The Case. A large-scale PR campaign in the runet
Placing publications at not one, but at several dozens of media sites is quite a troublesome procedure. It is necessary to take into account the forms of payment, time of release, the editorial policy of media, requirements to the uniqueness and other factors. One of our clients faced with the problem of executing payments from abroad. It was necessary to pay for about 40 publications in the media of Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan.
A client’s company specializes in investment immigration. It helps people to obtain citizenship, or residence permit of other states for making investments in their economies. Branches of the company function in six countries; the central office is located on the territory of the European Union. The main activities are concentrated in the Caribbean region and the European Union.
Each PR campaign of this client is a large-scale event with quite a substantive budget. Immigration for investments is usually available to wealthy people, so most of the publications are to be placed on the pages of top national online media. Some regional publications also provide information support.
One of the main requirements to us is high-quality, unique SEO optimized content for productive public relations and its guaranteed placement in the media according to the developed media plan.

The customer needed to publish about forty unique articles, news, press releases in the media of Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, and Azerbaijan. The subject of the material was preferential conditions for obtaining citizenship in the Caribbean countries.
The main difficulty of such a large-scale PR campaign is a financial logistics in international payments.
Creating such an amount of content is only part of the problem. Even if we assume that the texts have already been written, it is necessary to organize and pay for their publication, to supervise the release of materials, and their relevance.
The problem is that the client needs to pay for all the placements from abroad, and most of the media in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Azerbaijan do not work on foreign trade orders. The process of payment in such situations takes a lot of time and requires a lot of resources for coordination, contracting and other routine paperwork.
