We all know the importance of finding and sharing remarkable online content to help feed our social profiles but it can often be a struggle to find this content on a consistent basis. Welcome to the world of content curation! Sure, if you follow the right collection of people on Twitter, for example, you'll find this can be a helpful content source. But, if you're looking to consistently be a source of content that others can't help but share, here's a collection of 6 must follow sources for your content curation needs.
1. Business2Community (B2C)
Our team here at Weidert Group is a great supporter of B2C and the community of writers they've assembled. We're honored to be a part of this growing community and find it to be one of the top sources for our personal and company content curation needs for a variety of marketing-related topics.
