Des really should be on the phone to groupon, get it on with a decent discount and they could have a chance to fill the place. No one else is gonna pay full price.

It really is too late now we are into December, people have different priorities. Black Friday been and gone, that was the last big chance really.

‘People say the BDO can’t compete with the PDC, but that is the biggest load of crap in the world’

Des Jacklin, 26 January 2019

10 months on and re-reading this is guaranteed to generate a laugh.

“They have more money to throw at the game”
Er, no they generate huge sums of money, there is a difference
Reading that again has made me laugh

Amazing what a product that both sells tickets and attracts sponsors will do. But it's not "proper darts" so it doesn't count.

Forget buying some actual proper advertising Des, just get a bloke who has 75k less people following it than your own to do a sub-page :roll: :roll:
Tbf to Wayne, he has at least equalled the BDO official promotion volume with this...

Aye, to probably all the same people who see it on the BDO page already. Utterly pointless.

Beyond embarrassing.

What happened to his promise to never have anything to do with the BDO again?

Worst thing is he wont actually be getting paid for this and is doing it off his own back.

Why? Not going to help his own sales is it (not that he needs the help, his exbo there in the New Year is near sold out anyway)

I think even Wayne knows deep down he is having zero effect, hence why he deleted the competition post.

All he is doing is advertising it to people on closed groups/ pages who know the event is on already and therefore have had no interest in buying them.
At least make some sort of attempt at advertising to a wider audience that aren’t aware of the event.
He’s flogging a dead horse.

All that kind of malarkey costs money and obviously nobody is willing to spend it. Comes down to the arrogance of "we have never had to pay to advertise ever", aye but we dont live in the 1980's anymore with only 1 darts org, 3/4 television channels and no internet/social media.
