Social Rewards Convert Movie Goers

In case you didn’t know, Moviegoers are a great vertical market to target. According to the MPPA In 2010, US Box Office figures were at $10.6 billion, meaning that 222.7 million people went to the movies at least once in 2010 (in the US and Canada) that’s over 2/3 of the population, and the average amount of tickets purchased per moviegoer was 6. The demographic of people buying tickets being split 50/50 between men and women.

Going to the movies is an essential part of the American culture but with the advent of streaming movies online, this activity is starting to dwindle. More and more people are deciding to spend nights in with Netflix a bottle of wine and a plate of spaghetti Bolognese, rather than spend $17 for an IMAX ticket and another $20 on concessions. So how do we get people off the couch and back to the movie theater? In terms of “Whats in it for me?” Free is always a great motivator.

Here we see the relevance of free  pre-screen movie tickets. This way of rewarding people for creating word of mouth for a new movie is nothing new and have been around for years. The good news is the same dawn of technology that allows movie lovers  to stream movies now also provides social rewards to convert them back  to moviegoers.

BestBuzz has been used as a marketing tool for Film Production companies Summit, Warner Brothers, Paramount Pictures and CBS Pictures. The mobile marketing tool rewards customers who help promotions grow through social media. Using its patented social reward technology, BestBuzz uses Mobile Entry Points, (MEP’s) to engage movie fans by offering movie promotions with successful results.

The process is simple and the results are amazing:

Most recently BestBuzz was used to promote Now You See Me, a Summit movie. The process is simple to gain amazing word of mouth reach.

  1. Create a Mobile Entry Point using BestBuzz, for this we used a QR code.
  2. Create the social reward – In this instance the reward was two free pre-screen passes to see the movie
  3. Use your mobile entry point in your usual pre-screen marketing activities such as print and digital media.
  4. Watch the social reward buzz grow!
Free Movie Ticket Giveaway with BestBuzz

Text BUZZ to 63566 to download the BestBuzz app. Scan the QR code to get Free Movie Tickets.

The results speak for themselves. The BestBuzz dashboard shows that the free pre-screen passes were all given away well before the movie showing date.  This achieved the two objectives for the promotion, give away all the free pre-screen passes and create word of mouth buzz about the movie to generate great ticket sales when it becomes available on general release. In fact people continue to scan the QR code even past the launch date.


We can also see that the social media reach or “buzz” that was created on social media networks like Twitter and Facebook reached over 16,000 people, with 595 people clicking on the mobile landing page to find out more about the movie, showing time date and location.

Another amazing movie promotion that continues to be successful to this day is for Magic Mike, produced by Warner Brothers.To date, this code has had 406 scans and has reached over 102,000 people on social media.


The great thing about QR codes as mobile entry points is that the message behind the code can be changed and updated. Any person scanning it will see your latest promotion, giving your marketing collateral an extended lifetime and it’s always timely and relevant.

Dallas Mavs Love of Community Inspires BestBuzz in Deep Ellum

Win Dallas maverick Tickets | Mavs vs Suns

If you haven’t already heard, DFW AMA luncheons are the best place to meet and mingle with some of the most creative minds in the metroplex (plus snag a great meal out of the office — score!). Today’s luncheon at the Bent Tree Golf Club was especially exciting because we got the opportunity to hear from the Dallas Mavericks Vice President of Marketing and Communications, Paul Monroe.

He detailed how his marketing team creates the “360-degree experience” for fans. His team takes everything into consideration, from the guy or gal taking the ticket at the front gate to the videos playing during the games. Paul and his team tirelessly create, monitor, and analyze every detail of the fan experience. They even design more than 1200 marketing pieces each season (by ONE graphic designer, no less). Whether the season is in full swing or the boys are enjoying some time off, Paul’s team delivers a consistent message that helps turn basketball fans into a MFFL (Mavs Fans for Life).

