All rights reserved. ePAPER | MARCH 2014 Grade Your Expert Center Leading organizations are investing in new ways to showcase expert content, as well as their subject matter experts and thought leaders for market visibility and reputation management. While creating credible and engaging content is important, companies are also looking for ways to make their experts and content more approachable and accessible. One of the best ways to do this is to create an expert center. Whether your expert center covers the company as a whole or select experts, certain best-practices are key to making it a success. How is your organization doing? Take this simple test based on industry benchmarks. Yes No Is Your Expert Center Discoverable? Integrated expert directory with the ability to quickly search by key information, such as topics, keywords and names? Yes No Is Your Expert Center Engaging? Detailed biographies and overviews of specialities and expertise? Full multimedia & social media integration? Amazon™ author information and book covers? Content and multimedia optimized for search engines such as Google? Yes No Is Your Expert Center Collaborative? Experts can update content within their profiles? Marketing and designated staff can update profiles and manage inquiries on behalf of experts? Yes No Is Your Expert Center Responsive? Inquiry forms for each expert that provide context to best respond to media requests? Real-time email alerts to multiple parties when an inquiry is submitted?
