  1. 1. The Inquirer Group and MobileJavier Vicente D. RufinoJrufino@inquirer.com.ph
  2. 2. The external situation (overall)• It’s a TV market; print has only small share of reach and advertising spend• But it’s an affluent, influential share.• Print is the rudder of the media ship.• Consumers are moving rapidly to digital.
  3. 3. The external situation (mobile)• High mobile penetration (over 90%)• SMS and voice revenue flat; data the next frontier• Smartphone usage being pushed.• Tablets where mobile phones were a decade ago (pricey status objects)
  4. 4. The internal situation• The old print business model is chugging along, but can’t and won’t last forever.• Digital revenues are there but not “there yet.”• Diverse business models in Group• How to manage the digital transition?
  5. 5. Where mobile comes in• Add new revenue streams/business models to Group to replace old ones• Help extend reach of Group brands to previously unserved segments• Drive traffic to other platforms and enhance cross-platform effects• Equalize the playing field with broadcast competition
  6. 6. More specifically…• Apply a freemium “glide path” approach to monetizing content on mobile• Use replica technologies as a transitional phase to quickly secure revenues and footholds.• Develop mobile-native content to further deepen footholds and effectively monetize.• Maintain a platform-agnostic approach; ecosystem engagement but not entanglement.
  7. 7. Yet more specifically…• Acquired a mobile development firm to boost in-house skills and control.• Worked closely with telcos for better revenue arrangements.• Worked closely with all platforms so that mobile is viewed as an enhancement, not an existential threat
