Some fantastic stuff around this week
- The brilliant Peter Kim has turned his list of social media marketing examples into a wiki, a great resource for anyone monitoring how businesses are using social media to connect with their customers.
- Drew B from Hotwire posted on a subject that has real resonance with me – the difficulties of managing an every increasing email inbox.
- Forrester released a report which had the online community talking, the most frequently quoted statistic of which was the figure that only 16% of online consumers trust corporate blogs. I don't think that means that the corporate blog is dead, just proves even more that if they're going to be valued they have to be open and honest.
- Once again Sally Whittle comes up trumps with what has to be the best blog post title ever, is there such a word as uberwank?
- E-consultancy have released a Online PR Benchmarking Report, which looks really informative. I haven't had chance to read it properly but I will do over the weekend and will blog about it some more. Praise should go to e-consultancy for this which is long overdue. Why the heck aren't the CIPR doing something like this?
- And finally, if you want a simple explanation of what a blog is (for your mum or the MD that just doesn't get it), here it is from Meg Pickard. One of my favourite blogs.
