Top 10 Corporate Blog Awards: Nominations | Finalists | Top 10 Winners

Blogging for BusinessWe need your help. Over 7,500 of you signed up for the business blogging webinar we did last month. Your questions and enthusiasm on the topic were awesome. So let’s keep it going.

Blogging for your business is one of the first steps many businesses take in social media. And yet, most businesses see little to no return on their business blog.

We will continue to add to our educational resources on blogging. But today, we are looking for some good examples.

What business blogs are doing a good job? Which ones get you to give them your email address? Which ones do you go back to time and again? Or subscribe to? Which ones delight you and why?

The Contest

    If you’re looking for “business” not “social media marketing blog which kinda relates to a segment of business” then I’d vote for Workshifting, (http://workshifting.com) which I read almost daily. I think Network Solution’s GrowSmartBiz blog qualifies as well (http://www.networksolutions.com/smallbusiness/). Both are very helpful to business owners, not just Twitter jockeys.

  • http://www.shashi.name/ Shashib

    Thanks Jason – The link to the Network Solutions Blog had a extra character so I am taking the liberty of adding the link here http://networksolutions.com/smallbusiness The blog was created not for Network Solutions but for out customers to get news, tips and articles that would help small business success. Glad to have Rieva a Small Business Thought leader and a number of other small business contribute to this blog.

    My nomination is the Ignite Social Media Blog – fantastic business blog that serves as a valuable resource and showcases their knowledge in this space. http://www.ignitesocialmedia.com

  • Anonymous

    CruiseSource.us was one of the first businesses in any industry to use a blog for content marketing. When you go to the blog of course the first page shows the cruises being marketed. But if you go to the “Cruise Advice” tab you’ll see excellent articles that have been crowded off the front page on a range of topics from “How to Plan a Fundraising Cruise” to “Do’s and Don’ts for Destination Wedding Planning.”

    For those interested in using social media marketing in your business go to the “Social Media” tab to see how Rich Tucker and CruiseSource has done so. Great stuff.

    The core is a “fresh” (pun intended) approach to thinking about the produce business. The commentry is thoughtful and the writing is smart. They make the sometimes confusing world of technology and social media easy to understand and accessible to the produce industry, while mixing relevant, tangible information with a good dose of humor.

    Not to mention…the site is clean, well laid out and easy to read – something you take for granted until you see a blog that isn’t.

  • http://investinsocial.com Jason Keath

     Kris. Thanks for your comment. 

    We felt a company blog that has only one contributor was in fact easier than a multi-author more well rounded blog. Both are relevant, but we chose to judge companies that were gathering multiple contributors as a sign that more than one person in the company was involved in developing the content channel.

    Hey Jason – I love your blog of course and because that is out of the question I particularly want to nominate (as my top pick)@LeoWid:disqus and Joel at http://blog.bufferapp.com/ – I love Buffer (no brainer) but I only started to read more of their blog posts recently when this one in particular caught my eye. http://blog.bufferapp.com/5-key-lessons-we-learned-from-pivoting-our-blog (one of the best posts I have seen on blog positioning/targeting a niche/finding your voice etc). It really piqued my interest when I read about their “pivot” towards lifehacking posts. The posts are great, they have multiple authors and doing great for a small team. Fab writing style. I love how they have kept monitoring and adjusting their content to get the right fit for their target audience, and were not afraid to “pivot” in order to do so. I would have to say that when they did do that, was probably the point in time that I started subscribing.

    Others would be:
    @twitter-10437802:disqus and his team at LIkeable who have definitely stepped up and posted more regularly and really creating great content on their blog.
    Michael Hyatt http://www.michaelhyatt.com – not sure if his constitutes a company blog but he has a small team to handle his community and a lot of guest bloggers. Cheers!
