WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO...
We launch ExpoRadio. An international developers' conference in Bristol was the first client for this innovative service designed to add a new level of engagement for large sector-specific showcases and expos. This creates a pop-up live 'talk radio station' dedicated exclusively to the event, packed with professionally-hosted interviews, discussions and content focused on that event's specific sector, attendees and influencer VIPs. It's designed to engage with that even t sector's community via the event's official website, all without duplicating keynote sessions and ensures that it reinforces the value of attending future events in person.
A new trading name. We've redefined ourselves to better reflect who we are and what we do for our clients. Since early 2017 we've used a trading name "EMC, the Easy Media Company" rather than our company name (Ecomedia Collective cic). You'll find us via EasyMediaCompany.uk as well as EasyMediaCompany.com.
We've moved! After a marvellous year at Bristol Engine Shed,, we're back in our original stomping ground of Stokes Croft, the home of Banksy and the 'gritty' heart of 'alternative' Bristol. We've spent 2017 as part of the new hub community at Redbrick House in Wilder Street, only five minutes' walk from Cabot Circus, Bristol Bus Station and - most importantly - some of the most interesting cafes and coffee shops in the city. What's not to like?
We've launch two new services for organisations in the SW UK. Over the last few months we've introduced a pair of new services for clients who want to take what they do 'beyond the room'.
EventShareLive (ESL) provides a simple and effective live webcasting solution for conferences, seminars and similar events in the Bristol/Bath regions and across the South West UK.
Inside Voice helps large companies and organisations create regular audio podcasts, either to improve their own internal communications or to engage better with new customers and existing clients.
Our DIY Media podcast series becomes more and more popular. For the last two years we've been making a monthly podcast about DIY media-making and social broadcasting. 'Amplify Us' brings in a panel of studio guests to explore the psychology, the philosophy, the tools, trends and tripfalls of being your own media-creator - and all with a distinctly Bristol flavour. Our download numbers put us in the top slew of the more than 300 thousand different podcasts available online right now - and you can hear it for yourself totally free here
OUR LITTLE JOKE: "EMC" = EINSTEIN'S THEORY OF SOCIAL MEDIATIVITY
'EMC' is a handy little abbreviation.
Obviously it stands for 'EcoMedia Collective'. It also works for 'Easy Media Company'. But most usefully, it's also a great reminder for what we help clients unlock within themselves...
...because with our help, 'Everyone's a Media Company' too.
Whenever you need to create your own media content to share online, we can help. We'll bring the equipment, the people and the know-how to make it happen for you, quickly and effectively.
You just get on and do what you do best: we'll do the rest.
When you share, they care
The Ecomedia story began in 1996 when founder Kyle Hannan project-managed the creation of the first community radio station in Nelson Mandela's home district and then went on to deliver the world's first combined Jewish/Muslim internet radio station. Though separated by a decade, the two projects had many similarities: projects needed to create their own media quickly and authentically, then share it online using popular media platforms - all without their own tech staff or large budgets.
These experiences set the foundation of the EcoMedia Collective: to give clients a simpler, more effective way to make their own online media, then help them use it to share what they do, better and more widely.
"UK research shows that while most companies know they need to be using Twitter, or Facebook, or YouTube etc, their biggest problem is the lack of time and staff with the right tech skills to make it happen".
What does this mean?
Quite simply, that whenever you need to make a video for YouTube, create media recordings of your events or conferences for sharing via your own website, generate professionally-voiced promotional slideshows for presentations, or share your seminar with colleagues around the country - or the world - live as it happens, just contact us. We'll bring the equipment, the people and the know-how to make it happen for you. You just get on and do what you do best: we'll do the rest.
Don't be invisible
In this online 24/7 world, it's crucial to record and share achievements with the right people, at the right time, in the right way. We help clients overcome this unavoidable reality: If their successes aren't being shared on Facebook, Google, YouTube and Twitter, then they're completely invisible to most people out there.
Go beyond the room
Why's this important? Because it makes them more independent and gives them more options when trying to promote their activities. Nowadays more and more organisations are arranging to do it themselves as and when they need to.
All done for you
It's quick and easy. When clients need it, our team becomes their team. Because we turn up and do it all for them, they don't need to take more time, learn anything extra, employ additional staff or buy new equipment. Things don't come much simpler than that.
Lower cost, higher impact
Budgeting hundreds instead of thousands? Even when client funding is limited, we roll up our sleeves and pitch in at the most appropriate level, offering subsidised services where we can. After all, what's more important than sharing success and supporting the bottom line?!
Every time a standard-rate client uses our service, it helps another under-resourced but important community project get noticed. That's because we've promised to use up to 50% of our profits to subsidise media-making for positive projects - and that's always a good thing.
