Packaged, filtered, controlled conversations are out. Open, two-way, authentic communications with your customers and employees are in. We’re entering a new age of corporate communications, and blogs are a key enabler of a better way of talking with customers, employees, the media, and other key constituencies.
In The Corporate Blogging Book Debbie Weil provides a clear-eyed look at blogging as a marketing communications strategy-what works, what doesn’t, and why creating and maintaining a good blog is worth the effort.
Weil demystifies corporate blogging by stripping away the technical jargon and showing you exactly what your customer needs from your blog. She urges managers and executives to confront their fear of blogging. She explains how to avoid legal pitfalls, who should be doing the blogging, and how to keep readers coming back.
Weil explains how corporations like Google, GM, and IBM are maintaining popular blogs and keeping their sales up. Whether your company is large or small, make your way into the blogosphere, and let Debbie Weil show you how to get it right the first time.