Strumming on our heartstrings, he told us how the Dallas Mavs get involved in the Dallas community, particularly Deep Ellum … hey, that’s our side of town! The Mavs’ main offices are not at the American Airlines Center even though they play there; they are actually in Deep Ellum and have been for decades. Not only are they wonderful neighbors, they participate in many events to help brighten this small but vibrant slice of Dallas. From events like Raise the Arts, which helps raise funds for arts supplies for underprivileged families to one-of-a-kind art auctions, the Mavs help bring life to our historic neighborhood. So for us, not only do we have an awesome basketball team, BestBuzz has a neighbor that loves it here as much as we do.

What an inspiration! So we decided to find a way to give back, too. We’re going to generate some Mavericks Buzz by giving away a pair of Mavs tickets:  How about the Phoenix Suns April 10th game just for you? Text MAVS to 63566 and Buzz-In to win! The winner will be announced Friday, March 29! Good luck, happy buzzing, and GO MAVS!

How to Buzz-in:

  1. Text MAVS to 63566
  2. Download the BestBuzz App
  3. Scan the Buzz QR Code
  4. Click “Enter to Win!”
  5. Click “ENTER TO WIN HERE” & fill out your first name, last name, and email address.

QR Codes send Little Monsters Gaga

Dallas goes Gaga with BestBuzz to get tickets to the Ball

Lady Gaga ticket competition

Users were invited to scan the Lady Gaga QR code to win free tickets

The Born This Way Ball starring Lady Gaga hits the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas on January 29, 2013. BestBuzz, the leader in mobile marketing technology and social media rewards, wanted to make sure that two of her Little Monsters could go to the ball on them.

In another groundbreaking mobile marketing campaign, BestBuzz enticed Lady Gaga fans to download the free BestBuzz app and scan the custom-designed, patent-pending QR code to trigger an exclusive experience for users.

QR codes mean prizes

Custom designed and branded QR codes are a specialty of BestBuzz, which has worked with national brands and businesses ranging from vitaminwater® to Bryan Street Tavern to create successful mobile marketing campaigns.

The BestBuzz team placed posters with the Buzz QR Code all over Dallas in social hot-spots as well as in digital spaces such as Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

And the winner is…

On Friday, January 25,after only 14 days of buzzing in, Elizabeth Barnes was announced as the lucky winner of the Lady Gaga promotion. Elizabeth first started using BestBuzz after she saw a BestBuzz QR code promoting a movie screening in the Dallas Observer. She used the code to get free passes to a movie screening and hasn’t stopped buzzing since.

She says, “I love how easy BestBuzz is to use! I just point and click and get GREAT rewards!” I use it to scan QR codes and bar codes so it is a very useful app to have on my iPhone.”

After being so happy with the BestBuzz app experience, she also liked the BestBuzz Facebook page where she learned about the Lady Gaga promotion and buzzed in to win. The only difficulty she has now is picking which Little Monster she should take to the ball! Elizabeth’s experience demonstrates how mobile marketing campaigns that integrate social reward technology drive brand loyalty.

­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­ “The BestBuzz app is so easy to use, just scan with your phone and win!”

QR codes mean businesses win too!

The Born This Way Ball mobile marketing promotion was a huge success, with over 48 people scanning the QR code to create over 19,258 social impressions and over 1,034 clicks on the mobile landing page.

Through the BestBuzz dashboard tools and analytics, BestBuzz measured the campaign activity 24/7 showing 79% of the scans came from iPhone® users and 21% from Android users. Lady Gaga is the Queen of Twitter so it may not be surprising that the majority of social impressions came from the 140-character social media platform, with just over 5000 from Facebook and 2500 from LinkedIn®.

BestBuzz creates a complete mobile experience as it is quick and easy to use in a mobile environment. If you already have the BestBuzz app, you just fire it up and scan QR codes with your device. You are instantly taken to a Mobile Landing Page to enter your details for giveaways. For users that don’t already have the BestBuzz app, a short-code SMS is always available.

You may watch that video and ask, “Where is Lady Gaga from and how did she come up with such unique ideas?” Her given name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta and she was born and raised in New York City. She says she is influenced by Musical Stars such as David Bowie, Michael Jackson, Madonna and Queen, which may explain where the infamous meat dress came from.
