Dubai, UAE (PRWEB) April 08, 2015
Chain Reaction, the Middle East’s leading digital performance marketing agency, now offers clients unparalleled access to the Chinese market through a partnership with Baidu – China’s leading search engine. Chain Reaction, an SEO company, was appointed as the first and only MENA-region Baidu partner. This was in order to offer Middle Eastern businesses access to a suite of online products. This will increase their visibility and sales in the Chinese market.
China’s economy is the largest and one of the fastest-growing in the world. It also presents unique growth opportunities to Middle Eastern businesses. The tourism sector in the GCC is flourishing. More Chinese tourists travel abroad to the Middle East each year. Dubai in particular has skyrocketed in popularity among Chinese tourists – who ranked it the third-most desirable travel destination after Australia and France. According to a recent report by Oxford Economics, Chinese visitors to the UAE alone are expected to increase by 98% by 2023; when they are projected to spend $781 million annually.
One-third of the $155 billion tourists will spend in 2015 will go towards high-priced items like luxury fashion and jewelry – which represent 50% of the GCC’s retail market. 57.8% of total spending by Chinese tourists abroad is allocated only for shopping. The rest represents accommodations, food, and entertainment. MENA businesses can harness the unparalleled purchasing power of Chinese travelers; this can be done with search engine marketing. As well as search engine optimization through Baidu – which receives 22 million travel queries every day.
The importance of the Chinese market to the GCC market is difficult to overstate. Trade and investment between the bloc and China is growing exponentially. Industries like real estate development, hospitality, luxury brands, and tourism are presented with an opportunity to experience record growth.
