Why you should advertise with us?

Reaching the Northwest’s Asian communities may be easier than you think.

Asian Pacific American communities have been called, “The market of the 21st century.” And the Pacific Northwest’s Asian Pacific American communities are among the nation’s most dynamic! Consider becoming a business partner with their preferred sources of news and information — the Northwest Asian Weekly and Seattle Chinese Post! The Northwest Asian Weekly offers readers more news and advertising than any other Asian newspaper in the region.

Our readers trust us because they know our goal is to empower the Asian Pacific American community. In 1992, the Northwest Asian Weekly raised over $40,000 for a nursing home. So far, we have raised more than $2 million for charitable organizations. And every year the Northwest Asian Weekly Foundation sponsors important training programs for our future leaders–our youth.

With a committed readership of 25,000, the Northwest Asian Weekly can offers its readers more news and advertising than any other Asian newspaper. We pride ourselves on giving special promotional support to our business partners, including opportunities for feature articles and introductions to local community groups.
