The Power of Dubai Influencers

 

With all the state-of-the-art infrastructure, luxury lifestyle, and vibrant city life, Dubai is undoubtedly the leading tourist destination in the Middle East. What makes this “City of Thousand Dreams” or the “Golden Jewel of the UAE” even more fascinating is the fact that it has also become the global hub of influencer culture, where both the established and aspiring social media personalities flock to make the most of the vast opportunities the city has to offer.

Influencer marketing, as the Tribune observes, is the city’s golden ticket to industry dominance. With Dubai Influencers surging in numbers, the advertising industry has finally seen the importance of influencer marketing in the region. 

According to Global Media Insights, a staggering 98.98% of the UAE population are active social media users. This means that 9.84 million people from the country consume social media almost every day.

This is particularly evident in the 11th annual Arab Youth Survey, which found that 9 out of 10 young people use at least one social media platform daily and they do so more often on their mobile devices.

The widespread use of social media in the UAE is seen as a golden opportunity by the influencers to grow their following.

As per the recent YouGov.com survey, 3 in 4 UAE residents follow some kind of social media influencer. A few years back, a similar survey of 1,000 UAE residents conducted by the Dubai PR agency BPG Cohn & Wolfe found that 71% of the residents aged 18 to 40 are happy to take advice from influencers before making a purchase. 

The survey also concludes that 63% percent of those polled are more likely to buy fashion and beauty products based on what influencers recommend or endorse.

As expected, beauty, fashion, lifestyle, food, latest tech, and entertainment are the industries that Dubai residents most likely look for on social media. Also, these industries prompt them to turn to social media influencers for recommendations.

With all the facts and figures presented, it’s easy for marketers to see where they can thrive using an effective marketing strategy to reach their target audience. That’s why it’s no big whoop for global brands to invest heavily in advertising campaigns through influencer partnerships.

Currently, there are thousands of influencers around the UAE that brands can choose from and connect with for collaborations and partnerships.
