Any Mistakes?

If anything on this list is not accurate or needs to be changed, please let me know.

Let’s Connect

Let’s get to know each other more and build a strong social business network. I would love to chat with all of you. Send me a DM @CindyKing.

My Skype ID: I’m always easy to reach on Skype, weekdays & late afternoons my time here in France. BUT I do like to know who you are first. I have a French IP address, a woman’s name and get plagued with North African “friendship” requests from cultures with indirect communication practices. This can become a huge time waster unless I screen my Skype contacts thoroughly. So please let me know your real name and get straight to the point when you ask to connect on Skype.

Cross-Cultural Twitter Interviews

The primary reason why I conduct Cross-Cultural Twitter Interviews is to get to know everyone on this list a bit more. And I only interview people on this list. I am slowly reaching out to everyone here to ask them if they would like to do a Twitter Interview.  You can see all of the Cross-Cultural Twitter Interviews here.  And if you are on the list above and want to do one with me soon, please send me a DM.

Do You Know Of Any Other Interesting International Or Cross-Cultural Tweeters?

If so, please introduce us. I always enjoy a good conversation and sharing new perspectives on cultural and international business skills.  The best way to contact me is @CindyKing.

Personal Networking List

Sometimes people with fantastic backgrounds ask me to add their names to this list. But when I check out their Twitter feed, I don’t see any tweets on any of my favorite subjects.  I do have quite a few favorite tweet topics – see the full list at the top of this post – and when you look carefully at the list above you’ll see that I there is a very wide variety. But for these rather pushy people let me very clearly state:

This is my personal list.  These are people I like on Twitter because  they share content I consider useful for others in developing cultural and international skills.

If you want to get on the list, the best way is to say hello to me on Twitter and talk to me about anything related to the subjects I like to tweet about.  I’m here to network with people and I like fun people.

Regular Updates To Keep The List A Fun Social Networking Tool

Unfortunately a few people originally on this list have abused of my generosity.  This is not a free marketing service.  It is just my personal choice of people I like and want to network with.  In practice this means I infrequently go through this list and delete people who:

  • Request multiple changes to their information here beyond normal info changes
  • Ask me to give them multiple links back to their site
  • Are not interested in actually connecting with other people on Twitter interested, which defeats the whole purpose of this list

We all get busy and the content in our Twitter feed may change. Up until now I have not deleted any of the people who have changed the topics they tweet about… but this may happen in the future if it appears to be a permanent change in direction.

Any Fun Ideas To Share?

  • What other category would you like to see on this Cross-Cultural & International Twitter list for more cross-cultural or international insights?
  • Do you have any fun ideas on how to network better with this Cross-Cultural & International Twitter list?

I would love to hear your ideas on how we can connect and have more fun networking. Please share them in the comment sections below or DM me on Twitter.

  • Michael E. Cantone

    Hi Cindy,
    I am a future entrepreneur or marketer, writer but obviously confused a bit. I am Baby Boomer who worked as an electronic technician for 2/3 of my life and a computer nerd throughout my career who always wanted to write.

    It is interesting that you do what you do.

    Here is the dilemma and question.

    I have an interest in a product that is made in Sweden that serves my personal needs as far as getting exercise while at the same time would be useful to others like me to go places without an auto or an electric scooter.

    What is it?

    It is an Armbike.

    My feeling like I say is personal but it will have huge growth in the USA and around the world.

    Who is the market for?

    There are 10,000 Baby Boomers turning 50 every day.

    What is the dilemma?

    The companies web page is a dead end.

    Please let me know what you think.

    • Cindy

      Hello Michael,

      You appear to be stuck in a very common place.

      You need to get in contact with this company. This means research. Just keep asking questions. You need to identify the right questions and look for the right person to approach.

      Stuck? Think some more. What would you do if this was a company in your own country? Who would you contact?

      You will probably need to pick up the phone… or skype.

