Sparkloft’s Current Line Up Website features services, clients, an "about" section and the Sparkloft blog. There are Twitter and YouTube streams on the front page as well as recent press releases and recent blog posts.

Sparkloft needs space to showcase its success
and display resources for clients and potential clients. Posting frequency is somewhat inconsistent and engagement is low. However, there is a fast response time for inquiries and the the look and feel of the page is consistent with the website. Blog categories include events, fun stuff, press releases, resources and thoughts. The most common category posted about is "thoughts," followed closely by "resources." Posts are written by various members of Team Sparkloft. Sparkloft has a Google+ page that is not updated regularly (last update Nov 2011). In the past it has been populated by news stories relevant to the industry. Sparkloft's YouTube account has a substantial amount of videos and views. Although new uploads are inconsistent, videos are related to our brand. There is a good foundation currently to work up from. Sparkloft's boards fit into three main categories: client content, social media best practices and for fun. The account demonstrates Sparkloft's personality while also showcasing the company's forward-thinking clients and content. However, repinning and uploading content is inconsistent, happening once every 1-3 weeks. Sent tweets from the account are consistent and there is a good combination of engagement with other accounts and posting industry-related articles and original content. Likes: 2,342 Followers: 1,325
