New Social Media Tool Available from McHutchison

McHutchison has created its #GrowYourSocial campaign, a free 52-week social media program, to help IGCs and growers engage with their customers on Facebook along with the flexibility to leverage the content on other platforms such as Instagram and email campaigns, among others.

The program is designed to provide garden centers a full year of social media posts to keep customers and potential new customers informed on everything from gardening inspiration to planting tips.

Plant varieties and holidays are highlighted throughout the 52-week plan which features written copy and high-resolution images to be included with each post.

“We all have those busy times of the year where it seems impossible to dedicate time to create targeted marketing communication to effectively build your brand,” said Chris Berg, director of marketing for McHutchison.

“This #GrowYourSocial campaign gives you 52 weeks of pre-programmed posts to make sure that you’ve got social media going all year long.”

The #GrowYourSocial program provides 52 weeks of social media content that they can pre-schedule and incorporate into a robust program that educates and entertains their audiences. Followers will also be encouraged to participate and engage with retailers on a number of things like sharing their own photos of their favorite plants they like to grow or hope to purchase.

There are plenty of helpful tips in the #GrowYourSocial campaign that walk you through the process of scheduling posts to increase follower participation on your company’s social media channels. For a brief video preview of the #GrowYourSocial program, click here to learn more.

Any garden center that wishes to get a USB drive with the full #GrowYourSocial program can contact their McHutchison sales representative or to call the main office at 800.943.2230.
