Who are we?
MaEstro Public Relations helps create and implement publicity campaigns for independent artists and not-for-profit arts organisations in Melbourne.
Behind the title is local actor, writer and producer, Mark Salvestro, who has assisted with the publicity and producing of more than 10 productions and events over the past three years. As a fellow artist, he knows first-hand just how many roles a creative must juggle, and all too well how much time these tasks require to put on a successful show.
Prior to stepping into acting, Mark worked as a journalist at The Monaro Post newspaper in the Snowy Mountains, NSW. He then went on to study journalism for a period in Sydney where he was awarded First Place in Communications and Media in 2012 at the University of Notre Dame.
Mark now lives in Melbourne and continues to perform, write and produce, and is Marketing and Publicity Manager for North of Eight independent theatre company.
What do we offer?
Writing, editing, and distribution of media release
Liaising with the media
Creation and distribution of Opening Night/VIP invitations
Creation and distribution of newsletter/E-flyer
Listing event on local 'What's On' websites
How much does it cost?
Each campaign really is unique, so it can be difficult to give a price before consulting with the artist. There are all kinds of variables, including the specific goals of the artist, the length of the season, and the lead time before opening.
The approximate cost for a 3-week season with a four-week lead time, including writing, editing and distribution of media release and liaising with the media, ranges from $400-500.

“I worked with Mark earlier this year. He was extremely organised and diligent with all marketing and publicity for the show, very thorough in everything he did, super organised, took feedback/suggestions well, and was always very efficient in getting back to me. He's worth your time and money!”
