How Advertising Works in Chippenham 2


1. Create advertisement
2. Decide to place it in Chippenham, where it's quicker to drive to Newquay than go by air
3. Wait for a Blogger with a camera to spot it at the local train station
4. Et voila!

  1. surely Newquay is nearer to Chippenham than Gatwick is?

    Well actually no - according to my route-planner Ch-Nq is 192 miles; Ch-Gat is 117 miles but Gat-Nq is 297 miles so Ch-Nq via Gat is 414 miles.

  5. It's just plain daft Liz. The travel to Gatwick+flight time and the quickest train journey are about the same time, so the airline must be targetting on price rather than convenience!

    As for a percentage, I don't think they'd like my cynical take on it Nessa ;)

I love reading your comments and welcome thoughtful conversations :)

Comments aiming to link back and give credence to commercial websites will be composted!

4/4/2014 - Anonymous comment spam came back with a vengeance today, so sadly I've had to halt this facility for a while for the sake of commenters who like to read what the genuine follow-up comments say.

If you're having problems leaving comments, you can contact me using the Contact Form at the foot of this page, or via vegplotting at gmail dot com, or @malvernmeet if a quick tweet is more convenient for you. That way I can get things sorted.
