Welcome to the Business Success with CRM blog.
What is a Business Blog:
A blog is a web page made up of usually short, frequently updated posts that are arranged chronologically - like a what's new page or journal.
A business blog is a corporate tool for communicating with clients and employees to share knowledge and expertise. Business blogs are sweeping the business community. Blogs are an excellent method to share a company's expertise, build additional web traffic, and connect with potential customers.
Two ways to subscribe so that you receive automatic updates:
Option 1 is by email where you'll receive the blog articles directly in your Email Inbox. Enter your email address in the "Get an email when we post a new article" box on the right and click on "Subscribe" button.
is the message you'll receive when done.
Option 2 is by an RSS feed. What is RSS...more info..?
Click this button to subscribe by RSS feed.
Normally this can come into your Outlook RSS folder OR through an RSS reader such as Google's Reader. (RSS - Really Simple Syndication)
Select the RSS folder name in Outlook.
Where is a sampling of the blog articles:
Notice at the bottom of this page a list of the last 15 blog articles. You can click on any one and read more. Also check out the Executive Summary page.
RSS feed Reader:
A typical interface for a feed reader will display your feeds and the number of new (unread) entries within each of those feeds. You can also organize your feeds into categories and even clip and save your favorite entries (with certain applications).
If you prefer, you can use an online, web-based service to track and manage feeds. Online services give you the advantage of being able to access your feed updates anywhere you can find a web browser. Google's Reader is one of the most popular free news readers.
What are feeds? I see "RSS", "XML", and "Atom" out there, but I don't know how I might use these links when I find them.
Feeds are a way for websites large and small to distribute their content well beyond just visitors using browsers. Feeds permit subscriptionto regular updates, delivered automatically via a web portal, news reader, or in some cases good old email. Feeds also make it possible for site content to be packaged into "widgets," "gadgets," mobile devices, and other bite-sized technologies that make it possible to display blogs, podcasts, and major news/sports/weather/whatever headlines just about anywhere.
