Dubai-based Nexa digital marketing (Nexa) wins at the inaugural MENA Search Awards. These awards recognise the expertise, talent and achievements of the professionals within the search industry (SEO, PPC and content marketing) in the Middle East & North Africa.

Nexa won the Category for ‘Best integrated campaign’ amongst strong competition from other agents in the region. This award category recognised a campaign that had achieved outstanding results through an integrated campaign using a variety of both online and offline activity. Nexa won the award for its work with a brand new university launching in the UAE. The challenge was to create awareness, trust and credibility in a higher education brand that has no previous history using a fully integrated digital marketing campaign. The campaign focus was centred around content and inbound marketing with social media, search (organic and paid) and marketing automation (email, workflows and lead scoring – all powered by HubSpot) being integral in targeted content distribution. Education is a highly competitive sector in the GCC Region and the launch of a brand new university with no local or international history or credibility is highly challenging. Within just 3 months of launching the integrated digital campaign, the university was well on its way to achieving its aggressive targets in terms of student numbers and revenue. In addition, there is already a healthy pipeline of students ready to enroll for future courses and programmes.

On winning the award, Amit Vyas, CEO of Nexa, said, “We’re thrilled to have won this award, which was only possible because of the hard work of our team, the integration of different internal divisions and a supportive client happy to listen to our suggestions and allow us to implement these as part of the campaign.”
