The UK media industry includes traditional media, such as TV and paper print newspapers, as well as more modern forms of media like the internet and social media. The entertainment and media sector already represents a huge opportunity, growth is expected to continue at a very fast rate for at least the next few years.
Media is an umbrella term. It incorporates many different sub-industries. News media generated nearly £6bn in revenue for the UK economy in 2015, but this is dwarfed by the advertising industry, which is worth triple that amount: £18bn. What’s more, the Department for Culture, Media and Sport revealed in July 2016 that creative professionals and businesses within the creative industry are contributing £84bn a year to the economy.
Mobile, TV, internet, and social media remain some of the strongest sub-sectors of the industry, but e-gaming and virtual/augmented reality are expected to contribute significantly more in the coming years.
Business View Publishing, Platinum Business Partners, and Dor-2-Dor offer attractive B2B media franchise opportunities. Opportunities abound within the consumer sector, too. AboutMyArea enables you to establish a media community that concentrates on your local area, while SkyCam combines technology and media by enabling franchise owners to make money with their own drone franchise.