      Also, you are not very clear about your own role in this. Export or international business? Do you understand the different roles in each of these and how it works?

      I would do some exploratory research. Get on the phone and ask this company what they already have in place to sell their products in your country, what their plans are for international business. And then take it from there.

      People often approach me to tell me they have a fantastic product and they are looking for international clients. Some actually say they would pay me a very small percentage for any sales without first checking whether the offer is appropriate.

      First you need to understand business in general, the work involved and the value of your business offer. Read these two articles – things are not quite so cut in stone as they used to be, but this usually helps people to get more focused and learn how to ask the right questions:

      - 7 Traditional Paths To International Business Development
      - 5 Traditional Marketing Steps To Become An International Business

      If you do not want to do the grunt work yourself and still want to invest in an international business, you will probably decide to set up some sort of an export business or trade representation. You need to research the different players in export business and approach the one to fit your needs. Have a look at and the international resources on the Small Business Administration website, as well as the resource link below.

      If you want to learn how to use cross-cultural and international web marketing to get international sales, check out my other website Get International Clients. This is an 8 step road map and an Action Guide.

      I do not offer export services – my core expertise lies in international marketing & sales – I know how to find the way to position products to enter new countries and different cultural markets.

      You can find more resources on Get International Clients to get you started on your research.

      And once you have decided what you are going to do, I can help you with the new market penetration strategy and initial marketing.

  • Jennifer Larson

    Hi Cindy, I just started following you on twitter, and look forward to hearing what you have to say about marketing. I just started my own business and have a brand new client. I’m eager to learn as much as there is to about all kinds of marketing, especially on the international level. The world is getting smaller and smaller…isn’t it? Can’t wait to learn from you.

    • Cindy

      Hello Jennifer,

      Glad to connect through Twitter.

      Yes, international business can be exciting. If you are ready for a process, have a look at the International Sales Road Map on my other website Get International Clients.

  • Jules

    Hi Cindy – I really like what you are doing with your website, these are important issues for companies to address that too often are not addressed. Keep it up!

    I see some opportunity for some joint work – I’m interested in how companies build the infrastructure to message cross-channel and your angle on cross-culture sounds an interesting mix- to me at least! For example are there different cultural approaches in the way that for example SMS is used. Should customer communications adopt a greater formality within one or another culture?

    • Cindy

      Thank you Jules!

      Email me at and let’s discuss further on the phone. Cindy

  • Nairobian Perspective

    this is quite a good web resource, im glad i stumbled upon this site!

    • Cindy

      Glad you like it! Please let me know of any other interesting international folks to follow on Twitter! …and any other international business resources too.

  • Dragos Roua

    Hey Cindy,

    Thanks for the mention as an “interesting” guy on twitter, I really appreciate it. I admire what you do with this cross-cultural communication blog, and after reading this post I also realized why you’ll be so successful in this field: it’s your passion. Passions don’t lie :-)

    • Cindy

      Hi Dragos,

      I have to work on finding a better word to describe everything you bring to us on Twitter – it is definitely much more than “interesting”. You actually amaze me by with the warmth you convey. Maybe that is part of YOUR passion that is easy to see :)

  • Carrie

    Hi Cindy,

    What a terrific list of resources! Some of these folks are already favorites and some are new to me. I’m really impressed with the quality of your content here and I look forward to delving in over the next few days. Thank you!

    • Cindy

      Hi Carrie,

      Glad you like the list :)

      Please remember to share the Twitter handles of anyone you think I should add. I’m particularly interested in people who tweet and share links on cross-cultural topics and things that could be helpful in a very broad way to international business and the skills you need to succeed internationally.

  • Bonnie Koenig

    Cindy -
    Thank you for sharing this list. Focusing on cross-cultural issues (primarily for NGOs) myself, these are the networks I am also looking for on social media. As others have noted, many of your list, I already know, some are new – a good combination. Look forward to getting to know you as well.
