Both regional media and key federal media refer to MediaPotok when publishing materials fairly often. The secret of success is simple. Detailed description of events, constant information monitoring, and clear sequence of presentation – these are distinctive features of the online media. Basing on unbiased attitude, sharpness, comprehensive coverage of any topics, from “Our Crimea” to the Peter Pavlensky’s actionism, from a story about amazing animals to a reportage concerning the fire department workdays, and moreover using high-quality photo and video materials, MediaPotok has achieved so good rating results. It is not necessary to cover scandalous topics and come up with screaming headlines to be in the limelight. For this purpose, besides filling the resource with current media materials, it is better to hold online conferences, provide information support of events and actions, and organize competitions, lectures and trainings among students and journalists from information editions and advertising agencies.
