  6. 6. 12 YEARS A SLAVE – MARKETING AND PROMOTION This is a promotional advert in the metro newspaper. This would have helped promote the movie as the metro is free and morning commuters pick p the newspaper to read on the way to work on in their lunch breaks. The average age of morning commuters is 20 – 40 not including school children. Advertising in a busy area can help advertise products a lot as more people than average will look at posters and go and see the film/buy the product.
