Tara Collins is the Director of Communications and Resource Development at RUPCO, a provider of and advocate for quality, affordable housing and community development programs aimed to provide opportunity and revitalize communities.
For 36 years, RUPCO’s 501-c-3 nonprofit agency, has created and maintained quality, sustainable housing and rental opportunities, inspired understanding and acceptance of affordable housing initiatives, fostered community development and revitalization, and provided opportunity to people to improve their living standards.
RUPCO prioritizes marketing through social media in order to reach the bulk of individuals they work with. They are active on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and LinkedIn.
Tara has struggled with creating new content, repurposing old content, and managing the colleagues that have permission to post on the social channels. In order to rival these and other issues that Tara faced, she decided to start using Lately in order to keep RUPCO’s content engaging, track performance across channels, and post consistently to their social media channels.
Lately helps Tara generate social posts from blogs and newsletters related to RUPCO and bulk schedule them out to increase awareness and drive traffic to RUPCO’s website. Further, Tara is now able to preview, approve, reject or edit content by piece or in bulk. The issues that Tara originally dealt with on a daily basis began to disappear!

In addition to Lately’s features, Tara has been especially grateful for Lately’s onboarding and customer success team. Every week, Lauren, Lately’s Customer Success Manager, streams a live how-to video on a specific Lately feature. Tara said, “I think the office hours are awesome. That totally put us more into a power user mode, verses kind of limping along. I love that they’re recorded so if I need to go back and find out how to do something, I’m able to.”
Tara, a Lately user for almost 2 years, has seen her social media marketing transform into an efficient and effective system.
