Matter Communications Launches Co-Op Satellite Media Tour (SMT) Offering

Studio-C by Matter to Leverage Video and Media Experience to Help Brands Share Their Stories to Consumers across the U.S.

NEWBURYPORT, MA – Matter Communications today launched its co-op Satellite Media Tour (SMT) service, offering a powerful option for brands looking to secure broadcast, radio and online media coverage via a controlled messaging vehicle that can reach millions nationwide within the span of a few hours.

Co-op Satellite Media Tours (SMTs) remain a cost-effective way to get a client’s message across in an organic way, via media, and directly to the consumers by compiling a cohesive story among other non-competitive brands that are like-minded. Matter will leverage its expertise in video to ensure brands are displayed in a visually compelling way, and craft scripts closely with clients to create maximum impact in the story shared. Most SMTs will consist of a series – ranging from 10-20 segments – within television, radio and the online media space.  Interviews will be conducted over a two-, three- or four-hour time period and some are live, while other may be taped and air later in the week to ensure the news is still timely for clients.

Studio-C by Matter offers a dedicated on-site, live broadcast studio and a team of media experts who routinely – and seamlessly – conduct interviews with an array of media outlets across the country to effectively share a brand’s message, drive interest, and ultimately increase revenue.

Matter will offer a range of SMTs throughout the year, hosted by tech writer and influencer Jeana Tahnk, Associate Editor at Cool Mom Tech and contributor to Mashable, Parenting, Parents, Scholastic Parent & Child, Daily Candy Kids and many others.  Tahnk’s commentary on technology has also been included on ABC 7Live, HuffPost Live, The Modern Parent’s Guide and the New York Times and she is often sought after as an expert in navigating the world of parenting and finding products that prove beneficial within the technology or parenting space.

“Our SMT service offering is a natural extension of the visual storytelling Studio-C is already doing for businesses across a myriad of industries,” said Scott Signore, Matter Communications Founder and CEO. “By combining our media and brand connections with our broadcast capabilities and creative talent, we’re able to offer our clients an impactful vehicle for targeted brand awareness.”

Themes for this year’s SMT offering will include, but are not limited to:

  • Managing March Madness: “Fitness gadgets or activities to get you through the winter slump”
  • Earth Day: “Gadgets and accessories to help your tech be greener”
  • Mother’s Day Gift Ideas: “Fun and useful gadgets that any mom would love”
  • Dads and Grads Top Gift Ideas: “Techno-Dads and grads rejoice”
  • Back to School Essentials: “Products to help the kids, and the parents get back into the swing of new school year”
  • Holiday: “The hottest tech gifts for this year’s holiday season”
