Marketing Localization: What Can The Egyptian North Pole Teach Us?

July is the hottest month in Cairo with an average temperature of 28°C (82°F) and the coldest is January at 14°C (56°F) with the most daily sunshine hours at 14 in June. Can you imagine how the The Egyptian North Pole would look like?

Marketing Localization… Unfortunately, not all companies consider this step when expanding into new markets. All marketing localization projects should include a final proof step to make sure locals actually respond well to the localized materials.

Kairo agency has implemented a digitally native campaign that works on different platforms and still applicable on other advertisement mediums…

Describing Egyptians’ long experience with snow in a humorous way, then presenting the question “Imagine if a place in Egypt that contained 7000 ton of snow?” if we can have so much fun with freezer or broken air conditioner ice formation, how much more fun are we going to have when we experience Ski Egypt?

Tons and tons of fun, right?

And we did on a smaller scale though, when they filled Hijaz square “Midan Al Higaz, in Masr el Gedida” with 150 kilos of snow and surprised the pedestrians and morning train riders with a snowy Egypt and it was shot in the summer to double the effect of surprise and delight.
