Debbie Weil Give Easy-to-Apply and Sage Advice

  • Nov 9, 2006
  • by
Want to use blogging to expand your corporate presence or simply add blogging to your visibility in the marketplace? Debbie Weil has written an easy-to-understand book without jargon yet packed with practical step-by-step advise to guide you through the process of setting up an effective corporate blog. She's included sound research mixed with personal experience.

If you aren't the CEO of your company but believe blogging would be a great tool for the company, Debbie gives you the ammunition to convince the CEO to start a corporate blogging effort. I used my highlighter throughout my reading of this well-crafted book. I highly recommend it for the beginner or the advanced reader--whether you are not technical or a geek--everyone can learn something significant in this book.

review by . June 07, 2007
Frankly, I am astonished by the rapid growth of blogging and, especially, by the rapidly increasing adoption of blogging as a primary (not exclusive) medium for corporate communications, both internal and external. There are several dozen excellent books now in print that explain this phenomenon (Debbie Weil identifies many of them in her "Recommended Reading" section) and this book is certainly one of them. As I began to read it, I was immediately reminded of an incident decades ago when Vince …

Yes, there's a flood of books on business blogging hitting the market, but each one is different.

About this book


With citizen bloggers multiplying by the minute, corporations are keen to co-opt the authenticity of this online publishing phenomenon. But while many already understand the concept (GM's Bob Lutz, who wrote the foreword, is a blogger), many more are struggling to make sense of a fairly simple proposition: use your blog as a meaningful conduit to your customers, and watch them become your best advocates; use it as an outlet for stale press releases, and watch the world yawn or walk away. Weil provides background on blogs, offers tips on writing them ("invite a conversation"), addresses common concerns ("what if my employees are blogging?"), discusses tools and technology (including podcasts and wikis), and offers a cheat sheet for convincing the boss that it's time to blog. Bonus resources include sample policies and guidelines, design tips, a glossary, and more. Short and sweet, this is more enthusiastic and personably written--and includes fewer CYA disclaimers--than Nancy Flynn'sBlog Rules(2006) and is more appropriate for the corporate crowd than Andy Wibbels'Blogwild!(2006).Keir Graff
