When the economy slows, local retailers often suffer. Specialty retailers suffer more, because it is harder to get potential customers out of the house and into the shops. Add to that the trend toward online shopping, and what do you have: either a problem or an opportunity.
“If you can’t beat ‘em join ‘em” is the new motto of many retailers. They have realized they cannot stem the tide of online shopping, so why not take advantage of it? With digital marketing you can sell just about anywhere in the world.
And where is digital marketing booming these days? In the Middle East. And that is where smart marketers are looking for additional sales and customers. Digital marketing in the Middle East is booming for a number of good reasons, as illustrated in this infographic by ArabCrunch.com.
With political reforms, burgeoning technology, and rising educational levels, the Middle East is an incredibly receptive and growing market. With a high level of web and smartphone usage, the region is primed for explosive market growth, and that growth has already begun.
Wherever markets are booming, that’s the place to be. And with digital marketing, it is easy to be wherever the current best markets are. Right now (and for the foreseeable future) that is the Middle East. All you need is the expert knowledge of local markets and buying triggers to smooth the way.
