The Blitz
« on: June 25, 2015, 10:39:54 PM »
I am stepping up to the plate to do this thing.  This.  Is.  The.  Blitz. 


Keep in mind the Davebots can read this thread too, but we can organize our thoughts here, and keep secret stuff to the PM's.  Bring your game, BellGabbers.  Bring your talent.  The Midnight In The Desert Media Blitz officially begins July 4th, and continues through July 20th.  Let's get our strategy together here.


Ideas, artwork, trailers, articles, links, oh my.

You're on the list.  Got any ideas on how you could promote Midnight In The Desert?  Are you on myface?  Are you on twitter?  Do you have photoshop skills?  Have you called your local radio station?  We will find a way to put our resident Chef & Chemist to work, mu ha haa.

On July 4th, would you do some tweets & posts to your fb if I provided links?  Thank you for calling your local station.

hey Red, I know Art chose that day and it's sentimental because it's Independence Day and there is something romantic about us starting the blitz on that day but I think it's the worst day to start the blitz for a couple of reasons. Perhaps you can pass this on to Art if he doesn't read this thread.

Firstly, the weekend is the worst day to post on social media as this helpful infographic points out. Click to enlarge.



more info about the best and worst times to post on social media can be found here: http://www.fastcompany.com/3036184/how-to-be-a-success-at-everything/the-best-and-worst-times-to-post-on-social-media-infograph

Also the 4th is a Holiday and people will be busy getting drunk and having parties and may not be using social media to blitz.

I personally think the next Monday or Tuesday if the Monday is a work holiday due to the 4th being a Saturday.

That's just my 2 Australian Cents which is worth less than your mighty American 2 cents. 0.02 AUD = 0.015442 USD.

Agreed.  It may be an extended weekend for some here in 'Murica.  Since The Blitz will go strong from July 4th - July 20th, those who want to begin on Monday July 6th are welcome to do so.  Perhaps we should hit hardest on July 6th & 13th those are our two Mondays during Blitz Time. 


Jaz, would you mind if I got all the links to your trailers in this thread in one post?  I'll do it, but just wanted to ask first.

Perhaps we can set up a day and time and try to get #artbell or something similar trending on Twitter.

Here you go. There will be a few more before AB Day. That is what I am calling The Blitz.













You should probably get MV to edit the original post once you have a list of things people can do for the blitz including providing links for these trailers.

I give permission to everyone to share these around far and wide.

Yes.  With Jaz's expert consultation, I was thinking July 7th & again July 14th.

Jaz, would you mind if I got all the links to your trailers in this thread in one post?  I'll do it, but just wanted to ask first.

I will study this chart and help in any way I can. So exciting.

Keep in mind with all the political-correctness going on that the para-legals and others in mist-tunnels in corporate offices at iHateMedia, Inc might start a campaign that the "blitz" is a racially-tinged, anti-American, not politically-correct term to use in this modern age, considering the origin of the term.

Having said that. BRING ON THE BLITZ! And starting on 4th of July, with all the firepower (not in my "smartphone," Norry- though it will be ironic when the "smartphone firepower" will elevate MITD to great heights) I'll be shooting off, in addition to telling everyone about MITD. Will be epic.
I can't wait for the new show!

Thank you Nancy.  You've been talking about Midnight In The Desert on Future Theater, and I bet you've got links to DMDN on your website.  That's a start.  Maybe tweet the Time Traveler signup link during The Blitz?  http://darkmatterdigitalnetwork.com/shows/midnight-in-the-desert/


Also, could you mention Midnight In The Desert at the top & bottom of the hour of each Future Theater during The Blitz?  (ha haa  ;) )
Are you on fb?
