Award winning, independent film ‘Speak Now’ is now available for digital pre-purchase on iTunes and download on June 1st. Leading up to their big release, they are holding a contest for a chance to win a $50 iTunes Gift Card. To enter, movie lovers are asked to visit their iTunes page and pre-purchase either the SD ($5.99) or HD ($7.99) version of the film. They then, will need to forward a copy of their iTunes receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org with their name in the subject line. Contestants can gain an additional entry by referring friends to enter the contest and having them put both names in the subject line of the email.
“This contest is the first step in the organic marketing campaign we will run to maximize our audience. We are using the power of the audience to help us tip the marketing scales in our favor. We are a small film with a modest marketing budget. Each time our audience shares socially, digitally, or via direct email this offers us as independent filmmakers increased reach. We have built our audience and made our film due to the support of the crowd. This campaign just reinforces the power of the audience in the independent film distribution model.” (Benjamin Friedberg, Executive Producer of “Speak Now”)
The contest will run thru midnight May 31st and a winner will be selected at random on June 1st and mailed the gift card. The producers of ‘Speak Now’ ask that contestants and supporters share the film with their network and download it on iTunes on June 1st so that they can try to crack the iTunes indie Top 10 charts. ‘Cracking’ this list is a great accomplishment for many independent film directors as it results in wider exposure as well as potential for foreign release deals.
“Speak Now exists due to the generous support of our Kickstarter backers, the talented cast from Warner Loughlin Studios, and the creative passion of our committed production team. We are thrilled to share our work with our audience via iTunes. Please join us in supporting the work of independent filmmakers and download a copy beginning June 1.” (Benjamin Friedberg, Executive Producer of ‘Speak Now’)
