6 Ways to Integrate Great Content Curation into Your Marketing Mix Today

Image
If you're in advertising or marketing, you might have heard the term "Content Curation" thrown about quite a bit over the last year or so.

For those afraid to ask, content curation is the continual process of finding, reading, contextualizing and sharing of online content for a specific audience. For most marketing professionals, this will include clients (current and potential), colleagues, peers, vendors and those who are interested in the field. For those of us who share links on our Facebook or LinkedIn profiles, retweeting insights via Twitter or pinning images on Pinterest, we are already engaged in content curation. In this case, our friends and associates are our audience, and by sharing content that we believe would resonate and add value to the conversation, in many ways we are defining aspects of our personal brand to them.

What's good for the goose is good for the gander. Over the past few years, savvy marketers have learned to integrate content curation as…

Fox 26 takes in-depth look inside Fire Station No. 6

Image
The day began early for Laura Hughey and Ashley Hernandez, who opened the Axiom doors before 6 a.m. to receive the KRIV-TV Fox 26 van driven by photographer Stu Brown, with reporter Ruben Dominguez and intern Anna Wiernicki in a separate vehicle on Wednesday.



The TV crew took about an hour to set up the camera and lighting for the live shots scheduled for the 8-9 a.m. and the 9-10 a.m. programming hours of the Fox 26 Morning News. Axiom President Tom Hair arrived about an hour later, at 7 a.m., ready to interview.







Dominguez and two other Fox 26 media members visited the station two days earlier for a tour and shot footage for a recorded segment that aired during Wednesday's live interviews, which took place at 8:20 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. The first interview was shot in the Axiom lobby, where Tom Hair discussed Axiom's "bling" wall of awards and the artifacts on loan from the Houston Fire Museum. He noted that Fire Station No. 6 (est. 1903) was built during the time the Wri…

Axiom HQ lauded by Houston Business Journal

The restoration of Fire Station No. 6 continues to be in the spotlight as longtime preservation writer Betty Chapman profiled Axiom's home base for the Houston Business Journal's June 29-July 5 issue.

During Ms. Chapman's tour of the building, she was impressed with the attention of detail that went into the restoration, from the replacement and matching of 100-year-old Cedar Bayou bricks and pinewood flooring, to the execution of a modern office layout within the station's original space and annex. Her article focused on the historical significance of the building, which opened in 1903 as home to Houston firefighters until 1931.

The HBJ article also became another marker in highlighting a building that resonates throughout the city. "Axiom's pride in Houston's past and success in reclaiming that past for a 21st century application are clearly displayed today at 1702 Washington Ave.," Ms. Chapman wrote.


"We are proud to successfully repurpose the bu…

Fire Station No. 6 gaining notice nationwide

Image
Word about Axiom's headquarters at the historic Fire Station No. 6 near downtown Houston has spread well beyond city limits.

Since moving into the station in late February, Axiom has been profiled by local websites CultureMap, Preservation Houston, Ultimate Montrose and Houston Press, as well as the Houston affiliates of NPR (KUHF 88.7) and ABC (KTRK-TV Ch. 13).


On the print side, the Houston Chronicle and Houston Business Journal newspapers also have covered the restored station, hailing it as a shining example of saving a historically significant structure and repurposing it for 21st century use.

And the buzz goes on.

The National Trust for Historic Preservation, which is based in Washington, D.C., published an online entry about Fire Station No. 6 on its blog site, preservationnation.org. The entry includes two slideshows and praises the building as "a beacon for historic adaptation done right."

Even Hollywood has an eye on Fire Station No. 6. A Houston-based location scou…
