Immediate Marketing Opportunities for Indie Producers
Right now indie, and all film producers for that matter, have the immediate opportunity to strengthen their competitive advantages for the coming year by taking these next few weeks to create or update their film's marketing program: to expand the audience, and to reach out to potential distributors, future co-production partners, sponsors, and anyone else who can help you.
The record Thanksgiving weekend grosses are good news for everyone, so the marketplace promises to be very active after the new year. The audience will be looking for upcoming films (and media outlets will want to inform them) distributors will be looking for new films, industry executives will be interested in finding new, creative, productive people to work with, and sponsors will be making deals with producers.
For over ten years I've been helping talent and producers successsfully promote their films, and I want to help you too.
Working together, here's what we can accomplish between now and the end of the year:
Creation of a professional and up to date press message and media list
Creation of target list of industry contacts (possible distributors, co-production partners, potential commercial sponsors, and other industry people who can help you)
Creation of professional promotional materials to be considered by people at our target list of companies, which will not be returned as unsolicited submissions
Producers and talent who have their messages and materials completed by the beginning of the new year will enjoy a substantial competitive advantage, in a highly competitive environment.
If you understand the value of having a professional marketing program created and implemented on your behalf, get back to me, tell me what you would like to accomplish next year, and we'll work out a plan that makes sense for you.
It's going to be a great new year, I hope you join our family of clients and friends.
Thanks for your consideration.
