Zapwater Communications is retained by the West Town Chamber to help generate publicity and awareness for the commercial corridors. The What's Happening in West Town newsletter is a showcase of monthly promos, events and news items pertaining to local businesses. At the beginning of each month, the Chamber will send out a Call for Info email to all Members asking for your content to promote for the following month.
Your news will get blasted on our social media accounts and possibly included in the quarterly West Town press releases.
With the direction of the Marketing Committee, Zapwater Communications will be issuing press releases monthly with specific focuses as well as continually posting to the West Town Facebook page, Instagram page, and Twitter account.
