In March, Chiquita launched a new social media platform called Eat a Chiquita
Although Chiquita is the top search response along with the majority of search results I believe it would be beneficial for Chiquita to invest in Google Adwords, they could also work on their SEO because when typing bananas they are about 7th on the search results list. For launching a new social media campaign in March, I believe they have a lot to learn on how to market their new found tools. Increasing ad’s during seasons of different fruits would also be benefit marketing.
