ST. PETERSBURG, Russia, April 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- http://www.KidsReview.ru, an independent online magazine for families with kids (monthly readership over 75 000), introduces a free and effective channel for companies to reach their potential buyers in Russia. The highly attractive Russian market remains hard to penetrate, but the democracy of Internet allows companies to address their potential customers in Russia directly, bypassing agents, customs, and localization costs, and to virtually "export" clients from Russia.
The business directory and news placement service at http://www.kidsreview.ru is a targeted online sales and marketing tool, optimal for companies that look to attract solvent Russian customers, build brand recognition and product awareness within Russia. All company descriptions in the business directory, and all stories selected for publication are written in Russian, by the magazine's editorial staff and Russian market experts, free of charge.
Official numbers show that despite the economic crisis, Russians do have the money to spend. Russian children's apparel market alone is estimated at 5.3 billion Euros (by Fashion Consulting Group). And in many sectors of Russian economy, the scarce supply lags far behind the growing demand, especially when it comes to the luxury sector. With a population of 142 million, Russia has one of the highest mobile penetrations in the world (over 100%), 3G and 4G (WiMAX) networks are widely used, with ARPU (average revenue per user) constantly growing. Each year, more Russian parents are sending children to study abroad: in the first 9 months of 2010 the British officials in Moscow, for instance, have issued 9241 student visas, as opposed to 8319 visas in the same period of 2009. Health tourists from Russia are becoming the expected guests in many European states: "Most patients choosing the Zurich University Hospital come from countries near Switzerland, the Middle East or Russia." - Zurich University Hospital spokeswoman Petra Seeburger told swissinfo.ch.

Being represented on the http://www.kidsreview.ru portal is a fast, effective and cost-efficient way for companies to promote their services and goods to the Russian market, in the local language. "70% of our readers find us, when searching for services for their kids, on the Internet," comments Victoria Krasilshikova, the Chief Editor of http://www.KidsReview.ru, - "The majority of parents that Google for places to go and things to do with kids are working parents.
