Cooperative Media Database

A web-based solution designed to help you efficiently identify, reach, and engage traditional media contacts and social media influencers.

CMDThe media field is ever changing. In an industry that’s all about relationships, it’s become harder than ever to keep press contacts up to date while trying to identifying legitimate social media influencers. With all of this change, how do you keep up with it all?

We’ve partnered with Cision, the most comprehensive influencer and media database in the industry, to provide arts organizations with the same tools as major agencies but at a cost that’s affordable.

Through the Jersey Arts Cooperative Media Database (CMD), arts professionals can now target their message to the traditional media outlets they care about the most while promoting their organization’s brand through social media influencers.

CMD is cosponsored by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts though the Discover Jersey Arts program and available to organizations registered with the Jersey Arts Marketers (JAM) network.
