What is Marketing In Asia?
Marketing In Asia is a content-sharing platform that makes it easy to enjoy articles, infographics, podcasts, slides and videos online. In simpler words, if YouTube is a service of displaying videos made by the creators who own the copyrights then Marketing In Asia is a service of displaying content made by the creators who own them. We do not own the copyrights and never claim those are ours. So start uploading your content today and get Asia to notice you.
Marketing In Asia vs other platforms, what is the difference?
There aren’t many content-sharing platforms out there that prioritise Asian content creators when it comes to content distribution. There are some, but all of them are Western countries based, promoting western values. Most traffic comes from there too, making them somewhat irrelevant to you if you wish to monetise it. The only option Asian content creators have is social media and occasionally doing a guest blogging gig. Yet they didn’t realise that social media is a pay-to-play platform and they provide nothing but a synthetic fame.
Here at Marketing In Asia, we’ve built is a platform around purpose. Your purpose. Asia-based content creators are free to upload their thoughts, ideas, reports, stories, anything. And almost all of them are tailored towards the Asian culture. There are a huge number of stories everyone can learn from, right here. You may bring home those, learn from them, then go out there to make a positive impact. We partner coaches, marketers, freelancers, lawyers, universities and many others to united all our content on purpose to change the world for the better. For you.
Why does Marketing In Asia exist?
To give Asian people and brands a voice.
Why is Marketing In Asia confident that you can bring traffic to my website or social media via submitted articles?
When you upload your article on this platform, one important thing you must do is to share your content with your friends once they are displayed. Be it online or instant messaging such as WhatsApp, Telegram, Viber, Line, WeChat et al. Why? Because we want them to read your thoughts here in Marketing In Asia. They might love it and click Like on the posting. Once this is done, the reach of your article will go further. If their friends were to do the same, the reach of your posting will be stretched – big time. The readership will go up further, organically. This is how we pool people together.
We want to secure as many active readers and content creators as possible to upload their content regularly. Imagine each of us has a minimum of 3,000 friends followers on Facebook for example and some of them click Like. Imagine the impressions and reaches the posting is going to make. Imagine it happens on LinkedIn and Twitter too. Do the math. Now that’s a powerful leverage right there.
