BIG Media & Marketing, formerly Big Media Publishers, has a proud history of working with leading government, parastatal and private enterprises. We help clients to enhance their reputation by elevating their brands above the noise. We specialise in strategy development, public relations, digital, reputation management, web development and content creation. We have 20 years of track record and experience, making us veterans in a demanding and fast-changing arena.
We specialise in public sector clients because:
* We understand the unique demands of the sector
* We understand the sensitivities
* We understand the message
* We have a 20-year reputation for care and accuracy
What do we do?
We help clients realise full value out of their investment in marketing communications. We produce impactful content to support through-the-line media and marketing communications campaigns focused on communicating our clients’ successes and impact.
We tell stories about our clients. Stories that engage the imaginations of readers, and change their perceptions. Every organisation has a message for the public, one that will build brand and reputation. But communications can be a treacherous field. Messages can be unnoticed, unread, or worse, misunderstood. We help clients with what to say, how to say it, where to say it.
Our clients in the public sector include the Departments of Trade and Industry, Environmental Affairs, Energy, the Constitutional Court and GCIS. We have also worked with BrandSA, National Lottery, Freedom Park and the municipalities of Joburg, Cape Town, Tshwane and Ekurhuleni. Corporate and non-profit clients include Vodacom, Nasionale Pers, DStv, Arcelor Mittal, Corruption Watch, Yellowwoods, and Freedom Under Law.
