The Secret to Successful Curation: Distribution

Many marketers have realized that the secret to a successful content marketing strategy is a good mix of created and curated content. In a recent Curata study, we found that best-in-class marketers provide 65% created content, 25% curated content and 10% syndicated content. Heidi Cohen offers up three tips to ensure that the content you curate gets the maximum amount of exposure through distribution. She even says that you should spend 80% of your time distributing content. One of her tips? Publish on a regular schedule.
