We specialize in most popular bloggers, opinion leaders we know personally and work with directly.

Senior executive’s blog goes live – an industry ﬁrst We launched Ocakovo Brewery VP Inna Kochetova’s blog in June 2010. It was probably the ﬁrst-ever online diary of a senior executive about “the human aspects” of work. Between June and November 2010, we have been able to turn Irina A. Kochetova’s blog into a source of information and comments for the media and industry resources. 13понедельник, 5 марта 12 г.
“Blog Spokesman” has a fashionable ring to it Back in 2010, when we were designing a social media communications strategy for the Sverdlovsk Regional Governor, we came up with a new position – that of a blog spokesperson. The position is almost like a media spokesperson, only this communication specialist would focus on online opinion leaders. The blog spokesperson position became official in the payroll of Sverdlovsk Regional Administration – a ﬁrst in Russia. Everything has been just ﬁne in Governor Alexander Misharin’s communications with bloggers ever since! 14понедельник, 5 марта 12 г.

Sometimes government policy can be changed in a laid-back, informal setting This is not an office party, it’s a round-table discussion on a bill to equate beer with wine for regulation purposes. Yes, you can discuss very serious matters in a laid-back setting: thirty leading experts representing both sides of the controversy got together in the comfortable setting of the Ochakovo Company Museumand were joined there by journalists writing for top-tier nationwide media. The ruond-table discussion ended in a minor sensation, when a speaker for the Russian Alcoholic Beverage Regulator said the government should 20 support breweries and relax the terms of the new bill.понедельник, 5 марта 12 г.

Ambient Media in Moscow city parks Acting on behalf of our client Ochakovo Brewery and Soft Drinks Bottler we implemented a social project that involved installing environmentally friendly branded “park and forest furniture” sets in city parks and recreation areas around Moscow (shown in the photo). We timed the action to coincide with Moscow Day, but we had to work hard all summer to make it happen: not only did we have to make sure the tree stump benches would be made to specs and on time, but also we had to negotiate with all the key people in charge of city parks. We implemented the whole project as a turnkey basis. 22понедельник, 5 марта 12 г.

Life Placement: Short on words, long on real actions Ice dancer and singer Anna Semenovich enjoying a tall glass of Ochakovo kvass, Angelina Jolie looking at a Veranda ad, and guests at an International Political Forum that featured the Russian President and members of domestic and international political elites are pleasantly surprised by the great-tasting Ochakovo beverages, which is uncommon for events of this caliber. You can explain the beneﬁts of a beverage a thousand times, but letting people taste it even once is much better. Letting opinion leaders taste it and share their impressions and photographs is 23 even better.понедельник, 5 марта 12 г.
Media training and coaching We offer our clients regular media training sessions, always using speciﬁc examples of real materials and actions. We offer these learning opportunities as well as crash coaching sessions for speakers immediately preceding press conferences or public presentations, and also training programs for media spokespeople, marketing and sales employees, as well as regular coaching for CEOs in effective interaction with the media. 24понедельник, 5 марта 12 г.
Research and monitoring We can ﬁnd very precise, effective and efficient solutions for communication challenges owing, among other things, to an extensive research and monitoring base. Before designing a solution, we interview industry experts and opinion leaders, and then initiate comprehensive media monitoring. Using just one media monitoring service cannot provide a complete picture. This is why we use many of the most respected services, and also monitor blogs and social networks on our own. We make the results of our research, as well as 25 additional information on relevant subjects and issues constantly available to our clients.понедельник, 5 марта 12 г.

How we work We bring structure to the chaos of communication, augmenting standard PR actions by common sense and strong relevance. We strongly believe in the effectiveness of routine day-to-day PR work, when inspired by a bold, original overall idea, and leading to a speciﬁc outcome agreed with the client in advance. We are happy to share our knowledge, our ideas and solutions, and our tools with our clients, and we are very careful about meeting the requirements and following the procedures of the client company, providing all reports and documentation in a format acceptable for the client. We love the essence and the core meaning of things, and we do not like “diluting” the essence with dispensable add-ons, so our solutions are written without unnecessary verbiage, and our implementations are free from unneeded actions. We’re seasoned professionals, but we’re also empathetic and fun to work with. 27понедельник, 5 марта 12 г.
