Pakistani Influencer Platform to Enter Middle East, North Africa
(Bloomberg) -- Pakistan’s Walee Technologies Pvt., which connects social media influencers with companies, has acquired U.A.E-based Mirrorr.com, paving the way for entering the Middle East and North Africa regions.
The acquisition comes as companies and brands are shifting advertising spending online, including to influencers on social media platforms such as TikTok and Instagram. Brands are changing their strategies to cater to young consumers who make decisions based on trusted social profiles rather than company communication, said Najib Sabbagh, head of MENA region at Walee.
This acquisition gives the company an AI-driven analytics solution that detects and identifies brands and logos in content posted on social media channels, it said in a statement.
