“Company Blogs are Digital Publications that Allow Public Responses” – Hubspot.com
Leaders can communicate directly with customers, suppliers and investors, as well as employees, helping disseminate and explain strategy.
Blogs give the writer an opportunity to answer critics in a controlled forum.
Compared with conference or printed memos to all staff, enterprise blogs are highly cost effective.

Not likely. What happens instead is that the process becomes automated, which appears in the form of a lovely piece of technology (point one). What this means is that we now have less staff in the office with systems replacing their retrenched peers.
More and more companies are opting for Software as a Services (SaaS), which means that employees can operate from anywhere, at anytime. This also means that there is a new potential audience, in the form of online visitors, which may not have existed before.
Opportunity knocks. Say goodbye to costly traditional offline marketing and hello to online marketing, which can be more cost effective. In addition to this, you have more control over:
