What we do


Everything starts with a sound strategy. Pleiades Media will help you create a communication strategy that integrates with your overall brand plan, a strategy that will talk to your target audience.


In the communications business, relationships are key. All successful relationships, as any life coach will tell you, are built on a foundation of sound communications.


There is an old marketing adage that says. “The medium is the message and the message is the medium.” The message is all about content. Content is king.

What we’ve done

Pleiades has certainly delivered on their promise and validated our decision to bring in a small but extremely professional agency.

– Herman Singh, Director: Technology Engineering, Standard Bank –

Pleiades Media has been BMGI’s PR partner for the past 18 months. Kerry Botha and her team have been superb in assisting us with the planning and executing of BMGI’s PR strategy to date. They make it their business to understand our business. We are excited about a great PR journey ahead with expert guidance from the Pleiades team.

– Irma Karsten, Marketing Co-ordinator, BMGI South Africa –

Pleiades Media has a measured and professional approach to PR, which we appreciated. I was always confident that whatever I asked them to do, they would do – and thoroughly.

Sue Morris, Marketing Director, NetFlorist.

Pleiades Media is a pro-active, media-savvy company which always had our interests at heart and was constantly looking out for opportunities and partnerships to grow our business. I knew I could rely on Kerry to deliver, and enjoyed the collaboration immensely.

Hein Koen, Founding Director, Habitaz.

In addition to her responsibility for public relations, Kerry has also provided very useful input and counsel with regard to our broader marketing strategy. Her results could not have been achieved in the absence of excellent contacts and a thorough understanding of the media world.

Derick Boshard, Senior Partner, Heidrick & Struggles.

Pleiades Media’s unquestionable knowledge and expertise in the world of digital and printed media has seen my business gain much publicity and growth.

Derick Gideons, Director, Retail Relate.

Pleiades is a pleasure to work with. The team is unswervingly positive, constantly strives to add value to the Nintendo brand, and is always on the lookout for excellent opportunities to drive Nintendo’s philosophy into new audiences.

Matthew Grose, General Manager: Core Gaming.

Pleiades Media has an extensive network which has brought much needed cooperation between business, government and community based organisations.
