The examples mentioned above also show how media are named. Usually, the name of a media or a broadcasting company is pretty straightforward and it tells potential viewers, readers or listeners what they’re about to get.

It’s very difficult to come up with a unified consumer profile for media and broadcasting companies. For a start, media come in an array of formats – television, print publications, online media, cable networks, etc. In addition, there could be specialization within the respective field. There are news channels, entertainments, sports, beauty, parenting media, etc.

Media also work with B2B customers on occasions. Such interactions typically focus on larger advertising, broadcasting or infrastructural development projects. Successful media are equally skilled in the execution of both B2B and B2C interactions.
