The Corporate Blogging Book
'A corporate blog that is boring or confusing is worse than none at all,' says Weil, an American marketer on a born-again blogging mission. Despite her promise to 'keep existential ramblings about blogging to a minimum', you won't be spared her terribly cheesy business-speak. But if you can grit your teeth and get past this, there's a surprisingly good book to be discovered here. Could be useful.
Robert Scobel and Shel Israel
'How blogs are changing the way businesses talk with customers' is the self-explanatory subtitle. If you've got some time on your hands and want to read a strategic analysis of what blogging can do for your business, this book is for you. It's written by Microsoft's chief blogger, so bear in mind that you'll be on the receiving end of a corporate blogging evangelist. Could be useful.
