Arabic Social Media Management

The initial approach taken by ExtraDigital was a thorough evaluation of the current social platforms and identifying potential audiences in particular Arab countries.

Our management includes the following:

  • Creation of the audiences
  • Identifying the countries of which audiences are likely to convert based on historic data and research
  • Content Creation; this involves generating engaging and relevant ad copies in the Arabic language and would resonate with the audiences; including social posts, ads, articles, and subtitles for video
  • Optimising imagery and videos whilst accounting for cultural factors
  • Recommendations regarding landing page optimisation
  • Creation of an Arabic contact form page for enquirers

Arabic Results

Over the last 10 months working constructively with our client, ExtraDigital has managed to increase the number of Followers and Page Likes (Facebook) by a factor of over 10.

The primary focus was on Facebook as it is the most popular platform for the targeted audience and in return, we achieved:


Increase in Facebook Page Likes


Increase in the page’s Followers


Engagement rates on social posts

This in turn led to:

A staggering 56,725% increase in social/referral traffic on all Arabic landing pages on site.

The Arabic contact form page is now the most visited page from social traffic, exceeding the traffic of the Homepage.
