Dont think it does cost 'loads'..

With ITV being regionalised often you find complete ad breaks given over to 'small' businesses in your local area, which, I presume, is offered out for less than the usual going rate?

Here in Granada land we often see ads for local car sellers, caravan sellers, private hotels etc etc. Not usually during peak time but during lesser watched programmes..

A bit like you used to see in the cinema with Pearl and Dean..

Par Par Par Par Par Par Par Par...etc  :D

Maybe given the 'close' proximity of Busters three clubs, a collective advert covering all three might be worth it?

Or maybe, heaven forbid, the sport does one as a collective and goes national with it!:rolleyes:

I'm not disagreeing at all with you,i'm just saying we see it on a Sky channel.I couldn't remember which Sky channel it was as i don't take to much notice of the programmes she watches.But she realiably informs me it was Witness.They must be pushing the boat out to push an ad on Sky as well as ITV.

I've seen Lynn advertised on TV a few times ( for speedway), many years ago. I'm going back a while though. I was probably a teenager, i'm 55 now :)

On another note, I see Lewis scored 11 from 4 yesterday for Eastie against Somerset :t:

Because they believe that the miracle - bring everyone to our door is - social media. It's nearly free so very appealing to promoters. Ha Ha, nothing could be further from the truth at least for speedway. Pearl & Dean and regional TV is a much better bet ( but you have to pay for it ).

If it was ITV then it would be Anglia West ( Anglia is split into 2). Not as expensive as you would think.   Sky advertising  I would suggest is using something called Adsmart, which targets its audience.

You have to pay for social media advertising as well if you want it to work, a proper campaign isnt 'nearly free' but can be much more cost effective than TV
