Who We Are

Contact Us


CITIZEN exists because we saw a need in the senior living space.

Our parent company, POD Marketing, was approached by an automation software provider to help their senior living clients implement marketing automation strategies.

As we worked with these communities, we started to recognize a need for transparent and cost-effective marketing strategies that take their unique needs and goals into consideration. As solution-focused people, we wanted to fill that gap.

Today, we are proud to provide senior living communities with ethical and empathetic marketing strategies tailor-made for your industry. We know our methods work, and we would love to show you how.

Our Core Values

We’ve all got different skill sets, and we use them to highlight and elevate each other’s work. When all is said and done, you get a refined product that goes way above and beyond the industry standard.

Integrity means doing the right thing, even when no one is looking. As individuals and as a company, we hold ourselves accountable. We are determined to do what’s right, even when it’s not easy.

There’s always an opportunity to grow and shine! Our team never focuses on the obstacles in our way. We focus on finding an innovative solution. And along the way, we’ll identify opportunities to improve our processes.

If there’s a better way to get the job done, we’re determined to find it. Our team continuously audits and optimized our processes, products, and services to give you the best possible results. Nothing excites us more than progress.
