What To Blog About In Your Business?

I highly recommend reading this great article 83 B2B Social Media Blog Post Ideas | Social Media B2B. It is full of ideas to create blog posts. Some of the ideas are great and others are completely weird.

  1. What 5 Experts Say About…
  2. Interview internal employees and ask them to answer simple questions (by email even) such as who they are, what they do and how it serves your customers.
  3. Take a look at the keyword searches that are bringing people to your site, as this will give you a great idea of what information people are looking for.
  4. Publish a post listing your favorite five or ten posts from other blogs, and explain why you like them.
  5. Let a guest write a post for your blog; someone whose advice your customers would value.
  6. Review a product or service and write what you like and dislike about it.
  7. Write about a very unique use of one of your products (my idea).
And finally, post regularly. It doesn't matter if you post daily, weekly, bi-weekly, etc. Just try to be consistent.

Happy blogging!

Article Review: The Evolution of Manufacturing in America - Personal Stories from One Company

Standard Motor Products manufacturing facility in Greenville SCThis is one of the best articles I have ever read on the evolution of American manufacturing. The author takes an in-depth look at one company that started a century ago. He compares and contrasts production methods and workers of not-too-long-ago versus workers of today. He compares and contrasts the skill levels of workers today and yesterday.

The personal examples of two machine operators illustrate the need today for advanced training in precision machining, CNC programming, metalurgy and other advanced manufacturing skills. But he also discusses how the high level of automation will make traditional manufacturing jobs scarce and difficult to obtain.  Plus, he constantly addresses the issue of competition with low wage productions countries like Mexico and China.
By following three specific people in the company, he really drives home the personal stories about how changes in manufacturing technologies have affected real Americans. The stories are compelling and educational and they have a much larger meaning for American manufacturing and our society overall.

So here is the must read article:  Making It in America - January/February 2012 Atlantic Magazine

This article was also featured in a two part audio series on NPR:

Thank you to the AmericanManufacturing.org Blog for it's article The new factory worker which led me to the original article in The Atlantic Magazine.
