  6. 6. But also, the conditions are right for a new type of partnership…
  7. 7. Media owners are more commercial than before
  8. 8. The entertainment industry is more commercial than before
  9. 9. Personalities and celebrities have become media owners in their own right

  11. 11. So the old model is a missed opportunity Brand gives partner money Media owner creates a bit of content Entertainment partner offers image rights

  15. 15. Characteristics of SUPER-CONNECTED PARTNERSHIPS 1. They have multiple partners working together 2. There are unorthodox partners – eg the scouts, a YouTube influencer… 3. They are mutually beneficial (not just because money changes hands) 4. They are multi-platform with multiple access points for the consumer 5. They work across all aspects of the marketing mix – ie instore, CRM, etc – as well as comms
