Folder Media is a multi-discipline organisation with experience in business strategy and planning, licence applications, platform and technical solutions, brand licensing, market intelligence and audience research, launch planning and online opportunities, as well as radio programming.
Business strategy and planning
Folder Media has considerable experience in the development of corporate strategies and the writing of business plans for PLCs, licence applications and new radio services.
After initially establishing the full scope and parameters of the proposal with each client, we undertake a market overview to ensure that the business proposal reflects the marketplace in which it is planned to exist. We then assist with the preparation of detailed business plans, including Excel modelling, with fully detailed assumptions and sensitivities. The plans and modelling is then presented to the relevant parties.
Folder Media has a very successful track record in project managing and winning analogue and digital radio licence applications.
Over the past 18 months, we have been involved with over 15 applications, of which 8 were awarded to the consortiums that we were advising:
We advised National Grid Wireless on the preparation of their business model and plans for inclusion in the application for the second national commercial DAB multiplex. This included forecasts of digital take-up and preparations of audience projections for each radio service, as well as strategic advice on the scope and scale of their proposals.
We have advised and assisted MuxCo in the preparation and submission of 10 licence applications for new local DAB multiplexes.
