We offer the following ad formats:
NOTE: For a limited time, advertising on 8Asians (in Zone A, Zone 1 and Zone 3) will also reach GASP! – a shopping blog dedicated to gadgets, gizmos and tchotchkes that highlight the Asian Pacific Islander community.
Advertorials are more like a blog-focused review than an advertisement. Advertorials are clearly marked as sponsored content, but they act like blog posts and as such stay on the site forever, in addition to being broadcast via Twitter and Facebook.
Please note that the 8Asians.com Editorial Staff will be extremely selective about what is featured and will act as an editorial filter as a benefit for both readers and advertisers. Readers will find vendors, products, and services aligned with their values. Advertisers, meanwhile, will receive the added credibility of editorial recommendation and won’t waste their money on a campaign that isn’t going resonate with the readership. Advertorials will also be considered for inclusion for GASP!, if submitted for inclusion on 8Asians.com.
Advertorial decisions will be made on the following criteria: Specific relevance to the Asian American/Asian Canadian community, website design, price point of product, past performance of similar products, and whether there is a full post’s worth of editorial story in the product.
