Afternoon all

I am trying to help promote the site through other channels at the moment and it would help me to know how you all first found out about DetectingWales.com

Theres a Press Release going out next week to the trade publications and Welsh newspapers (one from each area of Wales), some more merchandising being launched and a few more ideas. Does anyone have any other ideas.

Cheers
Neil

When I was president of the Wrexham Metal Detecting Club we had a logo printed on  cloth so that it could be stitched on to our jackets if we went to a Rally.
This is the logo here. It is 120mm x 73mm and stood out like a sore thumb.Mind you, it was anly 1 then to buy at cost so I would expect it to be more now.

Neil,i think the main channel for most of us has been other web sites and forum's,the advert in the trade press is definately a good idea,but i'm not so sure about general press advertising Roll Eyes it could drum up interest but also cause problems at the same time,just a thought.

Yeh I saw that post on UKDN, the poor guy was told off by UKDN admin for advertising DetectingWales without asking permission!  Sad

Ahh, so my UKDN posts worked. Grin It was me they were telling off! I had meant to email them as I did all the other sites when I went on my advertising purge - forgot to mention it to them.

Thanks for the replies.

It wasn't by accident, millsy, putting the DetectingWales video of the Cardiff Scan Club Rally on Youtube was all part of my brilliant marketing strategy  Grin. It's nice to see it had some effect. Thanks for the feedback, we'll try to upload a few more DetectingWales.com videos to Youtube.
