Best of 2009: Business models

Revenue was harder to come by in 2009, but these business models put a new spin on making money:

  •  Charging competitors for preferred access to the network – CDNs, wholesaling of network APIs, quality of service guarantees for over-the-top players
  •  Whoever successfully moves Google’s Ad Words ad engine (Google itself; someone new) into the world of mobile advertising
  •  Taking advantage of billions of M2M devices plus the possibility of driving mobile penetration among consumers from 80% to 400% (every customer has multiple wireless devices)

More after the break…

  •  NOT ad-supported. Just to be different.
  •  Prepaid for wireless and, potentially, 3G broadband. Consumers voted with their checkbooks this year.
  •  Clearwire’s all-you-can-eat data. Who knows if it’s making money, but it’s how people want to consumer mobile broadband.
