There are several ways your business can benefit from
blogging short of starting your own blog, from simply
identifying and monitoring the most influential blogs
in your industry, to asking bloggers to write about
interesting developments at your
company, to guest-blogging.
But once you’ve made the commitment to writing
your own blog, here are seven essential tools beyond
the blogging platform itself (Blogger, TypePad,
WordPress, Moveable Type, etc.) to help promote
your business blog and make it successful.
Here are some great online Blogging tools
Like a set of power tools for bloggers, Technorati lets you claim your blog, add tags to
make it easier for people to find it, monitor your blog’s popularity, place an
“Add this to my Technorati favorites” Web 2.0 social tagging button,
install a toolbar plug-in to tag your favorite sites/blogs, and more.
The easiest way to produce and promote an RSS feed for your blog so
your fans can add your feed to their favorite RSS newsreader, MyYahoo,
NetVibes or other desktop tool.
A free, easy-to-add traffic-tracking tool for your blog, that shows you traffic by day,
week and month as well as where your readers are coming from.
Web 2.0 social tagging service where you can submit your blog, post articles,
tag your favorite sites, and add a “My Zimbio” tagging button to make it
easy for your readers to tag your blog posts.
Another social tagging site that provides a free “Digg It” button for your blog to
let readers easily tag your posts for increased visibility. Digg is monitored
by Google Alerts, which further increases your blog’s exposure.
Each time you add a new post, use Pingoat to easily and automatically ping
the most popular syndication services (including Technorati,
FeedBurner, Moreover and IceRocket) to let them know you’ve added new content.
