Finding the right Digital Marketing Agency in Dubai can be a challenge
Looking for a Digital Agency can be hard, with such a huge disparity in prices and a wide scope of work to be covered, generally the areas you would hope they would cover are:
- Social Media Management
- Paid Digital Marketing Campaigns on Google/Social Media
- Content Creation so you always have awesome photos and videos on your profiles that promote your revenue channels
- Analytics and Reporting so you know what the hell is going on!
- Trend Identification

You would also hope that your Digital Marketing Agency can help you with:
- Website Management
- Blog Management
- Search Engine Optimization
- Landing Page Design and Management with A/B Testing
- Email Marketing
- Digital Strategy
Of course the Digital Strategy is the most important aspect of any Digital Marketing Agency’s activities, the strategy is what provides guidance to every other element, and it doesn’t take a genius to figure that most digital strategies should have a focus of some degree on cultivating and increasing organic traffic and conversions.
Organic Traffic is unpaid for, ie. come about as a result of excellent SEO, paid campaigns and general management of your digital profile. The metrics of this are easy to discern with reporting tools like Raven which can also help you create a link strategy and profile.
But will you have the TIME? Running a business and managing the online presence effectively are often two demanding areas and the latter is particularly time-intensive unless you have a lot of experience. This is where the digital marketing agency comes in, or at least you would hope. Unfortunately most digital marketing agencies in dubai are rather motivated by money as opposed to improving their clients digital presence. Why would a profiteer help you increase organic conversions that they feel would erode their ability to squeeze more money from you?
The horror stories are everywhere. Haven’t heard one? Ask 5 people with a website how much they spent on their website design and development. Then go to http://www.builtwith.com and check what framework their website was built with. I did this recently and was surprised by some people and companies charging 60k AED effectively for a wordpress template that costs $60. Ok they spent 10 hours or so working on the design and populating the pages and changing the colors.. But really? Even Lawyers don’t get charge 6k an hour.
This is where we met 10 Forward, a Digital Marketing Agency in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, they are run based on the almost anarchic value of charging a fixed monthly fee for their clients and doing whatever needs to be done to make money. Just have a look at their website and check out the quality of their work, I mean check out this video:
Imagine your digital agency made this video for you for FREE. NOTHING. INCLUDED IN YOUR MONTHLY FEE. its something that boggles the mind.. we were sold and so should you be..
