I’m always looking for good, innovative ways to use Social Media tools and today I would like to introduce you to an awesome project using Twitter. We found this great Project in the little town of Enderby BC – population of 2900. We traveled to Enderby to talk to some of the people involved so I could tell you the story of this unusual Social Media project.

They seem to come in waves – but a lot of them return over and over again: Facebook scams. The other day I asked on my Facebook Page:

But! Remember that it’s people that make purchasing decisions, not search engines and not analytics. After all the glitter is gone, consumers as well as B2B (business to business) decision makers are human beings – Social Media works when we manage to establish a direct or indirect personal connection.
