|Editor's note re historic
changes to one of the principal links in the article hello Etongrad! |
In the February 28, 2021 version of my article hello Etongrad the sentence "For more take a look at the emerging action group website here" pointed to https://sites.google.com/view/ecp-protest-group/the-eton-plans
On March 6, 2021 - I changed that link in my article to http://saveoursussexvillages.uk
This was done because both web sites had been set up by the same people and a succession of urls had been anticipated at the time of my original article published the week before.
However - even though I am a local resident and object to the inappropriate nature of the Etongrad development - I see a potential communciations missfire with the name of the web site being "Save Our Sussex Villages" because it implies a sentiment rather than a precise statement of the group's deliverable scope and resources.
It's still early days in the story of this campaign. If the website's name changes again - I'll update this note as seems appropriate.
On March 18, 2021 - a new website for the campaign appeared. http://www.donturbanisethedowns.com/ - "Don't urbanise the Downs" alongside an "under construction" apology and a link to "join our campaign" button.
Despite 2 false starts with weak content - this - the 3rd iteration of the campaign's web site - is evidence of serious intent. So we will watch this space.
Until then - if you're on internet time and want to learn more right now - take a look at the emerging timeline of stories about this on - wrongthingwrongplace.com.
On March 29, 2021 - a new version of the Don't urbanise the Downs web site sprang into place - with much more content - revealing at last some of the hard work which had been going on behind the scenes. Well done to all who took part.
Web marketing stuff?
This isn't a forum for deep discussions about web marketing, naming web sites etc. I made my living as a web publisher of US (originally)and then China facing computing websites for over 20 years starting in 1996 - so naturally I've had many evolving views about web related topics. Some of which I wrote about in a little FAQs site called marketingviews.com. The link on the left takes you to a 2016 archive of that site which was already 20 years old at that time.
