Watch It is emerging as a valuable marketing tool for independent filmmakers. You can use Watch It as a great way to engage with your fans and followers, and inform them how they can watch your film. Watch It also lets them add your film to a queue to watch later and get alerts when your film is available on a new service. Watch It also encourages your fans to easily share information about your film with their friends on Facebook, Twitter and other social networks. This is all free and available to you right now.
To share, first find your film's page on Watch It. As an example, here’s the page for Jon Reiss’s film "Bomb It." You can e-mail, Tweet, or share this page on Facebook or any other social network. You can also do that using the sharing tools on each page of Watch It. (In the near future we will be offering you a dashboard to track how many people are queuing your movie.)
Beyond social sharing, you can also put our button on your website. We recently worked with Reiss in placing the button on his site, which you can see here. The button opens up a widget that displays your film's current availabilities on your page, showing your visitors all the ways they can watch it. The widget automatically updates as your film becomes available on new services. Our button ensures that your site visitors can easily watch your film or save it to their queue.
We want to work directly with you, so you can get the most out of Watch It. By signing up for our premium service, you will work directly with our team. Our service includes direct marketing opportunities, including sending specialized emails and alerts to a qualified audience and data sharing. We will also work with you to ensure your film's Watch It listing remains current. If your film is not available on a service we're tracking, we can add that service to your film's listing. We can also feature your film on our homepage, in a section called "Indie Showcase," to help give your film more visibility.
