According to a recent study from HiveFire, over half (56 percent) of B2B marketers now utilize content curation. More importantly,  
HiveFire found that the exercise of editorial judgment is directly related to user volume.

Curators that approve less than 50 percent of articles saw nearly twice as much growth in email newsletters. Additionally, sites updated with new content daily drive greater click-thru activity, on average 18 percent more.

On average, approximately 87 percent of curated content are third-party articles and 13 percent are original content.
