Abstract

The case describes the inception of the firm, the talent base of its senior executives, and its innovative and patented business model, known as Attention Brokerage. The case focuses on a specific decision problem faced by CyberGolds team of senior managers early in its lifecycle: how to modify the companys business model and communication with its members, in order to encourage repeat visits to its site and to provide a clearer understanding of where CyberGold credits may be spent by members.
