Chamber’s Creative Professionals Committee eschews web marketing in favor of sidewalk dancer

In January, I blogged about the planning for tomorrow night’s Jailhouse Rock’ auction which is raising funds for an upgrade on Northfield’s holiday decorations. I thought for sure that the Chamber’s Creative Professionals Committee would have a page up on the Chamber’s website by now, or maybe a quick-and-dirty blog for the event like the Arts Crawl folks have done.

But in what I have to assume was a strategically creative move, they turned up their collective noses at those old fashioned marketing tools like blogs and Twitter and instead, they’ve found a guy to prance about like Elvis on the sidewalk in front of the Grand. Brilliant!

If you want info on the event, best to check with one of Northfield’s primo bloggers.
