About Margaret Gee’s Journalist Account

Go To Sign Up Page Green Journo

For the last 30 years, Margaret Gee’s Australian Media Guide has contacted Australia’s media professionals asking for updated details.

Now we have turned that scenario upside down, giving you the option to update your details yourself. In return, we will give you free access to a ConnectWeb database - a favour in exchange for another.

That means that the details you give us through your Margaret Gee’s journalist account are no different than those we’d otherwise be contacting you for on a regular basis.

 

Stay in the loop with the Media Guide

Anyone who is anyone in the media industry is listed in Margaret Gee’s. By updating your details and selecting the specific areas you’re interested in, you increase your chances of receiving the stories that are most relevant to your audience.

So make sure you choose the categories you’re interested in when you set up your account, and check in regularly to ensure your details are up-to-date.

 

Choose your free database

And since you are helping us by keeping your details updated, we’ll give you access to a live database here at ConnectWeb. You choose which database you’d like access to when you create your account.

Your free subscription will be ready for use as soon as we’ve verified your details and activated your account. This may take up to 24 hours, Monday- Friday, but don’t worry, we’ll make sure to send you an email as soon as it’s good to go.

The databases you can choose from include all ConnectWeb live databases. You’ll see them listed below, hyperlinked for you to read more about each one.
