The greatest benefit of curation that I see is to help distill signal from noise and become a trusted an authoritative resource in your field. If you’re the source of what’s truly important and useful, you can stand out even in crowded markets and earn a significant audience.
Author Global Content Marketing
The biggest benefit of content curation is to stretch your marketing budget so that you don’t need to create all content from scratch. Select content intelligently and carefully so that they will read your curated content with a sense of wonder such as ‘Wow, that’s interesting…’ or ‘Oh, I didn’t know that…’.

By understanding your audience, curating relevant content allows you to host a broader range of discussions and act as a hub of information broader than what you could create on your own.
