Mountain Media

We help our clients win the argument

We assist our clients to achieve their goals by hitting the right audience with the right messages.

Whether that means a front-page splash, a television news package, a persuasive opinion piece, a digital media strategy, a radio interview, or any of the other myriad communication options available today - we make it happen for our clients and they get the results they’re after.

We believe that in a rapidly evolving media landscape one thing remains constant: a compelling yarn is a compelling yarn.

We don’t have a ‘cookie cutter’ model; instead we tailor specific strategies to each client, because we believe that flexibility and nimbleness are critical to successful communication.

We don’t do jargon and PR waffle; we believe they are too often used as a substitute for hard work.

We are frank, available and transparent to our clients and let our results speak for themselves.

We are proud of our pro bono work, most notably our long-term media management of the Asbestos Diseases Foundation of Australia.

Mountain Media

Media strategy

We work closely with our clients to ensure that their media and communications strategy is custom-built to promote their specific goals. We have extensive experience in campaign media, crisis management, profile raising and applying media pressure to decision makers. We also provide effective and goal-oriented media training, key messaging and media event management. With clients around Australia and the world, Mountain Media consultants are regularly working across the nation and internationally.

Media liaising

We have impeccable contacts across the complete gamut of Australian media. We enjoy excellent relationships with influential journalists and other media professionals, and work hard on those relationships for the benefit of our clients. We pride ourselves on ensuring our clients are linked with the right journalists, producers and editors.

Writing and editing

We are able to assist with drafting, editing and placing the complete range of written pieces, whether that be opinion pieces, media releases, key messaging documents, reports, website copy or any other type of text. We have an excellent track record with drafting thought pieces that get picked up and read in the mainstream media, as well as more niche publications.

Communication service coordination

Unlike other communication consultancies, we do not attempt to be a jack-of-all-trades via vertical integration. Instead we offer a hub model, in which we draw on our extensive experience to link with appropriate and trusted third parties where necessary to deliver website design, quantitative and qualitative research, ad buying, and video and audio production. We pass on the cost of these third parties directly, without attaching any mark-up.
