Although the sequels were pretty terrible, the original Paranormal Activity had a great marketing ploy. The studio website had a demand button that would count the amount of people who were looking forward to seeing the movie in their local town. The center of the screen showed a counter, which would represent how many people wanted to see the movie in your local area. Once the number hit 1 million, it would be confirmed in that area.

Paranormal Activity made the film releasing a democratic process, if you wanted it bad enough, you had to tell your friends and family to hit that button. They essentially crowd funded the demand of the movie. This gave the producers a solid number of how many people wanted to see the movie, and saved them millions on traditional marketing. The movie went on to make over $100 million on a truly tiny budget.

The Muppets

The Muppets are famous all around the world. Everyone seems to have seen one of their movies at some point in their lives. But that doesn’t mean they don’t have to market their latest movies. The latest movie used parody to promote itself. They would place posters which were direct parodies of the big blockbusters of the time including Twilight and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

The Muppets marketing was sure impressive because they were light and funny, everything the Muppets were supposed to be.
