An Overview Of Curator Content and Creative Potential
By Tom Seest
At WebsiteBloggers, we help website bloggers develop strategies to create content, traffic, and revenue from website blogs based on our experiences and experimentation.
As curators or creative designers, combining other people’s work with yours is an integral part of creativity. Curations are an effective way to broaden a brand’s artistic scope while infusing it with fresh perspectives from new sources and encouraging their followers.
Establishing trust with your audience is also an invaluable way to foster good relations and mold your creative output.

Avalara, a tax software company, recently compiled a comprehensive list of state sales tax laws to assist individuals in understanding how these regulations impact them. State sales tax laws vary significantly, so it is vitally important that they know all applicable rules before setting up shop online or beginning any type of business venture.
States vary considerably in how they apply sales taxes, from general guidelines that all businesses must collect and report them to more stringent measures requiring certain out-of-state retailers to pay local sales tax. Many states also offer exemptions in certain circumstances where no tax applies on goods or services purchased.
Exemptions are granted both based on usage and entity type, so when purchasing items or services intended to be used specifically in certain industries or for particular purposes (for instance, manufacturing processes, research & development projects, or tile production), sales tax is exempted. Some examples include exemptions like those related to tile production.
Clothing and footwear priced below certain thresholds also enjoy exemption from sales tax; in New York, for instance, any pair priced under $110 is exempt from 4% state sales tax; it is still important to check local government rules prior to making your purchase decision.
Kansas currently levies a 6.5% state sales tax rate, with local governments being allowed to impose an additional 1.15% sales tax rate. Ohio levies 5.75% sales taxes as well, while charging counties and transit authorities an additional 0.25-1.5% surcharge.
Wirecutter, owned by The New York Times Company and popular among shopping enthusiasts, attracts an engaged following that looks to them for advice on products they might buy online at stores such as Amazon – with Wirecutter taking a percentage cut when an actual purchase takes place.
Wirecutter has made great strides over the last year in staff growth and expansion into new product categories like children and babies, pets, outdoors, health tech, business software for small offices, travel, etc. That has allowed it to generate 50% higher sales compared to one year earlier, according to Bloomberg reports.
The Wirecutter offers a deals page that consistently makes its list of five most-visited pages on its site, according to senior editor David Burakowski. Updated daily with the best online deals, this page saves visitors time while significantly impacting purchasing decisions.
New York Times acquired Wirecutter in October 2016, adding an editorial staff of almost 60 editors who helped grow its deals page into an ever-popular feature that draws visitors month in and month out. However, speed was an issue: editors needed to manually select products from the existing database before manually creating deal entries associated with those products and writing up deal entries – this process took approximately one minute per product!
Wirecutter developers developed an improved CMS that will enable its edit staffers to post deals more quickly this holiday season than before, which should allow for greater sharing.
Apex Legends’ community is captivating to witness and worthy of observation both for its own merits and as an indicator of battle royale in general. Created by EA and Respawn Entertainment, Apex Legends borrows elements of Fortnite’s bold cartoonish tone as well as PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ stark realism to attract an audience not limited by either Fortnite’s immense player base or hardcore PUBG fans alone.
Apex Legends stands out from its competition as a first-person shooter by demanding players master its core skill sets – both character abilities and teamwork – as well as understand the game’s progression system, something few other games in its genre offer. This approach to gameplay has helped broaden its appeal and keep players engaged for an unforgettable gaming experience.
Legends are an essential aspect of gameplay, enabling players to unlock unique characters with individual skill sets that they can then use to develop team-based strategies that help win matches.
Players can customize their Legend in various ways, using Legend Tokens earned at level up or cosmetic items such as skins or Quips that can be shared over the battlefield. There is also a ranked league that allows them to compete against others using Legends from similar classes.
Apex Legends is a live service game from EA, meaning it constantly adds and adjusts content and maps as well as altering competitive meta. These changes keep churned players engaged.
Funko stands out in today’s content marketing landscape by continuously publishing fresh, engaging material to keep its target audience engaged. They use various tools like analytics data, customer feedback, and sales team representatives in order to select products and deals with which their audience would find value online.
Funko boasts a flourishing secondary market and employs numerous creative tactics to engage its community, from social media posts and in-store promotions to email newsletters to interactive apps that enable consumers to personalize collectible figurines they own before buying them instantly. Their latest move was creating the Funko Shop app, which allows consumers to customize collectible figurines before purchasing them immediately; moreover, this interactive and gamified platform lets loyal customers create custom avatars as rewards of loyalty, such as free shipping or even special gifts from them!
There may not be as many employees at their firm as at competitors, but you can be assured they’re doing all that’s necessary – and do it well. They have unveiled one of the most innovative mobile platforms ever developed by an American company and strive to make fun as easy as possible for their customers.
In an age where many direct-to-consumer brands spend most of their budgets on traditional advertising, LUSH Handmade Cosmetics stands out by using an in-house content marketing strategy to drive brand recognition, sales, and engagement with its audience. The “ethical” beauty brand uses storytelling across its online presence and marketing strategy as a whole to communicate its core values, build an engaged following, and ultimately increase sales.
At LUSH, a large part of their content comes from user-generated content (UGC) created by their fans – providing a powerful form of social media outreach that allows beauty shoppers to share their own experiences with your products and service with a global audience.
The use of hashtags and UGC is an invaluable way for beauty brands to build communities of like-minded people willing to help spread awareness of your brand. Furthermore, using UGC allows beauty brands to showcase the talents of their best curators while producing high-quality content that aligns with their mission statement.
Lush’s content strategy places great importance on its social responsibility and activism efforts, such as its partnership with organizations like Death Penalty Focus to campaign for the abolition of capital punishment in the US and uses synthetic micas that are mined without the involvement of child labor.
Employees play a vital role in the success of marketing campaigns at any business. Employees often become immersed in the culture of the brand they represent and display great pride for the products they work on, leading to higher customer satisfaction rates.
LUSH’s innovative marketing strategy has allowed them to thrive despite highly competitive and rapidly shifting markets and has established them as one of the biggest direct-to-consumer brands today. They do this through strong ethical values, an outstanding team, and an innovative content plan that drives word-of-mouth marketing and customer retention.
