Greg Kirksey’s Session(s):
12:10 pm–12:55 pm — Wednesday, October 16, 2019
Landscape contractors and golf course superintendents can be some of the most notoriously difficult audiences to find, reach and engage on social media. There are very few usable interests that apply only these audiences that can also be used for social media targeting. And once you do figure out how to reach them, the threshold for relevant content is extremely high – this is an audience with a low tolerance for frivolity and a lot of expertise in their field.
SiteOne Landscape Supply is the nation’s largest and only national landscape supply company with over 500 branches in the U.S. and Canada. They wanted and needed a social media presence to match. Working together with the account team at Swanson Russell, the two companies have taken a brand from scratch to one of the most engaging brands on social media in the green industry. And we did it by bringing to life what could be considered some pretty dry topics – agronomic product applications, safety, and business tips.
