Content Curation Look Book 2013 from Curata Provides Curation Inspiration for Organizations Seeking to Enhance Marketing Programs

Look Book Explores Real Companies Leveraging the Power of Content Marketing

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- B2B marketers are evolving the way they target their audiences, and content marketing is quickly taking center stage. In fact, a recent B2B Marketing Survey from Curata, Inc. found that 87 percent of the 450 surveyed marketing professionals are using content marketing to drive their overall goals. In the 'Content Curation Look Book 2013' released today, Curata explores real-world examples of organizations successfully using one form of content marketing: content curation. Content curation, or the act of finding, organizing and sharing online content, is enabling busy marketers to leverage relevant, impactful content on the Web and to meet their marketing needs and feed their marketing channels.

The Oregon Wine Board (OWB), a semi-independent state agency that promotes Oregon's $3 billion wine industry, uses Curata to aggregate and curate news and information about the Oregon wine industry. OWB has developed a robust daily newsletter for wine consumers and its membership. OWB has become the trusted source of information about Oregon wine, according to Charles Humble, OWB's director of communications. "Since launching our Oregon Wine Newsroom, we are regularly syndicated by Google as a trusted news source. We have a small staff and this is something we could never have accomplished without Curata. Our members are thrilled with the results."

"As creating videos or publishing a blog become easier and easier – there really are no barriers to sharing content online anymore," according to Rohit Bhargava, Founder, Influential Marketing Group. "Yet all this content is creating a predictable problem: most of it is mediocre. If there's anything our one-button economy proves, it's that creating high-quality content worth reading, watching or sharing is harder than it seems. Some of the smartest and most forward-thinking brands today are turning to curation as a way to add value for customers by collecting the best and most useful content on a particular topic."

Allsalesforce.com provides news and information around the Web that relates to popular lead management software, Salesforce. According to Kevin Phelan, Managing Director of Allsalesforce.com, "Our sole purpose is to become the site-of-record for the Salesforce community." Through the use of curated content, the site is able to identify the best content and populate a well-organized website in order for readers to easily find and digest the information of interest.

"Curation is growing in popularity, and while we're pleased to see the industry develop and mature, education is still required for organizations to truly take advantage of the massive amount of available content," said Pawan Deshpande, Curata founder and CEO. "Our Content Curation Look Book pulls together some of the best examples of content curation around the Web, and is a great resource for companies of all industries looking to become thought leaders in a particular space. Curation is a strategic way to help B2B marketers cut through the clutter of online content and discover content that will help drive their overall content marketing objectives."
