What is Inbound Marketing?
inbound Marketing definition
Inbound marketing is the art of developing content that is tailored to an audience.
Inbound marketing can be a piece of content or even an experience.
Bounds and commonalities are used to form connections with your audience through inbound marketing to help your audience solve their preexisting issues and problems.
Outbound Marketing is just the opposite. Outbound Marketing is releasing content that the audience doesn’t necessarily want to see and doesn’t necessarily help fix their problems.

Jaws WeMake is effective inbound marketing
Jaws is a classic horror film and helped coin the term “Summer Blockbuster”. The movie is an absolute classic, with a huge cult following. The film is celebrating its 45th anniversary of being released this year.
So it was not surprising when a bunch of fans, who were locked up in their houses due to COVID19 quarantine, felt the need to recreate classic parts of the film and post them online.

What is a WeMake?
With rumors swirling that there could be a possible remake of the original 1975 classic, fans decided to take action and create a WeMake version of the movie.
A reboot consists of entirely rebooting a film franchise, often discarding most of the older films and it’s mythology.
A remake is consists of taking the first film, and remaking it with the most modern technology available, basically refreshing the film.
A WeMake consists of fans filming different parts of the film, and one producer crowdsourcing the user-generated content, to create a remake that consists of solely fan-made footage.
It would be considered inbound marketing (In this case user-generated) because it involves the Jaws fan community, getting together, creating specific content for the Jaws fan community, and fixing a problem they have. In this case, they want an updated version of the movie, but do not want the movie producers to completely ruin the time classic film.
Will This Inbound marketing strategy work?
Time will tell, but to date, the WeMake movie has already accumulated 15000 views and climbing.
That doesn’t take into account the reach of the other user-generated content that is also floating around on the internet, that has also accumulated views.
One thing is for sure, the Jaws Fans community, absolutely loves this content, and why wouldn’t they, as they are all represented in it.
