Since December 2009, ZMS began offering online services in-house to further propagate success in media relations for each clientʼs brand. Website development (blog, commercial & more), presence consultation, search engine optimization, social networking management and online video production were added to compliment the growing demand and need for full media integration for a brandʼs success.
