With the advent of new social media tools, downtown merchants are building better relationships and customer service. The popular tools in use include Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, eVite, blogs, and web sites. “It’s extremely effective marketing”, said one merchant at the Uptown/Downtown meeting.
Uptown/Downtown is a new monthly meeting (each third Thursday) for downtown business owners and guests to socialize. The event begins at 1 minute after five – 5:01 PM. Businesses take turns as hosts. This is a social event with great food.
