The ‘until recently’ bit is important, because I’m very pleased indeed to announce that Meshed Media has been bought by Made Media.
In fact, Ian Ravenscroft and I moved in at the beginning of the month and have spent the past few weeks kicking off some exciting new projects and learning how to work the coffee machine.
Made’s new social media services
We’ll be helping Made’s clients make the most of the opportunities provided by social media and online communities.
It’s an ever-expanding, increasingly important area, with opportunities for improved marketing, distribution and customer service as well as co-creation with audiences, new ways of expressing creativity and, well, the list goes on and on.
As a result of our move, Made now offers strategic consultancy and training in these areas, as well as assistance with social media monitoring and management. We can also help with campaign planning, auditing/benchmarking of online activity and liveblogging of events and conferences. We’re available to speak at events too.
In fact, there’s not a lot we don’t cover, so get in touch if you’d like to find out what we can do for you.
A very good fit
Over Meshed Media’s two-year span we worked with some great clients including Town Hall Symphony Hall, International Dance Festival Birmingham, DanceXchange, Sampad, Rosie Kay Dance Company, Bullring Birmingham, Apples & Snakes and plenty more. We also looked after Created in Birmingham and the Birmingham Social Media Cafe.
There’s a fair amount of crossover with Made’s client list there and that’s down to a shared passion for arts and culture and a complementary set of services. In fact, we’ve worked together on a number of projects over the past couple of years and that’s made this transition feel pretty natural.
We’ll introduce ourselves in more detail later and tell you what we’ve been up to. In the meantime, Ian and I are on Twitter (@ravonski and @ChrisUnitt), we get out to a lot of events and the coffee at Made is every bit as good as they said it was. We look forward to meeting you.
Blimey! There was quite a good reaction to this news on Twitter so I’ve collected a lot of the tweets together here. Thanks for all the kind words!
