    There is a movie launching in about two months right down my niche ally. Any ideas how I can use this to my advantage?

    I know I can rent an advert on the big screen but I don't know if that will bring people to my website.

    I thought about trying to put up posters at the theaters (maybe I'll try and make them look like they're tied to the movie and no one will take them down ;) I don't think the managers would go for posters beacuse most are chains these days.

    I considered hiring people to hand out flyers but them buggers cost a bunch and then paying the people...

    Could park a car out front, real earlier in the day with a magnet on it but that's kinda small and wouldn't stick out and only hits one theather per car.

    Hmmmmmm, don't wanna have to pay much for this so what are your thoughts?

    Hello,
    I work in a movie complex and people have a very short memory.
    I work in the concession stand and I ask people what movie they are seeing and they can't
    even remember what ticket they bought just 5 minutes past.
    I think handouts would be your best bet.

    Thanks - I didn't know people's memories were that short.

    Anyone else have thoughts on this?

    Show up with a crew wearing tshirts with your URL on it at the end of each showing? People are leaving the theather and see you all congregating wearing the same thing you'll probably stick out and since the movie is over they'll probably remember the URL.

    Chuck some posters up in the bathroom (eye height at urinals)
    Chances are there will already be an advertisement there (it's prime advertisment spot!)
    so just chuck it over.
    Otherwise flyers on cars could work.

    yea i can see the urinal flyers working especially if you do it for a popular movie release though it may only last until staff clean the bathroom, but you will get many eyeballs during the movies and after.
