Business Blogging Book Promotion

Blogging for BusinessThe folks over at BusinessBlogSummit have a book offer for Publish and Prosper: Blogging for your Business.

Ok, it’s free. [I just don't want to lead off every other blog post with 'free']

BusinessBlogSummit has been good to me, linking to a number of my posts and I like their content.

Here’s the book deal: We Want to Get Businesses Blogging

Publish and Prosper is a new book, having been published on June 1, 2006 by New Riders Press.

The book description at Amazon goes:

It’s time for a practical book about business blogging: this is the first book to demonstrate how businesses are blogging and how you can use blogging technology to converse with your customers to build your brand and sell your products.

Written from the business person/designer’s perspectives, this book shows how businesses can leverage current, real-world blogging techniques, tools, and platforms to promote and enhance their ventures.

The key idea is that the conversation with your market is stronger and more meaningful with a blog. Filled with practical information and a how-to approach, this book provides case studies of companies as large as Boeing or General Motors and as small as Clip-’n-seal.

Readers will learn about the types of business blogs, how companies use blogs, how to sell blogs to management and IT, effective blog design, content, and conversation, pitfalls to avoid, how to develop Web presence, and more.

In case you’re wondering if it’s too ‘business-like’ for your purposes, Marcus Connery from Seattle left an Amazon review noting:
This a great book for anyone thinking about blogging be it for business or just for pleasure. Even if you are just doing a personal blog, the point is you want people to see it, otherwise you could just write in a journal and put it under your pillow.

They lay out in very detailed yet understandable terms how to go about getting it set up, what options you have, and where to go do so. Then once set up, the whole point is getting it out there.

Thats where this book really shines. Lots of books and articles and yes, even blogs, have been written about how to blog. These guys take it to the next level and explain how to get it out to the masses.

    I was actually interested in reading the book but I don’t live in the US nor do I have my own business. Well maybe next time if they ease up on the restrictions I’ll be able to bet a copy.

    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running off the
    screen in Firefox. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The design look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon.

    An ISP might give you free Internet access with speeds up to 16Mbps.
    Will you be the only Internet service connection available luggage eagle
    creek to anyone is dial-up connectivity. Not matter what your needs are a California T1 Line Service Provider
    can be found to meet those needs. Your primary concern should be to
    carry out as much research as you can and choose analyzing all
    the pros and cons. But along with the high speed internet access is often connected via a static IP is increasingly in demand.
