Does your company utilize a blog? Has this been a successful tactic for you?

April 7, 2010Author Mark Hughes

Blogs are considered one of many social media tools in the mix that can provide targeted information to customers/prospects. Like most social media tools, blogs offer an outlet for conversations that are relaxed and informal—and consequently more open and inviting. Blogs provide an opportunity for your company to present a new face and to relate to your customers on a new level.

The key to any successful blog is to provide targeted, relevant information on a consistent basis. Blogs can be utilized in a number of ways—to ignite meaningful conversations, share ideas that will help others with their business and gain feedback on your products/services.

To promote your blog, consider using the following tactics: public relations, collateral at trade shows, banner ads, your own Web site, e-mail blasts, social media tools, and RSS and e-mail subscriptions.

Some food ingredient company blogs I have come across are listed here. I will continue to build this list as I hear about them. These provide a good idea of the different kinds of voices that blogs can take. Let me know if you’ve seen other interesting food ingredient blogs you’d like us to share.
