But what can be said though is that if you are certain you have those skills, may I suggest opening up a marketing company in Russia? I for one do not have those skills as I am struggling to get my website desired traffic. And that is just a website.
On contrary to belief, high budgets don't really get people anywhere these days. Innovation does. Hollywood, contrary to how much is spent, is on a decline simply because few movies actually do well, and the return can be great, but money spent is absolutely ridiculous. Add to that, there is so much rehashing that there is a lot of people just absolutely pissed off on Hollywood. Recent Ghostbusters movie is an example of that. As well, Apple's first designs like iPhone and what not was impressive. Now time has gone by and new iPhones are pretty much nothing. There isn't anything to them that is different besides its shitty OS. Guaranteed that they spent more on marketing than they did in any design since the first iteration of iPhone. But what still gets them sold is the name behind it and that is pure marketing.
At this point, you expect any other leader would change this. They wouldn't or couldn't. Simply because it isn't up to 1 guy to control every aspect of a nation of roughly 147M people. People have responsibilities as well. Putin is making it easier to do business in the nation, but as mentioned, the ball is also in the hands of the people as well. Russian products in terms of entertainment is growing outside of Russia, particularly in China and CIS countries. But there is so much control of information that rarely does few of these make it here in the west. Even China's movie industry struggles outside of its own or Chinese named products.
Simply Putin needs to look at Japan , that all he needs to do. at the positive things they do.
Look at Japan ,how they compete VERY WELL
with Americans. and even defeat them in many business. Sony Playstation beats Microsoft Xbox One. and Sony brand is sony brand. is a class on its own. they are a world wide leader in technology and electronics.
In that meeting of Mcfaul with Russian students.. contrary to what you think. he was right.
he told did you know what i mean? yes , he was saying America is better than Russia in technology that everyone love to have. and he is right.
And he was taking advantage
of americans business and development clear leadership to convince Russian students ,to abandon their loyalty to their motherland ,and join their side. And promote the american way.
So american government knows very well how to influence people for real,but Putin doesn't know that. He sees things in terms of numbers. in terms of Good economy or bad. He wants GazProm to become a monopoly in the world. but also to become a world leader in organic food. then Putin will be happy with that. And this is serious mistake. is Horrible.
For a country like Russia , that have so many powerful enemies ,having a good economy
is not enough. This is what mr Putin don't understand
Russia needs to be powerful too. and what is Power? Power is Leadership and influence.
And cheaper energy bills is definitively something that every nations wants.. something
that will give Russia influence. But is not something that will make people feel in love with Russia. see?
And here is were Mr Putin get it all wrong. My Turning Russia into the world biggest energy exporter ,and world biggest natural food exporter. Is not going to help Russia become
an influential nation , that it needs to be ,for the rest of the world to take Russia seriously.
So yes do the business all you want ,and get all the money you can. But Russia priority in their
nation development have to be ,to make the world fall in love for Russia. Thats what Russia needs. So that it no longer its enemies wants to destroy her.
So im glad ,Russia was banned from the olympics in brazil. and everyone knows United States is behind it. that way Mr Putin will see that no longer can count in sports as a way to advertise Russia image in the world , and will perhaps get a clue (with some luck) and at any other thing , that he could try to influence the world ,things Americans love and respect. And that THEY WILL NOT BAN
mmm.. what that could be? mmm
what things Americans respect from Russia? so hard.. mmm.
This is were Putin need to spend all his money, all his salary ,everything. needs to be
throw there. Space is something everyone love ,admire and will love to see conquered. This is where Russia needs to look and invest heavily. and Fuck Sports. they are only useful for a week
of glory ,but im sure everyone already forgot of Sochi ,just a year later. but no one will forget
the first man in space. the first man in moon ,the first man in mars?
If Putin knew ,what the world thinks ,what humanity more admire, then he will be building rockets with his own hands , and have a space budget at least 10x times higher and not reduce it.
and really push very hard ,as if Russia existence depend on it , in creating the first
space tourism agency. using something like a space shuttle. how many people you think will love to travel around the moon orbit it one time and return to earth in a luxury space shuttle and land later ,in an airport ,like any other plane does? Really? This will be Spectacular , it will paralize world media. and this is how you defeat Americans destructive leadership in the world.
by making Russia a very attractive nation. Even the billionaire elite who wants to destroy Russia will be fighting this time for a ticket to the moon orbit and return. Naturally such travels will be
for very rich people ,but with time ,technologies will be created to make space travel more and more cheaper.
instead of what Russia is today.
Not sexy.. says the European commissioner. You really think Europeans love to be invaded by 2millions of muslins? they need to eat that shit,because thats what their american masters tells them to do. or else lose their relation with the american world will end and will become isolated.
