About Newsclip Media Monitoring

Newsclip is a brand tracking company with over 30 years’ experience in media monitoring and measurement. We monitor all media channels across South Africa and in 51 countries throughout Africa, where we constantly expand our reach of new media channels.

We help brands, agencies, businesses and organisations find the content that they have created, and content created about them by others, in the sea of data available in the media today.

Our solutions address every media monitoring need; from print, broadcast and online monitoring to advert tracking and social media monitoring. We make it easier for you to access and interpret your media coverage through our Gate5 online platform and the RedBook, a customisable e-book.

Newsclip partners with Focal Points, a media analysis and research service provider, to bring our clients in-depth media intelligence and accurate insights into their communication efforts.

We also provide PR tools to help brands and agencies succeed. The Target Media Directory helps PR professionals find detailed information about the media and create media lists for campaigns. mypressoffice is an online newsroom and press release website where marketers can create their own press offices and distribute their content.

Newsclip’s in-house IT development department focuses on continuously improving our service offering to deliver on customised client requests and align with industry trends. As a leader in the industry, we are the front of innovation, providing meaningful insights, targeted media intelligence and enriched data.
