Blog of the Year vote: social networking in action

20 Jan

We were not surprised to learn we were in the running for Fuel Lines’ Ad Agency Blog of the Year.

As the September winner of the poll, we were automatically selected. We now find ourselves with 6 days to somehow win this thing against 11 other monthly winners, all from the U.S.A.

Please take a second to vote for us here.

Why should a small town Canadian agency bother to try and win against big U.S. agencies?

Well aside from the exposure and PR that might accompany a win and the vote itself, the poll creates an equal playing field to show how well these agencies get and can use social media effectively to acquire votes.

Size and geography is relatively immaterial. Oh sure, a bigger agency has more folks working the phones. But the best social media strategy will win.

We can TELL you we know what we’re doing in social media. But that and $2.50 will get you on the bus.

Winning a poll like this will put the bus fare where our mouths are.

If you can help us by voting and sharing this post with everyone you have ever met, we would be very grateful.

Tweet it, or Like it or Share it on Facebook. And leave a comment for us if you have the time.

Go Canucks Go!
