Motocom

Motocom – Motorsport Communications is a project I have been dealing with since 2009. It all started with the aim of spreading information in the field of motorcycles and racing, using a vast and easily adjustable database of e-mail recipients, but it quickly evolved to a complete agency, dealing with issues such as providing content for motorsports websites, translating and proofreading, editing press releases for motorcycle dealers, managing motorcycle racers and handling public relations for motorcycle-related companies.

Clientlist:
1. North Star – The Greek Enduro Touring Company
Public Relations for North Star
North Star is the first 100% Greek enduro touring company, which is based in Kavala, northern Greece. Due to the city’s privileged location (in less than an hour you can reach the most beautiful off-road trails) North Star offers an amazing enduro touring experience to riders from all over the world. Since the creation of North Star, I have been in charge of public relations for the company, communicating with the local and international Press, constantly issuing press releases, managing the social media profile of the company and organizing press launches in the city of Kavala.

2. Red Bull Hellas Ltd.
Providing content for redbull.gr

My cooperation with the Greek branch of Red Bull started back in 2010, when we first worked together on the “Red Bull Romaniacs” plan. Since then, I have taken part in the prestigious hard enduro rally race three times (2010, 2011 and 2012), and I have been able to finish each and every time I competed. Out of my participation in the race, I am publishing a multi-page article in MOTO Magazine, and I am also offering content for the official website of Red Bull in Greece. Since the beginning of 2013, I am an official content provider for redbull.gr, covering the field of motorsports and motorcycle racing. You can see a sample of my work here.

3. The Fuoristrada Co.
Official dealer of Beta motorcycles in Greece

One of my first clients in the beginnings of project Motocom, was the official dealer for Beta motorcycles in Greece, The Fuoristrada Co. In just a short period of time, we managed to have our newsletters published in some of the most important media of Greece (i.e magazines and websites), even achieving a publication in “Free Sunday” newspaper, which is the leading free-press newspaper in Greece with over than 200.000 readers per week. Sample I.Sample II.

4. Vassilis Siafarikas
Managing the profile of the Greek enduro champion

Our collaboration with Vassilis Siafarikas went a little bit further, as for the past few years I have been in charge of managing the athlete’s public and online profile.  Vassilis Siafarikas is one of the prevalent athletes in the sport of enduro in Greece, winning the overall classification in the Greek Enduro Championship since 2005. Together we set up his personal blog, which contains information on his racing career as well as weekly updates on his motorcycle racing achievements. We also keep working closely on promoting Vassilis’ image (sample I). In September 2011, as Team Manager of Team Greece, I lead my country’s national motocross team with athletes Vassilis Siafarikas, Manolis Skyvalos and Panagiotis Papilas in the prestigious Motocross of Nations annual race in Saint Jean d’ Angely, in southern France.

5. Giorgos Legakis
Freelance action photographer
(FIM World Motocross Championship)
With my dear friend and colleague, Giorgos Legakis, we have worked together mainly in the aim of promoting his book, called “No words, no lies”, which is presenting his work as a freelance photographer during the 2010 Motocross World Championship.

6. Word Connection
Translation agency based in Austria

A totally different project we embarked on with Word Connection, and that involved translating and proofreading all texts that were to be published in the new official website of KTM for Greece. Up to 40.000 words and phrases had to be checked, and the final result can be seen here.
