AboutNew Media

Simply put, we’re about content that connects and tech that empowers.

We are expert content marketers and, for over two decades, New Media has been creating, implementing and measuring highly effective, award-winning written and video content for some of Africa’s best-loved brands. We have evolved into true strategic partners to blue-chip companies across many industries, helping them build lasting relationships with their customers and employees.

We have the support
We enjoy the best of both worlds. As a division of Media24 and a part of Naspers – a multinational group of media and ecommerce platforms – we have a powerful support network to call on. But we operate completely independently, allowing us all the flexibility, responsiveness and innovation of a fiercely passionate small company.
We employ the tech
Creating focused and compelling content is half our story. Making sure it’s engaged with by its intended audience is the crucial conclusion. And for that we develop and use innovate digital tech to drive insights that are specific, measurable and achievable – helping us continually improve our content strategies and creative execution.
And we win the awards
From inception, New Media has been recognised by its peers, winning over 200 awards across myriad content categories. These have been local – New Generation Social & Digital Media Awards, SA Publication Forum Awards, PICA Awards and Galliova Awards – and increasingly we have received international recognition too. In the past two years, for example, we have won accolades at the International Content Marketing Awards in London, and at the Content Council Pearl Awards, Eddie & Ozzie Awards and Content Marketing Awards in New York.
