Marketing & PR

For those in the industry, understanding the brand and its equity is the key to going forward. Brand positioning, defining the target and determining the best suited communication channels are the crucial starting points. This allows the agency to develop a holistic communication plan and triangulate on ideas, solutions, and strategies. Necessary PR messaging and activations are based on lead nurturing and the brand’s core needs and aims.

OOH Media & Media Buying

Multiply Marketing Consultancy’s outdoor media assets extend across Abu Dhabi, allowing the company to provide clients with exclusive targeting opportunities. The media department boasts a fine track record in media planning and buying for private and government clients.

Branding & Design

To initiate an authentic connection between brands and consumers, Multiply Marketing Consultancy adopts a brand story-telling strategy. Its experienced design team has been bringing brands to life for almost two decades, using trend-setting designs to engage with target audiences across a variety of media and channels.

Marketing Research

The agency’s objective is to connect brands with consumers. To understand consumer needs and emotions, the consultancy’s research department uses everything from microdata and market insights to statistical techniques, churn rates, and the latest practices and methods of neuromarketing. The company then develops the optimal strategy to grab consumers’ attention, in addition to implementing the ideal methods to entice them into engaging with the brand.

Social Media

Multiply Marketing Consultancy’s social media team ensures clients aren’t just present in the virtual realm, they are prominent. Audiences are targeted across the most crucial touch points with content that drives engagement while meeting clients’ business goals. The team handles social media strategy, social listening, social media management, content curation and more.

Multiply Marketing Consultancy’s expertise in event management goes back to the days of the first cityscape in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, adding numerous events and exhibitions to the company name over the years. The agency supports clients with continuously innovative and creative solutions and services such as MR and Experiential Marketing, ensuring events don’t just go the extra mile, but beyond all expectations.

Neuromarketing

Multiply Marketing Consultancy incorporates neuromarketing techniques to study consumers’ unconscious sensorimotor, cognitive and emotional responses to various stimuli. Everything from EEG and eye-tracking to emotion-analysing tools and software is used to test packaging, content, design, videos, websites and all other advertisements. In effect, this is marketing to the brain itself to instigate the utmost impact.

With a team of neuromarketers, behavioral analysts and other multidisciplinary researchers on board, Multiply Marketing Consultancy stays up-to-speed on consumer psychological and behavioral research, guaranteeing data and science help guide strategy.

Standout & Award-Winning Work

Over the years, Multiply Marketing Consultancy has garnered attention and accolades from peers in the industry and beyond. The recognition received is always used as the next starting point, which in itself ensures the company is continuously pushing the envelope and the boundaries of innovation and creativity.

Some of the consultancy’s standout work includes rebranding and creative execution for ADIO, and the rebranding of Al Ain Zoo, a 50-year-old institution, to name just a couple.

The Disgraceful Art Show, an award-winning initiative #FoodNotTrash was inspired by The Year of Giving, which was declared by His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, president of the United Arab Emirates. The initiative’s aim was to raise awareness about food waste, and to educate the public on its implications, encouraging them to take action and make a difference.

The Way Forward

Multiply Marketing Consultancy’s two decades of experience and knowledge servicing local clients, combined with its access to the latest design trends, martech and international standards, has been a key driver in successfully delivering client communication objectives. The company’s partnerships and acquisitions include New York-based Yieldmo, one of the fastest growing digital marketing companies in North America. The company is always primed and ready to meet any challenge, and solve any communication need.

Founder, MD, Champion of Corporate Culture: Samia is the Leader for All Reasons

As founder and managing director of Multiply Marketing Consultancy, Samia Bouazza brings a track record of delivering intelligent marketing, brand-positioning solutions, and strategies to her clients.

Under her leadership, Multiply Marketing Consultancy has grown from a local boutique agency into an award-winning global communication and research firm specialising in strategic marketing, branding, creative campaigns, social and digital media, and market research.
A business leader and active board member, Bouazza has been focused on accelerating the digitalisation of companies and processes to ensure they are optimised, scalable, efficient and lean. This is most evident in her ambition for Multiply Marketing Consultancy.

She and her team have decided on a mandate to invest in disruptive marketing technologies that complement the firm’s existing services and ensure a constant edge in the market. Bouazza recently announced Multiply Marketing Consultancy’s latest investment in Yieldmo, one of the fastest-growing martech (marketing technology) companies in North America. This adds to the company’s global network of investments and partnerships, and its recent expansion into new digital industries in the US and UK. Samia Bouazza’s plans for her consultancy’s growth have also been organic, with the company retaining some of the region’s largest names in real estate and consumer goods.
