    31. 31. People have different expectationswhen they go online. Readers seek up-to-the-minute information in amedia-rich environment that includesvideo, message boards, andopportunities to connect via socialnetworks. Creating an onlinepublication that delivers relevantcontent and draws repeat visits takesdedication and time. (con’d)
    32. 32. Putting a publication on the web offersnew opportunities to communicatewith people beyond your core audience.The CASE research finds that externalsearches often spark more interest inyour organization and the informationand expertise you provide. Onlinepublications must be optimized tohelp people find you. Claire Napier and Dan Woychick, Feb. 24, 2010
