journalist & media databases,
created for you on demand.
Customised, relevant and freshly-checked.
requires a darn good media list.
Outsource your media lists to Encyclomedia and receive media contacts expertly researched and matched to exactly what you need for your next news release or media event.
No more sending out media releases to vague lists of journalists that can only harm your reputation and get your emails deleted, or worse, blocked.
For good media relations, quality is always more important than quantity.
Many journalists receive hundreds of PR pitches a day and no longer have patience for those PRs who don’t ensure their emails are aimed at the right journalists for the right press release.
Encyclomedia will get your media match-making off to the right start with all the media contacts that exactly cover the topic or industry for your next news story.
If an email bounces, or you think we missed an important contact, we’ll be on standby to investigate and update your list for 90 days after you receive it, at no charge.
Simply pay a once-off price for the exact list you need, when you need it. Click over to see the pricing for the individual databases, and note that discounts can apply for multiple lists.

Some frequently asked questions:
What beats do you cover?
In what format will I receive the database?
Will the media list be mine to edit & change?
What media types do you include?
What if emails bounce back?
It happens to the best of us. Sometimes a journalist that we’ve just checked and verified will be assigned a new email address the very next day. We never know where and when the next media change will happen, but we offer this added-value service for your peace of mind:
For three months after you receive your database from us, we’ll be on standby to investigate any email bounce-backs or other media changes you might come across. Gratis, no charge.
What if you missed a media contact I need?
South African media contacts only?
How long will it take to get my list?
However, if you need a list urgently, we can provide you with an interim list to give you a head start while we continue verifying the remaining journalists’ details. An interim list will include all the journalists already recently checked.
When last was it updated?
Some database providers will say ‘updated daily’, but take a moment to consider what that means. How many contacts were updated daily? Was it that radio producer you need to call, or that online content editor you need to email? Probably not.
With thousands of journalists out there, it’s simply not possible to keep everything perfectly up-to-date all the time using the traditional ‘updated daily’ method.
Which is why we don’t do that.
Instead, we’ll freshly create the exact list of contacts you need to match your client, project or PR campaign. We’ll ensure that nothing is older than 90 days, although most of the journalists would’ve been checked within the last few days of your order.
And remember that if any media changes happen, we’ll happily investigate and update for another 30 days after you get your list.
Any more questions?
Choose a single media database for a once-off price, or order multiple media lists and receive a discount. Every list will be freshly checked just before you receive it.
