Arabic Content Marketing Services


Looking for great Arabic content that will get you noticed and get you Arabic links back to your site?  Are you searching for a way to get that content out in front of a variety of different audiences to drive brand awareness and traffic back to your site?  IstiZada knows how to do Arabic content marketing well.


What is content marketing

Content marketing is the process of creating amazing content and then syndicating it through all the right channels to get exposure for the content and your company.  Like anywhere else in the world Arabic speakers love good content so it’s essential to have not only a strong Arabic content marketing strategy but to also be creating good content on a regular basis.

Producing Arabic content is also important because it’ll put you at the forefront of the trend. Despite being the 5th most spoken language in the world, the importance of Arabic content is only recently being recognized. As countries in the MENA region continue to explode in terms of technological and business progression, producing Arabic content is a way to get an edge over your competitors who may only be marketing to the region in English.

Is marketing in Arabic worth it?

You might be wondering if putting the time and money into producing high-quality Arabic marketing content is really worth it. The quick answer is that it is: e-commerce is also doing extraordinarily well in the Middle East, and major companies like Amazon have realized the potential of this market with their recent launches in Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and Egypt.

Kinds of Content Marketing


Blog Posts

Well-written blog posts can get picked up and shared all over the web.  Well-written Arabic blog posts are anywhere from 300 to 1000 words or more in length.  These posts tend to be on intriguing subjects that are often funny, inspiring, controversial, or just cute. Blog posts must have good visibility on the web and be sharable to reach as many Middle Easterners as possible.

Good Arabic articles aren’t all that different from blog posts.  In general, an article can be much longer than a blog post and typically doesn’t reside on a blog.  Articles are usually syndicated through various online networks but which networks they get picked up on is an extremely important factor as to whether it will drive traffic to your site or have a positive SEO impact for your online rankings.

Images are self-explanatory but not everyone understands the power of an image online.  We all have seen images of cute cats that get shared like crazy all around the web.  Images must be something interesting, inspirational, hilarious, or even just downright adorable to get shared in a way that is going to drive traffic and links to your site.


Infographics are visual representations of information or statistical data. Typically an infographic condenses a variety of complicated statistics on the same topic into a visual format so it can be more easily understood. Good Arabic infographics are hard to come by, and the fact that Arabic is a right-to-left language certainly poses some challenges for creating infographics, as you can’t really just change the language of the text if you are basing it off of an English model, you have to reformat the template to make sure the text formatting is correct and easy to read.

With the second largest search engine on the planet being YouTube no one should underestimate the power of video in our world today. Even more so, the Middle East is hands-down the region that consumes the most video content when it comes to YouTube: the top 5 countries in the world for YouTube reach are Lebanon, Bahrain, Oman, Qatar, and the UAE. Well-done short video clips on topics that interest Arabic Internet users are powerful pieces of content that can bring you links, traffic, and online recognition.

Social Media Posts
Ask any young person where they consume the most content on the internet, and they’ll most likely give you the same answer-social media. As we discussed above, the Middle East is no exception and in fact, an extreme example of this. Social media content is an essential form of content marketing especially for a Middle Eastern audience. Instagram posts can create direct leads from visitors to your page. And by appealing to a young Arabic audience, you’ll make your brand much more relatable to more consumers in the MENA region than solely English content creators.

Understand the market

In this phase we spend time analyzing your target market. We dig into elements such as what are your target market’s demographics, needs, wants and desires.


Understand where your audience spends their time online

Once we have a good grasp of who your target market is we do an in-depth analysis of where your target audience spends their time online.
