Cindy,

I am looking forward to this new adventure! :)

Could I use your post as a link reference in my upcoming course, Marketing through blogging and other social media?

I agree, Cindy. This is/should be a book. Social media is a HUGE topic and even reducing it to the subtopic of social media for business includes plenty of territory. I think your experiences in cross-cultural marketing would add even further dimension here.

Shawn, you hit the nail on the head. A UK web consultant who serves small businesses has asked me to create a product for his clients. They want to hear from someone like them who is using social media... So I guess I'll write a few more posts.

It is interesting how my cross-cultural business background has helped me adapt social media for my business. It's really about keeping a business focus in an environment that you are not familiar with and expecting that you'll get things wrong first time around. So planning to be flexible and reactive...

I'm also amazed by the number of people who bring personal baggage into their social media tactics (and losing or diluting their business focus) without realizing it.

Useful post for small business folks getting into social media. This should be expanded into an ebook.

Cindy,

Very thoughtful post. I will have great use of it in my new role as a social media specialist & business intelligence analyst at a new start-up company.
