The Best Agencies in Cairo To Handle Your Social Media

best social media agencies in cairo

Egyptians are very familiar with social media. We use it to trigger revolutions, we use it to share the latest news with our friends, and in business, we use it for marketing. Agencies in Cairo quickly took advantage of the new opportunity and added social media marketing to their services. Some agencies went as far as making social their main focus. The idea is to outsource this seemingly daunting part of your marketing plan to a specialized firm. One that knows how to win online. We’re here to lift the curtain on the top 10 agencies in Cairo to handle your social media.

The agencies were selected based on their proven ability to identify effective social media strategies, develop comprehensive social media campaigns, and execute the campaign to achieve desired goals. Various factors are considered when evaluating these agencies, including client reviews, past experience, pricing, market presence, and focus on social media marketing.

Rekoya

Rekoya

A shining example of what a social media agency should be, and one that can rub shoulders with the world’s finest. Rekoya is the undisputed king of results. You get more bang for your buck here than with any other agency. Good prices, big ideas, and crazy viral campaigns. They’re the brains behind some of the most successful digital marketing activities in the MENA region. Even though they have huge clients such as RAYA, Spacetoon, Knauf, Ulker, DeFacto, and Toyota, these guys remain humble and refreshingly honest. They don’t play games or make false promises. They pick a good strategy, follow it through and stay on top of it until you feel that sweet cash return. Rekoya is made up of a talented team of strategists and creatives who know the Middle Eastern markets inside out. And to top it off, our research revealed that Rekoya’s campaigns have the highest rate of sharing, and lowest cost per engagement in the Middle East. Simply put, their strategies, value for money, client reviews, and highly personalized service makes Rekoya our favorite agency and pick of the bunch.

POD Egypt

POD, which stands for Point Of Differentiation, describe themselves as a PR agency – but in reality they do much more than PR. They offer social media management under their digital marketing services. While they don’t specialize in social media as other agencies do, they’re still pretty good at it. It’s the people they’ve got working there that gives them an edge. They’ve brought in all sorts of media professionals together in an attempt to offer a 360 marketing solution. Speaking purely about social media, their strategies and campaigns are decent, prices are slightly on the higher end of the spectrum, and client reviews are generally positive. It’s worth noting that they’ve been around since 2015, so they’re not very old but they’re off to a great start!

Fifth Dimension – 5d

5d annual outing in Katameya Heights

Located in Maadi and overlooking the Nile, 5d is as special as the river that flows beneath it. Their social media campaigns are creative, unique and perfect for the Egyptian market. They have plenty of big clients including Danone Group, Nestle, Heinz, Hero Group, Eva Pharma, and much more. Clients highlighted their effective strategies, fair pricing, strong communication skills, and an ability to seamlessly integrate apps and games with the rest of their marketing efforts. Speaking of gaming apps, 5d really shines in this department – possibly the best in the country. Our research also revealed that 5d is spearheading VR. They’ve already implemented VR projects in Egypt and abroad, while their expansion into the UAE and KSA doesn’t surprise us at all. In short, 5d is a sublime agency with one eye on social media, and another on future tech.

MO4 Network

MO4 Network
The mobile world of MO4

MO4 is the juggernaut of the list. They’ve got enough clients, employees, and connections in the creative industry to dwarf most agencies in Egypt, and probably the Middle East too. It’s an agency you shouldn’t overlook if you’re after a good social media service. The clients we spoke to gave mostly positive reviews pointing out MO4’s huge pool of resources, and an ability to deliver creative campaigns on time and on budget. But the biggest talking point is Cairo Scene. This online platform is the brainchild of the four Mowafi siblings (hence the name MO4), and it’s here where their clients believe the value lies. A feature on Cairo Scene doesn’t sound half bad considering the site’s traffic and how much good it does for your search engine visibility. But sadly, smaller clients feel prices are too high and their social media pages get rather quite after a few months. Still, we believe MO4 is a good agency to handle your social media, and you’re more likely to be satisfied if you’re one of their bigger clients.

Kijamii

Kijamii

Don’t be put off by their strange name, Kijamii are a bunch of social media pros. They’re made up of a young and motivated team with a hunger for success. They manage the local/regional pages for IKEA, Netflix, and Arsenal to name a few. An incredible feat for a home-grown agency, and an achievement they should be very proud of. However, looking through their clients’ social media pages, we noticed that their creativity takes a knock the bigger they get. Could it be an HR issue or is this particular agency overwhelmed? While Kijamii might be a victim of its own success, it doesn’t change the fact that they’re one of the top 10 social media agencies in Cairo and one we’d recommend.

