Yes, it would be useful to know, although in marketing terms, all our fine efforts will only raise awareness, interest and desire. What we need is action i.e. ticket sales.

But I feel that some ticket sales will have arisen from this, albeit that we have only been 'on this' for a week and I feel that conversion may take a little longer. We need to switch from awareness raising to activities that close sales soon Al. Bearing in mind your day job, I'm sure you know more about this than I do.

But, I too would be interested to learn if there has been any early impact on sales and how far we have to go.

Hello Peter

You're doing a fantastic job with all this promotional work, I'm sure that it's having the desired effect and I think I'm safe in saying that we all appreciate the time and effort you have been expending.
I'll follow your advice and re email Mark Radcliffe and I've just dropped a message to Julian Cope who as we know admires Bill and isn't shy when it comes to publicising something he cares about.

If only I could have got to the gig :(

I spoke with Adrian at Opium earlier today and the last figure he'd been given by the tv company was 90 tickets sold. So, another 35 to go if it is to be a sell out.

That's really good though Bill! I mean that last bit shouldn't be hard to sell out!

Excellent news - I am expecting that, since we only really started this last Wednesday, that there is some lag time between 'desire' and 'action', so I hope some ticket sales will come through along with everything else being done by the pros.

However, 35 is still a reasonable number to go and so, I urge all the Nelsonians who have contributed to this phenomenon publicly and privately to keep the good work up over the next two weeks. I shall be networking the various ideas that have been sent to me and generally being a nuisance right up till the end :( , even if we get the occasional set back as we had today.

I'll be looking out for Sunday Love Songs to see if we have got a mention there - not my normal Sunday morning fare! :)

Have a great weekend one and all

I have emailed Cob at The Skids website and he has kindly sent me this email.
Good on you Cob.

Hey m8

your account is now activated, you should get an auto email from the website letting you know :)

I could stick this on the news page as well as a news article for you, that will give it a bit more exposure and it gets posted across various facebook pages and groups automatically :)

Feel free to post it on the forums as well :)


all the best

Kind regards

Cob
ô¿ô

Another step forward to hopefully moving those last 35...........

I put some info about the Gig on Stuart Adamson's, Big Country and The Skids Facebook pages a couple of days ago. Today The Skids one has officially posted the full details :-)
