All Filmmakers are Marketers – Branding, Marketing & Social Media

Today I’m talking about marketing! Yup, marketing. If you, as indie filmmakers, do not understand branding, marketing, and social media YOU WILL NOT MAKE IT IN THE BUSINESS. I really want to get through to you guys. I’ve been consulting more and more filmmakers lately and I see there is a MAJOR disconnect between filmmakers and understanding the basics of branding (whether personal, company, or project), marketing, and social media.

In this episode I’ll be discussing:

  • Tribe or Audience Building
  • Brand Marketing vs. Direct Marketing
  • Understanding your smallest viable audience
  • Brand Building
  • Building Your Personal Brand
  • Discovering how you can love the GRIND or your journey
  • Choosing platforms to build your brand
  • Content creation

Also below are six books that will help you along your path to understanding these basic concepts. I truly hope that you find value in this episode. The understanding, at a basic level, of branding, marketing, and social media is not a luxury but a necessity in today’s and tomorrow’s world.  Don’t get left behind. I want every single #IFHTribe member to make their dream come true, to build a better life for themselves, and to love their own journey towards their goals.

Warning: this episode might make you think about stuff so beware! Enjoy and keep on hustling.
