old mediaThe podcast is now live for your enjoyment!

The panel session was moderated by Jon Mew from IAB UK and he was joined by Lucy McLean from BBC Sport, Eamonn Carey from Kiip, Rick Gleave from Fairfax Media in Australia, Claire Valoti from Weve and Patrick Barile from LoopMe. The session was held at Itnig in Barcelona and was sponsored by LoopMe and Kiip. Audio production by Mark Bridge at TheFonecast.com.

James Cooper shared some very useful notes from the session if you don’t get chance to have a listen. You can read them here.

Some of the questions posed include:

  • What are the challenges in creating and managing mobile media properties?
  • How do you assess which platforms and where and how to allocate your limited resources?
  • How do you bring your staff along for the ride when all they’ve known is old media and the business models that go along with that?
  • And is there money to be made, if so, where is it?
  • Who is making a success of this and how?
  • Does mobile advertising work, and if so, how?
  • What’s the role of mobile marketing?
  • What do consumers want and how much are they prepared to pay for it?
  • And is this an opportunity to invent something completely new rather than rehash online models for the mobile world?
  • What is the future for our media world?
