This was a particularly challenging account as Facebook is not a social platform that naturally fit with the target audience. However, I was able to come up with and write social posts that performed well engaged the audience and grew the following. I also worked with the account manager at Pernod Ricard and helped build the relationship, to the point where she requested I continue to create content with them on a freelance basis after leaving the agency.

Example of a week's worth of posts featuring products, lifestyle and PR
