The business press is full of examples of how firms use business models to identify and frame or reshape new markets. Yet to-date our understanding of how business models affect market-making has not received much consideration by the marketing literature. This papers sets out to explore the use of business models in market-making through an assimilation of the business model and market-making literatures and the examination of an illustrative case heralded in the media as the ‘way forward for market making’ – Nintendo. The paper concludes by considering the implications of business models as a tool for market-making and its implications for the way we think about the growth of the firm.
