, and it helps you get noticed by the other actors in your space (because you’re sharing their content).

2. Curated Blog Posts

A curated blog post is an article on your blog that starts with a quote and a link to another piece of content. You’re using an existing piece as your introduction, and then you add your own commentary/insight to it, making it your own.

3. Curated Content Groups In Markethive

A curated content group is a place where you aggregate your own content and curated content to provide easy navigation and presentation of content with your added insights to introduce it. A curated content group is a great way to show your entire expertise and thought leadership on any given topic.

4. Curated Email Newsletters 

A curated email newsletter provides a useful and engaging roundup on a given topic by combining your own original content and curated posts. This can be done with the Email Autoresponder feature in Markethive. Just one of the many features available to you as a free member.

 

How To Curate The Right Way?

To curate content in an effective way you should:

  • Select carefully the piece of content you want to curate. It must be fresh and of good quality. No need to share every single piece everybody shares. You have to know why you curate it.

  • Be careful with the layout. Whatever media, it’s easier to read when well-formatted. Titles should be catchy, images have to be polished and the subject has to be clearly identified.

  • Systematically quote the source, it’s a golden rule. The author must be mentioned and a link must go to the original article.

  • A short quote yes, a copy/paste no! Don’t copy the article and make sure to mention the author – those two rules go hand in hand! It’s important not to make another piece of content yours – for ethical reasons obviously, but also for SEO purposes (Google blames severely duplicate content).

  • Broadcast it at the right place. Be logical when it comes to your audience and your objectives.

 

Copyright Directive 

With recent legislation enacted in March 2019, namely Article 11 (link tax) and Article 13 This law is designed to stop users uploading copyrighted content by forcing platforms to build massive filters or face huge lawsuits and fines.  Markethive simply gives you your own domain for all your content, videos and images to originate from.
