Basically the page started in 2010 started out as a page against the 25 point deduction in the Deefiant season. The idea just came to me during the night and since then it has grown and grown to just under 10,000 members on Facebook. We are a group of 5 that are Dundee daft ! And we just want Dundee to be as big as possible, and one excellent way of promoting the Dee is through social media. We have had meetings with Scott Gardiner etc in the past and John Nelms, and everyone is fully behind the idea. Rather than just calling ourselves after our facebook page 'dundee fc news', we call ourselves TeamDee. Social media is a very powerful tool, that if used properly can have a great impact on the club.
So the advert in America is to promote the Dee. The latest one will go live for the 4th July in the States, in Texas. Reaching an estimated 23 million people. We hope with the advert it promotes the Dee across there and in the long term attracts new supporters, especially with Dundee Juniors out there. We have other great ideas that we are working on, that will bring money for the youth development of the club, again through social media.
We have added a bots for the messaging service on facebook, so that fans can be pointed in the right direction to info they require 27/7, 365 days a year. (We get a lot of questions about ticket news, prices etc...), so this bot does it for us.
We have our main jobs, so this is just a wee thing on the side, our own time and money. Trying to help the club be the best it can be!
Hope that helps
