“A stunning bunch of people”
Do you think that it is a coincidence that the species with well-developed vocal chords rules over all others? Turns out communication is important!
At Mediaserve we match your need to communicate with our well-evolved brains to craft a communication strategy and execute on it, either on your bidding or with your staff.
Crafting a communication strategy could be as simple as facilitating a brainstorming session with your core team or as involved as spending a day on the road with your sales staff to understand how they take your brand to the customer. We’ve done both.
Mediaserve’s team has created above and below the line communication plans, whipped together last-minute launch plans and worked over weekends to draft a crisis communication plan, sell it to all stakeholders and meet the media on Monday-morning.
Speak to one of our directors about our experience in defining your message and taking it to your client (be it B2B, B2C or internal) and let’s help you communicate.
Writing may be a speciality resource, but we certainly don’t restrict our creativity to only include the written word.
At Mediaserve, we contract with some of the finest photographers, videographers, virtual video virtuosos and sound engineers in town. By using specialists, we have created some truly special projects, such as recruiting a fashion photographer to curate a photographic exhibition of a luxury car to letting your hotel manager blossom in virtual video as he takes customers through a new venue.
Combined with our team of writers and our pedantic project managing team, we can script, direct, develop and deliver on your content needs – leaving you with one point of contact – us!
Over the past few years we have built up quite the network of hungry, educated and fast-typing freelancers. We prefer them media-savvy, so all our writers have spent the first part of their careers in newsrooms, resulting in deadline-respecting, adjective restricting, to-the-point writers.
Our team of writers have crafted everything from web content to white papers, from speeches to advertising copy, from menus to radio scripts and everything in between.
All content is checked by the commissioning editor and a sub-editor, so you get it on time, clean and in any of our beautifully varied South African languages.
Remember that time when you sat in the back of your venue and realised that your CEO wanted a cardioid microphone in stead of the lapel mike that they are preparing for him? Or that time when something looked amiss and you only realised later that you didn’t drape the speaker stands? No, neither do we.
With a combined 300+ events under our belt, we have some of the best checklists in the business. Our co-ordinators have seen it all and don’t fret in front of their client, our liability insurance is in place and even our sound engineers dress appropriately.
At Mediaserve we can execute on your idea, while remaining in the background, and we can help you come up with novel ways of making your event special and memorable.
We left the 80s and 90s with a Star Trek inspired vision of the future. Technology was going take over all the grunt work and give us more leisure time. So why do we still sit with 10 administrative people chasing non-responders for our upcoming sales conference?
Using our powerful and proprietary web-platform, we can handle your RSVPs or train one staff member to handle it from his or her laptop. From invite design to finding out who is allergic to shell fish, our system handles it with ease.
Our digital RSVP system gives you full transparency, full control and a complete audit trail. Heck, it can even SMS your non-responders and they can answer straight from their phone.
Mediaserve’s RSVP system has been used for anything from a fifth birthday party to a big financial services client’s annual gala. Let us show you why.
You’ve just stumbled onto the future!
At Mediaserve we have partnered with some of the brightest web-savvy wizards to create a media hosting and distribution service with no equal.
We host and distribute any content, including press releases, documents, high resolution pictures and newsletters to a list supplied by clients and a constantly-updated pre-screened media list of journalists and editors in Southern Africa.
With turbo-charged servers and enough storage, you can keep your content online forever and distribute and share it as you please. This powerful service has an ever growing list of features, so best we buy you coffee to explain how this will change the way you communicate.
If you truly believed that form follows function you would have bought a cell phone with an audio jack.
Our team of designers have two things that count in their favour: An eye for aesthetics, which is something that can take years to perfect, and a healthy respect for a deadline. At Mediaserve, we believe in getting the professionals involved, from the name tags through to the vehicle decals and physical branding.
Think for a second about your own information-gathering habits.
You don’t page through the phone book, you simply search online. And once you have found a couple of sites that suit your search query, you start judging them by their appearance and the convenience of finding what you are looking for.
With our team of content creators, our web specialists and our pedantic project managers we make website building easy and efficient. And (importantly) we make sure that it fits your brand and your budget.
It may be a simple cap with an embroidered logo. It may be pens, notebooks and memory sticks. It may be uniforms for your brand activators. Or it may be that bottle of Shiraz you only find at the estate if you wink at the wine maker.
Mediaserve loves finding the right corporate accoutrement to round off your event or activation. We brainstorm ideas and present you with options, we source it and negotiate the best price, we brand it if needed and we sign off on quality and delivery.
