Street Walking: Help Them Promote You

Facebook does it.

Twitter does it.

Google Plus and LinkedIn do it, too.

What do they do? They have badges that their members can easily embed on their own sites to help increase their following on the various social networks.

Badges are relatively easy to create as long as you know some basic HTML. There are several benefits to creating a badge and having others post it on their sites, including:

There are many reasons you can use to create a badge and ask others to place it on their sites.

At the Bonfire, we have badges that our members can create and embed on their sites to increase their following on the community. The badges also help us increase our brand recognition and referral traffic.

Here’s an example of our badge:

  1. I’m actually searching the site to find the location of that Bonfire badge so I can put it on my site but…can’t…find it?

    • Hi Morgan…I guess it might have been helpful if we told you that…

      Login to the community, then scroll to the bottom of any page. The link to the badges is in the footer.
