Social Media may be something you may or may not be thinking about for your company but, even if you sit back and read the reports coming in from how social networking has helped the Top 500 U.S. companies, the results may surprise you.

A report conducted By: Eric Mattson, Nora Ganim Barnes, Ph.D. at University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Center for Marketing Research recently conducted one of the first statistically significant, longitudinal studies on the usage of social media in corporations.

The new study compares corporate adoption of social media between 2007 and 2008 by the Inc. 500, a list of the fastest-growing private U.S. companies compiled annually by Inc. Magazine. For details about the 2007 Inc. 500 and the complete directory of the included companies, please visit Inc. Magazine's website at

"This study revisits the Inc. 500 approximately one year later (using the 2007 list) in the first longitudinal study on corporate use of these new technologies. Given that previous research now shows that just 11.6% of the Fortune 500 currently having a public blog, it is astounding to see that 39% of the Inc. 500 are blogging. The addition of 3.6% more Fortune 500 companies to the blogosphere pales in comparison to the addition of 20% more of the Inc. 500 companies after the same time period".

This is a clear example that CONTENT IS KING and the more to offer relevant content that your target audience is wanting the more chance you have of keeping or getting their business.

Some blogging platforms out there are and these sites are both good starter points for any small business to get set-up on and Wordpress will be a little more SEO friendly for your search rankings.
