Trailer Treasure: Hollywood’s Clever Drip Marketing Strategy

Hollywood’s been using drip marketing remarkably well – and remarkably consistently – for nearly a decade. But you probably haven’t noticed.

Today, a hot movie trailer’s debut is one of the most anticipated moments across the Internet. Facebook campaigns with official trailer countdowns are the norm.
