12 Days of Content, Day 5: Five Birthday Posts


On the fifth day of content, HootSuite shares with you…

5 birthday posts!

In late November HootSuite celebrated its fifth birthday. It’s because of you, our users, fans and followers, our ambassadors, certified professionals, partners, and all of the many more folks around the globe who’ve been with us at various stages along the way, that we’ve accomplished so much in such a short time.

To celebrate the occasion, we created five #ThanksFor5 blog posts to thank our users and exemplify what has made this company successful. Here’s they are:

What does a startup business need to succeed? Is it the concept or the product? The financing? The connections?

See what they’ve learned over 5 years and enjoy some awesome gifs while you’re at it.

Celebrating 5 Years of Global Growth

In just 5 years, HootSuite has localized in 15 different languages and has users in over 100 different countries. Since 2011, the HootUp and Brand Ambassador programs have successfully spread HootSuite’s unique culture and brand through grassroots advocacy and awareness. Add on to that the thousands of HootKits that are mailed every year, and it’s safe to say it’s been an incredible journey of growth. To celebrate, we highlighted some of our favourite global memories.
