SWMS Alert: Cisco's "The Network"

Check out Cisco’s newly launched content site, “The Network.” If you've got a seven-figure budget, this is how it's done. The site showcases how much engagement a given item has generated. Readers can easily share content on Twitter and Facebook and embed a widget into their web site. Among the site's many freelance contributors are names you know: Bill Bulkeley. Betsy Corcoran. Marc Gunther. Steve Wildstrom. Herding these cats is former Forbes.com editor Wendy Tanaka. Cisco even has three IT pros dedicated to the site's infrastructure.

With all this, what does success look like?

CIO is a tough nut to crack but less so if you've got some chops in social media and clients who can hook you up with front-line IT pros. Laurianne's biggest job: to differentiate CIO's coverage.

Can you help her?
