Content Marketing 101 Part 3: Curating Others Content To Leverage Authority




Its Gary O’Toole here and I am back with part 3 of our epic content marketing 101 series! In part 1 we looked at what content marketing is and why you should do it, in part 2 we looked at the different types of content and how they can be used effectively within a content marketing campaign.

In today’s post we are going to look at curating other peoples content to leverage authority and create engagement with very little effort on our part.

Definition of Curate:

 

  • Curate something to select, organize and look after the objects or works of art in a museum or an art gallery, etc.He curated the acclaimed ‘Africa’ exhibition at the museum last year.
  • Curate something (especially on the Internet) to collect, select and present information or items such as pictures, video, music, etc. For people to use or enjoy, using your professional or expert knowledge I would definitely read a blog that was all curated content.
  • A UK rock band are curating the BBC ‘s digital music station for a week.

Some content marketers and social media thought leaders suggest that we should use a ratio of 80/20 when it comes to sharing content 80% curated content and 20% original content that links back to our own content hub. I personally think you should take statements like this with a pinch of salt as there is no one size fits all strategy that is suitable for every product, service or business.
