Welcome aboard!

I'm Frank Vaculin, CEO of Spoke. Welcome to our blog.

First, I want to say thank you to the millions of people who use Spoke every month. Over the last two years, Spoke’s community has grown tremendously and many of our members have asked us to start a blog to exchange ideas and feedback. We think this is a great idea because we have a lot of work to do, and your feedback and ideas will be crucial. We have a lot to learn from you and hope that you will be open with your comments, both good and critical. Our commitment is that we will listen, learn and exchange ideas about how to make Spoke better.

Over the next few months there will be some big changes on the Spoke site. We will be talking about these changes as we release them and we really want to hear back from you. You have also told us about some other topics that are important to you, so we’ll also be talking about a broad range of subjects such as privacy, professional networking, trends in the industry, the quality of our data, and tips and tricks to get the most out of Spoke. We will also be debunking some of the myths about Spoke. Of course, over time, the blog will define itself through interactions with you.

I’m looking forward to learning from and with you.

All the best,



  1. Thank you! I am delighted to find this. My best wishes for your continued growth and success. Bless-Joan

  2. I'm looking forward toearning from you =) J.

  3. I was a member of spoke before and had deleted my account because it was too difficult to use. I recently rejoined after changes were made. I think the improvements made the site a lot easier to use! Keep up the good work, I like it!

    Marketing Through The Apocalypse

    Jay Dunn, VP of Marketing, Lane Bryant

    The economy is a mess and retailers are scrambling to find innovative ways to attract and maintain customers and sales. Can blending social media tools with traditional marketing be one of ways to bring your business back to life?

    Jay Dunn will debunk the hype over new media and social networking and connect the tools that actually work to drive your brand.

    Dunn’s trademark style – insightful, eclectic, never long between laughs – lends itself to an engaging and sometimes provocative commentary on social media, retail marketing, the economy, and the current challenges facing us all.

  5. I have sent several requests over the last several weeks to have my company information corrected.

    Someone is listed as co-owner and that person has never had anything to do with my company.

    I don't understand why I have not had any response to my repeated requests to remove this person's name from my business information.
