Important Differences Between GoDaddy Social and Social High Rise
Social High Rise has expertly designed its service exclusively for restaurants & bars. Since 2012 they’ve partnered with restaurants to address the unique challenges restaurants face when trying to attract, retain, and build relationships with diners. GoDaddy Social has no particular specialty and offers services for a wide range of industries.
Quality of Content
Social High Rise creates original content from scratch that is unique to the culture, personality, goals, vision, and voice of the business it represents. For a restaurant, this is extremely important since the primary purpose of having a social media presence is to engage your customers authentically. GoDaddy Social shares generic industry-related posts from a pre-created library which is intended to be funny or witty.
Social Media Philosophy in Practice
Social High Rise believes that social media should be used as a tool for delighting customers, showcasing community involvement/support, championing loyal followers, and utilizing critical feedback to shape and improve business practices. This philosophy is deeply rooted in our best-practices and the quality of the work we perform. GoDaddy Social uses automation for the bulk of the work they perform, which often undermines the very nature of social media.
When you sign up with Social High Rise, you get paired up with a dedicated account manager who becomes your personal social media partner. They are available via phone, email, and even text. For restaurateurs, this is important due to their busy, and often unpredictable schedules. GoDaddy Social currently provides an email and phone number for your account manager and a nationwide support number to call if you need to talk with someone about your account.
