Social media has revolutionized this generation. It is the easiest means to share information, search for information, to meet friends or to meet strangers, to cheat and to get cheated on and the list can go on and on, on both positive and negative side. Social media is influencing almost every industry and movie industry is affected by it the most.
We all know that every product needs to get promoted. Be it a soap or perfume or even a movie. If a movie is not promoted they chances are that no one will even know about it. Only when a movie is promoted do the people come to know about its release. Promotion tells people about genre, cast, hint of story and the director. All these factors are a must in catching the interest of viewers. But how does social media changing the ways of movie promotion? Here is how –
Being Fastest to Share it
As social media is accessible to all the people round the world it is the fastest way to share. A person shares a review or a trailer on his or her wall will automatically appear on numerous people’s news feed. Those friends might be in the same country or may be in different continents. If one person sees a movie trailer and likes it that person will share it on Facebook wall. If that person has 100 friends at least 25 will see it and check out the trailer and then they will post it on their walls. Then another 25 people will see it and the chain continues and the movie gets promoted.
Social media is a platform that spreads anything with no cost. If a girl likes a Barbie movie trailer then she will post it on her wall. This promotes the movie and the producer of the movie did not have not to spend a penny. Massive promotion happens this way and costs the movie makers no money.
Another great way to catch all movie trailers is by movie apps. ShowBox is a movie app that you should consider if you need to stream latest movies and movie trailers. The app is for free and so is it services. It also streams TV episodes and music.
Movie apps are also a great way to promote movies. But this way might charge some money from movie makers. Another good movie app is MovieBox. It streams movies, trailers, TV episodes and music. It is for free and very compatible with android users. You can also see more information on their site. Here is the link to their site: downloadmovieboxapp.com.
Although social media is fastest and cheapest way of promotion yet it is also with the maximum risk. If a single person does not like a trailer or a movie then he or she might write negative review about it. Others might read it and get influenced by it. Social media has both its pros and cons.
