Partner with UpShoot to Increase your Social Media Presence
At last count, there are now NINE major social networks. As time consuming as they may appear, you don’t need to jump on the posting bandwagon for all of them.
Step 1: We do recommend researching and becoming familiar with all the popular social media platforms.
Step 2: Select up to three that line up with:
1. Who you want to communicate with directly
2. Explains who and why you are unique
3. Allows you to tell stories that engage your readers
Step 3: Create a strategic plan of action on what to do, where and when to execute and then measure.

Out of the social media platforms listed on these graphics, UpShoot currently employs Facebook,Houzz, Instagram, Jalbum On-Line Photo Catalog, LinkedIn, Pinterest and Twitter to promote plants to garden writers, media, consumers, retailers, growers and green industry parties. Follow us on one or all!
It’s important to note that we add one social media platform at a time. As we become knowledgeable and comfortable in posting as new sites emerge, we also evaluate if we’re reaching our target audience on a regular basis.

Instead of telling the exact same story on all social media platforms, UpShoot customizes the content depending on the demographic we are trying to reach. This takes extra time to make posts more ‘organic’ in nature, but when we review post reports we can see the differences even an email title can make on open rates and click thrus.
“If you went to the Super Bowl, when you got home you would tell the same story in a slightly different way to your wife, your mom, and your best friend. Why? Because they are different people who each have their own individual relationship with you who would be interested in different aspects of your story. The same is true for the different Social Media networks.”
