Catch the fever of Butler’s #socialMadness

The only cure is more retweets…or likes

If you can read this, it means you can vote for Butler in the Wichita Business Journal’s (@ICTBizJournal) Social Media Madness contest.

In short, we’re competing against seven other local businesses in the Elite Eight of a competition to decide who has the dominant presence on sites like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+. While we have presence on all these sites, we’re only focusing on Facebook ( and Twiter ( or @butlercc) for this competition. We’re ramping up to engage as many people as we possibly can before the Top 8 are whittled down to the Final Four on June 25.

So what does that mean for you?

You can help. Get over to our social media pages and start interacting! Retweets, Favorites, Likes, Comments and Shares are the bread and butter of this competition, not the number of fans or followers we have. So, it really is important that you mingle with individual posts. Comment if you think something is clever. Share it if you think it’s hilarious. If you aren’t impressed, Like it anyway, just because you’re so nice.

But I don’t have a Facebook or Twitter and I solemnly refuse to be social.

Okay, okay. But you can still vote for us on the WBJ’s #socialMadness page:

It’s a little complicated, but well worth the effort. Click that link. Now press the tab that says “Large Companies” …that’s us. We’re head-to-head with INTRUST Arena and we’ll need all the votes you can muster. They allow you to click “Vote” daily, so if you have the time, we’ll soar to the top. If you want, you can even share that link on your personal page to let your friends know where and how to vote. We won’t stop you.

I’m still really confused about all this.

No worries. We’ve got social media experts on hand to help. Just shoot an email to Jon Pic ( or Hayley Powers ( and we’ll right your course. Remember, we only have until June 25 to make the most of Round 2. Don’t dally!
