Digital Marketing and Social Media are breaking-out as the most important marketing platform in Qatar. Our firm predicted this almost a year ago, and it is readily apparent that the fortunes of digital marketing are clearly tied to the lower price of oil. If your company is not actively growing its digital marketing budgets, it is falling behind. Are you ready to spearhead the digital marketing and social media efforts at your company? Or are you ready to find (or manage) an agency with a digital-first mind-set?

The choice is yours, but a look at what has happened in the Americas, Europe, Asia, and even closer by, Dubai, gives a clear indication that Qatar’s run-up to the FIFA 2022 World Cup is going to be powered by a steep rise in Digital Marketing. It’s time to prepare yourself for this unstoppable trend.
