Local agencies also place ads in the same newspapers, only in Russian.
As they are situated closer, speak in plain Russian, and are physically available for satisfying women's curiosity, they have very limited but constnat flow of new applicants.
They provide permanent cash flow but seldom are the main source of income. Either it's a group romantic tour with socials, or an individual tour, the agency has a fair piece of it.
The more successful the agency is, the more letters its girls receive.
The more letters the girls receive, the more eager they are in recommending the agency to their friends.
The method of work will be whether selling addresses or membership, or combining both options.
Western agencies also offer gift delivery, translation and email forwarding services.
The average price per address is $10, translation - $8-15 per page, and email forwarding - $4-8 per page.
The addresses of women are very seldom verified, and the women are almost never contacted on a regular basis.
Competition on the marriage market is rather tough, and active searchers move from one agency to another trying to find one that will really help.
The others stick to one agency, make friends with agencies' personnel and their visit is a way of socializing.
The more men join it, the more letters the girls receive. On the downside of joining bigger agencies is the high competition between male clients in winning hearts of female members.
