Monthly Update, September

Dear partners and colleagues,

The first autumn month has passed, which means it’s time to share our news for September with you!

We conducted a survey to find out what small business entrepreneurs think about PR and came to a curious conclusion: more than half of small businesses don’t quite understand what PR is about, while the same number of respondents say that PR is an essential part of doing business. The material was published in several sources. You can read it, for example, in CMS Magazine by this link.

We’re pleased to announce that we’ve finally relaunched our free online intensives for entrepreneurs as part of the “Gromche!” Award. The first event took place on September 28 at the MBM.mos site. Four amazing speakers shared a lot of interesting and useful information on personal brand and networking.

We also have the first regional partners in Russia and the CIS countries.

Several media outlets expressed support for the award, including business portals Rusbase, Biz360,, Spark and even ProBusiness TV channel.

The head of our agency, Valeria Mingova, acted as a PR expert in the marketing analysis program of VTB’s portal Closer to Business. You can see the cast here.

Of course, we can’t help mentioning the updated PR Doctor website and the “Gromche!” Award website. We also started to promote our Instagram where we regularly share the latest news from the agency and PR in general. We do that in the “Gromche Media” section of the new site as well.

Yet, we have a lot of ideas to experiment with — will tell you in November!
