#GoBarsoom Update and Thank You: Our John Carter Fan Trailer had 36,000 views today and is now embedded on more than 100 sites

GoBarsoom Media Campaign, Other Stuff

Here’s a #GoBarsoom grassroots media campaign update: In the two days  since Andrew Stanton tweeted about our John Carter fan trailer, word has spread very nicely and now more than 100 sites around the web (and around the world) have embedded the trailer and written articles about it.   There have been 36,000 views on YouTube since yesterday morning.  We thank everybody who tweeted and retweeted about this and we urge everyone to keep tweeting and sharing not just the fan trailer, but the REAL GOOD NEWS of the moment and that is the growing array of positive tweets coming from press who saw the film at the Arizona press screenings.  Between the positive buzz over our trailer, and the positive buzz about the “tweet reviews” which we are helping to promulgate  — the amount of social media chatter has increased measurably and the positive/negative sentiment has shifted VERY favorably.

Here’s the most comprehensive list we’ve seen of the websites carrying the embedded trailer.Thanks to Nick M for sending us the following list of links where our trailer is now up and embedded.

This is all very good but obviously we’re still talking pretty small numbers in the overall scheme of things.   It’s good that all the major entertainment/movie tracking websites seem to have picked it up, as they are powerful opinion influencers and this amplifies the value of the trailer itself.

We are now in the process of setting up our #GoBarsoom online media guide to help with grassroots publicity in local media around the US and elsewhere.  More on that later.

Things are looking up.  Thanks again for your support.

  • This is so on-the-money, and so what JC needs, I can’t believe it. Thank you. It’s also amazing that you “got it”
    without having to resort to the white apes clip! Not that I have anything against John Carter killing white apes, but
    the official trailers have been a bit lazy in using it, as if the thinking is:”hey, that’ll get people excited, we’ve done our job.”

  • Incredible. Thanks for all the effort you guys put into this. Maybe, just maybe, Disney will learn a lesson on how to market these wonderful tales of Barsoom.

  • I don’t think so. Somebody probably should. it’s weird for that to be the last place it gets posted. 😉
