What is getting more and more funny…and crazy at the same time…is that I am getting busier and busier on my Sina Weibo, Tencent Weixin and QQ, talking about English social media and American vs Chinese culture and way of life.
Those of you following me, my life, and this blog have seen me spending the last year, even year and a half now doing Shenzhen ecommerce seminars, hong kong twitter meetups, and an attempted manila meetup – as well as recruiting + training. Before that I was doing my own internal training….but realized to make things more open.
After cooperating with a Chinese Foreign Trade Federation I am finally realizing I cannot keep having free meetings…..especially in China. Chinese people always tell me, if an event if free in China, they see it as an advertisement, or low quality. Sadly, they say, the more expensive an event, or product is, the more valuable it must be.
So I’m going to have this Chinese event marketing team market + sell my training services…and we will test it out on Saturday, Jan 7, 2012. I have tons of powerpoints from the many years doing this, but I the most popular topic is SNS (social networking)
Today I am writing up the english outline of the class (which will be translated to Chinese in a bit), and figured I would blog it as well. Let me know if you have any feedback:
