Consider 3 Levels of Startup Blogs

Prior to launching, a startup may have a few blog postings, most of them either commenting on the industry at large or trying to recruit new talent by either profiling the company culture or giving potential employees a glimpse of the underlying technology. But it’s at and after launch that it’s time to get serious about blogging. And to our clients we recommend a 3-tier approach.

A tiered approach might sound like overkill for a young company, but keep in mind our two goals: 1) create the broadest image of the company, and 2) distribute the responsibilities of blogging across the entire company.

Business-centric blogs

The first tier business-centric. This is the purvey of the CEO (and perhaps one or two others on the management team). It’s a look at how you see the industry, market and technology trends, global issues, and where the pain points and opportunities are within it, and what you plan to do about it.

Combine business and technology

The second tier is a high-level approach to your technology, methodology and architecture. The authors are the CTO, head of Engineering, even the head of Products. It is technical in nature but is targeted at a C-level decision maker, and so has a blend of technology and business.

Deep dive into tech

The third level if for the troops. It can be a deep dive into the specific feature or technology that they’re working on—which shows both the excitement of working there as well as another glimpse into the technology—or it can be a note about the culture (Forget daily donuts: we have gaming lunches every Tuesday and Thursday.)

It’s up to Marketing to build and administer this schedule, but if you do it right you’ll have a rolling 3-month calendar without taxing your writers more than once during that period.
