Great case study from a top brand.
As a blogger, columnist and marketer, I find that many people on all sides of the issue don't understand how to treat bloggers and columnists like real people, not just a conduit to their audience. Offer information of value to me and my my readers but don't spam me with your latest press release.

Jayne -- Thank you for reading and thinking about my posts. I truly believe that a blog is owned by its community as is any other form of social media. To answer your question, I have been inspired to write articles based on the comments on my blog. Don't overlook the fact that you use comments on other people's blogs. Happy marketing, Heidi Cohen

Justin--Thank you for collecting this data. It's no surprise photographs are most engaging item on Facebook since they're easy. (Photos are the number 2 activity on smartphones after text messages.) Further, no writing is needed and they often involve multiple people. Happy marketing, Heidi Cohen

I'd suggest that one of the reasons for the rise of photo apps is not the decline of the written word but rather photographs are easy for consumers. Every phone, both smartphones and feature phones, can take a photograph. With consumer photos, there's no worry about how good my written communications are. I believe that a blog should still be at the heart of a strong social media marketing program. Happy marketing, Heidi Cohen

PaulBiedermann Paul -- I appreciate your perspective. But the bottom line is that company titles are part of a firm's brand and it's important to be professional. It's similar to having casual Friday. It's good to let employees be comfortable and not have to dress up, but wearing the right uniform can be important to your brand and internal work ethic.

dbvickery Love your example! Unfortunately, most organizations only look at the title. They don't look at where you sit in the organization or at your paycheck. If belonging to these organizations is important, I recommend talking with your management team and HR to get a secondary title that makes you the CXO of your division. Good luck. Happy marketing, Heidi Cohen
AmyMccTobin Amy-- I agree that a well understood title helps employees and their companies. It's a signal of support and shows that you're part of the team. Further, it's a VERY important reflection on your brand. Happy marketing, Heidi Cohen
Pam--I agree determining what topics to cover on your blog is a difficult line between what your readers expect and what your heart wants to express. Additionally, Margie Clayman is a great leader in showing bloggers how to craft strong posts that quietly make her point without hurting anyone. Happy marketing, Heidi Cohen
