Business Model Enhancement

Frank N. Magid Associates works with a variety of companies to research, refine, evolve and/or develop new business models. By applying experience-based frameworks and perspectives, we assess existing business models, determine areas for improvement, and identify and build out new business models. Key elements of this process include identifying unique value propositions, examining operational approaches and profit mechanisms, assessing the impact of technological and competitive change, and determining the client’s ability to execute these changes. Changing or evolving business models can be challenging, and Magid is there every step of the way to ensure that the new approach is executed successfully. The business model evolution process answers key questions, including: 

  • Where does the extraordinary value reside?
  • For what internal business unit is the company developing this strategy?
  • What are the sources of business value?
  • What will allow the client company to develop its business model?
  • What must the client do to make the strategy work?
  • What are the critical success factors needed to execute this strategy (e.g. key partnerships, organizational requirements, etc.)?

Case Study

Applying Magid's Television Station Expertise and a Market, Station, and Audience Analysis to Improve Station Products and Revenues

Leveraging Frank N. Magid Associates’ 50+ years of expertise in the local media space, a local television station partnered with Magid to understand how to differentiate and enhance its products to take advantage of product strengths and the vulnerabilities of its key competitors. Magid implemented an intense consulting process including a market analysis of ratings and competitor content across platforms, and an in-depth station analysis of product strengths, weaknesses, and vulnerabilities. The comprehensive external and internal analysis was complemented by primary research to assess market audience ideals, identify brand attributes and opportunities, and identify potential breakout strategies to move the audience measurement needle. Based on the analyses and research findings, and through a lens of its local station expertise, Magid provided recommendations to improve current products and develop new products that took advantage of market opportunities, station strengths, and viewer needs. Magid provided consulting support and progress assessment to drive change, and continues to make consultation visits to the station to ensure tangible progress and ROI.
