Blogging as a relationship builder for entrepreneurs

I’ve long been a fan of Fred Wilson’s blog (‘A VC’) – if you’re a start-up entrepreneur or business owner you really should subscribe too.

The above video is a great snap-shot of the benefits of blogging in business. The gist of Fred’s words:

“blogging allows for the opportunity for VCs to enter into a dialogue with entrepreneurs over a period of time…to get to know one another…well before an investment decision needs to be made”

It is only fairly recently that such tools have become widely available and this has sooo much potential for every business owner and adviser.

We all now have the opportunity to demonstrate our approach to business thinking and to get to know one other (virtually) over a period of time before potentially entering into a (real-world) business relationship or project in the future.

Its all a bit like online (business) dating – but perhaps far more likely to find the right match over the longer term than traditional – yet speculative – business networking and marketing!

What are your thoughts on business blogging?
