RSS In the Corporate World
There are bigger fish to catch out there
when it comes to RSS. Larger than life opportunities for RSS exist not
in blogs but in the corporate sector. And as more and more web services
join the RSS bandwagon offering syndication with a creative twist,
there's no doubt that RSS can be used as far as imagination can go.
Companies, which previously ignored RSS
as just another fad, have started to take notice of what it has to
offer. A lot of big wigs in the e-commerce industry have started to have
second thoughts about how content should be delivered to their clients
and prospects. Many of the corporate as well start up companies have
started to realize how beneficial it is for their customers and
subscribers to receive content of their own choice. Since the consumer's
choice undermines any other thing on the net, in future RSS would
definitely be the driving force behind delivering quality content,
seamlessly balancing it with consistency.
Coming back to blogs, the blogging era
started with a bang and now you see bloggers everywhere, in the news or
in your neighborhood. But webmasters are finding this activity
time-consuming, as maintaining a quality blog is not just about content
but about original and unique content. With new blogging tools and
services springing up every other day, creating a blog is easy. But
finding a USP for your blog and generating an income from it is getting
much more difficult as the web gets crowded with more of these "online
journals". Eventually blogs, which are promoting RSS in a big way, are
going to suffer a setback in the near future, as many people switch back
leaving most of the blogs deserted.
Simply Syndicating Your Business
RSS, on the other hand, will continue
to add more avenues to the web, allowing web users to save time and
energy and making the information more reachable. For the webmasters,
RSS not only gives a better ROI (Return on Investment) but also gives an
excellent ROTI (Return on Time Investment). It will help them to get the
most out of their content by giving them the freedom to re-assort and
combine their information for better productivity.
A web business using RSS to the maximum
benefit will not only bring in more new visitors but also bring in
traffic, which is laser-targeted. High conversion ratio accompanied with
increased search engine ranking comes as part and parcel when RSS is
used as a marketing medium.
RSS will thrive as a communication
channel in the coming future and will help correspondence to reach a new
level altogether with the enclosure tag. In the process, redefine how
contacts are established. This will surely empower RSS to grow as a
With the type of flexibility RSS
provides, the consumer's demands will undoubtedly surge and in turn fuel
companies with more business ideas. Which makes the content produced
more vast, effective and tightly themed with rich keywords. Not only
that, an on going communication with the current prospects, yields in a
better trust for the company and establishes a rock solid reputation
among peer groups.
Centralizing the Web
With every passing day we see,
businesses are starting to use RSS in different positive ways, making
the information more centralized. Giving users the opportunity to find
the right information at the right time at one place, rather than
skimming across the Internet.
As consumers nowadays, have started to
become choosy and selective about the content they want to read. The web
is no longer random. RSS is slowly making it organized and theme-based.
This is one of the major reasons RSS is going through an exponential
phase of growth and will continue to do so. What makes really simple
syndication useful today is the consumer himself. The strongest benefit
a consumer derives from RSS is he/she controls the information he/she
receives and is not bombarded with unsolicited messages. As the delivery
system is totally opt-in, safe and effective. If at all the user feels
that the feed's content is not up to the mark and the quality is
declining, he/she can very easily remove the feed from his reader and
not receive any future updates or messages.
RSS might not completely replace email
in the future but it will definitely join in to be on the same level
very soon. As the importance for content quality and delivery grows, RSS
feeds will definitely have a higher priority with time.
On the last note, blogs may have helped
in spreading the word about RSS and how useful it is. However, it will
be the websites with new ideas and corporate companies, which will reap
the benefits. RSS will help them find new revenue streams, build strong
brand loyalty, acquire repeat customers and promote a continuous
development. In the process, giving a fresh lease to new and old
