Most marketers (57%) say they should share 10 or more pieces of content per day to properly engage with their customers, according to a recent report by Trapit.

Asked how many pieces of content a company needs to share/curate, survey respondents suggested numbers ranging from 0 to 135, with the most common response being 10 pieces of content (19% of respondents).
