How Advertising Works in Chippenham 5


  1. Allow your store's Head Office to dream up a new marketing campaign
  2. Display the promotional material you've been given at the roundabout where your store is located
  3. Wait for a blogger with a camera to notice it and almost crash their car because they groaned so loudly
  4. Et voila!

This is the fifth item of an occasional series - some more are in the pipeline - the previous one can be found here.

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.
