Should you be creating content or curating content? Which is the better way to go?

After all, there are many different buyers in many different phases of the customer lifecycle. The key to capturing their interest is to provide content that hooks their attention, lets them know you are an expert in providing solutions to their problems, and brings them further into the buying cycle.
