Platform Growth Opportunity

Weekly Supper Club Events: Community Involvement

Post to Facebook and Instagram. Weekly community events like Supper Club demonstrate Citizen Cider's love and commitment to the community. With several long tables and no wait-staff assigning seating, they encourage a community meal.


Current strategy doesn't include any original content on Twitter feed, just links from Facebook and Instagram. With the company's creative and clever product names, they should utilize clever tweets.
