Can Enterprise 2.0 Benefit Me in Future?

17 08 2009

I think my answer will be… YES…

I am always interested in starting up my own café in Singapore, with gaining more knowledge in this unit (Enterprise 2.0) and help me to promote it using IT. Few example like the writing on a Blog, Twitter or Facebook. Everyone is using all this Web 2.0 sites to market their business.

In the past people will always hire advertising companies and paying huge amount for it…

I am thinking why not doing everything by myself using the advance web 2.0 applications online to solve all this issues. Like starting up a blog about café, which I can collect information and thoughts of other’s comments as marketing research;

Currently there is blog using this strategy,



They are promoting their food, events and having the customer surveying/comments right in their blog. This is a way, which can interact with customers and showing them what’s new in their café and what’s happening next. When they have special promotion or events or deals, they no need to give out brochures or pamphlet, customers can simply syndicate the RSS function, and read in their mail or RSS reader…

So that’s why I want to learn more about Enterprise 2.0 and enhance my skills in blogging, creating my branding & digital identity, and even building up my web presence.
