Review

Ok, we finally figured out why blog, now John Cass tells us how to do it----successfully! This comprehensive approach to developing a corporate blog program covers everything from A- 6 Apart to Y - YouTube. I particularly found the blog audit section (chapter 2) for sizing the market particularly helpful. By following John's strategies, you are sure to have a high ranking blog that resonates with your customers. I wish I had the benefit of this book when I started a corporate blog last year.
-- Warren Sukernek, Vice President of Marketing and Sales, Cruise West

John Cass provides a great wake up call for corporations. He highlights not only how blogging can improve a company's relationship with its customers, but also 'the recipe for success,' such as the mechanics of blogging, how it fits into the marketing mix, how to develop guidelines for employees, and more. He describes real examples of what companies have done in the past and what they can do moving forward to get on the blogging bandwagon. This is a must-read for anyone who is thinking about implementing blogs.
--Scott K. Wilder, Group Manager, Intuit Small Business Online Communities

In the old days, you only had two ways to reach audiences: Buy expensive advertising or convince the media to write about you. Today, the Web allows any organization to be just in time and just right publishers. John Cass delivers everything you need to know to harness the amazing power of blogs and blogger relations to reach your buyers directly.
--David Meerman Scott, Author, The New Rules of Marketing and PR

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Paul A. Baker on September 19, 2007
Format: Paperback
John Cass blogs at PR Communications where he writes knowledgeably about industry. He's also a fellow at the Society for New Communications Research (SNCR) and is past president of AMA Boston.

Strategies and Tools for Corporate Blogging is an informative and useful book that aims to give the reader the tools and strategies to develop expertise in how to build a successful corporate blog and to enable the reader to conduct effective corporate blogger relations. He makes several important points along the way.

* rather than blogging exclusively about products and services, the better strategy is to create a forum for discussing customer issues and concerns.

* blogging is about listening, and involves customer service and product development.

* PR professionals have many of the skills and strategies needed in today's new media world, but they still have much to learn from other professions if they are to succeed in blogging.

The book's only major drawback is an apparent lack of professional editing. Nevertheless, I would recommend this book, along with a couple others I've reviewed: Blogging for Business by Shel Holtz and Ted Demopoulous (Kaplan, 2006), and Naked Conversations by Robert Scoble and Shel Israel (Wiley, 2006).

Format: Paperback
John Cass combines traditional wisdom about corporate blogs and adds his own instructions on "how to" accomplish building and maintaining an excellent corporate social media and blogging strategy. John's book manages to be both engaging and methodical at the same time. I would highly recommend this book as a desk-side bible for PR pros, corporate communicators and anyone who speaks on the subject of corporate blogs.
