Company Snapshot

With over 30 million people now using social media in the Middle East, including 15 million Facebook users, the region is ripe for digital marketing. Founded in 2007, Eastline Marketing (ELM) was the first digital marketing agency in Lebanon and one of the first in the region to offer a complete range of online marketing services. Just a few years later, ELM is developing campaigns for Kimberly-Clark, Toyota, DHL, FXCM, and top local bank Audi. They are racking up international recognition at big industry events like Cannes, the Webby Awards, and the Gemini Awards to name a few. It is experiencing high revenue growth and has forged inroads into regional markets, namely Qatar and Saudi Arabia. With plans to keep shifting towards a higher margin, more scalable products using its proprietary technology platform, Sweepz, and to open new offices, ELM is well on its way to becoming the leading regional digital marketing agency in a market estimated to reach US$266 million by 2013, from US$56 million in 2009.
