Admart.Asia launches website providing free classified advertising for Asia

Admart.Asia has officially launched its website Admart.Asia that seeks to provide the Asian community with an independent forum to place advertisements, including items for sale, community notices, public events, employment opportunities, public services, real estate and accommodation, night life, dining, and entertainment services. Admart.Asia is a registered domain name and trademark of Admart.Asia Ltd.

The Admart.Asia website currently serves Australia, Bangladesh, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Macau, Malaysia, Pakistan, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.

The Admart.Asia website had been operating on a test-mode basis over the last month, and during that time had attracted hundreds of users, most whom had learned about the website from a small number of test-users. The website was conceived by a small group of Hong Kong-based students, who have now attracted funding for their venture. The business is now supported by employees working in countries across Asia.

Wayan Chan, a founding partner of Amart.Asia Ltd, said, “It is a great feeling to finally go live. We’ve had an extremely positive response so far, with hundreds of users signing up, and we expect this to continue as more people across Asia become familiar with our site. We launched the Admart.Asia website to provide all of Asia with a single, easy to use location on the internet to advertise anything. Our slogan is ‘Advertise Anything, Anywhere in Asia’. Basically, our website it like a public notice board, where anyone can advertise anything they want to for free. We have a very relaxed policy about what can be posted, and we will only really delete content that is clearly inappropriate or offensive.”

Chan added, “We created nine key free advertising categories - For Sale, Community, Personals, Jobs, Property, Vehicles, Services, Nightlife and Questions. So far, the most popular categories have been the For Sale and Personals. But we expect that the Jobs, Property, and Vehicles categories will also become popular in the future.”
