Unlock the Value of Blogs
„In an efford to assist corporations to unlock the value of blogs, Gartener researchers have offered three main suggestions. First, identify a point of focus for the blog, and then work to understand the current bloggers and etiquette within the particular environment. Second, keep expectations at a reasonable level. While blogging can act as a low-cost supplement to other forms of communication, it is not a replacement. Finally, keep in mind that creating and maintaining an effective blog does require a fair ammount of skill and effort. Be realistic about your companies abilities, and if neccessary, do not hesitate to outsource initial blog hosting efforts (Valdes, Austing & Drakos, 2007).“
