Content curation is one of the most important activities when you are trying to build a solid social media marketing strategy. Although the actual process of curating content for your social media pages can be tedious, it is still a vital activity that needs to be completed in order to boost your social media presence.

What if we told you that engaging and share-worthy content is just a click away? Most of you have already used the DrumUp app to find, share and schedule content, and have loved it. Because we love “wow”ing our users, we decided to raise the bar even higher and have launched a plugin for Chrome that can be used for content discovery and curation as well as for carrying out research related activities.

Content curation with DrumUp plugin
After installing the DrumUp Chrome plugin, you will be able to see a small icon in the top right corner of your Chrome browser. The plugin understands the article you might be browsing and accordingly shows you up to 10 relevant recommendations at one time. To see story recommendations, click on the icon and scroll for stories that you would like to share on your Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter pages using DrumUp.

This plugin helps you discover content that is relevant and helps you curate content without having to carry out any additional searches on search engines.

Research content using DrumUp plugin
The DrumUp plugin is also extremely helpful when you are researching content for a particular post or article that you may be writing. It makes the process of researching much simpler. If you are writing an article related to content marketing and require more material to refer to, the plug-in offers several recommendations that can be used to create your article.

Suggestions coming from the DrumUp plugin are mainly from high authority websites – which means you can browse through content that is high quality and reliable. The content suggestions from DrumUp make it an extremely useful alternative to Swayy.

Schedule and share content on your social media pages
Loved an article? Go ahead and share it! With the DrumUp plugin, you can share what you read on your Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn pages without having to open up another tab. All you have to do it click on the DrumUp icon and click Share. If you are already a user on DrumUp, you will be directed to a page where you can choose which networks you would like to share the content on. If you are a new user, you will be taken to a page where you can sign in using either your Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn account.

DrumUp Plug-in Share

Once you have decided which networks you would like to share the content to, you can choose a time and day when you would like the post to be published. This works especially well if you don’t want to share something right away, but would rather have it published at a later time and day.

Using the DrumUp app in conjunction with the plugin can optimize your content curation process and can help you share and schedule content easily within the same browser without having to open any new tabs or windows. Give the plugin a shot, and tell us what you think in the comments below.
