Strategies for Managing the Media Meltdown [Presentation]
The recession has accelerated systemic changes in the media landscape: audiences are fragmenting more, taking more control, and seeking inexpensive – or free – alternatives. The music industry is looking like the coalmine canary for print, and TV and filmed entertainment are looking over their shoulders. Meanwhile, the Internet is driving social media and online video, with mobile on the horizon. And Forrester executive surveys show that tech business decision makers are even heavier users of social media than the masses. This presentation will look at trends on both the demand and supply side of media, and sketch out strategies and tactics for messaging in the emerging new(est) media.
Presenter: David Card, vice president, principal analyst, Forrester Research.
