Danielle Moon, Sales & Marketing Coordinator at Minneapolis Northwest said, “We held a similar campaign last year called, Take A Closer Look Tuesday and wanted to change the name and day of the campaign to keep our followers interested. We felt this type of social media campaign keeps our followers up to date with what the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area has to offer, especially when posting photos of locations.”
