BUS.2 : Defining new business models: Working with price point zero?
Wednesday, 07 October 2009, 09:00 - 10:30, Room C

For many activities consumers do not expect to pay, forcing suppliers to rely on advertising revenues or to create complex bundles of devices, applications and services with cross-subsidisation. Some applications and services are launched without a well focused business model, waiting to discover how they are used in the hope of later finding a way to make money.
KEY QUESTIONS: - Are expectations of "free" services an unreasonable constraint on new business models? - How does bundling affect the value chain? - What are the metrics that advertisers expect from new services?
