Focus on b2b

We`re focused on informational b2b marketing.

Clarification for curious people

What does "baginet" mean?

Baginet is a weapon of the XVIII century, which a long knife with a double blade and a special handle that could be inserted into a gun and used as a bayonet. This gave an advantage in hand-to-hand combat immediately after the shot was fired. So is our agency: in addition to standard marketing technologies, we always have something creative and unusual in stock. In our logo, the baginet is represented as a dot on top (handle) and an arrow (blade). This is a graphic symbol of our motto "From goal to action".

Destination Sales Manual

A map and a guidebook are excellent companions for every tourist, but most often they can be obtained upon arrival only. We develop detailed presentations of a region or a tourist destination that can be both a training tool for travel agents and an interesting guide for a tourist (to prepare for a trip). Our presentations are always asked to downloaded during webinars or be sent by link during seminars, because they contain necessary and useful information only.

While working with Baginet

Our Principles of Work

Systematic Approach

You can achieve the goal only by setting tasks correctly and developing an action plan for the future. You will always receive from us a detailed step-by-step plan with dates and price for each marketing activity. When making a schedule of mailings or webinars, we always proceed from the idea of training a travel agent, providing him with the most detailed information necessary for sale: from simple to complex, from studying the product to its sales.


As mathematics is the queen of all sciences, so regularity is the basis of any effective campaign. Even the most inexpensive marketing tool used monthly (for example, a newsletter) will allow agencies to get to know your product better than an expensive offline activity made once (for example, only a stand at an industry exhibition once a year only).

Ideas and Creativity

Main part of our job is bringing ideas and creativity, ranging from unconventional topics for mailing lists to creative events (marathon webinars, phone challenges). In large and small projects, we try to add a bit of originality, surprise and non-banality (for example, we never award prizes at events for business cards - it's boring; but for winning a quiz, the best question to the speaker or the one who first came to the seminar is always welcome).


In addition to standard IT solutions for marketing (mailing services, webinar rooms, etc.), we actively use various know-how (for example, an online appointment system). Baginet uses its own CRM system based on Redmine, modifying it if necessary. When choosing a particular platform, we necessarily analyze existing solutions and choose the best option. And so far we are the only ones who produce audio lectures for our courses.

Proper Russian Language

A graduate of the Faculty of Linguistics (this is Natalia) and the winner of school Olympiads in literature and Russian (this is Marina) guarantee that the texts of your mailings, press releases, articles for the media will not only be factually correct, but also absolutely literate. We not only know, but also always follow the rules of Russian spelling and punctuation.
  Have you found a spelling mistake on the site? We organize for you a free webinar with agencies!

Sound Approach to Modern Trends

Despite extensive experience and expertise in tourism, our main wealth (and advantage) is a common sense. Therefore, we do not recommend to create a hundreds of accounts in social media to everyone, we do not rush to participate in each exhibition and or workshop. And we don't raffle prizes at our webinars to attract listeners.

Calendar of Workshops and Travel Fairs

We follow all industry events in CIS - travel fairs, workshops and exhibitions, organized by both tour operators and marketing agencies.
