The role of media has changed dramatically in the age of the internet-driven, 24-hour news cycle and the proliferation of social media.
Today, the term “media” is used and abused, and it can mean different things to different people but in the world of business, the value of media cannot be ignored.
The media landscape is getting more complex for industry executives who are trying to make strategic decisions and for consumers who are deluged with new forms of media and consumption.
Trying to define media in the digital space is like shooting at a moving target because it is evolving so rapidly.
But with this change, comes new opportunities to unlock dormant value for a business by using media in new ways to increase sales and capture additional market share.
No longer is media a nice-to-have, but rather it has evolved the quintessential enabler of new competitive advantages for businesses of all sizes.
A hyper-connected world has unleashed a new media monster that is shaping the current and future landscape of business.
