local content curation

It's not polite to only talk about yourself on social media. That's where local insider content comes in. Each picture was hand-selected by the Commit social media team, overseen by me. Bonus points if the photo was from a local, photographer or influencer, establishing a relationship with someone who could promote the brand down the road.
