How did you measure the success of this initiative?

I believe the blog is successful because the information that is posted is timely and easily shared by subscribers with other members. Word-of-blog travels very fast.

What improvements can be made?

AAR could improve this communication vehicle by highlighting the subscribe feature. receives hundreds of visits per day by members looking for new information. If members knew they could receive a notice of updates to the blog, the number of subscribers would increase dramatically.

Tips / Suggestions for other AEs:

  • Use the blog for important updates. Also, be sure to update it often or members will forget it exists.
