As you may know, Will Readingis now streaming on Amazon Prime Video! It’s a very exciting time – and, it’s kind of bizarre to go to Amazon and see the movie in search results with big budget Hollywood movies. But the thing is, it’s generally buried, found pages and pages deep in Amazon’s search results.
We’ve been working on the movie for so long, it’d be nice to think of this stage of digital distribution as the last step, but it’s not. We’re trying to get the word out, and it’s not easy. But there is a way YOU CAN HELP!
One of the easiest ways to help the Amazon algorithm help other users find the movie is by writing a five star review, which you can do here. It’s easy to see that lots of people have watched the movie (Nearly 3500 minutes streamed so far!), but not everybody has been able to write a review. If we could get half of the folks that watched the movie to give us a five star review, we’d probably have around 20 reviews.
MATH: The thinking here is with 3500 minutes streamed DIVIDED BY 80 minutes (the 1 hr, 20 minute running time of Will Reading) equals 43.75 views – assuming people watched the entire movie and saw the post credits scene. (FUN FACT: The post credits scene has always been in the script, all the way back to first 2013 version of the script.)
As you can see at the review above, a review doesn’t have to be long – even a single word will do.
Oh! “Not everybody has been able to write a review.” This is true. Sure, some people watch the movie at night, so when it’s over they’re ready for bed, no time to write a review. Hopefully, they’ll get to it eventually. But other people who are to close to me have been blocked from writing a review. Makes sense – they’re biased, the system knows we’re connected, I get it. I, of course, can’t write one either.
But maybe you can! If you have a minute to spare, write us a review here and soon, your reviews and others like it will propel it up the charts so when folks look for something to watch on Amazon, Will Reading comes up.
If you’re jazzed to help us, another thing you can do while you’re on Amazon is to add it to your watch list. Every little bit helps! And if you’re on social media and you don’t mind telling your friends/followers about your Will Reading experience, that’d be great, too! Here’s a helpful image we’ve been using to market the movie.
Thanks to everyone for helping us get the word out about Will Reading! We’re so happy to have the movie available for everyone to see and we appreciate your help in making the digital distribution a success!
