Best of the Web

Executive's Guide to Blogs: Best of the WebBlogs pre-date social network platforms and were one of the first examples of Web 2.0, peer-to-peer technologies. WordPress, Blogger, Typepad and others have become technology platforms with vast ecosystems of plugin and template makers and a slew of other services. As with other Executive’s Guides, our focus here is how brands, businesses and executives can use blogs to create unusual business value.

The posts I select are largely focused on enterprise applications of trust- and relationship-building because these lead to business and profit. You can let EGSN curate the best posts for you by bookmarking this page and checking whenever you want the best of blog strategy and tactics. I add posts to the collection several times per week on average.
