Creating vs. curating. If you work in marketing, or maybe even if you don't, I'm sure you've been a witness to this content debate at one point or another. There are numerous arguments for each side, and ultimately, both are included in any successful content strategy.
The ideal mix between content curation and original content creation is a debate that I often find myself having with my colleagues and industry peers. So, in the spirit of Super Bowl XLVIII this weekend, I decided to ask the experts what they thought in a matchup that I've officially dubbed Content Super Bowl I. Continue reading →
Somehow curation won with the points I gave (never trust me with points in regards to any sport!) LOL
