Corporations entering the blogosphere

This has been an interesting beginning of a journey

Jeremiah take note of the effect here….

After EMC joined the blogosphere everyone wanted to throw their opinions around and start an in-depth conversation with EMC. There of course have been critics, complaints, and general misgivings….but EMC’s employees have maintained a stron customer centric response and they continue to ask for more! Now that is community. From what I’ve seen from Dell, Intel, & HDS’s experiences jumping in, not all companies handle it the same. We should be glad we followed in HDS’s footsteps and proud of our corporate resources listening (despite endless prompting).

EMC has handled the introduction well. Chuck knows what blogging is about and makes me want to work in alliances (he makes it sound so exciting)!!

There of course are some things that need work….

Then again, these things come in time and are learned (We all have learned a few things since we started blogging)….

    I really hope that EMC corporate is listening to this excellent advice. I agree with all of these points.

    I heard Mark on a podcast talking why he doesn’t want to have comments enabled, as he wants to ‘talk to the audience, and they can’t talk back’. He also referenced fear of what other vendors would write on his blog.

    If Bloggers heard that, Mark would be in some significant trouble with the blogging community, PR, and Marketers in Social Media. Business blogging is about dialogue, and open and ‘naked’ conversation with the audience.

    These tools themselves aren’t nearly as important as what it means to drop the walls down to have conversations with one’s market and audience can yield a company to have a better understanding of the needs of the market, thereby to produce better products.

    Josh, you truly are a gem and an asset to EMC.
