what is content curation

Wondering what is Content Curation and how you could make it a part of your content marketing strategy?

There was a lot of feedback that I got about the last episode and some of readers even asked me to do a series on content curation. The most questions were around understanding what is content curation and what are the different types of content curation that you can use as a part of your content marketing strategy.

Welcome to episode 46 of the DKSpeaks Podcast. Continuing on from where we left in the last episode where we discussed about the different tools that we use in our curation, in this episode we will discuss in detail about what is content curation and what are the different types of content curation that you can use in your content marketing.

What is Content Curation & Types of Content Curation

Let me first put it the way Wikipedia explains it –

Content curation is the process of gathering information relevant to a particular topic or area of interest. Services or people that implement content curation are called curators. Curation services can be used by businesses as well as end users.

Two points are relevant in this definition.

  • Process of gathering information
  • Relevant to a particular topic

So, content curation is all about aggregating content and that too, about specific topics.

Content Curation was a phenomenon that always existed. If you are a fan of art and have visited art galleries, then you would be able to connect with this term.

Art galleries curate art forms from different artists and presents them at one place for you.

The benefit – You get to see best art forms, hand picked for you, all at one place.

And this is the exact same benefit that your readers get, when they read your curated blog posts.

People prefer curated posts because they can avoid wasting time on the internet looking for good content. Instead they would be able to find all of it at one place, on your blog.

We discuss this and a lot more in this episode of the show.

Here are some of the things that we would be discussing in this episode.

  • What is content curation in detail
  • What are the different types of content curation
  • How to make your Content Curation even more effective
  • How to make sure that your content curation stands out in the crowd

What form of content curation you would like to choose will entirely depend upon your content marketing strategy.
