Overt feel-good marketing

The Otago Daily Times and the Carisbrook Stadium Trust are offering readers the chance to win two prime seats for every event to be held at the Forsyth Barr Stadium, in Dunedin, during the first year after its official opening (special conditions apply).

Read pages 1 and 37 in today’s print and digital editions for more information.

This is getting close ODT…

The offer follows earlier advertising by Carisbrook Stadium Trust when trying to raise private sector funding, in which the newspaper owners provided a logo – along with a bunch of other businesses – indicating support for the stadium. Editorially, this made things a trifle difficult for those trying to uphold independence of the press.

As they say, this is a small town and in it there is a microscope. As well as, now it seems, a really great prize up for grabs.
