Susanna Gebauer of The Social Ms recently wrote a post describing the 10 things that content curation can do for marketing. 4 of them include:
- Position you as an informed and helpful person
- Help you build relationships
- Save time (and money)
- Help you grow traffic
The benefit probably least known is “help you build relationships”. Curating other people’s content, in an ethical manner of course, helps you interact with your company’s ecosystem. It is a great way to execute influencer marketing while simultaneously providing value to your audience.
