Social Media? Media and Communications Advice? Crisis Communications? Media Strategy? Magazines or Newsletters? Campaigns? Press and PR? Videos? Training? An Event?

We specialise in making your messages meaningful. Advertising you and yours. And getting your story across. In the right format. Fast.

Content is key. Our team of experienced professionals use their traditional journalistic talents, political clout and strategic skills and combine that with their digital and Social Media know-how to target your audience – whoever that might be.

At Martis Media we tailor our style and level of work for you. It all starts with a friendly chat to discuss your requirements. We then work closely with clients to establish a fool proof media messaging plan – at an associated affordable cost to suit your budget.

What we do

“It is more important than ever to have a punchy and polished presence in the media.” says company founder Royston Martis (pictured right).

Choosing the right platform and way of telling people your news and stories – internally and externally – is crucial. 

Why would you not want to market yourself?

Our dynamic team of word wizards work closely with clients to help them inform and influence the wider world.

It is good to talk. And we are Social.

What our clients say

Royston was delighted to accept an “Outstanding Contribution” Award for #MartisMedia’s communications work at the recent Police Federation Detective’s Awards

No time for Twitter?
Forgetful about Facebook?

To be relevant on Social Media you simply have to be regular.
Your updates have to jump off a page…

Social Media

Our talented team use years of journalistic experience to professionally manage your pages, ensuring you have the appropriate tone of voice – and at the right volume! We make your Social Media messages meaningful.  

We work with a range of clients to ensure what they want to say is heard by customers, people within their own organisations and the wider world. If you have a website, we have a proven track record of driving traffic towards it.

We do more than just regurgitate press releases and post links. We capture and condense – pulling out the lines that will grab readers’ interests. And then tell the world about it with words, pictures, url links and meaningful messages.

And we can do all this in condensed characters!

Years of building Social Media followings for clients and interacting with their customer base has helped keep them current and crucial.

Whether it is updating with relevant news and views, delivering a campaign message, hosting an interactive web chat or live topical tweets from conferences and events – we specialise on promoting the great work of our clients.

Sometimes It Can Be
Hard To Be Heard!

Here Are Some Of The Ezines We Produce...

Using Videos To
Spread The Word…

We work with clients across Britain on getting their message out to the wider world via video.

Videos

Whether it be highlighting outstanding bravery, examples of brilliant police work or to showcase in a meaningful manner what a charity, business or organisation does, we can be relied on to put together short, sharp and fact-filled films that are must watch. 

The videos work wonderfully well on the big screen at Conferences, on client’s Websites and sit superbly on Social Media.

Our top team will work with you on the video’s production – making sure all the right people are in the right place at the right time. The video’s filming – making sure the right questions are asked of the right people. And then the editing – making sure everyone sounds and looks great.

And importantly that your key messages get across.

Working with our colleagues at Go Film, we team up with the British Transport Police Federation on their Awards of Excellence – with our videos praised by leading politicians and senior police officers alike.

And have also produced films for Police Care, Hampshire Police Federation (left), Thames Valley Police Federation and Essex Police Federation. 

Feel free to contact us to discuss how we can produce a video to meet your budget.
