CTAM Think June 2017 Recap

Key Take-Aways

  • Choose to communicate in ways that can be heard by anyone, anywhere, anytime
  • Make the message for Main Street and not just for Wall Street
  • Address consumers’ wireless pain points to drive value back to the cable business in the form of improved quality, reduced churn, broadband-oriented growth
  • Connected choices are pervasive, making the economics of the connectedness model completely different from those of the hub and spoke model
  • A customer values your product more when s/he has the complementary product than when s/he has your product alone
  • Digital success is not content and product, but customers and connections​
