What’s the Big Deal About Content Curation?I’ve been a fan of content curation for a long time. Why?

Because content curation:

  1. I’m very interested in content curation and have tried doing it a couple times on my own blog. I think curating is a great content marketing strategy. But the point is to do it right: finding, organizing, commenting and sharing various, relevant resources in a proper way.

    This is a great demonstration itself about how content curation works. Thanks for finding and organizing all these great posts on content curation. I’ll definitely check them out and learn more about it!

  2. Matt,

    Really good post on curation and most likely we will be purchasing your curation training. I’ve followed your site for a while and you provide spot on advice (always gets me to click from feedly).

    I also wanted to share with you a WordPress curation platform we built called Curation Traffic. I’d wonder what your thoughts would be about it? While I think curation is good– I think there is one glaring problem which is typically your curating on someone else’s platform… that’s ultimately why we built something that we could control and drive traffic too. You can see an example of it in action at http://www.youbrandinc.com/marketing-news

    That’s all really, keep up the great stuff and this is a really good overview and links on curation, thanks for that.
