The Interview

At, we wanted to know how Macheva-Raykolesku manages to lead by example, and this is what she told us:

What were the driving forces behind the foundation of your business, MagicOutdoor?

I have always carried an entrepreneurial spirit within me. I inherited it from my father, and I have always known from a young age that I would start my own business. I have been a great employee, but I am better at leading, creating, and generating new ideas that I put into effect. MagicOutdoor is not simply a print studio but a factory for creating magical outdoor advertisements. We print advertising materials by initially creating visuals of how they will look, doing the design, and then installing them. Therefore, we are an entire circle of magical advertisements. MagicOutdoor is my first and oldest child since it was founded in 2007, before my two wonderful daughters were born. And what has driven me back then is that I am very creative and imaginative, and the advertising space is where business and creativity meet. Of course, the experience I had already gained as a media partner and event planner at the point of establishing the company has also helped me by giving me some courage. MagicOutdoor seemed like the logical sequel of something of my own and, at the same time, creative, entrepreneurial, and business-oriented.

What qualities are required to become a successful entrepreneur, and is a dose of magic needed too?

In the first place, the successful entrepreneur must be creative and capable of creating and generating new ideas. The ability to not only look but also see, not only hear but also listen precisely to the outside world and get inspired by it is vital. It is essential to analyze everything that surrounds you and yet manage to turn it into a successful business idea that corresponds to your business’s vision. Another critical quality entrepreneurs need to have is the ability to never give up. The thought of taking care of your employees who have families on their own doesn’t let you give up on your business. And in third place, you must be very organized because you are organizing your workday and the workday of all your employees. Being organized, passionate, determined, creative, and analytical are crucial to becoming a successful entrepreneur. However, a dose of magic and luck always helps things move forward in alignment.

Can your advertising business grow without you right now?

Yes. I took a break from the office for approximately three years when my younger daughter was born. I have five fantastic, independent employees who do not need me to be there constantly. I have given them my trust that the operational work will be done with precise attention to detail and at the highest level of quality. The only piece that needs to be added to my team is the ability to find new clients independently since I am still the leading source in bringing in clients.

What is the substance of social media and digital marketing nowadays, in your opinion? Will it ever replace traditional advertising?

Social media marketing such as Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Youtube, TikTok, and Google Advertising is the future of advertising. Printing ads and billboards will most likely fade in the next ten years; I can’t predict the exact number of years, but it is expected. Undoubtedly, the future belongs to digital media marketing, and statistics clearly show this. Traditional media such as TV, radio, and press lose their advertising budgets as outdoor advertisements do. The main focus of marketing and advertising nowadays is directed at TV and digital media. But there is one thing for sure – digital media advertisement will soon displace the conventional marketing approach.

Magic and Emotion – Minimalism in Art, Interiors, Architecture and Life

How do you connect the core of your business, print, to the entire digital marketing sphere?

Our only choice is digitalizing our business to keep up with the constantly changing world’s needs. We are increasingly thinking about using digital media to affirm our already established business and create an entirely digital-oriented marketing company in the future. In the past few years, I have gained experience in digital marketing by taking courses, practices, and training. As a result, I am now a consultant in building a personal and corporate brand in social media. By taking risks and experimenting, I see and prove what works in social media and explore its opportunities to establish my brand in multiple social media channels. Compared to around a 10% advertisement budget for internet marketing in the past, this budget has risen tremendously to 50-60%.

How valuable is the approach to different target groups to create a successful advertising campaign?

A well-suited approach to targeting is the base of a successful advertising campaign. This is where it all starts. Some of our clients already have their target analyses. However, we can suggest where to position the advertising materials based on where their target is placed. For example, if there is an outdoor advert like a billboard about to be created, we give our clients suggestions on the locations where to find the target groups for their advertised products or services. Targeting has to be extremely specific, narrow, and precise and should cover essential aspects such as age, gender, social status, family, etc. Only then the advertising campaign works and fulfills its goals.

What do indoor design and decoration mean to you, and how do you implement them in your business with MagicIndoor?

In 2020 when the worldwide pandemic started, I finally had enough free time to create this project which has been a dream of mine for a long time. I view MagicIndoor as an additional branch to the portfolio of services we at MagicOutdoor provide our customers. Among the most considerable benefits we have with MagicIndoor is that we create everything in-house and don’t depend on external provider companies to develop and materialize our products. Pictures, paintings, stickers, mugs, and wallpapers are provided by MagicIndoor and are created with our existing productive force. I genuinely admire beauty as an artist, so I have always carried the dream of MagicIndoor within myself through the years. Besides our personalized products, we also partner with interior designers for the interior branding and design of stands and stores in malls. We have already realized over four stands and the complete interior design of one store in Mall Paradise. There are many more exciting upcoming projects in front of us for the year that we are looking forward to!

What is the secret of building a successful advertising business?

Passion is the foundation of every successful business and is a force that drives you to build yourself as a brand. You have to find where your passion is and follow it. I am very critical of my artwork as an artist, and I always think about how the world will perceive it. This leads to precise attention to detail and high quality in every aspect of our work. However, the key to maintaining a successful business is the team. You can be the best professional in what you do, but without your team, you are nothing. Every person on my team is specialized in a different aspect of the working process depending on their job, whether it be designers, printers, installers, or even accountants. Each team member is a part of a working mechanism and has their perfect place. To summarize, it is passion, a team, and a dose of magic!

What goals have you set for 2023, personally and professionally?

Spending more time with my family, my children, and my husband while doing the things we love together, such as traveling, going to the theatre, going to the movies, etc., is my most significant personal goal for 2023. On the other hand, my primary professional goal for 2023 is for MagicOutdoor to gain more worldwide exposure this year. Additionally, we are working on MagicIndoor delivering its products all over Europe. In February, we are going to brand a major exhibition in London which will mark the beginning of MagicOutdoor going on the international scene. We aim to become a genuinely global company as the Bulgarian market already seems narrow, and we are working on this in 2023!
