Thanks for sharing this. Love the Dippin' Dots example. I now feel inspired to go and jazz up my landing page... and try to understand the logic behind facebook navigation once again. There is more than one thing I want to try here, so I've bookmarked it."
LOL - have never heard of Engrish before! It's interesting to see your British/American mix. I think many people have mixed sources of English today. And that is not even talking about the other big English speaking countries. I love different accents by the way. It's funny because, I've navigated in so many different English origins that I don't notice the cultural differences in vocabulary very much anymore. But I really like picking up the differences in accents. Not the individual pronunciations. I should say the overall music of the language. It's fun to see how different the same language can be."
I love this comparison between 2 different white papers from 2 different governments. It highlights the cultural differences... and surprised me. I really would have expected the US government white paper to be more user-friendly or user-readable. As a foreigner I sometimes see vague similarities between British and Scandinavia media... (please remember that I don't speak any Scandinavian languages, so it's just similarities with the overall impression)... but it would be interesting to look at some Scandinavia government white papers now. I wonder if they would be boring like the US one, or lively and easy to read like the UK one."
Some good points here. I see so many people who become obsessed with followers and all the questions around followers - should you follow them, unfollow them, spend a large portion of time "managing" the follows. If only they stepped back and thought a bit more about their strategy, objectives and how to hook up with people. "
I liked this video so much and told so many people about it that I put it on my Posterous page. Can't wait to get the book. One of the slides here says that purchases will be influenced by social media... and this really got me thinking about whether social media will create a greater cultural divide at some stage because of this. Different cultures will respond differently to this. "
This video is 12 minutes long and well worth listening to. These are 2 people who know what small businesses need to market their business. What stood out to me is that money is not an excuse. I get requests from small businesses all over the world who have difficulty with this one. They say that their business is different and they can only market their business with high cost tactics. And agree with Rod on this - I believe that their main problem is their mental approach and not their lack of marketing budget."
