Why is database marketing so difficult in Lebanon?

The question is why is database marketing so hard for companies in Lebanon? I had a rant recently on social media, on my personal account, on how most companies in Lebanon fail to take advantage of Email Marketing. My posts focused on how most companies fail to even send out an email to highlight their upcoming events/promotions, a problem that Samsungctc doesn’t seem to face. That is great, right? Well, not entirely… I have received a few emails since the release of the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, marketing the new flagship and its features. The failure in their email marketing campaign happened last week when I received an email marketing the new Galaxy S8 accessories. Shouldn’t you go ahead and get me to buy the smartphone first before you try to sell me it’s accessories? Come on… your customer database is there for a reason. Identifying your customers, the products they have purchased, and possible upcoming interests, are key for a successful email marketing campaign.

Of course, the below solutions are NOT restricted to the two brands mentioned earlier.

Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus vs. S7 and S7 Edge – is it worth the upgrade?

Looking back at 2016, the S7 Edge was hands down one of the best smartphones, with one of the best designs, which it still is to this date. Things have greatly changed with the launch of the S8 and S8 Plus now. With the introduction of the two new devices, Samsung officially came back swinging after their Note 7 demise, with what might be the best design for 2017. So is this new phone good enough to have users upgrade from 2016’s S7 or S7Edge? Here, I will list some features that give the “edge” to the new devices, as well as other features and specifications that might keep away from ever considering upgrading to the new flagship.

S8 Pre-Order Deals In Lebanon – a letdown?

The Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus pre-order deals in Lebanon have started and unfortunately, it is a letdown. Comparing this to the pre-order deals that started in the US right after the “Unbox your phone” event in New York, it does seem like a real letdown. The pre-order deal in Lebanon includes a 1-year subscription to beIN sports, 3 months subscription to Shahid Plus, and a 10 GB data bundle for 2 months (Touch and Alpha). The pre-order deal would cost you $799 for the S8 and $899 for the S8 Plus. It is worth mentioning that this pre-order deal is also offered by Samsung Levant.
