The space of Iranian advertising has a very diverse infrastructure for using ads. And with such a rapidly increasing Internet penetration rate, digital marketing is the new standard. Tehran’s hundreds of billboards waiting to be leased for a product or service, a real-estate offer or a B2B company’s data, up to the vastness of digital space are all a potential asset to increase sales.

There is great potential for business development and entrepreneurship in Iran. The culture and its people grow up with essential skills in business: They get accustomed to very basic principles of negotiation and bargaining from a very young age.

This has become an essential part of Iran’s contemporary business culture, and way of life.