Sarmady

Sarmady
Sushi Day at Sarmady

Sarmady was founded in 2001 by Con O’Donnell, an entrepreneur and investor who brought us the likes of filgoal.com and filbalad.com. In 2008, Sarmady was sold to Vodafone. Today, Sarmady is able to leverage Vodafone’s customer insight and huge reach for their clients. Their digital marketing capabilities are quite broad. So integrating various channels is where Sarmady really shines. They’re capable of launching a website and an app, while delivering an SMS and social media campaign side-by-side to an outstanding degree. But much like Kijamii and MO4, Sarmady seems to cater to large companies. That’s certainly not a bad thing, but it does deter smaller businesses looking for a more tailored, boutique experience which agencies like Rekoya can offer. But if you’re after a big budget, multi-channel marketing bonanza that appeals to the masses, then look no further.

Hug Digital

hug digital

While Hug Digital are better known for their activities in the UAE, their recent efforts in Egypt have been just enough to land them a spot on our list. Often times, their level of creativity comes close to that of Rekoya’s. But while they’ve shown flashes of creative brilliance, we feel that they’re unable to deliver those beautifully engaging posts on a consistent basis. Client reviews are a bit of a mixed bag with some clients identifying Hug Digital’s strong page moderation skills and others bemoaning their steep pricing. Overall, while Hug Digital brings a wealth of experience and professionalism on the back of their success in the UAE, they’ve still got some way to go in Egypt before they start climbing our list.

Bsocial

This is an awesome agency located in Sheraton, Heliopolis. They may be relatively unknown compared to the agencies above but Bsocial impressed us enough to warrant a place on our list. Their team is handpicked to give you a great social media marketing experience and their level of dedication is great. Their pricing is competitive and their campaign ideas generally receive positive feedback. Unfortunately, one of the few downsides is the quality of the designs that Bsocial produces. Sometimes, they can lack the minimal beauty other agencies can produce. Nevertheless, if your company targets lower socio-economic classes, and your budgets are relatively low then Bsocial may just be the agency for you.

Pimula

Pimula Agency

Pimula isn’t the oldest agency on our list but one of the most impressive. Their team consists of more than 20 professionals from the world of digital marketing, and together they produce gorgeous campaigns and websites for a very satisfied set of clients. In terms of social media, they’re not afraid to try some wacky, out-of-the-box campaigns, and that creativity leads to great results and top ROI. Back in 2015, Pimula was just a dream that started in Alexandria. Today, that dream has turned into an unstoppable agency with offices in Alexandria, Cairo and Jeddah on a path to success. A path that lead them to claim the tenth and final spot on our list. Onwards and upwards, Pimula!

  1. my opinion:
    1. digital republic in
    2. mo4 out (they dont pay their employee salaries)
    3. rekoya should be number 1 (what is leogami??)

  2. Congratulations to the agencies listed above. I agree with 80% of this list. Not so sure about mo4 and kijami as i have heard some negative feedback.

  3. I spent the earlier stage of my career in Cairo working many jobs in advertising back in the 80s and 90s before I moved to US, and most recently to Dubai as a partner in 2 firms. Now that I’m back in Egypt, I’ve been consulting on a semi-retired basis, and I have even consulted for the agencies on this list. For sure, there is no comparison between US/Dubai agencies with the ones in Cairo!! As we all expect, the agencies in Egypt are not creative, not passionate, and don’t offer true value like in other countries. This is for many reasons to blame the country. But I have consulted for 1 agency that reminded me of how US and Dubai agencies work. This agency is called Rekoya (number 1 on the list)). Because I consult, it means I know how they work internally. They really understand social media and have the best team I have seen to execute this new way of advertising. Maybe they are not the biggest company but they have the best ideas and very creative. Like many people pointed out, the owner is excellent for running a social media agency. Other agencies have owners that yell at their staff even sometimes at their clients!!!! But Rekoya’s team all respect each other and that creates an excellent working environment. I am not surprised at all with what this website wrote. I also give my vote to Rekoya. You get passion, creativity, and value with this agency.

