  What an Advertising Agency Can do For You


I opened my first company that rendered services to the Russian-speaking community back in 1993. At the time, I struggled to reach Russian-Americans in California due to the little advertising opportunities available. The idea of creating of my own advertising vehicle was borne naturally out of a need to advertise my company’s services. That is how bi-weekly advertising Magazine FACT came to be.

Magazine FACT allowed my associates and I to promote our services to the Russian community. At the same time, other businesses benefited from advertising in our publication and our clientele grew. We were very motivated by the success of the magazine and worked hard to improve the publication, eventually turning publishing and advertising into our main business.

Since I got into the advertising business more than 20 years ago, media resources and opportunities have evolved to become more sophisticated and advanced. I am talking about e-marketing, digital media and social media. American Russian Media, Inc. is constantly adding new resources and communications channels to its portfolio. Today, our advertising agency is well equipped to develop advertising campaigns to fit budgets big and small for our clients in California, the U.S. and worldwide.

The forward-thinking minds at ARM flex their creative muscle every day to come up with a strategic approach to each campaign we work on, as well as executing tactical projects. Some of our specialties include promotional ideas; design; advertising for print, radio, television, and Internet;  advertisement planning, space and time, research and surveys; and other such services for clients entering and succeeding in the market. We have enough knowledge, skill and experience to help many companies enter the Russian market successfully increase awareness, brand and sales through a targeted and effective advertising campaign.

An advertising agency is an extremely important tool for every company. Contrary to common opinion, an ad agency doesn’t cost extra money but rather saves money through wholesale prices on advertising which the agency receives directly from publishers and media directors. Since advertising agencies often receive their payment through commissions received from the media outlets they place your advertisement in, you get the maximum value of the agency’s expertise and advice for free.

I look forward to working with you to create an advertising campaign that optimizes our resources and your budget.
