Corporate Development

Frank N. Magid Associates’ consulting services are aimed at helping clients to formulate and then implement an effective corporate strategy. These strategies are predicated upon a thorough assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of the client’s brand, core competencies, competitive positioning, and operations. A corporate development strategy addresses a number of questions, including:

  • What are the markets and targets that represent the greatest revenue opportunities?
  • How should the company allocate its resources across various corporate initiatives?
  • How will new technologies represent both threats and opportunities?
  • Which investment opportunities will complement the company’s current product offerings and grow its business?

Case Study

Leveraging Magid's Mobile Expertise, Unique Perspective, and Capabilities to Identify Opportunities in the Mobile Location-Based Advertising Landscape

A division of a leading US wireless carrier that develops and provides geographic information systems wanted to analyze the location-based advertising space to guide their branding, product development and advertising strategies. Applying its mobile expertise and strategic insights, Frank N. Magid Associates conducted an exhaustive deep dive of the location-based advertising landscape, including an analysis of competitors and best practice models in and outside of the industry. Magid also conducted executive interviews with media buyers, ad agency buyers, and advertisers to identify the needs, attitudes and behaviors towards location-based advertising, and the current and future intent to invest in location-based advertising. Magid’s unique perspective of key audience, advertising and technology trends across media platforms provided a filter to analyze the viability and growth potential of the opportunities. The landscape analysis, primary research and Magid’s recommendations guided the client’s entrance strategy into mobile advertising. The success of the engagement has led the firm to continue to leverage Magid’s media and strategic expertise to inform several other key mobile advertising strategies.
