1. Become an Internet Marketer
Or team up with someone who is. Why? Because there will come a time when there is no delineation between the Internet and your television. Or your mobile device. As a result of these changes, you will need to drive targeted Internet traffic to your desired point of sale and convert these visitors into customers.
2. Learn How to Crowdfund
Running a successful crowdfunding campaign requires social networking, real-world networking, and Internet marketing. Aside from raising money, your goal is to test all your movie concepts before you dive in both feet first. And, if successful, your goal is to snowball your supporters into one giant mailing list so you can gain their support for your next projects.
3. Build Your Audience
Your audience is your business. Marketing nerds have a saying, “The money is in your list.” It is now no different to filmmakers. Your ongoing goal is to create work that encourages people to sign up for your mailing list and become a fan of you and your movies, for life. Then with each project, your ongoing goal is to continually grow your list.
