  1. thank you for this enlightening article! my spouse is a marketer and she constantly preaches about the benefits of a giving culture and to give without worry that you gave too much! i’ll have to share this article with her 😀

  2. yes! i literally blogged yesterday about the same topic. going a little mushy “like nicholas sparks wrote it.” talking about “loving” your audience, because, essentially, i think that’s how you should approach it. i love how you’ve put it here. 1) don’t be cautious 2) curate for the benefit of your readers 3) be generous. love it.

  3. having this mindset when creating content will help people see more value in what you’re providing. if it’s clear that you care about their best interests and are looking to help with what you’re giving out, then the engagement and results will speak for themselves. thanks for sharing beth!

  4. hey beth,

    giving is what makes a content marketer who is ready to accomplish his/her goal.

    it’s all about how you manage to keep your readers engage. forums can be the places where you can spend some time.

    adopting a policy of generosity is a must-have attribute.

    thanks for sharing with us.

  5. hey, beth. thanks for this great article!

    i am always trying to grow my audience and lately i have been doing my sharing with the idea of giving in mind. for instance, while i used to post mostly just my own content, i am now posting/retweeting/promoting much more content that belongs to others.

    i have found that when i do this that i start to really see my audience numbers shoot upward and when i do end up posting some of my own content i usually get a far better response to it.

    the idea that you posted about content curation actually interests me a lot. i’m going to have to start working on that one!

    thanks again 🙂

  6. give away the best you’ve got. start with a mindset to serve and trust that it’ll come back to you in spades. great post, thanks beth. bernadette jiwa is another great writer who talks about being a “giver” rather than a “taker”.

  7. hi beth – thanks for the valuable post.

    content curation is the sure thing i need to focus on and i’ll work on it. at the end of your article i liked this line “so ask questions. pay attention. stay open. and keep giving, over and over and over again”.

    the last line says it all!

    thanks!

  8. hey beth

    great post indeed dear !

    having giving mindset is the key when it comes to content. we should always start thinking that way and there is no chance that we will fail, as far as i think.

    you have explained it well. keep up the good work.

    cheers 🙂

  9. “tom, this is trish. trish, this is tom.” tom needed a content management firm to help him create and grow his internet presence. trish owns a content management firm. tom was happy because he got what he needed. trish was happy because she got a new customer. i was happy because i’d helped two people. end of story.

    six months later, they wrote an ebook about tom’s business. they needed an editor. tom remembered that an editor (me) introduced them. four years later, trish is still my biggest client. all because i gave generously. (oh, and because my editing rocks, of course. at some point you do have to deliver on your promise.)
