Chanel uses a number of strategies to strengthen expansion into Saudi Arabia :
Distinctive ad campaigns. Ravish adverts are broadcasted starring famous celebrities, such as movie stars or models, where they spread messages to customers and promote products through TV.
Brand work to build profitable relations with wealthy customers by providing a one to one service, which matches their luxury high end image. This is where customers are taken to private areas of stores and are assisted with both their shopping and personal needs.
Chanel provides affluent customers with unrivaled customer service, including quick delivery, long or short distance, whatever the time.
Chanel are couscous with their advertising and do not include any sexually inappropriate material or disrespectful language in their adverts. This is forbidden in an Islamic state such as Saudi Arabia, where women are still not allowed to drive a car, or show skin or hair in public.

Parties, such as the Chanel Dinner are held to endorse the 'Chanel Club' image by inviting influential celebrities, such as movie stars and prestigious models to enhance the luxury lifestyle effect Chanel can provide for its customers.

Increasing purchasing power – increased in income for the customers leads to more desiring luxury goods
Brand value – especially in Asia customer believes that brand like Chanel increases the value of the one who uses it.
Key changes implemented for better performance
Chanel moving to Saudi Arabia was a challenging experience and an opportunity for the expansion of company within a new market. In order to improve their performances within this new market, Chanel had to be willing to first understand the market and connect with the locals/ consumers.
Chanel had to approach the Saudi’s population with different techniques which required adaptation of the brand to meet the local’s expectations and also demonstrates how the brand is very flexible to adapting to different states to reach out to their clients needs.
The key changes to implement better performances in Saudi are to adapt with the Kingdom culture (language), religion and tastes.
Beyond adapting to the Saudi’s culture (language), religion and taste, the level of customer service within the Chanel stores is also required to be impeccable to meet the client’s expectation and represent the brand.
The vendors are required to be warm and be able to fully support the clients, furthermore the service is required to go above helping them with their shopping experience.
In order to also improve their performances the staff are required to speak more languages than just Arabic to enable the company to reach out to their international clients in visit.
