Insights for the 3 main Arabic speaking regions
The Gulf or the GCC
Growth fueled literally by oil production has made this region one of the fastest growing regions around the world. The GCC demands high quality services and products as its member countries seek to gain the same standards of living common in Europe and America. The GDP of the entire GCC is just over a trillion dollars annually.
With a population predicted to hit 53 million by 2020, the GCC is becoming more a more lucrative economy to do business in year over year. Saudi Arabia sends nearly 140,000 students to Western countries every year to get educations and degrees abroad. These travelers return to their home land with new western tastes and appetites. Combined with a growing use of debit and credit cards the GCC is a ripe new market that many savvy companies are starting to make huge profits from.
The Gulf countries of the GCC are ripe for affiliate marketing in their native language, Arabic. With many younger Arabs using smart phones and growing up with computers in their homes many Arabs are not afraid to make online purchases and spend a great deal of time engaging in social media and online video games.
The Levant (Jordan, Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq)
The Levant is currently a region with a great deal of youth and relatively savvy Internet users. With a population of 75 million, it is a region that can’t be ignored despite past turmoil in the region. This region is full of young well educated professionals who are used to using the Internet and cell phones. Amman, Jordan for example has become a hub for startups in the region. New copy cat companies are springing up in this region to utilize successful business models in the wide open market of the Middle East.
Affiliate marketing in the Levant is a great market entry strategy for companies seeking to test whether their products or services are desirable in this region. With low risk and lower entry costs than other forms of marketing, Arabic affiliate marketing allows companies to test this market without taking on unnecessary risks.
North Africa’s population is about 195 million. Egypt which has the largest population of any Arab country at about 80,000,000 is part of North Africa. This region is very diverse and in many ways it is more geography than anything else that connects the region. Algeria, Morocco, and Tunisia speak dialects of Arabic that are intelligible to Arabs in the other parts of this region. With a relatively young population this region is very familiar with the Internet and social media. In fact much of the Arab Spring movements in Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya could not have been accomplish without high levels of Internet usage in the region.
Affiliate marketing in North Africa is one strategy for testing out this regions readiness for a given product or service. With a whole workforce of prepared Arabic speaking affiliate advertisers seeking to reach this region to capitalize on relatively low commission payouts it is ideal for your affiliate marketing campaign.
