Organic Pizza Co
@OrganicPizzaCo
Enjoy the #Colorado sunshine today on our patio for lunch – a slice of scrumptious OPC pizza and @Oogave soda for $3.99
Why it works: This tweet lets Twitter followers know that the restaurant’s patio is open for business while at the same time highlighting a daily special featuring a local soda. The only thing missing in this post is the all-too-important contact number or Web site. The shop does offer its Web site as part of its profile description.

Cloverleaf Pizza: Get an $8.99 Large Deep Dish Square One Topping Pizza Special from the Carryout & Delivery locations today – Don’t wait promotion ends March 31st! Saint Clair Shores 586-445-2810 or Clinton Twp 586-286-9030
Why it works: Cloverleaf is right on target with this post. It makes an offer at a great price, gives an expiration date, provides a call to action and gives phone numbers for each location.

360 Pizzeria: Last month our Beer Dinner sold out…don’t miss your chance to attend this month’s. We’re hoping for the same enthusiasm this time around, so call 360-260-3605 to reserve a spot!”
Why it works: Letting fans know that an event was so popular that it sold out is a great way to establish excitement and a “can’t miss it” vibe. Providing the phone number also entices fans to call right away or risk losing out. One crucial piece is missing — the date for the next beer dinner. Even without a date, this post is still buzzworthy for beer lovers.