    • Hi doaa, for small companies maybe in range 5,000-10,000 per month .. For medium companies 10,000-25,000 .. For big and multinational companies it is 25,000+ .. For me i own a restaurant in cairo i pay 8000 every month .. My brother he work in agency this is the aberage price .. I hope i helped u

  4. rekoya deserve every single good comment because I know exactly what all of this people are meaning when they say rekoya is the best. i work in a education sector (3 nurseries,1school) and rekoya does a really really wonderful job. they are so friendly and i love their work so much.

  5. Kijami is the worst!!! They are the new mo4 agency. They get too big and then have to many things to manage at once. We have now tried 4 agencies- digital republic, victory link, mo4, kijami. All start good and then same story– no communication or feedback, no creativity no development and it just become very normal. We decided to work with rekoya based on recommendations. I HOPE THIS IS DIFFERENT!!!!

      • Hi Ziad, my experience is great so far with Rekoya. We have not had to worry about marketing since they took over and there are great results in the business. If you work with them, I recommend you are patient for the first 3 months until they figure out the best strategy for you. It has been more than a year and we could not be happier. thanks

  6. the agencies i know… mo4. digital republic, rekoya, hug digital, digitree, mint and company, kjjamii, technowireless, bsocial, victory link. I think these r market leaders hear in egypt. my opinion:

    mo4… bad organization and communication. and the most thing i hear is delyaed or no salaries for workers. bt they r still getting bigger because of connections in the market is very strong. not recommend.

    digital republic… joined isobar network which is global ad network. quality and creativity is low these days. this agency once one the biggest. i think their problem is the way they treat their clients, very rude sometimes. the owner karim khalifa said they are not doing well financially recently. not recommend.

    rekoya… they take big accounts of ulker, loreal, mercedes. i hear a lot of positive feedback about this company and i have a friend at digital republic that tell me they r studying rekoyas work. comments here show positive for rekoya. companies in dubai trying to buy rekoya but owners say no not for sale i think this is good for clients. i recommend rekoya

    hug digital… they have bigg accounts and they r based in dubai/ they opened branch in egypt. so maybe not the best agency for local market i prefer agency that start in egypt because i think they r more familiar with the culture and way of marketing here and the law. i recommend if u r in dubai but they r expensive

    digitree… very bad agency.. i think there is no creativity here no passion. there is nothing special about this agency. they r only good with graphics but that is full stop after this. a bit lower class and more commercial than the rest. not recommend.

    mint and company… this is a small agency then the rest and they r most girls here. maybe too many girls not balanced for me. they take restaurants and give high quality photography. but there is alot of bad reputation for the owner and the way she treats clients.. i read a very bad review on facebook. owner is called sara. not recommend.

    kijamii… big agency with big accounts… what i hear about them is they are very very busy. so maybe they r good for old clients but not for new clients. i met the owner once he is a young man called bassem el hady. nice boy and obviously hard working but when compared to the other owners he is average.

    bscoail and victory link… these r like each other and i dont recomment. the problem i see is the agenices when they grow they dont hire quality workers to match client expectations and the work becames average.

    i think this is why companies like rekoya that get bigger and maintain quality service r winning the trust of clients and taking from these other agencies. other very important thing is the way they treat clients and respect them.

    like everyone is saying i also think rekoya r the best. the other agencies i mentioned r average and they have – and + but rekoya is all +++++

    sorry for the bad english
    please ask me any details i know this market i will try to help u.. thank u

    • i think everyone will appreciate your detailed analysis but respectfully i have to ask how you know all of this information?

      • @ibrahim, i know this because i am marketing head at a big company with 5 sub companies and each one is with a different agency. from the duties of my job i have to understand digital marketing and research who is the best for this, and also i work with 5 agencies same time and change when they r not good so from different experience also i know. If u want plz call me i can give more details on mobile.

    • Hello, Thank you for the analysis it is really comprehensive. Have you dealt with a company called Admepro? if yes i would appreciate your feedback. Thank you!

  7. I can’t believe mo4 is on this list. They don’t deserve it. I regret it everyday when i think about how they send some kids to do the social media for my business without understanding the business and without even asking. Really how do they expect to offer a good service when they dont care about your market? They really should be removed from this list in my opinion.

