About US

high quality, results-driven PR

Media Jems is a respected provider of a range of Marketing & PR services, including Traditional PR, Editorial, Social Media and Digital.

Founded by former Saatchi & Saatchi Scholarship student and First Class Honours Marketing graduate Jenna Owen in 2006 and initially focusing on B2B PR, Media Jems started life as a one-woman band, providing Jenna with the opportunity to continue her career whilst also raising her young children from the family home in Norfolk. As Jenna’s reputation for delivering high quality, results-driven PR grew, so did her client base and less than twelve months after starting the company, she was running a fully fledged agency with staff on payroll.

Now over a decade later, the agency has a long and credible reputation for delivering exceptional campaigns and enjoys many affiliations with other companies as well as a steady stream of repeat business and referrals. We like to think of ourselves as a ‘hybrid’ agency, combining the delivery and scalability benefits of a larger PR supplier, with the personalised approach and value for money of a smaller agency.

Testimonials

what our client’s say about us

I was a client of Media Jems for 5 years and I was absolutely thrilled with their service.
My goal at the start was to build a strong profile within the Small Business Market as a social media expert. I was staggered by the amount of opportunities to be featured that Jenna and her team created and as a result our brand grew, traffic to the site grew and I achieved a superb speaking profile. I can strongly recommend Media Jems.

– Penny Power OBE

As a thought leader and speaker on any subject your profile and its management are vital. In my case I spend my life talking to organisations about what it takes to be exceptional and that means the people, support and representation around me have to be exceptional. If you’re personal brand or that of your company is important to you, don’t retain an average PR company, talk to Jenna instead!

– Cris Beswick, LetsThinkBeyond

MediaJems has done a fantastic job for me, and in particular, they pick up on the messaging work I produce myself, complementing it and going beyond. They have been especially good at getting me coverage in the business magazines. Do have a chat with Jenna and see if they can help you raise your profile and get more media attention.
