The movie Sing has come out and it has obviously been a big hit! I’ve seen the trailer everywhere. But you know where I haven’t seen it from? Movie Theatres.
You know you a person who does social media for different industries, movie theaters have it so easy (and maybe that’s the problem). But My point is that the movies and titles do ALL the heavy lifting needed to have a successful social media campaign. That includes: branding, content, video (trailer), promotions etc. There are just 2 things you need to do.
- Let your audience know that you are showing this movie
- Give them a link to where they can purchase tickets at their local theater.
Listen, people already want to see that movie and the production company has already made sure everyone knows about the movie. All you have to do is wave your hand and say that you have the movie as well. Why not post the trailer on your Facebook page directly and promote it to a 20 mile radius around your theater? I guarantee you your sales will jump online. Don’t believe me? Own or work at a theater? Make me an admin to your Facebook Page and I will do 2 weeks of marketing for FREE to show you how its done.
It’s so easy and the CRAZY part is that no big theater is doing this so that means there is opportunity here! Same way there was opportunity in Google AdWords when no one is doing it. Don’t miss your opportunity. Try posting a trailer
Try posting a trailer, put a link to purchase tickets (use goo.gl so you can track the clicks) and boost it to people in a 20mile radius. See you at Cinecon!
