    Than you for your comment, Morris. I’ll keep that in mind.

    One important thing in my view is that in social media marketing it is not as important how big your company is but to how many people you are talking to.

    Think about how you communicate with your friends and try to bring that to social media.

    Love your site and really enjoyed reading through “Social Media Weekend: Social Media Case Studies”. Should you do a part two, would you consider concentrating on case studies on small businesses (under 20 employees)? Of the 14 million businesses in the US, over 80% have less than 20 employees. Although many of the points made from case studies of larger companies are transferable, there are dynamics smaller companies need to contend with that are not found as frequently with larger companies (i.e. dedicated man power, level of expertise, company name recognition, etc.). Many thanks.
