Business Plan: Find Your Ideal Strategy

Lightcast.com has all the technology tools and services available to build, and to integrate, any monetization model into your websites, mobile apps, social apps and TV apps. But there is no "one size fits all" when it comes to your business plan and revenue strategies. You may not need to monetize your media assets. So let's clarify a few questions first:

What are the goals of your multi-platform publishing strategy? Presumably to maximize viewership growth. Correct? But why build a growing viewership? Is it to:

  • Spread a message? (you may not need monetization)
  • Educate and inform the public? (you may not need monetization)
  • Promote your company’s products and services? (you may not need monetization)
  • Monetize your content via advertising?
  • Monetize your content via subscriptions?
  • Monetize your content via PPV transactions?

Or all of the above? If the later three are part of your business plan, then you landed on the right page.

Now – honestly: how many other OVPs and CDNs have asked you these questions in order to assist you in finding the most effective solutions to your goals and strategies?
