How to Open a Content Creation Agency, Blog Management Agency or Become a Blogging Service Provider with Meydan Free Zone

Many businesses in Dubai, ranging from small startups to large corporations, recognize the importance of maintaining a strong online presence and engaging with their target audience through blogs and other content platforms. As such, there is a significant demand for professional blog management services that can help businesses create engaging, high-quality content, optimise it for search engines, and promote it across various digital channels.

Dubai provides an ideal location for your business venture. The city’s support for entrepreneurship and startups, along with its robust infrastructure, makes it conducive for starting and scaling a business, and the availability of talent and expertise in digital marketing, content creation, and related fields also provides access to a skilled workforce. When you open a Blog Management Agency with Meydan Free Zone, you get to enjoy favourable business incentives, such as 100% foreign ownership, tax benefits, and simplified legal procedures.

As a Blogging Service Provider, you will typically offer a range of services related to managing, creating, optimising, and promoting blog content. Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) often lack the resources or expertise to create and manage blog content effectively. Outsourcing these services to a specialised agency can help SMEs establish and maintain an online presence, engage with their target audience, and drive business results.

In addition, e-commerce businesses can leverage your services to drive traffic, engage with customers, and promote their products or services. Startups can also benefit from your services to create awareness, generate leads, and establish credibility in a competitive market. Professional bloggers or content creators who monetize their blogs may require assistance with blog management and content creation to enhance their blog’s visibility and monetization potential. Marketing agencies may also seek the expertise of your Blog Management Agency or Content Creation Agency to complement their digital marketing strategies and provide value-added services to their clients.

Third-Party Approvals

This business activity does not require third-party approval.


The UAE government has implemented the Economic Substance Test (EST) as a requirement for certain businesses to demonstrate that their operations are managed or directed from within the country. This involves meeting criteria such as maintaining an adequate number of full-time employees in the UAE, generating a significant portion of their income within the UAE, and having sufficient assets and operational expenses in the UAE. Businesses are required to report their compliance with the EST by submitting an Economic Substance Return (ESR) within one year of their fiscal year-end.

For instance, companies whose fiscal years began on or after January 1, 2019, and ended on or before December 31, 2019, are required to file the ESR. Even newly established companies may need to file an ESR in the following year if their business activities fall under the EST requirements.

Business activity 6312.98 is exempt from the ESR requirement.



In the UAE, Designated Non-Financial Businesses and Professions (DNFBPs) are obligated to adhere to anti-money laundering regulations and combat the financing of terrorism and illegal organisations. As per the Ministry of Economy’s guidelines, an awareness campaign was conducted on April 30th, 2021, and existing licensees were already registered for goAML, a designated platform for reporting suspicious transactions. Failure to comply with these requirements within the specified timeframe may result in fines imposed by the Ministry of Economy.

To avoid penalties, new licensees must ensure they meet the compliance requirements after obtaining their license. It is essential for DNFBPs in the UAE to stay updated with the regulations and take necessary steps to fulfil their obligations, such as registering with the designated reporting platform and implementing robust anti-money laundering measures to mitigate risks and ensure compliance with the law.

Note that business activity 6312.98 is not subject to AML regulations.
