Conclusion A corporate blog is a blog published by or with the support of an organization to reach that organization's goals. As of late 2006, about 8 percent of the Fortune 500 companies are blogging in some capacity, and this number is only growing. It is in the best interests of businesses that they look into using company blogs in order to market and inform about products and services, or even offer information to the public about the company itself. Blogs had advantages over other, older ways of communicating such as e-mail and websites. The success of a business blog depends on several key factors: The content and goals of the site need to be well-planned, focused, and consistent. The implementation needs to be technically sound with a means for readers to provide public-facing feedback. The interaction between writer and reader needs to be encouraged, nurtured, and moderated. Blogs are good for business, Microsoft chairman Bill Gates has said.
