We view the Author Control Panel as a significant competitive advantage for our authors—very few blogging networks in the market offer their writers this kind of helpful tool.
Orange County, CA (PRWEB) March 9, 2006
Know More Media, an online publisher of business information and news, and one of the world’s leading business blog networks, has developed and launched a custom software tool for use by its growing team of business blog authors. This web-based software tool, called the ‘Author Control Panel,’ provides a Know More Media author with real-time network blogging statistics, including updated data on blog entries, comments, trackbacks, author compensation, and blog traffic.
The Author Control Panel was created to help Know More Media authors become more effective and efficient in their blogging efforts. Through the Control Panel web tool, authors gain access to live, up-to-the-minute data of the amount of blog entries they have posted currently and historically, the amount they have earned in the current pay period, as well as historical payment data, blog traffic stats, and other resources. Such data is helpful to both the authors and the company.
Rich Christiansen, Chief Technology Officer of Know More Media, stated, “We use this technology-based management system to track, support, and maintain integrity across our network of authors. This powerful system not only allows dramatic scale and consistency to the network, but greatly increases the efficiency and productivity of our authors, enabling them to publish, track performance and blog statistics, and view compensation.”
“The Author Control Panel is a unique feature in the blog world,” said Dan Tudor, author of Know More Media’s LandingTheDeal.com. “I think the Know More Media team is on the leading edge of developing the blog world, going beyond just the ‘end product’ that's seen by our readers and focusing on the tools and functionality for the people writing the blogs. It makes blogging more fun, more efficient, and more informative for our author team.”
The Author Control Panel web tool gives Know More Media authors the ability to see their blog traffic numbers and where that traffic is coming from. It also provides resources such as a Team directory, a four-part Blogging Guide, and an internal support website, thus improving the flow of information and the sharing of knowledge.
“Know More Media is absolutely the most professional blog network I have ever seen,” said Matthew W. Grant, author of Know More Media’s PurchaseRealm.com. “They do things other networks simply don’t do to increase our success and make our blogging efforts easier. I know I speak for many other authors when I say we appreciate Know More Media’s efforts in this area and all the other areas on this network.”
“This tool is extremely useful to our authors. It enables them to better manage themselves and their publishing efforts,” said Dan Smith, VP of Publishing for Know More Media. “It supplies our authors with immediate feedback and data, and, with that, power to govern their own productivity. The Author Control Panel frees up our authors so they can better focus on doing what they do best—sharing their expertise through writing.”
“Technology is paramount to the smooth operation and success of our business blog network,” said Hal Halladay, CEO of Know More Media. “We view the Author Control Panel as a significant competitive advantage for our authors—very few blogging networks in the market offer their writers this kind of helpful tool.”
