Location
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA

Case Study

My name is Davis Baer, and I am the co-founder of OneUp, a social media scheduling tool that helps business make more money and automates time-consuming tasks. OneUp allows you to schedule Google My Business posts, Facebook posts, Instagram posts, Twitter posts (and schedule Twitter threads), as well as schedule LinkedIn posts.

  • We have bloggers who create evergreen blog posts (meaning those posts will still be relevant months and years down the road). Before, they would share it once on social media, then just hope that SEO would bring them ongoing traffic. Now, they set their blog posts to repeat every few months, resurfacing the content for anyone who missed it before, and giving it another chance to be shared and take off.
