Focus on Partnerships: Bring some Hollywood Magic to your brand
Collaborating with an eagerly anticipated film can offer brands the ideal vehicle to reach target audiences. You can leverage the power of blockbuster cinema releases and celebrities to activate compelling, 360-degree promotional and shopper marketing campaigns.
BFI research shows a growth in cinema attendances to 170.6m in 2017 and the industry has sophisticated data that can demonstrate audience preferences by age, gender, social group, region and even time of year so that you can find the ideal film for your demographic.
Film based promotions can genuinely engage with almost anyone and aligning your product with next year’s big hit can increase sales and gain new customers. But like anything, there is a skill to it; pick the wrong film and your promotion could be a turkey.
