With the population of the United Arab Emirates being 9.83 million, there are 9.73 million active internet users who are also on social media. The rate of internet penetration in the United Arab Emirates is the highest in the world at 99%. The average user spends 7 hours and 3 minutes accessing the internet, with about 2 hours and 57 minutes being spent on social media. The United Arab Emirates accounts for 46% of the $23.43 billion spending on digital advertising in the entire Middle East-North Africa region.
There are 8.1 million Facebook users in the United Arab Emirates. Around 3.8 million
residents use Instagram, and 3.3 million are on Twitter every day. It may be interesting to note that 78% of social media users in the Middle East use these platforms to find
inspiration for their purchases. So you can see why social media advertising makes up 45% of the total ad spend on digital media. Under these circumstances, digital business setup in Dubai makes a lot of sense to the aspiring entrepreneur.
How to Start a Digital Marketing Agency in Dubai
Of all the seven emirates in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai is the most preferred as it is also home to several businesses. This means that it will be easier to meet clients. You can choose to open your digital marketing agency on the mainland or in a free zone.
The first step involves zeroing in on a suitable name for your digital marketing agency in Dubai. There are rules pertaining to company nomenclature in the United Arab Emirates. For instance, you cannot have any religious terms in the trade name of your company. First names are allowed only if it is the first name of one of the shareholders. The names of countries and cities are not permitted, but nationalities and the names of geographical regions around the world are allowed.
List of Documents Required for Starting a Digital Marketing Agency in Dubai
This is only an indicative list and not exhaustive in nature. Additional documentation may sometimes be required, such as proof of residency in your country of residence. This could be something as simple as a utilities bill or a bank statement.
A business setup consultant can help you lodge the application for company registration and a business license. If all the paperwork is in order, company registration and a business license are granted in a matter of days. You can then proceed to open a corporate bank account for your digital marketing agency in Dubai, so that you can make and receive
payments with ease. Owing to strict anti-money laundering regulations in the United Arab
Emirates, it is not easy to open a bank account, but we make it possible.
