    'now'

    'Most advertising companies are now beginning to write completely new ads for the world market'

    Can I say 'are beginnig now' instead of 'are now beginning'?

    No, not unless you are saying that they are beginning right now, at this precise second.

    You could move the 'now', but right to the beginning: 'Now, most a/c are beginning...'.

    You could also remove "now" completely.

    Most advertising companies are beginning to write completely new ads ...
