OPTIMIZE YOUR INTERNATIONAL TV SHOW AND FILM DISTRIBUTION STRATEGY
SELLING ENTERTAINMENT CONTENT WITH MORE TARGETED STRATEGIES
As a distributor of movies or TV shows you are confronted with several challenges in successfully marketing and distributing your content:
STAYING ON TOP IN A COMPETITIVE MARKET
The media and entertainment landscape is evolving rapidly, and competition in the TV show and film distribution industry has become fierce. Regardless of whether you are a large company in search of a valuable TV show or film distribution deal, or a TV network or filmmaking company whose target is to expand into untapped markets or to renew a series, it’s only getting harder to make money in this industry. Providing highly targeted content from entertainment services and ensuring convenient access to your content for worldwide and digital audiences is now mandatory in this hypercompetitive landscape.
IDENTIFYING THE RIGHT TARGET MARKETS
On top of that, no one can afford to ignore audience and fan insights when setting up a successful distribution strategy. This is why data-driven decision making and data analytics have entered the media and entertainment sector. But the lack of quality data has quickly become the biggest challenge, and for the most part the following questions remain unanswered:
What are the target markets
for selling films, approaching the right buyers and making distribution deals in the right countries?
How can you strengthen arguments on which
to build up content marketing strategies?
Are fans still interested in
the renewal of a series or additional installments of a movie?
HAVING THE RIGHT DATA IS KEY TO IDENTIFY HIGH-POTENTIAL MARKETS
- LEVERAGE NEW OPPORTUNITIES THAT CAN EXPAND YOUR BUSINESS!
As a film studio, you need to think about where to distribute content, how to gain leverage when negotiating prices around the world, and how to better incorporate digital outlets into your distribution process. To answer these questions, you might examine how movies performed according to box office figures in target markets for the film industry (if available). After that, you might also look at comparable movies and how specific genres, filmmakers or producers have developed in the past.
Broadcasters and TV networks producing and distributing their own content need to know whether or not it will be successful among their key demographics and target audience. This may be determined by analyzing TV ratings, coverage from press and critics, and consumer voices on social media. Nevertheless, these data sets only mirror the markets where content is already officially accessible. For other markets, there may not be any reliable or consistent box office numbers or TV ratings for distributors to evaluate the success of their content. Furthermore, negative critics will feature more prominently than positive ones, which may create distorted perceptions of demand within target markets for the film industry.
Considering all of this, incomplete or inconsistent market data is a clear problem, and therefore you need to tap several sources of data in order to strengthen your business decisions and make even better deals.
ANALYZING FILE SHARING ACTIVITY:
A DATA SET TO MAKE MORE INFORMED DECISIONS REGARDING TV SHOW AND FILM DISTRIBUTION STRATEGIES
TECXIPIO is committed to providing you with scalable solutions to questions, concerns and challenges regarding the sale and distribution of content as well as the optimization of your TV show and film distribution strategy. In addition, the file sharing data we provide arms content producers and distributors with the most valuable insights to make more informed business decisions in target markets for the film industry and beyond.
TECXIPIO can provide you with the information you need to help you sell your content to markets worldwide
1. WHAT ARE THE TARGET MARKETS FOR SELLING FILMS, APPROACHING THE RIGHT BUYERS AND MAKING DISTRIBUTION DEALS IN THE RIGHT COUNTRIES?
TECXIPIO equips studios, filmmakers, distributors, broadcasting companies and TV networks with powerful file sharing data that enables deep market insights. For example, file sharing data can be used to further expand movie distribution in new and untapped target markets for the film industry, or to adjust distribution strategies and processes for TV shows in existing markets, and vice versa. While TV ratings and box office numbers depend on many factors – like the official releases and availability of films, videos and DVDs – file sharing data is independent and unbiased from TV show and film distribution windows and channels. As soon as torrents of new content hit P2P networks, interested audiences worldwide have immediate digital access. Monitoring the distribution of your content in file sharing networks will reveal many insights about its popularity and new high potential target markets for the film industry. This set of numbers also enables you to identify new distribution areas worldwide and on down to the city level, and even for films and videos that have not yet been officially released!
2. HOW CAN YOU STRENGTHEN ARGUMENTS ON WHICH TO BUILD UP CONTENT MARKETING STRATEGIES?
By enriching your information pool with file sharing statistics, you bolster your distribution strategy and process with crucial insights, thereby strengthening your arguments for where to sell certain movies or TV shows, and where they are less likely to achieve comparable success. With file sharing data, you can prove the demand for your film or TV show, even in places where the theatrical, DVD or digital release date is still in the future. With arguments supported by proof of the demand in your business partner’s areas of service, your bargaining power in negotiating distribution deals and better prices will be greatly improved!
3. ARE FANS STILL INTERESTED IN A SERIES REBOOT OR ADDITIONAL INSTALLMENTS OF A MOVIE?
Monitoring file sharing activity not only enables you to pursue the development of your content in different markets in real time, it also lets you pull comprehensive data from a single source that is based on unbiased consumer demand for individual titles worldwide. For example, to fully assess future potential you can drill the numbers down to single episodes of a TV show. This way you can identify how many users are currently starting to catch up with the first episodes and seasons. File sharing data gives you an indication of the actual relevance of your content in different areas, allowing you to optimize your TV show and film distribution strategy and process around whether a film or franchise has the potential of being renewed or continued.
HOW CAN YOU USE FILE SHARING DATA WITH THE TECXIPIO PIC TO OPTIMIZE TV SHOW AND FILM DISTRIBUTION STRATEGIES?

Distributors don’t only have to rely on incomplete data or their gut feeling to plan the distribution of films and TV shows.

But now, by analyzing file sharing data, you can add more certainty to these kinds of business decisions. The TECXIPIO PIC enables you to create individual trend reports to monitor the popularity of your titles live, and to get insights into your target markets.
