Blog Benefits & Measurement
Benefit Appropriate Measurement

Address criticisms on other blogs/news stories Measure the slow down of bad news spreading
More responsive to consumer concerns Track customer satisfaction and retention
Improve employee innovation and productivity Track employee satisfaction and retention
Improved stock price with greater visibility into the organization Connect improved investor sentiment to blog readership

It was about time to put it this clear: blogs need to deliver results when use for corporate purposes.

Charlene Li is in the right track and has offered -along with Chloe Stromberg- a framework to measure blog ROI.

From my point of view, blogs causes differente effects compared to traditional PR, taking into account that the old way was a third party endorsemente (media) and corporate blogs struggle for its own credibility and relevance.

Good job, Charlene and Thanx, Kevin.
