Create "Micro-Moments" to win new customers over time
Motion picture producers have access to digital information like never before at anytime and anywhere. This 24/7/365 access leads to sudden realizations (i.e.. epiphanies) for “next moves” toward improving production quality, process, and reducing costs. They want to immediately search and find constructive information that will form strategies and develop contacts to build on these realizations. These "Micro Moments" can happen at anytime of the day or night. The information found in these "micro-moments" can be the genesis that leads to changes in their workflow processes, purchasing, vendor and talent relationships. If you don’t cater to these "micro-moments," then you're losing out on perfect marketing opportunities to be a part of your rapidly changing clients' and prospects' mind set. Companies and artisans that prepare, wait, and position themselves to be found in these “micro moments” become the genesis of change for their clients and prospects instead of the victim of change. A SPW Publicity News Release is a simple, fast, means to create a “mircro-moment."
