    This just shows you the best marketing is “finding a need and filling it” is the best strategy.

    Those Red Box video rental machines that are popping up everywhere, even have one at a local Walmart here. They are such a great tool but wait until someone realizes the marketing potential they have. Such as releasing movies that didn’t get released anywhere except by the Red Box team. Free email promotions, minimumal promotion cost to be highlighted at point-of-purchase.

    How about CD’s rented for a buck that you take home and transfer to your PC then onto mp3’s and Ipods?

    On the movies at Red Box, how about a contest for homemade videos and offering those videos as an upsell to all rentals for half the buck a day of top releases?
