How does Marketing In Asia work? 

There aren’t many content platforms out there that prioritise Asian content creators when it comes to content distribution.

The only consideration for publishing is the quality of content, the relevance to each edition; be it Marketing In Asia, Business In Asia, People In Asia, Startup In Asia* and Happening In Asia*. We rate our content creators based on the content quality, relevance and readership and give preference to all those content creators who are on top of our ranking list.

  7. You have a higher chance of getting published if you share content such as videos, infographics and podcasts.
  8. Images and pictures used in Marketing In Asia must be legal.
