American Business Missing out on Billions Every Year by Not Monetizing Owned Media Assets

Every year, American businesses are missing out on billions of dollars by not monetizing their owned media assets. Sonder, the world’s first owned media consultancy, has today launched a global first in the United States, MAVmetric.com, an online Software as a Service that independently measures the value of owned assets, providing businesses with multiple new revenue opportunities.

This Smart News Release features multimedia. View the full release here: http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20161130005518/en/

According to research conducted by Sonder, from 57 worldwide companies, 96 percent of global businesses use their owned media assets to connect with their customers. However, only 12 percent actually know the value of their owned assets. The overwhelming majority of businesses are significantly under-valuing their owned assets.

Websites, stores, apps, social media channels, real estate, vehicle fleets, packaging and catalogues, are some of the examples of owned assets that have value to other brands and can be commercialized to develop new revenue streams.

Sonder co-founder Angus Frazer explains, “Businesses are under constant pressure to unlock new revenue streams and maximize the value extraction of assets. Transforming owned media assets into commercial assets are done with minimal risk and disruption to a business.”

“Businesses have invested billions into building their owned assets such as website, stores, transport and packaging. These assets are powerful media vehicles for other brands and have substantial media asset value (MAV). In fact, creating website video content or implementing digital screen infrastructure in stores can generate significant dollars for the balance sheet.”

“As an example of what businesses can expect, we inputted publicly available US Postal Service information* into MAVmetric.com and it was revealed that the organization is sitting on $5.7B in media asset value or MAV. This, if commercialized, could amount to $2.6B in additional revenue per annum. Furthermore, if digital screens were added to its retail stores, the US Postal Service could generate an incremental $74M a year. If they created video content on their site and attracted just 25 per cent of their website audience to watch it, they could expect a further $35M per annum.”

The patent-pending software applies multiple algorithms to a company’s owned media assets, such as their website, in-store and other physical assets, to determine the overall media asset value of the business. MAVmetric.com also calculates the annual commercial potential a business could expect to generate, the audience footprint and how to create additional media asset value in the future.

Multi-million dollar businesses like KFC have used early versions of MAVmetric.com to optimize their owned media infrastructure.

KFC Chief Marketing Officer, Catherine Tan was surprised at the additional value MAVmetric.com uncovered.

"Whilst we leverage our own channels quite well at KFC, using MAVmetric.com has been insightful in assessing their true value. We were able to assign a value to every asset, which made us consider our owned media in a new light. It is changing the way we think about communication and how we value our assets with partners."

MAVmetric.com identifies three ways to leverage your assets for material impact:

1. Commercialize your assets with other brands
2. Improve supplier terms
3. Optimize the size and influence of your own audience

With 68 percent of the companies’ surveyed saying they would try MAVmetric.com, it promises to kick-start a revolution in how owned assets are valued and commercialized.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
As data explodes in quantity, importance and from new sources, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and cloud environments grow with it.
