Due to the repercussions of the Covid-19 pandemic on the corporate sector, they were facing the prospect of a downturn and needed high-quality leads to sustain the business.

  • To generate 300 - 350 marketing-qualified leads for the campaign duration every month.

  • To keep the lead cost under $13.

  • To maintain brand awareness throughout the campaign period.

  • To manage the social media channels and scale up brand awareness.

After conducting an in-depth review, we studied the brand's unique selling propositions (USPS), customers' pain points and objections along with the competition and their digital strategies. We segmented the target audience to include freelancers who were looking for UAE residence visa and license. 

Here are some measures that we adopted:


  • To avoid thinning the budget since the locations outside UAE were vast, we clubbed all of them in one campaign and targeted exact match high-intent keywords with the main keyword as UAE/Dubai.

  • Keeping in mind that the licenses were expensive, we needed to reach high-intent prospects who are willing to spend for their business.

  • Focused efforts on Google Ads Search Campaigns since business setup is a highly researched sector.

  • Planned to develop a feasible budget schedule and a matching campaign layout based on research and analysis of keyword trends.
