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.
