The 3-S Plan for Content Curation

Need to find content for your social channels?

You’re in luck. We just published an article on Social Media Today highlighting the best places to find content.

Check it out here:


But what about after you’ve found articles and videos to share? What are the next steps?

At Cave, we’ve put together a simple 3 step process we’re dubbing 3-S Plan. It’s pretty simple:

  1. See
  2. Save
  3. Schedule

Let’s break it down step by step.

1. See Content

Discover content using one of the 9 major tools, apps, and websites we highlight in the previously mentioned Social Media Today article. All 9 tools are listed with detailed commentary included, but for quick reference here’s a refresher of the list:

  1. Nuzzel
  2. StumbleUpon
  3. Reddit
  4. Digg
  5. Feedly
  6. Daily by Buffer
  7. Quora
  8. Google Alerts
  9. Pocket


2. Save Content

After you’ve found some great content to share, we highly recommend you use Pocket to save your content. Pocket has integrations for nearly every website and app mentioned above, along with a great Chrome extension you can use throughout the day. As you come across content, just save it to Pocket – add tags to your saved articles organized and worry about scheduling later. This will save you a ton of time overall.


3. Schedule/Share Content

Now that all of your content is saved in one place, it’s time to schedule or share it immediately. If you’re going to share it immediately – great – you can do that straight from Pocket. If you’re going to be scheduling your content, Pocket has a built-in Buffer integration that allows you to send articles straight into Buffer. Browse through your articles within Pocket, and be sure you’ve read at least an overview of each article to make sure it falls within your company/brand voice. After you’ve determined what you want to share, schedule your content in one sitting to save time and keep organized. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3. See, save, and share.
