NDN Group’s Shanghai team has helped renowned Dubai-based property developer Meraas to leverage digital marketing to tap into China’s market, luring Chinese homebuyers to purchase residential properties in Dubai.

We have worked with Meraas to manage WeChat account and created a HTML5 landing page with novelty. We have built a Mini-Program – in which potential Chinese investors and buyers scan a QR code, download Meraas’ properties brochures, floor plans and payment plans, thereby creating seamless customer experiences. Our team has leveraged more than 60 social media platforms to push for feeds and ads to target customers and boost lead generation over sales of Meraas’ properties.
