social media ads Saudi Arabia

In the past decade, Social Media Marketing in Saudi Arabia has grown in power and has changed the way services and products are advertised. Social ads are now one of the quickest and most effective ways to connect with our target audience.

Most social platforms have a paid advertising option, with Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn being the leading platform giants right now.

If you are a business that does not currently advertise on either of these platforms, it would be beneficial for you to research or speak to our dedicated social media team about the benefits of advertising through these channels. You will gain some incredible insight into what it can do for your business return and growth.

After an informal chat, we would have a more thorough consultation with you where we would discuss your industry, investments, business objectives and future plans. This way, we can develop an in-depth understanding of your business and match up the right social advertising platform to your brand.

Facebook is considered to be the go-to, all-round advertising channel with high versatility suited if you are wanting to target a range of generations. However, if you have a bigger budget and your main target audience is commercial rather than domestic, Linkedin may be a more suitable option as it can provide you with more relevant traction and a greater return-on-investment. Twitter, on the other hand, is more fast-paced than other channels and typically attracts a younger audience, so a more innocent and youthful brand may benefit greatly from this platform as opposed to the more sophisticated, adult-based LinkedIn.

In terms of precision and detail, there are enormous amounts of data on social media platforms which makes this one of the best forms of advertisement for demographic targeting and conversion tracking.

Imagine this example on the left as an advert on the TV – social media adverts have exactly the same impact on an audience, however the key difference separating social from offline methods is the vast amount of data you receive online. This gives you significantly more power over who should see your adverts, when and where they see them, as well how many times. (Not to mention, it’s a much cheaper alternative!)