I assure you seph.. if Russia was clearly leading in space and landing in the moon or mars with humans , they will TOTALLY be opposed to fight with Russia and will instead seek to become allies. Because they will see for the first time ,it really needs Russia and that Russia is a leader and have a place in the world.
To cut the space budget is a terrible mistake. , to focus on turning Russia into a gas monopoly
and organic food monopoly ,and only that. is a mistake. Russia needs to be an attractive nation
for the already developed nations in the world ,and not just attractive to Asia ,and why the west ? so that they no longer sabotage Russia security ,economy and peace.
but if they want to give up in space ,then they can try the entertainment industry ,or semiconductor industry or even Sports cars , Influence is where Russia needs to fight. in the things people more like to have or more amaze them. or in the things ,that people spend their hard earned money ,after breaking their bones in their jobs. if Russia industry can produce the things people more like ,then Russia will become a very influential nation in the world. very attractive , a very respected one.
Then it will not have to worry about NATO anymore ,because it will not exist. Europeans will leave NATO if they see that no longer needs the American Business at all to become a development nation if they have Russia.
the ultimate influence will be Mastering space travel. imagine how much "Stealing the show"
Russia will do traveling to the Orbit of any of this places and with manned missions?
or even better landing too in mars moons?
Or creating business that rival Apple ,Intel or microsoft,it will be not as awe as
as dominating space ,but still will be very good. but something even better will be Entertainment industry. US and EUrope love that. and spend a LOT of money on it.
What dominates the video game entertainment industry?
Which countries dominate video game entertainment industry ?
1)USA , 2)Japan,3)Europeans 4)South Korea 5)CAnada.
China is doing a lot of business too ,in the art department , many of the games released
hire Chinese studios to produce the game art.
Video Games is creating a revolution in technology ,that will have never been possible
if it wasn't strong. like Virtual Reality head sets. that also can be used in the military industry
or in space. but also promoting music industry too. and for the first time , Movies are made
after sucessfull games ,and not the other way.
How much money the video game industry makes world wide?
100 BILLIONS $$$. per year. try to digest that. This surpass the defense industry ,Energy industry,music industry and hollywood. in terms of influence that is.
RUssians private developers have some games here and there. but not really jumping in the market in a serious way. Even Poland or Canada is stronger than Russia in the video game entertainment industry. And to make things worse the CIA are now infiltrating on it ,to also demonize Russia. painting Russia and CHina as the enemies. and they as the good guys ..
in battlefield games you need to kill Iranians,chinese and Russians.
In Metal gear solid latest games you kill soviets because of their repression of the poor
afgans. imagine that , not mentioned NATO invasion of Afganistan or IRAQ. lol
Putin's vision of Russia is totally ignoring what society more love and likes , he is still to attached to the soviet glorious past and not looking a modern world ,what is doing. and his enemies are not ignoring it. while Putin complain of how unfair the west is ,with Russia ,and how is not taken seriously, Americans are busy influencing things ,positively and negatively. This is a major problem. That Russia is not doing much to influence things. he really believes that things will be better ,once Russia no longer depends on Europe and get his economy moving again.
and thats a short sight view of the problem he faces. of Russia not projecting a major leadership on anything in the world. that really matters other than its military.
On a positive note.. at least Putin understand he cannot isolate itself from the world.
So he is always open to Europe and even to Americans. This is good. and is the only reason
that have allowed Russia to not become totally isolated and even get some support from Europe in ending the economic sanctions in Russia.
about promoting a website , Youtube is a good place for any promotion. Russia is on the headlines every day ,but not for the right reasons ,instead of how Russia "agression" . So you
can name any video with the name of Russia.. this or Russia that. and show the technology they working. Promoting anything is like elections in politics. You need to call the attention that you exist and that you have something to offer. in your case information.
What Putin could do ,to help shape the economy of Russia to a modern one .,,
Is pick a bussiness ,develop with Russia government money and once the business running
and making profits to sell it ,to any Russian investor of their trust that is patriotic and keep the business in Russia. Russia government could start a Game Developing company ,and release one game that is decent , lets say game for children , that every Russian family will love to buy for their childrens and after that sell the company so others continue running it and create real games that compete with any other in the west. Movie industry does not produce as much money with all the piracy ,so i will stay away from it ,unless is cheap movies . Music too ,is not making a lot of money now. other than live concerts. Still Music industry is important because it helps dramatically to promote fashion and culture or any idea. it create followers and fans.
Russia needs to create fans too ,and not just have a boring economy that nobody cares or feel proud of it.
