With evolving shifts in consumer behavior and digital usage, it’s more important than ever for brands and marketers to have a digital presence. Here’s what you need to know to reach consumers this Ramadan:
Leverage the power of video
Video is a great tool that allows consumers to explore brands further to inspire their next purchase. The sight, sound, and motion of video keep your brand top-of-mind that creates an emotional connection with shoppers.
Deliver an omnichannel experience
Reach your audience whether they’re across mobile, desktop, or Connected TV and tell a consistent brand story across all screens while delivering a custom experience on each device.
Timing is everything
In 2021, spending on gifts and groceries during Ramadan reached $38.5 trillion, exceeding the $35.6 trillion spent during non-festive periods.⁴ Match your digital investment to your audience’s digital behaviour as they engage with brands online and actively seek to purchase during Ramadan.
Interactive ad features are key
67% of Middle East consumers are shifting to digital channels to engage with brands.⁶ Make it easier for consumers to immerse in the brand experience by leveraging interactive ad formats and features that transform your video ad into a digital shopfront with browsable product feeds or consumers reviews that encourage exploration and conversions.
