In 2011, the majority of
the most valuable companies
were oil companies.

In 2016, 5 years later, all of the
largest companies were digital,
and half of them have online
marketing as their core business.
This is the Age of Online Marketing.

We took a look at large, publicly
listed German companies.
And created an index representing
10 major online companies.

Each box represents the market value of each company compared to the other companies.
COMBINED MARKET CAP:
€48 BILLION
Source: OMR Research, Google Finance, Market Cap on Feb 17, 2017.
Nearly €50 Billion is massive.


And yet, it is dwarfed 1:40
by the dominant platforms.
And we live in a platform economy.
GAFA: €1.964 TRILLION
COMBINED MARKET CAP
COMPARED WITH GIX…
So perhaps, the comparison is unfair.
We took a look at the second tier of
global platforms, think numbers five to eight.


They are all leaders in major categories.

AMAZON’s marketing is carried out through the products themselves.
Prime, Video and Echo are powerful marketing tools.

TESLA is built on storytelling from the biggest business
influencer on the planet (25 mio. views on Youtube
per month). This is an essential part of the product.

THERMOMIX revamped the tupperware party to compel
customers to use and promote their hard-to-understand product.
Thus, it became a platform for 3rd parties to produce content,
i.e. cookbooks and hugely succesful magazines.
