Great results begin with the right approach.
Market Research & Cost Analysis
It’s typical for most project owners to question the expense of bringing in a consultant. The bigger question is can using a consultant be considered an expense or a cost-saving measure? Great Consultants are usually SME’s subject matter experts who not only understand the cost of the acquisition but the cost of ownership as well. Expertise means granular assessments at the use–case, needs analysis, market research to intangibles such as access to their professional resources. Typically consulting focuses on costing, market forecasting and ROI. However Subject Matter Experts (SME’s) for a specific purpose are often needed to evaluate or complete a project. A consultant should be a trusted third-party who acts in the best interest of the end-user, company or unit. Consultants may develop a statement of work (SOW) that will be the roadmap to a successful project. While not always required, some buyers will intentionally work with consultants who are not associated with amy potential vendors or contractors. Separate Consultants and contractors is a normal practice within government and larger corporations. However, smaller companies and startups are realizing that turning to consultants who can get the job done faster cheaper end better than their own in house resources makes dollar and sense.

Content Design & Management
After years of developing every imaginable type of content delivery system, we have learned that some concepts remain constant. Content will always remain King. However, most content gets old quickly. The need for great content and user experiences will never change. What will change is delivery methodology and audience taste. What are the most amazing realities we have seen with content is new technology and delivery methods have not killed: Newspapers, printed books, vinyl albums, broadcast television or magazines. The reason is simple, as long as creative minds keep coming up with attractive content the public will continue to consume them. At the same time, internet page views, in-place media, digital signage, social media and podcasting are growing exponentially.
Its more important than ever for designers and content developers to work closely together with an understanding of UX. No matter what the media the user experience must remain first and foremost. When we started this company we named it Media-Now because that’s exactly what we wanted to be. Media Now, no matter what the format, no matter what the delivery system, no matter what the purpose, no matter where the audience was located.
