MANAMA: The Arabian Business Community (ABC) Bahrain has recorded 1,637,678 referrals to businesses in Bahrain during 2020.

The portal, which has now established itself as the leading business reference resource for anyone looking for contact and business information about companies in the kingdom, provides a unique promotional service which helps companies promote themselves to potential buyers of their products and services.

“In today’s challenging market companies are looking to obtain that leading edge on their competitors and ABC Bahrain provides a competitive advantage which generates quantifiable business referrals to their corporate profiles on the portal,” said Al Hilal Group manager director Ronnie Middleton.

“For just BD8 per day, a company can join the community as a premium partner providing them with a range of benefits including ‘top of mind’ positioning in their field of business, enhanced profile pages which are effectively a ‘showroom’ for their products and services, free email campaigns, free classified advertising on the site and promotional exposure not just on ABC but across Al Hilal’s range of publications and social media sites, including the GDN and the group’s market leading trade media such as Gulf Construction, Gulf Industry, Travel & Tourism News and Oil & Gas News.

Al Hilal has recorded an increase in the number of Bahrain companies joining the community this year and ABC has now become the most highly ranked information resource in Bahrain.

“When searching for information about companies in Bahrain you will see that search engines like Google rank ABC highly and in many cases above an individual company’s social media platforms including LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram,” said Mr Middleton.

“This is the result of our very successful and ongoing SEO campaigns which will keep ABC ahead of any other corporate information resourcing websites.

“Today ABC represents the most cost-effective marketing tool any company can use and my message to Bahrain companies is that if you are in business in Bahrain, make sure you position yourself ahead of your competition by becoming a Premium Partner on ABC Bahrain!”

Al Hilal Group has rolled out ABC portals across all GCC countries and during 2020 generated a record 5,907,928 business referral across all 14 portals representing an increase of over nine per cent in visitors during what has been a very unsettled year.
