Posted in webmaster at 10:37 pm by Jon Symons

It worked. The company's blog, GreenCine Daily, sparked a 20-fold rise in hits on the GreenCine Web site to about one million a month. Even better, films critiqued by the blog's two writers are often snapped up by renters. Despite little marketing, membership numbers and revenue have doubled in the past year."
