What We Do
B2B specialists with over a decade of experience across different industry verticals, we custom-create effective communications strategies for both high profile corporate clients and new-to-market businesses. SMC works with specialist English and Arabic
writers with PR and journalistic backgrounds and leverages the strengths of our in-house professional resources to deliver results across traditional print media and broadcast channels as well as the fast-paced digital and social media arena.
A proven track record of success, keen insight into client motivations and an in-depth understanding of the regional markets in which we operate, is the basis for SMC’s expertise in the B2C arena.
From new restaurant brands to healthcare services, we bring senior level strategic advisory capabilities and dynamic campaign strategies to the table; and are experienced in providing solutions throughout the entire communications spectrum, providing our clients with the quality assurance and the results they demand.
We’ll ask plenty of questions to ensure we understand your business and objectives, and then research, devise and implement effective campaigns – on time and to budget – delivering results which exceed expectations.
Our experienced team provides strategic advice for success around business critical issues, plans and projects, as well to public affairs campaigns and engagement with stakeholders and communities in addition to providing support for major bids.
Turnkey corporate event management is another aspect of the communications mix where Shamal PR can add value to your business through effective message dissemination.
We manage all aspects of an event, from A to Z, whether it’s participation at a major conference or industry seminar, through to product launches, exhibitions, press conferences or full onsite press office organisation. The SMC team can also take care of venue booking, set-up and on-site branding.
Social Media is regarded today as an impactful and efficient tool in shaping perceptions, promoting businesses and driving revenue. Powerful and often unpredictable, digital media works best when looked at holistically, integrated in the wider marketing strategy.
At Shamal Marketing Communications, we approach digital media from a strategic perspective. We look in detail at our clients’ business model, and, with an analytical outlook of all MARCOM components, we design social media strategies aimed at supporting the wider goals of the businesses we serve while complementing the marketing mix, helping to drive revenue.
