Thank you for all of those that voted! We got 232 votes, as well as many tweets throughout the week. This blog has now been up for a week and has reached almost 400 hits. I hope that it has helped you learn more about some businesses in Utah, and those that are proactive and able to find ways to engage their followers. Please give this blog, as well as @downrightdave, a follow to keep updated weekly on the best of the best.
Of the five businesses, four made several efforts in gaining support in this poll. When I was creating this weeks poll I was a little hesitant to include Maggie Moos, because they had over 6,000 followers, six times as many as Iceberg, which had the second most. Maggie Moos was a major chain, as opposed to the others which were more local, or only in a few states. I thought that if they put in any effort, they would easily be able to win. Boy was I disappointed. They received 2 votes, which equals less than 0.0003% of their follower count. Compare this to Coneys who had votes equal to 0.38% of their follower count.
Sub Zero lead most of the way. They sent out 10 tweets throughout the week and really took this poll seriously, but in the end Coneys was the winner. Coneys also sent out several tweets, posted it on their Facebook, and had several fans RT or post it as well.
Coneys finished very strong, I don't know if they passed out fliers or something to everyone on dates tonight, but whatever it was, it got them just enough votes. These two companies both did a very very good job. So congratulations to Coneys for finishing first, Sub Zero second, Iceberg third, then Sammy's in fourth. As mentioned above, Maggie Moos was a fail of epic proportions. I will make sure I never set foot inside their business.
Final Poll Results
Sub Zero: 77
Maggie Moo's: 2
Total Votes: 228
