Uplift Social talks expansion, partnerships, and New Domains

Uplift Social is a new but rapidly-growing contender in the social media management game. Owen Smith, the company’s co-founder, recently spoke with us here at to discuss how the business got its start and what’s in store for the future.

How and when did Uplift Social get started?

Uplift Social was founded back in December 2014 by myself and my co-founder and CTO, Ainsley. With the explosion of social media in the last few years it has never been a better time for businesses to start growing their community and promoting themselves through social. We see a huge opportunity for growth and expansion in the social media management and marketing space—that’s why we jumped in and started Uplift Social!

Why SQL is Important for Marketers

This is a guest post from Justin Mares, the co-author of the upcoming Traction Book. He formerly ran growth at Exceptional Cloud Services, before they were acquired by Rackspace in 2013. 

Today’s best marketers and growth hackers are data-driven. They are able to pull data about their marketing campaigns, and use that data to get a clear picture of what’s working (and what’s not).

A key component of being data-driven is the ability to quickly collect data. For pulling data from customer databases, there are few better tools out there than SQL, and none that are more popular.

There are no more results.
