A strategic marketing and development alliance was announced today by 13 online businesses that serve the needs of millions of media professionals every day around the world.

The alliance – United Global Media Brands (UGMB) – comprises a new generation of online ventures. With thousands of subscribers and high-volume traffic, they offer press and broadcast journalists, photographers, public relations, advertising and marketing executives the opportunity to job hunt, recruit new talent, improve their skills at major international training schools, trace old friends, network, plan campaigns and much more. There’s even an ‘agony uncle’ service offering advice and coaching for everyone in PR, from young agency executives to senior company managers.

The sites have been created and privately funded by two British journalists – David Davis and George Hopkin – who are now planning further expansion of United Global Media Brands in the UK and North America during 2005-06.

Davis, founder of Mediabuddies and askdd said: “UGMB offers a unique umbrella for building a business of speciality branded websites serving the worldwide media community. As part of our expansion strategy, we are talking with owners of other media industry sites who have expressed interest in joining the alliance, venture capital firms and financial institutions that are starting to invest in the Internet again, and corporate advertisers wanting to reach such an influential audience”

Hopkin, founder of the PR Press Network which comprises 11 successful media sites including ReachRadio and, said: “There is tremendous synergy among the UGMB sites and services. This makes our expansion in 2005 that much more exciting – when we introduce a new service we already have a huge user base of ‘net-savvy media professionals who have asked to be kept informed about these kind of developments and new additions.”
