Reboot Today’s Strategy to Shape Tomorrow’s Culture

While the Media and Entertainment industry was one of the first business sectors to navigate digital disruption, its transformation is far from over. The lines between media categories continue to converge. Consumers are now creators. Content, in every form imaginable, is completely integrated into our daily routines. The development of new technologies and the growing demand for interactive, immersive experiences will continue to drive major shifts in the way content is produced, delivered, and monetized. Those who commit today to continuously anticipating emerging trends, investing in new content development methods, and new ways of connecting with audiences will be the ones shaping culture tomorrow.

Future Focused Initiatives

Revenue Reinvention

The pace of change and the potential for disruption is creating an urgent need to rethink and reengineer business models. What’s next after streaming? You need to explore and define new revenue models and what they should include, such as merchandising opportunities, product extensions, fan experiences, or gaming.

Next Gen Creative Partnerships

Who are your next content creators? Where will they come from? YouTube has essentially built a farm team system to develop and grow emerging content creators. Netflix is doing the same thing with its writers and producers. It’s time to figure out where and how you will find your next content developers, particularly if they’re half a world away.

Micro Audience Strategy

With so many niche communities, knowing your audience is more crucial than ever. But few have perfected the art of turning copious amounts of consumer data into killer insights. You need to figure out how are you going to learn things others don’t know and use your insights to attract and excite new audiences of consumers.