  8. I think this list is missing some big names but I don’t mean that the respectful agencies mentioned are not goodh. I suggest to the editor a second part of this article mentioning 10 more agencies same as u did with the residential compounds

  9. I am shocked that MO4 is on this list. Really this website should have asked around more to find out the reality of this shameful company. When I worked with them they were so rude when I wanted to stop the service before the contract end date. Reasons are for ending because my business did not get any return. I agree with the comment above about sending some kids to take some photos. What about the feedback?? What about strategy?? What about consulting and trying different things to post??? I asked them for my money back because I got no return. They said no to me. Then what am I supposed to do? They took money and promised they will do 1 and 2 and 3 and my business will get lots of customers and things like that. But I got nothing. Thanks for nothing MO4. Change your name to MO-BULLSHIT…

  10. Honestly I can’t judge from the side of a client but my friends in the industry work in these agencies and their reviews tell me that 5d and technowireless are very good. They tell me Rekoya is a small company but they are very high quality and their reputation is very good. They tell me kijami is the famous and they have a lot of people but the employees are not happy because their work is not recognized. I want to work in any agency please if somebody can help me.

  11. Can anybody explain to me what is a social influencer and how do I find them in Egypt? Is this a service offered by digital agencies?

  12. It is so embarrassing to choose an agency to work on a international brand and they end up doing a great job for only one month and then everything goes wrong. stopping new ideas and exciting posts and answering customers in the wrong way. I have to be the one that faces the humiliation infront of my boss and marketing director. This has bin my experience with: 1)victory link 2) technowireless 3) 5D
    3 agencies in 3 years: 2013 – 2015
    THANK GOD a friend recommended rekoya. for the last 2 years they have proved to be consistent. the only one i work with that gets better not worse over time. i remember from the pitch they said that their work is gradually gets better because it’s based on constant research and testing strategies which is so true. and this whole message is to say thanks to rekoya. i almost got fired in 2015 and now i am a brand manager. this agency will not let you down.

  13. I have to agree with the comments above about Rekoya. We are very satisfied with them. They seem genuinely passionate about social media. Personally I find the creativity of their posts to be much higher than other agencies.

  14. My comments coudl upset some people… Because you’re about to read the cold hard truth about a few of the companies mentioned…

    In my opinion, the owner of a company is everything. To know the owner on a professional /personal level is all the info you need to decide on how good (or bad) their company is.

    I know the owners of: Kijamii, 5d, mo4. For the rest mentioned, I don’t know their owners and I have not dealt with them before so I can not comment.

    Before reading… this is NOT A PERSONAL ATTACK on any of the owners.

    Each company owner I know is SO different. Let’s start with kijamii owner Bassem. He’s a friendly and respetful man who is 1of the first to realize the commercial power of social media. He is so successful because of capitalizing an opportunity and great timing. But as much as I respect him i must say, please forgive me, he is too laid back now and lost the appetite to provide value for money. Again I say this will all respect, but when comparing his leadership skills, hunger and intellignce with other owners it is worse.

    Next is 5d owner Amr. What a cool guy. he is very good at what he does and from what i have seen his clients and staff enjoy working with him. but in my opinion he is focusing on many new technologies like VR which is not a bad thing at all but stops his agency from becoming the best in one service. maybe he feels like the social media market is too crowded so he is trying to be no.1 in another service which is great i think socal media is still the biggest demand..hhmmm…. i dont know.

    Next is mo4 owner Amy. i think she is the most polarizing. everyone i know who knows her either loves her or hates her. she is complicated and maybe the craziest of the 3 owners i know. crazy is not always bad and i think it is a big part of her success. i have known mo4 siince they made a profile as a person on facebook called cairo scene which is how they started.. this was soooo long ago so they have an advantage from many years. cairo scene is their platform to promote their clients. now i know that her comapny doesnt pay salaries which is because of bad management .. so i blame the owner for that. workers deserve to be paid. and i criticize her laissez faire attitude to let her workers drink alcohol and smoke weed during work…. i find that very distrubing.

    So overall they all have unique characteristics. please meet them and make your own assessment ….. i would like to hear your opinions too.. from the comments i read on top i think rekoya is very interesting… if any one knows the owner can you put me in touch ? i want to really meet him/her

    • THAT SOUNDS LIKE A PERSONAL ATTACK! But I must agree with you about MO4. Amy mowafi is a stuck up B*TCH who should rot in hell. I hope you are reading this AMY. Pay your staff!!! Maybe they will stop hating you!!!! Too late for me, you never paid my last 2 salaries AND fired me without notice. I hope your ashamed of yourself!!!!!!!
