Social Media: How to Use It to Sell Your Film
Social media is a mystery to most filmmakers. It’s really easy to get lost in Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Tumblr, Youtube, Snap Chat, Periscope, Meerkat, or any of the hundreds of other social media platforms available online.
With so many choices and platforms to learn many of us just don’t even bother but for those that take the time to educate themselves on social media and it’s power the rewards can be HUGE.
