Verbatim from Egyptians’ reactions on Mohamed Salah’s video message
Chelsea Hired Egyptian Agency – It’s now official.
Well Done Chelsea!
Actually, we would like to thank Chelsea for the great step, this’s considered as one of the most quick professional actions, tells us how professional Chelsea’s online team is, and how wise their predictions to the future. Hiring Egyptian agency isn’t easy because the market in Egypt isn’t still mature to manage such big accounts, i believe that Chelsea went through a sophisticated market analysis to reach a professional agency here in Egypt. Now Chelsea has a huge opportunity to invade the Egyptian market and become the most loved big four team for Egyptians and oust Man UTD.
Why other big four teams have to follow Chelsea and hire Social Media agencies from Egypt?
- Egypt is the key to the Middle East and the Arab world
- Egypt has 18 million registered Facebook users, and about 12 million active users
- Egyptians are into the European tournaments especially the English premier league & La Liga
- Average 25% of the big four pages’ monthly growth is coming from Egypt
We encourage Arsenal, Man UTD and Liverpool to take the same step and start engaging in Arabic.
