HubSpot and Marketing Charts have released their Marketing Data Box, a quarterly collection of practical marketing tools ready for professional use. At Bonfire we are data junkies so we sorted through the stats with a fine tooth comb and summarized the key takeaways from the slide deck. We have also embedded the full slide deck for your reference.

It is never a bad thing when great work is recognized.
Bonfire was thrilled to receive a nomination for the 2011 ‘Best ROI Under 25K’ award at this year’s Social Media Awards in Portland, Oregon. We were surprised and delighted when host Daniel Baldwin called our name as the winner!
The winning campaign involved Gresham Toyota, a long-standing client and one of the top Toyota dealerships in the Pacific Northwest. In an industry known for pushy salesmen and “hard” selling, we were able to take a step back and highlight what made Gresham Toyota stand out from other dealerships: outstanding, pressure-free customer service. We built an engaged community, turned existing customers into brand advocates, and increased inbound sales calls by an impressive 600%. We were especially pleased to be receiving an award in the “Best ROI’ category, illustrating our commitment to outstanding business results for our clients. Read the full case study to learn more.

This post started out as a tribute to May Day – searching for creative ways labor unions and anti-union supporters were using Facebook. I had recently read an article about how Facebook could potentially REPLACE labor unions and excitedly went to work looking for well-organized, active pages. What I found instead was a handful of pages that seemed to have little in the way of followers and even less interaction. So, I changed the topic of this post to covering politicians and political groups that DO have a following on Facebook. Below I have outlined the top US politicians on Facebook and what we can learn from their pages.
Union Woes Continue on Facebook
If there ARE active labor union themed pages out there, they are hidden deep within Facebook’s inept search function. I was able to find this page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Union-Labor-Works – one of the few union pages I could find with more than 10 fans. The page had only one wall post and 233 ‘likers.’ There were no custom tabs and I could find very little information about the organization. No photos, no videos, nada. There WERE active groups and events surrounding union topics and perhaps these Facebook tools work better to provide an on-line rallying cry. continue
