The challenge at many companies is whether or not to initiate a project or new business venture. There can be decision stagnation or uncomfortableness with whether a decision is being made without all the necessary information. There are important questions which include: is this the appropriate business for our company to be getting into? Are the required resources available? (financial, personnel, facilities, etc) What is the return on investment, both monetarily and to our brand?
These are just a few of the key questions which come into play when deciding whether to launch a new project or business. Media Edge brings extensive background and experience to assist you with these decisions. We also can assist you in the management of your project or business for the short or long term.
We will help generate executive level discovery that focuses on project goals and scope, and how the initiative will fit into the LRP, if applicable. From there the process begins.
- P&L development and sign-off
- RFP for facilities and equipment (if applicable)
- Project Management (hiring and/or development of staff and creative, editorial, production and technology resources)
- Ad sales, branding and marketing initiatives
